Ashley Madison hacking story reveals the real dangers of relativism

Posted on July 23, 2015 at 7:02 AM
The first details of subscribers to the adultery website Ashley Madison have been released following a successful hacking of the website at the weekend.  The hackers, referred to as the Impact Team, claim to have obtained details of all 37million members of the site and have threatened to release more members' details, including their so called ‘fantasies’.
Some have claimed the reason for the hacking is to do with a claim by Ashley Madison that members’ details will be permanently deleted if they pay a $19 fee.  The hackers apparently claim that this is not the case and that details are not permanently deleted, hence the attack and the Impact Team's desire to shut down the site.  But, whatever the reason for the hack, it is incredibly sad to hear that there are at least 37million willing adulterers out there in the western world.  Of course this is only a small portion of the total number of people inclined to infidelity in our world, but it is a huge number, and it shows the lengths people will go to look after their own self-interests and make sure it is kept secret from their nearest and dearest.
What has the world come to when we have a legitimate website claiming that ‘life is too short, have an affair’?  What has the world come to with legitimate TV adverts advertising and encouraging adultery, such as the one containing photographs of a newlywed couple enjoying their wedding day only for little captions to appear on screen suggesting that the bride is about to sleep with her new husband’s best friend?  This is the world of Ashley Madison.  This is our world.
Western society is often praised for being a pillar of democracy, freedom and tolerance.  Yet it is a society that believes in the right to kill the most vulnerable; a society that believes in greed at the expense of the poorest; and now, a society that believes in the right to adultery.  But hey, why not?  This is the new relativist world, right?  This is a world where ‘live and let live’ and ‘who am I to judge’ are phrases which are endlessly spewed out to prove our tolerance in this great new free and easy society.  The age of objective morality has passed.  That was then, this is now.  We don’t need objective morality anymore.  We don’t need to be told that ‘thou shall not kill’, ‘thou shall not commit adultery’ and so on.  That’s the kind of stuff that belongs to the dark ages, to the religious people.  Our society is free from all that and we can do what we want. 
Well I say to hell with this new, free, tolerant society based on relativism.  Relativism is a dirty, selfish, thoughtless scam which destroys society and destroys lives.  We don’t deserve it.  We, as human beings, deserve better than this.  We deserve a moral code which protects people from untimely death.  We deserve a moral code which looks after the poorest and encourages people to look after the needy.  We deserve a moral code which says adultery is wrong.
There are 37million lost souls out there seeking the fulfilment of some misguided fantasy and what are we doing about it?  Are we sitting on our hands doing nothing?  Have we really bought into this society of ‘live and let live’ so that we simply say nothing and let others get on with whatever they want to get on with?  Why?  What use is that to our world?  Our world needs witnesses to a true moral code; a code that stands the test of time and which encourages love, honesty and integrity between all people.  So let’s get out there and be witnesses to this beautiful truth!  Let’s speak out against the scandalous business of the likes of Ashley Madison and their profiting from infidelity.  Let’s speak the truth about the wrong of adultery.  And let’s speak openly about the genuine alternative to this disgusting behaviour; an alternative which encourages people to be open with each other and to help one another resolve difficulties in relationships. 
Relativism is not the answer.  All it does is encourage people to go and do their own thing, to be selfish and not give a second thought to those closest to them; their wife, husband, kids.  Relativism encourages a quick fix, a lustful encounter, a lie.  It reduces love to a simple feeling or emotion, removing any concept of self-giving and sacrifice.  That’s why businesses like Ashley Madison make so much money. It encourages people to be selfish, to reject any notion of an objective moral code and to please themselves how they want, when they want.
And very often this catches up with people.  Indeed, 37million people are very much in panic mode right now as they wonder whether their details will ever be released, uncovering their deceit and infidelity.  And it’s all because they bought into relativism.

I have to show my appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from such a challenge. After looking through the world-wide-web and finding basics which were not powerful, I assumed my entire life was done. Living without the strategies to the difficulties you've fixed through your entire guide is a crucial case, as well as those that would have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn't encountered the website. Your primary ability and kindness in controlling all the stuff was vital. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a point like this. I am able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this expert and amazing guide. I will not be reluctant to suggest your site to anybody who would like guidelines about this problem.
