Itís quite interesting Reverend Alan that you believe religious people should not inflict their morals on others, or codify religious morals into law, yet you seem to have no problem imposing your intrinsically flawed ethical relativist philosophy onto a democratic society, with a significant percentage of voters who reject the notion that standards of right and wrong are products of time and culture.<quoted text>
What you do NOT have the right to do is what you and your fellow pew warmers do and that is pass laws making your personal opinions the law of the land which establishes Christianity as the religion of the USA.
That is wrong no matter how you dance around it claiming you have the right to force your beliefs down our throats. And it is your Christian beliefs that need to be examined and discussed so they can be seen for the nonsense that they are.
The problem with moral relativism is that no action or behavior, no matter how foul or depraved, is absolutely wrong. Thatís why the Nazis embraced socialism, which is based on an ethical relativism and a metaphysical materialism that no decent human could ever accept.
Should the philosophy of moral relativism prevail in our country, our children and grandchildren will come to witness immorality at an unimaginable scale. They will witness unchaste men and women walking naked in public, people flaunting their unclothed bodies, men kissing multiple wives, women kissing multiple husbands, and celebrating their unbridled freedom and identity in public processions where display of physical affection and nudity engender exalting pride.
This is already taking place in America, Rev. Alan.
Of course none of those things probably bothers you because with moral relativism, anything goes!
