Morality In USA

Who/what defines morality?
Personal judgment
Collective reasoning (by society or government)
Religion
Does a secular government have the right to enforce morality? ie. Should abortion be a personal choice, with no state-government interference, in Wyoming?
Yes
No
Depends
Should media such as movies and video games be available to all ages regardless of its content rating (ie, PG-13, R, MA).
Yes, there is no apparent harm
No, age restrictions are appropriate
Why not? Children (minors) now-a-days are already very exposed to violence, cursing, and sexuality.
Is morality today changing or declining?
Changing: As times change, peoples' perceptions of how to behave are bound to evolve.
Declining: People tend to do whatever they please and disregard notions of right and wrong.

People should be allowed to marry whoever they please
Marriage is an aspect of religion. Government should be secular.
It should to create order and maintain morality
During the 1700s, in the south, was racism justifiable? note: most of our founding founders were racist

No, men are always expected to be courteous
Yes, double standards exist for a reason
Since America claims to be a secular government, should practices like the president placing his hand on the Bible when being sworn into office be revised?
Yes, a secular government should not contain any trace of religion within it
No, it is an American tradition that should be upheld
I do not care
In Luzerne County, Pa, a women was given a ticket for disorderly conduct for calling someone an "asshole" in public. Should profanity laws be enforced?
No, enforcing such laws conflicts with the first amendment.
Depends on the severity of the situation
