Is animalistic act of man moral?
Animalism is the doctrine that humans are merely animals with no spiritual nature; or the enjoyment of vigorous health and physical drives. It is totally unrelated to the ancient religious practices of animism. It need not be associated with bestiality, which is of course a totally immoral act. Animalism by and of itself need not be moral or immoral.

In a nutshell, we have to ask: WHO IS ASKING? Easy to answer from the safety of a comfortable home office. Not so easy if you're the victim of torture or terrorism and living …in a society that can't guarantee your next meal. Humans are neither moral nor immoral except as judged by community standards. Who will question the cannibal (or the pope, for that matter) on his own turf? You will be humbled quickly, if not also judged severely by local standards. The real question then: Who is it that's asking? Perhaps a better question: "Would you rather be RIGHT... or HAPPY?" In the long run, if we DO ask "Who are we... and what are we doing here?" from a good-versus-evil perspective, we may see how we have only harmed ourselves when we come from a perspective of being INDIVIDUALS whose only goal is to survive at the expense of others around us (instead of joining together for the good of the whole).
Who said that the purpose of the state is to control the evil nature of man and compel him to act morally?
By "moral agent" we understand a creature able to act morally. To act morally supposes a creature has the ability to know that its actions have moral consequences. Among… animals, only man has the faculty of intellect, which allows man to understand that his actions have good or evil consequences. Further, man can know that he is the source of the action that leads to these consequences and, as such, is responsible for them. In order to be able to make a moral act, man also has the faculty of will, that is, a man can choose how to act even when understanding whether the act is good or evil. Because of the faculties of intellect and will man can understand cause and effect, good and evil, consequences and personal responsibility and thus every act a human being does when the faculties are not inhibited, is a human act by a moral agent.
The role of the morality to the personhood of man is to take care of the creation of God.
When a man entertains adultery in his desires and thoughts and intents to consummate his acts but fails did he incur any moral guilt and is he morally responsible?
Yes. Intending to do something bad is the same as doing the bad thing. If you attempt a crime and are caught in the act (and stopped from doing the crime) you are still …guilty and will go to jail. There is no difference here, just because he was stopped from committing adultery doesn't mean he is not guilty of it, he made the attempt. ----- Now.. this entirely different from THINKING about doing something bad and CHOOSING not to do it. If he changed his own mind or simply never INTENDED to commit the act, than there is nothing wrong with that. You can engage in intellectual curiosity on any number of subjects and so long as you never intend to follow through AND never attempt it, there is nothing wrong with only thinking about it. But if its someone or something else stopping you, than you are 100% guilty just for making the attempt whether or not it was successful. The guilt is always based on intention, and nothing proves intention more than the attempt itself. Failure or success of the attempt is irrelevant.
In philosophy and theology we speak of "human acts". Since human beings have an intellect and will, the main faculties of the soul, all acts are are human acts. This is becaus…e every act we do is done with intention, either implicit or explicit and thus is a human act. Acts that we do while the will is suspended or forced or damaged, such as cases were we might be sleeping, tortured and under extreme duress or inebriated or psychologically affected, are not human acts. Any act that is done in line with the natural law, observing the laws of God and with a good intention would be a moral act, as in morally correct. Any action that is done in defiance of the natural law, or laws of God, or is poisoned with a bad intention, is an immoral act, and is morally wrong. Often, it depends on circumstances and intention as to whether an act is moral. For instance, if you kill someone, this is obviously a morally evil act, however, if it is done in self defense, this act is morally correct. Moral theology is the study that is solely considered with human acts and the circumstances and intentions that affect them. Catholic priests must study moral theology during their seminary studies, specifically as part of their training to correct administer and advise souls in the sacrament of confession. Therefore, to specifically address the question, any act for it to be morally right must be a human act, so indeed, any right act is a moral act by definition.
