Point to ponder

Conservatives wish for the Government to enforce Torah law when it comes to homosexuality, but not when it comes to Tzedakka.[*] Why is that? Why are pious, moral, God-fearing conservatives content to let every man do what is right in his own eyes when it comes to caring for the poor, the sick, and the orphaned, but not when it comes a private act between consensual adults?

I'm serious.

[*]By which I mean that they wish to have it banned, or otherwise restricted, in keeping with the idea that it is an "abomination." (And, ever mind that other abominations such as eating shellfish are gleefully accepted by the majority, and performed without shame in hedonistic pleasure domes all over the country.)
