  •  Yes, that's what I mean. (0+ / 0-)

    Killing another person or being willing to will absolutely strike you off my list as a "moral" person. Find another way to defend yourself that doesn't involve killing others.

    I have already said that if confronted with a gunman trying to kill my children, I will throw myself on him to stop him. I will not, however, attempt to kill him. For one thing, I will not kill. For another, I'd rather see him pay for his crimes in some way that makes him have to consider them for the rest of his natural life instead of getting the coward's easy way out by being shot.

    War is abhorrent to me. That should be enough said. I realize that those who are on the front lines rarely have a choice in that moment, but I would be a conscientious objector long before it ever came to that.
