A door open to teshuvah

Look at the self-righteousness, Schadenfreudean, smug judgmentalism, unforgiveness, salacious humor of those who are so quick to condemn the current crop of molesters.

In God’s world there must be some small group of pious men and women who offer a modicum of compassion and an embrace of supportiveness for those who have sinned.

That tiny spark of kindness far from the madding mob might contain a moment of penitence that takes away the haughtiness of our own judgement, and opens the door to our truthful teachers, Moses, Isaiah, and Jesus (who suffered His own derision and slander).

What of the opportunity of repentance for those who truly repent?
