Is it moral for an innocent person to be killed so that a guilty person could avoid being held accountable for their own actions?Posted by: briantheliberal
For example, an innocent man (or woman) who has never done anything to harm anyone else being sacrificed or publicly tortured/executed to save another person from being punished or taking responsibility for their wrongdoings (such as lying, stealing etc...) ? Do you think this is a reasonable and moral practice?
Yes. An innocent person being punished on the behalf of those who are guilty is a good and moral thing.
No. Innocent people should not be punished for the actions of the guilty. We must be held accountable for our own actions.
there are examples, the children of Adam and Eve where punished for the crimes of there parents, Jesus was killed to remove the crimes of the Christians. So if god says its ok then it must be ok, right?
Everyone is equally worthless... but some are less worthless than others.
Though I may not necessarily do this depending on if who gets involved.
