A quarter of Americans would report a family next door if they were living in this country illegally, and three percent of Americans would give their child an alibi if he or she committed a crime, according to a new Vanity Fair/60 Minutes poll that explored American ethics. Rabbi Simcha Weinstein, the “comic book rabbi,” is on State of Belief this week to comment on some of the poll’s results – including the ethics of lying to children, reading a spouse’s email and the biggest ethical misjudgment in American history. Rabbi Weinstein is the best-selling author of the books Up, Up, and Oy Vey: How Jewish History, Culture and Values Shaped the Comic Book Superhero and Shtick Shift: Jewish Humor in the 21st Century.
