Abigail Rae Died For Your Sins

We're not really sure just which is the worst aspect of this story -- the fact that an innocent little girl lost her life, or the fact that so many people have been turned into craven cowards all because someone somewhere "might" misunderstand a heroic action for a dastardly one.

Have we really sunk so low as a society that people are terrified to do what is manifestly right, simply because someone else "might" object? It's bad enough that people are reluctant to take the right of way in traffic when they so obviously have it. It's a thousand times worse that people refuse to call a spade a spade because some professional victim somewhere will all too willingly take offense. But to let an innocent little girl drown, all because of a fear of being labeled a pervert -- that's beyond the pale.

Western civilization died today, after a long illness.

The issue - as the article indicates - is not morality, but government interference, in light of which decent people must constantly have to choose between being "right" and being "legal" (two positions that are becoming more divergent daily).

True. What is legal is not always moral. And vice versa.

As Vox Day has so aptly pointed out on a number of occasions, one should never conflate morality with legality.
