As his behavior confirms, morality is not the virtue put on a pedestal but rather the overriding necessity of courtly manners, traits that knights must possess in order to fulfill their duties.
As the ending line, "Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pense," is also the trademark of the highest order of knighthood, it looks as if this poem is communicating a central value of such an order.
What is interesting about this line thought is that the value is not courage nor fidelity but manners!

Now, let's say that X unconstitutionally discriminates against a minority group Z. CC thinks that the legislative process is a better guarantor of Z's rights than the judiciary.
