Might be too seriously of a topic, but I've been having a discussion with a co-worker about things that are and are not moral absolutes. As in, things that are always wrong, no matter the circumstance. It started from talking about the Ten Commandments, but I don't think the convo needs to be religious. For example, murder is a pretty shitty thing to do, but it doesn't take much imagination to think of a time it would be just, like if someone was actively trying to murder you or someone you love. Same with stealing food because you're starving. Whereas with rape, it's tough to think of an instance where you'd go, "yeah, she had it coming." Even if it was a dude trying to rape me, I think it would be completely justifiable for me to beat him to within an inch of his life, but raping him back, while hilarious in that context, would still not be just. So far, we've got rape, child/animal abuse, and slavery (which, oddly enough, aren't specifically outlawed in the Bible, to my knowledge). FOCUS 1: What are some moral absolutes? Things that are inherently wrong regardless of context. FOCUS 2: What are some some moral iffys? Things that are wrong in general, but are justified in certain situations. FOCUS 3: I dunno, something funny or boob-related. I hate suggesting completely serious threads.
