    You can’t deny his personality and character were subpar most of his life. Not the kind of man any parent could be proud of.

    Yet Oskar Schindler risked his life to save over 1,200 people in WW2.

    Should his shoddy lifestyle cancel out the good he did?

    Think about that before overlooking the good people do just because you don’t like their character.

    I believe the good he did to save all those people easily cancels out any bad things about him. He MORE than redeemed himself.

    Agree.

    However, Trump is not Schindler.

    The moral of the story is we all have flaws. But the good we do should be kept in mind.

    Yet the Founding Fathers are attacked for owning slaves, politicians are attacked for wearing black face when young, etc etc.

    King David had his friend killed so he could have his wife. We are all flawed creatures.

    Yep. I believe the only entity in our universe that is without flaws is God.
