Girls Write Out
Wednesday, July 06, 2011
Now that the Casey Anthony trial is over, I think it's a reminder that God's justice is ultimate and that our laws to protect the innocent, sometimes let the guilty off.

Whether she's guilty or not, to me, she's guilty of extreme neglect (not reporting her daughter missing for two months) and guilty of acting poorly.

I haven't followed the case closely, I admit. It's too painful for me, but this is one of those times when you have to believe that vengeance is the Lord's. But when a child doesn't get justice, it helps to know that God is in charge...

Does that help you?

I agree with what you are saying, Kristin.

I feel sorry for her, ( if that is the right word to use) like someone said on the news, she may have been found not guilty, but she will be in a kind of prison the rest of her life.

I've been so busy lately that I didn't know anything about the case until I heard some very angry people talking about the verdict. What people seem to forget when they start calling for justice is that if we all got justice, we'd all be in hell right now. Whatever she did or did not do, Jesus died for that sin just the same as he did ours. We should desire for her to realize that, instead of wishing her dead.

Yes, that does help. I didn't follow the trial (couldn't stand to watch), just heard others talk about it, but the verdict seems incomprehensible. I can't imagine what those jurors must have been thinking.

The only problem I have is how America had her tried, convicted, and crucified without enough evidence. That bothers me. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

Yes, Kris, it does give me great comfort to know that God is the final judge and jury. I didn't follow the case because I know I'd be upset, but I do wish things like that would not be televised. The media does love to get ratings by stirring up trouble, doesn't it? I can't imagine having a child go missing for two months, though and not call out the police, the FBI, the National Guard, private investigators, CIA, and having every church in America praying she be found.

I don't feel sorry for her. I've dealt with too much narcissism in my lifetime to feel sorry for her. Those types prey on the kindness of others, and she knew how to get away with murder. Accusing her father of rape and anything else to get off.

I don't think she will live in a prison. I think responsibility falls off her back like water off a duck. She probably doesn't believe she did anything wrong.

As for Jesus dying for her sin, she'd have to have some kind of remorse for that to happen, and I'm not sure she's capable of that. If she is, it's going to be a miserable life admitting what she's done.
