Preacher swear's at women for cheating and wearing revealing clothes

Uh oh we all know what the bible says about women who have affairs, they must be burned alive

Angry residents demolished a preacher's home because they're fed-up of his public sermons accusing female neighbours of sleeping around.

But the man of God refuses to budge and has simply rebuilt it.
Philippi residents say the pastor regularly stands in the middle of the road and starts swearing at women in front of their young children accusing them of having affairs.

People finally had enough and demolished his shack on Monday but the persistent preacher rebuilt his shack on Tuesday.

A resident says the pastor is lucky people in his area have not tried to hurt him.

"He stands in the road and tells the women they cheat on their men and others sleep with their own children," he says.

"When they confront him, he tells them God shows him their infidelities in his dreams."

A 52-year-old woman, who asked not to be named, says the pastor followed her daughter and swore at her all the way to the shop.

"He told her she is a witch who always wears revealing clothing and she learned witchcraft from me," says the disgusted woman.

The pastor was unavailable for comment. - Daily Voice

Longtime Church member raped teen girl

For some reason, whatever Christians do is: 1) All the time in agreement with the holy spirit, and 2) All the time in agreement with the bible.

CONCORD, N.H. — Tina Anderson was a scared 15-year-old when she was summoned by church leaders to stand before her congregation and apologize for getting pregnant out of wedlock.

Just minutes earlier in that evening service in 1997, a longtime church member admitted publicly that he had been unfaithful to his wife.

Now, 13 years later, Ernie Willis is charged with raping Anderson, and police are investigating what church leaders knew about the assault and whether they shipped Anderson out of state to keep the matter quiet.

When the pastor heard Anderson's allegations, he told her that if she had "lived in the Old Testament," she would have been stoned to death for not reporting the attack sooner.

"He also said I had 'allowed myself to be put in a compromising situation,' Anderson said. The pastor decided she needed to be "church-disciplined."

"I was completely humiliated," Anderson said, her voice quavering at the memory. "I hoped it was a nightmare I'd wake up from, and it wouldn't be true anymore."

The Associated Press does not generally identify victims of sexual assault, but Anderson asked that her name be made public. Several witnesses to the church service involving Willis and Anderson recounted details to The Associated Press.

Willis, 51, of Guilford, will be arraigned June 16 on sexual assault charges. He was released on a $100,000 personal-recognizance bond after his arrest last week. A message left on a cell phone linked to him was not returned. A woman who answered the phone at a number listed to him said he no longer lived there. Court documents do not list an attorney.

Concord police also are weighing whether to bring obstruction-of-justice charges against anyone who may have concealed the girl's location during the initial investigation, which authorities say they were forced to shelve when there was no victim to testify.

After all these years, Anderson decided to come forward after she was contacted by a Concord police detective in February.

She told police she started baby-sitting for Ernie and Tammie Willis' children when she was 14. When she was 15, Willis volunteered to teach her to drive after her mother refused to do so.

During one of those driving sessions, she says, Willis pulled her into the back seat in a parking lot and assaulted her. The second attack occurred weeks later, when she said Willis came to her house, pushed her onto a couch and raped her again.

Anderson said she realized several months later that she was pregnant, and her mother took her to the pastor at Trinity Baptist Church for counseling.

This week, Pastor Chuck Phelps said he reported the accusation to police and child welfare authorities within a day of his conversation with Anderson and her mother. He would not discuss the church discipline session or his role in relocating her to Colorado to live with a family of another independent fundamentalist Baptist congregation.

Police refused to release any reports, citing the ongoing investigation.

Oh so they even further punish the girl by sending her to another fundamental Church?

Seven year old girl beaten to death for mispronouncing Bible

Please note Mathew 15:4 and Mark 7:10 are commandments from Jesus for Parents to kill their children if they're disobedient.

A Paradise couple accused of beating their 7-year-old adopted daughter to death will be in court this morning for a scheduled preliminary hearing.
Kevin and Elizabeth Schatz face one count of murder, one count of torture and one count of child abuse. The torture count alleges that the parents beat their 11-year-old adopted daughter so severely she ended up in the hospital with kidney failure. The child abuse charge is for bruising authorities reportedly found on the couple's 10-year-old biological son.

The Schatzes are parents to six biological children and three they adopted from Liberia about three years ago. Seven-year-old adopted daughter Lydia died of blunt force trauma in February. According to authorities, she was beaten for several hours with a quarter-inch plumbing supply line as her parents took turns holding her down and using the instrument. The blows reportedly cause Rhabdomyolysis, which is a breakdown of muscle tissue which fatally damaged her vital organs. The 11-year-old was allegedly beaten in a similar manner the previous night.

According to Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey, the parents appeared to be following the methods of Michael and Debi Pearl, founders of a controversial fundamentalist religious group, No Greater Joy Ministries.

They also wrote a controversial parenting book "To Train Up a Child." In their literature, the Pearls encourage parents to use a quarter-inch plumbing supply line (or other items like rulers, paddles or tree branches) as a "rod" to "train up" their children. Though they tell parents not to injure their children, they also encourage constant "switching" or "licks" for not only disobedience but also for things like spilling nuts or being foolish. Additional "licks" are recommended when the child cries out.
According to local authorities, Lydia's "biblical chastisement" leading to her death may have been for mispronouncing a word during a home-school reading lesson. The Schatzes entered not guilty pleas to all charges in March. Kevin Schatz will be represented by Defense Attorney Michael Harvey while Elizabeth Schatz will be represented by Defense Attorney Kevin Sears.

The preliminary hearing allows the judge to hear evidence against the defendants from the prosecutors and witnesses as well as arguments and cross examination from the defense attorneys. The judge then determines if the case will proceed to trial. According to Ramsey, however, it appears likely that the preliminary hearing will be waived today and the case will proceed.

Both defendants are being held in the Butte County Jail on bail of $2 million each. Both face two life terms in state prison if convicted.

Pastor jailed for sexually assaulting two girls

A self-styled pastor now serving five years in prison for the sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl was sentenced Monday to an additional nine months for abusing another girl.

Daniel Cormier, 58, was convicted of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl who was a parishioner and volunteer at the now defunct Église du Centre-Ville (Church of Downtown Montreal) — a church which catered to the drug-addicted and downtrodden.

Cormier will serve the sentence after completing the five year term he received in January 2009 for the sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl he claimed he had married.

Both girls turned to Cormier’s church when they were having problems at home.

Cormier became a sort of parental figure in the lives of the girls and frequently stayed and vacationed with him, said members of the church.

The teenage girl viewed Cormier as a sort of “guru,” said Crown prosecutor Anne Gauvin.

Cormier’s actions were persistant and planned exploitation, noted Quebec Court judge Claude Leblond in his sentencing.

