Crimes must be met with justice

FATHER McGillicuddy (Letters, March 18) seems quite unaware that the same people who make mistakes should also try to make amends (if that is an adequate word).

Furthermore, a consideration of the story where Jesus says 'let he who is without sin cast the first stone' reveals an interesting question: the woman was caught in the act of adultery, yet the man whom she was with was never brought for the same punishment. Why?

Could it be that the religious, self-righteous prigs picked a poor woman whom nobody would care about to punish, whilst the man walked away?
