Total Depravity: The Baptist Deacon (And Alabama Governor) Edition

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has resigned after pleading guilty to abusing his office, allegedly to conceal an affair with a political adviser.

Supernumerary District Attorney Ellen Brooks announced Monday that Bentley “pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges: failing to file a major contribution report, in violation of Code of Alabama §17-5-8.1(c); and knowingly converting campaign contributions to personal use, in violation of Code of Alabama §36-25-6.” She added, “He has resigned from office.”

Depravity.  No other word fits.

Total Depravity: The Thieving Fornicating Priest Edition

A Roman Catholic priest who fell in love with his housekeeper defrauded his parish of more than £50,000 while lavishing her and her daughters with gifts. Father John Reid, 70 was supposed to live a simple life, but spent £1,200 on a canteen of cutlery, was a member of the Sunday Times Wine Club and spent £80 on oysters and smoked salmon while holidaying in Scotland.

Jane Waugh, prosecuting, said the priest, now living in Stockton, had joined the parish in 2009 and accounts showed spending increased fourfold in some areas after he took over. She said “female clothing” had been found in the bedrooms and passports belonging to the housekeeper Gillian Leddy and her two daughters had been found in the safe.  The court heard that Fr Reid told police he had fallen in love with Gillian Leddy, and saw her daughters, Veronica and Alice, as “the family that he never had”.

During the inquiry, it emerged that the priest gave property and money to the Leddys on a “large scale”, buying two homes each for Veronica and Alice, a car each and financing a cafe business for them. He also gave them both substantial amounts of cash. But Ms Waugh said the money for these gifts came from an inheritance of the priest, not the result of fraud.  Fr Reid accepted taking the Leddys out to eat “a few times a week”. Over the four years he was at St Cuthbert’s, his basic remuneration should have totalled £31,455.

Etc.  Ick.

Welcome to the Eugenics Program of Adolf Hitler

Because that’s precisely what gender based abortion is.

Forcing pregnant women who do not want a child of one sex or the other to give birth could harm both the baby and the mother’s mental health, a leading doctors’ union member has said.

That’s pure evil.

Prof Wendy Savage, a voting member of the British Medical Association Council, also said women should have the right to terminate a pregnancy at any stage.

Well she is certainly well named, because she is a savage.

The comments by Prof Savage, a women’s rights campaigner and retired obstetrician and gynaecologist, come after a proposal to decriminalise terminations passed the first hurdle in the House of Commons last week.

Read the rest.  And welcome to the eugenics program of Adolf Hitler.

#ICYMI: NT Wright Ascends to Heaven From Bible Conference in Houston!

Witnesses say that just before he was seen to fly skyward without a rocket pack, he spread out his arms, and then up he went, shouting ‘buy my giant book which is very much like all my other less giant books or the wrath of God will descend onto your unrighteous heads… sinners…’

wright_ascends

Witness stories diverge at this point but many swear that as he disappeared out of sight through a giant hole in the ceiling created by the hurling of his new book through it that he was received either by Chuck Norris or Ryan Seacrest.

He promised to return.  Oh that we will all still be alive when he does…  Meanwhile, many will come in his name, proclaiming his gospel and urging souls to follow Tom’s teachings (also known as TT).  If you want to get to heaven, and spend eternity with Tom, you have to embrace TT.

Demons Are Real: And they Are Sometimes Disguised as Canadian Mothers

A Canadian woman has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to the murder of her nine-year-old daughter.

Laura Coward was arrested in Alberta, Canada, in August 2014, two days after her daughter Amber Lucius was reported missing. At the time Ms Coward’s divorce from Amber’s father, Duane Lucius, had just been finalised. Mr Lucius was to take full custody of the child.  Ms Coward, who had told friends she was taking Amber stargazing, instead took her daughter to a remote location where she gave her prescription sleeping pills. She then set her SUV on fire, with Amber inside.

The burnt-out vehicle was later discovered by a police officer who found a handwritten note on the outside of the driver’s door reading: “Help me. It was an accident. Locked keys in.”  Following an autopsy, Amber is understood to have died of a combination of hypothermia, smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Calgary judge Justice Scott Brooker, presiding, told the court that the sentence should reflect “society’s disgust and outrage.”  “Amber was completely vulnerable to and trusting of her mother,” he added. “It was the ultimate betrayal and breach of trust for Ms. Coward to kill her daughter.”  Ms Coward will be eligible to apply for parole in 18 years.

Canada needs the death penalty.

‘Mother of the Year’ – Not. This Woman in Labor Demanded an Injection of Meth and Heroin

Police in New Hampshire say a woman in labor demanded to be injected with heroin and methamphetamine before 911 could be called.

Police in Concord arrested 29-year-old Felicia Farruggia this week, about six months after her son was born. The state has custody of him.

Police also arrested 37-year-old Rhianna Frenette, of Belmont, accused of giving Farruggia the drugs. They’re charged with felony reckless conduct; Frenette also faces a misdemeanor count on the same offense.

