Nope..no posts to delete...I say what I mean and mean what I say...You have no clue what "lot in life" these people were handed to put them in the position they're in...There's a ton of crap out there that will make people do things they feel they have to...I agree stealing is wrong 1000% and they should pay for what they done and let the punishment fit the crime, however it is totally wrong to kick a person when they're down, you think Jesus would do the same thing ???...As a matter of fact if memory serves me right there were a couple of thieves hanging by Jesus's side from judgemental people such as yourself...Correct me if I'm wrong here but didn't Jesus forgive them ???<quoted text>Never claimed to be perfect, Parm. Regardless of what lot in life I was handed, I'd never lower myself to thievery. There are so many social programs out there to help people, there's no need for anyone to steal from others. You may think it's ok, but I do not.
Don't you have some posts to delete over at BCVoice or something?

Where in any of my posts did it indicate that the punishment shouldn't fit the crime? Where in any of my posts did I indicate we should kick them while they're down?
What my posts said was that if Kerri feels so passionate about these people, why don't she bail them out? Heck, if you're so passionate about it, why don't you go bail them out?
BTW - what about cutting off the hands that steal? Isn't that somewhere in your God's bible?

I did look in the mirror Parm and the reflection was not anything like your son. You should be dealing with problems at home rather than trying to tell others how to live their lives. I stand by my original post. I would not stoop to the level of stealing others things.

Yes...he forgave them, but he didn't commute their sentences (even though he had the power to do so). As a parent, when my kids do wrong and are punished, they will always apologize and I always forgive them. But they have learned that my forgiveness does not mean they will not be punished for their transgressions.
Far too many people have lost this distinction. One can argue that lengthy imprisonment may not fit the crime, but it is damn site more humane than cutting off the hands of a thief.
My personal feeling is that the stocks were the best way of dealing with petty criminal behavior. Nothing like instilling a sense of humility in the transgressors to have them see the errors of their ways. It was cost effective and not cruel. Unfortunately, I feel that too many people today are absolutely shameless, so the stocks would not be nearly as effective today.

I agree, you should not confuse my kindness for weakness. The crime committed should always be paid for by a penalty. Accepting ones apology is always best if it is indeed heartfelt. If one apologizes because they are made to then, it most times does not come from the heart.
