    Perfect Is Morally Bankrupt...

    Who the hell am I to believe anything is perfect? Moral perfectionism would be a scary goal to have. How very ******* boring.

    Who Is?

      My view is that if a person has integrity, sound judgment, is truthful, sincere and honest; then such a person has a basically moral character. Add to these character traits, a genuine loving concern for the welfare of others which aren’t their friends and family...
