Do Christians have to be honest and are they more honest than others? Do you feel that you are working in the right way, having the right ethics about social and work attitude,?
Are you concerned how you treat others and how honest you and others are?
Do you really care about the ethics of the people in the many professions? Does it truly matter to us whether they are honest?
Former attorney, political comedian and frequent commentator on various TV networks including CNN, Dean Obeidallah is left with a few burning questions and writes: "If we actually did care about the moral fitness of Congress, why would we re-elect them to the tune of 91% in 2012?
If honesty truly meant something to us, wouldn't we have voted out at
least half of them? Even 25%? But no, when given a chance last month to
vote out Congress, we sent home only 9% of those up for re-election.".
As the American Congress remains involved in protracted negotiations over the
pending "fiscal cliff" that could disrupt the nation's economy if not
addressed by Jan. 1, one in 10 Americans rate the honesty and ethical
standards of its members as very high or high. This puts the lawmaking
body second lowest on a list of 22 professions measured -- higher only
than car salespeople.
Topping the list of professions we find most ethical were nurses,
followed by pharmacists and doctors. Dentists came in lower, but I doubt
that dentists are truly less honorable than M.D.s; it's just that
dentists seem to enjoy causing us so much pain that this may be our way
of paying them back.
