Every time you have spoken about it prior to this post. You have not preceded any of your statements about natural rights with "I believe" or "it is my opinion."Can you find where I presented my statements about natural rights as "fact?" I don't think that was my angle. If you can find me saying that I'll address it.
Why are you so dead set against acknowledging religious sexual abuse? "Yeah but!" isn't a valid debating mechanism.Okay cool, but more kids happen to be raped by their parents than by religious leaders. Why are we even arguing about this small point anyway?
And there you go again. You would say that they have a natural right. Demonstrate that they actually have a natural right. In fact, it is your OPINION that they shouldn't be treated that way, and in that, I'd agree with you. I am not going to argue that just because you or I want the situation to be different, that the situation is now magically different. People in the Middle East might wish that American culture was different. They're welcome to wish whatever they want. That doesn't mean a damn thing is going to change. You keep presenting your opinion as though it was a fact. Unless you can demonstrate objectively that it is a fact, it's just not so.I get it. I would say those women have a natural right not to be raped, because they are humans and humans have human rights. It seems you would argue that those women have no right not to be raped, because humans only have rights when their governments say they do. You seem to not grasp the difference here because you keep saying the same types of things, which causes me to keep saying the same types of things.
Morals are inherently subjective. Your morals are no more demonstrably right than the morals of the people in the culture that you criticize. You just keep throwing around terms like "morals" and "rights" because you think it lends your opinions credibility. They simply have not earned that credibility.And lastly, it is not foolish to suggest that it simply is immoral to rape women and blame them for what just happened to them (not just immoral in your personal individual opinion, but immoral as recognized universally). The same way it is universally considered immoral to kill (deprive of life) and steal (deprive of property). These things are not just wrong according to some and okay according to others. They're wrong, whether governments sanction it or not.
