Frederick Bastiat, in his famous work “The Law”, wrote that “no society can exist unless the laws are respected to a certain degree.” The way to make laws respected, Bastiat said, “is to make them respectable.” But “when law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law.”
