all apologiesA group of Arab Muslims has created a website apologizing to the people of Norway and Denmark for the disgusting riots and embassy attacks by other Muslims that followed the publication of some massively shitty cartoons by the Jyllands-Posten. And I say: It's about time! We all owe an obligation to humanity to apologize for the actions of all of our co-religionists.
Having been baptised Catholic and raised in the Protestant church, this means bad news for me! This may take a few years, but I'm going to try to knock out a few every day. Okay, let's get started:
I, Chris Bray, personally apologize to all ancestors of people harmed by the Inquisition.
I, Chris Bray, personally apologize to anyone who was harmed by Eric Rudolph. That guy was a total jerk. I formally diassociate myself from him. (Notarized affidavit upon request.)
I, Chris Bray, personally apologize for Martin Luther hammering a nail into a perfectly nice church door. (I'm conflicted about this one -- given my background, I guess I also apologize to myself.)
I, Chris Bray, personally apologize for the deaths of the "praying Indians" of seventeenth-century New England. And Acoma Pueblo! Dude, that stuff with the right foot was way, way harsh. My bad, seriously. I'm sorry. We shouldn't have done that.
Wow, this is rough! Well, I'm out of time. More tomorrow. Until then, be assured that I am ashamed and contrite. We mean well, really. We just get carried away sometimes.