Cormier did not express any remorse in either case and did not testify Monday.

The sexual assaults occurred sporadically between 1993 and 1996. In the first case, which pre-dated the assaults on the 16-year-old, Cormier insisted he was innocent and his 10-year-old victim was in love with him

Women sue Pastor for raping them

This article is actually a few years old. We don't put up old articles often, but the abuse of women in Christianity needs attention (by the way, you can find hundreds of them).

Four women who claim they were sexually assaulted by their pastor are suing Christian Gospel Temple in Cross Plains, Tennessee for allowing the assaults to continue.

Lynette Fay, now 26, says that Reverend Paul Mears "basically raped me on a daily basis" when she was between the ages of 4 and 12. She believes that church leader Cornelius Mears, the brother of her alleged assailant, knew and did nothing to stop it.

Crystal Mears, says that Paul Mears, who is her grandfather, raped her when she was eight and told her, "God will condemn your soul if you ever speak a word of this to anyone."
The women charge that the temple is a cult which controls the smallest details of its members' lives. It was originally located in Chino, California, but in 1993 Cornelius Mears told the congregation they were moving to Tennessee, and hundreds of his followers gave up their jobs and followed him.

The current pastor has released a statement saying, "We believe the allegations against the Christian Gospel Temple are not correct or true."

I'd like to know where the article found the word "cult" from the ladies? Most likely other versions of this storey didn't include "cult".

Female Muslim dubbed as "leading scholar"

She certainly know her stuff. Sadly we're still waiting for something positive about Christian women.

Sexual graphic in the Bible is inapropriate for children

Quite long and VERY informative.

Almost everything we think we know about the Bible and sex is wrong.

Instead of being a list of sexual shalt-nots, the Bible contains so much graphic eroticism that parents may want to keep the sacred text away from youth under age 18.

Indeed, that’s what 2,000 Hong Kong residents tried to do in May when they called on a Chinese decency commission to restrict the Bible to adults only because it contains passages that seem to give the okay to incest, rape, adultery and a father offering his daughters to strangers for sexual gratification.

The Bible — which has been the foundation for much of the world’s sex-related laws — is actually, it seems, quite erotic, and surprisingly soft on things like prostitution and polygamy.

And even though some Bible passages criticize homoeroticism, others non-judgmentally describe prominent men loving other men in a sensual way. The Bible, as well, frequently employs sexual communion as a metaphor for how humans can passionately relate to God.

As if that’s not enough to shatter prim and proper stereotypes, the Bible contains sections such as the Songs of Songs, which highlight sensual delight in ways that could snap open the eyes of unwary adults, let alone children.

Even though the protesting Hong Kong residents were trying to make a wry point about the dangers of Chinese government censorship, The Song of Songs from the Hebrew Bible (which Christians call the Old Testament) is, really, quite hot. It makes 38 metaphorical references to male and female genitals and includes several cheery accounts of oral sex. It does not mention God once.

For good and ill, what we think the Bible says about sex matters a great deal.

In the U.S., the Bible and sex is at the root of the politically manipulated “culture wars.” Canadian laws on everything from marriage to abortion were, until recently, governed by how people read the Bible.

What the Bible says about homosexuality continues to divide the worldwide Christian church — with Canadian Anglicans next week taking on the thorny topic in Winnipeg at their once-every-three years General Synod.

Those include the Bible’s wonderful sexual euphemisms — in which genitals are described as “feet,” “thighs,” “mandrakes,” “pomegranates” and “hanging fruit.” Meanwhile, the most common euphemisms for intercourse are “to enter,” “to lie with,” “to know” and “to go into.”

Despite the emphasis some Christian and, to a lesser extent, Jewish leaders, have placed on the Bible’s apparent denunciations of some kinds of sex, such passages are few and far between — and even then often contradictory.

The Bible sends no message, or mixed messages, about divorce, adultery, masturbation, abortion, celibacy, sexual abstinence, homosexual relations and even sex with slaves, says Hornsby, who could be described as a moderate-to-liberal Bible scholar.

It should come as no surprise that some scholars will disagree with some of Hornsby’s historical contextualizing, but that’s the name of the game in Bible study. It’s all about interpretation, formally known as hermenuetics.

Masturbation? There is no prohibition against it in the Bible, Hornsby says. The famous Genesis story of Onan, for instance, has nothing to do with masturbation being bad.

It’s about a royal man engaging in coitus interruptus to shirk his procreative duties to his deceased husband’s wife, so that his own son would inherit riches. Meanwhile, the song of Songs 5:2-6, includes a self-pleasuring female erotic fantasy that may knock your socks off.

Abortion? The issue that makes or breaks political elections in dozens of countries? There is no specific word for abortion in the Bible, Hornsby says.

It is equally difficult, she maintains, to determine any clearcut message from the Bible about the touchy subject of birth control.

Polygamy comes out oddly — since a lot of Bible heroes, including Abraham, Jacob and David, had multiple wives and no one seems to care.

There are, as well, no Biblical words for “husband” or “wife,” unless you consider “master” a synonym for husband.

Actually, master would be a fitting description, because in Biblical times women were considered property, like sheep. In such a context, female adultery was ranked as theft

Sexually enslaved for 25 years

Many call the ministry a "cult", but that's because they are a violent bunch. If this was Islam, Christians would be glad.

The authors portray this is anti Christian yet they wouldn't give a damn if this was by Muslims.

Christian woman attacked by husband for speaking "highly" of women

See the woman isn't all that right. While it is true women are equal and have rights and whatever, but in Christianity that isn't the case.

Juanita Bynum, a preacher whose fiery and frank sermons about women’s empowerment have won her a national following, was attacked by her husband in the parking lot of an Atlanta hotel early Wednesday morning, police said.

Bynum, whose ministry is based in Waycross, and her estranged husband, Thomas W. Weeks III, had met up at Renaissance Concourse Hotel near Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to try to reconcile, Atlanta police said.

But while at the parking lot about 4 a.m., the two got into a physical fight until a bellman at the hotel pulled Bynum’s husband off her, Officer Ronald Campbell said.

She was bruised up and battered,” Campbell said. “She had purple bruising around her neck and upper torso.”

The husband, who is also a preacher, left the scene. No charges have been filed against him, according to police.

Police found out about the fray from a staff member at Piedmont Hospital, where Bynum was taken for a checkup. She could not be reached Wednesday night.

A popular Pentecostal evangelist, Bynum lives in Hempstead, N.Y., but her administrative offices are in Waycross. She is open about her past, freely talking about sex and being on welfare, hospitalized with a mental breakdown, divorced and spiritually broken.

