[quote=“Mother Theresa”]How about this one Bossman: when it’s a stupid law.
Why is it legal to smoke one plant, tobacco, that kills millions of people ever year, and not to smoke another, marijuana, that has never killed anyone?
Both are stupid and cause needless harm
if I choose to grow a few pot plants and smoke them in the privacy of my own home, what harm have I done?
Only to yourself, that’s your choice, but still legally wrong.
Or prostitution. If a grown woman decides she wants to earn a little money by having sex with consenting adults, what harm is done?
Spread of disease and let’s face it contributing to the decay of society. If it were your mother how’d you feel?
Or if one lives in a jurisdiction where it is legal to stick your thing in one of your wife’s orifices but not another, what harm is done if you do the forbidden act in the privacy of your bedroom?
Gosh, Americans have it real bad.
Where do these concepts of right and wrong that you speak of come from? Aren’t those issues of morality that are derived largely from religious beliefs that others may or may not share with you? Aren’t right and wrong subjective notions on which reasonable minds will differ?
No, I don’t think so. Everyone has a moral compass and knows what is right and wrong. However, due to a selfish society the line between right and wrong has become unclear and people wish for things to be open to interpretation, largely to suit their own desires. My concept of right and wrong has nothing to do with religious beliefs but ,regardless of religion, that commonality that prevails in civilized societies about what is right and wrong, with the exception of Holland which has lost the plot..[/quote]
