Dont get me wrong,it doesnt make any difference to me,i think the concept of prayer on a whole is a complete waste of time,i just think these people
should just be forgotten and left to rot or better yet put to sleep!!!
Therein lies the problem.
What one believes is generally fine.
Now, i am going to broaden this a bit from the strictly "terrorist" to the "violent criminal," because there is essentially no difference. That is
what generally happens to violent criminals (some, not all), they are thrown in prison, forgotten, and left to rot. Granted, some feel this is exactly
what should happen, but some also feel this is inhumane and could be considered torture, regardless
of their crimes.
As for "terrorists," it doesn't seem like individuals are named, but terrorists as a "group," in which case condemning, forgetting, and leaving them
to rot doesn't really fit into the rule of any kind of law because there has been no legal proceedings. If they had been found, tried, and found
guilty then they would be no different than a violent criminal, in which case see the first paragraph. If they should simply be "put to sleep" without
a trial, they says a lot of (negatives things) about ourselves; if they should be put to sleep after being found guilty, well that's another thing
That is your opinion, of course, to which you are entitled. I have mine, but i try to be a little more ethical than "lock 'em up, throw away the key
and let 'em starve," even for those are clearly guilty. But that's just my opinion. *shrug*
Heck, even the term "terrorist" is relative. While we're at it, we should pray for terrorists US presidents and government who have started wars and
dropped bombs upon end, or the cops who terrorize using strong-arm tactics, etc... Or we could just forget about them or better yet let them rot.
should do what is right, even if that is unpopular, and not stoop to the same levels as those we condemn. And i do not mean what
is right (because that is purely based in opinion), but what is ethical.
