When it comes to sex offenders, you are so frighteningly off course that I'm almost afraid to say anything to you. Your help in "prison ministry" immediately puts you in jeopardy.
A sex offender is also a pathological liar. His lies have been formulated before he commits a crime, and they are intricate and involved. A sex offender will tell you "it only happened once" (the one they are in prison for) and they will also tell you that they have "gone to guidance therapy" for it (they haven't because they "don't need it") and they will tell you that prison was a "good experience" for them, but not for the reasons you want to believe.
"Bad judgement" is believing these "people" are capable of "change." They aren't, because they don't want to change. There are no "appropriate ways" to deal with child molesters. Ever. They start when they are young, and they start WITH the young. They use coercion and authority and guilt to achieve their goal of the almighty orgasm, which controls their lives.
If you have girl children, you had better listen up and keep an eye on their every movement. If you have boys, you had better listen twice as hard. Do NOT excuse sex offenders! They are who they are because that is who and what they want to be.
Amen! The worst ones to watch out for are the ones that caught religion. People should never fall for that lie. Child molesters are master manipulators and will use even the bible to fool people. I am not happy about suicide BUT parents have a right to know in order to protect their children.
But there are some boys getting charged with with sex offenses that are 18 and their girlfriend is under 18. I know of one right now, the girl was a runaway at 15, the boy was ignorant and vulnerable trying to help, the 15 year old girl was a slut, and parents when they found their "precious" daughter, pressed charges. The 18 year old is being charged with a sex offense.
If he is convicted, he wiil stay labeled a sex offender for the rest of his life!!
Teach your 18 year old boys to stay far away from under 18 girls, and from my experience some of them are the predators!!!!
So you're saying that NOBODY EVER straightens themselves out? I find that a little hard to believe. And if it's the truth, why don't we just put them in a leper colony kind of place. Really, what is your solution?
THANK YOU , THANK YOU , I see the "hand wringers" as total ENABLERS ,...as Bob Grant has said over and over , "they have served notice on society that they are not fit to live among us" ,you folks without kids , don't tell me to take chances where the odds are known to be slim to none, OK?
