Horror Show Sunday: Light Your Daughter Up!

As long as we’re in that part of the world, let’s do another story about how awful Islam is, where a mother decided to light her daughter on fire in one of those wonderful “honor killings”.  Yeah, that ought to be fun.

Parveen Bibi of Pakistan beat her daughter when she married a man that her family did not approve of.  She, along with her son, then lit 18-year old Zeenat Rafiq on fire, killing her.  But it’s all for “honor”, you see.  Tell me another one.

A Pakistani court found Bibi guilty of the murder and sentenced her to death, while finding her son, Anees Rafique, guilty as an accessory to the murder and sentenced him to life in prison.

Hassan Khan, Zeenat’s husband, told reporters, “When she told her parents about us, they beat her so severely she was bleeding from her mouth and nose.”  A week after the marriage, her parents promised they wanted to reconcile and even though Zeenat was doubtful, she felt she had to go and give them a chance.  It was the last act she would ever take.  Authorities say they found signs of strangulation and beating on the body before Bibi poured kerosene on her and lit her on fire.

Of course, Bibi showed no signs of remorse for killing her daughter, something that was taken into account by the courts as they sentenced her to a very well deserved death.  Burning would be appropriate, don’t you think?

This kind of thing is absurdly common in the Muslim world and I’ve done many stories on it in the past. On average, 1000 women are murdered by their families in Pakistan every year in the name of “honor”. But it isn’t honorable, it’s despicable and cloaking it in the name of religion doesn’t change that fact. That’s why Muslim honor killings will continue to show up on Horror Show Sunday, likely forever, because these people are never going to change, at least not voluntarily.  Religion has poisoned their minds.  We need to do away with religion altogether.

Horror Show Sunday: Muslim Pedophiles

Hey, we hear about Catholic Priests diddling kids all the time, but Muslims are every bit as guilty. It’s not surprising, since their prophet screwed a child and they’re apparently good with it, but hey, might as well keep the abuse rolling, right?

In Afghanistan, a Muslim cleric in his 60s has been arrested for marrying a 6-year old girl. The cleric claims the girl was sent to him as “a gift”, but the girl says she’s afraid of her “husband”.

The priest, who lived in the village of Ghor in central Afghanistan, says he married the  girl as a “religious offering” and added that her parents were not only aware of the marriage, but completely supported it.  Well sure, when everyone shares the same religious mind poison, it’s no surprise that they all buy into the same religious horrors.  “The girl was given to me as a gift and we were married so I could raise her,said Mohammad Karim, the cleric who was arrested for child endangerment.After the parents gave their daughter to me, they said, ‘you can take her wherever you want.

Well, after the arrest, the parents decided to backpedal, claiming that their daughter was kidnapped and they were completely unaware.  According to Mohammad Zeman Azami, the deputy police commander of Ghor, “We spoke to her parents and they strongly deny they attended the wedding. On the phone, the parents told me their daughter was kidnapped.”

Afghan law sets the legal limits for marriage at 16 for girls and 18 for boys, although with parental consent, 15 year old girls can be married under the law.  For many poor families, girls are considered a financial burden and getting rid of them as quickly as possible is seen as a solution to the problem.

I wish I could say that this was a surprise but we all know it isn’t.  Pedophilia is extremely common in the religious world, where religious leaders use their positions of power to encourage parents to give over their children for marriage or sexual gratification.  Let’s be honest, would these parents have given their daughter over to a cleric had it not been for the religion aspect?  I find that highly suspect.  But that’s just one more reason why Horror Show Sunday is so necessary.  It exposes these religious cockroaches where they hide, right in plain sight where decent people ought to stomp them out of existence.

 

Horror Show Sunday: Double Tap

Hey, when you can’t get what you want, commit murder and call it a religious right.  In Pakistan, a wealthy Muslim landowner shot a 2-year old boy in the head after his Christian father refused to work for free.

Haji Rasheed refused to pay Samsoon Masih, a member of the local Christian minority, the money he was owed for painting Rasheed’s house.  Rasheed and his son then broke into Masih’s house, firing indiscriminately, injuring two and killing Masih’s 2-year old son, Ayaan, with a bullet to the head.

“The Pakistani government should help develop a sense of patience and equality in society. Muslims should not consider members of other religions insects or animals to be killed with impunity. We will do our best to obtain justice,” said Aneeqa Maria Anthony, coordinator of “The Voice,” an organization that works to protect minority groups in Pakistan.

This is hardly the first story I’ve done where Muslims, in Middle Eastern Muslim-dominated nations, treat non-Muslims like garbage.  Who cares?  It’s just a Christian or a Jew or a Buddhist or an atheist. They’re scum anyhow, right?  They’re going to hell, let’s just help them on their way.  It doesn’t matter.

Christians in Pakistan, who are a distinct minority, often suffer violent attacks by Islamic radicals but get little protection from officials.  They have also been pushed to take drugs, or become trapped in the drug trades, and a Christian man was hacked to death by a group of Muslim drug dealers who were trying to sell drugs to children as they exited his Christian church.

Of course, this isn’t just a Muslim problem, Christians suffer from it as well.  It all comes down to “I’m better than you because my god can beat up your god”.  But it really is all childish because none of their gods are actually real.  But religion puts people into camps, the good and the bad, the saved and the damned, and when you’re convinced the people on the other side of the fence are evil, it isn’t a big step to treating them as if they were sub-human.  But really, it’s the religious assholes that wind up on Horror Show Sunday that are sub-human.  They’ve done it to themselves.  And it’s pathetic.

Horror Show Sunday: I Have a Lawyer…

Jesus has forgiven me!

These religious people are just so well-adjusted, right?  Well, not really.  In Vancouver, a man who was convicted of molesting an 8-year old girl fired his third lawyer because he claimed he already had a lawyer and his name was Jesus Christ.

