An Unforgiving Distrustful Nation

Dude, what's with all the ruckus over Mel Gibson drunkenly spewing off anti-semitic remarks? Yeah, that was stupid, yeah that was detrimental to his stature and his career. But let's think about this. Has Mr. Gibson ever done any Jew harm? Has Mr. Gibson ever shunned working with Jews? (He's working for Hollywood, I remind you). Has he also not apologized for his remarks, and tried to make amends? Then why do we have so many bloggers pouncing on him?

For example, Andrew Sullivan alone has 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 posts just in the last few days on Gibson's outburst.

The pile-on comes from left-wing blogs too. Here are all those from Huffington Post on Mel: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 13 14 15 16.

What has happened to my nation? Have we forgotten how to forgive our trespassers or offenders? I think we have much work to do in our nation, it seems.
