Absolute Moral Authority Roundup

Posted by mesablue on December 18, 2006

I don’t intend this blog to be an aggregator or just a linkfest. However, since I chose to name the blog Absolute Moral Authority, a little context is probably in order. The issue has gotten a lot of attention lately and is one of the reasons I decided to carve out a little spot in the blogosphere. Plus, I need to figure out fun little things like trackback pings.

I haven’t seen an Absolute Moral Authority roundup anywhere else, so hopefully this post will actually serve some small purpose.

To start off, Hot Air Introduces the Absolute Moral Authority card.

Find yourself in a jam? Are your anti-war lies catching up with you? Then use the Absolute Moral Authority card and get right out of trouble free. Once you play the Absolute Moral Authority card, no one can ever question you again, no matter what you say or do!

A great article from last year by Charles Krauthammer — Bad Choice for an Antiwar Voice in The Washington Post.

Pajama Pundits on Cindy Sheehan and Moral Authority.

The Unalienable Right serves up on Maureen Dowd’s unique view of moral authority.

Mark Steyn covers the issue in a New York Sun opinion editorial, Absolute Authority?

The QandO Blog, You Will Respect My (Moral) Authority!

When it comes to making arguments from a position of moral authority, let him who is without sin cast the first stone.

An ongoing discussion at Political Crossfire Where does the ultimate moral authority come from?

That’s enough to get started. In the future, I’ll link articles that I feel are important to the issue and actually add my thoughts.
