That’s one way to sum it up. Living in a post-modern world, everything is relative, things are not defined in absolutes. It’s as if instead of things being right and wrong, they are just different. Everything is a shade of gray. What’s wrong for one person isn’t for another.
While this might be true in certain cases (such as clothing or hairstyles) applying this standard to morality and behavior has led to a loss of values in our society. Why is murder illegal? Seriously. Why wouldn’t be ok for some people to murder and not others? I mean, it already happens with abortion, and now, in some states, assisted suicide. Where do we draw the line on which life is acceptable to murder and which isn’t?
