I want to toss these out to my fellow religious and philosophical thinkers in here.
From Batman Begins
Batman tells Raus Al Gol his former teacher
"I am not going to kill you, but I sure don't have to save you" as Raus plunged to his firey death.
Question: Is there a moral difference between killing or murdering someone, and knowing that they are about to be killed or murdered, and you have the power to 'save them' and you don't?
From that new show on BET S.O.B. last night
The fake priest ask the woman, "are you celibate" she says, "I don't practice celibacy", then later she criticized the priest for doing behavior that she does, but doesn't believe he should do because he is a priest.
Question: Is it moral hypocrisy to hold someone to a standard of moral behavior that you yourself do not hold yourself to? IE is it wrong to criticize a pastor for adultery or fornication, if you are doing the same thing?
Just some thoughts...
