There seems to be a segment here equating "traditional values" with one religion, Christianity, which apparently some of you see as the only "good" values and others see as outdated or which they simply don't like. "Traditional" values and societies predate Christianity by thousands of years. Both groups are proving my point- we need to think about personal values and standards, not personal opinions or prejudices for or against a particular religion. I don't see anything about the original question that refers to Christianity, or Islam, or Vedanta, or any religious ideology. Why does one have to have a specific "god" (or none) to have personal standards of behavior?
For instance, the "thou shall not kill, commit adultery, etc." list. Well, if you think about it, stealing, killing, scewing around with your neighbor's significant others, etc. are all things that will almost certainly cause you and those around you serious problems. The point is that doing things that are practically guaranteed to cause you trouble is not the smartest thing to do. Abstaining from those particular type of things shows respect for yourself and your fellow humans, and minimizes problems in your life. Maybe we should say "positive and negative" instead of "right and wrong", but the terminology does not change the cause and effect relationship.
As far as hypocracy goes, it doesn't seem to matter what religion (or none at all) which people espouse. I'm sure we could find a list of rabbis or imams or gurus or atheists just as long if we looked around- it's human nature to want what we want, regardless of the consequences. One of the most common "traditional" values throughout history in all cultures has been self-discipline, and hypocracy has been just as common throughout history as a personal failure. Again, personal behavior and respect for oneself and those around is what "values" are about. Because no one defined "traditional values" to start with, this discussion has been mostly about nothing but personal opinions and prejudices, and therefore meaningless.
