Private choices have public consequences. Always have, always will. Some choices emancipate, others enslave.
This holds true for politicians, ministry leaders, entertainers, and the neighbor next door. To be a person is to externalize one's inner thought world, whether that world is one of light and truth or of darkness and destruction.
This is inescapable and cannot be legislated away. And you can be sure that those who are stumbling as persons in the arena of their private lives will be weakened, if not failing, as persons in the arena of their public lives.
