Bob Hockett asks with *obvious* generosity of spirit: "What must these people do to earn Patrick's forgiveness?"
Did I speak a word about "forgiveness"? No. Bob's just makin' that up. False start.
"Forgiveness" is not a relevant concept, Bob. The reasons for its irrelevance are here: http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1428512
I am not interested in the hypothetical of "forgiving" the military. I condemn my government's speaking -- no matter the spokesperson or his/her level -- falsesehoods, *especially* about the Church. Don't you?
