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.

People….

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.

The Disciples of Roy Moore Are Disciples of Satan

“Or in other words, I’d be mad at him but I’d vote for him anyway.”

I don’t know who this Tully Borland creature is, but I think her or his children should be removed from the home and allowed to live with someone who actually cares for them.

The disciples of Moore are sick, sickening people.  I can’t even comprehend the evil resident in their hearts and minds.

If you don’t believe in Total Depravity, you’re a fool.

These Self Exposing ‘Family Values’ Reprobates Need to All Go

Texas Congressman Joe Barton released a statement Wednesday apologizing for a graphic nude photo of him that circulated on social media earlier this week. He announced his re-election bid earlier this month.

“While separated from my second wife, prior to the divorce, I had sexual relationships with other mature adult women,” he said. “Each was consensual. Those relationships have ended. I am sorry I did not use better judgment during those days. I am sorry that I let my constituents down.”

Barton, who announced his re-election bid earlier this month, is navigating in a political environment charged with emerging stories of sexual misbehavior in politics, in business, and in the media. The photo, which appeared on an anonymous Twitter account, set off speculation within Texas GOP circles about his political future.

So, he’s divorced; having extramarital adulterous sexual relations; and sending photos of his naked gross old self to someone.  So much for ‘family values’.  But of course no one in the @GOP has had any morals for decades.

And the people who excoriated Bill Clinton and thought he should be impeached for an Oval office wing-to-do will support this guy with their votes and their ‘prayers’ and their ‘understanding’ (because no one is perfect and Jeeeeesus forgives)…  Sickening hypocrites.  Totally depraved politicians supported by totally depraved voters- that’s the new motto of the @GOP.

Ralph Shortey: The ‘Family Values’ Republican Who Has Been Charged With Child Sex Trafficking

A former Oklahoma state senator has pleaded guilty to a child sex trafficking charge, The Oklahoman reported Saturday.

Former state Sen. Ralph Shortey, a Republican, had been accused of offering to pay a 17-year-old boy for “‘sexual’ stuff” earlier this year. Federal prosecutors will drop three additional child pornography charges against him in exchange for his guilty plea.

“It is in my best interest and in the best interest of my family,” the former state senator wrote in a plea deal paperwork signed this week, according to the Oklahoman.

By pleading guilty, Shortey is hoping to receive a lighter sentence. Child sex trafficking carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison, and a maximum sentence of life in prison. U.S. District Judge Timothy DeGiusti will sentence Shortey next year.

Shortey was first elected to the Oklahoma state Senate in 2010. He resigned from his office on March 22, two weeks after being found in a motel room with a 17-year-old boy.

Shortey and the victim had first met on Craigslist a year earlier. According to the Oklahoman, the two carried on conversations via the messaging app Kik before going to the motel.

Reprobate.

Godlessness

Hidden camera tells true story of how veteran died after calling for help, gasping for air

The video shows the decorated World War II veteran calling for help six times before he goes unconscious while gasping for air. An 11Alive investigation uncovered hidden camera video catching nursing home staff laughing while an elderly patient dies in front of them. The incident happened at the Northeast Atlanta Health and Rehabilitation in 2014, but the video was recently released as part of a lawsuit filed by the family. Attorneys representing the Atlanta nursing home tried to prevent 11Alive from obtaining the video. They asked a DeKalb County judge to keep the video sealed and then attempted to appeal to the Georgia State Supreme Court. The judge ruled in favor of 11Alive and the nursing home eventually dropped its appeal to the state’s highest court.

What heartless godlessness.

Total Depravity: Or, Why, Once Again, Unmarried Teens Ought Not Have Children

Police say a three-month-old baby whose mother dangled him over a balcony at apartment complex in Knoxville died from his injuries. His mother, 19-year-old Tierra Patrice Williamson now faces first degree murder charges in his death.

Stop it, you monsters.

GOP Hypocrisy: The Fake Christian Politician

An Ohio lawmaker who routinely touted his Christian faith and anti-LGBT views has resigned after being caught having sex with a man in his office.  Wes Goodman, who is the Republican state legislator for Ohio, is married to a woman who is assistant director of an annual anti-abortion rally known as March for Life.

