So murder would be legal if it wasn't.

lol there are other reasons to be against murder than just morality.

Like we couldn't have a functioning society if we all murdered each other.

Are you seriously suggesting that without morality we'd all be shanking our families with glee?

Some people would be able to function quite well. What makes you get to be so judgmental of others?

We should do what you say because you said so?

Do you read? It has nothing to do with what I say. It's about all people, in society. We've decided as a whole that we don't want to live in a society where people murder each other.

Yeah, I know. It's been part of our society ever since Moses came down with the Ten Commandments. You got another reason?

Lol you honestly think before that nobody ever thought not to slaughter their friends and families?

cowboy Here and There
10/23/14 8:26 am

It's the law, brought down by Moses, and passed around throughout the world including the U.S. We have legislated morality since the founding of this nation. The Ten Commandments are even depicted on our Government buildings.

Remove those laws and it will be anarchy.

Maybe you need the law not to murder people. That's okay. It's good to know about yourself.

You should be thanking Christians for creating a society where murder is illegal. Instead, you have to fight against it. Legislating morality has been pretty good, huh?

Lol now Moses was a Christian? 2000 years before Christ was even born?? Okay pal.

You do support the systematic murder of unborn children, through the Government, so you do support murder in certain situations.

I'm crazy? You just said that the Ten Commandments are what's keeping us from anarchy, you said Moses was a Christian, and you said abortions are systematic murder. Smh.

10/23/14 1:33 pm

When did I say Moses was a Christian? Please tell me.

SFLiberal
10/23/14 1:40 pm

You said we should thank Christians and you specified Moses earlier and when kermie pointed it out you said, "I know. The truth hurts."

cowboy Here and There
10/23/14 2:13 pm

When I said the truth hurts I meant the revelation that legislating morality is a good thing for Kermie, after he incorrectly said that Moses was a Christian.

cowboy Here and There
10/23/14 2:23 pm

It is what I said. Can't help it if you people twist my words. Kermie called Moses a Christian, I didn't.

"It's been part of our society ever since Moses came down with the Ten Commandments." "You should be thanking Christians for creating a society where murder is illegal." To me, it sounds like you said Moses was Christian.

Christians believe in the Ten Commandments, do they not?

Of course they do! But, put your two statements together. Read the logical conclusion.

cowboy Here and There
10/24/14 8:01 am

The logical conclusion is that Kermie should be thanking God for the wisdom of our laws.

That's almost all we DO legislate! Murder, theft, armed robbery, assault, rape, endangering others, negligence - all morality.

Nah that's just stuff necessary for a functioning society. That's it's also "immoral" to some people is irrelevant coincidence.

Everyone legislates their morality. Morality is just a person's mere opinion about certain kinds of things and we all vote our opinions when it comes to politics.

If we didn't legislate morality, murder would be legal.

In a basic sense yes. Laws against murder, fraud, etc are all derived from moral principles. We consider those actions to be wrong and therefore we legislate against them.
