You’d think, by how they are acting, that they were old, nasty curmudgeons when they were beared by their mothers.

Yeah, right. If you don’t have religion you can’t be good.

Let’s hear it for deep thinking from the ayatollahs of so-called Christianity.

I think Prager makes a good point. Too often what is moral becomes only “what is right for me”. ‘Other-centered’ morality has waned and that is not a good thing.

That has more to do with the debasement of the idea of ‘freedom’ than secular humanism.

Ever since I attended college I have been convinced that “studies” either confirm what common sense suggests or they are mistaken. I realized this when I was presented study after study showing that boys and girls were not inherently different from one another, and they acted differently only because of sexist upbringings.

I don’t believe Prager is unique in this, but I might have a little more shame about stating that I only believe scientific research when it confirms what I already believe to be true.

Let’s just refresh our memories as to what Dennis Prager is all about:

Dennis Prager in the 1990s was still bigoted

Conservative Dennis Prager Knows It’s Not Rape If His Wife “Submits”

So yeah. The idea of him lecturing anyone else on “morality” is pretty damn laughable.

Oh really? What evidence do you have for this? “Other-centered” morality has waned? People used to own slaves and practice racism; that’s a pretty blatant example of the opposite of “other-centered morality”.

Come on, Dark. Can you REALLY agree with him when he says:

Without God and Judeo-Christian religions, what else is there?

and be willing to write off the several billion people who do not adhere to Judeo-Christian religions as being morally deficient?!?!?!
