One of my daughters thinks her father should be excused for the cruel, illogical, mean-spirited, lyin/cheatin/stealin things he did because, as a Mormon, he was brainwashed and she considers him "obviously mentally ill" after he said he wanted a Jesus for his own world in heaven.
I told her I couldn't forgive him for some of the harm he did, which is still so painful I can't even talk about it. But a pass because he's mentally ill? I don't see Mormonism in the DSM-IV.
