It is said that someone once asked Martin Luther, "Why do you preach salvation by faith alone, week after week after week?"

"Because," Luther replied, "You forget it week after week after week."

In that spirit, it's time to bring back once again this much-needed, and clearly forgotten, scene from A Man for All Seasons.

There are two sides to the rule of law as it applies to politics. One is made explicit in that excerpt: Only if your adversary has broken a law can he be taken to court. The other is left implicit: If your ally has broken a law, do not resist his being taken to court. Both are equally important and worth a reminder.
