Cardinal George Pell offered bribe to child sex abuse victim, inquiry told

Posted by doctore0 on May 20, 2015


pedophile2A senior Vatican official, who is also Australia’s highest ranking cleric, has been accused of attempting to bribe a victim of child sex abuse to keep quiet about the molestation he suffered from a paedophile Catholic priest.

The victim, David Ridsdale, told an Australian royal commission into child sexual abuse that he called Cardinal George Pell in 1993 to report being abused by his uncle Gerald Ridsdale, a former priest who is in prison after committing more than 130 offences against children as young as four between the 1960s and 1980s.

David Ridsdale said Pell had a “terse” response to being told of the abuse, before offering him money to buy his silence.

“George then began to talk about my growing family and my need to take care of their needs,” Ridsdale told the royal commission hearing. “He mentioned how I would soon have to buy a car or house for my family.

“I remember with clarity the last three lines we spoke together. Me: Excuse me, George, what the fuck are you talking about? George: I want to know what it will take to keep you quiet. Me: Fuck you, George, and everything you stand for.”

Ridsdale, now 48, said he called his sister after the conversation with Pell and told her “the bastard tried to bribe me”.

Michigan pastor who railed against same-sex marriage resigns after being caught seeking men on Grindr

Posted by doctore0 on May 20, 2015

I am pretty sure these religious nutters wet dream is being pumped by Jesus/God for all eternity whilst the women cook and clean hevn :)

In light of revelations that he solicited companionship with men on Grindr, the popular hookup app, Reverend Matthew Makela has resigned as pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church and School in Midland, Michigan, Pink News Reports.

St. John’s website has removed Makela’s biography from its staff page, but it has added a letter from senior pastor Reverend Daniel Kempin to parishioners, alerting them to the preacher’s departure, and urging them to be wary of reporters.

“Pastor has acknowledged that there was sin and repentance,” Kempin reassures his flock. Kempin concedes it’s the “end of our time together in ministry,” but that he encourages churchgoers to pray for Makela and his family.

Makela’s resignation is difficult enough, Kempin continues, but “to make matters worse, though, the details of sin that have been kept confidential are being posted online by those who seek to do harm to the Makela family and to St. John’s.”

“I write this to you to warn you that you may be confronted with the details of the sin,” Kempin cautions parishioners.

Britons no longer consider turning to God in death

Posted by doctore0 on May 18, 2015

Why turn to god(s), it’s all made up shit; some idiotic/scam fantasy pacifier.

The extent of decline of religious faith is exposed in new research suggesting that British people no longer turn to God even in the face of death.

Research into attitudes about death and dying found that having spiritual needs catered for is now considered the least important priority for those facing the end of life.

When asked to choose what would be the most important factor in ensuring they had a “good death”, from a list of options, only five per cent selected having their religious or spiritual needs met.

By contrast 33 per cent said they would like to be “pain free” and 17 per cent said it was most important to have their friends and family with them. One in seven singled out retaining their dignity as most important.

Strikingly, 60 per cent of those surveyed ranked religious or spiritual needs last of the six options they were given.

The findings emerge from research carried out by “Dying Matters”, a coalition of 16,000 hospices, charities, care homes and others working with people facing their end of life.

Bogus faith healers fishing for victims in Leicester, police warn

Posted by doctore0 on May 18, 2015

Ehrrm all faith healers are bogus :)

Police have issued a new warning about bogus faith healers who trick people into handing over cash for ‘cures’ for everything from cancer to financial trouble.

Officers spoke out after recovering a number of advertising leaflets in the Belgrave area of Leicester in the past couple of weeks.

They also confirmed two suspects are currently under investigation for allegedly conning people out of money.

The force has previously spoken out against ‘healers’ who claim to be able to use prayer to lift curses, heal broken marriages and solve financial problems.

Others who have targeted the city have said they could cure illnesses including cancer and HIV.

Inspector Ben Gillard, commander of Leicester’s Spinney Hill Park police station, said his officers had been alerted to a new batch of leaflets which have been delivered to homes or left on car windscreens in recent weeks.

Insp Gillard said: “This is still very much a live issue because people are still being subjected to these leaflets being put through their front doors or left on their cars.

“The danger is vulnerable people will turn to these people for help.

“They are predators and they will promise anything as long as it makes them money.

“The people who do this know that if they knock on 100 doors they will find someone who will believe in them and give them money.

An atheist just won the right to sue N.J. over a rejected vanity license plate

Posted by doctore0 on May 15, 2015


atheistlicenceplateAn atheist in New Jersey has won the right to sue after she was allegedly denied a request for a vanity license plate that read “8THEIST.”

According to Nj.com, this week U.S. District Court Freda Wolfson judge struck down an attempt by the state of New Jersey to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Shannon Morgan, a resident of Leesburg. Morgan, who identifies as atheist, claims she visited the state Motor Vehicle Commission’s (MVC) website in November 2013 and entered “8THEIST” as her preferred title for a vanity plate. Her submission was rebuffed, however, with the website telling her that the “requested plate is considered objectionable.” When Morgan tried “BAPTIST” as another option, she was reportedly allowed to proceed through the registration process.

Morgan eventually filed a lawsuit in April of last year, accusing the commission of violating her free speech. Officials, in turn, insisted her case was invalid because the rejection was the result of a “computer error,” not intentional discrimination, noting they eventually allowed her to have the license plate anyway. But Morgan’s lawyers say the issue is bigger than one license plate, and pointed out that the commission’s rules — specifically a policy that allows the MVC to decline plates they deem “offensive to good taste and decency” — are still in place, which they say grants the government “unbridled discretion to prohibit speech based on the speaker’s viewpoint.”
