In the repellent and ribald realms of the Pennsylvania Parishes,the practice of trials by religious tribunes needs a rebirth. More commonly named the ‘Inquisition’, this delightful method of extracting penance from the  wayward faithful was discontinued in the early 19th century.

The punishment portion was burning at the stake; undoubtedly now forbidden by EPA clean air regulations. Truly a shame since the instructional qualities for the masses is the sine qua non of “getting one’s point across” or as the French would put it, pour encourage les autres. Properly, since it was in Spain, it would be para animan los demás.

To make sure we are using these terms properly, two links are here: Auto dà Fé and Inquisition.

301 ‘Predator Priests’ Named In Pa. Grand Jury Sex Abuse Report: ‘They Were Raping Little Boys & Girls’

The long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released.

The 884-page document, two years in the making, shines a light into the dark corners of these dioceses going back seven decades, exposing the predators and the efforts of their bishops to protect them.

“Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”[snip]

The report cites 301 priests, clergy and lay teachers with credible allegations against them. There are 99 in the Diocese of Pittsburgh alone. [snip]

The report states:

“All victims were brushed aside, in every part of the state, by church leaders who preferred to protect the abusers and their institution above all. The main thing was not to help children, but to avoid scandal.”

“Priests were raping little boys and girls and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing: they hid it all.”

“Diocesan administrators, including the Bishops, had knowledge of this conduct and yet priests were regularly placed in ministry after the Diocese was on notice that a complaint of child sexual abuse had been made. This conduct enabled offenders and endangered the welfare of children.”

All this makes one lose any faith/belief in organized religion no matter which faith. Here in South Carolina, we have has Baptist ministers who wouldn’t ‘John Barleycorn’ but were busy diddling some chippie other than their spouse.
In the Catholic faith, Biff and Buffy were getting drilled some ordained pervert. What the nuns were doing, who knows. Procuring? Running a brothel for the clergy? Some probably did.

Anyone have a spare stake? I have matches and lighter fluid.

A short but humorous assemblage of stupidity in the news.

Here’s the ‘Chicago Way’ of quickly settling a minor disagreement.

Man Fatally Shot By Neighbor After Alleged Dog Pee Argument, Witnesses Say

As Chicago Police add more officers to communities, many residents in crime-ridden communities are afraid the crime isn’t going to stop.

One of the victims of gun violence this past weekend died, allegedly, over something as small as a dog relieving itself on someone else’s property.

Police say the fatal shooting happened in the 7700 block of South Shore on August 3 around 8:45 p.m. The victim was struck in the left arm and chest and pronounced dead on the scene. [snip]

Man breaks legs jumping border wall in California

A man attempting to enter the United States illegally has fallen from a new 30-foot high wall in California, breaking both his legs.
Border Patrol surveillance video shows the man lying motionless on the ground after tossing his body over the bollard-style barrier Sunday night in downtown Calexico, east of San Diego.

Paramedics determined that the man broke his legs and may have injured his back. He was taken to a hospital in Palm Springs.

The Border Patrol didn’t identify the man. Spokesman Carlos Pitones says the U.S. government typically pays medical expenses for people who are injured crossing the border illegally and they are deported after recovery.

Once more the taxpayers front the money for an illegal who ignores the laws of gravity.

This should have a strong deterrent on other miscreants.

Saudi Arabia Carries Out Rare Crucifixion for Murder, Theft

Saudi Arabia executed and crucified a Myanmar man in the holy city of Mecca on Wednesday in a rare form of punishment reserved for the most egregious crimes.

Elias Abulkalaam Jamaleddeen was accused of breaking into the home of a woman from Myanmar, firing a weapon in it then repeatedly stabbing her, which led to her death, the official Saudi Press Agency reported, citing an Interior Ministry statement. He was also accused of stealing weapons and trying to kill another man whose home he broke into, as well as attempting to rape a woman.

The ruling was supported by the country’s supreme court and endorsed by the king.

Crucifixions in Saudi Arabia entail hanging a body in public after an execution, and are unusual. A Yemeni man was crucified in 2010 for raping and killing a girl and shooting dead her father.

Perhaps we could use this method on drug smugglers, other illegals that commit atrocities here. Deporting them doesn’t seem to have any permanence.

Lawsuit alleges Seattle Mayor Ed Murray sexually abused troubled teen in 1980s

A new lawsuit accuses Seattle Mayor Ed Murray of child sexual abuse decades ago. Two other men have told The Seattle Times they, too, were abused by Murray as teenagers in the 1980s. The mayor vigorously denies all the accusations.

A 46-year-old Kent man sued Seattle Mayor Ed Murray on Thursday, claiming Murray “raped and molested him” over several years, beginning in 1986 when the man was a 15-year-old high-school dropout.

