Re: A simplified definition of the morality issu

The biggest challenge here, though, may well be to break the misperception that morality is fundamentally religious and thus not a basis for legislation. This misperception has also led to more than a few catastrophic judicial misfires in the last [more]

I believe the moderate boards were tried here a few times before. They tend to die quickly but only after devolving into shouting matches where no one can recognize how extreme they are. Your best bet is to stick with libertarians. We are the most [more]

Elections

Elections are always issue driven. Whether you are a democrat or a republican, depending on the issues at hand, you may disagree with your party on a particularly hot topic. This could only occur if you feel more strongly about the issue than you [more]

Re: Al-Sisi discovers his inner Pope Framcis

If you have, on the other hand, something basic like the 10 commandments or Jesus' summation of the same, you have a cross-cultural and cross-time measuring stick for any realization of morality. There's no test to fail, because it is a [more]

Re: Al-Sisi discovers his inner Pope Framcis

OK, I think you're going for a democratically defined, consensus driven morality. That fails the Jim Crow test (and internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII and various other fascist actions), when there was broad consensus that race-based [more]

A simplified definition of the morality issue

Christians in America often say that morality should be Bible based.

Others disagree.

For the sake of simplicity, let's agree that morality is to be based on the Christian Bible and the moral implications that Christianity [more]
