Here's what I've tried posting

Moral relativism is the only game in town, and it always has been. Thou shalt not kill, until some priest says God commands it. Thou shalt not steal, unless it's the land and virgin women of the neighbouring tribe that God has commanded you kill. Just how much of the Old Testament objective morality do you subscribe to? Stoned any adulterers lately? Do you think it civilised to do so? What about wearing mixed fibres? And don't get me started on disrespectful children. I got into all sorts of trouble trying to have mine killed, though surely God was on my side, don't you think?
Now, I'm married. I went about it in a very civilised manner - ask my wife. But then I read that bit in the Old Testament about a rapist having to marry his victim, and realised I could have ended up marrying some utterly gorgeous pop star, if only I abandoned my atheistic moral relativism & took on those Biblical absolutes. Well, if she ever leaves me, I won't make that mistake again; Rhianna is hot, and very rich, and God has given me a way to make her mine.
