Subject: RE: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
Fine as far as it goes pete. But the assumption would be that there is something to be forgiven for?

I am convinced of the value of, say, chaplaincy in hospitals as the comfort for those who find comfort in their faith can aid recovery or alleviate anxiety in palliative care. Much better than medicines and in some ways is related to feeling better once you see a doctor rather than once the tablets actually start working.

That is not the same as seeking forgiveness for something not your fault. That is what I don't understand.
