    So what you are saying is that you know (without a doubt) that most non-religious people don't find adultery wrong.

    We'll add that to your "list".

    It makes sense doesn't it? Non-religious people can't have morals because they don't have a religion to give them morals. They murder, rape and steal more because of a lack of religiously instilled morals. This is common sense!!!

    I think that it is utterly pthetic that upwards of 80% of those polled here think that adultery NOT be a criminal offense punishable by jailtime. It is indicative of the lack of morals and values that Western Society has embraced.

    Its part of that whole pluralism/liberty shindig.

    Why should the gov't punish people for how they conduct relationships? Is it part of their business if you did not establish a contract mentioning such provisions? I think not.

    Indicative of the lack of morals and values that Western Society has embraced? I'd think if that were true we'd be more lawless. Actually, since you brought it up, not every moral point is law, you can practice marital fidelity without wanting to make adultery a crime. The two (beliefs/morality and what should be law) are not mutrully inclusive.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Pluralism, in cases of adutlery, is not a particularly valid or constructive point, nto that you are claiming that it is, but it is for a society to choose, but to the same degree, it is a societies choice to make bad choices, so that is not much of an argument either...


    Why should the gov't punish people for how they conduct relationships? Is it part of their business if you did not establish a contract mentioning such provisions? I think not.
    For the same reason that government is involved in legalizing marriage in the first place. Why should they be involved in any aspect of how people conduct relationships? If it is OK or logical for them to be in one aspect, then the same can be said for the other...

    You can't have a provision calling for jailtime if your spouse cheats on you, so I'm not sure why you even brought that up.

    I think that we are more lawless than you are attempting to understand. I am not sure where it was said or indicated that I do not understand that not every moral point is a law, especially when the moral point that we are talking about is not a law... but since you brought it up, there is no reason that more moral points can not be made into laws.

    As if our jails and prisons aren't clogged up enough as it is.

    Religion and politics (laws) should be completely separate, though much of common law is based on some religious belief in one way or another.

    IMO - we need to be reducing our legislation and enforcing the laws that we have in place now.
