I made a post a while back about what you could tolerate in a friend. I didnít think to put invading a sovereign nation, promoting torture of humans and opposing LGBT equality on the list. Instead I asked people if they could accept a friend who came out as LGBT. If the poll is accurate (and it probably is not), seven people could not accept the latter.
"The thief and the murderer follow nature just as much as the philanthropist. Cosmic evolution may teach us how the good and the evil tendencies of man may have come about; but, in itself, it is incompetent to furnish any better reason why what we call good is preferable to what we call evil than we had before."

"Evolution and Ethics" T.H. Huxley (1893)
