Morality and Laws (it depends)
Depends on whom is writting the Laws

1646. Cromwell debated about what to do with the King, but he was finally instrumental in signing the paper which declared Charles a traitor and led to his execution outside the Banqueting Hall at Whitehall on January 30th, 1649. England now had no monarchy.

Oliver Cromwell was deemed a moderate because he massacred only Catholics and Anglicans

BOGDAN CHMIELNICKI (c. 1593-1657)
Every manor-house was reduced to ashes. Every Uniat and Catholic priest was hung up before his own altar, along with a Jew and a hog.

1700 - In June, Massachusetts passes a law ordering all Roman Catholic priests to leave the colony within three months, upon penalty of life imprisonment or execution. New York then passes a similar law.

More than 1.7 million people were arrested in 1937-38 by the Soviet security services alone, and at least 818,000 of them were shot, Roginsky said.

But there is "decidedly no political will" on the government's part to preserve a "national memory" of those abuses, he said, and he contrasted the atmosphere in Russia with the way Germany has acknowledged the Holocaust.

RE: Morality and Laws (it depends)
Oliver Cromwell has never been regarded as a moderate by anyone with a decent understanding of history. The ineffectiveness of his regime was made clear by how quickly it was overturned after him.

As for the animosity in the colonies against Catholics, that probably had something to do with the persecution of Protestants in Europe. It led to a lot of bad feelings and excess.

Religion against religion gets very ugly, very quickly, because neither side uses reason.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.

RE: Morality and Laws (it depends)
morality does not depend on who writes the laws as such

as the laws are the will of the divine God Zolt ~(deism), and there for define morality.

they are legal and moral at the time, though new revelations keep appearing as if by magic.

remember the inquisition and Holy Roman Inquisition?
now it no longer matters the Pope wrote laws to you.

procedure shall prevail !
