Gays To Be Pardoned For Doing Nothing Wrong

From THE BBC:

Proposals to introduce new legislation which would pardon gay men convicted under historical gross indecency laws will be brought forward "in due course", the government has said. The so-called Alan Turing law could see thousands of men pardoned for crimes of which they would be innocent today.

Personally, I think historical pardons are of no use whatsoever unless those who are alive today (especially those in influential institutions such as the Church of England) believe that those being pardoned were innocent of any offence.
