Deuteronomy 5:11 You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
The Toronto Police have assisted in breaking a Internet child pornography ring. Working closely with police in Britain, they have arrested more than 700 individuals across 35 countries and saved 31 children. Some of these poor children were only a few months old. The mere thought makes me want to vomit.
So, why the title?
The first arrest made netted the original host of the site, Royal Raymond Weller of Tennessee, who used the nickname "G.O.D." This recent arrest netted the man who kept the ring alive in a new chat room, Timothy David Martyn Cox, who used the nickname "Son—Of—God."
I don't know what makes me angrier, that this was done to children or that this was done to children by someone who had the audacity to call himself God. It offends my sense of all that is just and holy to the very core. These sickos took the name of the Almighty on their lips while engaging in what is probably the most heinous of all possible crimes.
What more can I say?
This is why I believe in the death penalty.
The world is just a little bit safer after these arrests. It is my hope and prayer that there will be some measure of healing for these poor children. May God restore the pieces of what are surely shattered lives.
