Dear Ethical Philosophers
Tomorrow, Sunday the 14th at 10:30 at the Purist Cafe
we will examine and ponder people we call “saints.” At least “saint” in the sense that they are held out by others as being very, very, very moral, whatever that means.
Two people, Mother Teresa and Gandhi will be examined. Although very different in religion, beliefs, actions and purposes, somehow millions revere them as being very, very, very moral.
Therefore we will look at NOT WHAT OTHERS SAY THEY DID and BELIEVED…but rather
WHAT THEY ACTUALLY DID and BELIEVED.
There are vast differences and many similarities, maybe the real questions are not about them, but about us. What is it about us that makes us want to create such beliefs about certain people?
The reading is posted as 1-Saints Teresa and Gandhi.doc
of what is saintly, good, moral, virtuous, etc?
There may be some bridge complication, so be aware of the following info provided by Saint David of Heim.
The bridges open westbound all day are Broadway, Steel, Hawthorne, Marquam. The east bound closures on these bridges end 10:30-11:00 depending on the bridge. So the impact should be minimal.
