Liberal feelings vs. Judeo-Christian values

Liberal feelings vs. Judeo-Christian values

With the decline of the authority of Judeo-Christian values in the West, many people stopped looking to external sources of moral standards in order to decide what is right and wrong. Instead of being guided by God, the Bible and religion, great numbers – in Western Europe, the great majority – have looked elsewhere for moral and social guidelines.

For many millions in the 20th century, those guidelines were provided by Marxism, communism, fascism or Nazism. For many millions today, those guidelines are ... feelings. With the ascendancy of leftist values that has followed the decline of Judeo-Christian religion, personal feelings have supplanted universal standards. In fact, feelings are the major unifying characteristic among contemporary liberal positions.


The entire edifice of moral relativism, a foundation of leftist ideology, is built on the notion of feelings deciding right and wrong. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.
