Total Depravity: The Ohio College Kids Who Got Covid, And Threw a Party…

As far as I am concerned, behaviour like this is akin to knowing you have AIDS and having unprotected sex.  It is intentionally aiming to harm others.  It is criminal.  It is depraved indifference.  It is total depravity.

A college student house held a party over the Labor Day weekend that included people who had recently tested positive for the coronavirus, according to police body camera footage obtained by NewsNationNow.com.

Oxford police cited six men at a house near Miami University on Saturday for violating the state’s mass gathering and quarantine ordinance.

Bodycam footage shows an officer arriving at a home near the campus and finding men without masks on the porch drinking and listening to music. The incident reports states the officer heard the music playing from over 25 feet away and saw seven people standing on the porch or in the front yard.

One of the men tells police that about 20 people have gathered at the house, twice the amount of people allowed to congregate in Ohio. The officer asks the group to disperse while he runs the ID of one of the residents.

“I’ve never seen this before,” the officer is heard saying to the student after running his ID. “There’s an input on the computer that you tested positive for COVID?”

“Yes,” the student answers. He goes on to disclose that he tested positive a week before and that every single person at the party has COVID-19, including two people from the house across the street.

“Oh, God. This is what we’re trying to prevent,” the officer responds. “We want to keep this town open.”

The officer questioned why the students weren’t practicing a self-imposed quarantine for 14 days, as recommended by state and federal health officials. The student responds that the guests were just passing by.

Utter depraved selfishness.

Children always come from somewhere-  Wendy Rittenhouse is the mother of the 17 year old Kyle Rittenhouse, at the same protest.

Children aren’t born with hate in their hearts.  Their parents and others in their lives teach them to hate.

Total Depravity: Jerry Falwell and the Poolboy Tryst

Jerry Falwell resigns from Liberty University following allegations of sexual tryst

Jerry Falwell Jr. the embattled president of Liberty University and one of the biggest champions of President Donald Trump, has resigned, Religion News Service has learned.

His resignation came within hours of the publication of a news story that alleged he and his wife Becki had a years-long sexual relationship with a business associate.

Falwell had been placed on indefinite leave earlier this month after posting, then deleting, a provocative Instagram photo of him posing with his arm around a woman at a party with their zippers down and midriffs showing.

After that post, Liberty University alumni and former teaching faculty at the school called for his permanent ouster, citing a long list of offensive statements by Falwell, who has been one of President Trump’s staunchest allies.

Earlier today, Reuters published a story on Monday (Aug. 24), saying Falwell’s onetime business partner, Giancarlo Granda, a former pool attendant at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel had a six-year relationship that involved him having sex with Becki Falwell while Jerry Falwell looked on.

“Becki and I developed an intimate relationship and Jerry enjoyed watching from the corner of the room,” Granda said in the Reuters story.

Colby Garman, pastor of the Pillar Church in Dumfries, Virginia, and a Liberty alumnus, last week published a letter signed by 50 Liberty alumni calling on Falwell’s permanent removal, saying his behavior has embarrassed the school and its reputation. He reiterated today his call for Falwell’s removal.

Etc.

Liberty Alum Charged with Abuse of a Child Under the age of 13

A former staff member at a faith-based private school is facing seven counts of aggravated sexual battery with a person less than 13 years of age.

A Fentress County grand jury on Wednesday, Aug. 5, indicted Stephen Lee Clark on the charges stemming from seven different encounters from August 2009 to May 2012. It is unclear if there were multiple victims or not since all counts involve a minor under the age of 13 and names were redacted from the grand jury report.

According to Faith Baptist Tabernacle, Clark was on staff at their Faith Christian Academy school. In a statement, the church says it is fully cooperating with law enforcement and Clark resigned from his responsibilities at the school in June.

A quick look at his Linkedin profile shows the Liberty U. connection.

Total Depravity: The School Bus Driver/ Sunday School Teacher Edition

Stephen Roach, 45, is facing two counts of aggravated sexual battery.

Stephen Roach

In the early summer, the Sheriff’s Office received a call about an alleged incident of sexual abuse involving multiple minors. An investigation by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division and Department of Children’s Services Special Investigation Unit revealed Roach committed lewd sexual acts on underage victims.

