Turtle Bay and Beyond: In a democratic society, politics should be based on the exchange of rational arguments, not on negative campaigning and name-calling. This poster does not present any reasoned arguments in favour of same-sex marriage or gay adoption. Instead, its apparent purpose is to prevent the exchange of rational arguments from taking place and to belittle, marginalise and denigrate those holding different views. Their message is simple: Don’t listen to the arguments of our opponents — they are BAD and IGNORANT people.

Archbishop of Westminster: Human Dignity: What is it? Why is it important? | ADF Alliance Alert » Global

De ADF Alliance Alert » Global, por ADF Alliance Alert

The Tablet: ‘Human Dignity: What is it?’ This may seem a slightly strange title, as you may think archbishops ought to have a clear view about what something like ‘human dignity’ is. My reason for choosing it is that I would like to explore with you a problem on which Catholic theologians, philosophers and lawyers all have an important contribution to make. The problem is simply put: the precise meaning of ‘human dignity’ is increasingly being questioned, particularly now in ethics and law. This is no mere academic debate. It matters very much because as you know the notion of human dignity plays a key role especially in international conventions, and in our understanding of the moral life. How in our pluralist society we develop and hold onto a shared understanding of such a key concept can have an immense influence on the quality of moral and social development of people.
