I have always been thinking of the different ways in which Christianity is taught, and whenever I find one way that makes it a wider blessing than any other, I cling to that as the truest--I mean that which takes in the most good of all kinds, and brings in the most people as sharers in it. It is surely better to pardon too much, than to condemn too much.

"Better to pardon too much"
Sadly, the "religious right" folks don't see it that way at all. They seem to prefer to err on the side of condemnation and I see that as genuinely tragic.