The case was presented to the Anderson County Grand Jury which led to the indictments. He was arrested Thursday in the Claxton community by ACSO deputies and transported to the Anderson County Detention Facility. Roach is being held on a $75,000 bond.

Aggravated sexual assault is a Class A felony and carries a prison sentence of 15-60 years.

Roach has served as a Sunday school teacher and van driver at the Solid Rock Baptist Church on Clinton Highway, volunteered with the Claxton Optimist Football program, and a bus driver for Knox County Schools, according to a release from ACSO.

Depravity Soils Every Life From Birth

We are vitiated and perverted in all parts of our nature, and then, on account of this corruption, are justly held to be condemned and convicted before God, to whom nothing is acceptable but purity, innocence, and righteousness. And hence, even infants bring their condemnation with them from their mother’s womb; for although they have not yet brought forth the fruits of their unrighteousness, they have its seed included in them. Nay, their whole nature is, as it were, a seed of sin, and, therefore, cannot but be odious and abominable to God. Believers become assured by baptism, that this condemnation is entirely withdrawn from them, since (as has been said) the Lord by this sign promises that a full and entire remission has been made, both of the guilt which was imputed to us, and the penalty incurred by the guilt.  — John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion

You Reap What You Sow

A Texas doctor says a 30-year-old patient who thought the coronavirus was a hoax has died after attending a “COVID party.”

“One of the things that was heart-wrenching that he said to his nurse was, ‘You know, I think I made a mistake,’ and this young man went to a COVID party,” Dr. Jane Appleby, the chief medical officer at Methodist Hospital, told KSAT. “He didn’t really believe. He thought the disease was a hoax. He thought he was young and he was invincible and wouldn’t get affected by the disease.”

According to Appleby, a “COVID party” is a gathering held by someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus. People attend to see who gets infected first.

“They’ll have a party to invite their friends over to see if they can beat the disease,” Appleby explained.

People will never learn.

If These Young People are the Future of America, Just Close the Country Down

These kids are fundamentally idiotic.

Students in Tuscaloosa, Ala., who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 reportedly have been going to parties in an attempt to see who else will catch the virus. That’s what a city council member told ABC News Wednesday.

Tuscaloosa City Councilor Sonya McKinstry reportedly said that students had organized COVID-19 parties in an attempt to infect each other on purpose.

“They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense,” McKinstry told ABC News. “They’re intentionally doing it.”

The Tuscaloosa council issued a mandatory facemask rule Tuesday night after Fire Chief Randy Smith told members that an investigation uncovered students who knew they were positive were still partying.

What The…. Jan Joosten… Pedophile….

This SHOCKS me- and I can’t be shocked by much!

On June 18, 2020, Jan Joosten was sentenced by the Saverne (Bas-Rhin) criminal court to one year in prison for holding thousands of child pornography videos and images.

Via Wikipedia.  Regrettably.  The story in the French press is behind a paywall.  Via Dr. Annette Yoshiko Reed on the twitter.

Ghastly.  Ιησους.  I’ve spent time with Joosten at various conferences.  I never had a clue.  I feel like I’ve been punched in the gut.

UPDATE: Candida Moss tweeted a photo of the story so you can read it yourself:

UPDATE 2: The Guardian has picked up the story.

UPDATE 3: Christ Church, Oxford, has issued a terse statement.

Of Course He’s A Member of the Klan! Who Else Would He Be?

Over the weekend, a Virginia man was arrested for driving his truck into a crowd of protesters. It has now been revealed that the accused, Harry H. Rogers, is also the head of the Virginia chapter of the Ku Klux Klan.

WTVR News reported Monday that Rogers was charged by police with attempted malicious wounding (a felony), destruction of property (also a felony), and assault and battery (a misdemeanor) after the incident. When he was arrested, Rogers confessed to officers he is the president of the Ku Klux Klan in the state and claimed to be the highest-ranking member of the Klan that is not in prison.

I hope he enjoys prison.  And by enjoys, I mean doesn’t at all have a pleasant time.

Total Depravity: The College Racists Edition

I don’t understand the level of stupidity that’s operative in the minds of college kids these days.  Are they so oblivious of the fact that whatever they post on social media will be seen?  Or do they think being racist is so cool everyone will find them charming?

Either way, they shouldn’t be in college until they can act with a level of maturity befitting a college student.

Students, administrators and graduates of two Georgia schools expressed their outrage Friday after white, female students posted racist comments and images on their social media pages.

