Legislating Morality advocates a moral base for America without sacrificing religious and cultural diversity, debunking the myth that "morality can't be legislated" and amply demonstrating how liberals, moderates, and conservatives alike exploit law to promote good and curtail evil.

This book is the first history of the Mann Act's often bizarre career, from its passage to the amendment that finally laid it low. In David J. Langum's hands, the story of the Act becomes an entertaining cautionary tale about the folly of legislating private morality.   Legislating religion vs. legislating morality is also covered, as are short sections on specific moral issues like abortion and homosexuality. Appendixes include the Declaration of Independence and Amendments to the Constitution. The book is clear, well-written and well-researched, as you would expect from Norman Geisler or Frank Turek. It is not dry.5/5(5).   'Legislating Morality' answers those objections and advocates a moral base for America without sacrificing religious and cultural diversity.

Legislating morality, on the other hand, is about how people relate to each other. The legislation of morality can be, and often is, based on moral beliefs contained in the Bible and other religious documents.   Laws against murder and theft have roots in Scripture.
