  • Home> U.S. Suit: Church Knowingly Let Abuser in Youth Program

    08/28/2014 3:00:45 PM PDT · 4 of 8
    Alex Murphy to Morgana
    Two 50-year-old men filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the Seventh-Day Adventist Church put a man known to abuse children in charge of its youth program in the 1970s and kept him in that position even after learning he was accused of abusing a child in its ranks.

    According to the story it sounds like the accusers have a strong case. But why isn't the abuser named as a defendant?

    The lawsuit contains photocopies of several indictments and convictions of the former youth program leader, who is not being named by The Associated Press because he is not a defendant in the lawsuit....

    ....The first indictments were in the late 1960s and others continued through the 1980s. The man was last released from prison in 2000....The man was the central figure in another suit in 2011 against the church that claimed he abused a man and the church did nothing.

    [RUSH}...Larry Sabato, who is the political scientist extraordinaire at the University of Virginia, alarmed many on the Republican side by saying (paraphrasing), "What wave? I don't see any evidence of a Republican wave election victory." Everybody's been talking about it under the assumption that things are so bad, that people are so fed up that they're gonna automatically vote for Republicans. That they'll keep the House. That they'll pick up enough seats in the Senate to control it and maybe even blow it out.

    And then Sabato came along yesterday and said, "What wave? I don't see any wave." And then that caused Jim Geraghty at The Campaign Spot at National Review Online -- it's a blog post -- Geraghty said, "Where's the polling data on these Senate races?" There isn't any polling data out there on these Senate races. No wonder nobody's talking about the wave. The media's not doing any polling data on all of these Democrat seats in the Senate that are vulnerable. There's no polling data. That's why there's no report of a wave; the media has stopped polling it.

    Why would they stop polling? Because they don't want to report the results. Why wouldn't they care about that? Why wouldn't they want to report the results? Because the results apparently would not advance the Democrat agenda. You see, polling is not anything related to news. Polling is the creation of news. Polling is all part of advancing the Democrat Party agenda. Polling is designed to either uplift the psychology of the public or to depress the psychology of the public, and in our case, most polling, there are exceptions, but most reports of poll results are designed to depress you.

    While it's a good point, why should anyone care if Republicans manage to win additional seats? What is needed is for more conservatives to win seats, not more Republicans.

    RUSH: Oh, is that why it took over a week, the guy didn't know who to call? CNN's probably walking by the house every day. How many media people were there? This guy is close enough to hear the shots, right? He and his computer are close enough for his computer to pick up the shots, and he can't find a media person. He doesn't know who to call. He doesn't know how to reach them. He apparently can't look out the window that picked up all these shots and see an army of media people out there. He didn't know what to do. So somehow the guy finds CNN....

    ....But now it's today, and it's a different day, and now CNN hosts (such as Michaela Pereira this morning) are asking, "Do you think it's authentic?" She asked two different law enforcement people, and both of those law enforcement people at CNN today think it was a hoax. But, you see, I don't know that CNN is really worried. They got what they wanted out of this yesterday.

    In medical terms, CNN suffers from "premature vociferation".

    The spiritual (but not religious) Mecca of modernity in the Catholic Church is the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, the headquarters of which would likely be a smoking ruin if we had a God quick to anger rather than slow. The absurdity of this very modern institution is embodied perfectly in their recent USCCB statement on their “Commitment To Dialogue With Muslims.”

    What is the bottom line? They are so committed to dialogue with Muslims, it seems, that they will persevere in useless dialogue until every last one of us Christians is dead.

    "I never forget the simple truth: all Protestants are Liberals."

    "By "all Protestants" do you mean any Christian not affiliated with the Catholic Church? "

    I wondered the same thing. The usual definition offered is that Protestant means "not Catholic and not Orthodox", which means we're actually getting this odd, frankly untenable argument:

    "Only Catholics are Conservatives".

    Ping to a thread from 2009, same parties discussing Catholic vs Protestant voting patterns as are discussing it today. We also heard on this 2009 thread that no "real" Catholics voted for Obama.

    There are 165 million Protestants and not all of them can or did vote. I’ll apply the same measuring stick to both: I’ll assume one-third did not or could not vote. If 42% of Protestants voted for Obama (according to PEW), that would be about 46,200,000. That means more than twice as many Protestants voted for Obama than did Catholics. Remember, Obama got 65 million votes.

