Moral

“Today we are faced with a challenge that calls for a shift in our thinking, so that humanity stops threatening its life-support system. We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own – indeed, to embrace the whole creation in all its diversity, beauty and wonder. This will happen if we see the need to revive our sense of belonging to a larger family of life, with which we have shared our evolutionary process. In the course of history, there comes a time when humanity is called to shift to a new level of consciousness, to reach a higher moral ground. A time when we have to shed our fear and give hope to each other. That time is now.”

–Wangari Maathai

–Leo Tolstoy

333 – “Christian, if you cannot say definitively, no matter what, that adults creeping on teenage girls is wrong, do not tell me how you stand against moral relativism.”

–Russell Moore, President of the ERLC of the Southern Baptist Convention

Note: Russell Moore tweeted this to Roy Moore (no relation that I am aware of) supporters in Alabama, pointing out the hypocrisy of supporting a political candidate accused of immoral acts, while claiming to follow a morality set out by your religion.
