A conjugal act respectful of what Pope John Paul II calls the "nuptial meaning" of the body and of the willing submissiveness of sexed humanity to the gift of fertility11 is one that is "open" to the transmission of life.
The contraceptive act is not simply nonprocreative (i.e., one that does not in fact result in pregnancy) but antiprocreative, i.e., an attack on the goodness of the procreativity of marriage and of human sexuality.
They abstain from the act not because they consider it wrong or repugnant--far from it; they abstain because they realize that to express their love for one another in the marital act here and now would be irresponsible (or would require them to contracept and be morally irresponsible in that way).

 South Africa - Legislative Implementation of Apartheid
The act required that people be classified primarily on the basis of their "community acceptability"; later amendments placed greater stress on "appearance" in order to deal with the practice of light-colored fls "passing" as whites.
The Group Areas Act (No. 41) of 1950 extended the provisions of the Natives Land Act (No. 27) of 1913, and later laws divided South Africa into separate areas for whites and fls (including coloureds), and gave the government the power to forcibly remove people from areas not designated for their particular racial group.
The Criminal Law Amendment Act (No. 8) of 1953 stated that anyone accompanying a person found guilty of offenses committed while "protest[ing], or in support of any campaign for the repeal or modification of any law," would also be presumed guilty and would have the burden of proving his or her innocence.

 War Is Immoral -- Recommendations and Resources   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The target of Collier's "Immorality" charge is the lack of poetic justice and exemplary morality in the plays discussed.
Collier performs detailed readings to demonstrate that all the characters are wicked and immoral and denounces the playwrights for failing to punish them, indeed for even, in many cases, rewarding them.
Vanbrugh, by contrast, refused to take the attack on his plays seriously, and his response, ''A Short Vindication of'' The Relapse ''and'' The Provok'd Wife ''From Immorality and Prophaneness'', is brief and jocular, charging the clergyman Collier with being more sensitive to unflattering portrayals of the clergy than to real profanity.

Every act of immorality is very destructive to people as it causes a profoundly bad influence in their life that will not go away for a long time.
Since immorality brings people into such intimate union, people are certain to be degraded and deeply wounded by any act of immorality.

 Converted W. Va. Grievance Board Decision
However, beyond that we have three alleged acts of immorality, which, according to Rovello, and [OCBE] would urge here, cannot be corrected and are not subject to a plan of assistance and a reasonable opportunity to correct the deficiencies.
It claims that the acts are significant, not only because of their common theme of "sexual provocation and promiscuity," but also because Grievant never denied committing any of them.
OCBE failed to meet its burden of proof that five cited incidents of Grievant's conduct were considered by it to be immoral acts at the time each one occurred or to otherwise demonstrate that such conduct, while inappropriate and perhaps unprofessional, constituted immorality.

 Election Resources on the Internet: The Republic of South Africa Electoral System
The South Africa Act was the result of a political compromise between the two major white ethno-linguistic groups - the Afrikaners, descendants of 17th- and 18th-century Dutch, French and German settlers, who speak Afrikaans (a derivative of 17th-century Dutch) and comprise the majority of South Africa's white population; and the English speakers.
The proposed constitution, enacted by Parliament as the Republic of South Africa Constitution Act of 1983, was submitted to a referendum of the white electorate, held on November 2, 1983.
In June 1991, the Land Acts of 1913 and 1936, the Group Areas Act of 1950 and the Population Registration Act of 1950 were repealed by Parliament.

The system of apartheid was further elaborated by a series of laws in the 1950s: The Group Areas Act of 1950 assigned races to different residential and business sections in urban areas, and the Land Acts of 1954 and 1955 restricted nonwhite residence to specific areas.
The Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act of 1949 barred interracial marriage, and the Immorality Act of 1950 prohibited sexual relations between different races.
The 1953 Reservation of Separate Amenities Act permitted the systematic segregation of train stations, buses, movie theaters, hotels, and virtually all other public facilities, and barred the courts from overturning such restrictions.

 Canada Family Action Coalition - CFAC
Not surprisingly, many of those non-judgmental, freedom-loving moral-relativists on the left are up-in-arms, demanding that Pace apologize and offer a full retraction or be fired (which would of course be disingenuous, entirely meaningless and have no effect on the veracity of his comments).
And just like that, the self-proclaimed arbiters of sexual morality have lowered the gavel, overturning the very Biblical authority to which they claim to subscribe, and ruling that homosexual acts, such as male-on-male anal penetration which exposes "gay" men to extremely high risk of deadly and infectious disease, are now and have always been… moral.
And that's precisely the true goal of such legislation… to attack the 1st Amendment's guarantees of free speech and liberty of conscience and to give abhorrent and disordered homosexual behaviors official government legitimacy, arming the PC police with a weapon of mass destruction in their crusade to silence all opposition to the homosexual lifestyle.

Spurious wars in oil-rich middle-eastern countries sold on false pretenses and costing hundreds of American lives (and many more non-American lives) is infinitely more immoral than the suggestion that maybe we ought not to be supporting Ten Commandments displays on the taxpayer dime.

 Homosexuality in Islam
However, the presence of any destructive influences which lead man towards this unnatural and bestial act of immorality does not constitute a valid excuse for indulgence in acts of deviation and inhumanity.
Just as fornication, rape and other criminal acts of immorality cannot be condoned because of biological, psychological, environmental, factors, etc, which may be the causes which occasion the crime, so too, can these factors not be cited in favour of diminished blame for the act of homosexuality.
Homosexuality is also a form of sexual inversion, hence the type of punishment was most befitting in that it also symbolized their unnatural acts of immorality.

 TheDEA.org: A Short History of Prohibition in America
As a result, the sale of opiates and cocaine was effectively restricted to medical professionals "in the course of [their] professional practice only." Others, unwilling or unable to pay the tax, would be charged with tax evasion and fined/imprisoned if they sold the restricted drugs.
Thus, the federal government was able to tell itself that it was acting within the constitution because it was 'just using its power to tax', which of course they did have a right to do.
To counter this phenomenon, they created the Analog Act, which allowed drugs that were only slightly different from outlawed drugs to be prosecuted as though they were the same as the illegal drug if the substance was sold for human consumption.

The source of the dilemma (which led to his act of choosing) is that the two groups overlap.

 Catching the Cathers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Though Deuteronomy says that both the woman and the man caught in adultery are to be stoned, historically and culturally it’s always been the woman who is hunted down and  caught, starting from Susanna in the O.T. to  the poor dear in the N.T., who is dragged before Jesus in the temple.
Then a politician caught “monkey-ing around” is swiftly labeled “immoral.”  But none of us in our  right cultural minds would ever think of  labeling a politician  “immoral” just because he votes to raise his pay at the very moment his neighbors are suffering the pangs of recession.
Or would ever think of labeling a politician “immoral”  just because he  cashes in on a totally "free" and comprehensive health insurance, while  he himself lacks political will to do something about millions of   hard-working American citizens who can’t afford the same great blessing for themselves.