Once a homemaker, a hairdresser and a flight attendant, Bynum’s big break came when Bishop T.D. Jakes invited her to speak at one of his conferences several years ago. Her ministry took off a couple of years later after she gave her unrehearsed “No More Sheets” sermon on breaking free of sexual promiscuity at a singles event.

Young Muslim woman becomes Mosque leader, and Christian women....

An article about a 24 years old Muslim woman who is a leader at a Mosque. It's nicely written with interviews with some other Muslim women like Mona Siddiqui, a professor of Islamic studies.
The point is Muslim women throughout history have held high positions of power. Today that isn't much the case as most muslim countries have become christianized (and in christianity women are forbidden from power) and run by uneducated radicals.
And Christian women, well they're banned from speaking in Churches so what make sone think they can lead the church? Also in 1 Timothy 2:12,

I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.

The reason we say "christianized" to muslim countries is because they've adopted this, and ditched the Quran and hadith.

Some quotes from the Muslim woman here in the artcile :

The mosque is a cultural center as much as a house of worship. "This is a traditional model of Islam. It's not new," she said. "We are going back to the roots. There is only one Islam."

She corrects the media how there is no such thing as "radical" islam, or "moderate" islam. May Allah bless this woman and all like her.

It also invites Muslims of all views, even sympathizers with the "jihadists," or radicals. "We don't discriminate," said El Ksaihi. "You have to let everyone in, regardless of their views. You can only help someone if you understand their views."

It's good to see women trying to correct haters. Say, I wonder what Pam Geller and Rob Spencer would say about this? Probably come up with more excuses to suit their fans like how maybe she was oppressed and gets beat by her husband. They come up with psychopathic ideas like these and their work is all the evidence we need.

An oppressed, silent and submissive barbie doll

I laughed when Christians started attacking Islam after a "Burka Barbie" was released.
So how about a Christian barbie doll? What's the reaction to this? Nothing.
And we all know what this means, Christian women are toys.

With her careers as veterinarian, astronaut and U.S. president behind her, Barbie has at last found her true calling: as a second-career Episcopal priest.

The 11.5-inch-tall fictional graduate of Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, Calif., has donned a cassock and surplice and is rector at St. Barbara’s-by-the-Sea in (where else?) Malibu, Calif.

She arrived at the church fully accessorized, as is Barbie’s custom. Her impeccably tailored ecclesiastical vestments include various colored chasubles (the sleeveless vestments worn at Mass) for every liturgical season, black clergy shirt with white collar, neat skirt and heels, a laptop with prepared sermon and a miniature, genuine Bible.

Evangelist convicted for killing wife, storing her body in freezer and sexually abusing teens

MOBILE, Ala. - An Alabama evangelist preacher and former paratrooper was convicted Friday of murdering his wife and storing her body in a freezer for four years.

After deliberating for 1½ hours, a jury in Mobile also found 39-year-old Anthony Hopkins guilty of rape, sodomy, incest and sexual abuse of a child between the ages of 12 and 16.

Hopkins was arrested in 2008 while preaching at a rural revival on charges that he killed 36-year-old Arletha Hopkins, a mother of eight.

He showed no reaction on Friday as deputies handcuffed him and led him from the court.

Children who grew up in his home and who had testified against him stood in the front row and hugged each other and cried as the verdict was read.

"There is nothing pleasing about any of this, it is all very disturbing," Ashley Rich, the prosecuting attorney said. "A number of children have been harmed and the chances of them fully recovering are slim."

Authorities said a teenage relative who Hopkins had abused and impregnated led police to the body of his wife in 2008.

Investigators say Hopkins killed his wife in a violent fight in 2004 after she caught him having sex with the teenager. They said he then stuffed the wife's body into a freezer at the home he shared with her, the couple's six children and two of her children from a previous relationship.

In closing arguments Friday, Assistant District Attorney Jill Phillips said Hopkins terrorized his wife and young children, isolated them and used the Bible to manipulate them.

"He was the supreme commander of his own little army," Phillips said.

Hopkins told jurors Friday that he came home on a December evening in 2004 and found his wife dead on the floor, with the youngest of her eight children, an infant, beside her.

"I was shocked and I began to shake her, and I was like 'Letha, Letha are you alright?' I began to shake her, tilt her head back and do CPR," Hopkins testified.

Hopkins served in the U.S. Army in Kazakhstan in the late 1990s and earned a medal for his service. He was arrested in 1998 for being absent without leave from the Army in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, from June 15, 1995, until April 6, 1998.

He testified Friday that he decided to leave the Army after he got orders to serve in Korea and could not take his family with him.

29 explicit verses and stories in the Bible about women

1.Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there an harlot, and went in unto her. [Judges 16:1]

2.And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. [Genesis 19:33-36]

[Genesis 38:8-9]

6.When Judah saw her, he thought her to be an harlot; because she had covered her face. And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law.) And she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me? And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said, Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it? And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she said, Thy signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him. [Genesis 38:15-18]

7.And when she had brought them unto him to eat, he took hold of her, and said unto her, Come lie with me, my sister.

And I, whither shall I cause my shame to go? and as for thee, thou shalt be as one of the fools in Israel. Now therefore, I pray thee, speak unto the king; for he will not withhold me from thee.

Thus she committed her whoredoms with them, with all them that were the chosen men of Assyria, and with all on whom she doted: with all their idols she defiled herself. Neither left she her whoredoms brought from Egypt: for in her youth they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity, and poured their whoredom upon her. [Ezekiel 23:5-8]

12.And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms. She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men. Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way, And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with vermilion, Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity: And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she doted upon them, and sent messengers unto them into Chaldea. And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom, and she was polluted with them, and her mind was alienated from them. So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness: then my mind was alienated from her, like as my mind was alienated from her sister. Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt. For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses. Thus thou calledst to remembrance the lewdness of thy youth, in bruising thy teats by the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth. [Ezekiel 23:11-21]

(She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.) So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows. Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee. I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt. I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey: He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed. With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; [Proverbs 7:7-22]

Dutch Christian Party bans women

AMSTERDAM – A fundamentalist Christian political party led entirely by men was told by the Netherlands' Supreme Court on Friday that it must accept women in leadership roles.

The Political Reformed Party, known by its Dutch acronym SGP, has consistently held two or three seats in the country's 150-member national parliament since the 1920s but has never had a female candidate at any level.

"People say it's only a small party, so why bother?" said Kathalijne Buitenweg, chair of the women's rights organization that brought the case challenging SGP policies.

"But can you imagine the outcry there would be in this country if a party with these principles had been organized by Muslims?"

The SGP, which says it draws its inspiration from the Bible, has argued that restricting leadership roles to men is justified by religious freedom.

