Horror Show Tuesday: Nine Men and a Boy

Hey, watch out for the ledge! Ahhhhhh!

Those scamps in ISIS are back, this time murdering 10 people in cold blood, including a 15 year old boy, all accused of being gay.  Seven were killed in the Syrian city of Rastan and another three in the town of Hreitan in northern Aleppo.  As with so many of these things, they were all thrown off of high roofs to their deaths.

According to the executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, Jessica Stern, ISIS is encouraging your run of the mill Muslim to act independently and violently attack perceived gay people.  “In addition to men perceived as gay, trans-identified people and lesbians are among those who have been raped and killed.”

But please, tell me how these are political acts and not something that their religion tells them.  Go ahead, tell me.

This stuff isn’t at all uncommon in ISIS controlled areas of the Middle East and it’s spreading.  Taking innocent people whose only “crime” is being who they actually are, hunting them down because you think your idiot prophet told you to, and subjecting them to torture, rape and murder in the name of your bastard god just cannot be accepted by anyone, for any reason, anywhere.  But it is.  These things just aren’t talked about by the political left, which you’d think they’d at least have to try because this is violence against one of their other pet groups, the gays.  But I guess not insulting brown people is more important than actually defending homosexuals.  And you wonder why I find these people despicable?

It doesn’t matter how many people die at the hands of these religious fanatics.  It doesn’t matter if it’s 9 men and a boy or just a single person done in by the religion of peace.  This cannot be accepted by anyone, as the long, sad list of religious horrors I’ve described over the past couple of years clearly shows.  Horror Show Tuesday is why radical Islam must be stopped.

Horror Show Tuesday: Off With His Head

Hey, as long as we’re off to a good start, let’s just make this whole week about Islamic horrors and violence in the name of Allah.  This time, Islamic State fighters behead a 14 year old boy and force his parents to watch after he missed Friday prayers.  The murder, which occurred in the town of Jarablus, Syria, was attended by dozens of people, among them his parents who were forced to stand idly by as their son was murdered in front of their eyes.

This is another case where, as soon as I started talking about it online, the Muslim apologists on the political left started denying that it had anything to do with Islam.  Because a group of radicals called the Islamic State murdering a boy for apostasy for failing to pray to Allah is not at all religious, right?  Do these people listen to themselves?

I will never, ever understand these leftist assholes when it comes to Islamic violence.  The number of excuses they can make for clear barbarity seems endless.  They insist that they know better why these actions are being carried out than the people who are actually carrying out the actions and explaining, in detail, exactly why they did it.  It makes no sense.  But then again, neither  does liberalism.

So that’s another innocent down, how many more to go before someone starts to take radical Islam seriously?  Sure, we bomb ISIS, we attack the Taliban, we go after Al-Qaeda and, let’s be honest, pretty much ignore Boko Haram, but we don’t go after the core of the problem, the radical interpretation of the Muslim religion.  We’re terrified to bring it up.  This “not all Muslims” thing is stupid.  Studies show that upwards of 20% of Muslims support Sharia law and favor the methods of the terrorists. That’s way too many people to be ignored, but in the west, we’re dedicated to ignoring it anyhow.  That’s why things will keep going wrong in this supposed war on terror.  We refuse to acknowledge the cause of the terrorism.  That guarantees many years of content for Horror Show Tuesday.

Horror Show Tuesday: Church Assault

I’ve always said that there is no real difference between a religion and a cult, a cult is just a religion that lacks power and popularity.  Both have the same insane, unjustifiable beliefs, held by people who refuse to question the crazy stuff that they teach.  But religions want to think better of themselves so they hate it when anyone calls them a cult but they’re really not fooling anyone.  So it should come as no surprise when something bad happens at a local church, the neighbors all knew it was a cult all along.

Bruce Leonard, 65, and Deborah Leonard, 59 have been charged with first degree manslaughter for the death of their son Lucas, 19, and the severe beating of his 17-year old brother during a “counseling session” held at the Word of Life Christian Church in New Hartford, New York.  And nobody is at all surprised that this happened.  Reports state that Bruce Leonard whipped Lucas with his belt after Lucas had threatened to leave the church.  His brother was injured trying to break up the conflict and suffered injuries to his abdomen, genitals, back and thighs.  Four other church members were also arrested following the incident.

According to Lisa Brown, who lived across the street from the church, “When they first took over the building, they would post Mass schedules so people knew when there were services. Now, it’s not like just anyone could go to church there…It’s kind of been the running joke that there’s a cult there.”

Adrian Hectus, who used to live next door, said, “There was just a really weird vibe about the place.”

