    weaver52000, what you see as "stir the pot", thinking people see as "asking the hard questions" or "holding people to their convictions by expecting them to do what they say they do". YMMV

    Personally, I see way too many hypocrites out there and I try to change that by pointing it out. Maybe someone will see the (integrity) light. :-)

    And, I noticed that all you was bash me (Ad Hominem) and not actually address the question...like the lack of the "do unto others" adherence. (e.g. "Who would Jesus bomb?" "Who would Jesus deport?" "Who would Jesus deny healthcare to?")

    Sad or not... law is law. "Oh well this woman can slide because she was doing it for a good reason"... Sorry ignorance, thats not the way law works. Across the board rules, no exception just because it seems like a "good enough reason" Thats BS.

    tarhellbabe, If I was you I wouldn't even entertain herandnow's comments. He is always trying to stir the pot.

    hereandnow99...Just because its a christian church, doesnt give her the right to steal...The church is there and can be of great assistance to her and I am certain they have forgave her for trespassing against them but her punishment is up to the courts not the church

  • JustOneGodLessThanU Feb 8, 2011

    Why is she in jail? This was a so-called "Christian" church, right? If so, do they not say "...as we forgive those who trespass against us..."? ...every DAY? Isn’t stuff that comes right from the top?

    What's the good of SAYING the words if you're not DOING it? Do you like making your hypocrisy public? And, these are YOUR rules...YOUR mantra. I guess integrity went out the window along with the "do unto others" rule. Sad.

    "you all don't know her story.let it play out in the courts and not on this blog"

    Then what is the point of being able to post comments if we can't speculate and post our opinions?

    Don't need to know her story - her actions speak volumes.
