If people want to believe in the invisible man in the sky, or any variation on that theme, then fine. But, above all, we need a free secular society
with a complete seperation of church of state. I can almost almost understand why a person would believe in a deity, but how you can reasonably oppose
secularism is beyond me. It's all about the preservation of religious (or indeed non-religious) freedom, and the protection of the minorities in such
a society. What is so bad about that?
Also, the level of debate over the so-called 'victimless crimes' is insane! Why should a religious fanatic (or any other kind of fanatic for that
matter) be able to dictate what i can and can't do in the privacy of my own home, or anywhere else, when I am causing no harm to any other person.
Drug use and distribution, prostitution, adult pornography etc. should be fully legalised in my opinion as they harm no-one. If someone does not want
to partake in them then so be it, but said people should not be able to stop others from doing so.
The relationship between law and morality is too complex to fully address right now, but working out the best answer to our problems requires an
accepted definition to what the words themselves mean. For instance is morality an individual or communal concept? Both law and morality are
interconnected, and they influence each other, rightly or wrongly, to a great extent. This makes any argument far less clear-cut than one would wish
We don't live in a perfect world, and never will, but things could certainly be made a little bit better if that idiot Santorum could be removed from
politics for good. Just saying. Why people would vote for him is beyond me.