The right-wing legislator, who pushed “family values”, was reportedly witnessed having sex with a man inside his office who was not employed by the legislator.  According to the Columbus Dispatch, the observer told Ohio House Chief of Staff Mike Dittoe what had happened on Tuesday afternoon. Mr Dittoe responded by telling House Speaker Republican Cliff Rosenberger who in turn met with Mr Goodman.

The 33-year-old, who has been branded the “conscience of the conservative movement”, resigned for “inappropriate conduct” shortly after the meeting took place.  Mr Goodman, whose Twitter biography describes him as “Christian. American. Conservative. Republican. Husband to @Beth1027”, has regularly claimed “natural marriage” occurs between a man and a woman.

“Healthy, vibrant, thriving, values-driven families are the source of Ohio’s proud history and the key to Ohio’s future greatness,” reads his campaign website which has now been taken offline.  “The ideals of a loving father and mother, a committed natural marriage, and a caring community are well worth pursuing and protecting.”

Mr Goodman was elected to represent the 87th District, in north-central Ohio, just last year. Prior to that, he worked as an aide to US Representative Jim Jordan, a highly conservative, anti-LGBT Republican. The Human Rights Campaign, the largest LGBT advocacy group in the US, named Mr Jordan in their Hall of Shame in 2014 for attempting to block marriage equality in the District of Columbia.

Mr Goodman, whose Twitter is now private and whose Facebook page has been taken offline, expressed his commitment to so-called family values in a statement back in 2013. “Faith, family, service, stewardship, strong education, and investment in our local communities are what Ohioans value. My wife Bethany and I value those same things and are ready to get to work to serve you,” he said.

The lawmaker acknowledged he was stepping down in a statement. “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life,” he said.  “That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service,” he continued. “For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry. As I move onto the next chapter of my life, I sincerely ask for privacy for myself, my family, and my friends.”

“I was alerted to details yesterday afternoon regarding his involvement in inappropriate behaviour related to his state office,” Mr Rosenberger said in a statement. “I met with him later in the day where he acknowledged and confirmed the allegations. It became clear that his resignation was the most appropriate course of action for him, his family, the constituents of the 87th House District and this institution.”

Good grief.  Fake Christian and fake husband and fake politician and fake, fake, fake.

When Any Nut Who Wants a Gun Can Get a Gun…

You get this-

Kevin Neal’s deadly shooting rampage in Northern California may have been prompted by the fatal shooting of his wife, Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said Wednesday.

Neal, identified as the gunman who killed four people in a string of shootings Tuesday, shot and killed his wife the previous night and concealed her body under a floor in his home, the assistant sheriff said. The discovery of his wife’s body brought the death toll to five.

“We believe that’s probably what started this whole event,” Johnston said of the wife’s shooting.

Congress is Jam Packed With Reprobates

CNN reports

Be extra careful of the male lawmakers who sleep in their offices — they can be trouble. Avoid finding yourself alone with a congressman or senator in elevators, late-night meetings or events where alcohol is flowing. And think twice before speaking out about sexual harassment from a boss — it could cost you your career.

These are a few of the unwritten rules that some female lawmakers, staff and interns say they follow on Capitol Hill, where they say harassment and coercion is pervasive on both sides of the rotunda.

There is also the “creep list” — an informal roster passed along by word-of-mouth, consisting of the male members most notorious for inappropriate behavior, ranging from making sexually suggestive comments or gestures to seeking physical relations with younger employees and interns.

CNN spoke with more than 50 lawmakers, current and former Hill aides and political veterans who have worked in Congress, the majority of whom spoke anonymously to be candid and avoid potential repercussions. With few exceptions, every person said they have personally experienced sexual harassment on the Hill or know of others who have.

What a sick bunch.  Sick and perverse.

Roy Moore’s Wife Posts Letter of Support And Just Two Pastors Want their Names Removed

Here’s the ongoing saga.

