Church and State!

The pledge of allegiance question reminded me of this point. If there should be sepperation between church and state, to what do we owe the morals that should (and often do) guide our laws? To clairfy, why do people say it is wrong to do this or that, if they have no higher truth to base it on? If I say it's ok to do heroin (I don't but for arguments sake) what basis does anyone have to tell me it's wrong. Assume I only stay at home and do it. If I cut in front of you in line and you believe in no higher truth, why is it wrong if I don't believe it is? What will you appeal to? Common decency? General opinion?