"The constitutional right to freedom of religion does indeed give the party the right to express its opinions," said Judge Detmer Beukenhorst, reading a summary of the court's ruling in The Hague.

"But in a democratic country, political ideals and programs can only be carried out within the boundaries set by laws."

The ruling said the party's policies are in conflict with the 1979 U.N. Treaty for the Rights of Women and it instructed the Dutch government to take unspecified measures to force the SGP to change.

Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin was quoted by Dutch paper De Volkskrant Friday as saying he hoped the SGP would "draw its own conclusions" from the ruling.

In a statement, the SGP criticized the ruling as "incomprehensible" and said it would have no immediate effect.

"The SGP knows that it is dependent on God in all circumstances and will go on no less strongly carrying out its mission," it said. "That is, bringing Biblical values into the governance and organization of the Netherlands."

It then unveiled its list of candidates for national elections in June — with no women among them.

The SGP draws most of its support from members of various conservative Calvinist churches, notably the Netherlands Reformed Congregations, in an area known as the Dutch Bible Belt.

Buitenweg said that in a way it was surprising the ruling is coming now, and not a generation earlier. But she said the government and many people have turned a blind eye to the SGP, rationalizing it as politically irrelevant.

In addition, most of the women in communities where the party is strong do not support modernization.

Now if we look over to the right side, women are clearly forbidden to take leadership or have authority over men.

Christian kills cousin over "skimpy" dress

Many Christians have asked me how I know these people were Christian. Well think about it, Easter is a Christian tradition celebrating how Jesus rose from the Dead. Now sure maybe some Atheists celebrate this, but Atheists are freethinkers, secular, and frankly don't care about a person's dress. I've a real hard time believing atheists would kill their kids over freakin short skirts.
Family gatherings are very common in Christianity. And they gather in a mature, professional manner which means being clothed decently. Are we all getting the picture?

COLUMBUS, Ohio - The sister of an Ohio woman killed during a fight that police say began over a skimpy Easter outfit says she can't explain what could have led to the shooting.

Ralinda Pickens says her sister, 19-year-old Danielle Pickens, always wore short skirts and shorts to family gatherings.

Columbus police say 42-year-old Evelyn Burgess shot Pickens Sunday night after an argument over jean shorts and a T-shirt the teen wore to Easter dinner.

Burgess is charged with one count of murder. She's Pickens' cousin.

Franklin County Municipal Court Judge William Pollitt set Burgess' bond at $500,000 during a court appearance Tuesday.

Pastor tortured wife for a decade

I'm quite shocked. This has to be one of the worst cases of domestic violence by any Christian (for pastor's and priests atelast)

A former pastor in Floyd County is arrested and charged with assault in what detectives call one of the worse cases of domestic violence they have seen.

37 year old Alonzo Bradley is accused of torturing his wife for years.

Wednesday afternoon Bradley's case was waived to a grand jury.

Police and domestic violence shelter directors say this case is an example of domestic violence increasing in the big sandy region.

In the past four years, domestic violence cases nearly doubled in this area.

37 year old Alonzo Bradley was arrested wearing a "Be Like Jesus" t-shirt.

Police say he used to be the pastor at the Freedom Pentecostal Church on Conley Fork in Floyd County; but detectives say behind closed doors he tortured his wife for a decade.

It's just a horrendous case. It's one of the worst assaults we've seen on a woman in a long time. Sadistic type injuries to this woman of beating with implements and using instruments to actually burn her with and so forth, so it's just a terrible situation,” trooper Mike Goble said.

The woman is now in a safe place.

Bradley's attorney did not want to comment.

This is just one of the hundreds of domestic violence cases in the Big Sandy Region.

Statistics from the Kentucky Domestic Violence Association show the region is one of the only places in Eastern Kentucky where cases have increased every year since 2006.

The Sandy Valley Abuse Shelter went from helping 93 people in '06 to 177 in 2009.

“I think the numbers have increased, especially with the economy, you know, things have been worse and our numbers have increased,” Elizabeth Fitch, Sandy Valley Abuse Center Program Coordinator.

Police say the case involving the former pastor shows alleged abuse is happening in all walks of life.

“It occurs in the richest of families to the very poorest of families,” Trooper Goble said.

It's all about power and control, it has nothing to do with your status in the community,” Elizabeth Fitch said.

Bradley is being held on a 250-thousand dollar bond. Police say more charges are pending

See women in Christianity are forbidden to divorce their husbands. They have to submit (ephesians 5:22, 5:24, 1 Peter 3:6 and numerous others) to whatever their husbands say. The inferior status of women in this faith is clearly shown and reflected.

All I can say is God help the helpless christian women, suffering and wanting out of their marriages and just the faith in general.

Christian man shoots wife to death

SEATTLE – Bail has been set at $5 million for a 42-year-old man accused of fatally shooting his wife during a counseling session at a church in Washington state.

Charles Parsons, of Lakewood, did not appear Thursday for his bail hearing in King County District Court. He is being held for investigation of homicide in the death Wednesday of his wife, 38-year-old Carol Parsons.

Court documents say the two were attending a counseling session at Calvary Lutheran Church in Federal Way when Parsons pulled out a pistol and shot his wife three times. The documents say Parsons then called police, placed the gun on the hood of his truck before officers arrived.

County prosecutors have until Monday to file charges.

Pastor beats woman infront of police

A Pastor who quarrelled with a woman and assaulted her in front of the Kade Police District Headquarters was on Thursday arraigned before the Kade District Magistrate's Court.

Herbert Adom Danquah, the Pastor, is charged with unlawfully assaulting Esther Frimpomaa.

In the dock with the Pastor was Linda Oforiwa, a seamstress and daughter of Frimpomaa, who was said to have gone to defend the mother and was charged with an act tending to disturb the peace.

Whereas the pastor pleaded guilty with explanation to the two counts, Oforiwa also pleaded guilty with explanation to the charged she faced.

However, the Magistrate, Mr Abdul Majid Iliasu, entered a plea of not guilty for them, granted bail of GH¢ 800 with one surety to the Pastor, while the seamstress had a GH¢ 600 bail with a surety.

Prosecuting, Police Inspector Francis Asare-Cobbina said Oforiwa was a seamstress at Boadua while Danquah was a Pastor of the Baptist Church in Kumasi .

He said Oforiwa's mother, Frimpomaa, had instituted a civil suit against the Pastor over a plot of land, which was pending before the Magistrate's court at Kade.

Inspector Asare-Cobbina said on December 16, last year, Frimpomaa and the Pastor accompanied by their followers appeared before the court over the issue and after the close of proceedings, the two parties exchanged insults.

On reaching the roadside just in front of the District Police Headquarters the Pastor hit Frimpomaa on the face with a fist which sent her sprawling on the ground.

