Quick question: What did former NY governor Eliot Spitzer do that was so wrong?
An article by Ruth N. Geller in Humanist Network News tackles the “Client 9” scandal with a focus on Humanist ethics.
One person cited in the story is Lewis Vaughn, author of the Institute for Humanist Studies’ Continuum of Humanist Education Ethics curriculum:
Vaughn feels that most humanists will separate the Spitzer scandal into several discrete issues: the hypocrisy unveiled is one thing; the illegalities are another; and the third is the actual action behind the hypocrisy.
“Most humanists would see visiting a prostitute in terms of sexual freedom and sexual choice, said Vaughn.”They would not be so bothered by that.”
Is he right?
Alonzo Fyfe, the Atheist Ethicist, is quoted in the HNN article as well.
