Moral Police

With all the hoo-ha over what people did in the bedroom, I have to ask:

Is there ANY PART of the Holy Books (Quran, Bible, Torah) that encourages people to actually set up a police/body to actually police people’s sexual behaviour? I do know in the Old Testament people actually stoned adulterers and the like, but does actual phrase/verse in the Holy Books (not all these Letters and Hadith books) exist to deal with an official body as opposed to promoting nosy neighbours?

Thanks. Crossposting this to LJ in hopes someone can help too.

Also, I apologise for spamming your flist. I just realised this morning one of the entries isn’t supposed to be there.
