I only became a Catholic as an adult but I can remember knowing about indulgences as a Lutheran kid. In fact, I had the idea of selling indulgences. Without any authority do do so, in my spare time, carrying no weight in law or in the church, sort of like Al Gore's carbon offsets.
But it's indulgences, Erin, you heathen. You know how sometimes in a box of assorted chocolates, you'll pick one out and find that someone has dented it underneath to see what kind it is? And it wasn't what they wanted so they put it back? Well, condolences are what we give their family if we ever find out who is doing this to perfectly good chocolates.
