What church did she go to?

I read this horrifying tale of vindictiveness the other day and just could not let it go. Nicole Griffin of Roswell, Ga wanted to buy a house from her neighbor Lorenzo Jimenez. The deal fell through in part because Jimenez is an illegal alien. Roswell's disappointment leads her to a scorched earth approach to the problem which ultimately cost Jimenez his job, and will eventually cause his deportation. I thought about the story for a few days but kept coming back to something which was left unstated. Where did Griffin for her morality? In other words, which church taught her to be a human devoid of compassion and love for her fellow man?

Locked in a letter war with Meder, Griffin escalated her actions. She contacted the FBI, the Roswell Police Department, local media, the state attorney general's office and the governor's office, among others. She asked her congressman, U.S. Rep. Tom Price, for help, saying she felt Jimenez and Meder had deceived her. Price's office, in turn, contacted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Brendan Buck, a Price spokesman.

The FBI? The Police? The state attorney general's office? I mean, what could possibly motivate somebody to take action of this gravity? Griffin is attempting to destroy another living breathing human being over what? A few dollars and the loss of a house she possibly could not afford anyway? Her actions are evil.

I could not let it go. Sorry for the rant.
