Moral Equivalence: a term used in political debate, usually to criticize any denial that a moral hierarchy can be assessed of two sides in a conflict, or in the actions or tactics of two sides.
I saw this posted on another page and the implied moral equivalence disgusted me. The implication is that there is no difference between these two women,
- A: An armed American free citizen willing to DEFEND life, liberty and even the religious freedom for those religions different than their own…; and
- B: A religious extremists willing to KILL in order to establish the dominance of their religion and to subjugate the masses under its religious law.
To some, far too many I’m afraid, there is no difference that they can see. All they see is what is on the surface; a Gun, a Flag and a Religion. However, to anyone with working brain cells capable of more substantial critical thinking, the two could not be more different, even diametrically opposed. The shallow, asinine question “Is this how we want to be seen?” illustrates the very superficiality they operate under. Their entire thought process never ventures beyond what it “looks” like or how it makes them “feel”.
