"The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crises maintain their neutrality" I like the quote however this was stated by John F. Kennedy and attributed by him to Dante. So it's a misquote, as kewl as it is it's not Dante.

Yikes! What about those that are not neutral in their morality for which it is considered a duty to murder those that will not submit? I would think they would deserve a hotter place than the merely apathetic... ;-) Too often the choice is merely between the devils on this side vs the devils on that side -- their morality being only might makes right.

For I am not ( Ashamed ) of the Liberty with which God has made me Free. To many times I have seen grown men, turn from the truth, of right and wrong behavior. Moral crisis, never throw off, the responsibility of taking a stand, when put to the test. It is better to suffer for the good than to suffer for the bad. By this practice, the outcome will be a blessing in the long run. Lukewarm will not get the job done ! We know the " Amen's feelings on this matter.
