Yeah and Conservatives believe that the laws that they pass will help others not harm them. Please tell me why it is wrong to pass a law that
allows prayer in school? Christianity is the largest religion in the world. The Christians shouldn't have to bow down to the minorities that might get
If you can explain to me how prayer will increase my son's SAT scores or make him smarter I'd like to hear it.
The last time I checked, school was not a place to indoctrinate children into religion. Just because the majority may be Christian, doesn't give you,
or them the right to impose their religion on others.
It's illegal too so there's that.
You don't have to bow down, you can pray all you want, in the comfort your own home, your church and out in the street if you'd like, it's a free
country. But religion and school do not go together.
Same with the whole gay marriage thing, laws are being passed right now and the gays claim that it infringes on their rights as people. But, on
the other side there is evidence to suggest that gay marriage is not a healthy moral aspect for society to adopt. For thousands of years the family
model has been one man and one woman, conservatives argue that it will be a disaster to the family unit.
What evidence? Please provide it. Furthermore, you again, attempt to use OPINION as a means to pass laws that limit people's freedom. That's not a
Actually for thousands of years men simply chose whoever they wanted to have babies with and forced the women to do so, or the women's parents did it
for her. Are you suggesting that we return to that model because it was popular for thousands of years?
On the opposite end of the abortion debate are the social liberals who claim that you can get rid of the baby anytime you want. Conservatives
would rather keep the baby and raise it on their own. The liberals won the case that their is a right to abortion in roe v wade. There are advocate
groups wanting that law to end, but its not going to happen anytime soon.
Again, you don't have the right to tell people what they can and cannot do. I don't personally agree with abortion, I think it's barbaric and below
the 21st century human. However I don't believe in making it illegal and telling others that they can't have one because I disagree.
Health Care is another moral dilemma. You have the liberals claiming that health care is a right, and you have conservatives saying that it is
not it is a privilege. Dr. Paul once said that society should not take care of someone who was dying and did not have health insurance because it was
his choice it should be his punishment. The doctor would have to make a moral choice right there. And it happens all the time.
That's an economic decision, not a moral one. ANY laws passed on "morality" that aren't in relation to the 3 things listed here:
Causing somebody significant harm.
Breaking contracts that you signed and agreed to.
Are nonsense and should NEVER be passed because they are subjective laws.
make it sound very black and white, but the four issues I have outlined above have a lot of moral implications. in the US it is still up to
the individual to decide what to do in these circumstances.
You say it's up to the individual, yet you'd like to limit the choices that individual can make by making the decision for them? What kind of double
think circular logic is that?
There are no moral issues when it comes to governance. The government has NO right to make decisions for you, unless they are regarding the 3 things
above. Abortion is a unique issue in that field, I won't discuss it further.
