That last one

Perhaps needlessly harsh

but:

For a man who is supposedly god's representative on earth he has been party to some intolerable cruelties and well..

He was in a position to stop a great amount of pain yet under his nose decades of child abuse were perpetrated and while I'm not sure which is the greater evil: the evil that men do, or the evil of good men who allow evil to flourish I AM sure that both are hard, if not impossible to forgive when someone placed in a position of supreme trust abuses that trust.

So perhaps not needlessly harsh after all, but I shouldn't make light of the death of another nor take joy in it.

I'm not going to make excuses for what terrible mistakes were made in regards to the child molestation... but it seems like we need to move forward and heal and prevent it from happening again rather than just be absorbed by hate. After a while, even the expression of anger necessarily gives way to release and forgiveness. Otherwise, we're still owned by the things that people have done to us.

Quite right, I temporarially forgot to forgive and forget.
