The Church as an Agency of Morality? The Catholic sociologist Hans Joas has sparked a discussion about the church as a moral agency. So far, surprisingly, no one has yet drawn attention to the morally critical features of the narrative of original sin. This narrative criticizes the knowledge of good and evil as a gesture of domination. It exposes the mechanisms that we are currently experiencing in a moral hyper sensitivity. It is an attitude, which controls many political discussions and is particularly observable on the subject of climate change. However, such a moral criticism itself has moral traits once again and must be careful not to give the criticized mechanisms of exclusion a new form.