He said Oforiwa, seeing that her mother had been knocked down, rushed to lift her up and in the process, a confrontation ensured between her and the pastor and they fought.

Inspector Asare-Cobbina said their action drew the attention of the police and other members of the public adding that the Police had no option but to arrest them.

Counsel for the Pastor, Mr Agyapong Baah, said the facts adduced by the prosecution were "chocked with inaccuracies" and that the trial would make that evident.

Mr A. Y. Nyarko-Adu, who said he was a friend of the Court, asked the court to discharge Oforiwa for she only went in to save the mother, which was legally right.

Pastor beats girl who reported sexual abuse

A former Elgin pastor found guilty Wednesday of spanking a girl with a piece of wood in his office admitted he wasn’t prepared for the task of counseling a child who claimed to have been sexually abused.

“The situation was over my head,” said Rev. Daryl Bujak, who avoided jail time when he was sentenced to 12 months of supervision. “I didn’t have the ability to deal with the situation I confronted.”

Bujak was found guilty of two counts of battery for spanking the 12-year-old during counseling sessions in 2005 at First Missionary Baptist Church in Elgin. He was accused…

Jewish militants threaten Israeli actress

Christianity and Judaism are sister religions.

Jewish militants warned Bar Refaeli not to marry American superstar Leonardo DiCaprio, according to a UK report.

Refaeli, 24, an Israeli, has come under fire in her homeland for alleged failure to honour her patriot duties, which include mandatory national service and paying taxes.

But a nationalist group named Lehava reportedly fears she will dilute her race if she weds DiCaprio. Lehava took to writing to the supermodel, stating: "It is not by chance you were born Jewish. Your grandmother and her grandmother did not dream one of their descendants would remove future generations from the Jewish people. Come to your senses. Don't marry Leonardo DiCaprio."

Reports have DiCaprio and Refaeli back together again after breaking up last year. They started dating in 2005.

Pastor abducts and kills his own wife

From last February. Interesting, the more i search for these christian-ignored news articles, the more I find.

MANILA, Philippines - A cellular phone subscriber identity module (SIM) card led to the arrest of an Adventist pastor in Cebu City for the abduction and killing of his wife, a radio report said early Friday.

Radio dzBB's Cebu affiliate reported that police arrested Leonardo Jastiva, pastor and president of International Missionary of the Seventh Day Adventists, for wife Judith's death.

Police said Jastiva faces parricide charges after they found in his possession the cell phone used by Judith's abductors supposedly to contact him.

Investigators also said the pastor appeared uneasy when they first interviewed him about his 39-year-old wife's abduction.

Earlier, Leonardo reported at least three men abducted his wife last Feb. 9.

Investigators said they noticed similarities in the “texting" styles of the pastor and the supposed kidnapper. - GMANews.TV

Pastor accused of sexual assault

This horrible news never stops. Remember the holy spirit guides ALL.

Head pastor of the Holy Fire Pentecostal Church at Goaso in the Brong Ahafo Region is under police investigations for sexually assaulting some women in his church.

Ogya Nyame, under the pretence of providing spiritual healing to his lady congregants, is said to have fondled their breasts and engaged in all kinds of sexual escapades with them to satisfy his libido.

Confirming the incident to Joy News, Nana Atta Poku, secretary to the Omanhene, said the pastor was invited to the traditional council to answer questions on the many sexual allegations made against him.

He said the horrifying stories told by the victims of the pastor’s alleged sexual acts informed their decision to draft in the police for further investigations.

In one of those stories, the wife of an elder of the church suffering from rashes on parts of her body including, her buttocks, was said to have sought spiritual fortification from the head pastor.

Ogya Nyame obliged and confined the victim to his house where the prayer was supposed to take place.

In the middle of the prayers, the pastor in his bid to “examine” the rashes allegedly removed his penis and attempted to penetrate the victim, Nana Poku narrated.

He said that appeared to be an attempted rape, which the council thought was criminal and decided to invite the police.

The Municipal Police Commander of the area Emmanuel Yirenkyi also confirmed the incident but said investigations were underway.

He also said the police are looking for some youth in the area who on a vandalized items in the church premises.

Meanwhile, the pastor has denied the allegations. He said they are intended to malign his integrity.

Pastor guilty of sexually assaulting/harassing 2 teen girls

Shane Garrett Horning, the 29-year-old former Santa Margarita Methodist Church youth pastor, was convicted today of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old female parishioner and sending sexual text messages to her 15-year-old female relative.

The San Jose resident pleaded guilty to four felony counts of oral copulation with a minor for his crimes against the then-16-year-old and one felony count of attempted oral copulation of a minor under 16 for the messages to the then-15-year-old.

Horning is expected to get a year in jail and five years probation at his Jan. 22 sentencing in Santa Ana.

While working at the Santa Margarita church, he had the 16-year-old come to his home several times between January 2005 and September 2006 to orally copulate him. He was 25 at the time. The girl did not report the sexual assault until this year, when Horning, who left the church in 2006 and moved to San Jose, sent explicit sexual text messages to the 15-year-old female, who is related to the first girl. Included were graphic statements about oral copulation. The 16-year-old informed her parents about the previous sex assault and the new text messages, and the authorities were called.

And at end of the article, there's a little something else:

Han, 21, of Fullerton, was convicted of having sex with a 15-year-old girl in the parking lot of Miracle Land Baptist Church in Cypress, where he was the youth pastor. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 24.

Campoverde, the 45-year-old pastor at Ministerio Cristo Vive church in Anaheim, was scheduled to have a pre-trial hearing today on various charges related this his allegedly having had improper contact with teen-age girls as young as 13. The cases stretch back to March 2004, and he met some of the girls through the church, prosecutors say.

Pastor has sex with his own daughters...To show them how to behave infront of their future husbands

A 54-year-old pastor of a church had sex with his daughters to educate them on how to 'behave for their husbands.' The girls were abused for nearly a decade when they were 13 and 15.

The man said that the abuse was not 'about fulfilling his sexual desires' but teaching 'as dictated in scripture.'

He was sentenced to eight and a half years for seven counts of incest.

There's a small sentence in the end of the link that says: Judge David Lovell stated, "misrepresentation of scripture...defied belief.....he had hypocritically betrayed his religious principles."

Uh huh. The 100+ articles on "Sex Crimes" we have, nearly all the Christian's believed it was correct to rape/sexually assault. BUT the REAL, IMPORTANT reason is: The holy spirit guides ALL.

The Bahamas- A Christian place where men can rape their wives

Oh yes and if we look at the demographics, in total the population is 95% Christian.

For all about rape in the bible, see here:

While the site is atheist, and I do not agree with some things, the point is about what is written in the bible.

