Question

Slavery has been practiced world-wide since the earliest days of humanity and is still practiced in parts of the world even today. Even the Bible condones slavery. Yet today in America most people think that slavery is absolutely morally wrong. Polygamy has been practiced world-wide since the earliest days and is still practiced in parts of the world even today. Some major religions require polygamy. There are many holy men in the Bible who had multiple wives and concubines. Yet today in America most people think that polygamy is absolutely morally wrong. We even have laws against polygamy. The different cultures and countries in the wold don't always agree with us and we often don't agree with them. How can we decide what is right or wrong in relation to these two issues? Who gets to be the ultimate arbiter of moral right? Present the reasons you have for claiming that these acts are morally right or morally wrong. Try to come up with more examples of actions that are considered right and wrong based on different cultures and ages and share those examples with your classmates.
