Default Re: Paedophilia: An Analysis In Method.

I can't say what I would do, maybe I couldn't take someone's life even if they deserved it.
But I can say this: I'd be PROUD to take a prison sentence for doing whatever to punish their crime.

This is the reason I can't quite say I agree with Christianity. I have a problem with "turning the other cheek." How can you turn the other cheek to someone who's committed such a crime against you or anyone else?

The concept of chivalry in Medieval Europe came from totally non-Christian origins much older; they consistently PUNISHED people for evil deeds, despite the fact that they were "Christians" on surface. But the fact was they never admitted anyone new into the chivalric orders (particularly The Templars) who followed literally the commandment "Thou Shalt Not Kill".