Julie Howard lives nearby and says it’s always been odd.  “There’s always been weird things going on. You always hear dogs, they’re breeding dogs. The cops have been called there before, they’re not allowed in the building, they can’t get in the building.”  Other neighbors report they’ve heard strange chanting coming from the building, often in the middle of the night. It strikes me as funny because you know how neighbors never believe that the serial killer next door was a monster because he was so normal?  Here, the neighbors all knew something weird was going on.  Unfortunately, religion far too often gets a pass and authorities don’t investigate successfully until it is too late.

So on this Horror Show Tuesday, if your child wants to leave your church, let them.  Don’t get in their way and certainly don’t assault them with your belt.  If your beliefs are worth holding, they will keep holding them.  If they’re not, then your kids are better off walking away.  And so are you.

 

Horror Show Tuesday: Catholic Failures

This is the kind of thing that really pisses me off.  After a Pastoral associate at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Indianapolis, Indiana was arrested and charged with molesting two boys, it takes the victims to scream at the Catholic Church to get them to actually help police with the prosecution.

Oscar Vasquez-Guzman, 38, was arrested and charged with two counts of child molesting, seven counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and one count of attempted sexual misconduct with a minor.  These crimes took place between 2013-2015. Neighbors say there were always boys playing in his yard so they never saw anything wrong.  That’s really scary when you consider the possible ramifications of it.

According to one boy, he was abused on multiple occasions over the course of a year, starting when he was 14.  The other boy says the molestation happened only once, when Guzman invited him over to watch a movie and fondled him.

But victims say that what the church is doing is not enough.  While the local archbishop says he’s cooperating with police, they say that he has lots of power to do more.  In fact it  took a lot of pushing to get him to issue letters to the members of local churches, sent in both English and Spanish, as well as posting it to their website, informing everyone of what happened and what to do if they have either been the victims of religious sexual abuse, or have any knowledge of religious sexual abuse to report to authorities.  You’d think this would be standard operating procedure, considering how many cases the Catholics have to deal with.  Shouldn’t they have learned their lesson by now?

Regardless, this is just another example of the failure of the Catholic Church to keep their parishioners safe. They don’t care, so long as they keep getting money.  That’s why this earns a spot on Horror Show Tuesday.

 

Horror Show Tuesday: Closer My Balls to Thee

You’re not going to catch me doing this, but in India, 400 men, followers of multi-millionaire religious guru Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, cut off their own testicles in an attempt to get closer to God.  Well yeah, if you bleed to death, you might get closer to “God”, but that’s about it.

To date, only one of the men has come forward, saying that he felt that he would be ostracized if he did not perform the “operation” demanded by his guru. Navkiran Singh, the man’s lawyer, said “They were told that only those who get castrated will be able to meet God.”  It should be noted that apparently, Ram Rahim himself is not castrated, which ought to tell you something.

This is actually an old story, happening in 2000 at a hospital run by Ram Rahim Singh, but it is only coming to light today.

This is, of course, not the first time that Ram Rahim has had a run in with the police.  In 2002, he was accused of the murder of an investigative journalist who was looking into Rahim’s cult, and also accused by several female members of rape, although he has never been charged.  He’s been under long-term investigation by India’s Central Bureau of Investigation for various criminal activities but they have not acted, mostly because Rahim wields so much power.  He has over 50 million believers worldwide.

In India, being a guru is big business.  Political candidates can get a big boost in the polls just by being supported by a famous guru.  Many are virtually untouchable by the authorities no matter what they do, even though there has been more of an attempt of late to go after those who have been accused of rape, murder, theft and other crimes.  Hopefully, as India continues to advance, these backwoods gurus will get what’s coming to them.  That’s why I talk about them on Horror Show Tuesday.

Horror Show Tuesday: Claiming Religious Liberty

get-out-of-jail-free-cardThe more the Catholic Church opens its mouth, the more I detest this organization.  It’s not bad enough that it’s full of pedophiles, that the church protects them from prosecution and refuses to change policies which have clearly been responsible for creating the problem, now they’re going to pretend they have no obligation whatsoever to take responsibility for their failures.

Fuck the Catholic Church.

Now they’re trying to pretend that they have “religious liberty” and are therefore not required to pay compensation to victims of priestly sexual abuse, or in fact, pay any attention to the secular courts at all if they don’t want to.  The courts, according to them, have no power whatsoever over the Catholic Church so they can all take a flying leap.

This all came up when a Catholic school violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act in terminating a female teacher who was taking fertility treatments.  The case went to court and the defendant charged that the school had violated the law which bans all employers from discriminating on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.  The Catholic Church decided that not only would it not fight the lawsuit, it wouldn’t even acknowledge it.  It wouldn’t show up.  It would just pretend it wasn’t happening because any suits against the Church must be a violation of their “religious liberty” to do whatever the fuck they want to do.  Likewise, paying court-ordered compensation to victims of priestly sexual abuse is also a violation of their “religious liberties” and, apparently, following bankruptcy laws is as well.