“I have a lawyer. His name is Jesus Christ and he’s representing me in this courtroom today. And he’s going to speak truly today and going to address this court today providing you give me that opportunity,” said molester David Alan Lessor.  When the judge denied him the chance to rant about his religion, Lessor continued, “But my Jesus Christ, my Lord and my saviour, has forgiven me and pardoned me and found me not guilty.”

Yeah, this guy sounds stable.

Lessor went on to say that “I have a friend, the holy spirit, the angels of God are here,” and that “being heard by all of heaven. I’m going to strongly advise you that my God will send his angels to deliver me from your hands.”  Sure.  How’s that going for you?

Why is it that the crazier someone is, the more likely they are to try religious grandstanding?  This is hardly the first story I’ve told of someone who tried the “God will get me out of jail” card and it never goes well for them.  This guy needs serious psychological counseling and a rubber room.  I just don’t know how different he is from millions of religious believers who actually believe this imaginary friend crap but refuse to be open about it, knowing how horrible it will make them look.  Sorry, having a filter doesn’t make you any more sane than someone without one.

But crazy is what the religious are, Horror Show Sunday is just a small exercise in demonstrating their craziness to the world.  Hopefully this guy gets the help he needs, but the one thing we all know he won’t get is psychological help getting rid of his absurd belief in the supernatural.  That’s one form of insanity that is enshrined in human culture.  Sad, isn’t it?

Horror Show Sunday: Slitting Throats for Allah

This is a case of  two religious groups going to war, and police should have seen it coming.  Back in July of 2016, Jacques Hamel, a Catholic priest in northern France, was attacked by two knife-wielding Muslims, one of whom slit his throat for Allah.

“They forced him to his knees. He wanted to defend himself. And that’s when the tragedy happened,” said Sister Danielle, a nun who escaped the scene. “They recorded themselves. They did a sort of sermon around the altar, in Arabic. It’s a horror,”

Both assailants were shot by police as they tried to flee.  Eyewitnesses report they were both shouting “Allahu Akbar!”  One of them was carrying three knives, plus some fake explosives and the other had fake explosives and a kitchen timer wrapped in aluminum foil in his backpack.

But the attacker, 19-year-old Adel Kermiche, was wearing a police electronic monitoring bracelet at the time he was shot by authorities.  He was a well known ISIS sympathizer who had been arrested back in 2015 in Germany while trying to join Syrian extremists using his brother’s identification.  He was arrested again in Turkey a few months later using his cousin’s ID.  In fact, it was Kermiche’s family who reported him to authorities because they suspected he was becoming radicalized and wanted to keep him from running off to the Middle East to join ISIS.  Part of Kermiche’s sentence was to report his whereabouts to police every day, plus wear a tracking bracelet.  Unfortunately, it allowed him to turn off the bracelet for several hours every morning, which is when the attack took place.

There was a list found in Kermiche’s apartment detailing other attacks that the two planned to carry out. At the time of the attack, France was in the midst of a string of terrorist attacks that claimed 147 lives.  So much for the religion of peace, huh?  But this is pretty standard for Horror Show Sunday.  Religion ruins lives and poisons minds.  It causes people to do insane things in the name of imaginary gods. And that’s why it has to be stopped.

Horror Show Sunday: Catholic Child Rape

I far too often report on Catholic priests who get away with molesting children, but I’m happy to say that this time, they got exactly what they deserved.  A Catholic priest from Kerala, India, was sentenced to a double-life sentence after being convicted of molestation of a minor.

Father Edwin Figarez, 41, was found guilty of repeatedly molesting a young girl while at a local church, part of the Kottappuram Catholic diocese.  The 14-year old girl finally told her mother what was going on and her mother reported the crime to the police.  Figarez went on the run, being helped by his brother, Sylvester Figarez, to evade capture.  The brother was also arrested and given a one year sentence for aiding a fugitive.  Also charged was Doctor Ajitha, belonging to Puthenvelikkara Primary Health Center, for failing to report the crime to authorities, although the doctor will serve no jail time.

According to authorities, Figarez would call the girl to his quarters, under the guise of counseling her, and had molested her on many occasions, starting around January 2015.  This went on for nearly 2 years, until he was arrested and charged under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offense (Pocso) provisions, which were passed in 2012.  It sounds just like something devised to protect minors from Catholic priests.

This is exactly the kind of thing that I talk about all the time, a crime that simply would not have happened were religion not involved.  Catholicism, indeed a lot of religion, gives these men unfettered access to innocent children who are trained that these are men of God and hence to be trusted implicitly.  There aren’t a lot of places these days where single men could take young girls into their bedrooms privately without anyone batting an eye, but in religious circles, this is still very common. It’s lucky that this girl’s mother believed her, I think there’s a general skepticism that holy men of the cloth would ever do that kind of thing, although with the number of cases we see, that skepticism certainly shouldn’t exist.  It is religion and the beliefs surrounding religion that allow these abuses to take place. It is highly unlikely that they would happen at all without religion being involved.

But what can you expect when it comes to Catholicism?  That’s why they feature so prominently on Horror Show Sunday and why the cases of Catholic sexual abuse continue to flood in.  Religion gets a pass far too often and when it does, the innocent are often harmed.

Horror Show Sunday: Death for Sharing

When does sharing something on Facebook get you killed?  When it pisses off the childish religion of peace, of course.  Nahed Hattar, a former-Christian writer in Jordan, was arrested  for posting a cartoon deemed to be offensive to Islam, but while he was awaiting trial, which is absurd to begin with, he was assassinated on the steps of the courthouse, shot three times by someone reported to be a member of Jordanian security forces.

The cartoon, shown on the left, depicts God being treated like a servant by an Arab man who is in bed with two women and demanding wine and cashews.  It was supposed to illustrate the twisted religious views of groups like ISIS, who Hattar argued were not following Islam properly.  Hattar was charged with inciting sectarian violence and insulting Islam, but he was released on bail.  It was on his return to court that he was assaulted and murdered in cold blood.

