On its face with no more supporting context; sometimes, maybe - maybe not.

Not sure how to take this, what is being used as the yardstick for right and wrong, what if the minority is pedophilia then what, should the majority except it?

    a minority of folks decided not to marry, now few marry
    a minority of folks had kids without parents, now look at all the single moms with kids (very hard on boys I might add, for a woman can never show a boy how to be a man).
    a minority can throw morality, ethic, integrity out the window, and the rest soon believe that is normal as long is it provides them with some goodie that belonged to we see in today's political system.

    When you flip the coin, we are the minority, those under moral constraint. With the law written in our hearts. Now the challenge is to us, as a minority. How forcible are right words !
    God be with you !
