Warrens Jeffs Threatens Court

Texas: A Texas judge warned Warren Jeffs against calling "for the jury's destruction" shortly after the polygamous sect leader said Friday during his sexual assault trial that those who prosecuted his church would face "sickness and death."

The comments that precipitated the warning to Jeffs, who has been granted the right to represent himself, occurred around midday after Judge Barbara Walther had sent the jury out of the San Angelo courtroom.

"I, the Lord God of heaven, ask the courts to cease the prosecution of my holy ways," Jeffs said. "There will be a judgment against all those who prosecute the church. ... I shall let all people know of your unjust ways. I will bring sickness and death. Let this cease."

Walther then told him that "if you call for the jury's destruction" while the jury -- who will decide if Jeffs is guilty on two counts of sexual assault on a child -- is present, "you will be removed from the courtroom." The defendant responded by saying, "I am not threatening. I am releasing a message."

Man Guns Down His Daughters

Pakistan: On Tuesday morning, Arif Mubashir called his teenage daughters to his room and shot them while the rest of the family, including their mother, watched. His wife Musarrat called the police after the incident.

Mubashir shot the girls after their brother said two of them were in a relationship. He told police officials that he had killed his daughters because they were both “without honour”. The man said his daughters Sameena, 14, and Razia, 16, were in a relationship with college boys from the neighbourhood and the sisters had helped each other.

Police officials have taken Mubashir into custody and filed a case against him. “He does not regret what he did. He boasted that he would do it all over again if he had to.”

No Sports, Whatsoever At All

Mom Charged In Daughters Death

New Jersey: Venette Ovilde pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated manslaughter and child endangerment in the death of her daughter.

The 29-year-old Irvington woman is accused of neglecting her daughter so badly that the girl died last month of an untreated broken femur and malnourishment. Ovilde’s roommate, 24-year-old Myriam Janvier, pleaded not guilty to endangerment.

Christiana was found dead inside of the family’s Chancellor Avenue apartment on May 22. Ovilde’s 6-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter had been suffering from injuries and severe malnourishment when police took them from the home last month.

Ovilde was a member of the "Walking With Christ" religious sect. The pastor, Emanyel Rezireksyon Kris, ordered his followers to fast extensively, to cut contact with their families and told them not to attend school or hold a job. The fasting rules were so extreme that Rezireksyon Kris told members of his congregation not to swallow their own saliva.

Rick Warren Hates Poor People

When conservative preacher Rick Warren raked in $2.4 million last December for his Saddleback Church (an archipelago of high-tech churches, gymnasium courts, restaurants and even a music school sitting on nine campuses of prime California real estate), he didn’t pay a penny of tax on that income. Saddleback Church is tax-exempt despite its wealth.

When Rick Warren found out that half of Americans now are so poor that their income doesn’t meet the minimum threshold for income tax, he vented his all-caps rage on Twitter. His rage wasn’t directed at the misfortune of poverty. No, preacher Warren directed his ire at those nervy jobless poor people who don’t pay income taxes.

Norwegian police say the 32 year-old who gunned down at least 84 youths attending a camp is a right-wing Christian.

Norwegian police say they are questioning Anders Behring Breivik who is believed to be a fundamentalist Christian after he killed at least 84 people at a youth camp on Utoeya island in Norway.

The 32 year-old is also thought to have been behind a blast that shook Oslo two hours before the attack on the island north of the Norwegian capital.

Arrested For Exposing Corruption

No religious douchebaggery here but outrageous enough to warrant a post anyway, in my divinely inspired opinion.

Jennifer Jones addressed the city council of Quartzsite, Arizona. She was formally recognized and began to expose the misdeeds of the city councilman, what unfolded in the video was nothing short of a mutiny. The police officers disregarded the rule of law, ignored the orders of the Mayor and took her into custody.

Update: Now the town of Quartzsite has placed more than half of it's police department on leave after they accused the police chief of misconduct and abuse of power.

Just Say No

Texas Governor Rick Perry has taken an increasingly antiscience turn in his approach to governing. On global warming he now says that the leading source of "supposedly deadly carbon dioxide" is the mouth of Al Gore. On education he has appointed creationists to lead the Texas State Board of Education. And on the issue of sex ed in Texas, Perry has taken governing positions that affect millions of children based on his own personal opinions, even when those opinions are overwhelmingly contradicted by the evidence.

Texas lawmakers cut sex ed from two six-month courses to a single unit of "abstinence only" education. Early indications showed that the program wasn't working. In fact, by 2007, Texas had the highest teen birth rate in the nation.

Read More: abstinence only

The results? Teen pregnancy in Texas went up, higher than before "abstinence only," and more than 50 percent higher than the national average.

Pastor Accused Of Stealing Katrina Relief Funds

Louisiana: A state audit released today claims the pastor of a Central City church known for its drug addiction programs misspent or wasted at least $160,000 in relief grants after Hurricane Katrina.

In addition, the State Inspector General's audit also said that Elder John Pierre of Living Witness Church Of God In Christ converted to personal use nearly $74,000 in rebuilding grants. The report recommended that the state begin efforts to recapture the money and consider whether to open a criminal prosecution.

