    In the 1950s, things were stodgy and conservative, but since the 1980s or so, anything goes and anything is accepted in our society.

    Should people who cannot accept this not choose to live here? Or at least find a community better attuned to their way of thinking?

    One example is immigrants to this country, who demand Sharia law, or get "offended" when women wear revealing clothing or some such *******s. Well, if you came to live in the UK, and evidently knew it had a different culture/social values, then why not just abide by it?

    People may think I'm trolling or being deliberately offensive, but it's a serious question. Shouldn't people in general live in areas that suit their personality, lifestyle or attitudes? Since the UK is a relativistic society nowadays, then shouldn't one just go with the flow?

    Yes, that's right, but if someone's really fussed about it wouldn't they move to a country where they practice sharia? I get the feeling you're jumping on the bandwagon here:rolleyes:
    I'm muslim and don't want sharia law here, parts of it are sexist and I'd rather not live somewhere where that is the law.

    I think the question we should all be asking ourselves is should people who are immoral and live their lives where 'anything goes' be allowed to live?

    People should just accept that when you move to a different country you accept their laws etc and not try and change it
    for example christians dont move to iraq and try to build churches everywhere and protest about what the locals wear.

    Yes, since it's the norm in our society.

    Which, by no means, makes it acceptable nor correct. In Nazi Germany, gassing Jews was the norm.

    It is the norm, such as is. It is not hurting anybody or violating other rights, as is gassing Jews.

    I could sit here all night listing what constitutes the content of this thread, but most of them do damage society as a whole, and leads to general degradation. I, for one, find that sort of behaviour offensive.

    OP, you have misunderstood what moral relativism means. I suggest you read an introductory philosophy textbook or stick to terms that you understand.

    but to the extent that you cited?

    Besides, offence is relative.

    It's so tiresome hearing people throw the terms 'relative' and 'subjective' in an attempt to string together an argument.

    Yes, I believe to the extent I cited. Incontrovertibly.
