American Moral Relativism Meets African Traditional Morality

Anyone who hails from Africa proper knows how conservative Africans are. Most authentic Africans would find the left-liberalism and moral relativism of Americans repugnant.

Read on.

Patient Zero, the man who brought Ebola to the US, is Thomas Eric Duncan. According to Binyah Kesselly, board chairman of the Liberia Airport Authority, Duncan lied on a Liberian health screening questionnaire.

Duncan answered “no” to questions about whether he had cared for a patient with the deadly virus and whether he had touched the body of someone who died in an area affected by the disease.

Speaking to CNN’s Jake Tapper, the Liberian Ambassador to U.S, Jeremiah Sulunteh, condemned “this kind of behavior” (deception), and said that the Liberian government intended to take legal action against the man.

“Our hearts are broken to witness this reckless behavior on the part of Duncan,” lamented the Liberian ambassador. “Duncan has violated Liberian public-health law and this is punishable. He has done something shameful. We are truly sorry and apologize to the US, a country that has been there for Liberia all the way.”

Very decent sentiments you say.

Tapper, however, looked on aghast, replying with a non sequitur: How can Liberia prosecute a victim of the disease who is suffering so?

Of course, the one issue has nothing to do with the other: If a man knowingly concealed that he might have been weaponized with Ebola—he has a moral culpability to other human beings.

Tapper, however, has seldom encountered such moral certitude of this kind among folks in the homeland. He knows only the moral relativism that pervades America.
