Justification

sheep

An idea, ethic, or principle is defensible only to the degree that it can be discussed without censorship or coercion…

…. and can therefore be accepted or rejected on its own merits, not the pronouncements of the powers that be.

“Because we have always done it this way!” is not a reason.

“Because God said so!” is not a reason.

“Because that’s what the holy scriptures say!” is not a reason.

“Because that’s what ‘a good Christian’ is supposed to do!” is not a reason.

“Because that’s what ‘a good American’ is supposed to do!” is not a reason.

Only a truly moral person can argue right from wrong without appeals to tradition, authority, obedience, conformity, divine command, or patriotism.
