I will continue to discuss the quantification of value in the near future. However, a news article today presents an opportunity that I would like to propose - particularly for readers living in California.
The news in question reports:
SAN DIEGO — A group of conservative attorneys say they are on a mission from God to unseat four California judges in a rare challenge that is turning a traditionally snooze-button election into what both sides call a battle for the integrity of U.S. courts.

This campaign year would be an excellent opportunity to produce a set of Youtube style videos in which a "Christian" appeals or supreme court judge passes judgment on cases according to christian principles.
These would be cases of a child sentenced to death for talking back to his parents, an individual sentenced to death for working on the day of the Sabbath, a murderer who is acquitted because, in keeping with the biblical commandments, he killed a person who he caught trying to convert a family member to some other religion, and the endorsement of slavery.
It could include a terrorist justifying the use of biological agents killing every first-born child in the kingdom or the complete destruction of a town because he could not find ten righteous people within it given biblical standards of righteousness.
Such a project would serve a dual purpose of helping to defeat this movement and to teach the moral bankruptcy of various claims made in scripture.
Just a thought . . . one that I thought I would throw out there.
I will now return to the subject of quantifying value.