Marital rape law 'is a human right'

A POWERFUL human rights group has thrown its weight behind the government's plan to outlaw marital rape in the Bahamas.

Amnesty International has vowed to back the proposed amendment of the Sexual Offences Act in order to protect the rights of every Bahamian woman.

A spokesman for the group told The Tribune: "Amnesty International would certainly support that law being passed.

"We view women's rights as a human right. If there is abuse in any kind of relationship, whether it is within a marriage or with unmarried couples, or in the case of incest, all of those are matters that need to be dealt with properly within the law.

"On the basic stance of the law, Amnesty would support the way it's written to support persons rights."

The amendment, introduced to the House of Assembly by Minister of State for Social Development Loretta Butler-Turner last month, has sparked a heated national debate on the issue.

In Parliament last month, Mrs Butler-Turner noted that the current law is outdated adding that spousal rape had long been outlawed in many other countries.

American law recognised marital rape as a crime in 1976 but it is still a sensitive issue as many states have lesser penalties for persons convicted of the offence, compared to acquaintance rape or that of a stranger.

The present law in the Bahamas defines rape as an act of any person not under 14 years of age having sex with another person who is not his spouse without the consent of that other person; without consent that had been extorted by threats or fear of bodily harm; with consent obtained by impersonating the spouse of the other person; or with consent obtained by false and fraudulent representations as to the nature and quality of the act.

The proposed amendment would omit the words "who is not his spouse" in essence making it illegal for any person to have sex with another without consent -- regardless if they are married or not.

Under the current law, rape can only occur in a marriage if the couple is legally separated.

Some local religious leaders have argued that a man cannot rape his wife claiming the Bible dictates that a wife must physically submit to her husband.

Controversial pastor Cedric Moss has vocally opposed the legislation claiming the amendment would create a "society of rapists." Citing the "word of God", Mr Moss argued that rape cannot be committed in marriage because the couple gave each other authority over the other's body and agreed to open-ended sexual consent in the marriage contract.

He argued that including spouses as potential rapists would contradict the sacrament of marriage.

"But can it be right to bring married people under such a law designed for unmarried people? No, and a thousand times, no! It is not right and it can never be right to bring all married couples under this definition of rape whereby moment by moment consent is required for every stage of every act of sexual intercourse.

"Each day you will be a potential rapist in your own home if you initiate sex with your wife without her consent," he told the Rotary Club of West Nassau earlier this month.

Other opponents believe the proposed change will devastate marriages and families in this country and say more discussion is needed before the amendment is signed into law.

Women's rights advocates hit back saying rape is rape and that a wife should have the right to tell her husband "No" to sex in order to defend herself from an abusive or promiscuous husband.

In its 2008 Human Rights Reports on the Bahamas, the United Nations noted that while rape is considered illegal in this country the current law does not address spousal rape.

"Violence against women continued to be a serious, widespread problem. The law prohibits domestic violence, and the government generally enforced the law. However, domestic violence laws do not provide penalties separate from other crimes of assault and battery and do not

effectively criminalize sexual violence within a marriage," said the report.

The report said that the RBPF dealt with 114 reported rapes last year, a decrease from 136 in 2007.

Pastor molests 15 year old girl

A Boynton Beach pastor was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on Thursday after he was accused of molesting a girl in 2007, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Dieugrand Jacques, 39, of Lake Worth, was charged with lewd or lascivious molestation. He is the pastor of the New Alliance Haitian Church in Boynton Beach.

His victim, a then 15-year-old Boynton Beach High school student, reported the incident to authorities on Aug. 21, 2008. A day prior, the victim and her boyfriend confronted Jacques, who denied the allegations.

Late Friday, Jacques was out of Palm Beach County Jail after posting $7,500 bail.

Assistant State Attorney Mary Ann Duggan had asked for $50,000, citing the seriousness of the allegation. She said Jacques had no previous arrests.

The alleged incident occurred on May 22, 2007, at the home of the pastor during a counseling session the girl sought after having problems with her boyfriend.

At the time, she had no concerns about going to his house because she assumed they would not be alone after Jacques told her he was going to pick up his wife and children. But the victim said she found herself alone with the pastor.

Jacques asked the girl about her sexual relationship with her boyfriend and asked her to sit on his lap and take off her pants.

He told her, "Don't worry. I do this to all of my girls," according to a Sheriff's Office report. The pastor then drove the girl home.

The victim told investigators that she had been trying to "deal with it and get over it and it hasn't been getting any better."

According to the report, investigators spoke to Jacques' wife, Yvrose Jacques, who said she was home when the victim visited and denied the allegations against her husband.

No deception was found in a voice stress test that Jacques took when asked about the molestation, according to the report.

Jacques, however, told investigators that he kissed the victim in front of her boyfriend to demonstrate what a "friendly kiss" was.

Another victim turned up, but the State Attorney's Office declined to prosecute lacking probable cause, Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said.

British Pastor: Women should be silent, Submissive to Husbands

Ephesians 5:24- Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit (i.e WORSHIP) to their husbands in everything.

Ephesians 5:22-Wives, submit to your husbands (i.e WORSHIP) as to the Lord.

Colossians 3:18- Wives, submit (i.e WORSHIP) to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 11:7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man

Church of England reverend Angus MacLeay issued a leaflet to churchgoers saying that women should not speak if questions could be answered by their husbands.

The leaflet, entitled The Role of Women in the Local Church, adds that wives should "submit to their husbands in everything."

It continues, "Wives are to submit to their husbands in everything in recognition of the fact that husbands are head of the family as Christ is head of the church.

"This is the way God has ordered their relationships with each other and Christian marriage cannot function well without it."

Dozens of women canceled their membership at St. Nicholas Church in Kent, England, where married MacLeay is rector after the leaflet was handed out.

Last Sunday, the curate at the same church delivered a medieval-style sermon called Marriage and Women, telling women to submit to their husbands to make marriage work.

Reverend Mark Oden, a married father-of-three, told the congregation, "We know marriage is not working.

"We only need to look at figures - one in four children has divorced parents. Wives, submit to your own husbands."

During the sermon, Rev. Oden also blamed "modern woman" for the high divorce rates in the U.K.

Yes, the ones who want to escape biblical teachings.

One female member of the church said she was "disgusted" by the sermon and will no longer be attending that church, adding, "How can they talk that way in the 21st Century?

"No wonder the church is losing touch if this is the kind of gobbledegook they want us to believe in.",2933,585762,00.html?test=latestnews

See the women complaining how this shouldn't exist in the 21st century, obviously she has no clue what the bible preaches. Not even those liberal christians, who try to work things around the biblical scripures, can say anything about this. Paul was very clear about women in christianity.

