"I think we're using 'instruct' differently, Mark. I was
meaning it in the sense of 'to direct, give orders to' (in
keeping with the idea of
'moral lessons'), whereas I think you're using it to mean 'to provide knowledge'."
You may be right about our running into semantic differences.
In fact, that's why I steered away from the use of the word
"moral," since even though I know Kerry was using it in the
more general, "norms and mores" sense of the word, I have
trouble separating it from ideas of religion, which is not
what we're talking about.
