Justice? January 16, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — reneewong @ 9:52 pm

Every day, women in developing (though what they are developing, I really can’t see), non-Christian countries are raped, then charged with adultery, and then stoned to death. Or, abandoned by their husbands, they set themselves on fire as widows do in their culture, as they too have lost their husbands, though not to death. These women, because they are not saved, will burn in hell. And so too will their husbands, brothers, fathers, uncles, their accusers, judges, executioners. The innocent and the guilty. The victim in inferno that began with life, the perpetrator in the same inferno that begins with death. Is this justice?
