From the Gallup poll, I chose gambling because this is one of the issues applicable to me. In my opinion, if you hear the word gambling, you would always think of places associated to casinos, slot machines and the like. Since we have this perception, we would always consider this action wrong due to the fact that people lose and gamble money instead of attending to their family’s needs. If you consider the word “gambling” in a wider and a more objective sense, it does not only apply to games. There are times when gambling or using instinct is a part of making decisions. The choices we make are not always on the sinful side, and we habitually use our instincts, spontaneity, and sometimes gamble in making decisions. So this in way shows that gambling is not necessarily always on the bad side. For example, when you are taking an important test, and that you see this person next to you collapse or faint, you would always consider the options you have. You would also have to gamble to decide which decision would be best. (To help the person in need or continue taking the test.)
Based on my answers above, I could say that I am a moral rationalist because I considered two sides the act of gambling. It can be sinful when people use it in an improper manner. (Just like spending piles of money instead of doing something better for it.) It can also be seen in a good light when it is used in an intuitive way such that a good decision is made.
Honestly, I would have to say that before you do something such as gambling, you have to consider some factors: whether it could or hurt others and yourself, as well as the implications of your actions. If you suspect that your action will not do any help, then it is important to be cautious in making your decisions. It is best that you not pursue it because there is a bad side to it. If you personally think it won’t do any harm or affect anyone, follow what your heart and conscience says to you.
