Hey, I like that interpretation. Forbearance and forgiveness 
only apply to slapping, the taking of clothing and forced 
marches of one mile. In all other slights, Christians are

Oh yeah, and to crucifiction. Jesus asked forgiveness of those
who crucified him. Otherwise, somebody messes with you, 
put him down.
