I don't dare to agree or disagree.  This is a very difficult
question.  It is very easy to agree ethics on the abstract level
but their application is always difficult.  The Christianity and
almost every religions have ample of bad examples of that.  In
both cases, not to defence or to drfence, you might get some
karma, good or bad.  I don't know.

I would say, if I have to say anything, that this is about your
personal choice, so you are the only person who can answer to it.

   Peace. aki.
