Alcohol is a leading cause of death and serious injuries in traffic accidents. Islam forbids all intoxicants including beer and wine. It is unbecoming of a religious person to drink. Don't drink!
Sexual promiscuity and homosexuality are crimes in the sight of God.
Lottery and all other forms of gambling, including video poker are forbidden by God. Powerball is Fireball!
If the family is the basis of the society, and the basis of the family is the division of labour between husband and wife, and the upbringing of children is the most important function of the family, then such a society is indeed civilised.
