Moral outrage is self-serving.

Find somebody comptabile with you. Stop trying to control -- in words -- whatever everybody else does, and you'll be a lot happier.

Oh brother, people are the same, always have been, always will be. There has been no change in how some people act this way and some don't, etc. the good, the bad, and the ugly, etc., people are humans, they didn't use to be moral and now they are not, totally false, I don't see how that isn't obvious to all, but hey, that's people. Same poop, different day. There will always, forever, be people who like to make up reasons to explain their bad behavior, or rotten luck, or why Sally/Joe doesn't want them.

... Simply, an American. If you can't accept that and learn to speak the language, which is English and fly the flag and have one grain of faithfulness and loyalty and patriotism, then why the heck would someone want to live here? Sorry, I know this is a little off ...

I won't comment on the rest of the post.
But, it's not "English" you yanks speak, it's american english. There's no zees in English. It's an "s" It's Al-li-min-ium, not a-lum-nium
.
P.S bucsgirl and any others.... You said


I also shake my head at the people who want to become a citizen or live here and yet try to either attack the culture or insist on bringing their own culture with them.

Isn't that exactly what you did a few hundred years ago. Invade, impose your own belief systems and morals on the indigenous population, and attack their culture. Oh and spread diseases, introduce drugs, eradicate out of spite an entire species, bring weapons of mass destruction, and pollute the land, air and water with toxic chemicals.

^^^ LOL couldn't have said it better myself. Certain people need to consider the pond they're fishing in before getting all pissy about ppl not having "morals". I tell people this all the time when they gripe about the low-quality fish they're meeting...."Don't fish in a swamp expecting to find a good catch."

Also, the vast majority of people DO have morals. Their morals may not align with yours but that hardly means they don't have any at all.

Don't know I like to think people are of good moral fiber until they show otherwise at which point I don't judge them just simply say their not my type of people. Let them think whatever I been called a bottom feeder still doesn't mean I am one, what is a bottomfeeder exactly a fish that sits on the bottom of a river or pond picking up scraps. Him to be a bottom feeder or being that which is at the bottom with it which is worse I will let you decide, cause if your down there with the bottom feeders what exactly does that make you? A prized catch interesting logic are you telling yourself that? I sure hope so cause your at the same place and one has to wonder if your such a great catch why are you here again?

See it's all in perspective easy for a person standing in shit to say to you that your standing in shit and not acknowledge their doing the same thing. Their really observant of their own presence in the world.

You mean all these people were upstanding citizens or saints in real life before online dating sites came along?

The lies Christians will tell has always boggled my mind.

If you're thinking of the inquisition, that AGAIN was the Catholic Church. IF you'd like to have a long discussion on the differences between Catholicism and Christianty I will be happy to do so outside of this forum.
They are two distinct & different religions, but you knew that, huh? It might be worthy of note that more "people who opposed them" have been killed outside either Christianity and/or Catholicism than by both groups. I will remind you of what the Mysticism-based nazi pary did (6,000,000+/-), what the Godless Russians did (30,000,000+/-), What the godless Chinese commies did (65,000,000+/-); what godless Pol Pot did (2,000,000+/-); what the mostly Shinto Japanese did to Nanking (200,000-300,000).
(breakdown here)

NONE of these are done by Christians or catholics but rather by groups subscribing to your secular "Morality (of) .....societal standards on daily behaviour", to borrow from you.
The only Christian involvement in any of these was as victims. The same behaviors are still going on in Darfur and the Sudan with the Christians and pagan animists taking the brunt of the slaughter.

For years now, evangelical activists from the United States have been speaking out against homosexuality and cheering on antigay legislation all over Africa.

Over the years-ever since my youth, occasionally someone will ask me if I'm religious and if I attend church. When I tell them I'm not religious and I don't attend church, I sometimes got the response "But how will you learn to have good morals if you don't attend church?" If I ever get that asked again, I'll tell them that I ordered morals off of the internet, and I ordered the heavy duty version to make me super-moral. How good are the morals of priests who have sexually preyed on children?

I like to live by the following motto "Treat others how you would like to be treated." My expectations for someone else are the same as I have for myself. I have gotten my feelings hurt several times on pof by cruel men who I think either enjoy being jackasses or have an inability to empathize. That being said, I have also met kind and honest people on here. The important thing is to not let some bad apples make you think the barrel is completely full of bad apples.

Right now, I admit, I'm kind of in retreat mode from pof. I've had some conversations lately with some real jerks and I am honestly afraid right now to meet someone, because I worry they will be really mean as well. I admit, I don't have a thick enough hide to handle some of it. I cry too easily. I think that maybe 80% of the men on plenty of fish are either bitter women-haters (because of perpetual singledome or getting dumped unkindly) or they just truly are not nice guys who only look at women as conquests to pump and dump. But that still leaves 20%.

^^^^You are a very good looking woman and you appear to be very kind.
However, you have more issues than national geographic.
Seriously, work on yourself until you get to the point where you LOVE yourself,
and you are confident in what you offer.

No man can fix you or make you better until you do that.
If you really believe that about the men on POF...then stop looking for men on
POF.

Mosey on down to Off Topics.....NewYorker is showing us all what "morals" are about.
Laughing and making fun of a man crying about his sick child.

And to think I stuck up for her against Pig....she's just nasty.

I love it, I absolutely love it. Boo has what used to be called “a command of the English language”.

Actually, once she does that, she will no longer need a man to “fix her”.

I stay out of Off Topic, too nasty for me. There is something really strange about NY58. Shortly after she first started posting, I said that I believed there were two different, entirely different, people posting from that account. And this is not bipolar, a bipolar person swings between euphoria and depression. NY58 swings between being human and being a Nazi concentration camp guard. Between liking people and hating everyone. Between siding with women that all men are pigs, and siding with men that all women are ….. something, not sure what.

I suspect you are right. Once a lot of the things have settled in my life and I'm living on my own, I may not have such a desire to get paired off. Things in my life will be improved so much, I might be happy with the way things are.

It seems to work like this on here..........................................................................................................................Morals
People park them at the door. They
speak their minds. How they see things.
I highly doubt that many act like this in real
life. This is a place to unload. To rant.
Just like this is a rant.

I like to live by the following motto "Treat others how you would like to be treated."

That never worked for me in the dating scene. I tried explaining it to a girl, but she was SO adamant that she's not into being taken to a football game, then watching porn. It's how I'd like to be treated, tho! This is all so confusing! ;)

Morals? What common moral laws are etched in stone and universally understood by everybody that you think should be there?

My position is that morals are different than ethics. Morals are a spin-off of ethics, and become more personal, and technically has the potential to be unethical. Being ethical is objective, where morality is based on that, but adds in a subjective/religious/traditional twist. Rules you abide by, whether they be classically ethical, neutral, or not ethical. Like not eating meat on Fridays. Or the duty to cut off a man's hands for stealing produce.
