     And so we stumble over one man named Judas Iscariot.  We point out that he's become a traitor.  But he converted and returned 30 silver coins to the priests and he said "I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood”.  So he did convert.
     We don’t rebuke Peter for denying Jesus three times in the Annas’ and Caiaphas’ courtyard in the presence of a servant girl.  And even if we rebuke him we immediately add: “But he cried.”
     We don’t rebuke the apostles for not being under the cross, for not being at the funeral, for the fact that Jesus had to appear risen from the dead for them to convert. 
     But as far as Judas is concerned we will not forget.  And we'll not forgive.  Even though he did convert.