I guess you can’t disagree with ISIS without getting your head blown off.

The killer, Riyad Ismail, 49, was sentenced to death in December.  He was charged with premeditated murder, terrorism and possession of an illegal firearm.  Judge Ziad al-Edwan said Ismail was sentenced “for having carried out a deadly terrorist act”.

Ismail responded with “Allah suffices me because he is the best disposer of affairs”, which is a traditional Muslim prayer for those who feel that human justice is irrelevant because only Allah can judge.  This is why it is so hard to change radical Muslims with the justice system, they simply don’t care about anything outside of Sharia courts.

The court also sentenced the man who sold Ismail the gun and the man who introduced him to the weapon merchant to one year in jail each.
I wish I could say that any of this surprises me, but it doesn’t.  There are tons of cases where Muslims simply murder anyone that they think insulted Islam, even while they are being prosecuted by the courts.  Islamic fundamentalists simply don’t care.  They will take justice into their own hands because they think their imaginary friend demands it.  That’s why Islam has quickly outpaced every other religion as the #1 religion on Horror Show Sunday.

Horror Show Sunday: Get Raped or Fry!

I really get sick and tired of doing all of these stories on Islam, but the Middle East is such a religious cesspool that it’s hard to avoid.  This time out, we get 19 women in Mosul, Iraq, who were burned alive because they refused to become sex slaves for ISIS.

“They were punished for refusing to have sex with Daesh militants,” local activist Abdulla al-Malla told the Kurdish news agency ARA News. “Nobody could save them from the savage execution.”

Yes, that’s right, they could either get raped for Allah or they could get fried in an iron cage.  Wonderful choices there.

ISIS controlled the area from 2014 and they kept thousands of Yedizi women as sex slaves for their troops.  Some who have escaped captivity report that many women kill themselves to escape ISIS cruelty.  According to Muslims, the Yedizi are devil worshipers and little better than animals.

Skye Wheeler with Human Rights Watch, says “The longer they are held by ISIS, the more horrific life becomes for Yezidi women, bought and sold, brutally raped, their children torn from them. Many of the abuses, including torture, sexual slavery, and arbitrary detention, would be war crimes if committed in the context of the armed conflict, or crimes against humanity if they were part of ISIS policy during a systematic or widespread attack on the civilian population. The abuses against Yezidi women and girls documented by Human Rights Watch, including the practice of abducting women and girls and forcibly converting them to Islam and/or forcibly marrying them to ISIS members, may be part of a genocide against Yezidis.”

But hey, what do you expect from people with imaginary friends and beliefs based on primitive books? Maybe it’s time we revised our definition of war crimes and hold these animals accountable.  Of course, getting them to the Hague would be difficult, they’d just try to blow it up.  You can’t reason with the unreasonable and you can’t argue with the fanatical.  So we’ll just keep reporting this on Horror Show Sunday, because people have to know what’s going on.

Horror Show Sunday: Kids with Bomb Vests

It’s bad enough that crazy Muslim adults strap on bomb vests and blow themselves, and everyone around them, to kingdom come, but when they’re using children, that’s even more reprehensible. But of course, those fun-loving animals over in ISIS are only too happy to sacrifice anyone they can to their imaginary friend.  Take this case, where a child, reportedly between 12 and 14, blew themselves up at a Turkish wedding in Gaziantep, killing more than 50 and injuring another 90.

Of course, if you’re going to use a child murderer, why not have them kill mostly children?  Reports say that 29 of the victims were under the age of 18.  22 were under the age of 14.  One woman lost four of her five children and told reporters that “if it wasn’t for my only surviving child, I would have killed myself”.

The bomb was reportedly packed with scraps of metal to ensure the greatest damage possible.  This is how Islamic terror works.  They want to kill as many as they can, as indiscriminately as they can, for the glory of Allah.

Fuck Allah.  And fuck Islam.  These people are animals.  They are not attacking military targets, they are not acting politically, they are trying to murder innocent children.

Veli Can, an eyewitness, describes the scene. “There was blood and body parts everywhere.” That’s some great religion of peace you people have there.

Of course, this isn’t uncommon at all in Turkey, where Islamic suicide bombings happen all the time.  In fact, in 2016, there were 6 separate attacks which killed hundreds.  A double suicide bombing in Ankara in October 2015 killed more than 100.

Someone please remind me why we shouldn’t blame Islam again?  We know that the religion is what’s driving these animals to murder indiscriminately.  How is Islam not responsible?  They’re taking all of these blood-soaked ideas straight out of the Qur’an.  Horror Show Sunday is awash with murders committed in the name of Allah.  Stop pretending that Islam isn’t at fault.  We all know it is.

Horror Show Sunday: Down the Throat

Religious insanity is hard to justify, but when crazy people believe absurd things, violence and harm is not far behind.  Such is the case of Juanita Gomez, 49, a resident of Oklahoma, who became convinced that her daughter, 33-year-old Geneva, was possessed by a demon.  Because that’s something normal people believe.  Instead of seeking psychological help, which she certainly needed, she decided it would be a better idea to shove a crucifix down her daughter’s throat, punching her repeatedly at the same time, until she died. But of course, Juanita wasn’t too sorry to see her daughter die, instead she laid the bloody crucifix on her chest and arranged her dead body in the shape of a cross, which is how authorities found her.

Police say that Gomez admits to the murder, saying she was trying to “rid Satan from her daughter’s body.”  She was arrested and charged with first degree murder.  Too bad religious insanity isn’t a crime. But when she got to jail, she denied the court-appointed attorney, saying she already had one that “believes in God like me”.  I guess idiots flock together.

