A truly strange, but strangely common, argument (2)

When people argue against others' liberty, they often argue that they themselves will suffer temptation from the exercise of that liberty. For example, mixing with people of different religious backgrounds will apparently provoke believers to commit idolatry and incest. To me, that argument says more about the believers' own mindset than about the power of that provocation.
