[I understand that Joss Whedon has included in the show's canon that demons are basically evil. I just don't agree with him. For a man attempting to portray morality in an ambiguous manner, having humans predisposed toward good and demons (including vampires) predisposed toward evil strikes me as being particularly "unambiguous". It also seems to be adhering to a Judeo-Christian viewpoint that I had thought Whedon had abandoned a long time ago.]

Actually, it's been a show that's explicitly about Good and Evil from the beginning. We've seen that some actions are wrong and horrible (evil) while others are noble and just (good).

Also, since when has Good/Evil been Judeo-Christian?
