Georgia GOP Lawmaker Used Legal Loophole to Help Molesting **Priest** Avoid Prison

** Edit note:  The title uses the word “priest” while the article clearly says that Jason Brothers was a Preacher.   Sorry for any confusions.  Hugs **

Georgia GOP Lawmaker Used Legal Loophole to Help Molesting Priest Avoid Prison

In 2012, Ohio preacher Jason Brothers stayed at the home of a family in Georgia when he was giving a guest sermon at North Mt. Zion Church of God in Hiawassee. When the family’s 14-year-old girl got up for a drink of water that night, Brothers, who was in a wheelchair due to his cerebral palsy, asked her for a hug… then raped her.

The girl only told her parents what happened after they caught her trying to end her own life.

This week, Jason Brothers was sentenced for his crime. The punishment involves no prison time, going back home to Ohio, and remaining on probation for another four years. In other words, nothing of any consequence even though he admitted to two counts of felony sexual battery on a minor.

The reason for that has everything to do with his attorney: Republican House Speaker David Ralston.

And what was Ralston doing when he requested these delays for state business?

Two complaints with the State Bar of Georgia filed by victims in other cases have accused him of campaigning and fundraising when he told judges he couldn’t come to court; Ralston has defended that practice, too, telling The Augusta Chronicle he’d think about stopping “if George Soros will promise that he will not send any more money into Georgia.”

*** Edited to include this information.   Hugs ***

The AJC and Channel 2 also note that, since Ralston became House Speaker in 2010, “he cited his legislative responsibilities to delay 226 cases a total of 966 times.” They also note that he expanded the legal loophole so delays could be granted year-round instead of just when the legislature was in session.

Another Christian in authority demanding everyone follow his god and religion

Air Force Capt.: Military Chaplains Who Don’t Proselytize Aren’t True Christians

Air Force Capt.: Military Chaplains Who Don’t Proselytize Aren’t True Christians

But Sonny Hernandez, a U.S. Air Force chaplain who works at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, disagrees. Not only does he think chaplains should promote Christianity on the clock, he believes those who don’t aren’t truly Christian.

In yet another bizarre rant on WND, Hernandez argued that Christian chaplains who aren’t promoting their personal views at every turn are cowards.

Tragically today, many military chaplains intentionally do not pray in Jesus’ name. As disgusting as this may sound, it is a very common practice today among military chaplains — among both liberal and conservative ones. These “non-sectarian” prayers are now the norm within military chaplaincy as the vast majority of chaplains have abdicated the name of Jesus due to fear and shame.

Even worse, false teachers… who masquerade as Christian military chaplains will invariably omit the name of Jesus and will argue that no chaplain should ever deliver such “sectarian” prayers publicly. Since these kinds of chaplains have not been truly born again, they will also often support homosexuality, Islam, or Mikey Weinstein and his anti-God foundation. To put it simply, a false teacher that operates under the guise of Christian chaplain will love the things that God hates while hating the things that God loves.

If a Muslim chaplain used his platform to promote Islam, he’d be out of a job immediately — and cause FOX News to talk about Sharia Law for weeks. (I would say imagine a Humanist chaplain doing the same thing… but there are none in the military.)

Incidentally, the Air Force’s own published standards prohibit leaders from “officially endorsing or disapproving of, or extending preferential treatment for any faith, belief, or absence of belief.” Hernandez is obviously breaking that rule. He deserves to be reprimanded for it.

Military chaplains provide a service to others; they cannot be missionaries looking for new recruits.

Another example of a Christian so super happy to take rights away from people , but not to help the children on our border who are in cages.

Brian Brown: New “Natural Law” Commission Provides An “Extraordinary Opening” To Challenge LGBT Rights

Brian Brown: New “Natural Law” Commission Provides An “Extraordinary Opening” To Challenge LGBT Rights

Such wonderfully loving Christians who are in complete denial of what is natural in favor of what they prefer and against what they feel is “icky”.  I am so tired of these assholes trying to take the entire country back hundreds if not thousands of years in the past to force all of us to live by their uninformed fables.   Hugs

Peter Montgomery reports at Right Wing Watch:

Anti-LGBTQ-equality activist Brian Brown declared in a message to supporters on Thursday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s new “Commission on Unalienable Rights” provides Brown’s International Organization for the Family with “an extraordinary opening to push for clear and consistent recognition of the natural family” and “gives us a forum to challenge American foreign policy that has in the past advanced the extreme agenda of the left that has been cloaked in the language of so-called human rights.”

Pompeo’s commission, which was reportedly created without input from the State Department’s existing human rights infrastructure, will bring a “natural law” lens to a reexamination of U.S. human rights policy. As New Ways Ministry’s Bob Shine has noted, “Natural law theory has been used for a long time by Catholic Church leaders and theologians who reject LGBT people’s identities and their relationships.” Natural law theory has various strains, but as applied to sexuality and gender, it essentially argues that people whose sexual expression or gender identity is not “natural,” or who have non-procreative sex, are defying the “natural law” of God.

