    I think "force of habit" would explain why you might stop.

    I disagree.

    You can take a group of people that all follow one religion and even attend the same church. Not all of their views will be exactly the same.

    I have an ISFJ friend that's a practicing Mormon. He believes transgender individuals and homosexuals should have equal rights. He's actually very progressive regarding many issues Mormons are against.

    When I drive around a real rural area I'll sometimes use my turn signal or stop at a stop sign without thinking out of habit, it's true for me at least.

    Oh, I agree that people of the same religion will have an array of different views and morals. I was just saying that many religious people believe in universal right and wrongs and morals. To them that's reality.

    Nah, it just creates a funny image in my head. If Jesus existed at all the the Bible describes him, he sounds like he was a real good person.

    Yesssss. Also Beavis and Butthead!

    I do these little piddly "breaking the law" things from time to time. Like speeding, jaywalking.

    I have a pretty heavy-duty values system and know what kinds of things I can do without violating it and what would cause me personal damage if I did. I worry more about that then I do the consequences of men. But Beat makes a point when he suggests that chosing to go against society really reguires the self-honesty to be prepared to accept the stated consequence of doing so. That, at the least, would be expected and admirable in a twisted sort of way.

    There have been two times in my work life when I have been required to do something which my values system superceded and I went with my conscience over the law.

    Both times being caught would have caused serious consequences for me, and perhaps my family, because both were federal offenses. I thought long and hard before I made my decisions and I would do it again, I believe. There are some things I won't sell out to. So Sixties of me. Hey. I've gotta live with myself. . .

    It's coincidental that I watched "The Storm of the Century" last night. The moral dilemma which occurs at the end made me think of this thread.

    I guess it could boil down to the "needs of the many" outweighing the needs of the few.

    The film was boring as heck but that puzzle at the end became disturbing to me.
