UBF and cultural relativism

(Related: 1, 2, 3)

This was part of a Feb. 2006 post from elsewhere:

UBF, in using the "it's just a cultural difference" argument, tries to leverage the post-modernish notion that "cultural elements" are somehow beyond good and evil, exempt from any judgment based on any moral standards.

Actually, it's not a post-modernish notion. It's just good old-fashioned cultural relativism. So, UBF, this supposedly Christian organization has continually appealed to cultural relativism to try to defend its practices for the last 30 years or so.
