On Social Change …

I remind that every time in history when our moral sense is about to expand, it’s religious folks who balk, but this is only a sign of the death throes of those old ideas. The new moral perspective has always won. Every, single, time.

But as law is an anchor for sociability, ensuring a new idea earns its worth, so too is religion; each making sure we’re really committed to where we’re about to all go together. Both are a necessary burden which must be drug kicking and screaming into the light.

Just a thought.
