In my lifetime, I never expected to discover a topic as sleazy and sordid as the actions of the Roman Catholic Church. The Catholic Church intentionally hid the actions of pedophile priests who continued to molest young children. Father Gabriele Amorth, the Vatican’s chief exorcist, stated that ” the Devil is at work in the Vatican.” Father Amorth believes that the rampant sexual abuse of children by pedophile priests is proof of his statement. Readers of this website may type in the words ( pedophile priests ) in the search box at the top right side of this page. Articles about pedophile priests will then be displayed.
It turns out that I was wrong. I have discovered a topic that is as equally vile and reprehensible to me as the sexual molestation of children by pedophile priests. The actions of General Motors Corporation, in my view, are just as vile and reprehensible as the actions of the Catholic Church’s hiding of pedophile priests. GM is an American corporation and it has a legal obligation to act in a responsible manner and follow American Laws.
It turns out that GM had full knowledge about an ignition switch defect and covered up the problem in order to gain more profits. The result of this coverup by GM was the deaths of innocent Americans. I consider this to be murder. The issue, in my mind, is that all corporate executives and all members of GM’s corporate board should be punished for this horrendous crime.
It is true that GM is a corporation. However, as Americans we must not allow corporations to commit this type of criminal activity and then expect to hide behind the “corporate shield.” In the U.S. today, the main problem with our fast destructing society is that our laws are not enforced.
I believe that justice can only be served if guilty individuals are punished instead of being rewarded. I seriously advocate a public hanging of every GM executive and board member who was complicit in covering up this ignition defect that resulted in loss of innocent life.
The failure to enforce American Laws for criminal acts is the most serious issue facing our Republic today. Even the horror of international terrorism and the nightmare of a 17.5 TRILLION dollar National Debt pale in comparison to our failure to punish criminals. We need to subject criminals found guilty of horrendus crimes to the ultimate verdict of capital punishment. It would send an ethical message to those criminals who are destroying our Republic. After the guilty GM executives are hanged, I suggest that we subject the administrators of the Catholic Church to the same punishment if they helped hide pedophile priests.
