    What was that lady talking about. When the fuck did you guys ever claim to be anti-Islam and why would that even be a character flaw?

    I think you guys are conflating Cultural relativism with moral relativism.

    Moral relativism is the belief that moral’s are contextual in regards to the situation (Ie: Stealing = Immoral, but Stealing to feed one’s family = Morally acceptable)

    Cultural relativism is the idea that says that someone outside of a cultural setting doesn’t have the right to judge those in that setting according to the observers moral ideas. Cultural relativism could be considered a type of Moral relativism with much more specificity in it’s application.

    While I can understand with your problems with Cultural relativism, I don’t think you guys want to be condemning Moral relativism as a whole. The belief in uncompromising adherence to an unchanging moral framework is part of the mindset that leads to the honor killings and religious bullshit that you so despise.

    SHUT UP. YOU ARE MAKING US ALL LOOK BAD. THERE ARE LOTS OF GOOD MUSLIMS. YOU’RE NOT LISTENING.
    Then I got trolled by the moderators to the point I got a warning to play nice or get banned. Nice forum. True story.

    Because of you, I want my phone’s ringtone to be Kevin Swanson, “You need to take a big, fat, black *BEEP* and rub it all over your box.”

    Read this. Even in progressive, liberal, free thinking Netherlands there are stupid people! A girl of 17 died because she refused to take a vaccin against measles. It’s 2013 for god’s sake, not the middle ages!
