I am a Christian saved by the grace of God through Jesus Christ. So I am incensed at your lack of mercy and compassion for Ms. Napier and her son over the matter of the boy’s tattoo.
Ms. Napier is absolutely right when she says her decisions about her child are no one’s business ( “How can somebody else say that [the tattoo is] not okay? He’s my child, and I have the right to say what I want for my child. I can’t go tell anybody else what I want for their child.”) And we as Christians should be especially sensitive to the primacy of the family vs. the State.
It’s bad enough that you insist on wielding the sword for government — a government which, by the way, approves the murder of unborn children and pushes the “normalcy” of sodomy; the least you can do to atone is defend parental rights. This mother has not only lost one child to death, she is in danger of losing another to the satanic State, thanks in part to your prosecution and persecution of her.
But my jaw actually dropped at your hard-hearted judgement on this sorrowing family: “I understand from the investigators that there are several memorial to the deceased child in the apartment where they live. It may be that professional or religious counseling for their/her grief would be more helpful than anything.” This is gossip, first of all. Second, such personal information came from bureaucrats trespassing in this victim’s home. And third, you are far beyond not only your professional bounds but those of decency to imply that anyone’s grief should heal on your timetable.
My grandmother lost all 3 of her children before she died. I saw first-hand what that does to a parent. You ought to be ashamed of yourself as a Christian and as a man for abusing Ms. Napier.
For Christ and liberty,
