speak for yourself please, i whole-heartedly disagree.
yes, there are segments of the population who fit that description but by no means is it a majority.
since when is 'tolerance' equal to anything goes
again, i disagree as religion has not been able to make up their own minds regarding right vs wrong for all the years they've been in business.
see any 2 conflicting dogmas for comparison and glaring examples.
the part that gets me is what most seem to have forgotten ... America was formed specifically to separate ourselves from the Catholics, yet, in
America today, one could easily surmise that they rule the roost.
and no offense to any religious types but thanks to the religious dogma of the centuries, we still have unspoken atrocities, daily. for a 'program'
of morality, they've failed miserably
i can't think of any public school program that emphasized morality, ever.
so, are you suggesting we legislate 'morality' ??
seriously, what's your point here
back in my day, many lessons in morality came from the playground and peers, not parents, not church, certainly not school and often, not even within
our own family structure.
sure, some relied on the various Churches but we can certainly see how well that's worked out, eh ?
i am trying to understand how 'morals' even entered this discussion.
are you suggesting that supporting self-defense isn't a "moral" standing ??
