There's a story in the news about a California teacher who has been working in that profession for a few years. It has come out that, back in 2005 and 2006, she made a few porn movies in order to keep her family fed. Then she became a teacher. Presumably, she put her past behind her.
Actually, she's not allowed to put it behind her. Her past was discovered. She was fired. The grounds on which she was fired is that she "lied" about her past. This is a crock. If she had told the truth, would she have been hired at all? Exactly. She omitted giving a full and explicit account of her past so that she could leave it. She took a swing at redemption, which is now being denied her.
Think, what work can she get now? She's a qualified teacher, certified by the State, who will be denied employment in her trade anywhere in the States. What can she do to survive? I suspect the intention, if there is an intention, is to drive her away, out of mind, and without prospects of "decent" employment. Back to porn, to prostitution, to drug dealing...it doesn't matter to the "decent" people who publicized her past.
If redemption means anything, it means that people can change. And that means that people must be allowed to change. Jesus knew it (John 8:1-11), but many Christians do not.
I will not link to any stories about the poor woman. That decision, unfortunately, has no power to give her privacy.
