If the argument is true, then, should we legislate immorality?
In the absence of any fixed moral norms, how could you legislate civil law based upon a constantly variable moral relativism? Daily, or weekly, or hourly re-legislation?
Those who say we cannot legislate morality seek to avoid and oppose the morality of the majority, or destroy it. A common ethos is what makes a unique people, and this ethos-defined unique people-hood is what makes a nation. The guiding ethos of the American people is the Judeo-Christian Ethos of Western culture, developed through the long history of Western civilization.
The USA is, by population, fully eighty six percent Christian, eight to ten percent Jewish, and fully ninety eight percent of us openly profess belief in God. That is our make-up. We have, or are supposed to have, a fully representative government, and it serves us – we do not serve the government. We the people grant government the authority it needs to defend our shores, maintain our common currency, ensure domestic tranquility, legislate, adjudicate and execute our laws, and nothing more.
Our common guiding ethos is what sets us apart, makes us different, and makes of us a nation. An ethos may rightly be considered a collective conscience. The rightly formed conscience of the citizen properly raised in the religion of Christianity or Judaism reflects his morality, or his sense of right versus wrong. Morality is religion-based. Collective morality, or the morality of a tradition and a population, is, precisely, ethos. It is the sense of right-and-wrong by which we guide our lives.
Why would anyone with any common sense want any laws legislated that would oppose this obvious, clear and present common sense of right and wrong?
I submit that our common ethos – the Judeo-Christian Ethos - is the very foundation of all of our civil law. It has been the culturally instinctive basis for all Western Culture common law since even before Charlemagne.
To turn it around and legislate against the common ethos of the people is to reverse rolls, making the people the servant of government, and the government no longer representative of the will of the governed. It would mark a turn back toward ancient feudalism, where some citizen rights were recognized, and beyond feudalism, into barbarism, and beyond, into anarchy.
Take a long hard look at the political opposition to the Judeo-Christian Ethos, and you will most likely see Marxists of various spot and stripe. From the naïve, idealistic and super-simplistic useful idiots to the Keynesian economic interventionist useful idiots, on up to the potential future dictators, who are not idiots, but evil. Whatever else he may be, I do not believe that Obama is stupid. He knows full well what he is doing.
The last major historical personages of Western Culture who rejected and disavowed Christianity in the interest of Marxism were Lenin, Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini. To reject the religion at the root of Western Civilization is to begin the return to the barbarism that preceded it. Well, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini all turned away from Christ, all were disciples of Marx, and all returned major populations to savage barbarism.
Remember the three favorite pithy sayings of the typical Marxist bureaucrat on the upward march to power:
Note well that one cannot disavow and damn Western Civilization as Marxism does without similarly disavowing and damning Christianity, which brought Western Civilization into being and remains at the roots of Western Culture, and at the roots of Western Culture Common Law.Those who would not legislate morality would prefer to follow the “ethos” of BMDFP10 and Marxism. That is the “ethos” of the SLIMC1 , and the “ethos” that prevails in upper academia today. But it is not representative of the people. Yet.
Again, morality is religion based. Irreligion equals amorality.
Morality is exactly and precisely what should be legislated.
The notion that you cannot legislate morality is so stupid as to be suicidal.
Please God, and live forever.

I think the American People-hood Pages is a great idea. And Vic, I hope you will forgive me for making one small critique. Although the word is "Judaism", I think that the correct spelling is "Judeo-Christian", not "Judao-Christian". I could be wrong, though. Perhaps both are correct. Anyway, I am off to read "You cannot legislate morality is the false claim of the immoral". God bless you, and keep fighting the Good Fight. Know, Brother that you do not stand alone.

I think you are right, or mostly right. Two other people have told me the same thing off-line, and all good English sources I look to seem to favor Judeo-Christian. The problem is, it is a miss-spelling I have used all over this site, on too many pages to count. It will take a special project, going through the whole site, page by page, line by line, to correct them all. One of these days, when there is nothing in me to write and no pressing tasks to do, I will undertake that little project.

Vic, Excellent article. I seem to recall reading somewhere (perhaps it was Francis Schaeffer or C.S. Lewis) that morality can come from only three possible sources: Says God, Says Us, or Says Me. Says Me can result only in chaos, Says Us can result only in tyranny, while Says God can result only in giving fallen man a fighting chance.

Please note the language and tone of this monitored Website. This is not the place to just stack up vulgar one-liners and crude rejoinders. While you may support, oppose or introduce any position or argument, submissions must meet our high Roman Catholic and Constitutional American standards of Truth, logical rigor and civil discourse. We will not participate in merely trading insults, nor will we tolerate participants merely trading insults. Participants should not be thin-skinned or over sensitive to criticism, but should be prepared to defend their arguments when challenged. If you don’t really have a coherent argument or counter-argument of your own, sit down and don’t embarrass yourself. Nonsensical, obscene, blindly & doggedly anti-Catholic, anti-American, immoral or merely insulting submissions will not be published here. If you have something serious to contribute to the conversation, be prepared to back it up, keep it clean, keep it civil, and it will be published. We humbly apologize to all religious conservative thinkers for the need to even say these things, but the Hard Left is what it always was, the New Leftist Liberals are what they are, and the Internet is what it is.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

The Fag Identity Crisis, or "Springsteen Syndrome", that now owns the USCCB. The USCCB's Catholic Fag Identity Crisis highlights their linguistic abuse of "discrimination" as done with "Distribution".
Madame Hillary let the cat out of the bag on Extraterrestrial Contact. You never see Madame Hillary and Mazlan Othman at the same time, do you? They may be the same shape-shifting alien being.
Bruce Springsteen can't help it; he really needs to use the lady's room. With the periodic gender swings of the dreaded Springsteen Syndrome, comes the compulsion to just walk into women's restrooms and locker rooms.

Definition of Anarchy: Opposition to State Authority in favor of - well - Gangs. They said it couldn’t be done; but even the most cursory Definition of Anarchy shows it to be even more stupid than Communism.
Bill O’Reilly’s Elitist Pompous Assininity. Bill O’Reilly put the Pomp in Pompous Assininity.
The Un-Godly Drive toward Worldly Perfectibility. On Secular goals of Human Perfectibility, Worldly Perfectibility and Universal Perfectibility.
God Denial = Nature Denial = Science Denial = Nonsense. Falling into God Denial always leads into simple foolishness, and that path always ends in utter insanity.
The REAL Science Deniers almost always turn out to be in serious God Denial. To ignore the absence of Scientific Evidence is to ignore Nature, and be a true Science Denier.

Concerning the "Good Without God" twits: What, exactly, is good without God? Good without God? How? If there be no God, then, exactly what is good, what is evil, and what are they based on?
You cannot legislate morality is the false claim of the immoral. We MUST legislate morality, as long as the legislature is representative of the people. Otherwise, what is legislated reflects the whim of the dictator(s) of the moment.
