Absolute Morality?

I take it that today's the day that Kim Davis goes back to work in Kentucky.

In light of that and whatever "decision" she feels she needs to make, I want to play you something from Richard Dawkins regarding faith.  He's asked about faith and "absolute morality."  I've always loved his answer:


Let's hear it for secular moral philosophy and rational discussion.

My favorite Dawkin's video from 2007 interview.

"Stress Related Diseases like duodenal ulcers".
Wiki
"In 2005, the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Marshall and Robin Warren, his long-time collaborator, "for their discovery of the bacterium Helicobacter pylori and its role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease"."

SJWs always project. Christians "are borrowing from Secular Morality"

Freud made the same mistake that the irrational atheists of today still make. They think that because they are influenced by centuries of Christendom's social inertia, that they possess a variant morality that is, if not necessarily better than Christian morality, at least equally valid.

They don't. They possess the increasingly tattered remnants of Christian morality, that is all, and as it fades with each post-Christian generation, the Men of the West devolve into paganism, and not the high paganism that was so virtuous as to compete with early Christianity, but the low paganism of the Celt, the Viking, the Mongol, the Aztec, and the African cannibal.

Islamophobe.
But the actions of Communist secular Governments under Atheists Stalin and Mao do not count.

Their actions could/would never be cloaked as the "will of god", IF the correlation you suggest is accurate. Wicked people do wicked things. Religion is simply a convenient means some people utilize. Like Mother Theresa.
