Obviously the imaginary problem doesn't yield the result you were hoping for.
    Then you are afraid.

I suppose in this case they just stripped him naked from the waist down and chained outside to freeze to death, but still, why strip him half naked? WTF? Hell, when they used to execute people they would cut the genitals off, and again, wtf is that about? Bunch of ****ing weirdos if you ask me.

    Not really. I weighed the question even with the false dilemma and my answer is still that I wouldn't torture anyone.

    No, you just have not liked the answer. You do this all the time, you reject everything but what you want to hear, which does kinda explain all those wordpress blogs you tend to cite.

    Nope. That took less than a second to answer. Your man Alan Dershowitz perhaps needs to know some of us aren't immoral filth.