Examination of church bank accounts found that in 2008 and 2009 Pierre issued himself 11 checks totalling $32,810, "including a $20,000 check ... classified as an anniversary gift." He also paid himself $41,000 in regular housing allowances, the report said.

God Bless Rick Perry's Texas

God’s messengers visited Rick Perry. Tom Schlueter of Arlington and Bob Long of San Marcos both oversee small congregations, but they are more than just pastors. They consider themselves modern-day prophets.

The pastors told Perry of God’s grand plan for Texas. A chain of powerful prophecies had proclaimed that Texas was “The Prophet State,” anointed by God to lead the United States into revival and Godly government. And the governor would have a special role.

Schlueter, Long and other prayer warriors are part of a little-known but increasingly influential movement called the New Apostolic Reformation. Believers fashion themselves modern-day prophets and apostles. They have taken Pentecostalism, with its emphasis on ecstatic worship and the supernatural, and given it an adrenaline shot.

If they simply professed unusual beliefs, movement leaders wouldn’t be remarkable. But what makes the New Apostolic Reformation movement so potent is its growing fascination with infiltrating politics and government. The new prophets and apostles believe Christians—certain Christians—are destined to take “dominion” over government.

Perry has given self-proclaimed prophets and apostles leading roles in The Response, a much-publicized Christians-only prayer rally that Perry is organizing at Houston’s Reliant Stadium on Aug. 6.

Eight members of The Response “leadership team” are affiliated with the New Apostolic Reformation movement. They’re employed or associated with groups like TheCall or the International House of Prayer (IHOP), Kansas City-based organizations at the forefront of the movement. The long list of The Response’s official endorsers—posted on the event’s website—reads like a Who’s Who of the apostolic-prophetic crowd, including movement founder C. Peter Wagner.

Couple Kicked Out Of Public Pool

Kentucky: Earlier this week, a disabled gay couple were kicked out of a public pool in Hazard, Kentucky. A staff member at the Hazard Pavilion recreation center told the two men and their aids that they needed to leave because “‘gay people’ weren’t allowed to swim there.” And why not? Apparently, because “it’s in the Bible.”

The two men, who are developmentally and intellectually disabled, arrived at the pool accompanied by staff from Mending Hearts Inc. The organization provides support for people with certain disabilities and helps guide their behavior in public.

Shirlyn Perkins, Mending Hearts’ Executive Director, told the Kentucky Equality Federation that “Pavilion staff immediately entered the pool area and asked my clients and their staff to leave the Pavilion.”

“My staff asked The Pavilion staff why they were being asked to leave, and they were informed that ‘gay people’ weren’t allowed to swim there. [They] told this man that what he was trying to do was discrimination,” Perkins continued. “The man stated that what he was doing was in the Bible and he could do it. My staff continued to argue with this man, but was ultimately forced to leave.”

Waiting For The End

As GOP presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) surges in the polls, more information is coming to light about her past that reveal the depths of her political and religious extremism.

Here's an audio recording of Bachmann praying for the notoriously anti-gay ministry You Can Run But You Can't Hide, run by the radical preacher Bradlee Dean. Bachmann offered the prayer in 2006. In it, Bachmann predicts, “We are in the last days,” and says, “The harvest is at hand” — a Biblical allusion to the Rapture when some believe God will take saved Christians from the earth and leave the non-believers to face several years of torment and tribulation before the second coming of Christ.

Do we really want someone in the White House who sees no need to plan for the future?

Youth Pastor Guilty Of Sexual Assault

Colorado: A former Colorado Springs youth pastor accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl faces up to 90 days in jail and at least 10 years’ probation under a recent plea agreement with prosecutors.

Joshua Amoroso, 22, agreed June 30 to plead guilty to one count of sexual assault on a child, a felony.

In exchange, prosecutors agreed to dismiss 17 additional counts related to Amoroso’s three-month relationship with the girl, whom he met while counseling children at Gateway Church in Colorado Springs.

Amoroso was fired after acknowledging the affair, church officials said.

Church Volunteer Guilty Of Sexual Assault

Colorado: A former Springs Community Church youth group volunteer faces two years to life in prison after pleading guilty Monday to having a three-year sexual relationship with his family’s teenage baby sitter, a prosecutor said.

Eric Vincent Caverly, 37, admitted in court that he first seduced the girl in 2007, when she was 15 years old.

Caverly, who is free on a $25,000 bond, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss five additional counts under a plea agreement.

Caverly helped lead at least one church session that counseled youths on the dangers of pornography. He was recommended as a resource on sexual addiction, according to a program that was removed from the church website.

Prison Chaplain Paid Inmates For Sex

New York: A Queens chaplain was nabbed trying to pay an inmate for a most unholy act.

Frank DeTucci, 70, had $200 in his shoe and another $153 in his wallet when a guard at the Queensboro Correctional Facility spotted him kneeling Sunday in front of the prisoner, officials say.

When questioned, DeTucci admitted that on July 5 he paid the same inmate $120 and $150 on two separate occasions to perform oral sex on him in the chaplain's office.
DeTucci has been a chaplain for the state correctional system for 27 years and is a deacon at Our Lady of Mount Carmel church in Astoria. A church spokeswoman said he would be placed on administrative leave as soon as notified.
