Please if you are going to attack these "intellectuals" can we not talk about mushrooms (morels) and morals.The reason why society (and those "intellectuals" on this forum rail morality - and yes, even religion) is that morality implies consequence to your actions.
As a counter argument, these "clever" people argue you don't need morels if you have the necessary laws.
Ridiculously, it is these self same bright sparks that make the biggest noise about the likes of Zuma not being in jail yet. But, here's the thing - the law has not actually found Zuma guilty of anything yet! Sure, the PP and the whole arms investigation found evidence that suggests he did illegal thing but, he is still walking free under the law! So these self-same people who want to disregard morels are using a moral argument to push for his arrest.
Hypocrisy and two-facedness at it utter best!
Huh I would argue that you don't need religion to have morals, as a matter of fact if you don't have religion you have better morals would be my argument. Not sure anyone has argued that you don't need morals and if someone is going to argue that good luck to them.
Going off about Zuma is hilarious because South Africa is a giant mess and just about every state department is broken. What moral argument are you talking about he needs to be in jail for breaking the law not for being immoral, being immoral is a result of him breaking the law.
Your whole argument is a mess, maybe you should reconsider it.
