    This is about the same level of sophistication as fundies wanting us to look at aborted fetuses.

    •  Fundamentalists (0+ / 0-)

      Fundamentalists often distort the facts surrounding photos of fetuses, often claiming more developed fetuses are actually younger, and often leaving out the medical reason for fetuses that have almost developed to term and died beforehand.

      I don't think Ken literally means people must be forced to look. He's most certainly not advocating that images should be viewed without the assent or knowledge of the families of the people depicted. What I think he means is that if people are not considering the plight of the victims and their families they should be challenged to do so in no uncertain terms. "Forced to look" is a term of art, a tool of poetic license, and as such should not be taken literally.