Preacher raped woman for a whole week

A "REMORSELESS" Wembley preacher who punished a woman by raping her on seven consecutive days was jailed on Friday.

Paul Robin Denton, 46, of Barn Hill, was handed a 12 year sentence after repeatedly abusing his 32-year-old victim in October 2007.

He was found guilty after a trial at Inner London Crown Court when jurors heard how the religious fanatic put the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, through “hell on earth”.

She told the court Denton believed women should be submissive to their husbands and to Jesus “because the scripture says so”.

When she challenged his views, Denton, who changed his name to Lord Denton, repeatedly punched her in the face, head-butted her, pulled out her hair, and raped her “day after day” as a punishment.

DC Jon Wedger said: “The level of abuse and the time period it has been spread over has had an overwhelming impact on the victim. Denton has shown no remorse for his actions even making her go through the ordeal of the trial.

“I hope knowing that he has been held accountable for his actions will go someway to helping his victim come to terms with what has happened and allow her to move forward with her life.

“She has shown incredible bravery throughout the criminal proceedings and I hope that strength continues as she rebuilds her life.”

He was arrested in February 2008 but while on bail he sneaked into his victim's house and stole her hat.

He then sent it back to her in an effort to intimidate her.

He was found guilty of seven counts of rape, four of assault and one of witness intimidation

Yes it is true, the New Testement, over and over (like ephesians 5:22, 1 peter 3:6, some other verses on corinthians etc), tells a wife's submission to her husband is that of equal to the submission of God.

Teen Girl attempted suicide for being raped by Pastor

CRESCENT — A pastor charged with sexually abusing children said his congregation is supporting him and he has no plans to leave the church.

Edwin House, 71, was charged last week in Logan County District Court with five counts of lewd molestation. House and his wife, Lovenia, 64, ran a foster home for 25 years. She is charged with child neglect.

Both were arrested at home Dec. 30 and were released on bail Dec. 31.

Edwin House is accused of sexually abusing two 14-year-old girls in his home. Lovenia House is accused of not doing enough to protect the children.

One of the girls attempted suicide in July by overdosing on pills, court affidavits state. She told counselors she was molested by Edwin House and was depressed. She said the abuse started when she was 7, with the latest incident occurring when she was 9.

She told investigators Edwin House laid on top of her while she was sleeping and put his hand down her shirt. He also put his hands on her chest while she was in his car, she reported.

The girl was removed from the home and taken into protective custody, court records show.

Lovenia House told investigators her husband touched the girl’s chest to teach her how boys might act if she continued to dress provocatively.

A female foster child who lived with the couple from November 2003 to December 2004 told investigators Edwin House would lay on top of her after he tucked her into bed at night.

HIV Positive Pastor charged with sexual abuse of a minor

A central Kentucky-based pastor has admitted to having unprotected sex with a 15-year-old and not disclosing his HIV-positive status to the minor, MSNBC reports.

According to the article, 47-year-old James H. Bell was arrested December 30 after going to the Shelby County Detention Center and telling police that he had sex with the juvenile “on multiple occasions” in 2007. An arrest citation says that the pastor of Refuge Temple Church of God in Christ never told the minor he was HIV positive.

Bell is charged with sexual abuse, wanton endangerment and third-degree sodomy. He remained in jail on Tuesday, January 6, on a $50,000 bond

Pastor charged with child molestation, and conspiracy to commit murder

Johnson County - A former youth pastor facing child molestation charges has now been charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Jonathan Hartman is accused of having sex with three teen girls at the Salvation Army Church in Greenwood. One of the girls came forward last year saying she was pregnant.

A Franklin judge entered a not guilty plea for Hartman Tuesday.

On Thursday, Johnson County prosecutor Brad Cooper formally charged Hartman with conspiracy to commit murder, a Class A felony.

Hartman is accused of approaching a fellow inmate and asking the inmate to kill the witnesses in the case against Hartman. The inmate told the Johnson County prosecutor's office, who informed the sheriff.

The new charges against Hartman follow a month-long investigation. Hartman is also accused of trying to arrange the killing of the child of one of the witnesses which Hartman believed to be his.

The prosecutor says Hartman allegedly arranged for a friend to release a gun to the co-conspirator inmate on his release. The gun was to be used in the killings and serve as a down payment for the killings. Hartman is also accused of offering to pay $50,000 to the co-conspirator upon completion of the killings.

Hartman remains in jail while he awaits trial on the sex misconduct cases. He's being held without bond in the Johnson County Jail.

Pastor charged for having a relationship with a 14 year old girl

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- A youth minister in Overland Park is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

Wayne Huston, 45, was charged with taking indecent liberties with a child. He was a youth pastor at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, but was recently let go.

The girl's mother told police that she found inappropriate text messages on her daughter's phone.

The pastor had been counseling the girl at her home.

"None of these incidents happened at this church. They did happen at the girl's house and at the man's house," Officer Jim Weaver said.

Neighbors said they were shocked to hear of the accusations against Huston.

"I just met him a month ago when he was helping push our car out of the snow, and he seemed like a really upstanding, nice guy. We were going to go give him a gift certificate to say thank you," one neighbor told KMBC.

Huston is only charged with crimes against one girl.

Pastor charged with sexual assault

And the trend of pastors raping/killing/abusing/assaulting never ends.

A South Jersey pastor was being held at the Camden County Jail tonight on $200,000 bail after being charged with sexually assaulting an under-aged girl, authorities said.

Gregor George Woodruff, 61, the pastor of the Ewan United Methodist Church in Mullica Hill, allegedly assaulted the girl "on numerous occasions" during the last two years, said Jason Laughlin, spokesman for the Camden County Prosecutor's office.

Woodruff, of Gloucester City, was arrested Friday at the Kennedy Health System Crisis Center and charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault, three counts of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, Laughlin said.

Laughlin said it was the policy of the prosecutor's office not to release any information that might identify the girl, including her age, hometown or how she knew Woodruff.

Anyone with information that might aid the investigation is asked to call Investigator Amy Pisano 856-225-8400 or Gloucester City detectives at 856-456-7797.

Pastor rapes his own daughter

Absolutely disgusting.

WILLIAMSON — A Mingo County elementary teacher, coach and pastor, waived his right to a preliminary hearing yesterday regarding charges of sexual abuse by a parent and incest.

Johnny Ray Dempsey was arrested on Friday, Jan. 22, by Mingo County Sheriff’s deputies for inappropriate contact with his 14-year-old juvenile daughter in June 2009, according to public records.

At the time of the crime, Dempsey was a teacher at Kermit K-8 and Tug Valley High School and a pastor at Grace Truth Bible Center, located at Boy Scout Hollow.

