The fisk to end all fisks

Mark Shea at Catholic and Enjoying It! has posted a brilliant fisk of the 51st Psalm. Inspired by some unimpressed responses to Mel Gibson's apology for his recent drunken tirade against the Jews. Gibson made a good, manly apology, but many people think it's not enough. Mark gives us an idea of how they would have greeted King David's apology after the Bathsheba Incident. My favourite part:

7 True, I was born guilty, a sinner, even as my mother conceived me.

So much for "taking full responsibility". Now he blames his mother for his sins. The guy has no shame at all. Can anyone here say with a straight face that David didn't deliberately intend every last detail of what he did when he stole Uriah's wife, got her pregnant, tried to figure out a way to make it look like Uriah's kid, and failing that, deliberately ordered his abandonment on the battlefield in order to murder him? But because he's the great *David* and not some loser like Saul, some people actually defend this "apology" instead of facing up to what kind of man he *really* is and admitting what is *really* in his heart. How's the Kool-Aid, guys?
