Jesus wept ...

... when He first heard the (supposed) 16-yr. old girl's distress call to 'authorities' some three weeks ago.

... when He watched as children (more than 400) were dragged from their mother's sides and loaded onto buses to transport them to -------?

... when He saw all the VERY hungry attorneys flocking to represent the 'injured'.

... when He witnessed the public's outrage (both pro and con) over this incident.

Jesus wept! My God, Jesus wept!!

I am weeping, too, but my tears are not the same. I cannot even begin to compare my tears to those of my Lord.

Tonight, tho, I am angry, angry, ANGRY!!

Local news started off with almost ten minutes of non-stop coverage ... buses, police escorts, projected destinations, mothers left behind ... you name it, they had it covered.

I ask you, folks, what business is it of ours (as in JQPublic's) ?!?!?

I apologize, somewhat, for the vent here. However, every once in a while I think that there just HAS to be a stop put to this media intervention into what is inherently, I believe, a private matter.

I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, taking children away from their parents en masse, without looking into individual cases, was wrong. Horrifying. But forcing an underage child into marriage is against several laws, and is also horrifying to me.

I couldn't agree with you more, Nancy. I think most people are of very mixed opinions on this subject. My rant, I guess, was a way of letting out some of my own feelings. I felt better when I had put them down on paper.

Appreciate your comment.
