To me it seems that this is the conversation where the "you have to decide what kind of man you want to be" line comes from. I like it, it feels more natural, Jonathan is a loving father first and foremost, and his first priority will always be Clark's safety.
Yes, absolutely. As a father, I am primarily concerned about my children's safety first before all others... including my own. I'm very sorry to say it, but if I had to make an ultimate decision between my child and another life... I would choose my child. I can completely relate to his "maybe".

I hope he doesn't eat his own words by negating it with a "no of course not"... I hope he tells Clark to make his own decision and to do things the smart way. To do things in a way that will protect himself... I think that's the role that Costner's Kent should play in this movie, Crowe's Jor-El can be the beacon of hope that will balance everything else... the two fathers directing Clark/Kal-El to find himself and ultimately become Superman.
