I find it interesting that so many people who reject Christianity because of it’s “morals,” become moralizers themselves – just in a different direction. From the students and faculty on college campuses who trying to shut down free speech in the name of “protecting feelings,” to the posturing of the pro-abortion crowd, to the transgender issue, and much more.
As many Christian apologists have stated over the years, “Everyone has a worldview.” Just because someone rejects one set of morals, doesn’t mean they actually live in a moral-free universe. That would pretty much be impossible. The problem is, these new self-appointed morality cops can get absolutely hysterical about an issue and go straight to attack mode – as many who have posted controversial thoughts on social media can attest.
So the minute you espouse views that are outside current politically correct doctrine, and someone attacks you for “moralizing,” just remember they’re being hypocritical.
Principles matter. The question becomes, which set of morals will lead to a better world, and which set leads to disaster?
