I don't know, I think those organizations are well-intentioned and the Catholic Church (which I'm a member of) is very supportive of that sort of thing, but my father hates that stuff, even though he is Catholic as well. He's 70 years old and conservative and just doesn't like all that "forgiveness for criminals" thing that some people and the Church are for.
I'm kind of in the middle, I guess as a Christian I think it's nice to try to forgive and help these people change if it's possible, but then again I don't like a soft attitude toward crime. When you hear how terrible these crimes are and what the victims went through, it just seems unfair to the victims, and that's how my father feels.
i was raised catholic and yes i do believe they did that sort of thing...i think however they just go in and pray for the individual to help the person overcome what is going on.not so much that they are forgiven for their crime..not to that extent....i am not sure if this sort of thing goes on today in the times we are living..the catholic church in my opinion is not like it was years ago
