For example, let’s say that Catholics believe what they do not because it is rational or divine (Even if they are, it still needs to be valued for truth or divinity), but because it is compatible with their deepest values: IE value for others, and a desire for ‘home’ and ‘belonging’. They are often biologically less fit, or fit for long and stable lives (Few sexual partners, little risk, following the law, etc.) Often times, the people drawn to Catholicism are burdened, hard lives, sad, lonely, etc and Christ gives them peace and escape from the problems they cannot overcome.
In contrast, the psychopath has no empathy for others (Biological so not a choice to ‘feel’ for others.) which leads to personal desires over anything else, to a ruthless degree. This drive puts them in a short life path, but with a host of evolutionary benefits (Which is why it exists, it is not a disorder but an advantage for the majority of our brutal history.). This person can never be a Catholic but in name, since he cannot love others or really care about anyone but himself.
This contrast makes me think about the decision to value. It doesn’t seem like it can entirely be an act of personal will, it has to be, in some sense, a part of our nature. If that is the case, it seems in contrast to Catholic teaching (I’m not a Catholic anymore), but I am curious to see how this question is resolved in your minds.
