If you're saying he should be forgiven because "it was a long time ago" then are you saying the WTS should be as well?
I'm not saying either of those things. How many times do I have to tell you that?
Sorry, I was going off your comments that seemed to be suggesting "well, it was a long time ago, let's forgive and forget".
which sounded to me like you think our "outrage over the
institutional covering up of crimes ... by the WTS" was clouding our
judgement and making us want to be too harsh on actual offenders. That
seemed to be suggesting the WTS crime was worse than his".
The only "seeming" and/or "suggesting" is in your mind.
I did NOT say or even suggest any of the things you think I did.
Please, do NOT read into my words things I did not say nor did I intend. If you would like clarification, just ask. I try to be clear, but can allow that no matter how much I try to express my intended meaning, I might not always be successful.
That being said, I am very frustrated by the repeated number of times on this thread and others that you have interpreted my words to mean one thing and then when I explicitly state that I did not mean that, never thought it and don't believe it you refuse to accept that but continue on with things like, "well you seemed to be suggesting..."
Please stop. If you want clarification, just ask. When I clarify, accept it and then drop it, graciously if you can.
