Journal Topic: Judge Anita

Describe what kind of judge you would be.

Judge not, least ye also be judged.  It's in the Bible, yet so many Christians are very bad about judging others.  I try really hard not to be one of those people.  I believe I have enough flaws to deal with in myself without trying to point out the flaws of others.  So in real life, I do not like to judge.

However, if I were an actual judge, if that were my job, I would be very different.  I do believe in mercy, but if someone breaks the law, they deserve to be punished.  I've seen too many families, too many children destroyed by an irresponsible role model who taught them that a life of crime is the only way to live.

So that's basically what my philosophy would be if I were a judge.  Of course, there are lots of technicalities and considerations when judging people in that capacity, and I would be a fair judge in that respect, always looking at all the sides and angles, but in the end, if someone is guilty beyond all doubt, I would certainly advocate punishing them in the most severe possible way.  Especially if they have done it more than once or if the crime was violent or against children or animals.
