No matter what the reason for thes crimes, the severity of injury to the victims certainly doesn’t warrant anything close to a life sentence.

That said, the old curmudgeon and his totally idiotic followers deserves a few years, just to drive home the point that this country has laws, and they apply to them. Furthermore, their religion doesn’t mean “squat” when it comes to their guilt, or their sentences. Assault is still assault, and battery is still battery, and both are illegal.
