I believe that many issues in morality and ethics are black and white. Rape is wrong, always. Theft, when one is not on the brink of survival, is always wrong. Murder, as revenge, as part of the commission of another crime, as rage, as jealousy, as punishment, is always wrong. There are many areas of human morality which are clouded by a karma which possibly can be mitigated. Even grave karma, can possibly be mitigated.
Today, I viewed a video about the beliefs of Robert Latimer and Annette Corriveau respecting the euthanasia or killing of their disabled children. As the parent of a severely disabled child whom I have loving cared for since 1998, I wanted to condemn their actions and their beliefs. I could not, but I could cry....many tears.
