Re: NJ says morality is increasing.
You are hardly in a postion to criticize anyone concerning "possibly duplicitous actions" Rob.

Your quite right! Can you think of a man who is in a position to judge? I can...

As for your other questions, you are suggesting a diviation form a thread that is almost clased any how.

if you would like to start a new thread with that starting point, we can all continue the discussion. I would relish the opprotunity to answer your question

We get the right by Being a community, a culture.

Nice jar... we just build a Tower of Babel!

I'll stick with God's tower... it's been around a lot longer.

Re: NJ says morality is increasing.
So we can tell that morality has increased because we like what we are doing more than we like what people used to do?

Almost.

Morality, like knowledge, is cumulative and evolves over time. Societies and cultures learn morals; morals are not something given to them or forced upon them.

It is not a matter of liking what we consider moral today, in fact we may well dislike the restraints imposed by the current morality, but we abide by them.

Well, then I guess the Fundementalist community gets the right to judge the gay community.

I still have no clear idea of what you mean by Law and Justice when it comes to drugs.