Wesleyan College on Thursday expelled a student for posting statements such as “Bear down on these (expletives),” using a racial slur to demean African Americans.

Georgia Southern University wrote a message Friday condemning “inappropriate and offensive social media posts” after a white woman, identified on social media as a student, posted a picture of herself in blackface with the caption “to quote rosa parks. nah.”

Idiocy.  And if these two girls are Christians, they have lots of repenting to do.

The Cops in Buffalo All Think Shoving an Old Man Down Is Acceptable

That’s why all 57 of their Brownshirt shock troops resigned in protest of the suspension of two of them.

An entire unit of the Buffalo Police Department resigned from their assignments Friday after two officers were suspended amid outcry over video showing officers shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground, according to the Buffalo News and other media outlets.

All 57 of the members of the department’s Emergency Response Team resigned from the unit, which responds to riots and other crowd control situations, according to the outlets. The Emergency Response Team members have not quit the police department, but have stepped down from the tactical unit, the Buffalo News reported.

“Our position is these officers were simply following orders from Deputy Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia to clear the square,” said Buffalo Police Benevolent Association President John Evans. “It doesn’t specify clear the square of men, 50 and under or 15 to 40. They were simply doing their job. I don’t know how much contact was made. He did slip in my estimation. He fell backwards.”

They aren’t resigning because they are honorable and are protesting the tactics of the squad, they are resigning because they object to two of their own being held accountable.

‘And the Lord God Regretted That He Had Made Humanity…’

A Knox County teaching assistant was charged with aggravated assault and two others were charged with child abuse after a nonverbal student was special needs was allegedly attacked on a school bus.

According to arrest reports, Knox County School bus 164 was stopped on Beaverwood Drive on December 2, 2019 when teaching assistant Robert Wilson, 40, hit the student with his elbow and punched the student in the face. The student suffered a broken nose and a chipped tooth.  Wilson was charged with felony aggravated assault and failure to report child abuse.

Another teaching assistant Elena Banks, 38, was charged with failure to report child abuse. Arrest reports say Banks was sitting directly behind the student who was assaulted on the bus and did not report the assault to anyone.  Bus driver Jeannie Hurst, 55, was also charged with failure to report child abuse.

VILE.  Assaulting a child is bad enough.  But assaulting a special needs child and causing significant harm… that’s unforgiveable.

Total Depravity: The Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin Edition

A video went viral of a journalist in Santa Monica, California, holding a power tool near a building destroyed by looters and posing for an Instagram photo before quickly jumping back in a car to drive away. Online commenters were angry that the woman appeared to be pretending to help for the sake of a photo op.

The woman’s identity was confirmed by New York Times journalist Taylor Lorenz as Fiona Moriarty-McLaughlin, an intern with the Washington Examiner.

In the video, after posing with the construction worker, she hands him back his power tool and says, “Thank you so much” before walking away. A bystander can be heard saying afterward, referring to the young man standing on the sidewalk taking her photo, “Boyfriends of Instagram!”

Ms Moriarty has quickly deleted her twitter account.  How shocking…  People will do anything for instagram likes.  And that’s depraved.

She Should Have Been Fired, And She Was

The ‘call the cops on the people of color just because they’re around me’ nonsense has to stop, and the only way it will is if these racists are fired when they are exposed.  The only language racists comprehend is the language of money.

video of a woman in Central Park calling New York police on a black man who says he asked her to leash her dog has gone viral, and the woman has been fired from her job with Franklin Templeton.

The incident occurred Monday in the Ramble, a wooded area of Central Park where dogs are required to be on leashes.

Christian Cooper, who is black, said he was bird-watching in the area when he saw Amy Cooper, who is white, with her dog. Christian Cooper wrote on Facebook that the dog was going “through the plantings.” He approached the woman and asked that she leash the animal, he said.

In the video, Amy Cooper refused and called 911, telling the operator that “there is an African American man. I am in Central Park. He is recording me and threatening myself and my dog.” At one point, Cooper shouts to the operator, “Please send the cops immediately.”

The video has been viewed more than 20 million times on Twitter, shared by Christian Cooper’s sister Melody.

The video quickly drew reactions online and Amy Cooper has since apologized. Her employer, asset management firm Franklin Templeton, placed her on administrative leave before she was fired Tuesday.

Good.
