Well That’s a Bad Vicar

Church of England vicar is caught on video ‘inhaling from a crack pipe and discussing prostitutes as he says ‘I’m a very happy man”

He misspelled depraved.

A Church of England vicar has apparently been caught on video inhaling from a crack pipe and discussing prostitutes. Footage seems to show the Rev Stennett Kirby, a vicar in East London, snorting cocaine and saying: ‘I’m a very happy man’.

The 64-year-old priest was seen sitting on a sofa with a friend and apparently watching porn and talking about escorts, according to The Sun on Sunday. Mr Kirby is the vicar of West Ham Parish Church in Stratford and has held the position since 2007. The video reportedly shows him lighting up a pipe and separately snorting powdered cocaine.  He is said to have talked about paying for a female escort, saying: ‘I wish I could. If I had money, I would. I’ve only got £10 left.’

One can only imagine how popular he will now become…

Why Are Teens Dumber Today?

leave a comment »

Police say a teen is in critical condition after he was shot in the head during a YouTube challenge.  The shooting occurred when three individuals in a Memphis cafe performed the “No Lackin Challenge,” where two individuals pull guns on each other without firing a shot, according to WMC-TV.  But an affidavit says 21-year-old Sherman Lackland accidentally fired his weapon, hitting the 17-year-old teen across from him in the head.  “A real loud bang, then I see the guy across from him fall in the floor,” Thomas Fitzpatrick told WMC-TV.  Lackland is charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of a weapon.

I guess the old ‘if your friends jumped off a bridge would you do it?’ is answered in the affirmative by today’s daft and witless teen.

If You Think Trump is a Role Model, You Lack Morals and Ethics

leave a comment »

And yet

“Republicans say 72 – 22 percent that Trump is a good role model for children.”

Such persons are completely lacking in any moral center or ethical sense.  Unless your goal is total depravity, in which case you’ve chosen the ideal guide.

Oh the Irish…

An Irish woman fed up with searching for the perfect man has married the ghost of a 300-year-old pirate instead – and says he’s her “soulmate”.

Amanda Teague, from Drogheda in Co Louth, has married a Haitian pirate named Jack who died in the 1700s, and the fact he’s dead doesn’t bother her.

The 45-year-old’s friends and family attended the wedding on a boat off the Irish coast. The couple then went on honeymoon to the North.

Amanda, who now lives in Downpatrick, near Belfast, insists they are like any ordinary couple, they have arguments, go on dates – and even have sex.

Yeah, she’s as batty as the people who ‘marry’ cars or bridges or dogs.  Has she ever considered the notion that maybe she’s not a prize catch herself, which is why she can’t find a willing guy?

You Probably Should Believe in Everlasting Torment…

Because some people really deserve it.

Two Southern California parents are being held on $9 million bail each after a horrific discovery over the weekend at a residence in Perris, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said Monday.

An investigation began after a 17-year-old girl “escaped” early Sunday morning from her home in the 100 block of Muir Woods Road and called 911 to report her 12 brothers and sisters were being held captive by their parents, according to a sheriff’s news release.

She alleged some of her siblings were bound in padlocked chains.

Responding officers initially believed the “slightly emaciated” girl was only 10 years old until she provided her age.

After interviewing the teen, investigators went to the residence and contacted her parents, identified as 56-year-old David Allen Turpin and 49-year-old Louise Anna Turpin, according to the release.

Investigators discovered “several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings,” the release said. The parents could not provide a “logical” explanation for why the kids were restrained, investigators said.

Authorities located what they thought were 12 children but were “shocked” to find out seven of them were adults. In all, the victims are between the ages of 2 and 29, the release stated.

They looked to be malnourished and filthy, authorities said.

Yes.  Some people definitely deserve it.

A new social media challenge is concerning health experts.

The challenge is encouraging teens to put laundry pods into their mouths. Some teens have bit the pods in videos shared online.

