Title

St. Anne's letters rabidly judgmental

Description

Comments circling around holding parents responsible for the actions of trespassers
St. Anne’s letters rabidly judgmental

To the editor:
I applaud April Anderson for her intelligent and merciful letter on the subject of the St. Anne’s retreat trespassing incident (Tuesday, Nov. 4). If any readers missed her latter, it would be worth their while to look back through their newspapers and find it.

I, too, have been astonished at how many of the people who have written letters on this subject have been so rabidly judgmental of the teen-agers and their parents. I hope they are just misinformed individuals, rather than the malevolent ones they appear to be in print.

I have the feeling that if they had been standing around the adulteress when Jesus said, “He who is without sin among you, let him vast the first stone,” (St. John, Chapter 8) she would have been dead.
