Where is the conscience?

At last! I have wondered, ever since Sept. 13, 2001, when Bush started off on his drive to war, where the churches were.I was raised, as I believe many of those 65 years or older, to believe that “the end does not and cannot justify the means.” The argument is simple. No one can foretell the future. To do evil in the hopes that the future will turn out well, is simply to do evil – nothing more. We were also raised to believe that “might does not make right.” Might makes things possible, but never right. It takes ethical action and moral reason to make right.Maybe columnist Rich Mayfield (SDN, Feb. 26) has spoken out before, but where are all the other people of God or people of conscience?
