Sin is wicked, but when recognized as sin, man can repent, seek and receive redemption. But if the worldview fails to recognize sin for what it is, or worse, celebrates the sin as some form of grotesque virtue, repentance is not sought and redemption is lost. Even more concerning, this worldview does not limit itself to a solitary sin which hurts the perpetrator alone. Instead, it eagerly embraces and encourages a multitude of other sins which visit their wicked results upon others. ( Roman Catholic Bishop Stanislav Shyrokoradiuk of Kharkiv-Zaporizha)

Even the Left Recognizes Dissembling

Will the Real Sonia Sotomayor Please Stand Up? » The Foundry

By now probably everyone has seen this video, but it bears remembering. This was her in a relaxed setting with her contemporary peers - a setting when one's true feelings and beliefs have a way of coming to the surface. This is the real Sonia Sotomayor, and her dissembling before the Senate Judiciary Committee is so obvious and blatant that even her former supporters are surprised.

The words of liberal Georgetown law professor and Critical Legal Studies cofounder Mike Seidman (in the linked piece above) are especially worth remembering: “I was completely disgusted by Judge Sotomayor’s testimony today. If she was not perjuring herself, she is intellectually unqualified to be on the Supreme Court. If she was perjuring herself, she is morally unqualified.”