“I can’t imagine a mother doing that to her daughter, you know. I don’t have any words,” said a neighbor who didn’t want to be identified.  This is what happens when you take your imaginary friends seriously. But seriously, is anyone surprised?  This is yet another example of what happens when religion goes too far, when people lose the ability to think critically about the things they believe.  This is commonplace on Horror Show Sunday, people who hold insane religious beliefs strongly and people get hurt because of it. Because religion never hurts anyone, right?  But this crime simply could not have happened without the religious component.  It couldn’t have happened if Juanita wasn’t so fanatically faithful.  And because of it, her daughter Geneva has lost her life.  But I’m sure Juanita isn’t at all sorry.  She was fighting for her imaginary soul, after all.

 

Horror Show Sunday: Proud of Honor Killing

Oh look, that wonderful religion of peace is killing people again!  This time, Pakistani social media sensation Qandeel Baloch got strangled by her brother, because “girls are born to stay home.”

The 25 year-old Qandeel was murdered by her brother at her family home in the city of Multan in the Pakistani province of Punjab.  After initially trying to escape, her brother, Waseem Baloch, said he had no regrets about the murder.  “I am proud of what I did. I drugged her first, then I killed her. She was bringing dishonor to our family.”  He says that by killing her, he has “earned his place in heaven.”

Following posting pictures of herself on her Instagram account with Mufti Abdul Qavi, a senior member of the clergy, Waseem said he had enough.  “I planned this after her scandal with the mufti and was waiting for the right time.”  Investigators are looking into Qavi’s possible connection with the murder.  Qandeel’s mother accused the cleric of provoking her son into carrying out the murder. She claims her son carried out the killing on the cleric’s advice.

According to the Independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, as many as 212 women were murdered in “honor killings” in just the first half of 2016 alone.  “There is no honor in honor killing, in fact there can be nothing more degrading than to engage in brutal murder and to refer to it as honor,” says Nawaz Sharif, Pakistan’s Prime Minister.  However, very little has been done to stop the kind of religious murders that have plagued the country throughout its history.

This is what happens when people take religion seriously, when they allow their absurd beliefs to override their responsibilities to humanity.  This isn’t going to stop any time soon either because religion always gets a pass.  People care more about their faith than about the facts.  And that results in death for far too many innocents.  But what do I know, I just write the honorless Horror Show Sunday?

Horror Show Sunday: Praying in the Car

Not the actual event, but you get the idea.

Some people deserve the Darwin Award.  Here’s a quick story from Florida where a 28-year old woman drove her car into a house because, get this, she had her eyes closed and was praying at the time.  The unnamed woman entirely missed a stop sign, drove through the intersection and plowed into a house.  She then tried to escape but her car got stuck in the sand and she was unable to flee.  She was arrested and charged with reckless driving with property damage.  Luckily, no one was injured.

She should have been bound over for psychiatric evaluation.

Seriously, what the hell is wrong with these people?  Oh right, they believe absurd things!  It would be one thing if she lost control of her car and slammed into a house, but she had her eyes closed and was talking to herself.  She needs to lose her license because not only did she cause damage to someone’s house, she could have killed someone.  I’m sure this is not the first time this delusional idiot tried this little stunt.  Some people are not mentally competent enough to operate a motor vehicle.

Stop praying and start driving!

I wish I could say this was a one-off, but it isn’t.  There’s another case where a 63-year old woman in Ohio drove into a 50-year old woman and broke her neck because she was praying while driving.  Marilyn Perry told police that she had been praying over personal problems.  Police initially thought she was either on a cell phone or inebriated, but they could find no drug that influenced her driving.

Yes there was.  Religion.  Religion is a drug.

She was charged $10,000 in restitution to the victim, plus required to attend a substance abuse program. Hopefully they can wean her off of her idiotic beliefs.    I wouldn’t hold my breath though, because the one legal drug that we have, religion, always gets a pass.  But what else is new on  Horror Show Sunday?

Horror Show Sunday: Church of Pedo

Since we revisited Muslim violence last week, let’s peek in on those lovable pedophiles in the Church of England.  I think I’ve written about the Peter Ball case before, and the unsurprising fact that the Church, as lots of Christian churches seem to, covered up the facts because they would rather protect their priests than protect innocent children. But now we’re finding that the cover up went much farther than we had suspected and I have to wonder how extensive this “Christian privilege” actually is.

Peter Ball was Bishop of Lewes from 1977-1991 and he resigned his position as Bishop of Gloucester in 1993 amidst an investigation of child molestation against 15-year old Neil Todd.  Now Ball was a very politically connected bishop, he was friends with Prince Charles and regularly dined with Margaret Thatcher as well as other government officials.  Because he assured people that his indiscretion with Todd was a one-time thing, he was let off with a warning, but now it’s coming to light that not only was this not a single incident, but that lots of people knew about it and pushed to hush the whole thing up.

Like this is a surprise.

In fact, the CoE had other complaints against Ball, including one from a decade prior to the Todd case, where a man wrote them a letter complaining that Ball had indecently assaulted him, which was not only entirely ignored, but was never provided to police as the church is legally required to do.  In fact, we’re finding now that the church had not just one other incident, but seven that had been reported to them and they had quietly swept under the rug.  This is not only unfair to the victims, but in the case of Neil Todd, he later took his own life, frustrated that his molester got away with it.

But hey, it’s just religion, right?  Religion never hurts anyone!  It’s just another case for Horror Show Sunday and unfortunately, there will be many, many, many more just like it to come.

Horror Show Sunday: Allahu Axe-bar

I bet you thought I forgot about the crazy Muslims, huh?  Actually, I’ve been purposely ignoring them for the past couple of weeks because if I reported on every violent Islamic outburst, this would be the Muslim Horror Show even more than it is.  But fear not, here comes some more violence from that lovable religion of peace.

