Good question. Well I could right a whole sermon on the matter. But to just highlight things I'll be more brief.

I come from an Italian family. Back before Italy was a state, there were only provinces. A man from the country was not an "Italian", he was a Christian first then the province where he came from second. So really that's a taking off point for me. I'm Catholic just like my ancestors were and I keep the Nicene creed and the commandments. I try to follow the road of Christ, and I know it's narrow, but it's the best way to live. I speak about the gospel not by words but by living my life day to day. I do my utmost best to be an example to others. There is nothing worse than a hypocrite, like when I say I'm waiting until marriage to have sex with my girlfriend, I'm not saying it to put on airs, I'm living a chaste life. There is a way to things a place for everything and everything in its place. Faith, Family, Country.

Huzzahs to that. Though points go to full spelling of "your" rather than "ur".
It has always been to treat others as I would want them too treat me.

We have to be careful that the golden rule doesn't get watered down. Sometimes the way people say it makes it seem to much of individual honor. What I mean by that is people can sometimes take it their own way, sort of justify bad behavior or outlooks by fitting it only to themselves. Not saying you are or anything just noting an area of concern.

Good point. If I treat myself like crap it does not give me justification to treat others that way.

You've hit the nail on the head right there. People are not just, they justify, nor are people rational; people rationalize. They rationalize and justify their decisions and actions such that that is the only decision or action they could reach or have done. And before anyone goes off on me I do it as well but I am aware of what I am doing and why.

Justin---this is an EXCELLENT question---and I'm going to put some thought into it today before I answer.  I will turn 50 in February, and I realized that I am pretty nebulous on what my own code is---I am going to do some thinking on this today and come back to this.  Definitely worth a thorough thinking-through. 

God and family come first. Always.

Be kind to all.

Always strive to be better.

Respect women.

Be honorable.

Fight for your beliefs.

Crush your enemy. See them driven before you. Hear the laentation of their women.

I want to come to one of this guy's parties. w00t!

up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start

lol.
