    A man holds a woman at gun point. In the other hand, he has a detonator for fifty pounds of C4 buried under an orphanage. You aren't allowed to move or speak or he'll pull the trigger and activate the C4. He tells you to say only one of two words, "C4" or "Her" and he'll spare that group but kill other(s). You have no chance of getting help and time is short. You must make a decision.

    What do you do?

    "We have a common Father. We should learn to love our brothers and sisters all over the world.
    Thus, I would have you commit neither act"

    I'd punch him in the face. WIN!

    No, but FOLLOWING THE RULES (Try it Eli!) I would say C4. Because I don't have a special someone like that :(

    pro2A Hell, It's about time!

    Nope, you should love the guy holding the detanator. If you love him he won't kill anyone:)

    Seriously, I agree with you, take him out.

    "Her". The lesser of two evils is the better option. Minimize losses.

    You just got everyone killed; the orphanage and the girl.

    That option is unavailable in the scenario.

    Chaos, we know that.
    we're just hoping for FTS to come here and say "neither of the acts".

    Define her, her as a normal girl, your friend or your girlfriend/wife?

    I was going to say save the kids then I had a think about it and realised they won't get anywhere in life anyway considering they are orphans. I'd save the woman.

    Wow. I hope you are joking, because that was just insulting to those poor kids.

    So if there are no answers expected what's the point of having this in Divisive Issues and not Sub Talk?

    I'm still going to answer the OP regardless.
