The Daily Show used to do a feature called “This Week in God” so I thought I might try to do something similar. Can’t promise it will cover a full week or that it will be a regular thing, as I don’t like to spend too much time around delusional, disgusting people.
First up, the old stand by, the eternally corrupt Catholic Church:
Fresh Air interviewed Rachel Swarns: “You don’t hear about enslaved people at Mass or in Sunday school,” says author Rachel Swarns. Her new book tells the story of 272 enslaved people sold in 1838 to help save what is now Georgetown University.
Chick-fil-A is way worse than we thought (says the Christian Post):
Chick-fil-A is the latest company in the crosshairs of furious conservatives calling for a boycott of popular companies like Budweiser and Target. However, what makes their allegiance to this network of disingenuous evildoers masquerading as do-gooders is their betrayal of their loyal patrons.
Chick-fil-A is a family-owned company, so they’re not beholden to the ESG standards of publicly traded companies. They cannot pretend they were forced into this agenda. Their largest consumer base has always been the Christian community. Yet, they have been trying to appease the left for over a decade and have now caved to the pressure to fit in. It reminds me of the biblical account of Lot, who, when faced with an angry mob that wanted to rape his angelic visitors, offered his daughters instead. The fear of the angry mob can make human beings do dreadful things.
So Chick-fil-A is not only woke, they have chosen the side of evil over the Christian community on whom they built their fortune. It’s much worse than we thought. They have joined the soulless tycoons who sacrifice our children to this demonic agenda, warping their sense of self-identity in exchange for a lie. It is time that Christians call them out for their hypocrisy and remind them:
“Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14).
It all began May 16. That was the day we launched a massive email campaign asking our followers to contact Rob Manfred, the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, protesting the decision by the Los Angeles Dodgers to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence on “Pride Night” June 16.
The very next day, the Dodgers pivoted and disinvited the bigots. Then they pivoted again, reinviting them.
Over the past five weeks we have been relentless in our quest for a boycott of the June 16 game. We disseminated a report I wrote on the anti-Catholic antics of the “Sisters” wide and far, including a mailing to over 300 parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
A former pastor and founder of a ministry to help individuals dealing with substance use problems has been arrested for sex crimes against children.
Stanly County Sheriff’s Office said it received a report May 30 of sexual assault involving a juvenile.
Following an investigation, detectives charged Lawrence “Larry” Francis Wilkins, 44, with four counts of felony indecent liberties with a child and four counts of misdemeanor sexual battery.
A New Castle man accused of child sex trafficking and corrupting children in Ohio has been found guilty by a jury in Mahoning County Court.
The Ohio jury’s verdict was delivered Wednesday against 35-year-old Jarod Mills of West Terrace Avenue of unlawful attempted sexual contact with a minor.
Mill was arrested in Mahoning County in May 2021 in a sex sting operation by the Operation for Child Trafficking and Sex With Children. His bond has been revoked and he’s remains in the Mahoning County jail, awaiting sentencing.
He was a pastor at the Clifton Flats Church at the time.
The number of people who died after a Kenyan pastor ordered his followers to starve to death in order to meet Jesus has surpassed 300, authorities said Tuesday, and the death toll is expected to rise as more exhumations are planned.
The death toll increased to 303 after 19 more bodies were recovered from mass graves in the vast forested land in Kilifi County of coastal Kenya, where pastor Paul Mackenzie and his followers lived.
Coastal regional commissioner Rhoda Onyancha told local journalists that 613 people tied to the area are missing.
On Monday, 65 of the 95 parishioners whom authorities said they rescued from the property were charged with attempting suicide after they staged a hunger strike to protest being held at a shelter. They were moved to a jail.
Police went to MacKenzie’s property in April after investigators received a tip that dozens of people were starving to death after their pastor told them it was a way to meet Jesus. The emaciated followers were treated at a Malindi hospital before they were taken to the shelter.
A former Flint-area Catholic priest convicted of the attempted sexual abuse of a 5-year-old boy in the late 1980s, was sentenced Tuesday to a year in jail and probation.
Vincent DeLorenzo, 84, was sentenced June 13 by Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Brian S. Pickell after previously pleading guilty to a single count of attempted first-degree criminal sexual conduct, a five-year felony.
The sentence followed the framework of the plea, which called for five years probation and one year incarceration at the Genesee County Jail.
A 71-year-old man, who served on the governing board of a Christian & Missionary Alliance church in Alaska linked to the Chi Alpha sex abuse scandal, has been charged with 17 counts of child sex abuse.
Alaska State Troopers on June 6 arrested Dwight “Chris” John, 71, on Prince of Wales Island and then remanded him to Ketchikan Correctional Center, located 55 miles away. Police charged John with six counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree, seven counts of sexual abuse of a minor second degree, one count of sexual abuse of a minor three degree, and three related Class C felony charges.
The church where John served, Clover Pass Community Church in Ketchikan, is the same church where Daniel Savala ministered as an itinerant youth leader from 1995 to 1997 and abused multiple children. Savala was convicted of child sex abuse in 2012.
Despite this past, Savala went on to serve as a mentor and teacher for several Texas chapters of Chi Alpha Campus Ministries. There, he allegedly abused numerous college students over many years, raising questions about Clover Pass’s handling of Savala’s past crimes.
