Based on what?No, I would vigorously oppose such a measure, as would every thinking person.
You've already shown that you think it's acceptable to murder unborn children, solely because they aren't people yet.
You've further stated that you don't believe that there's a final arbiter of reality.
So, what basis would you have to justify your opinion of this?
I'm just following your logic.Don't be so unrealistic.
If you're going to say that I'm being unrealistic, perhaps your ideas are unrealistic.
Think of actual issues, the death penalty, euthanasia, abortion, same sex marriage, fox hunting.
We don't hunt foxes here in the west. But if you actually want to slaughter foxes, you go right ahead. Out west we hunt deer, bear, wolves, rabbits, pheasant, chukar, quail, fish of various kinds.
I have spent decades thinking about the rest of these items.
The death penalty is actually a biblically defined issue.
Gen 9:5-6 WEB 5 I will surely require accounting for your life’s blood. At the hand of every animal I will require it. At the hand of man, even at the hand of every man’s brother, I will require the life of man. 6 Whoever sheds man’s blood, his blood will be shed by man, for God made man in his own image.
It seems pretty clear that God placed it squarely in our hands.
The willful and deliberate assassination of people based on the premise that their pain defines their value as a human being, or a quality of life issue....
Abortion, as the willful and deliberate assassination of the unborn, simply because they are inconvenient to the parents.
Marriage too was defined by God as a lifetime commitment between a man and a woman.
You can indeed call it whatever you want, but it's not a marriage.
For a people who want to be known for living their own lives on their own terms, I find it ironically amusing that they would choose to define their lives together as something so anachronistic as a biblically defined definition.
That's like saying that the sun is actually the moon.
Ok. So if a day like the purge was legalized, you'd accept it and fight for the right to engage in mass murder.Whether or not these things are legal or not, decides whether you can do them or not.
Yep. So, murdering Jews and enslaving blacks was legal in their respective periods of history and countries.Whether the legal situation is also the moral one, depends on the individual.
And as such, you've already demonstrated that just as long as it's legal, you're ready to fight tooth and nail for the right of practitioners to engage in murder and slavery.
Which is exactly what I'd previously stated.Legality doesn't determine morality.
Well, I'm asking yours.It proscribes or allows action. It doesn't proscribe thoughts.
And what basis do you have for your beliefs about them.
Such as?There are a few laws in my country which I disagree with and think are morally wrong, but not so seriously that I am moved to protest or attempt to subvert such laws.
We still have capital punishment here in the United states. Some states engage and others don't.Should capital punishment return or abortion be proscribed, that would probably change.
With the overturning of roe v wade, abortion returned to the individual states for determination.
I find it hilarious that the pro-deliberate/willful assassination of non-people clans are all up in arms that the federal government no longer has a right to define what is allowed.
You'd think they'd be ecstatic about it being returned to the individual states.
So, this just tells me that you are in agreement with slavery, in its day; you are in agreement with the nazis and their right to murder Jews, LGBTQ, gypsies, and disabled persons who aren't actually people, in its day.I am perhaps lucky that I agree with the position taken by the law on most issues.
And if the Purge was actually legalized, you'd support it too.
Sounds like you're confused about what you actually believe.That doesn't mean that my position is determined by the law.
Sounds like you flow with the majority.Quite the reverse. It actually indicates that I'm fairly average in my moral position, and the laws I live under reflect the average views of the citizens who live here.
I'm reminded of the lemmings over the cliff adage from the 60's.
As a child did you beg your parents to let you do stupid things because all your friends did them?
