The prerequisite for this Constitution to function as intended, according to John Adams, was that "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." [Adams, Charles Francis, ed. "The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States: Volume IX." Boston: Little, Brown, 1854, p. 229.] Their intention was for this country to be a free country which would allow its citizens to worship that same Almighty

Is the Constitution a moral or immoral or amoral document?

The US Constitution is an amoral document, meaning that it is neither moral or immoral. The US Constitution is simply a governmental charter which gives people the right to constitute their own government. Whether this government does moral actions or immoral actions is entirely contingent on the people who behave by right of that charter. Morality and ethics are determined by an entirely distinct moral process (be it religious exegesis or secular moral systems) than anything in the US Constitution.

No. Immoral is not illegal. While immoral acts can frustrate other people, there aren't actually any rules saying you can't be immoral. However, some acts on the road are ALSO illegal as well as immoral. But if it just immoral, and not illegal, then your licence will not be revoked, you will not be fined or anything (unless it was dangerous).

According to some people, yes. But some people think all sex outside marriage is immoral. It really depends who is likely to get hurt - maybe a neglected wife, who feels left out. If you can do it without leaving victims, I can't see why it's immoral.
