It is an offense to give sin the name of a virtue, or another acceptable name.
For example, when a person spreads some heresy, he says that it is the right concept of religion. The person who teaches his friend gambling calls it a kind of amusement or entertainment. The person who causes another to commit adultery, says that this is a cure for repression and its harmful effects. The person who assists someone to evade taxes, says that this is mere avoidance of the exaggeration and oppression of the tax-assessing commissions... etc. The devil -in the offense- does not fight openly.
