After spending hours of note taking and consideration, after writing several very thoughtful pages detailing info (which I have decided not to post, people don't like long posts), I am just going to say that I believe RC knows that his son murdered Sheri and the children and that he thinks CC has asked forgiveness, and wants everyone to now "leave it alone" (his words).
You have to listen to the above sermons to hear what I am talking about.
In a nutshell, it is as if RC is saying, "Leave him alone, he privately asked for forgiveness." There is much more to that which is "heard" in those sermons, there is some very deep error...deception.
I listened to all I could until it became so shrill, and so much clanging in my ears... but agree that, for someone who insists he understands it's enough to be alright w God, this pastor sounds awfully defensive. Which seems consistent with a home in which emphasis has been placed upon image and appearances tho, which may as I said have contributed to growing resentment and contempt buried beneath his son's calm, controlled exterior.

RC states in the first (6-7) sermon that he's had to turn off the tv's - because of the spin put on things. "He knows the truth."
I went back to listen again to make sure I understood the first time. So I guess I've answered my own question above - they really do think he's innocent.
RC is hard for me to listen to - his voice is not "trained". I'm not insulting him, just saying it bothers me.
