Reverent & Free has an entertaining post teeing off on the “American Family Association of Indiana’s” Micah Clark’s letter to the editor critical of Indiana Third Congressional District candidate Dr. Tom Hayhurst for being insufficiently anti-sex. Apparently Dr. Hayhurst didn’t support some sort of ordinance regulating businesses associated with sexuality and that made Mr. Clark mad.
So, there you have it, Dr. Tom Hayhurst: champion of small businesses and small government! (I’ve noticed that organizations like the AFA are usually in favor of “government small enough to fit into your bedroom.”)
I don’t know anything about the ordinance in question, so I can’t comment authoritatively, but I get pretty tired of political busybodies trying to use government to legislate their particular sense of propriety. I prefer that government respect its citizens enough to let them make their own moral decisions, so long as those decisions don’t “break the legs or pick the pockets” of other citizens.
