Dogooders Need To Stop Pushing Their Morality On Others
Often times conservatives hear how we want to push our morality on other by legislation. Who really are the biggest offenders of pushing their values on others. Well, it's the left wing dogooders. Their morality says that each person should be entitled to food, shelter, education, healthcare, whether or not they can pay for it. They are such dogooders that they think everyone should live by their morality and so pass coercive laws so that everyone behaves they way they think they should. Conservatives may indeed agree that the right moral choice is...........

You should all know my views on morality by now.

Perhaps, at least to an extent. But you are not telling the whole story when you imply that do gooders only come from one side of the political debate.

 You are correct, the right wing has bought in to the charade, probably for the same reason the left does---political gain. I find it hard to believe in the goodness in the hearts of this type "altruist"-----one who likes spending others' resources for his supposed "moral" purposes.

I do thank you for admitting that people shove their morality on others all the time thru legislation. Seems to come down to who has the power to get their favorite moral issues passed into coercive laws. Perhaps the government should stay out of the moral making business entirely.

To help take care of those who can't take care of themselves. We just believe in not forcing our morality on others.

There is a difference between forcing someone to live by your own idiosyncratic rules and having a democratically reached consensus that taxes should be used to help those who need it.

Universal health care does not force anyone to adopt a specific set of morals to live by and it therefore is not pushing morality on to others.

 Ha ha ha, when it's your moral coercion you decide to name it "consensus" and "help." It does not appear that you consider taking from some to give to others by force an immoral act, or at least even a moral question---very interesting.

Then you describe any morality you apparently disagree with as idiosyncratic and using force.

I think you should really carefully try to understand exactly what you say.

If it's not the job of the government to protect the life and quality of life of its citizens, then we shouldn't have a government.

 Oh, protection of life seems to be a necessary function of government without moral coercion, since we all give up to the government our right to use force if someone is trying to take our life away. As far as "quality" of life, I am not sure what you mean? and who says what quality is? What if quality means forcing one's moral standards on those who don't agree?

First tell your fellow christards to stop making laws based on religion. Otherwise, shut it.

 Don't you mean morality rather than religion? OK, I've told all the Christians I know to not force laws on other people that may reflect their moral positions. Now, will you do the same?
