Perfect Double Standard

Posted by Mr DoctorE on April 14, 2014

We are often told of the Abrahamic God’s perfect moral standard, but this is a standard God Himself does not follow, a double standard, as clearly evidenced in the bible. So, if God is not subject to His own standard of perfect goodness, how can He possibly be defined as perfectly good?

French priest charged with rape, torture during exorcisms

Posted by Mr DoctorE on April 10, 2014


Versailles, France: A priest in an ultra-conservative Catholic sect has been charged with rape and torture for acts allegedly committed during exorcisms involving three schoolteachers.

Versailles prosecutor Vincent Lesclous told AFP the 40-year-old priest with the Society of Saint Pius X, whose identity has not been released to protect the victims, was charged on Wednesday and is being held without bail.

He is facing charges of aggravated rape, torture and “committing barbarous acts” for the alleged assaults on three teachers at a private religious school in the western suburbs of Paris.

The prosecutor refused to provide further details, but newspaper Le Parisien reported on Thursday that the assaults took place in the autumn of 2010 at the Notre-Dame de la Sablonniere school run by the sect.

It alleged he had first raped one teacher during an exorcism to purge her of the “evil” from a previous sexual assault.

He then used his “spiritual influence” to convince two other female teachers to undergo similar exorcisms, Le Parisien said.

Kids in religious community shocked with cattle prod

Posted by Mr DoctorE on April 9, 2014

Christian “love” in progress…

A female member of an Old Order Mennonite community, which can’t be identified, pleaded guilty to assault charges last month. The Crown says adults strapped, kicked and shocked children with a cattle prod.

Incidents of horrific physical abuse of children in a rural Manitoba community were revealed in a Winnipeg courtroom late last month.

During the case of an Old Order Mennonite community member — a woman who pleaded guilty to abuse charges — the Crown said “counselling sessions” were held in which children were spanked, kicked, strapped and shocked with a cattle prod for perceived wrongdoing.

One girl was strapped and shocked for not eating quickly enough, and sometimes shocked for as little as the look on her face, court was told.

“The backdrop of it is actually tremendous physical violence with respect to the children,” Crown attorney Adam Bergen said in late March, when the woman from the religious community entered guilty pleas to assault charges.

Neither she nor her community can be identified due to ongoing court proceedings and a publication ban.

An estimated 80 to 90 people — more than half of them children — lived in the community when allegations of abuse came to light. The community still used horse and buggies and abided by traditions dating back to the 19th century.
‘The backdrop of it is actually tremendous physical violence with respect to the children’

About 16 adults were charged with offences such as assault and assault with a weapon. Most were allegedly committed on a number of children from July 2011 to January 2013.

At one point, there were at least 13 victims.

There might have been more, court documents allege.

The 57-year-old woman who pleaded guilty admitted to two counts of assault with a weapon against two girls who were placed in her home after they were removed from their own.

At the time, one girl was 10 or 11 years old, and the other was between six and eight years old.

The woman’s sentencing will be at a later date.

Bergen said the trouble within the community surrounded allegations of sexual improprieties among the parents and children of two families.
