Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can't believe what you people are talking...
If there are more of you with this opinion I will truly leave this place...I assume you will cheer...

That would be a pity, I've enjoyed your diaries.

Values differ. One test here

The scale is a measure of your reliance on and endorsement of five psychological foundations of morality that seem to be found across cultures. Each of the two parts of the scale contained three questions related to each foundation: 1) harm/care, 2) fairness/reciprocity (including issues of rights), 3) ingroup/loyalty, 4) authority/respect, and 5) purity/sanctity.

The idea behind the scale is that human morality is the result of biological and cultural evolutionary processes that made human beings very sensitive to many different (and often competing) issues. Some of these issues are about treating other individuals well (the first two foundations - harm and fairness). Other issues are about how to be a good member of a group or supporter of social order and tradition (the last three foundations).
[...] The big difference between liberals and conservatives seems to be that conservatives score slightly higher on the ingroup/loyalty foundation, and much higher on the authority/respect and purity/sanctity foundations.

This issue seems to be #5 "purity". I suspect non-religious, left-of-center people will generally rate this measure lower than others.

Absolutely not case of "purity" in my case.

No, I would deplore that.
