Do you agree that love is used as an excuse for many things ?

Asked by Hibernate (9050points) June 12th, 2011

Something of a pool.

Used as an excuse for many things like procreation / help [ aid ] / war / conflicts / murders etc. When someone does a thing I hear ” I did it for love OR love made me do it ”

I’m Mostly interested in YES or NO replies not long debates ^^

Try to stick to yes or no replies please.
Thanks.

Yes, but it can be love for many things. I would lay the blame for wars, etc. at the feet of religion rather than love.

Yes, just like its twin, hate.

Many things are used as excuses for many things.

Please God tell me you’re not going to use the results in this “pool” to represent any kind of general population?

Never an excuse.

Yes. Isn’t it funny how often love is surprisingly indistinguishable from one’s own personal desires?

Hidden_Mystery's avatar

It seems a yes and no system doesn’t work. Is love an excuse for it not doing so? lol
