If you haven’t already read my past blog post, “Moral Relativism Makes Me Relatively Sick,” peruse it for a moment. It’s about why we all should hold values and how holding values that differ from somebody else’s doesn’t make you a judgmental bigot.
Recently, GOP Presidential candidate Rick Santorum was accused of holding bigoted views by Piers Morgan (video here). Santorum responded by asserting that holding a moral code–one based on his Catholic faith– does not make him a bigot, it makes him someone who holds a different values (from the interviewer). To call his moral code bigoted, is more broadly calling the Catholic church bigoted, and that in itself it is a bigoted position.
