Wisdom from the comments

Vox fisks VDH for us but what struck home for me was the comment from the wise TZ

"Consentual government is like consentual sex - it is still evil outside of the proper context (Natural law limits to scope, and Sacremental Marriage respectively).

You end up in a different place when you assume your rights (or your body and soul to continue the parallel) don't come from God, and you conditionally and responsibly give up some for specific purposes like keeping the peace. That different place you end up to on the nonnarrow road is called Hell."
