"Father forgive them they know not what they do."

from Jefferson Bethke – Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus (Spoken Word) on Rap Genius

Meaning

Luke 23:24
In spite of Jesus being sent to the cross by his disciple, Judas, and highly regarded religious rulers of his day, he cried out for God the Father to forgive them for ignorantly sending him to die. Jesus never committed a sin according to Hebrews 4:15, yet he was condemned to die. The people who sent him to the cross did not understand that they were killing God’s precious son. John 3:16
