  • Cont... So, why have they not been thrown out of the law books? Because in my area it is the "Bible Belt" and there would be an uproar. Eventually, the majority of people's opinion will change and what once was immoral will become acceptable. Some things will always be considered immoral (murder, rape, etc), Other "new" things will be considered immoral, while some will change from "immoral" to accepted and eventually to moral. It is the majority of people who decide what is immoral and what is not immoral. I would much rather have this than 1 person (or a few people) telling me what is moral and what is not. But ultimately, it is YOU (general you) who decides what is immoral and what is not.

  • Because we have the freedom to share what we think is immoral or not... what the other person does with it is up to them. You don't have to agree.. but we do have the right and the freedom to say what we believe.

  • Immoral things change over the years. For example, it use to be immoral for woman to wear pants. The decision on what is or is not immoral comes from the majority of people and their beliefs. This could change from region to region or country to country. I am taking an Intro to Criminal Justice class this summer and we briefly talked about the law and immorality and if the law should be involved with immorality/morality. At first, one might say no, they should not, but is it not immoral for a 42 year old to have sex with a 8 year old? So, ultimately it was decided that the law should deal with immorality. In my state (Georgia), it is illegal to give blow jobs, have sex with a married person, have sex with someone that is not your spouse, and to engage in sodomy. Do people actually get charged with these crimes, no, because they are slowly fading out as being "immoral". Cont...

  • For me, what is immoral is what the Bible teaches against. Like homosexuality, premarital sex, divorce, etc.

  • regardless of what you think is immoral, you don't have the right to impose that on others. when society decides something is immoral it's different. that's multiple people coming together to agree upon certain standards.

  • Sadly Jeremysmom... the law was put there to protect people... and yes what used to be imoral will become accepted by those in the world .. ( not by those who follow Christ) it will come to anything goes and its already getting there... and our country is not what it used to be... its messier now.. thats what sin does but people who engage on these these do not see it as sin but as pleasure. They indeed have the freedom to do these things but it doesnt mean its right.
