Do moral views of the religious often get twisted when their beliefs get questioned?

Posted by: reece

Comments would be great.

  • Yes. It ultimately falls down to special pleading

  • No. Their morality is fluent

  • The poll is to black and white on the issue. It mostly comes down to individual religious people and not the general religious populace. I've never seen people do the "special pleading" when their beliefs are question.

  • Circumstance should never and can never effect true faith.

Can you give an example of this "twisting"?

@UtherPenguin Just as an example: Do you believe good is all knowing and all powerful? Do you believe that god has a great plan? Do you believe it is moral of god to build up Ecosystems just to have them wiped out knowing full well of what would happen? Do you think it was morally just of god to kill the innocent in the flood?

@reece Interesting example. Though I am not Christian, so I would not necessarily know how to answer those questions from a Christians point of view (the Islamic view on the Flood is much more different than the Bible's, for example, the Flood is only described as on a regional scale in Islam)
