Moral behaviour

What is Ethical Behavior?

An ethical behavior is the application of moral principles in a given situation.
It means to behave according to the moral standards set by the society which we live in.

Het ethisch gedrag van een mens moet doeltreffend gebaseerd zijn op sympathie, opvoeding en sociale banden en behoeften; een religieuze basis is niet nodig.
De mens zou er inderdaad slecht aan toe zijn indien hij zich zou moeten laten weerhouden door vrees voor straf en hoop op beloning na de dood.

Ethical behavior refers to conduct that is in alignment with principles and values that are considered morally right or acceptable. The key points of ethical behavior include:

  1. Integrity: Ethical behavior involves honesty, truthfulness, and consistency in one’s actions and words. It means being sincere, reliable, and trustworthy in all interactions.

  2. Respect: Ethical behavior requires treating others with dignity, fairness, and consideration. It involves valuing diversity, embracing inclusivity, and avoiding discrimination or prejudice.

  3. Responsibility: Ethical behavior entails being accountable for one’s actions and their consequences. It means fulfilling one’s duties and obligations, and taking ownership of one’s decisions and their impact on others and the environment.

  4. Transparency: Ethical behavior involves being open, candid, and transparent in communication and actions. It means being honest about intentions, disclosing relevant information, and avoiding hidden agendas or conflicts of interest.

  5. Justice: Ethical behavior requires being fair, impartial, and just in decision-making and actions. It involves treating all individuals equitably, without favoritism or bias, and upholding fairness in distributing resources and opportunities.

  6. Caring: Ethical behavior involves showing empathy, compassion, and concern for the well-being of others. It means considering the needs and interests of others and taking steps to help or support them when possible.

  7. Compliance: Ethical behavior entails adhering to laws, regulations, policies, and professional codes of conduct. It means acting in accordance with legal and ethical standards, and avoiding unethical or illegal behavior.

  8. Reflection: Ethical behavior requires engaging in self-reflection, self-awareness, and critical thinking. It involves examining one’s beliefs, values, and biases, and reflecting on the ethical implications of one’s actions.

  9. Ethical leadership: Ethical behavior includes leading by example, inspiring and guiding others to act ethically. It means demonstrating integrity, fairness, and ethical decision-making in leadership roles, and promoting an ethical culture in organizations.

  10. Continuous improvement: Ethical behavior involves a commitment to continuous learning and improvement. It means being open to feedback, willing to reflect and revise one’s actions, and continuously striving to improve one’s ethical conduct.

These are some of the key points of ethical behavior, which collectively promote a culture of integrity, accountability, respect, and fairness in personal, professional, and organizational settings.

1 Mysteries of the Church: The Church and WWII

Back to menu

4 feb. 2013

Until the Vatican began releasing secret documents in 2003, there was a shroud of mystery surrounding the covert efforts to battle the Nazi’s and the nightmare of the Holocaust. Today, we examine the precarious position the Vatican found it self in as an independent city state, and the little known efforts of the Catholic Church during World War II.

This video only tells one part of the story. It fails to discuss those priests who actively supported the Nazis such as Bishop Hudal who helped Eichmann escape to South America. It fails to discuss those priests in, among other places, Croatia and Slovakia who actively supported the fascist governments in the killings of Jews and Serbs. There were Franciscan friars who assisted in the killing of people in concentration camps in Croatia. So the Church’s record in WW2 is a mixed one. While many members of the Church did oppose the Nazis there was a minority who actively supported them.

Good politics and good ethics rarely go hand in hand. The first and primary concern of a organization is the survival of the organization everything they purport to stand for be damned. Nothing new about playing both sides of the aisle. What was the church protecting by hiding child molesters for how long… centuries?
Maxi Vane Serafin
Some people here wants to define the whole church based on the evil actions of the few. So should we ignore the good deeds just because there were some who sided with the Nazis? Remember that on other countries in Europe, the resistance took shelter in the church where they were taken care of. How about you as a person? If there was one time you stole something because you need it, do you want to be defined as a thief your whole life? Don’t study history with a subjective mind.

It is important to remember that Judas was filled with the devil, and was alongside Jesus. Every church will have a minority of actors that helps evil in the deepest way but we must focus on the righteous, not the evil.

6 mei 2022

This documentary features exclusive interviews with Vatican experts and journalists who, for the first time, tell the whole story of Pope Francis’s ascent to the papacy. The program explores criticism of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s silence on the “disappeared” and abductions during Argentina’s “dirty war”, but also reveals how he successfully navigated Argentina’s dark past to become the first Latin American pope.

