PJB and Relativity--the Chaos Machine

As we pointed out below, "relativism," the philosophical equivalent to "I'm OK, You're OK" is a certain path to chaos, as Benedict XVI tells us.

And that "relativism" showed its shapeless face in the Peter Pace brouhaha, on which PJBuchanan hits the nail on the head, again:

What this uproar tells us is that America is no longer a moral community. On the most fundamental issues – abortion, promiscuity, homosexuality, euthanasia, sterilization, cloning, and the creation of, and buying and selling of, fetuses for research – we are at war. What part of the nation sees as progress, the other sees as depravity.

And where there is no moral community, there will not long be one country. For in a religious or culture war, there is no peaceful coexistence.

One side wins, the other side loses.

"A house divided against itself...."