On a train near Wurzburg, Germany, an unidentified teenager wielding an axe screamed Allahu Akbar and started hacking at passengers.  The assailant, a 17-year old Afghani, injured more than 15 people before he was shot dead by police.

As should be no surprise to anyone but the liberal left, the attacker was an immigrant to Germany, let in by Angela Merkel’s ridiculous immigration policies.  And as again should surprise no one, these religious zealots freak out and murder people at an alarming rate.  There is no doubt that these people are operating out of their religious beliefs, why do so many people refuse to acknowledge that Islam is to blame?

Three other attacks took place in Germany immediately following this incident.  The first, an Iranian teenager in Munich shot nine other people before taking his own life and the second, a Syrian man killed a woman with a machete, wounding 5 others. Finally, on the same day as the last, a Syrian refugee who had just been turned down for residency blew himself up outside a bar in Ansbach, wounding 15.

But of course, it isn’t the fault of almost exclusively Islamic refugees!  Open the floodgates!  Our liberal ideology hasn’t caused enough innocent German blood to spill yet!  I find the whole thing to be utterly despicable and you should too.

Yet we find these cases on Horror Show Sunday time and time again and nobody on the left seems to be particularly bothered by it, at least they aren’t calling for Europe to stop allowing in Islamic animals without any filtering.  These same people call Trump a racist for wanting to come up with a system to keep the terrorists out while allowing those in legitimate need, those who are willing to integrate into society in.  But yeah, liberals are idiots.  This is just one more example.

Horror Show Sunday: Sex With Infants

When you’ve been doing this as long as I have, these stories all seem to run together.  How many times have I written about priests and ministers and the like used their status as religious leaders to attract and abuse young girls or convincing their parents to let them get away with molestation?  I’ve honestly lost track.

But here we go again.  This time, Joel Alexander Wright, 23, a seminary student, tried to adopt a young girl from Mexico, specifically with the intent to have sex with her.

He posted on the Tijuana Craigslist that he was seeking to adopt a young girl under the age of 3. When someone responded, he wrote to her “that he wanted to ‘adopt/own a baby girl (under the age of 3) and I want to have intercourse with her after I own her but don’t be telling people that … I won’t pay until I have seen the baby and I will pay the parents then … the cheapest baby under 3 would be good.”

Good thing the respondent reported it to the authorities.  Wright flew from Ohio, where he attended the Catholic seminary, Pontifical College Josephinum, to San Diego, and e-mailed an undercover FBI agent, saying that he “picked up an infant pain relief med and a pretty outfit which I think should fit the 1 or 2 year old.”  He also asked where he could buy lube.  When he was arrested, he had “baby clothes, sleep aids, bottles, toys, candy and lubricant” according to authorities.

He was sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison, and I assume a lifetime status as a sexual predator.

This is certainly not the first time he had attempted to get his hands on a foreign infant for sex.  Back in 2015, he had agreed to go to Mexico for a rendezvous with a 4-year old.  He said to an undercover agent:

Now I will agree that Wright didn’t specifically use his religion as influence, but isn’t it amazing how many Catholics wind up diddling little kids?  How many people in seminary today are there because they want unrestricted access to children?  I don’t know that we have any real figures, but a documentary that came out several years ago, Deliver Us From Evil, suggests it may be as high as 10%.  It can’t be a coincidence that so many Catholics and other Christian preachers seem to be sexually attracted to young children of either gender.  There are so many stories on Horror Show Sunday that prove this to be true, why is everyone so hesitant to recognize it?  Why does religion get a pass?  I don’t get it.

Horror Show Sunday: Throwing Shit for God

A man in Manhattan has been arrested and charged with flinging feces at two women on the street, but of course, it’s not his fault.  God told him to do it!

Ekwan Hill, 42, is accused of throwing feces at a 33-year old woman, then, later in the day. he followed another woman and ground feces into her buttocks.  The second attack was caught on video.

He was arrested and charged with assault and criminal forcible touching.  As he was being put into a police car, Hill is reported to have said: “Why the filth? It’s a Farrakhan thing…”  He’s also reported to have said “God did it!” Prosecutors also tacked on sex abuse charges and, at least at the time of these articles, Hill was being held on $90k bail.  As he’s homeless, it’s unlikely he’s going to be getting out, nor should he.

Of course, Hill is insane, he has a long criminal history and according to one of the people at the shelter he was staying at, “He’s really borderline delirious — bad body odor, talks to himself, keeps to himself. Those feces he threw was probably his own. He’s an outcast type of dude.”  But even though he is crazy, his craziness has been given form by his delusional beliefs in God.

So what’s the difference between some obviously crazy guy throwing crap at people because he thinks God wants him to, and someone who has some self control, but still believes that God talks to them? Is it the self-control that differentiates between the seemingly sane and the insane?  Why isn’t it the delusional beliefs that lump them all into the same camp?  That’s something I will never understand. If Hill had said that Bigfoot ordered him to crap in his hand and throw it and a bunch of other people who believed that Bigfoot talked to them shook their heads and called him insane, would society be able to differentiate between the two groups?  I don’t think so.

I’ve written quite a bit about religious delusion and crazy theists on Horror Show Sunday.  Why can’t we just consider the believers to be the crazy ones instead of the ones who act on what their supposed gods tell them to do?  Something to think about.

Horror Show Sunday: Murdered For Being Hungry

The kind of childish religious in-fighting that we see around the world is disgusting, especially when one group of delusional people target another group of delusional people and this leads to violence against the innocent.  Such is the case here where Muslims in Uganda went after a Christian’s family because she dared to eat during the Ramadan fast.

So what do they do?  Do they kill this woman who dared to be hungry?  Nope, they poisoned her infant daughter.  It’s the religion of peace!

