You Did What Was In Your Heart

Luke Ford writes:

I just watched all four episodes of the BBC drama North & South, set in 19th Century England.

It was very romantic and charming and traditional. Reminded me a bit of Orthodox Judaism, until these goyim started excusing each other’s bad behavior with the phrase, “You did what was in your heart.”

Oy, how I hated that phrase growing up. When somebody would do something bloody stupid, all the good Christians around me would excuse his behavior — if they were so inclined — with the phrase, “He did what was in his heart.”

What nonsense! Who cares if he did what was in his heart? If I did what was in my heart, I’d be doing a great deal of fornicating and very little else.
