The American hostage was killed, will his family be as forgiving towards his captors? This is religious tolerance at the extreme, Will the kidnappers really give a flying f**k if this old man forgives them?Surely the kidnappers will face trial even if the idiot is so forgiving? Winds me up no end.

slaphead69 said:The Kember situation is different to the Walker one, she managed to make her forgiveness sound scathing and came across as a very proud and good person while ensuring her sons killers were dealt with properly. Kember however sounds like the kind of misguided idiot who would forgive you if you murdered his entire family. Theres only so much forgiving, turning other cheeks etc before enough is enough. Murderers, kidnappers etc will not be stopped or rethink their actions just because an old man forgives them, and if he is saying that his religion is not as barbaric as theirs then he is adding fuel to the fire.
