The Religion Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Good point, but I'll stick with my quick toss guess. Maybe if he's just confessed to one Mormon (priest), but I don't see how all the committee can come under priestly confidentiality.

I'm gonna guess the wife is related to, or possibly still married to, Warren Jeffs and thus has an anarchist sort of attitude to child abuse.

(Admitted) Child Abuser's Wife Sues Mormon Church For Reporting Him To Police

https://www.yahoo.com/news/kristine-joh ... 39602.html

There should be a pool on how long it takes for this one to be tossed. :lol:
Not that I side with child abusers in any way, but I'm not so sure you're correct. It depends on the applicability of the “priest-penitent” privilege, whether mandatory reporting for pharmacists overrides it, whether there was a likelihood of further crimes which does override the “priest-penitent” privilege, and whether these issues were raised and settled when the husband plead guilty. She's not trying to free the asshole, she's trying to hold the church accountable for its alleged duties to parishioners.

Yeah, that occurred to me, too. We'll probably never hear about the resolution. The lurid part is that she's daring to sue, a settlement or whatever wisdom the courts apply not so much.

According to the limited article she was the one that forced him into Mormon counseling when she found out. Her argument, not that I agree with it, is that she did exactly what her church instructs and then got screwed by the church. In a fight between the Mormon Church and Mormons I say, "More popcorn!"
Speaking of Rudy, WTF?

Fair enough; but I wonder if their motivation is at all due to the fact that they themselves think of themselves as endangered species? They've been screeching and preaching for years that they are being "attacked" and otherwise are victims. They just can't seem to understand or accept that they are a minority that is getting smaller all the time in contemporary America.

I will vehemently resist any evangelical captive breeding and reintroduction program, though I might be okay with some remote protected habitat as long as the impact on normal people is not too great.

I know of one remote and protected habitat for this species; it's called The Cove and is in Montreat. I had to go there a few times to assess and give an estimate for various security systems the operators of the facility wanted to install. They seemed to be pretty protective or maybe paranoid of their enclave. They are probably still there agonizing over what to do.

For the good of both our species I think their need to be greater separation than that.

Well, hell, I may have to go to that "Uncommon Man" Retreat since I am one. Plus Tony Dungy and James Brown will be featured. I thought James Brown died quite some time ago. They must have brought him back for a limited engagement. I hope he performs "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" just to see how the administration reacts to it. And I think they're lying about being in Asheville; the place is way out past Black Mountain. I thought it was Montreat but it's hard to remember things when you're coming off drugs.

Baptist, of course.

Wait, wasn't the first rainbow symbology god's promise to Noah?
Why do the Baptist Christians at Whitefield Academy in Louisville hate god?
