Ethical Musings

Ethical Musings, as the masthead indicates, exists to promote living an abundant, flourishing life:
The flourishing life, thus understood, was called shalom by the Hebrew writers of the Old Testament, “shalom” being translated with the Greek eirenÄ“ in the Septuagint; the New Testament writers followed in the steps of the Septuagint translators. (Nicholas Wolterstorff, Justice: Rights and Wrongs, p. 205)

Gratifyingly, Ethical Musings' readership continues to grow. If you know someone whom you think would enjoy reading Ethical Musings, please encourage them to subscribe via email, RSS feed, or Networked Blogs. I'm also happy to have other sites post a link to the Ethical Musings blog.

Suggestions for topics and comments are always most welcome.

Ethical Musings is a marketplace for ideas and not commerce. Consequently, I've declined several solicitations to place ads on the blog page.

You wrote: "Scientist and bishop, the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori decries the climate change that science shows humans have caused; she proclaims that responding is a Christian moral imperative because climate change harms God's earth, the poor, and the most vulnerable." I am wondering if you really mean "decries" human responsibility since Schori then "proclaims" a moral imperative to act. Those verbs seem to be at odds. Otherwise, I am in agreement with your post.

To ensure clarity, the PB denounces (or decries)the climate change that humans have caused; she supports the science that has identified the change and its cause.
