while Brinkin's needs to be prosecuted for these horrible crimes, I do not believe wishing him dead is truly an appropriate response. Comments as this only fuel the charges that conservatives/christians hate gays; justice needs to be served but hatred is also wrong.

BALONEY;the damage done by these pedophiles to the children lasts the rest of their life,and then to other children,it's effects ripple though society. We need to send a message to KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF the children,and the best way is to execute the pedophiles. They can't be cured,prison is too good for them,and we CANNOT allow them back into society,not even home arrest.(also too good for them)
there's a big difference between flashing,etc. and actual sexual congress,and the sentence should recognize that.

actually the molestation and sodmy of a child is rape and according to the word of God rapists should be put to death. I dont know if posessing pictures of the rape makes you an accomplice.

Umm...you're understating the crime here. These are babies that were violently raped! Referring to this as merely "exposing a child prematurely to sex" is like saying killing a child is "expsing her prematurely to the terminal state."

What does this have to do with gays .Are you suggesting that all gays are child molesters? Also I'm conservative/christian and I don't hate gays but I do hate baby molesters.

As conservative as I am, DHulme, I think your sentiment here is morally wrong and far too common.

Exposing a child prematurely to sex is damaging to the child, but it is not the same as murdering the child. The death penalty is overkill (pun not intended but welcomed.)

I suspect the common overreaction to child molestation is due to the general, cultural under-reaction to every other moral failure. We have to compensate somewhere. But the correct answer is to acknowledge the serious moral consequences of the other things (adult sexual incontinence, greed, envy, etc.,) not to kill some poor Uncle Ernie unnecessarily.

gblair, I understand your point in the abstract and I could agree with you if I could just get past one fact:

The infants in Brinkin's "portfolio" could have been one of my children - or one of yours.

gblair, Who in thehell cares about charges the Liberals and gays bring against Conservatives!! ? ?
Quit falling into the traps the PC Liberals set for you!

Hate? ? You damned right! If it were up to me I would torture the S.O.B. to death by skinning 1 inch strip of skin from his body!

According to published reports, when Larry Brinkin was arrested two weeks ago, the police found “images of year-old infants subjected to sodomy and oral sex, and perverse racial comments (Brinkin’s email: ‘I loved especially the 2 year old n----- getting nailed. Hope you’ll continue so I can see what the little blond b---- is going to get. White Power! White Supremacy! White D--- Rules!’).” Yet the media has barely reported this terribly disturbing incident.

But, you ask, who was Larry Brinkin? He was “a central figure in the gay rights movement,” a man who was so influential that,...
