NB: This is a reductio ad absurdum, not serious moral advice.

I urge all married men to give into their urges to seduce that co-ed who babysits their children or that young secretary at work. It's no big deal. If your wife catches you and feels betrayed, just say, "Honey, it couldn't have been evil. After all, I've done the same thing with you and you thought that was just fine."

After all, the same hip-thrusting action is going on in both activities. It's as absurd to call one "adultery" as it is to call the waterboarding of prisoners "torture." After all, we perform the same actions on our own troops in training, right? So it can't be evil.

Glad to see a post from you.

I might add that, when explaining this to the wife, it may be more persuasive if you mention that New York City would surely have been blown up by terrorists had the seduction not been successful.

By the very same logic, then killing an enemy combatant is no different than killing an innocent person since they're both one and the same action, too.

Also, that there can never be no such thing as a just war since the kind of killing that takes place there is the very kind that takes place in any war regardless.

Bravo, monsieur, bravo!