30 plus years of sexual abuse

Via affidavit in Trump/Epstein rape trial:

“Defendant Trump initiated sexual contact with Plaintiff at four different parties. On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied Plaintiff to a bed, exposed himself to Plaintiff, and then proceeded to forcibly rape Plaintiff. During the course of this savage sexual attack, Plaintiff loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but with no effect. Defendant Trump responded to Plaintiff’s pleas by violently striking Plaintiff in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted.”

Holy, repeat “holy”, crap

Did Trump, because he must brag about himself, just admit to being a pedophile?

If he admits he said it.

Guess who hired 20 year old Jeffrey Epstein, already a two-time college drop-out, to teach at NYC private school Dalton?

Answer: AG William Barr’s father, Donald Barr.

No coincidence Epstein gets lenient sentence with friends like William Barr and Alex Acosta.

Epstein was charged with recruiting dozens of girls, some as young as 13, for massages and sex at his mansion in Palm Beach, Fla. Under a plea deal reached in 2007 with then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, Epstein was given immunity from federal prosecution and pleaded guilty to lesser state charges. The financier served just 13 months in county jail and was granted work release, allowing him to spend his days at his Palm Beach office. Acosta now serves as President Trump’s Labor secretary.

The Republican Swamp is massive.

Pastor Who Works for TN Police Dept. Says Gays Should Be Executed By Police

This is a fascist take over of government by religion.  When they get done coming for the LGBTQ+ they will come for all the rest who do not worship the hateful vengeance smiting god they do.   Ready for Christian Sharia laws?   Hugs

Pastor Who Works for TN Police Dept. Says Gays Should Be Executed By Police

Last week, Pastor Greg Fritts did what so many of these nasty pastors (Nastors?) do and said the Bible calls for the execution of LGBTQ people at the hands of the government.

… The Bible says that they’re worthy of death. The Bible says that the government — somebody stands up, “Oh, I’m LGBTQ” — here’s how it should work: It shouldn’t work where we go out and we enforce the laws, because the Bible says the powers that be are ordained of God, and God has instilled the power of civil government to send the police in 2019 out to these LGBT freaks and arrest them and have a trial for them and if they are convicted than they are to be put to death.

Do you understand that? It is a capital crime that should be carried out by our government. Not Christians… unless you’re a policeman, you know what I mean? If you’re a policeman, then you know what? It should be your responsibility to carry these things out

Oh, by the way, Fritts works for a police department.

No wonder he laughed as he talked about how the police should be executing gay people.

These pastors always say they’re speaking in hypotheticals — about what the Bible says we ought to do — and that they are not inciting their congregations to kill gay people. But considering the people who attend these churches have even less of a reason to hold back, it won’t be long before one of them takes matters into his own hands.

For a law enforcement official to brag about how law enforcement officials have a biblical right to murder gay people is truly frightening. No LGBTQ person should feel safe when this is the sort of person Knox County hires to protect them.

Another Christian hate cult wants to kill LGBTQ and cheered doing it in Florida if demonstrators against them show up.

Christian Hate-Preachers Are Hosting a “Make America Straight Again” Event

Christian Hate-Preachers Are Hosting a “Make America Straight Again” Event

This Friday, a group of New Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (NIFB) preachers will be hosting a “Make America Straight Again” conference, spreading their anti-LGBTQ bigotry in the name of Christ.

The speakers include all kinds of despicable human beings.

There’s Steven Anderson, who celebrated the massacre as soon as it happened because there were “50 less pedophiles in this world.” He added that he’s “not gonna sit here and cry about it and say it’s a tragedy, because it’s not.” He’s also said if he could push a button and kill every homosexual, he would “push it until it breaks.”

There’s Roger Jimenez, who said the worst thing about the massacre was that the shooter “didn’t finish the job.” He also longed for the government to round up all the gay people, “put them up against a firing wall, put a firing squad in front of them, and blow their brains out.”

There’s Tommy McMurtry, who wishes we could go back to the time when society put gay people in their place: “six feet under.”

McMurtry also told his congregation that he hoped people would protest the MASA conference because it might get violent, and that could be a pretense for attendees to hurt or murder gay people.

… Pray that if they do any protests, that it gets violent. They have “Stand Your Ground” in Florida. So we’re allowed to fight back. So… I say “bring it!”

There’s Bruce Mejia, who says LGBTQ stands for “Let God Burn Them Quickly” and who thinks just preaching against gay people isn’t enough.

… we believe they should be put to death. They should die! And I will never grieve over a sodomite that is killed or that is put to death or any other way that they die, I will never grieve for that. In fact, I will rejoice over that.