24-year-old Angel Nabirye, a Christian living in the Luuka District in Uganda, was eating during the daylight fasting hours of Ramadan.  Her mother-in-law, a Muslim, demanded to know why she was doing so, even though non-Muslims are not required to observe the Muslim holiday.  She said that her daughter needed to be breastfed so she had to eat.  The mother-in-law, Nubu Kiiza. brought herbs for the baby, but after several hour, the baby died.  Hospital officials determined that the baby had been poisoned.  The mother-in-law told her son, Angel’s husband, that the baby had been killed specifically because Angel wasn’t respecting the Muslim traditions on Ramadan.

Yeah, you have to love these Muslim monsters, don’t you?

But this is nothing new and certainly nothing uncommon.  Violence against Christians in Uganda by Muslims has been on the rise in recent years.  Not long before, Christian preacher Yokannah Zirinkuma was found dead near his home, following an encounter with Muslims who demanded that he stop “misleading” Muslims or else face Allah’s sword of judgment.  Ibrahim Mwede, a Muslim, was arrested for the crime, in which he was accused of strangling Zirinkuma for his beliefs.

And this is Uganda, where even the Christians are violent fucks.  This is the place that passed the short-lived “kill the gays” law, pushed by American religious zealot and “crimes against humanity” lottery winner Scott Lively.  It’s hard to feel a lot of sympathy for one side who wants to kill the gays, when they’re murdered by the other side who wants to kill the infidels.  Maybe it’s time we nuked all of these idiots from orbit.  It’s the only way to be sure.

How long are we going to allow these religious animals to run amuck and kill the innocent, for no reason other than their religious delusions?  Longer than Horror Show Sunday is around, I’m unfortunately certain.

Horror Show Sunday: Muslims Rioting in India

It never fails to disgust me how much adoration radical Muslims have for their silly book of mythology. And when someone does something they don’t like, they take to the streets in a murderous rage, determined to kill anyone who does anything that offends them.  Once again, this happened in India, where pages of a Qur’an were found torn and the whole place went bat-shit insane, attacked the police and burned a bus, resulting in more than 250 people being arrested.

After finding the torn pages near Jarg Chowk in Malerkotla, a mob of more than 300 went to meet with Punjab Assembly legislator Farzana Nissara Khatoon, but were turned away.  Instead of making an appointment or going elsewhere, this group of people freaked the fuck out, stormed the compound and started destroying stuff.  According to reports, the security forces fired in self-defense as the mob attacked them and lit things on fire.  8 people were injured in the attack, although luckily, no one died.

What the hell is wrong with these people?  It’s just a book!  Print more!  But no, instead you get crazed fanatics rampaging through the town, lighting things on fire and trying to murder the “guilty”, whether they are actually guilty or not, it has to be religion.  Or liberalism.  It’s hard to tell the difference sometimes.

These stories crop up time and time again though, where someone gets butt-hurt over some idiotic book and goes on a rampage, reducing worthwhile property to rubble and injuring or killing innocent people over something so shallow and stupid.  If it’s not someone disrespecting the Qur’an, it’s someone drawing a picture of Mohammad.  What children these Muslims are!

How many of these stories will appear on Horror Show Sunday?  How long will the religious children get to run rampant and destroy the lives and livelihood of people because someone hurt their religious feelings?  I guess only time will tell.

Horror Show Sunday: Another Exorcism Death

It comes as no surprise that when religion gets involved with crazy people who don’t know when to stop, people get hurt.  Our story this week comes from Germany, where 5 people have been arrested and charged with murder, after their relative was subjected to an exorcism at a German hotel.  Things didn’t work out so well for the victim.

A 41-year old woman was found dead at a hotel in Frankfurt after her family decided that she had been possessed by demons and required an exorcism.  The family came from South Korea.  According to reports, they exerted “massive force on her chest and stomach area” while stuffing rags into the woman’s mouth to keep her from screaming.

“According to our current information the suspects subjected the victim to pain and agony for at least two hours, and their actions were motivated by a callous and merciless attitude,” Nadja Niesen, the German prosecutor said. “The woman eventually died from asphyxiation as a result of the massive chest compression and violence to her neck.”‘

Sure, because this sounds like such a good idea.  This is what happens when you bypass reality and start believing in demons and gods.  But of course, religion never hurts anyone, does it?

The ringleader of the exorcism gang is identified as Doean K., the cousin of the dead woman.  She has been sentenced to 6 years in prison for the murder and the other four are still being considered for sentencing.  Granted, I find 6 years for murder to be ridiculously light, but I suspect they plead down to manslaughter because these are religious fanatics and even in Europe, religion often gets a pass.  But without that religion, this is yet another crime that couldn’t possibly have taken place.  If you didn’t believe in imaginary men in the sky, why would you try to exorcise imaginary demons?  It’s something I spend a lot of time asking about on Horror Show Sunday, and no one has ever had a decent explanation.

Horror Show Sunday: Punishing the Victims

Kessler Lichtenegger

It’s bad enough that sexual abuse is so rampant in religious organizations, but when they try to blame the victims of said abuse as a means of getting back at them for daring to complain, that’s when we need to really question these religious houses of ill repute.

Kessler Lichtenegger, a former volunteer at Westside Family Church in Lenexa, Kansas, plead guilty to attempted rape and electronic solicitation of sex from minors.  But when the girls, who were 14 at the time of the assault, and their families tried to file a lawsuit against the church in question, the church tried to publicly shame the girls and their families by requiring that they be publicly identified before the lawsuit could continue.

The church filed a petition that read: “While the Defendant admits the sensitivity of the allegations, Plaintiffs tactically decided to ‘draw first blood’ on the issue publicly, in time, that may ultimately be seen in hindsight to be a bad decision. However, they should not be able to hide behind pseudonyms after systematically and intentionally initiating a campaign specifically designed to damage Defendant’s reputation.”

