"Secular Progressive"? You must be an O'Reilly fan.

Thanks for posting that article. I was kind of hoping for a discussion, rather than a copy/paste-athon.

That said, I feel like this part came closest to answering my question:

"I feel that judgment for sin is not always as cut-and-dried as some of us seem to think," Elder Ballard said. "The Lord said, 'Thou shalt not kill.' Does that mean that every person who kills will be condemned, no matter the circumstances? Civil law recognizes that there are gradations in this matter — from accidental manslaughter to self-defense to first-degree murder. I feel that the Lord also recognizes differences in intent and circumstance."
So is that the general line of thought? That there are differences in intent and circumstance?
