US Law Allows Child Marriage

Legal-marriage-age-world.jpeg

The far right christians in the US love to paint themselves as self-righteous and moral far above everyone else. They love to judge and condemn others from their “family values” platform.

People who sit on hollow rickety platforms should not cast judgements. Look at the map above – the US and Saudi Arabic are the only two nations worldwide that allow children as young as 9 to be married. 9!

If we look at US states below, the majority of US states have no age floor on marriage. In these states, you could legally marry a baby. And unsurprisingly most of these are in the bible belt, where “think of the children” is often heard. Doesn’t this put a creepy spin on the phrase.

Christian Couple Starved Baby to Death

Another Christian couplev allegedly kills child because of their beliefs.

I’m not sure Jesus had this in mind. I guess it is all His fault for not communicating things clearly and not foreseeing idiot believers.

Third Ranking Vatican Official Charged

With child sex offences of course.

Cardinal George Pell, Australia’s most senior Catholic and the third-ranking official in the Vatican, has been charged with multiple sexual offences by police.

Will the Vatican throw him under the bus?

Or will he be protected both by the church and by the law giving him a light sentence (if convicted) because of old age and ill health.

First Cardinal to Resign Since 1927

McCarrick

“Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of a prominent US cardinal [Theodore McCarrick] accused of sexually assaulting a teenager nearly 50 years ago.”

Naturally, “he has “no recollection” of the alleged abuse.”

He will be stripped of his titles of “Cardinal” and “your eminence” and “must also carry out ‘penance and prayer’ pending a canonical trial.”

<sarcasm>Sounds like appropriately punishment.</sarcasm>

The real question is: Why is this convicted criminal not in jail?

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 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.

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.