Police say Frenette used an unsanitary syringe to try to inject Farruggia at least once before she was successful. Firefighters arrived and Farruggia gave birth while entering the ambulance.

Both were held on bail Wednesday. It wasn’t immediately known if they had lawyers.

Take the child and place it in an adoptive family.  This person deserves no children.

Donald Trump Has Gotten Chinese Approval For Brothels and Casinos

I hope the ‘Christians’ supporting Trump realize what kind of person they’ve cast their lot in with.  Although, given their track record, I doubt they care.

Chinese authorities have granted preliminary approval for dozens of Trump-branded businesses, expanding his commercial empire and raising further conflicts of interest, say lawyers. The 38 trademarks include new hotels, spas, escort and concierge services, massage parlors, personal security services and insurance, according to public documents.

The President’s lawyers applied for the trademarks in April last year, at the same time the then Presidential candidate Trump was accusing China of “ripping off” the US and deliberately manipulating its currency to its own advantage.

The question Christians must ask themselves is, what justification is there for their support of this person?

The Pope Thinks Giving Beggars Money for Booze Is Cool

Not the Onion.

Auch Obdachlosen, die jeden Cent in Alkohol investieren, sollte man nach Aussage von Papst Franziskus Almosen nicht verweigern. Wenn ein Schluck Wein das einzige Glück sei, das sie im Leben hätten, “dann ist auch das gut”, sagte der Papst einer Mailänder Obdachlosen-Zeitung.

That’s right Pope Franky, give people the means by which to destroy themselves.  That’s love for sure.  Except it isn’t.  It’s depraved.

Trump’s White House Attempted to Persuade the FBI to Lie

CNN emails

The FBI rejected a recent White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump’s associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign, multiple US officials briefed on the matter tell CNN.  White House officials had sought the help of the bureau and other agencies investigating the Russia matter to say that the reports were wrong and that there had been no contacts, the officials said. The reports of the contacts were first published by The New York Times and CNN on February 14.

Donald Trump is a liar and he wants others to lie for him.  It really is that simple.

This Is Why I Believe in the Death Penalty for Child Abusers

virgo-county-sheriff-s-office-4-arrested-1487865916Four people have been arrested in the death of 9-year-old Indiana boy with cerebral palsy who authorities say was malnourished and neglected. The Vigo County Sheriff’s Office says officers responded Tuesday to a 911 call about a child in cardiac arrest at a home near Fontanet, 60 miles west of Indianapolis. Cameron R. Hoopingarner was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Sheriff Greg Ewing says Cameron was blind and weighed less than 15 pounds. Ewing says it’s “beyond terrible.” State police and sheriff’s officials arrested four people who live at the home, including the child’s two guardians. Charges include neglect of a dependent resulting in death. The four are being held in the Vigo County Jail under a $250,000 bond and are scheduled to face charges in court Thursday afternoon.

They are inhuman.  They are murderers of a child.  They are utterly depraved, without consciences and without any redeeming qualities. They need to be put down, like the rabid animals that they are.

Conservatives and CPAC- Your Hero Milo? He’s A Pederast

Here is the uncut 5 minute video of Milo Yiannopoulos advocating for Pederasty involving “13 Year old” and “older men.” HIS WORDS.

And you admire him for his ‘honesty’ and ‘forthrightness’?  You’re as disgusting as he is if you admire him for his deviance.

Drive Through Funerals

Because now days people don’t have time to get out of their cars to show respect or compassion.

A Memphis funeral home is offering a different service from its competitors. You can drive up, say your final goodbyes to your loved ones, and you don’t even have to get out the car.  Ryan Bernard, owner of R. Bernard funeral home, says he got the idea from a funeral home in California. His main goal is to make it more convenient for families who are already dealing with losing a loved one. Bernard wants his funeral home to stand out from the rest, so his family business is offering drive-thru services.

“Say a family has a visitation from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.. We would put their loved one in the drive-thru viewing area say around 1 p.m. and they will have a drive-thru viewing from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.,” says Bernard.  The service is free for customers with funeral packages, and so far four families have tried it out.

Dreadful selfishness.

Jeffrey Sandusky: Arrested For Child Molestation

Jeffrey Sandusky, the son of convicted sex abuser and former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, has been arrested on felony and misdemeanor child sexual abuse charges, according to court documents from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  The younger Sandusky, 41, faces 14 counts, including sexual assault of a child older than 11, sexual assault of a child less than 16, and a variety of other sexual abuse and child pornography charges. – CNN email.

We often see the molested become molesters.  Who wants to bet that Jerry molested his son and turned him into the same sort of monster he was.  Sin.  It’s passed on from father to son.

That’s Just Wrong

A proposed bill in the Tennessee General Assembly seeks to classify children born through artificial insemination as illegitimate children.  Representative Terry Lynn Weaver (R-Lancaster) proposed HB 1406, which is intended to repeal the current statute regarding children born through artificial insemination.