Consuming laundry pods can burn your mouth, lips, breathing tube and more. It can also cause damage to the central nervous system.

The American Association of Poison Control Centers says families should talk to their teens about the risks.

Kids…. so dim.

Yoder and the Ick Factor


yoder“During the mid-1970s, John Howard Yoder embarked on an experiment in sexuality, devising his own guidelines and selecting his own subjects, whom he called ‘sisters.’ Following a three-year term as president of Goshen (Ind.) Biblical Seminary, he developed ‘the notion of a distinction between two dimensions of sexuality, the familiar and the genital.’ Yoder speculated that people plagued either by inhibitions about sexual intercourse or by promiscuity would have difficulty attaining what he termed ‘the freedom of the gospel,’ which he linked to Jesus’ encounters with women. In a series of essays that he circulated on the seminary campus and beyond, Yoder speculated about Jesus’ sexuality as a model for his disciples, for the men who followed in his path. Nearly two decades later, in 1992, a denominational task force established by leaders in Yoder’s congregation, Prairie Street Mennonite Church in Elkhart, Ind., confronted him with 13 charges of sexual abuse.”

It’s simply fascinating the twists and turns the mind will make in order to justify the most perverse behavior.  If you want to see that kind of twisted mind in action, read the whole essay.  Stunning.  Not only because of what Yoder did, but because so many turned a blind eye to it.

The 22 Year Old Killed By His Father, Who Shot Him Because He Thought He Was A Thief…

Family and friends of 22-year-old Logan Trammell gathered to remember the young musician after an accidental shooting took his life on Christmas Eve.

Trammell’s family says he was driving away from his parents home around 11:30 p.m. on December 24 in one of his father’s vehicles. His father was unaware that his son was borrowing his truck. Fearing the vehicle was being stolen, the family says he fired several rounds from a handgun at the tailgate of the truck. Once the vehicle stopped, they say his father realized he had accidentally shot his own son.

“He still never realized it was Logan, until he got the door open and he realized who is was,” Tammy Jacobs, Trammell’s aunt, said.

Because a truck is always more important than a life…  “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matt. 6:24)

What Devil Inhabits Such Souls…

Such evil.

An Oklahoma man is facing charges after police say he beat his girlfriend’s five-year-old son because the child opened a Christmas present early.

KJRH reports the mother’s boyfriend was watching her children while she went Christmas shopping over the weekend. When she got home, she saw bruises on the child’s arms and back, welts on his forehead and what appeared to be a handprint on his cheek.

In a Facebook post, the mother wrote, “Words cannot explain seeing your baby like this and having no clue what happened. I ran to him like any mother would do crying, hugging him, begging what happened. ‘Wesley hurt me bad mama,’ is all he kept saying.”

The mother told KJRH her boyfriend, 25-year-old Wesley McCollum, told her he was trying to teach the boy a lesson for opening a Christmas present early.

McCollum was arrested and charged with child neglect and child abuse, according to police records.

“For a grown man to punch a child over and over and slap him and beat him with a belt ALL over is no man at all,” she wrote. “He is the lowest scum on earth…”

And under the earth….

Booze it Up at the Funeral Home

Good grief.

A Wisconsin couple intends to put the “fun” in “funeral” by legally serving alcohol inside a new Milwaukee area funeral home and event complex currently expected to open early next year.

The owners of Integrity Funeral Services in Rochester, Minn., recently received approval to sell alcohol at a nearly 6,000-square-foot facility slated for construction in Burlington, about 40 miles southwest of Milwaukee, the city’s local CBS affiliate reported Tuesday.

And when their new Integrity Celebrations facility opens in February, its proprietors expect mourners will wet their whistles while paying their last respects.

This is The Guy Who, Along With Paige Patterson, Led the Fundamentalist Destruction of SEBTS

So I am not at all surprised that Paul Pressler was doing vile things all those years.  He gave off a super creepy vibe every time he was around SEBTS in the late 80’s.

