A fundamental question that has yet to be resolved is this, do you have the right to impose your morality onto others.
A famous document almost always taken out of context is the Treaty of Tripoly. Do you have the right to hold to your moral absolutes when it will sentance others to death.
Muslims had taken American sailors captive and if the Muslims weren't decieved into believing Americans tolerant to thier beliefs the sailors would be sentanced to a beheading death.
Do you as a governing body have the right to indirectly cause someone else to die for your beliefs.
In a perfect world you would be able to ask the people held what they would choose and then proceed but that is an unlikely scenario.<< New text box >>
