I believe that you can hold a person accountable, punish them for their crimes and still be compassionate about it. I am a Christian and my Bible does say to love everyone, not love only the people who are perfect and do no wrong. If that was the case then I couldn't love anyone other than Jesus. I fully believe that this man should receive the harshest penalty the law allows and I am not even sure if that is enough. I also believe he should be removed from any kind of leadership position in any church that he is a part of. And as much as this man needs our prayers, his victim needs our prayers even more because the victims of child molesters serve life sentences.
