Good defense attorneys like Mr. Dow are necessary for keeping the power of the State within its proper limits. David Lesser. This verdict is long overdue, but unfortunately the enablers who protect abusers and pedophiles never face justice. I have reported on this case in my blog since I do not get any personal pleasure when Mr. Greer, or anyone else for that matter, goes to jail, as I have spent 18 months in Federal prison myself and I would not wish incarceration on my worst enemy. But Mr. Greer presents a physical danger to others and should be in jail, regardless of his age.
After speaking with numerous child sexual assault victims, who reached out to me, they express more anger towards the adults who protected and enabled pedophiles like Mr. Greer for decades, than the actual abuser himself.
I hope that this highly publicized verdict will give others who have been abused the strength to come forward. As for other pedophiles, enablers and protectors of abusers, beware of Larry Noodles! It is not true that Greer was a moving force in helping Soviet refusniks leave the Soviet Union, as this article suggests. Many people, many organizations, many government agencies were involved.
To give such a convicted sexual deviant any credit is a mistake and an insult. Rabbi Greer. Agudath Israel opposes raised H. I received my law degree at Yale Law School. The bills before this committee would elevate the status of same sex unions to the legal equivalent of marriage in Connecticut. Its details are spelled out in many pages of complicated statutory legalese, but the message is clear.
The traditional institution of marriage with all the social and ethical benefits it imparts, would be seriously eroded and perhaps destroyed. That message, we fear, does substantial violence to the values in which civilized societies have been founded from time in memorial, not hundreds of years, thousands of years. Connecticut law in the area of sexuality and marriage prescind from the Bible. In particular, the five books of Moses, the Torah.

The commandments in this regard, as set forth in the Torah are at the cornerstone of Judaism, not to speak of Christianity and Islam, the three great western religions. After the Almighty created man and woman, He ordained that a man shall leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, becoming as one.
Marriage then is by the devine definition, the union of man and woman. A historic opposition, which is shared by classical Christianity, and again, Islam. The Torah perspective on homosexual relationships is informed by biblical disapproval, a strong disapproval. It is worth perusing. Casuistry and intellectualisms cannot efface and expunge the wholehearted opposition of the Bible to these prohibited sexual relationships, including homosexuality. Should we choose to abandon the founding principles of Connecticut law? From the purely social perspective, the bills before the committee are ominous.
A few thoughts. It has become manifestly and tragically clear in recent years that the decline of traditional marriage has engendered normal social costs and more specifically, are faded to view heterosexual marriage is essential to family life has had a devastating impact on children.
These bills would be a further, perhaps fatal assault on the already imperiled institution of marriage. We hear a lot about the best interest of the child. The family was intact. Also legalizing same sex marriages which, by biological definition, even as to form, can never have anything to do with procreation, would obscure further still the vital link between marriage and children. It would convey the message that childbearing and child rearing are matters entirely distinct and irrelevant to marriage with the emotional uncertainty and instability for the next generation.
These are among many serious adverse results of the proposed legislation. As an aside, by the way, these bills are inherently illogical. How odd and anachronistic. If we are to ignore our traditional roots, why not adopt the new morality in toto. Sorry to disappoint elainect.

It takes a village to protect a rapist of children. Is it really necessary to put jurors pictures, even from the back, online??? I get the freedom of the press, and they were in public, but come on….
