But others of us do have a moral imperative. Through our analysis of the evidence and through our own investigations, we have discovered that it's not possible that Scott Peterson committed these murders.
So many want to put criminals behind bars and throw away the key. They want no more than the barest of existence for them. But that is not the attitude Jesus Christ had. He did not want crime to go unpunished, but he did want charity towards prisoners. In the Gospel of St. Matthew, Chapter 25, we read:
Christ then went on to say in this parable that those who did not do likewise unto the least of these were cast into everlasting fire.
That's a sobering thought, that we are supposed to care not only for the needy and the sick, but also for the imprisoned. If the Gospel of Jesus Christ has the moral imperative to visit the imprisoned, how much greater is the moral imperative to fight to correct the injustice of a wrongful conviction?
Letting the System run its course is an option for someone who believes Scott is guilty, but not for those who know he is innocent. Christian principles demand that whatever can be done must be done until the injustice is corrected.
