POPE FRANCIS SAYS, "FORGIVE". THE BIBLE SAYS, "FORGIVE 70 TIMES 7."




Forgive and forgive and forgive,
"Seventy times seven times".
That means, 
Never stop forgiving.

And crime will grow and grow and grow,
And the innocent will suffer and suffer and suffer.

Criminals laugh at the law,
And sneer at their victims.

And the Church says,
"Forgive and forgive and forgive"
And people who do not want to confront truth,
And take responsible action,
Contemplate their belly buttons 
And pretend forgiving feels good.

What fools these mortals be !
