Lately, I have been worrying a lot about the conscience. There are a lot of lawsuits and legal discussion in the United States right now, on the topic of conscience rights. What worries me are two types of people.
First, there are people who say that the conscience is irrelevant or non-existent. These people are in favor of eliminating all conscience rights. Generally, these people tend to do evil things, and I suspect they want to eliminate all forms of conscience, because their own consciences condemn them.
On the other hand, there are people who say that the conscience is of extreme importance. These people are in favor of allowing all conscience rights. This is good, because humans can direct themselves towards goodness, only in freedom. However, I've noticed these people often include evil things, on the list of rights the conscience allows. This implies that they are not using the conscience correctly, but they are using it as an excuse to justify evil actions.
I wonder which of these two groups is more dangerous.
