Josh and Gabi discuss the difference between moral relativism and libertarianism, in response to a pro-choice blogger who thinks we confused the two in a recent episode about a leaked Planned Parenthood document. After defining the terms, they carefully re-analyze the document to determine the validity of the bloggers accusation.

Listen to an excerpt of an advanced pro-life training I recorded in Stockton in June, 2012. The training was hosted by Sohlnet and At the Well Ministries. More sections of this training to be released in the following weeks.
Credit for the material in this section of the training goes to Steve Wagner and myself.
Notes from Josh:
- Sorry for the occasionally scratchy audio. Apparently I was using a pretty poor-quality lapel mic.
- Read the articleI referred to in this section: “Refuting Those Oxford “After-Birth Abortion” Philosophers”

Whether you’re a gamer or not, you probably know of the recent release of the latest game in the Call of Duty franchise, “Modern Warfare 3.”
Activision revealed last week that MW3 set sales records, selling more than 6.5 million units, just in North America and the UK.
Oh yeah, and that was just on opening day.

While working last week with the Justice For All exhibit at Kennesaw State University, I got into a conversation with two students, Justin and Teesha, about moral relativism. There are few topics more difficult to discuss than moral relativism. This is partially because it’s a complicated topic already, but also because few people are open to changing their views on relativism. Even if a person is typically open-minded, the whole concept of relativism is that we can have differing views on a subject, yet we can both be right.
When I train students to respond to moral relativism, I tell them to start by asking a clarification question. Steve Wagner of JFA points out that there are two different types of relativism, so it’s best to ask, “do you believe morals are relative to individuals or cultures?”
