It's a common refrain when someone gets caught saying or doing something really foolish, wicked, or absurd; to try and point out "all the good" that person had done. My brother did that once for a junior high school book report. He told about a man who seems to have done a lot for his country: he restored the currency, brought it out of an economic depression, restored his military from decades of neglect, funded the arts, restored his country's industries to great esteem, and re-established normal, respectful diplomatic relations with his neighbors where one-sided domination of his nation by others had been the case.
Then he pulled the book from behind his back. Somehow we don't remember that man for all the good that could be said about him, and for good reason. Just because someone has done something commendable doesn't excuse him from responsibility for the mistakes he's made and the sins he's committed. Romans 6:23.
