A response from A Girl to- well, either a pacifist moron or a absolute, total fool. Two bits:
Here is what I want you to understand, he does not think all people are
equal and deserve to live a peaceful life. He believes that bad guys
have the right to kill and good guys have the right to die. He believes
your life and mine are less valuable. He believes that in allowing
yourself to be killed the bad guy now has the opportunity to due
process(found in a separate comment on same post). In the end his entire
argument is that no one has the right to be murdered, but if there is a
choice between good and evil, evil should get his day in court.
If you get nothing else from this blog, please get this…YOU HAVE VALUE!
Your life has value. All by itself your life has value. You have the
right not to be mugged, raped, beaten or murdered, anywhere at anytime,
by anyone and you most certainly have the right to do your best to stop
someone who is trying to do any of those things to you. There isn’t a
single moral, religious or statistical argument that carries more weight
than YOU are valuable. YOU have worth. Not because you are a mother or a
wife. Not because you volunteer at the local shelter. Not for any
reason other than your life is a gift and as such no one has the right
to forcibly take it from you and if they try then you have every right
to say, No, not today. Not EVER!
