Interesting discussions going on re/Bennett. I'm going to tease out a couple of the questions posed and give you a chance to discuss them in separate posts.

CMuncey asks:

Here's an open question (honest) for those with a deeper knowledge of Catholic moral theology than I (which is probably most people). Is there an clearly defined equivalent for Catholics to the Buddhist precept of right livelihood? As a Catholic, does Bennett have a moral responsibility in regard to how he spends his money, beyond simly not reducing his family to beggary? How do we interpret the blblical statement "to whom much is given, much will be required" in this case?
