Abstract

Why should ministers of Religion be included on nearly every ethics committee? While this paper will not argue that ministers of Religion should be on all ethics committees, it will suggest that there are certain things which make them particularly suitable candidates for inclusion. It will first point out that they are experienced in working within ideologically diverse environments; it will demonstrate that they are experienced in applying principles to real life situations in a dynamic way; and finally, the paper will affirm their awareness of the limitations of rule-based systems.
