Here’s the letter I sent firstname.lastname@example.org:
Please mention to Brit that his knowledge of Buddhism leaves enough to
be desired that he probably shouldn’t opine thereon.
I’ll grant that Buddhism doesn’t provide a transcendental entity which
can forgive sin, but then Buddhism doesn’t actually provide the
concept of sin either; we replace it with “things which lead to a
peaceful life, causing no avoidable harm to others” and, of course,
High on that list is “avoid sexual misconduct” which can be translated
to “know when to keep your pants zipped.”
Having no concept of transcendent forgiveness, we replace it with the
idea that having harmed someone, you should make amends and reconsider
your behavior in the future.
You tell me which is more productive: being Forgiven of Sin, or making
amends and remedying your faults?
