As the cornerstone of today’s pro-same-sex-marriage rhetoric, Western Liberalism is often placed in opposition to Christianity and Confucianism.

This article aims to remind readers that rights ought to be balanced with morality, and that traditional values can still serve our present age, even in the face of change.
