Noble Heart, Steely Sinew
You're right - but still: Harry *thinks* about whether Wormtail's life should be taken, whereas LV doesn't care in the least.You misunderstand me, Sir cadogan.
Harry wasn't bothered if Wormtail died, he just didn't want his friends to become murderers as you said, but, Harry didn't want to spare Wormtails life FOR Wormtail, but for his friends, and to prove Sirius's innocence.
I'm not saying all the circumstances are IDENTICAL, but SIMILAR. Doh!.
I beg to differ. Being open-minded does not mean accepting evil arguments at the same value as reasonable arguments. Additionally, LV did not act against Lily to punish her for "doing wrong", but in order to defend himself in his usual, ruthless manner. LV doesn't know any "right" or "wrong", he just distinguishes between what suits his purposes and what doesn't.secret seeker said:You say Lily hadn't done anything wrong, but, you are just seeing it from the perspective J.K.R. wants you to see!. Ask Voldemort if she had done anything wrong and he would say " She gave birth to my future doom ".
So, from Voldemorts point of view, she had done wrong, hadn't she?.
Try to stay open-minded, please.
There is a fundamental difference between people with moral principles and people without. To call LV's contempt for human values *his* morals is inappropriate and hasn't got anything to do with open-mindedness.
No offence meant, secret seeker - I'm not attacking you personally, I just don't agree with your views here (if I understood you correctly).
