Well, the man said on the radio……
"Most people confuse morality with disgust and revulsion, which is a receipe for prejudice."
The OED tells me that:
Ethic is, " a set of moral principles." Moral is, "Concerned with: Goodness and badness; Accepted rules and standard of human behaviour. Prejudice is,"preconceived notion, intolerance."
I was baptised into the christian faith. All the notions of right and wrong, good or evil have been set down in the 10 commandments and a list of seven deadly sins. From my scant knowledge of the beliefs of other religious doctrines they all preach these same moral principles. If I break an "accepted" rule I am punished.
What happens when society changes the rules? Changes which I find totally unaccepable? Changes which, for example, accept sodomy and materialism. Where the phrase, ‘one for all and all for one,’take on a whole new meaning.
I have a preconcieved notion that taking a life is wrong. I am prejudiced against murderers. Well,I refuse to accept the changes society has made over the last 50 years in its moral standards, I refuse to recognise societies decadence. I am prejudiced, I am intolerant, therefore I am immoral.
