"Mercy is a response to the repentant. It does not change the unrepentant. It often hardens them. Technically, mercy extends to sin of whatever kind or species. But mercy does not forgive. God in His mercy forgives. Mercy is contingent on the sinner’s acknowledgement that he is responsible for something objectively wrong in his acts or thoughts." (Fr. James V. Schall S. J.)

Did Those on the Left Not Hear Joe Biden?
Joe Biden calls the Republican party a bunch of terrorists on the very day that Gabby Giffords is casting her first vote in Congress since being shot in the head (after which Obama had given a speech calling for civility, a new tone, and no more martial metaphors), and the Left wing media gives him (Biden) yet another pass. Such media bias should upset every fair minded citizen, and it got National Review's Johah Goldberg more than upset. He spells it out in this post to The Corner on National Review Online.
