Opinion Polls, Terri Schiavo and Truth

Monday, March 21, 2005

"Truth is not determined by majority opinion" +Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger

I saw on CNN that the majority of people polled felt that Congress and the President should back out of the Terri Schiavo issue. I would remind everyone though that Truth is not subjective. Opinion polls are nice and helpful in many issues however on key moral Truths, such as the right of every person to "Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness" are not subjective to the opinion of the masses. There is Good and there is Bad. There is Love and Life and the opposite of that is Sin, Death and Evil. I would also remind the Members of Congress who spoke out that this is not an issue for Congress that if we applied that same logic then American would still be segregated and slavery would still be taking place in the South. American's have given their blood and lives to insure basic freedoms..to insure that Truth would continue. If all American's are not created equal and Truth is just subjective to opinions then I think we as a nation are in much bigger trouble than I thought.
