Thanks to both of you... Tacoma and NiceGuy... it was a very interesting discussion... and one that has been going on for centuries...
I am hopeful that you took what I said within a philosophical perspective even though my religion is the basis for my morals.
In conclusion, my point being, if morality becomes a purely subjective individual right...then everyone has the right to be always "right" if they so choose ... who determines whose morality is more right and less wrong than the other?? The 'more or less' of morality is a faulty qualifier. This is train of thought is a reality within our society and its effects are making it more and more difficult for a society to function... hence the huge backlog within the court systems, the massive amount of detail that has to go in a contract, for example, for those that have bought a house, the mountain of papers that you had to sign so that everyone has to "cya" the contract. Even the legislative function is becoming so clogged... society HAS to create more and more laws to cover all realms of life.
At some point this implode and will collapse.
I respectfully disagree with your views...but I truly thank you for sharing them.
Peace be with you all...
