Go and sin no more

Reminds me a bit on the conditions for absolution when someone is "divorced and remarried" ...

Back when I converted from Lutheranism, close to an Anglicanism such as that of Tony Palmer, this is a conversation I had over and over again:

Prot: The Catholic Church is so judgemental. If you are divorced you can't go to Communion.

Me: If you are divorced and remarried, sure. But Christ also said the situation was adultery.

Prot: Yes, but he forgave the adulteress.

Me: Indeed, with the words go and sin no more.
