Is forgiveness justifiable?
So I was thinking about the whole religion and behaviour arguments I've seen and then came across this BBC article.
Basically some guy shot a store clerk for being Muslim [also killed two others], was put on death row, and now the survivor is advocating that he not get the death penalty and be an "educator against ignorance."
So how far should forgiveness go? Should he be forgiven and be "an educator against ignorance" or just be executed?
I would like to note, that I don't think "forgiven" means released from jail.
What motivates people to forgive [the victim] and change [the shooter]?
