Illud se tacere suam conscientiam non pati


Explanation:
I found with Perseus this sentence

: illud se tacere suam conscientiam non pati, Liv. 5.25.6: in

Very literally: he does not suffer from silencing his conscience

Perhaps you could use this classic example of what you are trying to say

Regards

Paola

animi debilitatio


Explanation:
paraphrasing Cicero's phrase
debilitatio atque abiectio animi: a paralysis and degrading of the soul (or conscience, one can't always make word-for-word translations)

there are alternatives:
conscientiae debilitatio
fidei debilitatio

but the first one strikes me as the most fitting for a... Yahoo name!
