Pakistan authorities arrested a group of people.
Does that help follows capture Osama bin Laden Pakistani arrested them essentially they -- punishing these people for doing what I'm gonna say is the right thing.
Father Jonathan Morris is where does he is the -- all of a great book god wants you happy I've read it and he's good father Jones yeah I think is Stewart.
-- -- give me the moral angle on -- Pakistan arrests I think it is five people.
Who helped us capture and kill -- -- the morality -- that is well.
I think it's very important.
Always not just in this case to keep to make it very clear distinction between what is legal and what is more on what is good but sometimes a country can put it in place a law.
That is totally immoral and unethical and we have response -- not to follow it.
Given this case in Pakistan let's say.
There's a very good thing to get bin Laden if you have a country are not saying this is what happened to give a country gets protecting him I don't have that.
Information to say that for sure.
You have eight not only eight legitimate right but in moral responsibility to stop this guy named bin Laden.
Even if the law says you can't do that you're breaking the law you're hurting our country so it is immoral act.
To arrest the guys who brought us in law that is involved in the -- of course I don't of course we don't have all of the information it was say this was an immoral thing for them to do -- We don't know exactly what we'll call -- rocket that but they've arrested I believe it's it is a cardinal.
Who wrote down the license plate numbers of the -- going into the bin Laden.
They arrested that man he would send all of us America.
The license plate numbers and allowed us to track who was going -- and who was going out they've arrested that man.
Immoral and -- forget -- insurance immoral if if they are where I am holding him he 'cause he was involved in the capture and death of bin Laden.
This guy not the government is in the right place -- Okay how about the morality of us continuing to give -- billions and it would be eight billion dollars according to vice president -- Biden.
Eight billion dollars to a government that a rests the people who helped us -- -- around well.
It that's a little bit different there's a great principle and that is formal right or material cooperation with -- with evil.
-- it formal operations people listen is saying I have the same intent is that country to get the good guys to punish the gay guys that's always a wheel wrong.
Another thing isn't material cooperation with evil.
Okay we're always cooperating with evil all the -- the -- supporting China in some way.
-- in some -- cooperating with evil but the distance.
Between our cooperation.
With that evil.
Is so great sometimes we -- to say hate to get through life we have to be able to support also diplomatic relations so that's a question for politicians.
-- -- -- Should there be strings attached to our support of Pakistan yes yes yes.
Yeah sure we pull out just because of this.
But we have to make sure that this type the type of thing does not happen for contributing to them seems to me that a religious man should be concerned with the morality all of the individual.
You cannot really answer for the morality of a government can.
-- there is and social responsibility moral responsibility of organized political life.
And that is that the government isn't -- -- with making laws that government not just individual but that government has a collective responsibility.
To make sure that those laws aren't in line with the dignity but his father I'm pretty much what's -- on this we agree on an -- -- -- That's.
I see this -- fairly straightforward terms.
We're right there -- wrong to terrorists are wrong we have a collective responsibility.
To advance our ideas liberty freedom democracy.
And we have to use.
Every -- we have father which is money.
To say ISI if you collaborate with terrorists we will not find you and we will use our drones to -- -- always a prudential choice to say.
How much can we tolerate.
-- -- tolerated too much Barbara falling into that formal cooperation Edwards saying what you're doing is okay that's formal cooperation never except not as but other made the best point of all there's.
We've been giving money without strings -- exactly I.
I really need to just attach strings -- -- I -- so everyone can swallow this a little better -- next.
One real fast don't wants to witness yesterday on this program the foremost authority on the rich Robert Frank from the Wall Street Journal he told us that's.
The new hundreds of Americans -- renouncing.
-- that citizenship and taking their money and that wealthy people going overseas for -- -- he says.
Wealthy Americans on not investing in America.
Now let's not as opposed -- morality -- responsibility.
Closely aligned with morality.
Do you think that rich people have a responsibility.
To put that money to book in America.
The place where they made that money I think every.
Person rich or not has a responsibility to not to use their their money of their resources wisely.
And it in.
With those who live around them their neighbors is taking care of their neighbors I would never say there were some moral responsibility.
-- Put all of your money or invest all your money United States but yes there's a principal called -- brother of solidarity.
Even though I own -- these things legally I have a responsibility to use them such -- that benefit those were closest to me.
To do I have responsibly to help every single 4% China at no -- -- -- -- my family members yeah.
And I wouldn't I wouldn't say that I would broad strokes I would say I would say.
Because -- you could be making a lot more money overseas and bringing money back you know I'm an American I'm proud to be an American Stewart came to this country is proud to be an American.
And I am proud to pay my taxes hope there -- what was possible but I'm gonna pay my taxes to expire last what do you have I would I would agree.
I think you should really taxes textbook -- remind everybody.
My taxes are I had a -- Democrat and -- -- because of combined.
All the junk that you always bring something special the program remains.
