Once again, I've been lax in posting to this here blog. Dunno if you've missed me or not, but here I am.
After reading Preacherman's essay, I'm stuck with yet another theological question: God has forgiven someone. Does that mean that I have to as well?
I'm referring to his hearing the confessions of a serial rapist. In my own peculiar moral world, the only crimes that can not be justified are rape and genocide. "I swear, your honor, it was fuck or be fucked! How was I to know that no meant no?" "Geez, your honor -- I had to order the extermination of all those people. Why is that so hard to understand?"
Rape should be punished by life in prison without parole. Solitary confinement. As I've said earlier, I don't support the death penalty, but I do support torture as a punishment. Pain is the only built-in learning mechanism that humans have. Bring back public floggings. You'll see a drop in crime. Guaran-damn-teed.
Rapists and murderers deserve the most heinous tortures you can dish out. Skin them alive and then make them live in a plastic bubble in a zoo. Things like that.
Serial killers/rapists are another story all together. You can't rehab something like that. They should be removed from society and studied. Find out exactly what the hell went wrong in their minds that made them think that eating brains or fucking asian women would be a good course of action.
Granted, I've never actually met anyone who's done these things, and yes, Christ may have died for their sins. Does that mean that I have to say "You are forgiven?" Or, can I tell them that Christ loves them, and then shut the cage door?
