Osler on Mercy

Mark Osler
Prof. Mark Osler notes President Obama's recent grant of 22 commutations of sentence was a "remarkable event." But, he adds:
It befits the morality of our nation that the pardon power be used. The framers of the Constitution intended it, and it is the rare moral system, religious or not, that shuts out any access to mercy. In a Christian-majority nation, it should matter to many that Jesus granted clemency (to the woman about to be stoned) and was wrongfully denied it (by Pilate). 
To which we say, "Amen." See full editorial here.
