Suffer the little children to come unto me. That command can be from the lips of Jesus or the many pedophiles out there. In Jesus’ mouth there is a sweetness. Jerry Sandusky had a different line reading of the thought. In his trial we heard the children came and they suffered.
If we are inclined to compassion it must err on the side of those young men who sobbed through their remembrances. Lives beyond those children have been ruined. And still there are dark confessions unrevealed by many who came in trust, and left with their innocence wet upon the floor of rooms less than holy.
When does a man step over a line? who is there who will not look away but straight into the eyes of that man and say:”Enough.”
