How can someone place their own perspective of what is immoral on someone else?
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.

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...
