Bring the rule of law into question and society will crash down around our ears. Laws based off moral values have been enacted since Roman times. In
fact, many jurisdictions are directly descended from the Roman rule of law. Granted, the legal landscape needs to keep up with changing times, and
some laws have become obsolete as a result.
But Morality is subjective. Break a religious cardinal rule, God will punish you in accordance with your beliefs. The law is more universal, and
definitely more of a deterrent. Break the law, society and or a jury of your peers will punish you. Some would say the ten commandments was the first
example of religion being codified into common law. So yes, they're distantly related.
Going back to your original post, I don't see your point. Most laws were created from a common moral standing for the good of society as a whole. If
there's a specific law you think is morally unjust, please enlighten us.