    At this juncture, it would be helpful if you gave a definition of the term "Protestant".

    I have been in conservative Reformed churches for 20 years now. One thing that always strikes me is that we seem to have more special needs folks, per capita, in our congregations than any other church I have been a member of, visited, etc.

    Why? I am convinced it is for a couple of reasons.

    Our view on the sanctity of life


    Our view of the absolute sovereignty of God. The majority of churches will at least give lip service to this idea, but we really mean it. That gives a lot of comfort to parents in struggling with trying to understand why this happened. To know their special needs children are image bearers, just like other children, is a great source of comfort.

    Amen to that.

  • Taking Offense: An Enemy of Truth

    Alex Murphy to Gamecock; metmom; daniel1212; BlueDragon
    Taking offense certifies the modern man as one who cares. If we take offense on behalf of another, we can number ourselves among the sensitive and loving. If we take offense personally, we can brandish a stop sign declaring to all that the offense must cease. In either case, the offending words must stop and the conversation must end.

    I am reminded of a post made about six years ago, in which a Catholic FReeper stated his (her?) opinion that "the commandment to turn another cheek applies when someone is attacking you. When someone is attacking Christ, His Saints, or His Church, we are to strike back because we love God and one another."

    The Upshot conducted an analysis of every county in the country to determine which were the toughest places to live, based on an index of six factors including income, education and life expectancy. Afterward, we heard from Hal Varian, the chief economist at Google, who suggested looking at how web searches differ on either end of our index. The results, based on a decade of search data, offer a portrait of the very different subjects that occupy the thoughts of richer America and poorer America....

    In the hardest places to live – which include large areas of Kentucky, Arkansas, Maine, New Mexico and Oregon – health problems, weight-loss diets, guns, video games and religion are all common search topics. The dark side of religion is of special interest: Antichrist has the second-highest correlation with the hardest places, and searches containing “hell” and “rapture” also make the top 10....The terms on these lists are relatively common subjects for web searches in one kind of place — and rarely a subject in the other.

    In the easiest places to live, the Canon Elph and other digital cameras dominate the top of the correlation list. Apparently, people in places where life seems good, including Nebraska, Iowa, Wyoming and much of the large metropolitan areas of the Northeast and West Coast, want to record their lives in images.

    I honestly don’t believe many low functioning people require the standard “forgiveness.” They are as innocent as babies as far as I can tell, more so in some cases...they aren’t restricted by infant bodies. Just my thought. It won’t hurt my theology either way.

    IMO our theology "predicts" the type of place we make for the mentally disabled among us. As a Calvinist, I believe in Total Depravity, which is to say that every single part of a man has been touched by sin. We sin because we are sinners; if we say that someone does not sin, we are saying that they are not a sinner. David says that he had been a sinner even in his mother's womb (Psalm 51:5). IMO there are no "innocents" of any age that have never sinned.

    There is no corner of creation that has not fallen. To believe this would mean some have no need of the mercy and forgiveness of Christ. Or, as I argued in my previous post, that to believe so is to pronounce that some have a need but due to their infirmities, they do not need to be told of / cannot respond to the grace and mercy and healing of Christ's blood.

    I had no idea! Thank you so much!

    It's a topic that has fascinated me for several decades, specifically the question "how does a 'low-functioning' person receive God's forgiveness and grace, if they cannot confess with their lips?"

    The came-at-it-sideways answer that I found to that question came from Matthew 5:22b:

    ...whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire
    Why is calling someone a "fool" worse than insulting them? Why would the name-caller be liable to Hell, for what appears to be just another insult? As I explored the verse, I found that accusing someone of being a fool was to pronounce them incapable of being regenerate and incapable of making good decisions. In other words, calling someone a "fool" was making an eternal judgment against them: declaring that there is some minimum physical/mental condition that a person must possess and exercise in order to be forgiven/saved.

    Chew on that for awhile, as it speaks directly to how we "normals" should conduct ministry and evangelism (and thus Corrie ten Boom's book).

    I am working toward starting a church specifically for the disabled. I just started another thread so I need to keep checking that one, but I’m going to come back to this discussion when I can.

