Religious ethics
Most religions have an ethical component, often derived from purported supernatural revelation or guidance. According to Simon Blackburn, "For many people, ethics is not only tied up with religion, but is completely settled by it. Such people do not need to think too much about ethics, because there is an authoritative code of instructions, a handbook of how to live."
Ethics, which is a major branch of philosophy, encompasses right conduct and good life. It is significantly broader than the common conception of analyzing right and wrong. A central aspect of ethics is "the good life", the life worth living or life that is simply satisfying, which is held by many philosophers to be more important than traditional moral conduct.
Some assert that religion is necessary to live ethically. Blackburn states that, there are those who "would say that we can only flourish under the umbrella of a strong social order, cemented by common adherence to a particular religious tradition".

Judge may compete in dance-off for religious group, ethics opinion says
A South Carolina magistrate judge may dance in a fundraising event for a religious organization, according to an ethics opinion issued on Friday. The opinion gave its blessing to the judge’s participation in the event, which would be similar to the Dancing with the Stars television show, report the Wall Street Journal Law Blog (sub. req.) and the Legal Profession Blog. The judge would be one of five dancers from the congregation performing with a local dance professional. The judge had no plans to personally solicit donations, the money would go directly to the religious organization, and the identities of the contributors would be kept confidential. “A full-time magistrate judge may participate as a dancer in a fundraiser for a religious organization,” the opinion says, “where the judge does not personally solicit donations or allow the organization to use the prestige…