Former Texas state judge and lawmaker Paul Pressler has been hit with a lawsuit that alleges he molested a man over the course of 35 years.

Pressler, a former justice on the 14th Court of Appeals, who served in the Texas House from 1957 to 1959, vehemently denied the allegations by Gareld Duane Rollins, who claims that Pressler began molesting him in 1979, when he was 14, through the year 2014.

The suit also names Pressler’s wife, Nancy, his law partner Jared Woodfill, the First Baptist Church of Houston, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and its president, the Rev. Paige Patterson. Rollins seeks $1 million in damages.

The suit was filed in Harris County on Oct. 18 and obtained by Quorum Report on Monday.

Woodfill told the outlet the suit was an attempt to “extort money from the Southern Baptist Convention” and vowed to “fight it tooth and nail.”

The suit alleges that Rollins and Pressler met when the former attended First Baptist Church, where Pressler held volunteer leadership roles. The suit alleges that Pressler enrolled Rollins in Bible study and began molesting and raping him in his master bedroom study.

The suit also alleges that Pressler told Rollins he could stop at any time, but that Rollins thought God had sanctioned the rapes. The suit says the molestation occurred two to three times per month while Rollins attended college.

When Pressler/ Patterson and their fundamentalist board of Trustees arrived at SEBTS in the mid 80’s they did everything they could to rid the school of any Professor who wasn’t a dyed in the wool ‘axhead floating on water, for real’ fundamentalist.  The good folk left and the school that remained was a shell of its former greatness.  The two of them, and their mindless minions, destroyed a truly great institution of higher learning.  I’ll never forget what they did, nor will I be surprised when it turns out that Pressler was a deviant all along.

Roy Moore: Adulterer

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore’s account of when he began dating his wife Kayla would place the start of their courtship before her divorce from her first husband, according to court documents.

This comes as the Moore campaign’s defense of the retired judge against multiple allegations of sexual misconduct hinges on disputing minute details of the accusers’ versions of events.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Washington Examiner asked Moore’s campaign to explain apparent contradictions between his account of his relationship with Kayla Kisor and information contained in public records.

So add adulterer to his resume as child molester and Constitution rejecting pseudo-judge.  You Alabama Christians sure know how to pick ’em, don’t you….

More Pentebabbleist Misconduct

A Broken Arrow man used the phone number associated with a ministry he leads in advertisements for a house of prostitution, according to police.  Tulsa County prosecutors on Wednesday charged Walter Eugene Brazington Jr. — identified as a minister for a group in Broken Arrow — with procuring for prostitution and possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony, according to court records.  Brazington, 55, attempted to “encourage, induce or persuade women to become inmates of a house of prostitution,” the charges state.  Broken Arrow police allege that Brazington operated the house at 804C S. Ninth St. under the guise of a massage parlor.

Ugh.  Pentebabbleists.

Which Is More Cruel, To Execute a Serial Molester or to Let Him Continue to Molest?

Execution is the best way forward in cases such as these, because this molester will never stop molesting.

It was 3 in the morning, and a California woman was attempting to flag down a police officer; she wanted to report that her son just told her he had molested two boys.  The confession would go much deeper once Riverside police detained 18-year-old Joseph Boston on Saturday, authorities say. Not only did he confess to sexually assaulting 4- and 8-year-old boys at a $65-a-night motel room about a mile away from the police station, but he also admitted molesting “upwards of 50 children since he was 10 years old in different cities where he had lived,” according to Riverside police.

Read the horrible rest and then decide whether you think ending his life is worse than allowing him to destroy countless others.

Total Depravity: The Church That Just Compared Roy Moore, Child Molester, to Jesus

1- Jesus and Roy Moore don’t belong in the same category.  Not even remotely.

2- A Church urging people to vote for a particular person?  Nope.  That’s not a Church.  That’s a cult.  A political cult.  The ‘Pastor’ of that group is no theologian.

NB- With thanks to Juan for the pic on the twitter.
