The Ends Justify the Means

A recent news article helps me distinguish, there are certain people out there who believe the ends justify the means.
Are you one of them?

  1. That’s just sick and wrong. Violence is never an acceptable means when it comes to theology.

    What can I say other than the ends never justify unrighteous means?

    Lying, intentional misrepresentation, ignoring facts, presenting one side of a historical argument without even acknowledging there is another side of the issue, the list goes on….

    These are all unacceptable means, in my opinion.

  2. Here are some quotes, too precious to not repost.

    Why would you not to everything in your power to save your child from a cult?

    So Melissa, the context of your comment suggests that you are a Christian and that you believe it is okay to commit felonies against Mormons (and against members of other denominations you subjectively define as a cult). Has your minister told members of your congregation that it is okay to commit felonies against Mormons? Or is it just your personal opinion that it is okay to commit felonies against Mormons? Is it just kidnapping that you think is permitted, or are other felonies permitted as well? How about battery? Homicide? (Sort of a Christian form of honor killing, I suppose, to cleanse the family of the dishonor of having a Mormon in the family.) What particular Christian denomination do you belong to, by the way? I would really like to know.

    Honestly, it is “Christians” like you that give Christianity a bad name.
