The Euthyphro Dilemma

Worth reading whether you are religious or non:

The Euthyphro dilemma rests on a modernised version of the question asked by Socrates in the Euthyphro: “Are morally good acts willed by God because they are morally good, or are they morally good because they are willed by God?”

    Former priest gets 25 years on sex charge with boy

    By DON BABWIN Associated Press Writer

    A former Roman Catholic priest convicted of taking a boy on religious retreats to have sex with him was sentenced Wednesday to 25 years in prison.

    Donald McGuire, of Oak Lawn, displayed no emotion as U.S District Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer imposed a 300-month sentence that likely means the 78-year-old former priest will die in prison.

    Pallmeyer said McGuire used his stature, his international reputation that included being a spiritual adviser to Mother Teresa and the trust parents had in him that he would care for “the finest gifts God ever gave them: their children.”

    She said the boys’ confidence, faith, innocence and sexual desire were destroyed.

    “You robbed them of all these things,” she said after a hearing that included statements from victims, including McGuire’s godson.
