Morality has priority over reality.
For example, you are in a forest, walking on a path. You come upon a fork (split) in the path. Suddenly, a man runs past you and onto the left branch of the fork. A minute later, a dozen, known Muslim terrorists run up to you and ask, “Which way did the man go?” The reality (true) answer is that he ran left. The morality (protecting) answer is that he ran right. Unless you are a moral pervert, you say to the terrorists, “He ran right.”
