The Reformed Pirate

HUCKFN-NFXC7B

Why does Huck not take a moral stance on the king defrauding the people at the camp meeting with his "reformed pirate" act?

A

The king only took in $87.75 - too small a sum to be morally outraged over.

B

Such an audience deserves to be defrauded.

C

The king's tears were so real, Huck sympathized with the crowd's reaction to such emotion.

D

Huck was hungry and felt eating food bought with the $87.75 earned from the scheme was more important than being judgmental.

E

Huck's own morals are skewed, so he does not trust himself to judge others.
