You Can't Legislate Morality

Written By : Gary Wonning

It’s been tried many times and it never works.

There are  always those who think they can control people’s behavior by passing laws against such things as alcohol,drugs,and even abortion.

Prohibition in the 1920s should have taught us something,but seemingly it didn’t. Laws were passed banning the production and sale of alcohol. What happened? People began making it themselves,sometimes with disastrous results.

Many people died from alcohol that was produced in a way that it became poisonous, making people sick and even killing some.

When are we going to learn that more government interference and excessive laws help no one.

The path to a better life is not following the laws of man,but the laws of God. His laws are the only laws that make a difference.

Only when an individual has a strong moral and spiritual base do they have a moral compass that will guide them and keep them out of harm’s way regardless of the path and the difficulties they may encounter on life’s journey.

Morality is entirely an individual choice, government can’t and shouldn’t try to legislate it.

Government needs to stay out of the morality business and begin only doing what it was designed to do,protect us from invasion, provide a monetary system and only make laws that guarantee our right to life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

We can get along just fine without their help.
