Secular Injustice

The sad, unthinkable, horrifying story of the monster in Austria who imprisoned and raped his daughter, and participated in the death of one of their offspring may not have to face real justice. The secular, leave-God-out-of-everything European society has no judicial system that will give this beast the punishment he rightfully deserves. This animal imprisoned his daughter for 24 years underground where she never saw the light of day, and neither did 4 of their 7 children. (click here for article) reports,

"He has already signed a confession but is now refusing to speak to detectives and his lawyer has hinted he could yet deny rape, incest and abduction. Even if he is convicted of the worst offence of rape, he can only be jailed for a maximum of 15 years - nine years less than the sentence he inflicted on his own daughter. His case has sparked a growing clamour for a reform of Europe's lenient penal system and debate over whether harsher U.S. style sentencing guidelines could be used to deter such heinous crimes. 'Fifteen years for destroying human lives is unacceptable,' said Harald Vilimsky, a public safety policy official with Austria's conservative Freedom Party. 'Any punishment that falls a single day short of a life sentence is a mockery of the victims.'"
This is justice in Europe. I can think of two such examples here in the Czech Republic: 1) A lady in the town we used to live in killed her 7 year old daughter and her punishment was 2 years in jail, and 2) a bus driver driving in icy conditions had an accident. No one was killed but several were injured. He got 8 years!

It shows what happens when people abandon Truth. The wisdom of man is foolishness.

Ezekiel 33:17 "Yet your fellow citizens say, 'The way of the Lord is not right,' when it is their own way that is not right. 18 "When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, then he shall die in it. 19 "But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and practices justice and righteousness, he will live by them. 20 "Yet you say, 'The way of the Lord is not right.' O house of Israel, I will judge each of you according to his ways."
