Steve, that is heartbreaking. Bible thumpers try to make everyone feel guilty for wanting rapists and murderers and child molesters to be severely punished.
The bible says we must forgive our enemies seventy-times seven times. What it means is to never stop forgiving them. And those who have been indoctrinated by that ancient philosophy find so many ways to prevent justice from being done.
So our society is full of thieves and liars and rapists and child molesters and murderers and our so-called justice system just keeps helping the criminals - instead of helping the innocent and victims.
The rapes and murders will never stop as long as "nice people" love criminals more than the innocent; as long as "nice people" keep us all waiting for death and heaven before we can have justice; as long as "nice people" keep us waiting for God to do what we should be doing.
Justice, only justice shalt thou pursue - Deuteronomy 16:20.
