Make sure your punishment fits the crime. The proper role of ethical reasoning is to highlight acts of two kinds: Finally, Weinstein says, fairness has to do with a willingness to turn an unjust situation into a just one. You find as you look around the world that every single bit of progress in humane feeling, every improvement in the criminal law, every step toward the diminution of war, every step toward better treatment of the colored races, or every mitigation of slavery, every moral progress that there has been in the world, has been consistently opposed by the organized churches of the world.
Polytheistic religious traditions tend to be less absolute. And Weinstein says they should extend beyond the walls of the sanctuary and should be taught and expected in homes and classrooms as well. A study by Gregory S. Hinman points to the importance of teachers respecting students.
For example, Simon Blackburn states that "apologists for Hinduism defend or explain away its involvement with the caste system, and apologists for Islam defend or explain away its harsh penal code or its attitude to women and infidels".
Larry Hinman, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Values Institute at the University of San Diego, explains that ethics in a secular context has to do with what people have in common in terms of humanity.
Peer ratings can be biased by stereotypes, and indications of a persons group affiliation are sufficient to bias reporting. Weinstein says children are looking even at the conduct of athletes, for example.
Religious people were less inclined when it came to seeing how much compassion motivated participants to be charitable in other ways, such as in giving money or food to a homeless person and to non-believers. The egoistically motivated prosociality may also affect self-reports, resulting in biased results.
If a teacher is verbally abusive, Weinstein says, the ethical teacher will stick his neck out and get involved. The Hindu beliefs that the cow is a sacred animal and that it is wicked for widows to remarry cause quite needless suffering.
Some works indicate that some societies with lower religiosity have lower crime rates—especially violent crime, compared to some societies with higher religiosity. And if everyone were to cheat, we would be back to square one because no one gets an advantage.
Hinman explains that the risk factors go up dramatically for these students, and kindness not cruelty is a necessity. Even for some religious people the two are different and separable; they may hold that religion should be moral and morality should be, but they agree that they may not be.
The Catholic condemnation of birth control, if it could prevail, would make the mitigation of poverty and the abolition of war impossible.
Do No Harm Try not to hurt people. Be fair Be loving These values are defined differently in different parts of the world, but they are cross-cultural and expected among all groups of people. One of the foundational values for that, Hinman says, is respect—respecting one another and our differences.
Fairness also has to do with how we distribute scarce resources. Weinstein recalls his 5th grade teacher telling his class that if they did drugs, he would haunt them for the rest of their lives.
In the latter case, a study by the Barna Group found that some denominations have a significantly higher divorce rate than those in non-religious demographic groups atheists and agnostics.LAW, ETHICS, AND RELIGION IN THE PUBLIC SQUARE: PRINCIPLES OF RESTRAINT AND WITHDRAWAL SAMUEL J.
