12. THIS.

AND what H2O Man said.

"The real issue is that Americans no longer accept the law as the highest authority in the land. They believe private morality is. We were once a nation of laws, not men and certainly not private morality. That has changed. And while private morality is all well and good and an excellent way of living one's life, it is not a good way of organizing a society, as the last forty years have shown.

I am unsure of the author of this quote; I may have read it on a blog somewhere.
Private morality can and should inform one's outlook on and approach to life, but should not become a point upon which to dictate public policy. Not from a republican, not from a Democrat, not from anyone.
