Moral Problems PHL 118L

As a Leader Advancement Scholarship recipient, we are required to take certain classes that follow our protocol. For the first semester of our Sophomore year we are required to take HDF 110, which is a whole other story, and PHL 118L, Moral Problems. Now this class was very interesting to say the least. First off, it was at 8:00 am. Rule number one of a college student is to never take an 8 am unless you either enjoy early mornings or you have no choice. Yes I didn’t have a choice. Realistically my body was at class everyday, but my mind surly wasn’t. Secondly, the first day we walk into class with this crazy old dude that has quite a lot of energy. That my friends, is Professor Gary Fuller. Now Gary is a mysterious figure, that I didn’t really get at first. His main philosophy is to basically question everything and then come up with an answer. Even the most ridiculous questions came up like whether or not it was morally acceptable to kill a cow because you were angry. That’s when it hit me right in the beginning. Moral problems wasn’t about what is right or wrong, but what we do as leaders to figure out how we keep everyone satisfied when it comes to making a difficult decision. This class did teach me how to think outside the box and I’m supper happy that we had a wonderful Christmas party at Gary’s.

Papa Francisco

One person out there in the world can be named the Pope of the Catholic Church. In Catholicism the word pope comes from a Greek term meaning “Father”. As a Catholic, it is my believe that the Pope is the closest and messenger from God. Only the most pure and good hearted man in Catholicism is supposed to be the Pope. In my opinion Pope Francis is not only playing his role as Pope, but actually following through his duty of spreading the Word of God and living his life the way Jesus Christ did. I’m not writing this post to debate which religion is wright or to preach. I’m writing this post to spread the leadership ethics that Pope Francis is currently possesses.

Pope Francis is often criticized for being “too liberal” and opening the doors to too many people. What these critics don’t understand that his leadership doesn’t effect just the Catholics on this planet, but the entire world. Of what I have noticed is that Pope Francis is living a life doing the best he can to resemble the life of Jesus Christ. For those who don’t believe in Christianity, Jesus lived his life in peace and did no wrong doing. All he wanted to do was spread his peace and help everyone, good or bad. Pope Francis is reflecting a life that shows that he cares about everyone and is peacefully fighting for the advancement of ethical leadership.

For those who follow the news, you well know that Pope Francis has said that the Catholic Church is open to gays, lesbians, transexuals, transgender, crossdresser, and literally anyone who is open to accept Jesus Christ as our savior. The Church is has often been bashed because people claim that Catholics are “homophobic” and aren’t open to gay people. Pope Francis has been one of the most radical Catholic Popes but I honor him for using the noble phrase “Who am I to judge somebody”. He welcomes everyone, wants the Church to be a safe place, and he even said to a little boy who’s dog had passed that his dog and all of God’s creatures will have a place in heaven. This statement contradicted the previous pope who said that animals won’t go to heaven. Pope Francis is opening up what Christianity is all about and lives his life as an ethical leader.
