How Do We Fight Child Porn?
I just finished watching a news story about Melissa Huckabee, the woman who is accused of raping and murdering Sandra Cantu in Tracy, California. I also recently saw a program about child pornography on Oprah. In that program it showed a map, lit up like a Christmas Tree. On that map were people throughout the United States downloading child pornography, there were thousands. I felt sick to my stomach.
I think all too often when the word pornography comes up we (Ok, maybe it’s just me) think of soft-core porn like the Playboy magazines young boys would hide underneath their beds. But, child pornography is not like that at all. Child pornography are children as young as 3 and 4 including babies being forcibly and brutally raped or forced to participate in bestiality or otherwise horrific acts. It’s almost too much to imagine and I believe because of the nature of these crimes most people just turn their heads, close their eyes and ignore the situation, hoping it will go away. It’s NOT going away!
Oprah’s solution is to put an RFID tracking chip in all the child molesters so that they can be tracked and watched, it’s called Senate Bill 1738. I’m against this bill because I am against the RFID chip (another post will be forthcoming about that). My solution is a little more permanent. I think that repeat child molesters (by repeat I mean more than once) should be executed. And, to tell you the truth, I’m not so dead set on the repeat aspect. I think anyone who could torture a child in such a way should not be allowed to be in the land of the living. Not only would this stop the repetitive nature of this crime, but it would also send a message loud and clear to anyone considering such a horrible thing.
Jesus said that whoever offends a child, that it would be better for them to have a millstone tied to his neck and to be thrown into the sea. We simply must protect the innocent; we simply must purge our land of these unspeakable atrocities and of the monsters that commit them.