Any wonder why I don’t by the “god is love” bullshit these people spew?   But when they are done going after the LGBTQ they will come for any others who don’t follow their version of religion and being holy god butt kissers.   This crap is pure hate speech and incitement to violence.   But the Republicans wont pass any anti-discrimination laws that protect LGBTQ+.   Guess they agree with these guys.   Hugs

Christians pushing their religion in schools on your children and making taxpayers pay if they are sued

Alabama’s Bible-in-School Bill Would Break the Law Before Classes Even Begin

Alabama’s Bible-in-School Bill Would Break the Law Before Classes Even Begin

Like several other Republican-dominated states using the Project Blitz playbook, Alabama is on the verge of passing a “Bible literacy” bill.

American Atheists puts that in English:

… SB 14 encourages teachers to discuss the Bible as a source of morality and public policy. It also allows schools to display “religious materials” like crosses during certain classes. Under SB 14, parents can’t sue the school districts if teachers try to indoctrinate children, a provision that blatantly violates parents’ and students’ First Amendment rights.

“Just like Alabama’s abortion ban, this ‘Bible class’ bill is a clear challenge to constitutional precedent,” said Alison Gill, American Atheists’ Vice President for Legal and Policy. “This bill is so extreme it even encourages school districts and teachers to break the law and proselytize, since it claims to shield them from legal responsibility.”

In theory, there’s nothing in this bill preventing a teacher from putting Christian crosses all over the classroom the way you might see the letters of the alphabet in a grade school.

That last statement is huge, too. The bill calls for neutrality, but if teachers break that rule and proselytize, the school district will never have to pay a price for it. If there’s a lawsuit that results in a payout for the plaintiffs, the bill says it’ll be covered by state taxpayers.

If you’re a school district, then, what’s stopping you from finding a pastor with teaching credentials to run the classes no differently from Sunday school? You literally have nothing to lose.

Some stories that caught my attention this morning.

TN Christian Prosecutor: Gay People Don’t Deserve Domestic Violence Protections

Again a religious ideologue who pushed his way into political position to force his religious views on everyone.   He doesn’t care about the law, only his religion.   He doesn’t see the hypocrisy of claiming those his religion disagrees with as “special rights” while demanding special rights for his religion.   I am not a hateful person, I am not an angry person, but after 50 years of this same fight I struggle not to react with anger and hate with these people.  Hugs

TN Christian Prosecutor: Gay People Don’t Deserve Domestic Violence Protections

According to a sermon he gave at the 2018 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference — but which is only getting attention now — Northcott was explaining the difficulties he faced as a result of the marriage equality decision by the Supreme Court. One of them was the decision of whether to prosecute a case of assault as “domestic violence” — a charge that carries a greater possible punishment — when the couple in question was in a same-sex marriage.

… the social engineers on the Supreme Court decided that we now have homosexual marriage. I disagree with them. What do I do with domestic assaults?… The reason that there’s [enhanced] punishment on domestic [violence] is to recognize and protect the sanctity of marriage. And I said there’s no marriage to protect. So I don’t prosecute them as domestics.

He told the crowd that decisions like this were precisely why they should always “elect a good Christian DA.” It’s hard to make sense of that since his theology overrides the law. That means he has no business being in a position where his job is to prosecute people who break the rules. The law means nothing if you think your religion gives you permission to break the rules — or, in this case, not apply them.

How can you dismiss the Supreme Court as activist judges when you yourself refuse to follow the law because you just don’t feel like it?

 

Alabama Mayor Defends Rant About the Need to “Kill” LGBTQ People and Liberals

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Fascism, Gender, Hate, Health, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 06:20

It is not enough for them to define us out of existence, they want us dead.   They do not see LGBTQ as people, as humans.  Just as white supremacists don’t think people of other skin tones are humans either.  We are the other.  Once you do that then it is OK to kill the non-human other.  To own them, to deny them rights, to mistreat them.  This is religion at its finest .  

Alabama Mayor Defends Rant About the Need to “Kill” LGBTQ People and Liberals

Mark Chambers, the mayor of Carbon Hill, Alabama, said in a Facebook post that the only solution to stopping certain groups — including LGBTQ people, those who are pro-choice, and Socialists — from getting “more rights than the majority” would be “to kill the problem out. I know it’s bad to say but without killing them out there’s no way to fix it.”

Notice in the article that his fear is minorities getting more rights than the majority. The reality is that LGBTQ people and others just want equal treatment. But neutrality is blasphemy to people like Chambers.

The best thing about the segment is hearing Chambers say someone else made the comments, only to have reporter Brittany Dionne tell him they’re on the same Facebook page that includes pictures of his family.

Only in Alabama can a mayor threaten to kill LGBTQ people and it’s still not the worst thing elected officials have done in the past month.
