Civil law takes precedence over all gods

Letter in today’s Irish Independent.

Our Enlightened laws

According to David Quinn, unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law of (his) god (Irish Independent, August 30).

This logic means that laws on divorce, contraception, homosexuality and the recently introduced law on abortion are all unjust laws.

Fortunately, we live in an age where enlightened civil law enjoys precedence over all gods.

  1. Quinn goes on a bit about the supremacy of the moral law which is derived from God. Is this the same moral law which supported burning of witches and upheld human slavery ?
