— Friar’s death was cowardice

In response to Richard Ruth’s “Media had role in friar’s death” (Feb. 7): I don’t believe the media drove the friar to his death. I believe it was because he was a coward.

The acts this man committed are beyond forgiveness, in my book. Surely, heaven won’t be filed with repented pedophiles and rapists. Everybody repents when they are caught, don’t they?
