  3. William Babcock & Virginia Whitehouse (2005). Celebrity as a Postmodern Phenomenon, Ethical Crisis for Democracy, and Media Nightmare. Journal of Mass Media Ethics 20 (2 & 3):176 – 191.
    In the postmodern world, the value of knowledge itself is questioned, and by extension those who claim to be authorities on that knowledge. As a result, Arnold Schwarzenegger as action hero is just as credible as Arnold Schwarzenegger as governor, thus redefining the meaning of an informed citizen. If Arnold Schwarzenegger can rescue entire planets, then why can voters not assume that he will be able to save California? The blame for this theoretical shift belongs not with the broader entertainment (...)

    With most states now making sex offender registration information available to the public, journalists must balance their obligation to inform the public about potential dangers with respect for individuals' rights. This article examines the problems journalists face in truth telling and minimizing harm and offers suggestions for covering community notification.

  6. William S. Babcock (1991). A Changing of the Christian God The Doctrine of the Trinity in the Seventeenth Century. Interpretation 45 (2):133-146.
    In the interval between the time of the Reformation and today, large numbers of Christians seem quietly to have shifted their allegiance from one God to another, leaving themselves with the doctrine of the Trinity but no longer retaining the God whom it adumbrates.

  7. William S. Babcock (1988). Augustine on Sin and Moral Agency. Journal of Religious Ethics 16 (1):28 - 55.
    Against the Manichees, Augustine argued that sin must involve a free exercise of will. Otherwise it will not count as the agent's own act for which the agent is morally responsible. In the 390's, however, Augustine became convinced that only the first humans sinned by free exercise of will. This view faced him with the question: how is it that unambiguously good agents (humans or angels as first created) come to will the evil? Augustine found no satisfactory solution, and the (...)
