Did you see this court scene yesterday when 2 teenage star football players were convicted of rape in Ohio? Right on que they started crying and telling the victim, her family, and anyone who would listen how sorry they were.
That's the way it always works. People seem to find remorse as soon as they're arrested, and certainly after being found guilty, right before sentencing.
A little suspicious? If they had gone home after the rape, felt guilty, and then turned themselves in, I might believe their pleadings of remorse. It's never too late to get forgiveness, I understand, but how come people only realize they've done something bad AFTER they're caught doing it?
Remember this scene from a few days ago when hundreds of thousands of people crowded St. Peter's Square looking/hoping for white smoke to come pouring from the little stovepipe at the Vatican? Here's what I want to know: Where were the porta-potties?
Did they have a couple of hundred just a block away out of sight? I mean, wouldn't that be considered "tending to the needs of the flock"? I'd think that should be #2 (pardon the pun) right behind "salvation".
Does anyone but me think of things like this? It's a helluva lot of responsibility I carry. ;)
