    Her family has reacted with fury after the 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was handed a 12-month referral order and fined £200 by magistrates, in Runcorn, Cheshire, after admitting assault.
    end quote.

    Since the 14-year-old thought he was being a respectable man when he did this, he should be charged as an adult.
    If he’s man enough to bully a girl, then he’s man enough to pay the consequences.

  2. Quote:
    My heart throbbed. I was in the crowd of the faithful. I felt its power.
    end quote.

    The power/ hysteria of a crowd is not the love of God.
    And it certainly has nothing to do with religious zeal.
    I’m sure the herd is really nice . . . unless you decide to think for yourself.
    In that case, I’m sure it becomes really oppressive really fast.
