Your opinion on "moral" laws?
Society needs them- fair or not
Some are a form of religious persecution
Some are a form of discrimination
Some are needed, they are absolute morals held by most every religion (for example, stealing)
The majority should determine the laws
Some are "tyranny of the majority" and are wrong
They are needed- other religions are wrong
All are needed otherwise society would breakdown into moral decay
These laws should be reviewed by an independant panel of judges before enacted
I don't care one way or the other
They are all wrong
