What’s Wrong With THIS Picture???

Last weekend, long-time WABC newsman George Weber (above top) was murdered in his Brooklyn apartment.

Weber was stabbed over fifty times by a “knife-obsessed” Satanist.

All of that is horrible and George Weber, with his dynamic on-air personality, was certainly a victim of a violent crime, but the back-story is revealing and it makes the entire story a lot more complex.

Turns out that the 47 y/o Weber met his alleged killer (John Katehis - also pictured above bottom) through an online ad on Craigslist. An ad that offered $60 for rough sex.

OK, here’s what’s wrong with this picture, in grieving for George Weber, we lose site of the fact that he TOO committed a series of crimes here, the LEAST of which is offering to pay for sex (promoting prostitution) and the MOST SERIOUS being, put in the most charitable light, statutory rape – sex with a minor!

While neither of those crimes is worthy of death, they are serious issues and they speak to the moral crisis we face as a country today. Put it this way, IF George Weber had survived the attack, we'd still want John Katehis punished for his crimes, and once Mr. Weber got out of the hospital, we'd have wanted him to answer for his, as well.

But we seem to see it so often now-a-days that we’ve become numb to it – MSNBC’s “To Catch a Predator” has shown dozens of men of all backgrounds and income strata seeking out and driving hundreds of miles to engage in sex with 12 and 14 year-olds!

This kind of debased morality is inconsistent with freedom as Liberty and we cannot long survive as a nation so long as this plague is so widespread and remains so unaddressed.
