We think Murdering someone is wrong. There fore we make it a law that murder is a crime.
Who says it's wrong? If you tell me it's wrong, aren't you imposing your morality on me?

Would the Taliban say it's wrong to stone a woman who was wearing perfume? And if I say that stoning her is wrong, am I not imposing my cultural morality on them?

Where do you draw the line? Are there moral absolutes? If so, where do they come from? Or is everything relative and therefore as inconstant and changeable as the weather?

I have two questions for Drew.  First, are you suggesting that there is no "objective" good, right, evil, wrong that just exists in a vaccuum and that it really *is* all a matter of perspective?   Second, if this is what you're saying, does this extend to the contents of the Bible?

Not at all! What have I said that gave you that idea?

However, I am once again advocating that people actually live by the philosophies they claim to believe. (Though it's probably more fitting for another thread, seein' as how this one's nicely derailed.)

^ Thanks.  Just out of curiosity, in which threads have I infuriated you?

I can't remember specifically.  On and off for the last year. :)
