The government prohibits that by law. Therefore I must abide by it.
What are your views on abortion, partial birth abortion, government taxation, taxes for public schools which teach what you wouldn't want taught, removal of God from anything resembling a public place and euthanasia?
LOL. Depends if he drives in NY.
My memory and the memory of about 15-20 other FReepers. Plus it has been documented for all to see.
Does your belief system allow you to lie and misrepresent facts so shamelessly or are you just making it up as you go along?
Here's the original:
You stated:"...What is right or wrong for one country is not necessarily right or wrong for another country. Just ask the people living in other countries...."
What are your views on burkhas, honor killings, infidel killings, suttee, footbinding?
Note that my questions refer to your statements about people living in other countries. Your response does not.
Since you do not think slavery is wrong, in which countries or under what circumstances do you think it is appropriate?
So you don't consider slavery to be wrong, but if it were legalized it would be wrong because it would be against the Constitution. I feel like the AFLAC duck in the Yogi Berra commercial!
So, um, was slavery wrong before the 13th Amendment? What is right or wrong for one country is not necessarily right or wrong for another country. Just ask the people living in other countries.
Wow. Moral relativism too. How did you arrive at this? No wait, let me guess: The Old Testament has God constantly giving the Israelites special laws when he's not busy suspending other laws just for them, so moral relativism is the only Godly philosophy of ethics.
Am I close?
Analyze my previous posts. My all-sufficient answers are in there. Your questions are typical of liberal spin. If you don't like an answer you demand more answers to questions in order to finally find something that fits your profile as out of line. Forget it. You are not getting it from me.
Even though the only places slavery is still practiced are Muslim lands
Only in your dreams. Only in your dreams. Don't feel bad. Sometimes you even sound like the AFLAC duck.
OK, so why do you believe that
What is right or wrong for one country is not necessarily right or wrong for another country. Just ask the people living in other countries.
It is as if you have never heard the terms, "tradition", "culture" or "practice". Leave the Dark Ages, come out into the light. It is a real eyeopener.
OK, so different cultures have different traditions, and so they consider different practices as morally acceptable or unacceptable. Fine.
But we're all human beings, regardless of the culture we live in. You don't consider slavery to be wrong. Is it only not-wrong in the US, or are there other cultures in which slavery is also not wrong in your view?
I believe that I have sufficiently explained myself. You will not be satisfied until you can say, "ah ha" you said.." So forget it. You are not luring me into your liberal trap. By the way, answer my question. Is slavery a moral issue? If you say it is where do you derive what is moral and what isn't?
"my all-sufficient answers"
Thank you for clarifying your view of yourself. Now I understand why you might think slavery is not wrong.
I'm more of a Luke 6:31 person myself.
The creationists really are the pale riders of postmoderndeconstructionism.
You are correct that you have "sufficiently explained" yourself, but not to your credit.
Somehow the phrase "total management principles" seems out of place in their description of outlawing slavery.
Matthew 25:40 placemark
There's no "ah-ha" moment in the offing. You've already "sufficiently explained" yourself. See, for example, post 611. I'm just eager to understand why a supposed conservative would hold such a reprehensible view.
So forget it. You are not luring me into your liberal trap.
So opposition to slavery is now liberalism??? LOL!
By the way, answer my question. Is slavery a moral issue? If you say it is where do you derive what is moral and what isn't?
Of course slavery is a moral issue. Slavery is immoral because a human being cannot be owned. Humans have individual rights because it's a necessity for survival as humans. All humans have such rights, because if you apply rights to only some people and not others, then it's no longer a principle but instead just an ad-hoc, self-serving rationalization.
Let me ask you something: How would you feel if someone kidnapped you & sold you into slavery? Would you chalk it up to a stroke of bad luck, like getting hit by a hurricane, or would you recognize it as a crime - a violation of your inherent rights as a human being?