An amusing interpretation of non-substantial events.
I have come the realization, NOT one channel promotes the TRUTH. What they do promote: the Truth wrapped with lies as I like to call them, Bacon wrapped Scriptures or lies sprinkled with truth. I have thought of a name for the second one. What did CHRIST teach? A little leaven, leavens the whole lump. Or a little false teaching, makes the whole teaching false. Thus I can not waste and hour of my time trying to figure out which one is it in the video. I go straight to GODS Living word of TRUTH for All wisdom, Knowledge and understanding.

C M Elmore
Jesus the Splendor, also just called Jesus, is a Fragment of the Primordial God known as the Father of Greatness, being the Manichaeism equivalent of Christian Jesus. Like the Yeshua of the Christian religion, he is a kind, honest and very gentle deity. In Manichaeism, Jesus is considered one of the four prophets of this religion, along with Zoroaster, Gautama Buddha, and Mani. He is also a “guiding deity” who greets the light bodies of the righteous upon their deliverance. Like the Christian Jesus, he lived from 0 to 33 CE, being worshiped as the Son of God, and the Savior who rose from the dead. The religion of Manichaeism is a Gnostic religion, so unlike the Christian religion where the Messiah is the incarnation of God the Son, in Manichaeism there is a distinction between the physical and historical Jesus and the spiritual Jesus, with the human Yeshua being an aspect of the spiritual Christos. Like his Gnostic counterpart, it is unknown whether this “version” of Jesus has any direct connection to Jesus Prime. It can be said that their relationship is the same as the avatars of God such as Allah, Yahweh and Elohim, each being an incarnation of the Creator.

In the book of Revelation (Apocalypse) Chapter 17 there are many descriptions of a woman that’s riding on a beast, and she is described as “THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH”. To begin with, this woman is called “MYSTERY’ Babylon. (Revelation 17 VERSE 5) The Catholic church ADMITS that it is a ‘Mystery Religion”, due to the supposed Mystery of transubstantiation. She has also continued all of the other MYSTERIES of ancient Babylon including celibacy, oral confessions & idol worship. She is also defined as a “MOTHER”, a mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth. No other institution but the Catholic Church has ever referred to itself as “MOTHER” Who has not heard priests, bishops, Cardinals and popes all use the term “Our holy “MOTHER’ the Church”? What about the Harlots? Throughout the centuries, the priestly vow of celibacy caused a need for prostitutes (harlots) like never before and the church has made a fortune taxing the houses of prostitution in Rome and throughout the Papal States. What about her abominations? Just a few of these include the Crusades, Inquisitions and concordats that the Vatican signed with three dictators – Franco, Mussolini and Hitler, not to mention the thousands of sodomite and pedophile Roman Catholic priests stationed all over the world. Need any more be said about abominations? This woman is described as having “A Golden Cup in Her Hand” (VERSE 4). The gold communion cup that the priest uses during mass is the symbol of the church, and you can see this “GOLDEN CUP” held high in the air by every priest, bishop & pope. According to Canon Law (church rules), this cup MUST either be pure gold, or solid silver and plated with gold. This woman has committed fornication [or made deals] with the kings of the earth (VERSE 2). The Roman Catholic Church historically has made deals and signed concordats with world leaders since the time of Pepin in the 8th Century (and before), through his son Charlemagne, with all of the Holy Roman Emperors, Henry VIII, Bloody Mary, etc. Moreover, these “deals” have continued all the way down through Reagan, Gorbachev, Elizabeth II, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump & Biden. I already mentioned Hitler and some of the other dictators that this “WOMAN” made deals with. According to VERSE 18, she also reigneth or RULES over the kings of the earth. The RC Church has always claimed the power to depose Kings and Emperors and she has done this many times in the past, and through the Jesuits and others the church has often had religious and world leaders murdered. The woman is “DRUNK” with the blood of the saints and with the martyrs of Jesus (VERSE 6). History records the millions of true Christians & Jews that were slaughtered during the Roman, Medieval and Spanish inquisitions? VERSE 4 also notes that her colors are described as purple and scarlet. These are the official colors of the Roman Catholic Church. All of the cardinals dress in purple and are even called “the Purpled Ones”, and all of the Bishop’s vestments are scarlet RED. VERSE 18 tells us that the woman is “A CITY” (VERSE 18), and that it is located on seven mountains or hills (VERSE 9) Rome is located on seven NAMED mountains and the city of Seven Hills is as descriptive a name for Rome as the Windy City is for Chicago! Even the Roman Catholic Encyclopedia refers to Rome as the city of Seven Hills. And in Rev 17 & 18, it says CITY over and over again! Even in Revelation Chapter 14 It reads: Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great CITY because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornications. There can be no doubt from all of these identifying characteristics just one chapter that the woman identified is Rome & the Roman Catholic Church. There are even more identifying characteristics. that can ALL be found in the following chapters of the book of Revelation. Now it would take a whole lot of faith to believe that ALL of these identifying characteristics are just a coincidence. All of the reformers knew this, and they all wrote about it! Just as each of the reformers could see the popes as Anti-Christs! Please read and STUDY the book of Revelation for yourself. And please don’t take my word for it. I might lie to you. Just read & study it for yourself! The bible reads: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. (2 Tim. 2:15).

