    Well, I think they should have elected me. But since they didn't, I guess I will just go forward with my retirement plans!

    Murder is a legal construct. Specifically it is an illegal homicide. You have to accept that the law gets it right 100% of the time to accept that all murders are bad. I'm not to willing give the law that level of infallibility.

    Would charitable contributions to an organization that kills innocent people be good?
    If the intent is good. If you don't know your money is going to kill people, but you believe that you are giving money charitably for a good cause, then you're doing good.

    What does sharing farts have to do with morality, and how on earth does that thought cross someone's mind?

    It is a humorous way of explaining the falsity of objective morality

    Re: Do you REALLY care about the next Pope?

    Hmm? 46 pages? Seems to show that somebody cares.

    61 votes for "I could care less", showing that they care, but could actually care less than they do.
    Obviously someone cares.

    I think the results stand for it's self.

    People care. iLOL

    So then if the intent is then the charitable contribution is bad is it not?

    Dropped a word or two. Apologies.

    So if the intent of the contributor is evil then the charitable contribution is similarly evil?

    No. Nature is incapable of good and evil. Only human beings can act either good or evil.

    If the intent of the contributor is evil, then the contributor is acting in an evil way. The end result - what actually happens to that contribution - is actually irrelevant.
