    From a random snippet I picked up, moral right and wrong is a THEORETICAL BASIS of laws. In reality, lobbies, revenue-collecting and sordid politics are the reason we have a lot of laws, or at least a lot of the intricacies involved in certain laws. I think the examples should be obvious enough.

    And then seeing the crux of Solly's argument he is obviously right. Homosexuality used to be a criminal act because it transgressed social boundaries, not because it was immoral.

    what..... The crux of why it was illegal is because it was immoral... or atleast thats what they said... and still say...
    Like gays weren't a problem in rome and stuff.....-_- IDK MAN IDK Also, ya i knew it was long, but i tried smallering it, and then the website that gave the link doesn't save the link and since you can't upload to your signature from your computer(WHY CAN'T YOU DO THAT BY THE WAY??) so i guess i'll just go with the charmander gif.

    It's about time ElijahWyatt weighed in
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    No, they say it was immoral. It actually just transgressed social boundaries, and you proved my point by saying it was fine in Ancient Rome. Ancient Rome was a civilisation with some concept of morality, at least towards the latter stages, but homosexuality was rife. England under James I was extremely superstitious and religious but homosexuality was fine then, merely because they had a less defined sense of sexuality.

    what laws are are an attempt to engineer society into a certain way deemed desirable by the makers of the laws. i dont think im going to read the preceding argument.

    No that's religion. Some laws are that some laws aren't. Laws in the united states are supposed to be the will of the people (was the intent atleast not neccesarily that this is the way it is, but its the way it is SUPPOSED to be) or what is the best thing for the people wether they will it or not.

    Yep, except i said it so that everyone would understand that was what i meant all along(WHAT I'VE BEEN SAYING).
    In the U.S. the "makers" are supposed to be the people. Meaning we said the same thing, in a way.

    However what you said is not always true. Some laws are made from greed and power, not what is best for society/what society wants, even if the laws are supposed to be made from the will of the people, meaning the system is flawed.
