If you were legally entitled to something, but it was morally wrong to receive it, regardless of the subject matter, would you take it?

 

Well try as I might I can't make a decision to enable me to vote in the poll when it says 'regardless of the subject matter'.

 

Some things I might... or others I might not and so I have no idea :oops: What sort or type of things do you mean SueD :oops:

 

Actually as I have not been able to vote does that mean that I have just answered the poll as my subconcious and moral values are obviously questioning it :D

the way i look at it is :?

 

i would take it if i was legally entitled to it even if it was "morally wrong". i would then do the moral thing . if it was money or property that morally belonged to somebody else then i would try to come to an agreement whereby they could benefit from it if possible.

hence the church is trying to play catch up with a changing morality - rather than remaining a static beacon, a point of reference in a world without a moral compass. :shock:

 

Very good observer, and how true. Taken you a long time to point it out though.

 

I think maybe they have been trying to put their own house in order first. :wink:
