  • A sad story and unfortunately one that probably shouldn't be told.

    There are no winners or losers in this debate. Only losers. Unfortunately this is one subject that you can never convince one side or the other they are ever wrong. It is probably the most polarizing issue facing any Christian faith based country and community.

    Not a very well done story but they at least put the twist in the end about why this gentlemen would commit a murder of this type. He had more motive than just the debate and unfortunately it was his own agenda he was fulfilling.

    The one point this story makes that is true is the law is the law and no matter how one feels murder is murder. Not one groups version but the version that fits the legal system. No one person has the right to take the law into their own hands. If one allows that you have anarchy.

    As far as the episode is concerned they did have a tendency to represent one side better than the other which is their choice. As I stated in the summary this is one story that I think would have been better left untold. Other than that the acting was good by all participants and the investigation and how they tracked the perpetrator was clever. Thanks for reading...
