This post didn’t get any traction in another forum, so I am trying it again here under a different title.
Of all places, the *New York Times *at last deals with the problem of moral subjectivism.
“When Death Is on the Docket, the Moral Compass Wavers”
(If you get an Ad, wait about 15 seconds.)
This piece begins by bemoaning the fact that the executioners of capital offenders often have Christian convictions that are at war with what they do. The only way they can get through their job is to morally distance themselves and justify the act of killing a vicious criminal.
Too bad the New York Times couldn’t recognize the moral distancing of the Supreme Court that justified Roe v. Wade, or its own distancing of itself from the execution of the innocent unborn.
Does anyone care to offer other examples of “moral distancing” in the media?
