Ethical Questions

Extracts from this document...


Situation 1: Charity "We shouldn't need events like Comic Relief to make us give to charity." A Christian: Christians believe in following Christ's teaching and actions and since Christ taught and acted upon the giving of charity they would be with the giving of charity. They would think that we shouldn't need these events to raise money but since everyone is not of that mind they would still see it as a good way to raise charitable donations which could be put to Christian purposes. "The Lord has no favourites at the poor man's expense, but listens to his prayer when he is wronged" (Eccus 35:13). A Buddhist: A Buddhist would, I think see events like Comic Relief as a good way to raise money and a good way to gain and distribute good Karma leading to a better life after reincarnation. They would think the nature of the event would not particularly matter if it is for a good cause.

He, I think would say regardless of our wills and desire we should fully commit to something that we, as a country, have committed to. A Utilitarian: A Utilitarian would very much sympathise with the government for they are stretching the budget to get the best for all or the greatest good for the greatest number they would see what was trying to be done for the country but I think they would partially agree in putting funding more in to the army but would see that there would just have to be cutting elsewhere Me: I think that such controversial subject's of war that have been so argued and debated should be fully funded and backed although that if we were to fund there would be downsides such as cutting elsewhere or higher taxes that would be unbelievably attacked and criticises.
