Hmm .... I would think that adopting the "Moral High Ground " would mean the individual is upholding a universally recognized standard of goodness. Hazel, as a practising Christian would surely adhere to this, but in your post you are labelling Hazel and people like her as "idiots".
No, I'm not. Stop putting words in my mouth.
Can you define this "universally recognised standard of goodness"? As far as I'm aware, no such code exists.
Give it your best shot, though. My bet is that I'll be able to name countless societies who adhere to no such code.
