Moral Relativism in Action
Anglican and Episcopalian Christians again are left in the lurch by their leaders.
Moral relativism, which has ripened to full flower at the top levels of Anglican and Episcopalian leadership, has betrayed the Christians among their flocks. To every secular, social-justice fad that rolls down the road, their response has been, “Whatever.”
This is explained by tolerance of the liberal-progressive, politically-correct variety, which means that there are no standards of any kind. Nothing can be deemed wrong, morally, socially, or politically.
Morally the end point of this road is sensual gratification as the ruling ethos. Socially it means cultural civil war. Politically it reduces a nation to feckless indifference toward foreign threats to its continued existence.
The latest example of liberal-progressive tolerance is Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams’s declaration of support for adopting Islamic sharia into the British legal code.
