“you can get high and get laid in a 6′ × 8′ prison cell”

The parody of liberty is found in the libertarian image of the fornicating pot smoker — but you can get high and get laid in a 6′ × 8′ prison cell. There is one who defiantly cries out that he wants more liberty — so that he can enslave himself ever more tightly in chains he has forged himself. But no tyrant has ever been successfully resisted by cluster of lotus eaters, however big the cluster might be. Virtuous people cannot be kept as slaves, and an effete and self-indulgent people are made for slavery. It is their native habitat.

“victims . . . victims . . . victims”

When you have a situation like this, the court system has a policy of keeping victims’ names out of public knowledge to protect the names and reputations of victims. I would have announced the situation, if it was just Steven and no victims. . . . My interest is in keeping victims and their families protected.

In the Matter of Serial Pedophile Steven Sitler

What the victims don’t know can’t hurt them

Jimmy Savile

On December 23, 2015, the Court granted Steven Sitler permission to reestablish contact with some of his victims and their families, if these people so desire; and the Court also ordered that the parents of these victims do not have to inform their children — the victims — that Steven Sitler molested them as a precondition of reestablishing contact.

“Refusal to discipline amounts to hatred and is simply a slow, cruel way for a man to disown his son, clearly marking him out as illegitimate.”

The father here disciplines the son in whom he delights. Refusal to discipline amounts to hatred and is simply a slow, cruel way for a man to disown his son, clearly marking him out as illegitimate. True discipline is the foundation of respect — respect that will last a lifetime. . . . A neglectful abdicating father despises his son.

Offender Family Contact Rules

Father Hunger

Father Hunger

This list essentially prohibits Sitler from acting as an authority figure in his child’s life. He cannot initiate contact with his son. He cannot show physical affection to his son. He cannot discipline his son. He cannot do any normal parental activity with his son without violating this code of conduct, because Idaho recognizes that Sitler, along with all other fixated pedophiles, is a constant threat to his child’s wellbeing.

“DuPont’s Finest”

We like the word authentic, but we detest the reality. A fading beauty in Beverly Hills walks into an upscale bistro, her skin stretched out with botox, her breasts as fine a pair as DuPont could make them, her hair the color of nothing found on earth, and yet she double checks with the waiter (twice) to be sure that her salad will have hormone-free chicken. Why? Either because she is committed to going all natural, which would not seem to be the case, or because her table is only big enough for one hormone queen. She is insisting that the chicken be the authentic one.

Scripture doesn’t say, “If you meet your enemy’s ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again — unless they’re an intolerista.” Continue reading

On Repentance: The B.T.K. Killer & Steven Sitler

A Corruption of Justice Primer

Idaho’s Execution Chamber

“A repentant man who had done these things would evidence his repentance in his whole-hearted desire to be executed. . . . If he does not do these things, if his declared repentance is only an emotional sorrow that does not bear the marks of true repentance, then he should be excommunicated from his church.” — Douglas Wilson Continue reading

“But when we are dealing with young children who are abused by adults . . . the penalty for those guilty of the crime should be death.”

Our civil law includes the category of statutory rape, which is certainly a biblical concept. If someone under the age of adult responsibility is forcibly taken away (whether for sexual purposes or not), the crime is a species of kidnapping, which in Scripture deserves the death penalty. Part of the reason why a society should have wise and godly men for judges is that they must determine in such cases whether the one raped is almost of age. But when we are dealing with young children who are abused by adults (pederasty, child porn, etc.) the penalty for those guilty of the crime should be death.
