The message that President Obama delivered in his speech at Notre Dame was: morality is immoral. Pro-life is the extremist position, not a moral position. Yet we should compromise and work to reduce abortions. Where's the compromise between life and death - and why work to reduce the number of them occurring if there's nothing wrong with them?
I have never thought about my sexuality being right or wrong. To me it has always been a case of finding the right person.
Capital punishment is as fundamentally wrong as a cure for crime as charity is wrong as a cure for poverty.
It is wrong to try to avoid the struggle against imperialism under the pretext that independence and revolution are important, but that peace is still more precious.
Politics is a science. You can demonstrate that you are right and that others are wrong.
It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
George S. Patton
I'm not saying that atheists can't act morally or have moral knowledge. But when I ascribe virtue to an atheist, it's as a theist who sees the atheist as conforming to objective moral values. The atheist, by contrast, has no such basis for morality. And yet all moral judgments require a basis for morality, some standard of right and wrong.
William A. Dembski
When you think of it, really there are four fundamental questions of life. You've asked them, I've asked them, every thinking person asks them. They boil down to this; origin, meaning, morality and destiny. 'How did I come into being? What brings life meaning? How do I know right from wrong? Where am I headed after I die?'
That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.
William J. H. Boetcker
I see that the path of progress has never taken a straight line, but has always been a zigzag course amid the conflicting forces of right and wrong, truth and error, justice and injustice, cruelty and mercy.
If saving money is wrong, I don't want to be right!
I've done enough wrong on my own, I don't want to get blamed for something I didn't do.
We shall act with good intentions, but at times we will be wrong. When we are, let us admit it and try to right the situation.
Once we realize that imperfect understanding is the human condition there is no shame in being wrong, only in failing to correct our mistakes.
A girl in a bikini is like having a loaded pistol on your coffee table - There's nothing wrong with them, but it's hard to stop thinking about it.
Things are as they are. Looking out into it the universe at night, we make no comparisons between right and wrong stars, nor between well and badly arranged constellations.
Any time scientists disagree, it's because we have insufficient data. Then we can agree on what kind of data to get; we get the data; and the data solves the problem. Either I'm right, or you're right, or we're both wrong. And we move on. That kind of conflict resolution does not exist in politics or religion.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I believe in a higher power and I believe in good and bad, right and wrong. You sleep in the bed you make.
Youth is impulsive. When our young men grow angry at some real or imaginary wrong, and disfigure their faces with black paint, it denotes that their hearts are black, and that they are often cruel and relentless, and our old men and old women are unable to restrain them. Thus it has ever been.
Humanity is acquiring all the right technology for all the wrong reasons.
R. Buckminster Fuller
You can't regulate child labor. You can't regulate slavery. Some things are just wrong.
Life is hard, and a lot of people come home tired from work. If they're gonna spend half an hour reading, they want some entertainment and a sense of achievement. So that's what I give them. That's all I'm trying to do. Is that really so wrong?
Often any decision, even the wrong decision, is better than no decision.
For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.
H. L. Mencken
To do a great right do a little wrong.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
