'Mr. Apology' seeks anonymous confessions


UPI News Service, 03/17/2013 

A Brooklyn man said he is calling himself "Mr. Apology" and encouraging New Yorkers to call his hot line and apologize for their wrongdoings.

"I think forgiveness is a very powerful thing -- and not everyone has an outlet for that," the 37-year-old organizer, who requested anonymity, told the New York Post. "Some people can't talk to family, don't have religion or maybe they don't even know how to forgive themselves."

The organizer has publicized his hotline on signs, which say: "Criminals Blue collar, white collar, you have wronged people. It is to people that you must apologize, not to the state, not to God. Get your misdeeds off your chest! Call APOLOGY *67 (347) 201-2446."

Callers are asked not to identify themselves, as the anonymous organizer is planning on playing the apologies to the public, the Post said.

The project follows the work of the original Mr. Apology, Allan Bridge, who set up a confessional hot line called the Apology Line in 1980.