4 Reckoning with History: Pope Pius XII and the Holocaust

Het Vaticaan en het Derde Rijk: een onheilige alliantie

Back to menu


8 jun 2023

Midden in de Tweede Wereldoorlog keken katholieken naar de paus om hen te leiden. Hitler was al in het geheim begonnen met het lanceren van zijn plan om de Joden in Europa uit te roeien. In het geheim, dat wil zeggen, voor de meesten, behalve voor paus Pius XII. De paus zweeg terwijl de rest van de wereld wachtte op een groots gebaar of toespraak waarin Hitlers wreedheden werden veroordeeld.
Hij koos ervoor om te zwijgen over de misdaden van de nazi’s in heel Europa, misdaden die zelfs onder de eigen ramen van de paus plaatsvonden, zoals de liquidatie van het joodse getto in Rome in 1943, waarop de paus geen officiële reactie gaf.
Op het eerste gezicht staan nazisme en katholicisme lijnrecht tegenover elkaar. Het Vaticaan lijkt zelfs een instelling die alle verdenking te boven gaat. De kerk zal echter, op haar beurt geconfronteerd met de opkomst van het nazisme, de Tweede Wereldoorlog en de uitroeiing van de joden, een dubbelzinnige – soms onheilige – rol spelen. Verschillende mannen van de kerk, priesters en bisschoppen, die fervente bewonderaars van Hitler waren, vielen zelfs in medeplichtigheid…

Prince Andrew has been served with the legal papers for a lawsuit in which he is accused of sexual abuse, according to a court document.

Lawyers representing Virginia Giuffre – who is suing the Duke of York – say in the document that the civil lawsuit was handed to a Metropolitan Police officer on duty at the main gates of The Royal Lodge, Windsor Great Park, on 27 August.

The prince has always categorically denied any sexual contact or relationship with Ms Giuffre.

8 Determining Moral Behavior

Back to menu

21 dec. 2018

Our principles of right and wrong form a framework for the way we live our lives. But where do these principles come from? Ethical systems provide the answer to the question of why something is wrong or right.

An ethical system is a structured set of principles that defines what is moral. Ethics of virtue is the ethical system that bases ethics largely upon character and possession of virtues.

One difficulty with the ethics of virtue is in judging the primacy of moral virtues. The natural law ethical system holds that there is a universal set of rights and wrongs that is like many religious beliefs, but without reference to a specific supernatural figure.

Honesty and fair dealings are always prioritized over other values. A deontological ethical system is one that is concerned solely with the inherent nature of the act being judged.

The core elements of any deontological or duty-based ethical system are the importance placed on intention, and the use of a predetermined set of principles to judge morality rather than an evaluation of the consequences of an act. A teleological ethical system judges the consequences of an act.

The difference between ethical formalism and rule utilitarianism is that the actions themselves are judged right or wrong depending on the motives behind them under ethical formalism, whereas utilitarianism looks to the long-term consequences of the prescribed rules to determine their morality. Ethics of care is the ethical system that defines good as meeting the needs of others and preserving and enriching relationships.

Peacemaking justice is an ancient approach to justice that includes the concepts of compassion and care, connectedness, and mindfulness. To summarize, the ethics-of-care approach identifies the needs of all individuals in any ethical situation and attempts to maximize them. It is different from utilitarianism, however, in that one person cannot be sacrificed for others. Also, there is an attempt to resolve situations through human relationships and a sense that decisions should come from compassion rather than attention to rights or duties.

Egoism is the ethical system that defines the pursuit of self-interest as a moral good. But if it is true that humans are naturally selfish and self-serving, one can also point to examples that indicate that humans are also altruistic and self-sacrificing. One thing seems clear: when individuals are caught doing illegal acts, or acts that violate their professional codes of ethics, or acts that harm others, it is usually only egoism that can justify their behavior.

