Forgiveness is the most transformative act a person can undertake. That it's perhaps the most difficult stands to reason. It's also one of the distinguishing factors that separates Christianity from other religions. So you would think that in a very Christian nation, and especially the home of so many rabidly self-proclaiming Christians, forgiveness would be the very first order of business, wielded with shameless pride. BUT WE'RE NOT EVEN TALKING ABOUT THAT! I'm talking about the simple act of praying for a bad guy (who is still one of God's children).
If real Christians can't follow their own "beliefs" then at the very least I hope non-Christians are smart enough to be able to tell the real followers of Jesus from those who just like the brand name. Hey, maybe the rapture DID happen but nobody noticed because nobody qualified!
