English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. immoral

    Every criminal act is illegal or unlawful, but illegal or unlawful acts may not be criminal. Offenses against public law are criminal; offenses against private rights are merely illegal or unlawful. As a general rule, all acts punishable by fine or imprisonment or both, are criminal in view of the law. It is illegal for a man to trespass on another's land, but it is not criminal; the trespasser is liable to a civil suit for damages, but not to indictment, fine, or imprisonment. A felonious act is a criminal act of an aggravated kind, which is punishable by imprisonment in the penitentiary or by death. A flagitious crime is one that brings public odium. Vicious refers to the indulgence of evil appetites, habits, or passions; vicious acts are not necessarily criminal, or even illegal; we speak of a vicious horse. That which is iniquitous, i. e., contrary to equity, may sometimes be done under the forms of law. Ingratitude is sinful, hypocrisy is wicked, but neither is punishable by human law; hence, neither is criminal or illegal. Compare SIN.

How to use immoral in a sentence?

  1. Ricky Gervais:

    I'm not going to start picking on things you've done, some of it immoral. A lot of it illegal. If we've learned one thing, it's that famous people are above the law. As it should be.

  2. Anuj Somany:

    The problem in telling honestly to the people as ‘what is not correct’ and ‘who is not morally right’, is not only that it doesn’t correct the wrong person but also let left-out few right ones to be immoral.

  3. Peter S. Jennison:

    The poor and the affluent are not communicating because they do not have the same words. When we talk of the millions who are culturally deprived, we refer not to those who do not have access to good libraries and bookstores, or to museums and centers for the performing arts, but those deprived of the words with which everything else is built, the words that opens doors. Children without words are licked before they start. The legion of the young wordless in urban and rural slums, eight to ten years old, do not know the meaning of hundreds of words which most middle-class people assume to be familiar to much younger children. Most of them have never seen their parents read a book or a magazine, or heard words used in other than rudimentary ways related to physical needs and functions. Thus is cultural fallout caused, the vicious circle of ignorance and poverty reinforced and perpetuated. Children deprived of words become school dropouts; dropouts deprived of hope behave delinquently. Amateur censors blame delinquency on reading immoral books and magazines, when in fact, the inability to read anything is the basic trouble.

  4. Joshua Grubbs:

    Middle-aged and younger adults have complained about how disrespectful younger generations were, how risque they were, how immoral they were, how lazy they were, or how unwise they were – this is sort of the natural order of things, however, the millennial generation is the first real generation to face that criticism in the digital age, where hot takes and instant opinions are ubiquitous.

  5. John McCain:

    General, that's immoral. It's not only unworkable, it's immoral, i do not know how you recruit young people to fight and ... we don't have a policy yet whether we're going to protect them or not.
