    Re: morality

    People know what's right and wrong. It doesn't take a genius.

    I wouldn't argue if you substituted the word "mores," though.

    What's right and wrong depends on one's culture, often heavily influenced by one's religious beliefs. When dealing with cultures other than ours, sometimes it does take a genius.

    False. Take someone out of that culture, educate them, and ask the same question. I don't make excuses for backwards crap.

    Having spent years in other cultures, such as rural Africa, I believe I've considerable perspective.

    Re: morality

    Morality is a word that has been vindictively torn out of all Utilitarians' dictionaries, most Social Darwinists have never heard such foolish terms as "morality".
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Did you choose the second option? If so, do you believe that honor killings are moral in societies that declare them as moral?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Nice, exactly
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I chose "Other." Honor killings are immoral. That's just the motive. It's murder. To us.

    She may not, I may not, you may not. But those that perform honor killings believe it is. That is her whole point. Morality is subjective and highly dependent on how you were brought up.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
