Of the two, which is worse; a person who had unforced sex with a child, or someone who murdered another human being?
edit Try to filter the actions as the Actions themselves and not making allowances for age, if you do make allowance for age please add details to justify why the age is important logically not simply because off kneejerk reaction because it is outside your ”ick factor”.
People try all of the time to say they do not judge or that everyone is he same in some way. Can we be real? There is always a classification and/or judgment. For example, there is a person known to most of us as a good acquaintance, he had sex with a minor but she lied and said she was legal, but she was 4 months short of being legal, when it was discovered and the good acquaintance went to break off the relationship, the young lady tried to blackmail him for her not to turn him in; he refused to pay her so it ended up in court and him losing, not terrible, but enough. Yet another person known has admitted to killing someone else and not by accident. They did their time and are now on the streets again. Now some may say both cases are just as bad. Ignoring the age which will surely taint many answers, and the extortion byproduct of the act, if the choice came down to one being tortured to death and the other sentenced to a short period of rehabilitation, which punishment would you choose for which offender? Whichever one you chose for rehab, the other would be tortured to death; there are no in-between or choices, one will be worse than the other, you can’t straddle the fence. View the death as intentional murder—not an accident, self-defense, manslaughter, or unintentional. Which of these TWO CRIMES, and these two alone, is worse to you?