Well I hate to break it to you, but minors are never identified in the courts in sexual abuse cases.  Their anonymity is important to maintain.  In fact, David Clohessy, director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, finds it absurd.  “This has happened in a relatively small number of cases involving adults, but I’ve never seen a defendant try to ‘out’ kids who are still kids in a child sex case.”  To demand this will just stop other kids from coming forward after being molested.  “It is a shameful move by officials who profess to be ‘Christians.’”

No, it’s shameful for anyone, Christian or not.  It’s a complete dick move, but one I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised by.  But we’re talking about a church not only should have known better,  but admits they didn’t do their due diligence with Lichtenegger, who is now serving 17 years for his crime.  He volunteered to work at the church, who apparently missed the fact that he plead guilty in 2012 to sexual assault on a developmentally disabled girl and another sexual felony.  How do you miss that and then put someone like that in charge of kids?

Oh yeah, it’s a church.  Of course they missed it.  How else would they stay up front and center on Horror Show Sunday?

Horror Show Sunday: Bombing Artisan Bakeries

Hey, might as well keep the Bangladesh bandwagon rolling because those Islamic idiots are still murdering people in the name of their ridiculous religion.

This time, a group of heavily armed men, shouting “God is Great” stormed an artisan bakery in Dhaka, Bangladesh and started setting off explosives.  They took at least 20 people hostage.

Several of the kitchen staff hid in the bathroom, hoping to be rescued.  28-year old Soumir Roy sent a text message to his brother that read: “We are here so if possible break the wall of the bathroom and rescue us.”  However, after a rescue attempt, Roy and his co-workers were dead, more victims of radical Islamic violence.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, reporting that “More than 20 individuals of varying nationalities killed after a commando attack on the Artisan restaurant.”  To date, more than 18 similar attacks have taken place in Bangladesh in recent history, perpetuated against non-Muslims.

Unfortunately, the government of Bangladesh refuses to acknowledge that they have a serious religious problem.  They insist that there are no radical Muslim groups operating within the country, which is ludicrous to say the least.  Ali Riaz, a professor of political science at Illinois State University, argues, “The continuous denial of the presence of local militant group connections with international terror groups has not been helpful. What we’re witnessing can’t be small groups coming together. It is clearly a very coordinated attack. If this doesn’t convince them to come out of denial, then I don’t know what will.”

This is what happens when people refuse to admit that there is a major problem in the world and that problem is called religion. When you get people who are willing to murder others over which imaginary friend they follow, you’ve got issues.  The kind of absurd denial that we see worldwide just guarantees that these stories will remain a mainstay on Horror Show Sunday for many years to come.

Horror Show Sunday: Hacked to Death in Bangladesh

Gathering flowers has never been more dangerous in Bangladesh, at least if you’re non-Muslim. That wonderful religion of peace is at it again, this time hacking a Hindu priest to death while he was gathering flowers to be used while praying.

52-year old Shyamananda Das was attacked by three men who rode up on a bicycle, wearing helmets. They jumped off, murdered him and rode away.  The weapon of choice, the same weapon that has been used in other murders committed by Muslims, was a “chapatti”, a long, heavy knife very similar to a machete.

The government of Bangladesh has tried to stop these murders, arresting more than 14,000 people so far as they try to end the religiously-motivated killings in this Muslim-majority nation. Numerous non-Muslims have been murdered in cold blood over the last couple of years by religious Muslims dedicated to eradicating the country of heretics.

And of course, Das was not the first Hindu murdered in Bangladesh, in fact, he was the second Hindu priest to be killed in a month.  70-year old Anando Gopal Ganguly was walking to his temple when, similarly, he was attacked and hacked to death by Muslim extremists.  ISIS claimed responsibility for the murder as they tried to inflame Muslims to violence during the month of Ramadan, but officials suspect that the murder was actually organized by Islami Chattra Shibir, a college student wing of the radical Muslim political party Jamaat-e-Islami Bangladesh.

Seriously, what’s wrong with these people?  How can anyone defend these religious monsters and their murderous ways?  There is no question what drives these animals to these despicable acts, yet the political left defends them because they’re brown.  How can they be so damned stupid and ignorant at the same time?  I doubt Bangladesh will stop being featured on Horror Show Sunday any time soon, just as I doubt the political left in the west will grow a spine, or a brain.

Horror Show Sunday: Botched Surgery

Religion is a curse upon humanity, if curses were real and weren’t caused by conscious decisions made by people who ought to know better, but can’t because they believe idiotic nonsense.  So here we  go again, with religion causing death and destruction in its wake.  What else is new?

Mayar Mohamed Mousa died following religiously-motivated genital mutilation in Egypt.  While FGM has been illegal in Egypt since 2008, and it’s really disgusting that it remained legal that long, but strongly religious families still practice it as a means of “purifying” their daughers.  Mayar’s twin sister successfully underwent the procedure, just before a second surgery brought her life to an end.

It isn’t like this was a surgery carried out in sub-standard conditions by unqualified people.  An actual doctor carried out the procedure at Egypt’s El Canal National Hospital.  The hospital was shut down by authorities following Mayar’s death and the doctor will be prosecuted.  “We have been vigilant in monitoring for these cases and we have increased our focus. But we have not seen anything like this in recent months.  This is a very dangerous and bad practice that must end,” said Dr Lotfi Abdel-Samee, the health ministry undersecretary in the Suez province.

“Criminalization isn’t enough,” said Dalia Abdelhameed, the gender and women’s rights officer at the Egypt-based Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights. “The national campaigns have to confront the root causes that propel the families to circumcise their daughters in hopes of controlling their sexual desires.” Yes they do, but that root cause is Islam and I seriously doubt anyone will ever do anything about it.

