What was so moral about homophobe Graham Capill, Rick? He denounced lesbians and gays all the while raping three little girls. One of them was on the verge of suicide before one of them spoke up and he was apprehended and made to pay for his crimes. And what about the Catholic clergy pedophiles who do the same thing while their hierarchy opposes same-sex marriage and parenting? What's so 'moral' about that?

You can't have it both ways. You can't allow gay marriage and then try to uphold morals. You have clearly stated that morals are flexible, non binding, and totally arbitrary and subject to change as society 'develops'. Therefore, what stops me from pursuing incest as my prefers lifestyle? Some DNA scare? So what? Who are you to tell me I'm wrong. What if I want to commit crime? Who are you to say my crimes are wrong? You re judging me? You are discriminating against me. I was born this way and am expressing myself. This is serious. You must acknowledge that it is inconsistent to think otherwise. What society says is wrong today may be perfectly acceptable in 50 years time. So why are you not all anarchists? Logic dictates you must be, as this is the only full out working of holding to what you really believe..flexible morals, not being shackled to the old ways of the past, the groaning chains of Chrsitanity holding you back. Well then, that would leave me totally free to do whatever wish. You cannot stop me. Morals are a human construction and nothing more. But you seem you betray yourself in that you want peace, happiness, and love, all without being honest enough to acknowledge that these very things are moral absolutes themselves. But you are winning your war against them, not realizing you are the very ones, along with us, who will cry out for these self same things when your amoral society becomes a reality. Be honest, do you really believe morals are arbitrary and totally flexible, of do you think they are based on something other than mere electrochemical impulses in a human brain. If so, I challenge you to tell me what they are based on and where these morals come from. Otherwise, don't cite 'love' as a reason for apllowing this. We are not as gullible as you think.
