ON SOME SUBJECTS, A DICTIONARY barely touches the surface. Morals, my dictionary says, are a person’s standards of behavior, while ethics are said to be moral principles that govern behavior. Sounds kind of the same, but in common usage they have come to be distinguishable. Neither have any particular relationship with religion. Some of the most ethical and moral people I’ve met are non-religious, and reading about religious persons getting caught committing immoral acts is nothing new. Ethics has taken on a broad implication of a person who is strictly honorable with regard to the truth and financial matters. An ethical person neither lies nor cheats. Having high morals, on the other hand, implies that one is not guilty of sexual laxity and does not condone it in others. The problem comes in, of course, with respect to what is sexually acceptable behavior. A restricted perspective may not be very permissive, while a free thinker might believe that, if it’s physically possible, there’s nothing wrong with it. Perhaps H. L. Mencken said it best: “Immorality is the morality of those who are having a better time.”
