    are many things that do not immediately endanger life, limb, or eyesight that are nontheless evil and worth fighting.  As an example, many forms of torture including waterboarding don't "immediately endanger life, limb, or eyesight".

      Not as appropriate in Civilian life.  Course in the military we have the UCMJ which specifically forbids torture and numerous other guidelines...

      Not that anybody seems to pay any attention to that anymore... grumble.

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

      •  Yes but that saying could also be interpreted (0+ / 0-)

        to mean ignoring UCMJ violations, even serious ones, (such as prohibitions against torture) unless they "immediately endanger life, limb, or eyesight" which waterboarding usually does not.
