    Zow, when you type in all-caps, two things happen:

    **it's harder to read, and
    **it's the online equivalent to SHOUTING.

    Please just type in regular mode, not with the Caps Lock feature turned on. Thanks.

    Now ... if you'll post an actual question, someone here will try to help. Keep in mind, though, that no one here will do your assignment for you.

    =)

    An absolute approach insists that every deed must follow a certain authority, be it religious or custom. A relative approach assumes that there are grey areas and tends to be more pragmatic.

    Consider the abortion question. The absolute approach states that any abortion is morally wrong, even in cases of rape or incest. The relative approach states that although no abortion is good, sometimes it's necessary.

    Here is a cultural absolutism I dealt with in Mississippi.

    Some girls of a particular church had to wear dresses on all occasions, and in PE, this caused problems. This is cultural absolutism.
    Taking the cultural relativism, girls would have to wear dresses in schools, but at PE, they can wear shorts and shirts.
