They made me hate the 80's less. But in all honesty, they did expand my musical range quite a bit. They made me more willing to branch out.

Teale Originally Answered: Do Joseph Smiths criminal actions take away from his credibility as a prophet?
Early Mormonism Laying the Foundation Mormonism stands or falls on the word of just one man—its prophet— Joseph Smith Jr. If Joseph Smith lied, if there was no "revelation", if he is proven a false prophet, then Mormonism is "another gospel"—a tragic lie. The following information is taken from books considered rare or difficult to find. Dr. William Wyl's Mormon Portraits (1886) in particular, infuriated the Mormon Church. Dr. Wyl was a well-known and highly respected German physician, who visited Salt Lake City with no intent to attack the Mormons and came away appalled at all he had seen and heard. He wrote, "I do not wish to insult anybody in this book, or to hurt anybody's feelings. I desire to do my simple duty as a writer. That is all; to do it as a critic and observer, having the courage of my opinions, and being happily free from ‘all entangling alliances.'" "But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!" Galatians 1:8 "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit." Matthew 7:15-17 Joseph Smith Jr. and Family EYEWITNESS STATEMENTS Peter Ingersoll: "Smith told me the whole affair was a hoax; that he had no such book and did not believe there was such a book in existence; ‘But,' said he, ‘as I have got the damned fools fixed, I shall carry out the fun.'"[1] Thurlow Weed In 1825, when I was publishing the "Rochester Telegraph," a man introduced himself to me as Joseph Smith, of Palmyra, New York, whose object, he said, was to get a book published. He then stated he had been guided by a vision to a spot he described, where, in a cavern, he found what he called a golden bible. It consisted of a tablet which he placed in his hat, and from which he proceeded to read the first chapter of the Book of Mormon. I listened until I became weary of what seemed to me an incomprehensible jargon. I then told him I was only publishing a newspaper, and that he would have to go to a book publisher, suggesting a friend who was in that business. A few days afterward Smith called again, bringing a substantial farmer with him named Harris. Smith renewed his request that I should print his book, adding that it was a divine revelation, and would be accepted, and that he would be accepted by the world as a prophet. Supposing that I had doubts as to his being able to pay for the publishing, Mr. Harris, who was a convert, offered to be his security for payment. Meantime, I had discovered that Smith was a shrewd, scheming fellow who passed his time at taverns and stores in Palmyra, without business, and without visible means of support. He was about five feet eight inches in height, had regular features, and would impress one favorably in conversation. His book was afterward published in Palmyra.[2] Dr. John C. Bennett: "Shortly after I located in Nauvoo, Joe proposed to me to go to New York and get some plates engraved and bring them to him, so that he could exhibit them as the genuine plates of the Book of Mormon, which he pretended had been taken from him, and "hid up" by an angel, and which he would profess to have recovered. He calculated to make considerable money by this trick, as there would of course be a great anxiety to see the plates, which he intended to exhibit at twenty-five cents a sight. I mentioned this proposition to Mrs. Sarah M. Pratt, on the day the Prophet made it, and requested her to keep it in memory, as it might be of much importance." When asked by me in the spring of 1885 about this statement of John C. Bennett, Mrs. Pratt confirmed it fully and stated also that Bennett had reported to her this conversation with Joseph on the very day when it happened.[3] Mrs. Abigail Harris: "In the early part of the winter in 1828 I made a visit to Martin Harris, and was joined in company by Joseph Smith, Sen., and his wife. The Gold Bible business, so-called, was the topic of conversation, to which I paid particular attention, that I might learn the truth of the whole matter. They told me that the report that Joseph Smith, Jun., had found the Golden Plates was true, and that he was in Harmony, Pa., translating them. The old lady said, also, that after the Book was translated, the plates were to be publicly exhibited—admittance, twenty-five cents."[4] Mormanism is a cult (false prophet).

Teale Originally Answered: Do Joseph Smiths criminal actions take away from his credibility as a prophet?
OK.. first of all, at the time, this would have been a misdemeanor. They didn't even have trials for misdemeanor's back then. It was a fine and that was it. Even if he would have been found guilty, there wouldn't have been any court proceedings to read. Second, this was a common thing for people of that time period to do. Lots of people were looking for treasure. It wasn't something new. Third, the guy who brought this to the public's attention stole the papers from the courthouse where they were kept. They didn't even know they were gone until the papers printed the story. They said that they had been tampered with and were found to be false. In other words, your proof isn't proof, but fraud by someone else. I think this guys character should be in question, not Josephs.

They influenced me into looking into more indie music, and they also gave me a better appreciation for pop music in general.

My Bloody Valentine basically said my answer. I've really come to appreciate indie pop more and they were the band that got me into britpop initially

Molly Originally Answered: Why should law NOT be influenced by morals?
I can think of one good reason right off the top of my head and that would be simply because everyone has different morals.. What is right to one is not right to another. Here I just found this page on that topic, I hope this helps..
