The "guilt trip" kids are on these days about nudity (seems nobody showers after gym class these days), "safe sex" (using birth control is a sin) and any discussion of human sexuality (protests over sex ed) is part of a perverse scheme to keep victims from exposing their abusers because they were participating and that makes them vile and disgusting.

 

Is this another problem that exists only in America because of the political power of fundamentalists, some of whom are seriously "bent"?


If kids are not showering after gym it may be because of the idiotic "any gender" approach to shower rooms that the left gave us.

 

Or do you have something else that you can blame on Catholics, Evangelicals, or President Trump - or maybe the Reagan tax cuts?

Southern Baptist Convention report on sex abuse shines a light on Evangelical Culture

 

We need to take a long look at the theological and structural conditions that enable abuse — starting with purity teachings that shame survivors.

 

Sexual abuse was never just a Catholic problem. But unlike the Catholic structure, evangelical churches like the one I grew up in and have spent the past 13 years researching are largely self-governing.

 

This means we’ve mostly lacked the kind of bureaucratic record that might prove systemic abuse the way it’s been documented in Catholic dioceses.

Now, a report on a major evangelical denomination is changing all that.

 

A joint investigation by two Texas papers, the Houston Chronicle and the San Antonio Express-News, resulted in a three-part report revealing that over 200 Southern Baptist pastors, youth pastors and deacons were convicted or took plea deals for sex crimes over the past 20 years — leaving behind over 700 survivors. When the vast majority of rapes in the United States never lead to a felony conviction, these numbers suggest an astronomical level of violence.

 

SO LET ME SEE IF I'VE GOT THIS STRAIGHT

 

IF IT'S A FACT THAT - GOD WANTS TRUMP TO BE PRESIDENT

 

IT MUST ALSO BE TRUE THAT - GOD ALLOWS A MAJORITY OF THE LEADERSHIP IN EVERY ORGANIZED RELIGION TO OPERATE SEXUAL ABUSE RINGS - INSIDE THEIR ORGANIZED RELIGIONS

As usual, that's confusing (but colorful) - how did President Trump get involved???

Religion was invented when the first con-man met the first fool.

 

Religion is a man-made scam - one that god has never considered participating in...
