I just had to tell myself to stop feeding a troll who was trying to claim that slave owners, from a time when slavery was popular and legal ought not to be judged by me. Why? Because "the morality of the day" held that slavery was OK. Of course, "the morality of the day" conveniently left out the opinion of the slaves, who historically thought that being owned as property was a pretty sucky thing.

Bastards are getting bolder every month.

I'm not sure you can equate social relativism, which is at least defensible and a philosophical and ethical point of view taught seriously in universities, and sees rigorous analysis from relatively objective sources who aren't trying to spew racism and hatred but rather respect of cultures other than your own, even if you disagree with it, with the kind of thing being talked about in this post.

Ah, I forgot to mention it was in context of a defense of the Confederacy during the civil war. But point taken.
