Long ago the Hebrew prophet spoke of God saying: "You love justice
and hate Evil". How true! The theme of Justice is so fundamental and
so foundational in both the Hebrew and Christian scriptures! To ignore
it and so practice and injustice, we put ourselves at risk. Yet a
great injustice is about to happen to a man, Paul Scott, now on
death row in Florida. His innocence can be readily irrefutable proven
and complete supportive documentation is at hand, sadly Paul Scott is
indigent, has very low IQ and has become Florida's scape goat.
Sadly enough the person who committed this crime admitted to it, spent
15 years in prison and has since been released.
Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking (since made into a movie)
has endorsed Paul Scott's cause and grieves that an innocent man
So, together with Helen Prejean and others, I ask: "Can we let an
innocent man die?"
God forbid! And if we do, may God see it in his heart to forgive us!
We will need it!
Yours in trust and hope.
