converting back unto theism - yes it's true.

Those damned moral absolutes just go on changing!

On a lighter note, I'm pretty sure the Catholic Church has done lots of things that they knew at the time weren't all that hot.

You think when priests fucked little boys that they didn't know wtf they were doing, and that it was wrong?

Burning people at the stake? You don't think anyone thought "Hey, maybe this isn't the best way to go about this?"

The Spanish Inquisition?

The Dark Ages?

No, of course not. It was only deemed wrong AFTER we could examine what the church had done. Yeah.

The fixed moral standards can't change. Their interpretation has to happen to be accurately applied to any given situation.
