|I think my point is along the lines of "we have so much to beat them up with, why bother doing something like this which if it doesn't cross the line, is approaching it?".|
My thoughts exactly.
Example: In answer to MarkF:
|MF,25.1: It is my firm belief that in the end morality is . . . subjective. We have firmly held opinions on what is right and what is wrong and can bring reasons to bear and make rational arguments – but underlying it will be commonly held but subjective attitudes.|
This is unfortunately, little more than a nicely phrased way of saying that evolutionary materialism is amoral and radically subjectivist. On such amoral worldview premises, morality can ONLY be subjective (anything dealing with us as subjects is ALSO subject-ive . . . ), without any real objective warrant.
and in a later comment expanding on this:
|Then, contrast what I was reading overnight from Les Kinsolving, on a recent conference in Baltimore — B4U-ACT (as in, compare ACT-UP) — the next step in the amoralistic agenda (I guess it has been cropping up enough in the porn to begin to benumb consciences through addiction, so it can now begin to be publicly pushed): |
Do you see where our civilisation is headed if it is left in the hands of such?
|[lenghty quote from WND snipped; the highlighted part:]|
If they had it their way, sex between adults and minors would no longer be taboo, and pedophilia would no longer be listed as a mental illness by the American Psychiatric Association.”
It is time to wake up, understand the driving force behind the rising amorality and agendas to literally de-moralise our civilisation through reducing morality to a matter of views and feelings that can then be manipulated by clever advocates [demonising and targetting those who dare object -- I notice your silence in the face of tactics that amount to: we know who you are, where you are, who you care fr, and here's the targetting photo . . . ], publicly expose the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the underlying evolutionary materialism, and also take heed to the urgency of reformation.

But apparently, it's MarkF who's behaving badly:
