You gave what you wrote little thought. .

Unlike you, who wrote:

"Using the word “evil” as a context for justifying the profession of beating casinos is to diminish the value of battles fought by our armies and civil rights leaders. It lessens the memory of the lives lost through terrorist acts. It shuns the suffering of rape victims and child sex slaves. It dismisses the incredible burden of families of murder victims. It forgets genocide. There is evil and there is evil. Casinos are not evil."

Could you have found a broader brush to paint with?
The smaller evils escape your wide strokes. In fact,
under your definition of evil, casinos are one step below
the Girl Scouts.
