Don't let it happen by Insanity-Cake Don't let it happen by Insanity-Cake
I've been really bothered lately by the thought that my rights as an american citizen and woman could be taken away from me by a biased leader. and i'ts a scary thought. what will I do when the government starts telling us what to believe and what out morals should be. what about the next generation? will they have to grow up being force fed biased information? I don't want to live in a world like that.

This is acceptable: "I can't do that because it violates my Religious Beliefs!"

I KNOW. As a Christian, MY morales and beliefs are not taken into account and are just tossed aside. 
Schools are no longer allowing anyone to wear a cross necklace or anything that symbolizes worshipping God and even if its hidden DETENTION.
A Muslim wears a hijab? THEY DO NOT GET IN TROUBLE. LIKE WTF THOSE OFFEND ME BUT I DO NOT MAKE A BIG STINK ABOUT IT 
ALso,, because of ATHEISTS THEY ARE THINKING OF CHANGING THE BIBLE 
WTF
AMERICA WAS FOUNDED FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM NOT TO HAVE THOSE RIGHTS TAKEN AWAY

I like the idea of this stamp, but I'd just replace the word, "morals," with the word, "beliefs." Some examples of good morals for anyone would be, "Don't kill or injure people for no reason," "Don't harass or abuse others," and "Treat others the way you would want to be treated." These are good morals because they are logical in that they at least promote common courtesy toward other human beings. Beliefs are different because, whether they can be considered good or bad, are usually just beliefs that are promoted under the guise of morality. Some examples would be, "Public nudity is wrong and harmful," "Gay people shouldn't be allowed to marry," "Abortions are wrong because fetuses are human beings," "Your sexuality is a choice," or "People shouldn't have sex before marriage." For some reason, all of these beliefs tend to be supported by the American government, and, in my opinion, are very illogical and harmful toward people's well-deserved personal rights and freedoms. I consider these to be good examples of false morality, and I hate how the United States is so far behind some other countries when it comes to social issues.

That is in essence what this is arguing for. This individual doesn;t want the beliefs and/or morals of others to be the basis for law, but expects that people respect what she perceives as her rights because that is what her morals dictate.
It's the fanatic fallacy: When you're in power, you must respect my rights because it's what your beliefs dictate, but when I'm in power I don't because my beliefs dictate that I don't.

you do realize that what rights you do have, are worthless without the morals not to abuse them, correct?

strict 'rights' without morals:
Abortion is illegal--->Reason: because it violates right to life
Suicide is legal--->R: Its your life, why should we care. --->Ditto, Voluntary human mutilation/sacrifice.
Polygamy is legal --->R: pursuit of happiness is a right
drinking/marriage/pregnancy before 21/18 is okay with consent--->R: who cares if she 10yrs old, its her life and her parents are okay with it.
Voluntary slavery is back baby!!
NO DRUG LAWS!
Army surplus now includes nuclear warheads.
Public nudity/sex is okay so long as you keep it hygienic for the rest of us--->R: So-long as my 5yr-old doesn't catch an STD, use the park bench/swing set however you want.
Porn movies for kids, starring kids!--->R: ... No comment besides 'yuck!'. 
Human experimentation is okay.
Your property, your rules so long as it doesn't go downwind to far./don't need warning shots.

...All(or at least most) things that might have gone on if your rights were enforced without any guidance from morals. since literally EVEYONE:bulletblue: has a set of Morals they operate by or under, your want is unrealistic unless your in the position to be a tyrant/dictator of your own country. otherwise, in this country at least, no one has that kind of authority. (unless the Koch brothers count;))

:bulletblue: Criminally insane individuals mostly included.

YES! REVOKE ALL THE  LAWS BASED OFF OF MORALS! GIVE US ALL THE RIGHTS OF OUR BODIES NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT EFFECTS OTHERS! GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO MURDER. GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO PUBLIC NUDITY. GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO ARSON. GIVE ME THE RIGHT TO NOT PAY TAXES. It is MY BODY, my MONEY, and MY LIFE, ISN'T IT? Doesn't that mean I should HAVE THE RIGHT TO THE ACTIONS? NO MATTER WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES or how I affect the LIVES of PEOPLE!?

hahahaha... best post here.

OP, your life is affected by "other people's morals" every day.  You're a daft wanker if you think otherwise.  Nowhere is free and it's incredibly selfish of you to think you know better than anyone else.

You don't seem bright enough to make the distinction so it's probably for the best that you aren't in charge of anything important as you'd likely muck it up.

I'm with LordElthibar on this one.

Do you know what the rule of law is?  Your freedom is restricted in order to protect more important human rights.  You don't have the freedom to steal, murder, cheat, or engage in human trafficking.  Do you know what defines the rule of law?  Morality and ethics.

I'm proudly antichoice when it comes to "choices" that are crimes against humanity.  I'm antichoice when it comes to the "choice" to trample underfoot human rights.

"I'm antichoice when it comes to the "choice" to trample underfoot human rights."

Because a zygote totally deserves human rights before it develops a basic sense of awareness. Just like an egg should be classed as USDA grade poultry.

Also, it's hilarious that you're equating a woman's right to preventing an unwanted or unhealthy pregnancy to human trafficking.


"I'm proudly antichoice when it comes to "choices" that are crimes against humanity."

That's really fucking cute. Way to drastically oversimplify a complex issue. You really like painting everyone who disagrees with you as evil people don't you? That's why you think invoking Godwin's law and Ad Hominem attacks are permissible in debate.

"Do you know what defines the rule of law?  Morality and ethics."

And by that, you mean YOUR sense of morality and ethics and that everyone else should obey your morals without criticizing them or debating on them because to you, every single issue is a simple black and white, good and evil binary with no room for debate or shades of nuance. You have decided that you are right and gays, women who have sex outside of wedlock, and pro-choice people are not only wrong, but awful people. You're really bad at this debate thing, dude, and it's because you absolutely refuse to even try to meet the other person halfway. Literally everything out of your mouth is either a strawman argument or some blatherskite aobut how everyone who disagrees is an awful person who is wrong and evil. Believe it or not, morality is not objective, and it is not exhempt from change or criticism. According to Biblical law, eating shellfish is an abomination and that children who talk back to their parents should be put to death.


Hey dude, if abortions and pre-marital sex and gay people upset your delicate ethics so, why not live in good ol' Iran? In Iran, women are faced with jail time for having premarital sex! and gay people are illegal! And if a woman gets raped, she has to marry the rapist and care for the rape-baby! Sounds wonderful, don't it?

I must first say, I absolutely love you for this.

And also, I feel the exact same way. I'm basically required to live in the US for two more years (I need to graduate high school), but I'm planning on going to a uni in the UK, but all of this talk about the personhood bills and making birth control harder to access and cutting funds from planned parenthood makes me want to apply to a boarding school now and finish out my schooling in Europe. I'm already feeling the "morals" being forced upon students at my high school in our health class, in which there is minimum actual sex education/drug and alcohol education (which all should be considered to be some of the most important subjects for young people to learn) and it just continually says "abstinence from alcohol, drugs and sex before marriage will help you lead a healthy life." (that's basically the exact wording from the textbook)

Morals should be respected if they have a logical and beneficial(towards scientific understanding, knowledge, and lastly, your goals) reason to exist. If they in some way slowdown progress, they should be disrespected and forgotten.

A good portion of these 'morals' floating about are not morality; its bigotry attempting to be justified by religious belief.