The latter two came in a case where at least 45 priests from the Milwaukee Archdiocese molested more than 200 deaf boys. Ten of these boys were awarded a $17 million settlement, but Archbishop Anthony Dolan transferred $55 million into a cemetery trust to protect it from being confiscated, then declared bankruptcy for the archdiocese.  In 2013, the courts questioned whether the archdiocese had “made a fraudulent, preferential or avoidable transfer” to keep from paying the settlement and while the court was too chickenshit to call the church a fraud, they noted that their use of “religious liberty” would lead to “absurd consequences” and “favor dishonest debtors by preventing courts from inquiring whether a religious entity made a fraudulent transfer”.  This isn’t just some dinky little bankrupt archdiocese in the middle of Bumfuck, Wisconsin, the Vatican has said much the same thing, like this is an automatic “get out of jail free” card for the Church.

Is it any wonder that this criminal organization spends so much time in the Religious Horror Show?  I’m a bit surprised that they’re not as bad off as the Protestants and the Muslims in the rankings.  Ah well, idiots in dresses and funny hats abound, that’s what you can expect on Horror Show Tuesday.

 

Horror Show Tuesday: Renouncing Your Life

Tearing Up QuranI have unfortunately had to spend far too much time focusing on the animals in ISIS and their murderous ways, I thought it was time to take a step back and recognize that it isn’t just the crazy extremists who are engaging in religious horrors for the religion of peace, it’s governments, and in this case, one of our “friends” who is every  bit as bad as the Islamic State.

A court in Saudi Arabia has given the death penalty to a Muslim apostate who filmed himself tearing up a Qur’an, just as Saudi Arabia’s new human rights laws have gone into effect.  It was announced that the court in the town of Hafr al-Batin had handed down the death penalty to an yet unnamed man for the crime of “denouncing his faith”.  “In the video he cursed God, Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) and his daughter Fatimah and ripped a copy of the Holy Qur’an and hit it with a shoe,” the Saudi Gazette quoted an official as saying. “The death sentence was issued after his apostasy was proved.”

The timing of this is certainly embarrassing to the Saudi government, it occurs as Saudi Arabia’s prince Mohammed bin Nayef was visiting England at the time where talks about Saudi Arabia’s position on Muslim extremism were scheduled to take place. Yes, let’s talk about their changing record of sectarian religious violence, just as one of their courts engages in sectarian religious violence!

Worse, some suspect that the prince, who is almost certain to become king at some point, will support a religious hardline position and do away with basic human rights that have been hard-fought for in Saudi Arabia.  Of course, this makes me continue to wonder why these religious fundamentalist asshats are our “friends”.  They’ve certainly done nothing to earn it. Like most of our so-called allies, they are simply useful to us and therefore get favorable treatment by the United States, who simply looks the other way when the atrocities come, at least until it gets too absurd to ignore.  As far as I’m concerned, we shouldn’t be “friends” with any nation that doesn’t observe basic human rights and doesn’t follow certain international laws. That would mean that countries like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and even Israel would get their favored nation status yanked and I think that’s a very good thing.  If these nations are animals, they have no business cozying up to the United States.

So there goes another case of Muslim compassion.  Is anyone surprised?  The record is clear, this religion of peace is about as unpeaceable as you can get, that’s what puts them on Horror Show Tuesday.

 

Horror Show Tuesday: Marriage or Death

Islamic StateIn the western Iraqi province of Anbar, which is largely under ISIS control, Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights reports that at least 150 women have been murdered in cold blood for refusing to convert to a specific version of Islam and marry Islamic State fighters. According to a statement released by the Ministry, “at least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage.”  Iraqi military forces, backed by local tribal fighters, successfully carried out attacks on the ISIS patrols, killing nine and capturing another seven.  One suicide bomber was killed and his bomb vest caused no damage.

But yeah, this has nothing to do with religion, right?

Unfortunately, there are so many stories of this, I made April a month long expose of radical Muslim horrors and I still had to convert the last week of February into another laundry list of Muslim bloody terror.  Still, with all of these stories recorded in black and white (and a lot of red), there are still a lot of liberals who refuse to acknowledge that Islam is actually a problem. They’re idiot accommodationists who will defend the religion to the death, so long as it isn’t their death, and proclaim that anyone who calls out Islam for it’s horrors must be a racist.

