Center for a Just Society

In Principle v. Pragmatism by Ken Connor, the author attacks an argument that has been proposed by politicians and clergy in recent years. Many have noted that there is a solid middle ground on many of the controversial issues of the day. Connor believes however that this is not true in the slightest. Connor states,

The truth of the matter is that when it comes to the most fundamental questions about human society, culture, and government, the middle ground is not a sensible place to occupy.  When it comes down to the fundamentals, things are either right or they are wrong; to suggest that they may be right for me and wrong for you is nonsense.  Moral relativism comes into conflict with the Law of Non-Contradiction when operating at the level of fundamental values.

Connor advocates that certain issues are non-negotiable, including the abortion debate. He contends that Christians should stand their ground, no matter how difficult it may be.
