Persons must be evaluated by others -- it is a fact of life.
Persons of few words are able to seem wise, honest, and moral.
Some persons, by vocation, are not allowed to be "persons of few words." A person who says very little might tell fewer lies than a person
we employ to speak volumes. But that, by itself, does not make the former MORE MORAL than the latter, or more honest, or more wise.

"If all men are created equal," we must not evaluate everyone by the same standards UNLESS in doing so we evaluate their context and burdens also.

A typical question of morality is
whether Saddam and Osama Bin Laden are gay icons
or anti-gay icons like G. Gordon Liddy.
The Cartoon "South Park" implies Saddam is gay,
while "The Nation" magazine implied Osama Bin Laden is gay. Like G. Gordon Liddy, both of them are reported to have a great interest in women --
Saddam with multiple sex partners and Osama Bin Laden with four wives. Further, it had been reported that Iraq's anti-gay atmosphere was one of the strongest in the world. Can you cite a report to the contrary?
Before 9/11/01, American broadcaster
G. Gordon Liddy, apparently monogamous,
was known for broadcasting, almost "Howard Stern-like," very strong torrent of sexual patter about women. Liddy also published an annual calendar of scantily clad women holding guns...and says things like,"We need to get rid of all the homosexuals among us."

So ... are those guys moral?
Are those guys gay or are they anti-gay?
Are South Park and The Nation "honest?"
