Aussie Love

leave a comment »

But in these troubled times, who are we to say what love is????  [That's the argument, right?]

Jenna Louise Driscoll, 25, appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court yesterday charged with trafficking, possession of a dangerous drug, two counts of possession of an item used in the commission of a crime, three counts of supplying and a further three counts of bestiality.  Defence lawyer Rachel Cavalli asked for her client to be granted bail, which was not opposed.  Police prosecutor Sergeant Scott Pearson asked for reporting conditions that required Driscoll to report to police once a week and reside at a unit at Enoggera in Brisbane’s northwest.

Ick.  Ick.  You can call it love of animals but I just call it ick.  [And that name, Driscoll, it seems so familiar...]

Islamic Radicals are at it Again

leave a comment »

I have no idea what these radicals think they can accomplish but death.  If that’s their goal, suicide would be ideal.  That way they get death like they want and no one else is dragged into their wicked depravity.

A gunman attacked Canada’s parliament on Wednesday, with gunfire erupting near where Prime Minister Stephen Harper was speaking, and a soldier was fatally shot at a nearby war memorial, stunning the Canadian capital.

The gunman in the parliament building was shot dead, and Harper was safely removed in incidents that may have been linked to Islamic militants.

Witness accounts indicated the man who shot dead the soldier guarding the National War Memorial in central Ottawa, went on to attack the parliament building minutes later. Canadian police said however they could not “at this point” confirm it was the same person.

The shootings followed an attack on two soldiers in Quebec on Monday carried out by a convert to Islam. Two U.S. officials said U.S. agencies had been advised the dead gunman in Wednesday’s shootings was also a Canadian convert to Islam.

#UNC and a Lot of Cheaters

The Associated Press tweets-

BREAKING: Probe reveals scope of academic fraud at University of North Carolina; 3,100 students involved.

Good heavens.  I hope most of them weren’t in the religion/ biblical studies/ whatever it’s called there department.  We expect that kind of behavior from Law and Business students.  But not others.  Surely.

Total Depravity: 16 Years old And a Victimizer of Children

leave a comment »

Investigators think there could be more victims in a disturbing child porn case involving a Plant City teenager facing more than 100 charges.

Jared Kyle Henry, 16, of Plant City, Fla. was arrested on 93 counts of possession of child pornography, nine counts of promotion of a sexual performance by a child, and four counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.

Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Tampa Bay Regional Operations Center Cyber High-Tech Crime Squad began investigating Henry in September 2014 after Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations received a tip from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police that a computer user in Plant City, Fla. was sharing images of child pornography online.

On Oct. 1, 2014, FDLE and HSI Agents executed a search warrant at Henry’s residence where they located numerous images of child pornography. During the course of the investigation, agents determined that Henry molested the child in the images to produce the child pornography in his possession. He was arrested and charged with nine counts of promotion of a sexual performance by a child.

Ghastly.  Just ghastly.

There’s that Theodicy Question Again

Storms?  No problem.  Natural disasters?  Perfectly understandable.  War?  Man made horror.  Disease?  Something or other will unbind you from this life so don’t act surprised when it does.  In other words, what troubles others doesn’t really trouble me (in terms of the justice of God).

For me the real question is, why does God allow heinous and vile people like this woman to become parents?  That’s the real mystery, the real theodicy.

5191142_GA western Pennsylvania woman has been jailed on charges that she pulled her 6-year-old daughter’s hair so hard it separated her scalp from her skull and caused bleeding.  Online court records don’t list an attorney for 25-year-old Brittany Ruck, of Conway, who faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 23 on charges including aggravated assault and child endangerment. Conway police filed the charges Monday, but say they date to an incident on Aug. 27. Police say Ruck pulled the girls hair apparently because Ruck was upset that the girl couldn’t count to 12.

Why, God?  Why?  She looks like she wants to ask why she’s in trouble, as though she doesn’t know…

More Pastoral Misconduct: The Perversions of Angley

This one’s right disgusting:

During the past few months, a tear has ripped through the 3,000-seat auditorium known as Grace Cathedral. One longtime associate pastor resigned, telling friends and family he felt he had been inappropriately touched by Angley for seven years.

The dispute exploded on July 13, when Angley and two others in his camp addressed the situation in a 2½-hour open service. The service was recorded by one of the attendees and shared with the Beacon Journal.

In response to swirling accusations that he is a homosexual who has abused both his associates and members of the congregation, Angley, 93, had this to say to a large Sunday gathering.  “I’m not a homosexual. God wouldn’t use a homosexual like he uses me. He calls me his prophet, and indeed I am. …

Yeah well I doubt that God calls you a prophet unless God pronounces ‘liar’ ‘prophet’.

“They called Jesus a homosexual, did you know that? And still do. Because he was with men. Oh, Mary Magdalene and a few women. But you can’t stop the people’s lies.”

Then he addressed his history of urging the males in his congregation to submit to vasectomies.

“I’ve helped so many of the boys down through the years,” he said in his slow, singsong cadence. “They had their misgivings. Sure, I’d have them uncover themselves, but I did not handle them at all.

I don’t know about you but I’ve never known an authentic pastor who insisted on looking at male genitals.  Who the devil would fall for such nonsense?  Why do these clearly wicked pseudo-Christians have so many deranged followers?    How did the reprobate persuade them it was normal or acceptable?

‘Hey fella, come into my office, I want to check your private parts before you get that vasectomy…’  I mean seriously, what’s wrong with people?????  Any sane person would flee like Joseph from Potipher’s wife.

So much, then, for the people who think doctrine doesn’t matter and dogmatic instruction irrelevant.
