It's The Holidays!

Recommended Posts

not wander into things that are just totally different

You're right. At Xmas the definition of amnesty should be trivialised and sugar-coated. How else could we get through the rest of the year?

So you think what your are talking about coincides with what FF2's original intent of making this thread was?

 

If so, for lack of a better phrase, "have at it." :blushing: I'm out of the thread now.

I thought I'd made it clear. I don't diminsh the possibility of banished members of the community being welcomed back.

You know?

 

People only get Banned when they really step over the Mark.

 

This Thread started out about Holidays, and Forgiveness, then moved very rapidly to Murderers, etc. Then someone else decided to do the wrong Thing in another Thread and got Banned!

 

Wake up, People!

 

The Staff has Warned and Warned! They have a Job to do! None of us really want this.

 

Snap out of it! Please?

Let m make my own position clear:

 

I unequivocally oppose capital punishment.

 

I realise other citizens do not agree with me. And I understand certain members raised the issue of amnesty in order to re-instate other members who have fallen on disagreeable terms with the forum.

 

But, given Mr Williams predicament, I thought it irresponsible to not take this opportunity to add my voice to the plea for his clemency. Somehow, that seems more important.

Iain, I fully understand how you feel, we just buried another of our Kids, Exucated in another Country,

But this is not the Thread to Talk about it, Mate!

 

Start up another one for it? I will if you don't!

 

Just let this one get back to what the Author intended? Peace and Good Will!

More important, definately but maybe not for this thread.

 

I had a similar issue on another thread. your points are valid and with good intentions regarding Mr. Williams and its definately is a more important subject then this board and amnesty. Due to that it should not be in this thread. A new one for that purpose should be started. This one has a purpose and should stay on track

 

 

regarding the people you mentioned.... I always believe in second chances. People can and will change. I have changed and everybody here has changed at one point or another. forgiveness is probably the most cherished and hard to find quality in a person (IMO)

 

why not forgive. this does NOT mean forget. Anything that anybody does is a part of that person's fabric and needs to be a building block for that person. But anyone thats asks to come back should be granted forgiveness in my mind.

 

:sparkle: Happy Holiday everyone :sparkle:

Noone have been banned on a whim here at the pit :geezer: Some of those mentioned just cannot behave in a fashion that is acceptable. They just thrive on starting trouble. :blink: One of those mentioned was gone for a while, came back and immediately wrecked havoc at the pit as soon as she started posting again. Sorry but I for one do not miss the uproar they were causing here! :geezer: I have to agree 100% with Tracy, it's pretty peaceful around here these days! :bananaxmas:

Forgiveness is a really difficult trait to be able to embrace.

 

That is not just for the person you might be mentioning but for anyone on this board, anyone in a country and anyone in the world.

 

That's what makes it so special when it's seen.

My understanding is that three elements must be balanced to arrive at what we in the West call justice: Deterence, rehabilitation and retribution. It seems to me that only the latter animates your position.

I have taken various levels of college sociology so I do understand the need for these elements; however, that being said the degree of the crimes he committed warrant more then a slap on the wrist. The spotlight is on him right now, and if they do not make an example of him then it is possible that others will see the lack of punishment and be prone to do the same. I am not questioning whether or not he is rehabilitated, I am questioning the deterence and retribution sections of you example.

That is a pretty sad statement :( Most Americans are good people just like most people in any other country. We must not allow our unfavorable view of the US government taint our view on the American people.

Odd...we "pardon" the White House turkey, but execute a human who might or might not be a killer.
