    I think I'll post that on my daughters' Facebook walls. What do you think??

    LOL - I showed my husband who's listening to a message online right now so he just gave me a thumbs up. :D

    Not amusing.

    While I can certainly understand the fathers anger, he had no right to assault this man this way. Age of consent in Germany is 16, if I'm not mistaken, so it counts as consensual, unless the daughter comes forth with info otherwise.

    Nor was it a crime of passion, as the father took the time to round up two accomplices to hold this guy down for the attack. Yes, the 57 yr old comes across as creepy and perverted, dating a 17yr old, but it was all under the law, from what I've seen.

    So I can't support this dad in this. It was wrong. Both he, the daughter, and the 57yr old will be in my prayers. I think they may all need it.

    If he had been doing his duty as a father, his 17-year-old wouldn't have been involved with the old man.

    However, he's still the father, and if it were me, since the civil authorities wouldn't act, I would have simply warned the old man to lay off and warn him of swift, certain and severe punishment if he didn't.

    I think maybe it's the other way around. It is the girl who is creepy and perverted. The guy was just responding. After all, how often do you see a 17 year old girl go for a 57 year old guy ?

    Now, the guy is a pedophile......what kind of "phile" is the girl ?

    He did what he saw was fit to do, and he's willing to do prison time for himself and for his mates, whom, by the way, he didn't give up.

    Now, his daughter is free to "corrupt" the next much older man that comes her way. lol.

    Can we please not use the term <snip> when editing others' posts on this particular thread!

    Whilst I understand and sympathise with the perp's sentiments, he was way out of line and needs to go inside for a few years.

    Poor guy.

    His music leader will have to move him from bass to tenor.

    What was that girl thinking? And the Dad? I don't think either of them were. Then 2 men helped him from work? They'll get found out too.

    John Knox,the Scottish Reformer married a 17 year old young woman when he was 50 or more.

    William Farel,Calvin's older contemporary and friend, married a much younger woman when he was 69. He had a son six years later. But didn't live much longer.He died the year after Calvin.

    The 20th century Calvinist theologian -- John Murray married at 69. However, his wife was at least 40 at the time, if memory serves me.

    I got a strong feeling this unich was warned. He's lucky, I would have planted him in the Pine Barons instead of taking his acorns. Now he's the unich from Munich

    IMO - the assault and mutilation of this man was nothing more than sin.

    There was no justice handed out here - only revenge.

    This father's anger is understandable - but his actions were simply wrong.

    I would give the man a couple of warnings then I'd be willing to go to prison to protect my daughter from this pervert.

    Why is that the case?

    She could just hook up with another guy who doesn't know the story of this poor sap.

    No doubt this girl has issues.

    Her father would do better focusing his attention on her and getting her some help and guidance.

    Instead he is probably going to be off to jail for a few years and won't even be around for her.
