How do you feel about having immoral thoughts? Like your thinking about killing someone but know you would never actually do it. Is it a weakness to have these thoughts or a strength to not indulge in them?

A murderer isn't someone who is special and only they have these thoughts, but rather they are willing to act on the urge to kill. The same thing with theft, incest, paedophelia and other taboos or immoral actions.

Also why does this site want me to misspell paedophelia as pedophilia and then not care if I use the word misspell when everyone other site yells at me for using it? We need a uniform vocabulary for the internet.

It takes the most strength to reject such thoughts to the point where you can maintain control over them with ease.

It is a weakness, as something is blocking us from our hearts of commiseration. As long as we work hard to cultivate our virtues, though, that problem will go. :)
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor

It's not bad unless you have to vent through something else to get away from it. It's at that point where options can run out, and make those immoral ideas seem more and more reasonable. Hence, the topics of video game violence, high school bullying, and other such things.
