Answering Muslims: Andrew Klavan: Multiculturalism Explained
David Wood called my attention to the following video by Andrew Klavan. He makes the point of absurdity of moral relativism. I was thrown by the video at first because in my experience, we Americans usually does not equate "multiculturalism" with "moral relativism" but I get what Klavan is getting at. I don't think Multiculturalism must take the form that Klavan is advocating against. I see nothing wrong with respecting other people's customs and languages as valid as your own as long as they are giving the same to you - you know like not threatening to kill you, flying airplanes into your building, or changing your laws to make it okay to kill your children for not choosing to follow their culture. I don't see how multiculturism must lead to moral relativism. All cultures are equally valid in that every human being needs salvation from our sins. All moral claims however are not equally valid. Klavan covers many of those reasons.
