    I agree 100% with sentencing convicted child molesters to death.

    IT is written that it is better for a man to tie a bolder around his neck and jump into the sea than to hurt one of these.

    No.  There are many other things which are just as bad which people actually get awards for.

    Yes but if we did that there would be no more priests the Catholic Church would never let that happen. 

    Francis loves his little boys.

    That might feel good to some of you but it won't address the problem at the root. Most child molesters are known to the children, even related to the child/children involved. You'd be executing someone's dad or grandpa in most cases. You have to break the cycles that create this abuse. In some cases there is no instigating circumstances that produced the molester. But in a lot of cases, there is evidence the molester was molested. 

    You'd also have to tackle the giant stigmas of sex and sexuality that religion teaches that warps so much of how people view their own bodies, their needs and urges and how to deal with those needs and urges in a healthy, natural way. Churches teach that sex is bad, unnatural and wrong unless you're married. That in itself creates massive problems, insecurities, unneeded guilts and dangerous repressions that often develop into harmful actions. Harmful to that person most of the time but harmful to others if enough trauma and such is present. This is not true of all people, but it is true enough to be a problem that humans won't or can't face. 

    We're still far more comfortable thinking child molesters are seedy old men in vans snatching children they don't know. That picture of the molester should wear a far more normal face, who grooms a child just so until that child helps hide the very crimes being committed against her or him. That we don't wish to even now take on, let alone do something about.

    Of course.

    Drawn and quartered would be a good way of ridding the world of that filth.

    Their apologists should get the same.

    No, but they should be given life sentences so that they will not be able to molest other children.

    Child molestation is a terrible sin, but not deserving of a death sentence. Capital punishment should be reserved for murderers, rapists, idolaters and homosexuals. In my opinion, child molesters should not be sent to death, No, they should be handed over to the church for biblical counselling and spiritual guidance.  Only the church is able to reform them, and train them to become honest people.
