The fact that this question even exists proves that moral truth must be absolute. Right and wrong is not something that can be argued, for if it is actually relative why can we find it just to lock up Murderers? This simply could be just their morals. If right and wrong were reletive then wouldn't it be justifiable for people to go and commit hate crimes such as murder, abuse, and rape? Isn't it obvious that there is no consistency to relativity of moral truth for there are some things that can not be justified? <br />
Many times people confuse someone not knowing what the truth is for there not being a truth. Just because someone does not know that something is wrong doesnt mean that it makes it right. The example of murder or rape is always a good example of this. Sometimes there are people who think that it is alright to murder but that doesnt mean that it is. Imagine that you went out today and killeed someone and during your hearing you told the judge that you did not know it was wrong. How well do you think that this case would hold up? It wouldn't because it makes no sense.<br />
Right and wrong is not something that can be argued because to argue it is yet proving that there is an absolutely right answer to the question.

Somewhere in the middle. I believe harm is always wrong. But I dont think we need all these rigid rules. In my opinion, when we start making rules for everything, we start making rules more important than the wellbeing of others. Plus when we start making rules the basis for all morality, those who we deem as morally incompetent are always treated bad.
