Communal, political and religious dialogues. 2. Family relationships, 3. Friendships and friendly relationships, 4. Intimate communications/relationships. 5. Sexual communications/relationships. 6. Private relationships. Can we with personal and communal integrity affirm radically different guidelines, rules and regulations --- regarding openness, honesty and accurate communications --- depending which of the above six (or more) realms they pertain to? Which of the following guidelines need NOT be regarded as important in any of the above six realms? A. Openness B. Honesty C. Accuracy D. Balance E. Mutuality F. Civility G. Humility H. Patience I. Hospitality J. Reverence K. Gentleness L. Forgiveness M. Mercy N. Reconciliation O. Tolerance P. Dialogue Q. Listening R. Sympathy S. Empathy T. Integrity U. Dignity V. Generosity W. Peacemaking X. Sharing Y. Cooperation Z. Flexibility Does it make sense to affirm different guidelines for different realms? On what basis should different guidelines apply to different realms of human relationships? On what basis should any one guideline apply to any one realm of human relationships? Is not the central question this question: "What guidelines will facilitate and promote both personal and communal integrity for the whole community and all of its members?" Can we make a case for saying that such guidelines will NOT apply equally well to all six (or more) realms of human relationships? Would it make sense to attempt to articulate distinctions between how well particular guidelines will apply to the different realms of human relations? What might be gained by attempting to make such distinctions? Would the gains justify the sacrifices made in attempting to articulate the distinctions? (c) 2005 by Paul A.