The lawsuit in King County Superior Court, filed under the man’s initials, “D.H.,” alleges Murray sexually abused the crack-cocaine addicted teen on numerous occasions for payments of $10 to $20.

This more than likely on the Liberal Plantation will fall under the chant of “The King is Dead; Long live the King” as the Progressive Pedophile lovers gather up their torts and knives and head to court.

America, at least in those areas governed by the Progressive elements of society, seem to be the most disgusting places to have in your town, neighborhood or even your state. The following stories are but a few of what goes on each day .

This Virginia Mayor Endorsed Hillary Clinton, Now He’s in Jail for Trying to Buy Sex with Meth

Fairfax City Mayor R. Scott Silverthorne, a supporter of Hillary Clinton, was arrested Thursday after allegedly giving methamphetamine to an undercover police officer in exchange for sex.

Silverthorne, who has been mayor of Fairfax since 2012, was announced as a member of “Mayors for Hillary” back in February of this year.

The city of Fairfax is located in Fairfax County, a suburb of Washington, D.C., and one of the richest counties in the country. The 50-year-old mayor was arrested at a hotel in nearby Tysons Corner.

According to Fairfax County police, they encountered Silverthorne after learning of an individual who was distributing meth through a website used to arrange male-on-male sexual encounters.

An undercover detective created a profile on the site and was contacted by Silverthorne, who said he could provide meth in exchange for sex. They arranged to meet at a hotel, where Silverthorne was arrested for felony distribution of methamphetamine.

Silverthorne is also reportedly a substitute teacher in the Fairfax County Public School system.

Now if this was posted by a liberal website, all sots of excuses would be made for this behavior. The greatest posit would be “It doesn’t make him a bad person.” In a PIG’s eye it doesn’t. Wait until it comes out he tried to diddle the little boys after gym.

Crackheads, bums and hookers rule Washington Square Park

Just three weeks before NYU’s newest class moves into the area, a group of junkies and crackheads has turned a leafy pathway in Washington Square Park into an open-air drug den — and the NYPD is doing nothing about it.

As many as 20 strung-out vagrants have taken over several benches in the park’s northwest corner, where they openly consume hard drugs just steps from the children’s playground, outraged neighbors said.

One Village resident who walks his dog through the park daily said he has repeatedly witnessed people blatantly smoking crack — and even saw one man use a handheld mirror to inject narcotics into a vein in his neck as two cops sat in a cruiser about 15 feet away.

“I dunno if they have a Twitter feed or what, but the word is out and the numbers get bigger by the day,” said the resident, a 33-year-old property manager.

“I’ve lived by the park seven years and I have never in my life seen someone shooting heroin in the middle of broad daylight, literally surrounded by pedestrians enjoying an afternoon outside.”

“The quality of people coming here and participating in that kind of activity aren’t the kind of people that a residential neighborhood needs. It’s not what you want to see,” said Falzon, 57.

Thursday afternoon, The Post spotted three people firing up a glass stem and puffing away on benches in the area.

Afterward, none would discuss what they had been doing.

About a half-dozen other apparent druggies were seen shuffling around like zombies and occasionally spewing curses at each other.

One man urinated on a tree.

A Parks Department worker admitted that he and his colleagues had quit cleaning up the area because they were scared of the addicts.

There’s drug use, prostitution, gambling — all that is going on there. All day and all night, too,” the worker said.

“In that area over there, though, it’s off the chain and the cops know what’s going on. I ain’t touching that situation. That’s on them.”

No cops were stationed inside the park Thursday, but at one point, two officers pulled up in a patrol car and parked at Washington Square North to eat ­salads in their vehicle.

Asked why they weren’t cracking down on the lawlessness within their sight, one cop said: “We aren’t even here for that specifically. There’s a unit that’s dealing with all of that. I can’t say more than that.”

They left about 10 minutes later.

An NYPD spokeswoman, Sgt. Jessica McRory, said: “The precinct has received complaints in regards to that area of the park. We currently have officers assigned to that area. [snip]

Another hotbed of Progressive law enforcement where the social contract is between the criminals and the NY City Administration rather than the citizenry. But De Blasio doesn’t believe in laws unless they are Politically Correct and aimed at the suppression of the white culture.

Pastor reported his own child sex crime, center says

GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – A center that provides services for sex assault and child abuse victims says a pastor reported his child sex crime to them.

James Brian Briley, 54, is charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor by the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say he inappropriately touched and molested the 12-year-old victim at his home on July 31.

Shauna Galloway Williams, executive director of the Julie Valentine Center, says that they received a call from James Brian Briley on Friday evening.

She says he reported that he had committed a crime.

She says in more than 10 years of working at the center, she has never had someone call themselves in.

The sheriff’s office says Briley was the campus pastor at Summit Church on Rutherford Road in Greenville. [snip]

One has to believe he picked up many techniques while working at the center.
