Morality vs. Holiness

I was going through a notebook I keep of interesting reading, old calendars and journal pages and such.  I ran across a really good article by a columnist named Dennis Prager about the difference between morality and holiness.  Here’s a link to the article:

       Judeo-Christian Values Part 15: We Are Not Just Animals

Here’s a good quote: "…one needs to appreciate that holiness is not a moral category. There is nothing immoral in eating with one’s face inside a bowl. It is unholy to do so, but not immoral or unethical."
