Dick Cheney and same-sex marriage: Relative moral relativism

There are myriads of triads. One of these consists of the three branches of philosophy, namely, ethics, logic and metaphysics. For our purposes, morality and ethics are the same thing. Now, we all know what “relative” means: your uncle, I mean my aunt; agh I mean snip snip, Bob’s our aunt. Another example: what’s good for THIS goose, is bad for THAT goose. Last one; also about animals: one man’s meat is another man’s poisson (fish).

Al Mohler, in his podcast “The Briefing,”today (20 November 2013) talks about the public spat between Dick’s two daughters, one for and the other against same-sex marriage. Cheney says that he was once against same-sex marriage but changed his mind when one of his daughters took a partner, who were later pronounced woman and wife. Mohler said that Cheney is only one among several politicians who changed their views on same-sex marriage when one or more of their relatives wanted to marry their own sex.
