30-Day Religious Meme — Day 23 ~ Ethics

This is a subject near and dear to my heart. There are a lot of people who confuse ethics with morality. And these same people are generally the ones who accuse others of having no morals because that person are of a different religious persuasion than them. Often what is moral in one religion is immoral in another. For example, Hindus will not eat beef while Muslims will. Ethics transcend religion because of this. In Hellenismos, we have strong ethical guidelines in the Delphic Maxims.

In my prior series on the Maxims I started to explore these guidelines with an eye to opening up the discussion of them in a larger world but the fact remains that they can be used in any religious community and there will not be people who say they are against their beliefs. This is where the ethical underpinning of Hellenismos becomes seen in a larger way.
