Would it be Moral to keep information private that you believed others could benefit from?
“Keep your religion to yourself!”
Many people have this opinion. I’m not one of them.
Religionists who vote (eg. for anti-abortion laws or for god in the classrooms) or who share (eg. JWs or Mormons or any Missionary) their opinions with others are people who are convinced that they know something unbelievers are unaware of. Also, they believe that teaching their opinion is for the benefit of others.
Regardless of whether their beliefs are accurate, their beliefs feel accurate to them. Is it reasonable, then, to expect such people to keep quiet about their beliefs? Is it reasonable to expect such ones not to try to convert others?
Why should someone who believes they have beneficial and useful information for others keep that information to themselves?
What is the appropriate means to disseminate such information? Is it moral to adopt a “wait until asked” principal?
