  • No one has ever justified why homosexual marriage in particular is immoral.

  • America was founded on a nation of equality sadly, equality mean for the religious white men; not everybody. Every generation is bringing America to actual equality with like the civil rights movement, women's suffrage movement, & LGBT movement. It is changing for the better; considering how we started out with abusing slavery of human being just for free market capitalism and greed, we're slowly getting better and become better people as a whole.

  • USA's morals are not perfect, but they are better than they used to be (slavery, extreme sexism, etc.).

  • Mostly, America's morals have not changed for the better. Of course, there have been some improvements in some areas, such as allowing blacks and Indians to have equal rights as whites.

  • America moral? Please. More like hypocrites actually. Here is the definition of American morality. It is okay to bomb everyone and invade their countries to promote "peace" and make money. Who cares that drones have killed 10 times more innocent people than supposedly guilty people. Look at who has caused the most real damage in the world in the past 25 years --- it is us. We are in a perpetual state of war and incarcerate more than any other country. America buys into it's own hype.

  • They've gotten worse, by large. We're talking about "by large" here. I'll give you the abbreviated version of the story. Crime has increased. The dirtiness of media and common speech has increased. The leaders of our country kill civilians for money. And speaking of money? Money has become the new religion here. Traditional values need not apply- money is the new god. People in this country seem always prepared to make money through whatever means possible- honest or dishonest. The lines between right and wrong have become "blurred" because mainstream media makes it look like they're becoming blurred. Making people believe there is no good or evil easily appears to justify evil and immoral acts. Pornography, crime, degradation of language, degradation of media, mass murders, obsession with money, drugs, murder of civilians overseas in the name of liberty, political corruption, and, worst of all, the disappearance of right and wrong- what are we doing to ourselves? Welcome to the fledgling United States of Sodom and Gomorrah.

If any of the Abrahamic religions (or several others) is true, then homosexuality is immoral because the giver of law and morality (God) said it is wrong. The only way that I can think of for homosexuality to be morally okay is for atheism to be true. If atheism is true, then there is no right or wrong outside of what society says is right or wrong, so morality would not exist, invalidating this question.

The same applies to abortion.

You should probably specify a time to compare the present day with Did you mean to say "i.E."? Because phrased as it is, the question is similar to "Is a greater acceptance of homosexuality and/or premarital sex good?"

Money has always been a religion, debate. Its called free market capitalism.
