I partially agree with your comment. I would agree that we can't agree on anything regarding morals. I disagree with your reason why. I think it has to do with the way liberals and conservatives form moral judgments. According to Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist, there are five cross-culturally universal domains of moral intuition. Conservatives tend to use all five, while liberals, being skeptical of their feeling of three domains, only use two.

I think you would need to define sin.
Thanks, I wish I could take credit for it. I actually just read about it in the book Lost in the Middle? Claiming an Inclusive Faith for Christians Who Are Both Liberal and Evangelical. Pretty much the first half of the book covers the conflict between conservatives and liberals and why moderates feel lost in the middle.
