When things like the Penn State child sex scandal happen in this world, it only supports my belief that THERE IS NO GOD!
Sorry for that, but once again a pillar of the sports world in America has fallen. Joe Paterno, Penn State’s head coach for like 500 years failed to turn in his longtime employee, a coach named Jerry Sandusky for CHILD RAPE.
By now most of you have heard the tale. Defensive coordinator, Sandusky is caught raping a male child around the age of age 10 in the locker room. The shower area to be exact. A witness, coach Mike McQueary sees it, doesn’t stop it but tells his boss Paterno. Paterno doesn’t call the police he tells his boss the athletic director.
What was done? Not much. Nobody called the COPS. Are you kidding? Nobody.
Worse yet, this was the second time Paterno was told of such behavior by this sick monster. The D coach retired but still was allowed on campus and to bring kids to games. The kids were stashed in Sandusky’s "Second Mile Foundation" to help at-risk youths. He sure did.
All involved didn’t want the stink on Penn State’s good name. So they covered it all up for this monster. After all, this kind of scandal would surely hurt the school’s reputation and the reputation of Paterno’s Penn State football program.
As we also know, many Catholic priests were guilty of raping kids as well. Chances are, it happens daily all over this country. Yet they are supposed to be as close to God as anybody. Speaking of which, Paterno has been treated with an almost godlike status.
Yet he still allowed all of this to happen on his watch and did nothing to stop it.
Where was God when these little boys were being raped, many screaming for help?
Sure, you can say, "Hey Craig ,you were in prison, too." That’s true and I deserved it. But my gosh, my crimes were in an entirely different hemisphere from these. I was at war with other drug pirates, not little kids.
Had I seen something like this going down I’d have jumped in, stopped it, and beaten that man to a pulp.
I’m sure most of you men would have as well. There are hoods and then there are monsters and this man is and was a monster. He isn’t alone. Are these things more prevalent today than say 30 years ago? I think not, we just have a media that exposes much more today.
So Joe now leaves in disgrace. I’m sure he’s a great man in many ways. However to allow this horror crushes all the good he once stood for. How truly sad for all involved, especially all those children. Their lives were destroyed, you don’t ever recover from that kind of rape.
