Who Gets To Be Forgiven

The strain of conservative Christianity which says that as long as you're the right sort of person, tribally, you can do no sin, is certainly appealing to some.
Bruce Register, 87, a retiree from Dothan, Ala, said that spiritually, the whole controversy was moot.

“I really don’t think someone of his character would have done that. And if he had done it, it doesn’t matter in God’s eyes because he’d have been forgiven,” Register said.

Especially when the tribal affiliation mostly requires "hating the people you're supposed to hate."

At least Catholics have to confess.
