Comment: Truly, We Have Sunken..

(See in situ)

Truly, We Have Sunken.. a level of moral depravity inherent in the practice of:
"Moral Relativism"...or Relative Morality.

Morality is not a tenet handed down by religious groups, but rather a time-tested guide to life that was arrived at by society's experiences.

Society, most cultures found, could not exist if certain acts were viewed as acceptable norms.
e.g. Stealing, lying, adultery,KILLING.

These "guides to living" became known as "MORAL ABSOLUTES", and inasmuch as "truth" is an "absolute", they were un-alterable.

The 10 Commandments are, for most of us, the Moral Absolutes accepted and practiced in Western Civilization,
When man decrees himself to be "God-Like" or infallible he, like these politicians, "bends the rules" and "shapes" the laws to reflect a morality that is "right" for the "current circumstances".

There is only right and in-between, absolutes are the defining factor.
But a society built upon the concept of the "Good of the State" being of "primary importance" will rapidly decay, and wither away eventually.
The Constitution is an is the 2nd Amendment.
To consider it any other way is Moral Relativism and faulty reasoning.

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........
...Everything CHANGED !!
