    Re: Is it the government's job to regulate Morality

    Government regulation of morality/ethical behavior is required for societal stability and is done so through laws preventing violence and the removal of elements that threaten personal freedoms. The balance of this process is corrupted when religion is used for the implementation of these regulations as the laws are inherently biased against anyone of differing opinion.
    Unless these regulations fall under these categories:

    Prevention of violent action.
    Protection of the citizenry.
    Infrastructure improvement/creation.
    Majority approved Constitutional adjustment.
    ....and a few others....

    The regulation becomes an invasion of rights.

    I'm not clear why you limit the laws to just citizens since it applies to those who are here legally and illegally, as well. Clearly the remaining amendments are not covered in the 10.

    It prevents other countries and terrorist groups from trying to rip our freedoms from us so yes, that is a part of it.

    Depends on your point of view. Some base whether a country is 1st world or not based on the countries morality. Some base it off of technological superiority. Some base it on a blending of the two. I'm one of those that base it on the last example.

    That term "bare minimum" is subjective. As long as that bare minimum doesn't tread on peoples rights though, I'm fine with that.

    Incorrect. There would be no laws against discrimination, PERIOD. Base it on race, age, gender, etc.... However, homosexuality is an afront to society in general and would be banned under the Morality laws.

    Prostitution would be totally legal. Of course it would be one of the only vocations a woman would be allowed to engage in, and only with her father/husband's approval.

    This whole post is a contradiction. How can there be no laws against discrimination "PERIOD", based on race, age, gender when there would be laws against homosexuality AND requiring that a woman gets permision to do something with her own body?

    Women don't have rights. They belong to the dominant Male (father, brother, husband, etc....) in their family.

    And this is why I will never take anything you say about morality seriously.

    BTW: Noticed that you ignored the part about there not being any discrimination and yet there will be laws against homosexuality because it would be banned. Even without the women part that in itself is discriminatory.

    That does not imply such. Just like the number 0 being non-positive and non-negative, there are actions which we would not debate as morally right nor wrong (e.g. breathing). Please work on your logical reasoning skills.

    No it's not. Women and homosexuals are not human beings. Therefore one cannot discriminate against them.
