Many good points I had been weighting and new ones too.

I see TFI as a criminal organization with business ramifications into many areas that fringe with the religious market. I also see TFI as a criminal organization that is supported by many well being people who are oblivious to the results of their actions. These people are those who have no idea that oversexualizing children is wrong, that can't discern what adult predatory behavior is, that child molestation is wrong, etc.

I am not saying that these people are molesting children but their ignorance supports an environment that not only facilitates but promotes child abuse.

I have had many otherwise nice Christian people telling me that people with some form of 'minor' crimes should be given an opportunity. I might agree with them except that in the case of a Family member, if they are not seeking for that opportunity, they have no idea that they even have a choice.

I am not sure that 'a couple of years' in prison is the best medicine. I wish I knew the answer. Thank you for your comments.
