" ...makes you realize the Dead Man Walking truly belongs on the shelf in the library in the Fiction category." "Being devout Catholics,'the norm' would be to look to the church for support and healing. Again, this need for spiritual stability was stolen by Sister Prejean."

"I wouldn't have had as much trouble with (Prejean's) views if she would have told the truth ..." " ...(Sr. Prejean) based her book on what was in I guess a defense file and what (rapist/murderer) Robert Willie telling her." " ... she's trying to mislead people in the book. And that's something that she's going have to work out with herself." "(Sr. Prejean's) certainly not after giving anybody spiritual advice to try to save their soul."
