The Classic Identity Politics

“Evil things are still evil if I am a white, well-off, religious man.” – Ben

Had to share this because the opinion by the young lady is one I have heard too often. When did our appearance become the qualifier for having an opinion on a certain topic? Or even more so, for knowing right from wrong?

She says abortion is wrong for her, but who’s to say it’s not right for someone else? I love this because it goes back to the fact that either truth is subjective or it’s not. At some point our society will have to make a decision, and not making one is still making one.