TCA 68-3-306 provides for the child to be considered the legitimate child of a husband and wife if the child is born through artificial insemination and with the consent of the husband.  “A child born to a married woman as a result of artificial insemination, with consent of the married woman’s husband, is deemed to be the legitimate child of the husband and wife.” (TCA 68-3-306)

However, the bill proposed by Weaver, with the Senate equivalent (SB 1153) proposed by Senator Joey Hensley (R-Hohenwald), would repeal that statute and label the child as illegitimate despite the couple being married and both consenting. 

Terry Lynn Weaver does not belong in office.

Dear Republicans, What’s Wrong With You? When Did You Become So Evil?

c4mzghfwcaehjxpThe Central Michigan University president says he is “deeply disappointed” about an anti-Semitic Valentine’s Day card that was produced during a campus Republican group meeting, then apparently given to a pair of students by a member of that group, which says it was an unsanctioned mistake.

The card was in a bag that was handed to the students Wednesday night by a member of the College Republicans at Central Michigan, which immediately apologized while distancing itself from the incident. The card, which the group called “very inappropriate,” shows Adolf Hitler alongside the words “my love 4 u burns like 6,000 jews,” according to Central Michigan Life, a student newspaper. (An estimated 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazi regime during the Holocaust, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.)

University President George Ross said campus leaders met Thursday morning “to review the situation and determine next steps.”

There’s more here.  I just don’t understand how it’s possible for people to be so – well – evil, that this sort of thing even occurs to them.  Are you sitting in your rooms thinking of ways to demonstrate racism to the whole world?

You aren’t the party of Lincoln or Reagan.  You’re the party of depolorables.

The Hypocrisy of Mitch McConnell is Stunning

On the Senate floor Wednesday night, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) used parliamentary procedure to silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) after she quoted from a letter by Coretta Scott King, preventing her from reading it.

Later in the night, however, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) elaborated on the context of the letter and quoted from it at length unimpeded.

The letter was addressed to then-Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-SC) in 1986. In it, King objects to Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) nomination to be a federal judge due to his use of “the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens.” King continues, “Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of this office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters.”

McConnell objected to Warren citing this section of the letter, saying that she had “impugned the motives and conduct of our colleague from Alabama.”

He then invoked Rule 19 to stop Warren from speaking on Sessions for the duration of the debate. The motion passed the Senate on the strength of Republican votes.

A few hours later, however, Sen. Merkely took the floor and quoted from the letter at length. Though the floor was largely empty, there is always a member of the majority party — the Republicans — presiding.

Stunning.

Total Depravity: Two Shameful Pastors in the News This Week Edition

Police: Florida pastor caught with man’s wife, flees naked

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A police report says a prominent Florida pastor was forced to run out of a house naked after a woman’s husband came home to find him having sex with his wife. The Tallahassee Democrat reports (http://on.tdo.com/2kmThSX ) police documents show a woman’s husband found her in bed with Pastor O. Jermaine Simmons in the middle of the afternoon on Jan. 17. The woman told police that her husband yelled that he was going to kill Simmons, who fled the apartment naked and hid behind a nearby fence. The husband took the pastor’s clothes, wallet and car keys and later agreed to return the items following negotiations with police. Video posted online shows Simmons asking for forgiveness from his congregation at Tallahassee’s Jacob Chapel, saying “you cannot defend sin.”

Connecticut pastor charged with stealing $8K in electricity

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ The pastor of a Connecticut church has been charged with stealing about $8,000 worth of electricity. The Connecticut Post (http://bit.ly/2k3gYik ) reports that Bishop William Marshall, pastor of City of Life Worship and Deliverance Center in Bridgeport, was charged with third-degree larceny. Marshall, who was released on a promise to appear in court, did not return calls for comment. Authorities say investigators for United Illuminating Co. had checked a meter at a building where Marshall was operating a barbershop in October. Police say even though power to the barbershop had been disconnected in 2013 for failure to pay a $4,000 bill, it appeared that electricity was still being delivered. Investigators say the meter had been illegally reconnected, powering the barbershop but not registering the service on the meter.

The Bee Stings the ‘People are Basically Good’ Nonsense

Researchers at MIT revealed Friday they were still unable to locate mankind’s innate moral goodness, despite a $20 million federal government grant to scour every cell of the human body to locate the rumored decency with which every human is born.

During a recent interview with a national science journal, researchers intently stared into a high-powered microscope, furrowing their brows as they looked over yet another piece of the human body at the cellular level. But they remained unsuccessful in their attempt to find proof that every person is born morally upright.

“We thought we found it a few months back, but that turned out to be a dark, sinful nature infecting the tissue we were working with,” head researcher Dr. Flynn Albietz told reporters. “Same results we’ve always gotten.”

“We’re staying positive and we believe we’ll find the inherent goodness everyone supposedly has in their hearts pretty soon. It’s got to be in there somewhere—Gandhi said so, after all,” he added.

At publishing time, MIT’s research department had applied for a further $20 million in federal funding to search for the elusive goodness within mankind, stating the project had proven to be much more difficult than they had originally anticipated.

They won’t find it because it doesn’t exist.
