    I started the thread about animal abuse having no idea it would spark such a reaction. Some members were asking about abuse of children, a very good and necessary topic. I firmly believe that child abusers, should at the very least be locked up and never see the light of day for the rest of their lives.

    I'm the product of a broken home, I'm the youngest of four adult children. My parents divorced when I was 3 years old, the home situation was so bad(there was drunkeness and physical violence between our parents) that the sister closest to me in age and I were placed in an orpanage. We were there two years, our father got us out. I don't know how he convinced the courts to do that.

    He moved us to a remote region of northern Minn. He drank heavily, some times things were ok, a lot of times they weren't.
    Our mother got us away from our father somehow, I don't know all the details. I assume she heard of our situation and convinced the courts that she was the better parent.

    My mother had remarried sometime while we were in the orphanage, she married another alcoholic.
    The whole thing repeated itself all over again.

    With that said, there are diffrent forms of child abuse as you all must know, I wont go into all of them here. My abuse was emotional, I thank God that I didn't turn into an abuser or any other criminal.
    In these times there are so many children who are in abusive homes and CPS, child protective services appears to be bound by law to operate within certain parameters. The goal is to return children to their biological parents. Which is all well and good, however in some instances this is not in the best interest of the child.

    I would like to hear some opinions on what should be done to protect children.

    Anyone who abuses a child should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    The most common problem involving child abuse, as well as most abuse crimes such as spousal abuse, date rape, etc, is that they go unprosecuted because the victims don't want to go through it all. I can certainly sympathize with the victim, but I believe that the victim who goes forward and allows the perpetrator to be prosecuted is doing a selfless and righteous act of sacrifice, and should be honored for that sacrifice. We're all better off when this happens. A victim, especially a monir victim, should never be made to feel that s/he did something wrong.

    I believe we have an obligation to protect children and that if a child is removed from an abusive home there should be clearly mandated dates and requirements that had to be met. If they were met, the child should have clear access (regular private visits) to authorities to notify them of the true situation and if they are not met, the child should be given the opportunity to live with a non-abusive family.

    I was doing children's home ministries when a little girl clung to me, sobbing, begging me not to let them force her to go on her visit with her father. The house parent explained to me that the child was at the home because the father had almost killed the mother and the child, yet, the court viewed his right to visit her as more important than her right to feel safe.

    Children, victims of sexual predators. Sexual predators are the vilest of all criminals. Once found guilty in a court of law they should be made eunuchs at the very least. It would be better for them to have a millstone tied around their neck and thrown into the sea.

    Luke, 17:2 "It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin." NASB

    While I'm on the subject, you can go online to find out if there are sexual predators living in your area. Where we live I can go online and find out what road or street they live on. It wont give their address. They should not be allowed to live anywhere near the general populace.

    Laws need to be made more stringent regarding such criminals!

    My police department puts them on line and gives the actual address, along with pictures, and what they were convicted off.

    It is frightening.

    In one zip code alone (which contains 3 elementary schools and 2 junior highs, plus a college campus for the city's Christian Univerisity) it shows:

    For child sexual abusers there needs to be the straitest punishment possible, those are the most vile people I can think of.
