Comments: "ZETA:" Either the Child or the Parent of PETA. You Decide.
Someone once asked why Florida does not have any laws against people having sex with animals. I was more shocked that humanity needs laws to remind people not to have sex with animals.

You cannot legislate morality.

However, one can apparently legislate immorality with some success.

Laws can make the immoral behave -- at least openly -- as if they were moral. Too much of the time, these days, what is legal isn't moral and what is illegal isn't immoral, and people are too stupid to understand the difference.

Actually, Bastiat, said it better than I can -- When law and morality are in contradiction, the citizen finds himself in the cruel dilemma of either losing his moral sense or of losing respect for the law.
