    I’m calling bullshit


    I’m wrong for setting firm boundaries and disciplining my children, but I’m wrong if I fail to set firm boundaries and discipline my child.

    Fuck all y’all. I’ll raise my kids the way I know how.

    I’m guessing this is in reference to Adrian Peterson, so if it’s not, then please pardon me.

    I think there’s a stark difference between physically disciplining a child and child abuse.  My parents spanked me a time or two growing up, but they never left a mark on my body, and punishment never progressed to a spanking unless I had screwed up repeatedly and had the correct way of acting explained to me beforehand.  Spanking was a punishment reserved for when I knowingly and willfully acted in a way that was wrong. (And I credit it with helping me become a better person, frankly.)

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with spanking, but if those photos are legitimate, then there’s no excuse for the way he treated his son.

    About the Arizona (of course, Arizona) family that got lost at sea “trying to see where God would lead them”.

    Why aren’t these people in jail for child abuse and endangerment?

    And why can’t we just re-set them adrift in the ocean if they’re so stupid and reckless as to pile their kids in a boat and just randomly sail into the middle of nowhere?

    Freedom of religion does not permit you to take deadly risks with the lives of your kids, and we as a country really need to start throwing the book at these idiotic bastards.

    Does anyone else laugh when their Catholic friends whine about Anthony Weiner’s sexting?

    In the back of my mind, I just think… you guys carry water for a criminal organization that willfully and knowingly protects sexual predators, whereas Anthony Weiner hasn’t even !@#$ing touched someone.

    I think the scariest thing about films like ‘The Conjuring’ is that a contingent of folks watch them, believe that crap, and then pull shit like this.

    And then there’s this:

    According to Shortt’s summary of the evidence, Guzman-Rodriquez told police that a “bad spirit” had entered him. He said that he saw his daughter gesturing to him, as if she wanted to fight and that he punched her “over and over” with his bare hands, Shortt said.

    That is absolutely sickening.


    Pope will remain in Vatican to avoid prosecution for child sex abuse

    I don’t know why anyone allows their children around these people.

    So, mega-pastor Creflo Dollar beat and strangled his fifteen year-old daughter, hmm?

    One of the really fucked up things about Christianity is that there is ample evidence in the Bible to justify the abuse of one’s children, and with the reverend’s financial resources, it’s pretty likely he’ll get away with doing this.  

    Funny how our so-called ‘Christian’ nation overlooks or hands out lesser sentences for child abuse, but if your only crime is puffing on a cigarette that has marijuana in it you can be jailed for decades, lose your right to vote, be barred from getting education assistance, and any number of other punishments that relegate you to second-class citizenship.

    Vatican: Bishops don’t have to report child abuse to the police according to new guidelines


    The Italian Bishop’s Conference (CIE) has issued guidelines on child protection that inform its bishops that they are ‘not obliged to report illicit facts’ of child abuse to the police.

    The new guidelines were released recently after the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith advised every Bishop Conference to create a document covering Child Protection if they did not already have one.

    One of the conferences that was void of such documentation was the CEI which works under Pope Benedict XVI.

    In their new five page document which advised Italian Bishops on how to deal with paedophilia they failed to focus on one of the most important and obvious means of combating the crime – informing police authorities.

    And with that, I will no longer tolerate anyone trying to defend the institutionalized protection of sexual predators in the Catholic Church.  If they’re not ashamed enough to even try and hide it, why should anyone act as if the church is immune from criticism?

    Buy your way to Heaven! The Catholic Church brings back indulgences

    These days, you can get a deal on anything. Even salvation! Pope Benedict has announced that his faithful can once again pay the Catholic Church to ease their way through Purgatory and into the Gates of Heaven. 

    I wonder if they give a group rate discount to sexual predators?

    Catholic Priests Oppose ‘Report Pedophilia’ Bill in Ireland

    Ireland’s Justice Minister Alan Shatter is planning to introduce legislation later this year that would put people in jail for 10 years if they withheld information that would help prosecute a child abuser.

    Conformity to religious dogma is more important than protecting children and exposing sexual predators in the Catholic Church.

    Philadelphia sex abuse trial: Priest joked about having sex with three boys in one week.

    I shouldn’t be shocked that so many leaders of the Catholic Church brush things like this aside, but really, something this vile was simply hidden away in a secret file?  If something like this ever came across my desk, not only would I be calling the police, I’d have to restrain myself from taking a baseball bat and bashing this monster’s head in. 

    Catholics, how is it that you can support an organization that systematically covers up the rape and abuse of children?  Here in Kansas City, there are legal proceedings underway to hold a bishop accountable for knowingly protecting a sexual predator. (As in, he knew definitively the priest had abused children and did not notify the authorities.) In Philly, there are two dozen priests under the microscope for their actions. Even the Pope himself has been involved in the transfer of priests and coverups of sexual abuse
