It just depends on how much one believes that there is an Almighty Creator and that He has communicated to us through Scriptures. If you believe the Torah is His writing, then it makes sense to have laws which conform to His Words as much as possible, for other courses will lead to disaster. That is basically what Soddom & Gomorrah & the book of Revelation, etc. etc. are warnings about.
I believe that obedience to Him and His Word brings blessings and that disobedience to Him brings curses, just as it is written, and that laws should be made accordingly. I realize this is becoming more and more of an unpopular opinion however.
As for me, on judgement day I want to be standing with His Word, not opposed to it. Mho.

Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you. With us are 4 men who have taken a vow upon themselves. Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses [for a temple offering],...Thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.
