In the end society enforces what is deemed acceptable behavior at any given moment. Societal enforcement occurs at many levels, familial, local, religious congregation, school, and ultimately, in this country, at a secular governmental level. All of the parochial subsets can only enforce and encourage behavior that does not contradict the supreme law of the land, and that is why it is so vitally important that everyone participate in shaping our collective mores at every given time. We are our own conscience.

What you state above is true,,,, but has little to do with the Tao, Logos or TRUTH.

We have no such language for morality. Hence the subjective nature of mores. It all comes down to each individuals personal interpretation of not only right and wrong, but the actual words used to convey such.
>>

I have already said I agree that no language is adequate that is why the Word was made flesh and Jesus Christ taught in parables, that is why the Holy Spirit is present in our lives to guide us to all TRUTH.

Morals and ethics are sometimes situational, but if the logos or tao is an integral part of creation as i believe then that truth is not situational.
