    I'm saying ALL laws- not just American- are based on morality. I've specifically argued against morality justifying them.

    Thanks for the clarification

    However, I disagree. I think that some laws are based on economics without concern for morality.

    Which side does it for reasons that are (more) consistent with the constitution, and that promote the general welfare while protecting people's rights?
    Very true - the problem lay in how our respective sides define the above. That's why we have majority rule and a representative government (though thanks to the conservative Supreme Court, we're fast becoming an oligarchy).

    any law could be categorized that way, silly question.

    Youd have to be more specific and when people use that line its typically used in a way when morals are being used,rights are being ignored and forced is used only on those that dont agree.

    perfect example would be gay marriage.

    Those trying to stop it are trying to deny others RIGHTS and use force, only people that SHARE thier morals would be allowed to marry and the others are not and thier rights are violated.

    If its legal, no rights are violated and force isnt used against those that do not believe in it as they are STILL free and allowed to not be in a gay marriage, in reality they are not effected.

    Please be more specific so actual answers can be given
