Why I Am Politically/Governmentally Libertarian

Mosiah

This single verse from the 29 chapter of the book of Mosiah from the Book of Mormon, verse 12 in particular, sums up why I am politically/governmentally libertarian and oppose any law that would punish the act of any individual or group of individuals that does not hart he equal rights of other individuals and group of individuals.

"12 Now it is better that a man should be judged of God than of man, for the judgments of God are always just, but the judgments of man are not always just. (Book of Mormon, Mosiah, Chapter 29)."

Henc in all cases where an individual's actions may be in opposition to God's laws and commandments, but which do not harm any individual or groups of individuals in his/her/their equal rights, I would rather God be the judge of that individual and have no human law prohibiting and punishing that action according to te judgments of man, for as we know, "for the judgments of God are always just, but the judgments of man are not always just."
