Child Abuse Trial: Church-run Residential Facility

Screenshot_2017-01-27-13-22-17-1.png

Prosecutors say teenagers were voluntarily sent to the residential facility by parents and were routinely abused there. The facility was associated with Solid Rock Ministries.

“These people hide behind the cross. These people try to portray themselves as ministers, people of God. They know Alabama has separation of church and state, and they know in Alabama if you’re doing it in the name of God, it’s got to be perfectly ok. Cause they will do nothing to protect these children. Nothing,” said retired Prichard Police Captain Charles Kennedy.

Prayer Killed Sick Child

prayer-killed-child

Religious nutter parents who had “issues going to doctors” chose to pray for their gravely ill son instead of calling the ambulance. So the boy died in a horrific way.

Because Jesus said: all ye who loveth me, let thy children suffer in pain and agony, for that is my Father’s will and idiocy is the glory of His creation.

Priests don’t have to report child abuse

Louisiana Supreme Court rules priests don’t have to report child abuse.

1. This is special treatment for one specific religion. How come they don’t have to follow the law like everyone else? If an imam hears confession about child abuse is he mandated to report it? How about a Daoist monk? Aren’t we all supposed to be equal in the eyes of the law?

2. This is clearly prioritising a religious practice (protecting the confidentiality of the confessional) over the protection of children.

3. This is hypocrisy.  (Not surprised of course.) What happened to “think of the children”? The church uses this to demonize homosexuals. But when it comes to real actual abuse, they fight to avoid reporting it.

“the fact that the Catholic church would fight for and win the right to keep child abuse hidden should come as a surprise to no one. After all, the Catholic church has a long and well documented history of protecting child abusers at the expense of innocent children.”

In other words, the church chooses to protect itself over protecting children. This says something dreadful about the Catholic religion and its god.

God Sent Five Pedophile Priests to One Town

5th-pedo-priest.jpg

Father Peter Searson was the fifth pedophile priest sent by a loving god to the same community in Australia. The community wanted him gone after 2 years. They wrote letters but suffered his child abuse for 11 more years!

WTF?

If this were a secular organization, the police would have been called, and all the customers would have left. No excuses. Zero tolerance.

But because this is religion, people stayed int he flock and continued to expose their own children to sexual and physical abuse.

Did they think almighty god will fix it (though he seemed to have elected not to fix it)? Or this was all meant to be, as part of god’s mysterious plan? God sent 5 pedophile priests to create 35 years of hell inside his holy church. Is this divine experiential learning?

Religion does appear to retard critical thinking, leading to apathy and poor decision-making. I guess if you were the sheep, you have no options other than follow the shepherd quietly. As helpless sheep, you would look to him to fix everything. And if he wanted you to touch his penis, well, god must want that too.

Sure, you could argue that this is just one bad shepherd. But this community has had a string of FIVE bad shepherds. What are the chances? They tolerated 5 abusers and wrote whinging letters and kept going to and giving money to that church! It is more likely that the political/financial system that is the catholic chutch is corrupt and toxic. Which then comes back to – why would the congregation not leave? What atrocity would it take for believers to move to a different religion, or stop believing altogether?

This is the stupidity that can come from blind belief. Atrocities will be rationalized away. When reality is too hard, retreat to denial, mental gymnastics and hamster logic.

God wants gays to be celibate, but allows priests to molest children

gay-celibacy-priest

“A Catholic priest who claimed God wants gay people to remain celibate for life has been suspended over child sex abuse claims.”

An all merciful, all knowing, and all loving god certainly lows bestowing mental illness of his staff. Maybe he enjoys watching suffering and hatred, to create so much of it.

Of course, the believers will all say this is the devil’s work. Because you know, god cannot stand up against the devil, or perhaps doesn’t want or care to.

Orlando massacre anti-gay pastor arrested for child molestation

Pastor Kenneth Adkins celebrated the Orlando gay bar massacre by tweeting: “I don’t see none of them as victims. I see them as getting what they deserve!”

He has been arrested for molesting underaged boys. Who DIDN’T see this coming?

Australian Anglican Pedophile Ring Exposed

anglican-pedophile-ring

The anglican church will not be outdone by the catholics it seems. A horrific pedophile ring that had operated for 40 years and covered up by senior church clergy has surfaced.

Wow – color me surprised. More self-righteous god botherers who are all too ready to tell gay people they can’t get married, now caught our raping children. God is indeed great and loving.

This further proves:

(a) There is no god. Certainly not a loving one. Nor one that is capable of preventing such atrocities. Perhaps this was god’s mysterious plan? Yes, that would be right.

(b) Churches have no standing to declare any moral teachings on society. If such horrific acts were allowed to happen for decades (if not centuries) then every moral proclamation made by churches are null and void.

Child-molesting priest promoted to lead teen pregnancy center

priest-800x430

“A Catholic priest who was accused of sexually abusing a 16-year-old girl has been appointed as director of a teen pregnancy center… to ‘provide a wide range of ideas and skills.'”

I wonder what sort of ideas and skills he would bring to vulnerable teens?

The catholic church seems to be rotten to the core. Their god clearly doesn’t exist, because why would an all-knowing and all-merciful god allow child molestation to occur in its own church and continue to promote offenders? The church administration clearly does not believe in or fear divine punishment. Unless of course child molestation is OK by god.

Catholic Church spent $2million to block N.Y. kid-rape laws

ALBANY — Not leaving it to divine chance, the state Catholic Conference has turned in recent years to some of Albany’s most well-connected and influential lobby firms to help block a bill that would make it easier for child sex abuse victims to seek justice.

Why rely on prayer faith and divine power when you can spend earthly money on earthly lawyers? The church knows what works. If you seriously think the church actually believes in god and biblical teachings then you are mentally deficient.

Catholic Church: No Obligation to Report Abuse

catholic-church-no-obligation-to-report-abuse

The Catholic Church is allegedly telling newly ordained bishops that they have no obligation to report child-sexual-abuse allegations to law-enforcement officials, saying instead that the decision to take such claims to the authorities should be left to victims and their families.

The policy was first reported by a veteran Vatican journalist at Catholic news website Crux, who cited a presentation given by French Monsignor Tony Anatrella.
