Re: George Neumayr’s Jacked Up:
We the people who allow this to take place will certainly face
the Lord someday and it is going to be a bad day at black rock
for those that hale these perverts as gods and wonderful people,
they are sick in the head. Period. There is no excuse for
molesting a child, and one needs to ask me if a child grows out
of molestation, I am raising a child today that was a victim and
I can tell you it affects their very souls. There is no erasing
any of it, only helping them deal with the fact they were nothing
more than victims. I would rather stand before God and face all
that I have done, but if I had of molested a child I would have
it that the mountains would fall on me and hide me, there will be
no hiding place. Jackson, for whatever it is worth, has died and
he is in his glory and will be one place or the other, I cannot
say if he is in hell or heaven, only God knows that, but most
assuredly M. Jackson knows. I condemn no one to Hell, there is
only one who has that power.

KNOXING ON THIN ICE
Re: Re: Michael Davis’s letter (under “School of Soft Knox”) in Reader Mail’s Quitting Morality, Losing Elections:
It is entirely true that criticizing the Pope and other “Catholic leaders” does not make one “anti-Catholic”—-necessarily. But it is one thing to disagree and dispute another’s logic and quite another to throw fiery hatchets because their centuries old tradition in theology will not go where you want it to go. Agree with the Catholic Church or not, the Church consistently has been very careful in explaining how She comes out where She does in matters of sexual ethics. As a Protestant, I don’t agree with the Catholic opposition to birth control. Yet, one has to admit the Church’s thinking on the matter wasn’t invented ex nihilo in the twentieth century and has a long pedigree of related antecedent opinions.
Of course, this, as you say, being a constitutional republic, one
is perfectly free to be “anti-Catholic”. Whether being
anti-Catholic is honorable or not is another question. The
problem is Knox’s appointment to the President’s Advisory Council
on Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Is it wise politics
or policy to take a man into one’s office who has such an animus
against one of the major (if not the major) private providers of
charitable services to the poor and needy? What does that say to
the very people whose confidence a President is trying to win?
Mr. Knox be known for many things; but it is apparent being
diplomatic is not one of them.
