Penitence

If you want forgiveness for bad behavior, you have to be penitent. Sadly the moral education of Kofi Annan and George Greer missed this out & they just want the forgiveness.

The London Times reports:

KOFI ANNAN, the United Nations secretary-general, is said to be struggling with depression and considering his future. Colleagues have reported concerns about Annan ahead of an official report this week that will examine his son Kojo’s connection to the controversial Iraqi oil for food scheme.

This man heads an organization which on his watch became rotten with corruption and a sponsor of pedophilia. He is responsible & should admit his responsibility, apologize and resign so that a better man can right his wrongs. Then make amends, maybe helping kids his troops have sexually abused. If he hangs on whining for sympathy, he'll be labeled until he dies as a disgrace.

Fox News reports an AP story on George Greer:

While in legal circles he is garnering acclaim for his consistent application of Florida law in the case, there has been a price.

Protesters now show up at his Clearwater home. The FBI arrested a North Carolina man it said placed a $50,000 bounty on the head of a judge in the case, although officials didn't name the judge.

This past week, he parted ways with his Southern Baptist church, which had advocated keeping Terri Schiavo alive, after his pastor suggested it would be better if he left. "You must know that in all likelihood it is this case which will define your career and this case that you will remember in the waning days of life," Calvary Baptist Pastor William Rice wrote to Greer in a letter than later became public.

Greer could not be reached for comment because of the frequent hearings on the Schiavo case, but longtime friend Mary Repper said she recently spoke with him and he judge sounds "worn out" by the case that has been on his docket for more than seven years.

Greer is a typical passive-aggressive, hiding behind rules to execute an act of depravity. Then whining that he's having a hard time. Unless he repents, it's going to get a lot worse.

Incidentally, the same story says (my emphasis):

Greer, a former county commissioner, became a judge in 1992. He was recently re-elected to a six-year term, but has announced that he will retire once that term is up.

Greer has been trying to kill this woman for years. Did his County voters know about this when they re-elected him? If so, Florida has major problems.