FGM is a widespread practice in Islam, with some sects insisting that it is mandatory, particularly Sunni sects.  While it doesn’t appear anywhere in the Qur’an, it certainly does in various hadiths, including Al-Muwatta, 2 19.75, which says:

Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Said from Said ibn al-Musayyab that Abu Musa al-Ashari came to A’isha, the wife of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and said to her, “The disagreement of the companions in a matter which I hate to bring before you has distressed me.” She said, “What is that? You did not ask your mother about it, so ask me.” He said, “A man penetrates his wife, but becomes listless and does not ejaculate. She said, “When the circumcised part passes the circumcised part ghusl is obligatory Abu Musa added, “I shall never ask anyone about this after you.”

But Shia sects are not immune.  Imam Al-Sadiq writes in his hadith that “circumcision is makrumah for women”, meaning it is a noble deed.  That anyone would believe this in the modern day is disgusting.

But then again, this is Islam we’re talking about.  Disgusting is what lands them on Horror Show Sunday.

Horror Show Sunday: Chained in the Basement

You know those crazy anti-LGBT crusaders that are always banging on their Bibles?  Yeah, you probably ought to pay more attention to what they’re doing because they could be positively evil.

Timothy and Esten Ciboro, father and son, were well known for protesting Target’s transgender bathroom policy.  But worse than that, they were also keeping a young girl locked up in their basement for what turned out to be nearly three years.  The girl, 13, who turned out to be Timothy Ciboro’s stepdaughter, was repeatedly raped and abused, according to reports.

Timothy, 53 and Esten, 27, were arrested and charged with kidnapping and child endangerment after the girl managed to escape from her basement dungeon.  When the police arrived, they were trying to escape with two other children that lived in the house, their pets and a gun.

Now you might think this was just a couple of crazy people, until you realize that, not only are they going to serve as their own attorneys, but they are insisting that the only law they will observe, is the law in the Bible.  Esten told the judge that the Bible is “the only law book that truly matters”.  He continued by saying “There’s a great deal of strategy in Scripture and I use those strategies in everything I do, it’s a vital part of everything I do.”

Lawyers strongly argued against the Ciboros representing themselves, but, as crazy religious people do, they argued “Professionals built the Titanic. Amateurs built the ark.”  Yes, they are as delusional and fanatical as they seem.  For people who say that the Bible figures into everything they do, it seems raping a child and locking her in the basement, chained to a wall, is no different.  This is what happens when you take religion too seriously, you become a lunatic that would rather follow the disgusting things in the Bible than the actual law of the land they live in.  But what else can you expect on Horror Show Sunday?

Horror Show Sunday: Crushing Your Enemies

Those fun-loving Muslim morons in ISIS are back, this time with another creative way of killing their enemies in the name of Allah.  A couple of weeks ago I reported that they used acid to melt their victims, now they’re going back to stoning, but on a large scale.

In Yemen, ISIS released a video entitled “Crush Your Enemies” where they showed a prisoner being slowly crushed by a boulder.  I guess it’s no surprise that these Muslim monsters appear on Horror Show Sunday so often.  They’ve earned it with their evil.

Of course, they like to mix it up and in the same video, they also tied an “infidel” to a chair and gunned him down and another was beheaded.  The video also serves to show an ISIS fighter named Abu Hanifa al-Holandi, a student from Holland, who went to Yemen to join ISIS.  He strapped on a bomb vest and blew himself up near the Yemeni Presidential palace.  I’m sure his parents are so proud.

Actually, they weren’t.  They were horrified when they found out what their son had done.  According to his father, “He liked playing football and had friends. He’s a good boy, everyone knows that. When it happened, his friends all came here. They didn’t believe it either.”  Hey, this is what happens when you get hyper-religious.  You lose all sense of reality.

So what do we do about these Islamic animals?  And yes, they are acting out of their religious beliefs, there is no question whatsoever that they are.  There is something wrong with anyone who defends these religious monsters and there’s no surprise they virtually all fall on the political left.  How many stories do I have to do, with people screaming “Allah Akbar!” as they commit atrocities for the liberals to acknowledge that this is a religious problem?  I suspect we’ll go on for a very long time before that happens.

Horror Show Sunday: Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Even churches have legal reporting requirements when they find out that sexual abuse is going on, but many times, they simply don’t report it because, I can only guess, they don’t feel that they have any obligation to society or their legal requirements.  This is one such case, where a church in McMinnville, Oregon, simply ignored their duty to report the sexual abuse of a young girl by her father to the authorities, resulting in the girl contracting herpes.

The girl is suing for $5.2 million dollars, alleging that the church leadership had a duty to report the crime and failed to carry through on their legally mandated requirement.

Allegedly, the church leadership thought she was accusing her stepfather of molestation and simply didn’t believe her.  According to her attorney Randall Vogt, “They essentially said, ‘He’s a good guy. He wouldn’t do something like that.'”  Except it isn’t up to them to make those judgements, they have the same legal requirements as school officials and doctors to report sexual abuse cases to the authorities regardless of how valid they might think they are.

According to the suit, the girl reported the abuse to the church on many different occasions, starting when she was between 6-7.  The church not only failed to report to the police as required by the Oregon mandatory reporter law, they ignored their own stated policies on reporting abuse.  The girl finally told her mother and a counselor, who did their job and reported the abuse to the Oregon Department of Human Services.  The father’s parental rights have since been rescinded.

Because the abuse went on so long, the girl has suffered psychological trauma and has tried to commit suicide on several occasions.  The girls is now 12 and if a 12 year old is trying to kill themselves, you know something serious is wrong.  The suit asks for $200,000 for medical expenses and counseling costs, plus $5 million for pain and suffering.  In Oregon, if she is found to be a “vulnerable person” because of her age, that could be tripled to $15.6 million.

Now I wouldn’t say, but since sexual abuse in churches has been such a high profile topic for many, many years, I can’t see how any church would not immediately report such allegations, just to cover their own potential legal liability.  It’s horrible when they protect their own pedophile clergy, but when they can’t even do their job as mandated reporters under the law, they earn their way onto Horror Show Sunday.
