Response to IrishAyes (Reply #4)

5. False accusations are one of the worst injustices I can imagine.

Take comfort in the knowledge that Christ was falsely accused and suffered for it.

Cardinal Bernadin, who was the archbishop of my diocese before being appointed to Chicago, was accused of sexual perversions by a man who later recanted. I always felt extreme sympathy for him.

And, as we have discovered, there have been many false imprisonments, and even executions, of innocent persons under our imperfect judicial system.

So consider yourself in good company, Irish ayes, re the false accusation of lying.
