Currently in the news is the debate in [tag]UK[/tag] government over a form of legal [tag]suicide[/tag].
Unsurprisingly this is being criticised as a “back door to [tag]euthanasia[/tag]”.
My issue however is the argument against being used by various parties.
They will start with a well reasoned, well vocalised argument, and then spoil it all by mentioning religion.
I hope that my friends and family will know well enough that I have no issue with [tag]religion[/tag] per se.
However, it cannot be used as part of any reasoning – there are too many assumptions that have to be made and, in my eyes, the argument is null and void.
Are there times when religious texts can be quoted as truly meaningful reason?
