Letter: Letting the offender go free

To the editor:

I am writing in response to the letter from Mr. Thomas (”Campaign and ad accountability,” the Times, Tuesday, Nov. 12).

Mr. Thomas, you are wrong sir. There was a man who stood up and took the charges of another, and paid the ultimate price for it, his very life.

It was said of him, by the accused: “Oh love so deep; the offended one dies, that the offender may go free!”

Those words were voiced, in 1650 by the offender, Francis Quarles. The man that took upon himself the offenses of the accused was, Jesus of Nazareth.

I just thought you might like to know.
