66. Welcome to DU, AngryDem001!

Good to have you with us! I tend to agree with that. It absolves them of all guilt, responsibility, or any sort of involvement. It's for the same reason I cringe when I hear people say "I'm FORGIVEN!" george w. bush used to say that fairly frequently. And I always wondered - is that why you do such horse's-ass things? Because you've got some free pass to forgiveness and it doesn't matter how much you fuck people over, 'cause you already got that free pass? So ANYTHING'S okay that you do? Even when you screw the taxpayers, make money off the poor and gullible, and send all their kids to a war you LIED us into, to die and/or get their legs blown off? Oh, but wait - you're FORGIVEN already! So none of that counts, and NONE of that is on your ledger that you're gonna have to hand in to St. Peter when you get to the Pearly Gates? You get a free pass there, too, after all the shit you pulled and all the shit you caused?

I'm a lifelong Catholic. A "Cafeteria Catholic" according to some. But I've always have trouble with that "I'm forgiven" concept. Doesn't make sense to me that - after the kind of life that bastard has lived, his mere declaration that he's "forgiven" will get him into Heaven free 'n' clear. I don't care how "forgiven" one claims to be. That is NOT some "License to be a Schmuck."
