What people find acceptable or unacceptable is relevant to construction of a civilization. Social mores need not be rational, but they must be present if one would avoid anarchy.
No...we have a constitution that guarantees certain personal liberties. Your mores and constructions of morality be damned when it comes to upholding those liberties.

Your theory might work well in some tribal society, but not in ours.

I also find it hilarious that liken two women kissing to the advent of anarchy. Talk about an appeal to the absurd.

But Gordon's statement is irrelevant and lacking truth. Where in the article does it say they did any more than kiss on the cheek?

I wasn't commenting on the article, but on Gordon's statement.

I understand. I, too, was commenting on Gordon's statement. Everyone knows he wasn't actually commenting on the article because his statement held no relevance to the article. I just thought it warranted pointing out.

Actually what the majority finds acceptable is generally what the laws are. Using your argument prositution would be legal everywhere along with pot sales. Sorry, the majority says no.

Completely untrue. You have zero comprehension of how a constitutional republic actually operates.

No, your fatasizing that gay lifestyles are accepted everywhere shows where your understanding of life in general is.

It doesn't matter whether they are accepted or not. I was speaking in terms of legality and how the law works. Do try to keep up next time, sport.

At one time, what was legal and what was moral used to closely parallel each other. Too bad that has changed.

But since most laws are written by lawyers, why would they let something incovenient like morals get in the way?

Your morality is yours and yours alone. Laws should, and more and more they do, set rules for interaction between people in the society and with their government. Laws should never reflect moral approval or disapproval.
