Can moral values be democratically determined?

Democracies are not the dictatorships of majorities. Democracy is far more than doing what the majority wants. In democracies, all residents have certain basic rights that cannot be violated regardless of what the majority thinks. (See the declaration of human rights for further details.)

For example, there may be sexual acts that two consenting adults do that the majority finds immoral. Should democracies be able to ban those acts

What if, at some point, the majority finds Christianity or atheism immoral

In a healthy democracy, the executive and legislative branches are democratic, however, to protect the minority judicial branch is independent.
