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.

“A rash of new laws issued in Saudi Arabia aim to blot out all political dissent — and in one case defines atheists as terrorists. The series of laws began in January of 2014. At the end of last month, Human Rights Watch issued a report explaining that “a series of related royal decrees create a legal framework that appears to criminalize virtually all dissident thought or expression as terrorism.”

Malaysia invites witch doctors help ‘locate’ the missing Malaysia Airlines jet,
The prime minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak, has been labelled brainless for allowing a witch doctor to help in the hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
Ibrahim Mat Zin, a famous “bomoh” (witch doctor), performed a prayer at Kuala Lumpur International Airport with coconuts and a “magic stick” to trace the missing aircraft.
Zin, also known as the Raja Bomoh Sedunia Nujum VIP, who plans to return to the airport to perform another prayer, told Free Malaysia Today: “I think the plane is still in the air or has crashed into the sea.”
One user of Weibo (the Chinese social media service) wrote: “I feel so ashamed as a Malaysian for the first time, not because of any wrongdoing on Malaysia’s part but for having a brainless prime minister.
“Instead of hiring a witch doctor holding two coconuts to be ridiculed, would be better off to do something down-to-earth.

Religion AKA mental illness in progress
Part one in a series examining some of the most ridiculous claims. In this part, we look at a channel claiming that aircraft are holographic “sky demons” signifying “end times”, and discuss how easy it is to be an end times fraud.

Insane madness in progress, captain/all involved need to get mental evaluation
A police captain in Indiana has said he believes the story of a woman who claimed her children were being attacked and possessed by hundreds of demons.
Latoya Ammons, who is a mother of three, told authorities that demonic spirits caused her 9-year-old son to walk backwards on a hospital ceiling and her 12-year-old daughter to levitate above her bed.
The unbelievable story, which emerged in the Indianapolis Star newspaper, and is detailed in social work reports, was supported by Gary Police Captain Charles Austin.
Captain Austin, a police officer with 36-years experience, initially said he was sceptical about the family’s claims but that he had been convinced after visiting the home and conducting interviews with the family.
The bizarre and unlikely tale began when Ms Ammons, her mother, Rosa Campbell, and three children – moved into a rental house on Carolina Street in November 2011. Ammons reported a plague of flies swarming onto the window of the porch despite it being the middle of winter.
She also reported regularly hearing things going bump in the night, along with the sound of footsteps and doors creaking and shadowy figures pacing in her living room.

He deserves much worse than this…that sick bastard! Hello
A Saudi self-styled preacher has been sentenced to eight years in prison and 600 lashes for raping and torturing to death his 5-year-old daughter, according to reports.
Fayhan al-Ghamdi, who is not recognised as a cleric by the Saudi religious circle, was also ordered to pay his ex-wife one million riyals (£168,000) in “blood money”, according to lawyer Turki al-Rasheed.
Lama al-Ghamdi was admitted to hospital in December 2011 with multiple injuries, including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive burns, and fingernails torn off.
She had been beaten with a cane and electric cables and died 10 months later. According to some reports, al-Ghamdi had suspected his daughter lose her virginity and had tortured her in response.
Randa al-Kaleeb, a social worker from the hospital where Lama was admitted, said the girl’s back was broken and that she had been raped “everywhere”.
Ghamdi was a regular guest on Muslim television networks and eventually confessed to having inflicted the girls the fatal injuries.
