    Western Easter is much easier to figure out - it's always the first Sunday after the first full moon after the Spring Equinox, as long as that's after March 21, unless the first full moon is not an ecclesiastical full moon.....

    Or, better yet - It's the first Sunday after Palm Sunday!

    Much easier to remember ... and of course, that would make Ash Wednesday 39 days before Palm Sunday, and Pentecost 57 days after Palm Sunday ... I'll keep Palm Sundae as a reference point.

    Palm Sundae sounds like a Ben & Jerry's flavor.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd

    I wonder which think tank/advocacy group test marketed that phrase and circulated it to be regurgitated by liberal politicians and the MSM

    By whose definition would that be?
    But you avoided the question: if human society and reason can get it wrong with regards to morality, then what basis do you use to determine when we get it right? How do you know, for example, that we weren't right about homosexuality before, and we've gotten it wrong now?
    We evolve, we learn. Well, some of us do!

    No, it’s a moral objection in that children can never be in a position to provide informed consent; because they may be coerced by an unscrupulous adult to “consenting” without understanding what this means.

    What if psychologists faced with social pressure suddenly "discover" that they can consent, and the laws are changed accordingly? Well then, pedophilia would be considered "normal".
    See above.

    Heck, we're already part way there with organizations like the American Psychiatric Association downgrading pedophilia from a disorder to merely an "atypical sexual interest" with liberals like you and JimL applauding and depending this. Just be careful where you step, because that slope is slippery as hell.
    So, what do you suggest we do, shoot them?

    Neither can you “complain about anything being wrong or immoral”. Your so-called objective morals of “God" were simply the subjective moral values of the day written by men and ascribed to their tribal deity to enforce compliance. Even then, they have been interpreted and adapted to conform to current moral values, e.g. the role of women in society.
