"Is slavery a moral issue? If you say it is where do you derive what is moral and what isn't?" My nature as a rational, human being.
Just as I thought. Your basis for morals is you. That means that every single person in the world can have their own idea of what is moral. Who is to say their idea is wrong? Are you saying that your idea is superior to theirs? If so, why?
"Just as I thought. Your basis for morals is you. "
Exactly not what I said. I said my morality is based on my nature as a human being and the nature of my existence, which is what it is no matter what I may wish or hope it to be. You base your *morality* on whatever the government says is ok. You say that you consider abortion to be wrong, why? Why abortion but not slavery? Your moral code has left you impotent to make any stands.
"Who is to say their idea is wrong? Are you saying that your idea is superior to theirs? If so, why?"
I don't need a lecture on morality from a dedicated moral relativist who thinks there's nothing wrong with slavery.
Go push your pro-slavery BS on a site where it would be better suited, like the DU or maybe a Christian Re-constructionist site.
