    I despise anyone who abides a law because it's a law.

    It may have been the law of the land..... but that law did not allow two consenting adults the right to have a sexual relationship in private. If being in love was deemed as a crime then something was very wrong with it and needs addressing today.

    What nonsense!

    Without law we cannot have society. That in no way means it shouldn't be challenged. Challenging the law in order to change it is not the same as ignoring it.

    and what on earth does your quote have to do with democratic law?

    Does that include every other single person it affected?
    Lots of laws have changed over the years you cant parden all people who may have fallen foul of the law at the time

    You are missing the point entirely. Should we apply todays laws retrospectively to everyone who lived before us?

    Do we need to go back throughout the archives and convict almost everyone of historical note for falling foul of todays laws?

    You can't do it one way and not the other.

    More 'Roche Five' than pain.

    Reading the first bit, I was actually going to disagree with you Gordonbennettsmoustache (and in the strongest possible terms young man ;-)) and then I read it all and thought you actually make some very good points, none more so than the very last one mate, I'm an open-minded kind of guy and would never have allowed such a law in the first place (if it was my decision that is) but I think I can live with how you've expressed it there, well written bud.