Kayla Moore, wife of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, shared a letter on Facebook over the weekend indicating support from more than 50 Alabama pastors. Not all the pastors said they gave permission for their name to be be used on what appears to be a recycled letter from before the GOP primary, however.

Moore’s wife Kayla posted the letter to her Facebook page Sundayafter days of controversy surrounding her husband and allegations he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old in 1979 when he was 32-years-old. Three other women said Moore pursued them as teenagers. The letter was posted before a fifth woman, Beverly Young Nelson, came forward with additional charges Monday.

After the letter was published on AL.com, Tijuanna Adetunji of the Fresh Anointing House of Worship in Montgomery, said she was not contacted about the letter and did not give permission for her name to be used.

“I was not asked about this story or allegations,” Adetunji said.

The letter appears to be a version of one already posted on Moore’s campaign website. That letter, posted prior to the primary, contains all the same wording as below but with three extra paragraphs at the top, including a sentence referencing the Aug. 15 vote.

Pastor Thad Endicott said he was not contacted about the most recent post from Kayla Moore.

“The list that has recently circulated was evidently copied and pasted from the August endorsements without checking to see if I still endorsed Moore,” said Endicott.

Endicott, pastor at Heritage Baptist Church, asked that his name be removed from the Moore endorsement.

Moore’s campaign did not respond to questions related to the letter or why it was posted with the date and identifying information removed. At least one of the pastors listed as supporting Moore is no longer at the church listed on the letter.

So Moore’s wife is just as disingenuous and manipulative as he is.  Why is it that everyone who identifies themselves as supporters of Donald Trump are willing to be as deceptive and manipulative as necessary to achieve the Trumpian agenda?  What’s wrong with Christians who act this way?  Because there definitely is something wrong with them.

The Perverse Attempt of The Perverse Roy Moore to Enlist Breitbart’s Help in Killing the Molestation Story

Read it here.

Roy Moore, the Republican Party’s senate candidate in Alabama, went to Steve Bannon’s Breitbart in an attempt to head off accusations of child molestation that are now surfacing.

Moore has been an icon of the conservative movement for years. He has beat the drum in opposition to marriage equality between consenting adults, claiming it would lead to “multiple marriages” or possibly “marriages between men and their daughters or women and their sons.”

Moore now stands accused of child molestation, and has been caught desperately trying to get his conservative allies to cover up the bombshell news story for him.

An email inquiry from a Washington Post reporter was forwarded to Breitbart, which quickly put together a story defending Moore. The right-wing propaganda site positioned the serious allegations against Moore as coming after the Post’s editorial board endorsed Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate.

But the effort is likely to backfire, and underlines the seriousness of the claims against Moore.

Moore should be arrested and when convicted, imprisoned to the fullest extent of the law.  The vile hypocrite, traipsing around the country pretending to be Godly with his 10 Commandments crusade.  Vile and disgusting wretch.

Judge Roy Moore, Republican, Candidate For the Senate from Alabama, and, Naturally, Child Molester

Leigh Corfman says she was 14 years old when an older man approached her outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Ala. She was sitting on a wooden bench with her mother, they both recall, when the man introduced himself as Roy Moore.

It was early 1979 and Moore — now the Republican nominee in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat — was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney. He struck up a conversation, Corfman and her mother say, and offered to watch the girl while her mother went inside for a child custody hearing.

“He said, ‘Oh, you don’t want her to go in there and hear all that. I’ll stay out here with her,’ ” says Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71. “I thought, how nice for him to want to take care of my little girl.”

Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear.

“I wanted it over with — I wanted out,” she remembers thinking. “Please just get this over with. Whatever this is, just get it over.” Corfman says she asked Moore to take her home, and he did.

Two of Corfman’s childhood friends say she told them at the time that she was seeing an older man, and one says Corfman identified the man as Moore. Wells says her daughter told her about the encounter more than a decade later, as Moore was becoming more prominent as a local judge.

Read the rest.  There’s just something about these far right authoritarians (and one’s on the far left too, right Harvey Weinstein) that makes them sexual predators.  There’s a special place in hell for all of them.
