OK. Is this tagline any better?
What's interesting is that you and I have more in common than you know, and I'm not out to get you...just out to get you to think.
We do not disagree on the main point that child molesters are pretty much given over to their depravity and need to be separated in whatever way from polite society forever.
I was merely toying with the idea of permanent, prominent "branding" for the loathesome creatures that are let out of jail. Personally, I don't think they should ever be let out of jail, because their desire for more and more perverted sensory input cannot be quenched. But in the practical world, I doubt that will ever be the case.
But, in observing the effect that "branding" has had on one abuser, I'm inclined to want to promote more of that sort of thing for the present. The abuser was shamed and terrified for his life, just like his victim. It fits the crime as well as can be hoped for if we're going to let them into free society.
IF (see the "if"?) a pedophile CAN repent, "branding" might just be more charitable to his eternal soul, a last effort at redemption, so to speak. It's a chance to bear his sin publicly, bear his shame publicly, and have to prove his sincerity daily, hourly, minute by minute.
There, but for the Grace of God, none of us dare go. If I were branded for my sins, I'd be a better person, alas!
