“If this couple wants to sponsor a child, why don’t they give the money to the church of which they’re a member and let the church sponsor a child in its name as opposed to the registered citizen.”
Because they shouldn’t HAVE to do it that way. That would just be bowing down and saying: “I’m not worthy of donating to a charity because I’m a horrible, scummy sex offender. Let me pass the money on to my church and have them do it for me”.
We cannot keep cowering down like this. This is what makes the powers that be STRONGER.
