Reppert on Harris on Killing People for What They Believe

On his Dangerous Idea blog, Victor Reppert takes Sam Harris to task for his statement that “‚ÄúSome beliefs are so dangerous that it may be ethical to kill people for believing them.”

I haven’t read Harris’s book. With that said, based solely on the quotation provided by Reppert, I find Harris’s (apparent?) statement appalling. If it’s true, Harris had better hope his opponents don’t adopt his ethical principle and then decide his beliefs are “too dangerous.”