The imperative principle directs a decision maker to act according to a specific, unbending rule. The utilitarian principle determines the ethics of conduct by the good or bad consequences of the action.

The generalization principle is based on this question: “What would happen if all similar persons acted this way under similar circumstances?” Understanding how ethical decisions are made is critical to law enforcement professionals.

Ethical relativism describes the position that what is good or bad changes depending on the individual or group, and that there are no moral absolutes. Absolutism, as previously discussed, is the position that, if something is wrong, it is always wrong.

Universalism is a similar concept in that it is the position that what is considered wrong is wrong for all people for all time and if one wants to perform a certain act, one would have to agree that anyone else should be able to do it as well. Situational ethics is the philosophical position that although there are a few universal truths, different situations call for different responses; therefore, some action can be right or wrong depending on situational factors.

Moral pluralism is the concept that there are fundamental truths that may dictate different definitions of what is moral in different situations. Interestingly, situational ethics seems to be entirely consistent with the ethics of care, especially when one contrasts this ethical system with a rule-based, absolutist system. In the ethics of care, you will recall, each individual is considered in the equation of what would be the “good.”

9 Ethical Misconduct in the Courts

Back to menu

21 dec. 2018

The major complaint about defense attorneys is that they do not communicate regularly with clients. Complaints received by bar associations generally involve clients who believe that they are not getting what they paid for, in that attorneys don’t return their calls, don’t keep them informed about what is being done on their case, and don’t seem to be putting any effort in the case after they have been paid.

Cases identified by the Innocence Project or by the Exoneration Registry include many examples of criminal defense attorneys not bringing forward evidence or other exculpatory evidence. Cases also include those where defense attorneys did not challenge the testimony of jailhouse informants, or, in other ways, provided such a poor defense that convictions occurred, even with little or no evidence against innocent defendants.

When prosecutors forget that their mission is to protect due process, not merely win the case, misconduct can occur.
The types of misconduct range from minor lapses of ethical rules to commission of criminal acts. Prosecutors may bolster a witness’s credentials or allow him or her to make gratuitous and unsupported claims on the witness stand, such as to state “unequivocally” that the fingerprint, hair, or lip print was the defendant’s.

Judicial canons require judges to avoid even the appearance of bias or impropriety. Misconduct is alleged when judges do not recuse themselves and/or act in ways that give preferential treatment to individuals or groups.

Most judges are ethical and take great care to live up to the obligations of their role. However, as with the other criminal justice professionals, sometimes there are systemic biases and subtle ways in which the principles of justice and due process are subverted.

The factors that seem to be correlated with wrongful convictions clearly indicate that legal professionals must take responsibility for reducing the possibility of such gross miscarriages of justice. Individuals may be affected by confirmatory bias in that they truly cannot see the exculpatory nature of the evidence because they believe so strongly that the defendant is guilty.

The reality is that the law is administered by humans with human failings and that errors and misconduct result in innocent people being convicted, incarcerated, and sometimes executed. State judicial commissions rarely sanction judges, and voters tend to be oblivious to the reputation of judges, often voting along strict party lines, thus “bad” judges keep getting reelected.

A range of potential responses to prosecutorial misconduct have been offered or implemented. Many of these have weaknesses that prevent their effectiveness. Individuals on the side of defending the wrongfully convicted may be subject to confirmation bias as well and have their own ethical blinders on regarding what is legal and ethical when they believe that they are advocating for an innocent person in prison.

Far from being static, the implementation of law reflects political realities, in direct contrast to the ideal of judicial independence that is the cornerstone of our system of government. Critics of judicial activism point out that just because judicial activists have been promoters of civil liberties and socially progressive causes, such as integration and free speech, there is no absolute necessity that activism would always champion such individual rights.

So my ex who is a narcissist wanted revenge he tried to kill me I literally had to dial 911 when he was on top of me got a year faced 30 used a knife as a deadly weapon. He got out I was stupid wanted closure he messaged me he wanted to apologize. Long story short he tried to say he was going to kill himself when I broke up with him by drinking 128 ounces of beer and 4 ativans. SO he left the door open I couldn’t open it on my own because it stuck, and I am disabled with my leg I walk with a cane he tried to say I attacked him. The judge said in his pre-liminary hearing, I only had a public defender at the time after he added to his story said I should have brought a baseball bat, that that sounded like home invasion in the 1st degree, but the prosecutor was going for the 3rd degree even though he. Lied throughout everything and later tried to blackmail me but I didn’t Wouldn’t that be judicial impropriety the judge?
