Moals do change.
Would a person who supervised the mutilation of over 800 homan bodies be a hero and elected presidant today?
Was he morally right in his time?

Morals

Could the editor of a news paper that, more then once called for the complete extermination of a race of humans, become a famous childrens book author?

Frank L Brum author wizxard of oz

The proud spirit of the original
owners of these vast prairies
inherited through centuries of fierce
and bloody wars for their
possession, lingered last in the
bosom of Sitting Bull. With his fall
the nobility of the Redskin is
extinguished, and what few are left
are a pack of whining curs who lick
the hand that smites them. The
Whites, by law of conquest, by
justice of civilization, are masters of
the American continent, and the
best safety of the frontier
settlements will be secured by the
total annihilation of the few
remaining Indians. Why not
annihilation? Their glory has fled,
their spirit broken, their manhood
effaced; better that they die than
live the miserable wretches that
they are.

On January 3, 1891 (after the Wounded Knee massacre) "The Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer" published another editorial:

"The peculiar policy of the government in employing so weak and vacillating a person as General Miles to look after the
uneasy Indians, has resulted in a terrible loss of blood to our soldiers, and a battle which, at best, is a disgrace to the war
department. There has been plenty of time for prompt and decisive measures, the employment of which would have
prevented this disaster.

"The PIONEER has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extirmination [sic] of the Indians. Having
wronged them for centuries we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these
untamed and untamable creatures from the face of the earth. In this lies safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are
under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those
have been in the past.

Well, I for one will be looking at withholding any property, or other tax money that is earmarked for the support of the Sullivan county school system. I do have what some might call "Old Fashioned" values, but I believe I will keep my "Old Fashioned" money going in moral directions.
I will post here what percentage of tax dollars supports the Liberal Sullivan School, and pays the payroll for the spineless lame duck administration. I encourage everyone who agrees with moral values to simply deduct that potion of your property tax dollars, and send along a letter claiming "religious objector" to using your money to encourage the Gay and Lesbian lifestyles in our hometown youth!
For somebody that is so morally superior, I'm sure you realize that tax evasion is illegal, right? We can't pick and choose what our tax dollars are spent on. If that's the case I don't want any of my tax dollars spent on war and farm subsidies.

I'm simply bring up an issue of morals and how they change over time. would either of these 2 men be considered heroes in today's time, 1 supervising the mutlation of 800 buddies, the other calling for extermination of a race of people?
I think it would be morally unexcptable if someone did these things today.
So, when we speak of gays, lesbians,and morality today, where do these morals originate from and should they still hold true. If so, then why?

Well, it's people like this that is causing the problem. You know it is wrong, but you fund it anyway. God says the to THOSE who bid the evildoers Godspeed, partake of their evil doings. In other words if you knowingly fund bad things, you are guilty of doing those same bad things! By the way, have you ever heard of the legal term " Conscientious Objector" ? Maybe now is the time you Google it!
First, let me say that I don't think its wrong to be gay. What I think the real problem is, that people like YOU choose to judge others and decide how people should live their lives and it has nothing to do with you at all...and do it in the name of God. I love the Lord, but I also love my neighbor, as it says to do in the Bible. I know it may be very uncomfortable to some, and I get that....but who are you to determine what's ok? If you all were just honest and say..."I really don't agree and don't want to see it" , instead of playing GOD, more people might understand. Quit being so hateful!

Well dumbass, you are a very big part of the problem. You will let someone bully you into paying for something you don't believe in. There are more people who refuse to pay taxes into a system for moral reasons. You are just afraid! Stand up for Gods sake! Have a spine for once! it's people like you who just let things get worse... Sad, sad, sad!
You know, I don't understand why you are so mad and insist on name calling. I'm sure there are things you do (like being plain mean) that I don't like, but I refuse to stoop to your level. Life isn't always fair, it doesn't always go our way, and it is unpredictable...but to put a hold on your life to be so judgemental is crazy . Go hang out with your kids, or do something productive.

I don't know what world you live in but it is detached from reality. Do you really believe that nonsense you just wrote? Try telling the IRS that you refuse to pay takes on the grounds of your beliefs and see how well that goes over.

Cancel the prom as an offical school function. Then let the money pay for a prom for those who want an all straight prom and let the money pay for an alternative lifestyle prom. Releasing tax payers and school from this issue should be the main focus. Ban all types of events that do not directly promote education and team building (music, sports, etc.).

Could have phrased 'the money' better! Money raised to have those events by walk a thons, cookie sale, donations by community groups.

Morals don't change. People's view of morals change. True morals are based on Gods word and will never change. God in the Old Testament and Jesus in the new condemned homosexuality. What people view as right or wrong is irrelevant. It is a sin and will be punished as so. Morals change because people keep drifting away from God. Bottom line is that it doesn't matter the least bit what we think. It doesn't change the facts. No practicing homosexual will ever enter into heaven. That's Gods law, not mine. So talk to Him about it. I am a happily married man but I still am attracted to other women. However I choose to ignore that desire because to act upon it would be immoral. It is normal to have selfish and immoral desires. However God commands us to be faithful to our spouse. That is how He made us. A desire for premarital sex is normal. But to act upon it is sin. Period. We all are human and have these desires that are sinful. This is mormal. To act upon them is sin. God does not, has not, and will not change. Just because society has decided to accept homosexuality as normal doesn't make it so. It is still wrong and always will be.

Thank you for sharing your view on morals forumed by the century, culture, religous belief, and individual life experiances.

Yawn. The Gay students are going to the prom, that was never in question. So most of your post is just the same boring drivel I have been reading on here.
Take time and read the post's on here from the Gay supporters, they immediately lashed out at Christians and anyone else who do not believe the way they do, I was under the impression that tolerance was to be taught?
Where is the tolerance for the kids who believe differently from the Gay supporters?? It's not there. And since it's the word of the century, that makes you a Bigot.
So it's okay for Christians not to tolerate gays but if gays are unhappy about the way they are discriminated against that makes us the bigots? Yeah, makes a whole lot of sense. lol.

Jesus never said anything about homosexuality. If you are going to go by the Old Testament then you must follow it all including not eating shellfish which is also listed as an abomination.

What does all this have to do with allowing ALL students to a school prom? I don't see the straight students wanting an alternative straight only prom any different than a bunch of white students that want a whites only prom. Prejudice is prejudice and people have different beliefs. Not everyone is the same religion and religion is a proven lifestyle choice which is protected more than the ways people are born (race and sexual orientation). Religious views cannot be proven as fact based, it's all about faith.
