I’ll agree with the above comment, but not with the above story.

Polls are conducted by the same idiots who compile TV ratings, and wanted us to believe no one was watching Star Trek or Family Guy. I’ve never been polled…no one I know has ever been polled. Maybe this is something we should be voting on. Shaky polling numbers are not, and never should be, a mandate for anything.

Even as stupid as our society is getting, I refuse to believe that we are so far gone that a majority of us want to reward people for breaking our laws.

Well, I guess it boils down to those who want to provide grace and a way to “get right” with the law/Lord and those who want a pound of flesh and forever marking the transgressor as a sinner to never be fully redeemed in their eyes.

So, Jesus or the Pharisees?  Which perspective do you embrace?

Personally, I like the grace idea.  Forgiveness is not forgetfulness and it strengthens both the forgiver and the forgiven…
