This is a matter of perverse appetite that is so far beyond control that it is unredeemable. The ability to be compassionate to a person in this position should not humanly attainable. And for those who argue that it would be God's will to extend such compassion, then let us agree by sending them to meet Him forthrightly.
Let us return to the public, the benefit to the human psyche, of putting these offenders to death in a brutal and agonizing fashion before the world's TV cameras for all to see. In doing so, we send the resolute message that there is a God, and that it is always better to meet Him on His terms, rather than yours. In scarring our now hardened hearts with the shock of what happens to wrongdoers, perhaps we can avoid the pain that comes with the shock to the innocent of the wrongdoer's actions.
Let Tim Robbins and Jesse Jackson hold the vigil and weep for the pain that the molester will experience. We know they care more for the cause of their agenda rather than the pain of the child who will be stunted mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and perhaps physically – because someone they trusted made their 18-month-old body their own personal pleasure tool.
Determine the facts as to the matter of guilt and let justice be done swiftly.
And let it be so for the sake of our children we seek to protect, and for the restraint it might encourage in others whose proclivity to evil might be stopped.
Try them, show them, hang them – and let the people learn.
