So if I want to rape your sister and your mother in front of you and then slit all of your throats you can't really say I am wrong for that, right? Actually, I might prefer to feed you all feet first into a wood chipper. Saddam's boys seemed to enjoy that. Who dares to say that their personal choices were any more or less "good" than that old hag Mother Teresas? Certainly not you or me! BTW, welcome to Free Republic!

"So if I want to rape your sister and your mother in front of you and then slit all of your throats you can't really say I am wrong for that, right? Actually, I might prefer to feed you all feet first into a wood chipper."

It appears you have failed to read my entire post or perhaps did a line item veto of your own. I talked about the individual's pursuit of happiness and I specifically decried nonconsensual violence as a detriment to that. I am quite sure that my sister and mother would not consent to being raped and having their throat slit. I have no problem with people being a danger to themselves as their self is their own personal responsiblility, but to other people is an infringement of individual rights.

Either way the murderer and Mother Teresa do have things in common: their motive is self-gratification. The killer gets pleasure from carnage and Mother Teresa gets pleasure from her charity work in India. We are all here on this Earth to experience self-gratification...no exceptions.

"Are you stating that there is no objective truth? Or that there is an objective truth that we don't fully know, so therefore people should not impose their beliefs on others?"

Somewhere in between...there is an objective truth, but we will never really fully know what it is, so let us not impose our beliefs upon each other.

Anyway...back to the subject matter..you have failed to answer why it is such a crisis that Europe's population is decreasing and that there are more Muslims in the nation...unlike the "Christian" right here...they haven't openly pushed for theocracy in those nations. Also their presence proves my point...religion can still thrive within a secular government.