    If you weren't aware of it before, I highly recommend Corrie Ten Boom's short book on that very subject, Common Sense Not Needed. She also mentions it in her book The Hiding Place

    "Your other activities, Miss ten Boom. What would you like to tell me about them?"
    "Other activities? Oh, you mean - you want to know about my church for mentally retarded people!" and I plunged into an eager account of my efforts at preaching to the feeble-minded.
    The lieutenant's eyebrows rose higher and higher. "What a waste of time and energy!" he exploded at last. "If you want converts, surely one normal person is worth all the half-wits in the world!"
    I stared into the man's intelligent blue-gray eyes: true National-Socialist philosophy I thought, tulip bed or no. And then to my astonishment I heard my own voice saying boldy, "May I tell you the truth, Lieutenant Rahms?"
    "This hearing, Miss ten Boom, is predicated on the assumption that you will do me that honor."
    "The truth, sir," I said, swallowing, "is that God's viewpoint is sometimes different from ours - so different that we could not even guess at it unless He had given us a Book which tells us such things."
    I knew it was madness to talk this way to a Nazi officer. But he said nothing so I plunged ahead. "In the Bible I learn that God values us not for our strength or our brains but simply because He has made us. Who knows, in His eyes a half-wit may be worth more than a watchmaker. Or - a lieutenant."

    Alex Murphy to Kaslin
    Let’s define the terms:

    The church: The body of Christ – those regenerate, sanctified Christ followers who have sincerely called upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, King of the universe, Creator, soul saver and sole savior of mankind, and have been forgiven, redeemed and saved by grace. The church recognizes God’s holy word as infallible, unchanging and eternal. The terms “orthodox,” “conservative,” “fundamentalist” or “Religious Right” are sometimes used pejoratively by those outside the church (and at times from within) in an effort to undermine the church and water down the word of God. The church is hated by the world because the world first hated Christ and, as such, must suffer persecution.

    The false church: The body of self-identified Christians who may, or may not, have begun the process of sanctification through belief upon and acceptance of Christ. The false church either rejects the infallibility of scripture outright, or seeks to rationalize and radically “reform,” revise or reinterpret scripture to justify sin. False-church apostates are Olympic caliber mental and exegetical gymnasts who systemically call good that which the word of God calls evil. They imagine many paths to God and hold that the Holy-Spirit-inspired men used of God to record the Holy Scriptures were, truth be told, rather uninspired after all. Thus, our apostate friends attempt to satisfy their spiritual hunger with Christianity à la carte, taking that which is palatable and leaving behind those bitter morsels given to curb the carnal appetites. The false church is loved by the world and can be summed by its central doctrine, coined long ago by its founding father, which is this: “Did God really say?”

    Whether it be your closet or office desk, excess things in your surroundings can have a negative impact on your ability to focus and process information. That’s exactly what neuroscientists at Princeton University found when they looked at people’s task performance in an organized versus disorganized environment. The results of the study showed that physical clutter in your surroundings competes for your attention, resulting in decreased performance and increased stress.

    A team of UCLA researchers recently observed 32 Los Angeles families and found that all of the mothers’ stress hormones spiked during the time they spent dealing with their belongings. Similar to what multitasking does to your brain, physical clutter overloads your senses, making you feel stressed, and impairs your ability to think creatively.

At About 5:30 a.m., a town street sweeper saw it and alerted the Fairfield police who, in turn called in MTA police and a State Police bomb squad and helicopter to seal off nearby streets and investigate; this action also caused M-NR to suspend service. It took the investigators nearly three hourse to realize that the "suspicious object" was merely a homemade model of Bender -- a cardboard figure with a clock face and comical angry eyes and grin featured on the Comedy Central Show Futurama. The student had left the figure behind by accident and did not intend any harm.

    "History" is not an actor with a point of view and a direction. You cannot be on its "wrong" side. Progressives tend to believe that the world is evolving, through some unseen but inexorable force, toward greater peace, equality, prosperity and justice. The great task for a leader of the United States, Obama appears to believe, is to get out of history's way. That's why it's a good idea to reduce our army to its smallest size since 1940, and to reduce the Marines by 8 percent. According to the American Thinker, the Army chief of staff recently testified that due to cutbacks in training funds, 75 percent of our forces are not combat ready. Apparently that's OK, because according to the words of Martin Luther King Jr., which Obama had embroidered into the Oval Office rug, "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice."

    It doesn't bend towards justice. It bends towards judgment.
