Faith vs Moral vs Law
4 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode sets the stage on the conflict between the "authority" or the priority of faith, moral and law in the matter of the knowledge and admission of a murder.

Individual, religious and legal interests are concurrently valid on the issue, but which one takes precedence over the other. It is all too easy to answer this if one takes a position based on his persona, but it is more difficult when we must consider these codes of conduct as inherently and equally just and reasonable.

The issue is not which one to seek the truth since all 3 know it. The issue is which one must ultimately be taken to deal with the most serious of consequences of human behaviour. What drives such a decision: loss, authority, idea, hope, lie, interest, punishment or salvation?
