They forgot that this is a human being or they never knew what that means.
Evil is that which is, “profoundly immoral and malevolent.”
Some CNN talking head says he doesn’t think the torture of a mentally disabled person is evil. It’s just misunderstood. You see, according to him, “I think they have bad home training”. To be sure talking back to your parents or staying out late or dying your hair bright pink can be a sign of bad home training, or normal teenage development. But a group of over 18 year old’s torturing someone is beyond bad training. There is some talk about charging them with a hate crime due to the suspects’ use of racial slurs. But this goes beyond hate. This is worse than hate. Worse than even apathy. This is glee, joy, in the suffering of another and joy in the administration of that suffering.
The nature of evil
Evil or wicked hardly seem strong enough words to describe the actions of these suspects. If evil could be personified in a form other than Satan it would take on the faces of someone who would torture another human being and take joy in it.
Evil is not a naughty puppy who chews up your favorite slipper because he hasn’t been trained properly yet. It is people given over to a reprobate mind.
Thinking about what was done to this young man by the suspects (now arrested) makes my blood boil. Those who prey upon the weak are by their very natures evil.
The nature of the Left
There are many reasons (I suppose) why Trump will soon be our next president, but in a nutshell, this article typifies the reasoning behind his election. If the left cannot even see something so terrible as this and call it evil their moral equivalence and moral excuse making knows no bounds.
Somethings are wrong. Plain and simple. It doesn’t matter if all the people on earth decided they weren’t wrong, they still would be. There are universal wrongs and universal rights that transcend time and space, politics, philosophies and governments.
The very fact that we possess certain unalienable rights means a violation of those rights is by nature wrong. Delighting in it is evil.
Know it when you see it, name it when you see it, turn away only long enough to protect the woman and children from it, then face it, and destroy it.
