Just Questions, No Answers
Do we have the right to pass laws that regulate moral issues? If we do have a right, then what happens when the higher percentage of people become wicked and pass evil laws? Also if we do have the right to pass laws to regulate moral behavior is it then up to the majority of people to do this, or do a few judges get to decide? Will passing laws help the people to stay righteous longer? If we do not have the right, then should we have laws about sex and minors, child pornography and other moral issues? If we pass no moral laws and let anything go within society, will this mean our ultimate decline? Should there be criteria, such as, as long as it doesn’t infringe on someone who doesn’t consent it’s fine? If this is the case does the government have the right to say that I have to wear a seatbelt and that I can’t buy milk from my neighbor? Doesn’t this take away my right to choose? How does me buying milk from my neighbor infringe on anyone elses rights? What is the role of Government anyway?
