It seems to me the only person you can forgive is yourself.
"Why does forgiveness irritate me so much?" I ask Chuck.
"Because it's the ultimate act of passive aggression," he says.
"Because it keeps sin alive," my sister says.

Reading this makes me feel vindicated.
There is nothing quite so rankling as unsolicited forgiveness.
