Free Will

I'm always amused with the Christians understanding of "Free will".
On one had ‘Free will’, God setting us free with the idea that when we move and make a decision towards God it will be on our own will. That the decision will be pure and whole hearted because God has not cohersed us in any way.
The greatest example of this is in Jesus teaching of the 'prodigal son'.

Interestingly Christians are the the main legislators against freedom. Eg Euthanasia, same sex marriage, porn etc etc.
(I think its a completely differn't thing legislating from hurting and abusing others. Guns, abortion may fit into this category)
Christians appears to oppose things more from loosing a way of life, than giving freedom.

But then maybe we Christians don't have a choice....
