Ethics and Religious Virtue

The news media are not talking about the obvious dichotomy that exposes the folly in the Bush administration’s policies. So, upon my return to South Florida, I am!

Constantly reading that stem cell research is an ethical as well as a political issue, and that Mr. Bush vetoed stem cell research because of his religious and ethical convictions, I am totally mystified!* Our evangelical president will not kill a single embryonic cell, but he will authorize the deaths of thousands of American service personnel and tens of thousands of Iraqis in a foreign invasion he undertook for personal reasons that has since destabilized the entire Middle-east. There is no logic, no religious or ethical virtue to that dichotomy.

I have dealt with this and related ethical and Christian religious issues in a more logical and thorough manner in the past. See my entries for April 26, 2007, February 24, 2007, and February 20, 2007.
