Yes we should not coerce or force others, but our legislation is driven by our faith and belief in what is right. Proponents of anti-smoking bans are not forcing their will on others, but doing what they believe would be for the utmost good from their perspective.
We are united with a Christ who seems not to have done much of note for most of his life.
