How about the New Testament when Jesus cleaned the temple by over turning the tables of money changers and accusing them of turning the temple into a den of thieves.

Interpret the threat of ruining lives however you like, but at the end of the day the man conducted a factual investigation and turned over the information he collected to proper authorities. Seems proportional to someone threatening to rape his wife in the attempt to collect a non-existent debt. But tell us what a good Christian in your eyes is supposed to do?




Surely you understand I was referring to the actual threat as being hypocritical.

> the man conducted a factual investigation and turned over the information he collected to proper authorities.

And I agree, he is a hero for that, regardless of what religion he fancies.

Well, it's not actually the same guy who threatened his wife, that guy went unpunished. Moreover, it wasn't necessary to ruin Joel Tucker life. If Tucker had enough money to pay back everyone he stole without having to suffer crippling depression that would've been sufficient.
