What holds more weight, Morality or legality?


I'll use a two people example first: Penn State which legally fulfilled their obligation but morally let kids get molested. Second: Mitt Romney legally becoming wealthy while morally didn't invest in America. This can be said for marriage, Religion, wars, arrests and so on. Can being legal and moral happen at the same time?

    Be responsible for our own thoughts and actions toward others . . . such a simple and small act to care and love your neighbor or the driver on the freeway that accidentally cut you off. Look inside your heart/emotions and be compassionate.

    I think morals are personal to each individual, although they may be culturally generated. Your morality is a special part of your spirit. I agree with you on the legality.

    Very good answer. I make a distinction in my answer elsewhere, between democracies and non-democracies. Because in non-democracies, the laws only reflect the morals of the rulers. But in democracies, certainly everything you say is very true.

    If there is a God, I doubt that's what he intended.
