    Moral relativists HAVE a moral code, though they deride morality in others. Their moral code is socialism.

    Then the burden of proof would have to be on said socialists to prove why their moral code is superior to other moral codes.

    Their answer to this is the general appeal to puerile envy. "it's not fair that (insert aspect of reality)"

    Dint'ja know? We're too inferior to understand their superior moral code. That's why they won't burden themselves to come up with any real proof.

    No the burden of proof is on RWA to prove that the only possible ethical out come of moral reletivism is socialism. All he did was say moral relativism = socialism, with no evidence to back it up. It is the exact same as a Liberal saying Bush = Satan. While it is possible that moral relativism = socialism just as it is possible that Bush = Satan, niether provides an argument other than an oppinion of moral relativists or Bush respectively.

    I didn't say it was the only outcome. It's just that an overwhelming percent of moral relativists are socialists. They may lie about it like most libs, but they ARE socialists.

    Moral relativism is an attempt to persuade individuals in general to disengage their judgement from their own lives and world, and to defer to liberal judges for morality and right and wrong. It's true. I don't know how to prove it to you except to suggest you take off your blinders.

    So moral relativism tries to convert others into defering judgement to liberal judges for morality. Yet you ask me to defer to your judgement of moral relativists without any proof other than the cliched phrase of

    "Take off your blinders"

    Sounds like a Micheal Moore catch phrase.

    Yes. It appears your learning. How splendid!
    Go read some new age or liberal dogma and it will support my assertions. those who refuse to accept the liberal view of the world are labelled and villified.
    It's a good one, despite the rotundity of it's pompous author.

    dont get your hopes up, merely trying to understand your point of view

    Any examples of what qualfies as liberal dogma


    Its overuse has made it meaningless and has now just become a catch phrase for conspiracy theorists with no proof.
