I agree. The term "forgive" can be ambiguous; in the moral sense we are to
forgive everyone, but the term is often used in a secular sense of not bringing
them to justice, as in dismissing their crime. And I wanted to make it clear that
that wasn't what I believed.

Marc A. Schindler
Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada -- Gateway to the Boreal Parkland
“We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and deeds; the
worst thing is to rush into action before the consequences have been properly
debated…To think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was
a coward; any idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly
character; ability to understand a question from all sides meant that one was
totally unfitted for action.” – Pericles about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by
Thucydides in “The Peloponessian Wars”
