    I am not quite sure how to rate this question. Right and wrong are convertible terms dependent on personal (individually or in concert) opinion. Right and wrong are NOT convertible terms when applied to natural law.

    The courts seem to change the meaning of our laws and constitution endlessly. God's commandments and laws are written in stone.

    Yes, as manipulated by the corporate elite, the CIA, and the media...

    The quote conceals misdirection of absolute truth at natural law. Social reformers and the welfare state date back for thousands of years. In total opposition to the natural laws of morality and equity. As with Hamilton and hints of a sodomite, with attributes of a immoral Canaanite.

    Thought-provoking indeed. It all depends on 'who' defines right and wrong -- or are right and wrong already built-in? Who says? All ideologies, philosophies, and religions attempt to answer those questions. Is the Truth right?

    If they are convertible for me; then I am like the waves of the ocean and neither hot nor cold.
