"We make no judgements concerning what they have done"
Anything that you (and others) can contribute to leading these "people" on
a path better than the one they travelled to arrive behind bars is to be
admired. I personally don't believe but I seldom have met a sincere person
who follows the mainstream teachings of the bible (as a christian or not) be
anything less than honorable.
