three fold morality

14 July 2008

Katy Perry, an American pop singer, has a new hit song.
Lyric except:

I kissed a girl and I liked it
I kissed a girl just to try it
It felt so wrong, it felt so right
I kissed a girl and I liked it

Katy explains and wrestles with:
Her intentions
– I got so brave
– never the way I planned
– not what I’m used to

Her curiosity
– caught my attention
– my experimental game
– want to try you

Her desires
– hard to resist
– so kissable
– I liked it

Her conscience
– felt so wrong
– felt so right
– head gets so confused

Her culture
– hope my boyfriend don’t mind it
– don’t mean I’m in love

Katy concludes:
– no big deal
– it’s innocent

Katy banks on:
1 – Desires being right
2 – Conscience being wrong
3 – Culture being accepting

My question is:
How can this three fold test bring any real confidence in deciding morality?
