Suppose you were on a sinking boat and you and several others managed to escape in a lifeboat. As you sail out you spot two things: a chest full of gold and Fred Phelps (of Westboro fame) begging for help? There is spot on your boat for only one of those things so which do you choose?
I delibrately chose Fred Phelps because he while saying despicable things hasn’t actually murdered or raped or whatnot so you cannot claim you’d pick the gold to protect yourself.
I would choose Phelps because despite everything he is still a human being and thus one of the God’s children.
