Michael Werner.

Are the moral imperatives guiding society objective or subjective? The Preamble to the Declaration of Independence says that we are endowed with certain unalienable rights, including a right to life. The King James Version of the Sixth Commandment says “Thou shalt not kill.” In our UU Principles we covenant to affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Do we apply these moral imperatives consistently when we consider waging war, physician-assisted suicide, the death penalty, and abortion rights? In this service, Michael will share his quest for an objective ethical response to the taking of human life.
