TOPIC

You try to live strictly by the moral rules contained in your religion’s moral code. The two most important
rules are
“Be merciful” (don’t give people what they deserve) and “Be just” (give people exactly what they
deserve). Now suppose a man is arrested for stealing food from your house, and the police leave it up to
you whether he should be prosecuted for his crime or set free. Should you be merciful and set him free, or
be just and make sure he is appropriately punished? How do you resolve this conflict of rules? Can your
moral code resolve it? To what moral principles or theories do you appeal?
