It is rather peculiar to ask for forgiveness from a (imaginary) third party and not from the person you offended or victimized.

Silly Indians, the only way to get the sin out is with the blood of a particular ancient Jew … and club soda.
"We cannot have a just society that applies the principle of accountability to the powerless and the principle of forgiveness to the powerful. This is the America in which we currently reside."
Came upon this sign in Ottawa. What pisses me off is this convenient rule of Christianity: Christians are forgiven.
That means, they can be bigoted ignorant, misogynistic, homophobic, and moronic a-holes Monday-Saturday.
Then they get their “I’m a horrible twit-of-a-human” conscience cleaned by the blood of Jesus Christ on Sunday.
[covers mouth and coughs, but clearly coughs the words “total bullshit”]
How nice it must be to just decide for yourself, that you’ve been forgiven. If I hurt someone, I must receive forgiveness from that person in order to “be forgiven”. Christianity bypasses the victim and allows you to forgive yourself in the name of an imaginary 3rd party.
And you would get to decide if he’s forgiven you! What a great deal.
You could always ask the actual victims of your transgressions for forgiveness…