You know, I recently asked one of those ranting idiot liberals who claimed being against Islam was racist, how that could be since Islam isn’t a race.  He said that most people who were Muslims were Arab.  Well, no.  Actually, only about 20% of Muslims are Arab, the majority are Asian.  A large percentage are black.  There are Muslims of every race, therefore saying that Islam is shit isn’t racist.  He got mad and called me a name and wouldn’t talk to me anymore.  That seems typical.

Fuck the liberals.  Maybe they’d like to get shipped to the Middle East to explain to ISIS, or to Kenya to explain to Boko Haram, how religion has nothing whatsoever to do with anything they do.  No volunteers?  Thought not.

I don’t know how much more there is to add here, it’s same-old-same-old for the radical Islamic set here on Horror Show Tuesday.

 

Horror Show Tuesday: Is It Better If Someone Watches?

john-balyoIt’s not just the Catholics.  A Christian radio host in Grand Rapids, Michigan, has been convicted of sexual assault on an 11-year old boy and sentenced to 25 years or more in prison.  John Balyo, a Christian broadcaster, arranged with another man, Ronald Moser, to procure young boys for Balyo to have sex with. According to court documents, Moser would bring the boys to a local Fairfield Inn where Baylo would shower with the boy, take nude pictures of them and induce them to perform orally on him while Moser watched.  Is it better if someone else watches you abuse young boys?  The courts sentenced Balyo to the minimum sentence for sexual assault on minors – 25 years, but he faces additional time, up to 50 years total, when they consider other charges such as possession of child pornography and sexually exploiting a minor.  Moser will also face similar charges and faces up to 40 years in prison.

This is a really disturbing case.  They found that Balyo had a storage unit filled with child pornography and what has been described as a “rape kit”, which included bondage equipment that he reportedly used on the boys and a child-sized mannequin which he reportedly practiced on. He also had articles describing how to get away with distributing child pornography.  Prosecutors described him as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”, saying he fed a morbid sexual fascination with children.  Judge Robert Holmes Bell said during the sentencing, “I’m having a lot of trouble trying to reconcile two people in the orange jumpsuit before me. There’s the Christian man with a reputation as a value-driven individual. But there is something else going on that is troubling … filthy, obscene. I don’t get it. I don’t get where you went off.'”  At the time of his arrest, Balyo had just gotten married and his wife was pregnant, but upon his conviction, she’s left him and filed for divorce. He was arrested at a Christian music festival in Gaylord, Michigan.  Adios John, don’t drop the soap!

I wish I could say this stuff was rare but it’s not.  It isn’t a surprise that nobody is really surprised when we find that Christian holy rollers getting caught with their hands in the cookie jar, it’s far too common.  The more you profess religious piety, the more likely you are to be diddling kids under the table.  Such is the nature of religion.  Off to the hoosegow with you, John Baylo, hope you enjoy your time on Horror Show Tuesday.

Horror Show Tuesday: Abraham Redux

Kymberly Lucas
That’s because God isn’t real.

Something tells me she’s doing it wrong.  A woman in Florida, while reenacting the Biblical story of Abraham and Isaac, killed a 2-year old girl and attempted to kill her 10-year old brother and then failed to take her own life.  Kymberley Dawn Lucas, 40, of Jupiter, Florida, attended Metropolitan Community Church and the pastor there, Lea Brown, gave a sermon on Abraham and Isaac, citing God ordering Abraham to stop with the sacrifice at the last moment.

When Lucas went home and tried it on her own kids, and it’s really unclear whose kids they were, they were raised by Lucas and her long-time partner but I have no idea whose biological children they were or what their custodial status was, but when she tried it on 2-year old Elliana, apparently God never responded and told her to stop.  Figuring she did something wrong, she tried it again on her 10-year old brother Ethan.  Maybe she finally came to her senses, that God wasn’t going to talk to her, and realized that she was horribly, horribly wrong. Lucas left a suicide note, partially pictured to the right, and attempted to kill herself by overdosing on pills.  She did not succeed.  Ethan recovered and called 911 while Lucas was passed out on the floor.  She has been with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder and as of this writing, is still awaiting a trial date, but prosecutors are saying they will pursue the death penalty.  Good.

So yes, I acknowledge that this woman had some things wrong upstairs, but once again, religion gives the crazy a path to harming others.  The religious, of course, don’t want to see that.  According to Pastor Brown, “There is no comprehension, there’s no reasoning, there’s no answer as to why, it’s a horrible thing that’s happened, and as a minister of the gospel, the good news, my hope is that we will be God’s love to one another.”  Yet you preach horrific stories from the pulpit and those stories are responsible for a young girl’s death.  You’re not directly responsible, but indirectly?  Absolutely.

So more in the body bag in the name of religious insanity and a story for Horror Show Tuesday.  When will the horrors ever end?