Dempsey was arraigned in Mingo County Magistrate Court and placed in the Southwestern Regional Jail on a $100,000 cash bond.

The case will now go to the Mingo County Grand Jury, who will decide if the case warrants an indictment.

Pastor rapes church member

JOHANNESBURG — A Zion Christian Church pastor who allegedly raped a woman churchgoer who came to him with her husband for help with marital problems, appeared in the Krugersdorp Magistrate’s Court yesterday, Johannesburg police said.

The pastor asked the husband to leave before he could “heal” the woman, Inspector Solomon Sibiya said, and then forced the complainant to the floor and raped her.

Pastor charged for abusing Wife

The pastor of a Houston-area church as been accused of domestic violence.

James Wallace Dixon, 47, is charged with assault on a family member, a misdemeanor.

Dixon, who is pastor at Community of Faith Church in north Houston and was a Metro board member from 2004 to 2009, is free in on $50,000 bail.

Officials said the charge stems from an altercation Jan. 25 between Dixon and his estranged wife, whose name has not been released. The couple has been separated for about 9 months, officials said.

Investigators said that Dixon went to his wife's home in the 5000 block of Bridge Valley Drive to drop off the couple's children. His wife let him inside the home briefly but then asked him to leave.

Dixon allegedly pushed her, picked up their youngest child and went outside, officials said.

His wife followed and stood behind his car, apparently to to prevent Dixon from leaving. Officials said that Dixon allegedly grabbed the woman and threw her inside the house.

Bill Miller, a spokesman for Dixon, released a statement Thursday evening.

"Reverend Dixon believes very strongly in our criminal justice system. Until this case is resolved, he wishes to thank all of his friends, family and church members for their prayers and support.

"Beyond that, the Dixon family requests that their privacy be respected and will have no further comment on this matter."

If convicted, Dixon faces up to a year in the Harris County jail and a maximum of a $4,000 fine.

Its official, pastor to serve 65 years for killing wife

WACO, Texas — Jurors on Thursday sentenced a former Texas minister to 65 years in prison for murdering his wife and trying to cover it up as a suicide.

Jurors deliberated for about two hours before agreeing on the sentence for 38-year-old Matt Baker. He had faced from probation to life in prison for slipping his wife sleeping pills and suffocating her in 2006.

The case almost never went to trial. Her death was deemed a suicide after a note and sleeping pills were found by the bed, and Baker said she was depressed over their 16-month-old daughter's cancer death in 1999. But authorities reopened the case several months later after her parents shared evidence obtained for their wrongful death lawsuit against Baker.

When the judge asked if there was any legal reason why he should not be sentenced, Baker said: "I truly believe in my innocence. I believe the jury made a mistake in this."

During closing arguments, prosecutor Crawford Long — who previously called Baker a "murdering minister" — said he killed his wife in "cold-blooded cruelty" and seemed to take pleasure in getting away with it.

"Folks, I can look every one of you in the eye and say Matt Baker deserves the maximum sentence, and Matt Baker, I can look you in the eye and say because of your heartless, soulless conduct, you do deserve a maximum sentence," Long said, glaring and pointing at Baker.

Defense attorney Harold Danford said Baker "did some things he's not proud of" but reminded jurors that Baker was eligible for probation because he had not previously been convicted of a felony. He urged jurors to consider Baker's entire life and activities such as youth mission trips and his work as a Baptist pastor.

Prosecutor Susan Shafer said Baker was dangerous because he still could fool people into believing he was a good person. She said the "best of Matt" was his two daughters, who were asleep in the house when he killed his wife.

"He thought no more of them than to murder their mother and then erase her legacy with them by convincing them that she didn't love them enough to stay and raise them, that she committed suicide," Shafer told jurors.

Baker, who did not testify during the trial, was convicted late Wednesday.

Kari's mother Linda Dulin told Baker that the family had decided to forgive him for the sake of the daughters.

"You took her from us Matt, you discarded her like she was yesterday's trash ... and you left so many other victims," Dulin said in her victim impact statement at sentencing.

"What you did was horrific ... and I believe you are capable of much more evil."

As deputies led him from the courtroom, Baker turned to his mother.

"Love you Mom," he said. "Take care of Kensi and Grace."

Jurors declined to comment after the trial.

Baker's attorney Guy James Gray had told jurors that he was on trial only because he lied about having an affair.

The state's key witness was his ex-mistress Vanessa Bulls, who told jurors that Baker slipped his wife the prescription sleep aid Ambien, handcuffed her to the bed under the guise of spicing up their marriage, and smothered her with a pillow after she fell asleep. Baker told Bulls he typed a suicide note and rubbed Kari's lifeless hand over it in case it was tested for fingerprints, she testified.

Then he called 911 and said he moved her to the floor, dressed her nude body and began doing CPR, but witnesses testified that was impossible in the few minutes before police arrived.

Baker told a police officer that Kari was fine before he left the house 45 minutes earlier to run errands, but in different media interviews said she was asleep or awake. He told the officer that the door from the garage to the house was locked and told others that the bedroom door was locked, witnesses testified.

Baker also searched numerous pharmaceutical Web sites and almost bought Ambien online, according to other testimony. Ambien was one of three drugs found in Kari Baker's body, according to the autopsy results.

Shortly after her death, he removed Kari's pictures and clothes and replaced them with photos of Bulls with his daughters, according to testimony. He also looked at engagement rings with Bulls.

During sentencing Thursday, four women testified that Baker had made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including one who complained to police of an attempted sexual assault.

Baker also used his church-issued laptop and a computer at a youth center to look at pornographic Web sites and those for married adults who want to have affairs, Noel Kersh, a computer forensics examiner, testified Thursday.

Several people who knew Baker as a child or teen called him a "good guy," and Sharon Rollins who grew up with him described him as charming and flirtatious, but that she "never took it as an advance."

Jeanne Lehrmann, a member of a Baptist church in Riesel where Baker was pastor several years ago, testified that he was a fine pastor.

"I truly felt that he is a man of God," Lehrmann said, adding that she still felt that way and did not believe much of the trial evidence.,2933,583599,00.html

Trial continues for preacher who killed Wife

WACO, Texas (CBS) Young, blonde, and beautiful, Vanessa Bulls, the 27-year-old former mistress of a minister on trial for killing his wife had one simple message for the jury: He did it.

Bulls is the star witness at the murder trial of her former lover, Matt Baker, the Texas preacher who prosecutors say drugged his wife, handcuffed her to the bed under the guise of spicing up their marriage, then smothered her with a pillow until she died in 2006.

Baker has always claimed his wife, Kari Baker, committed suicide because she was despondent over the death of a daughter seven years earlier. In court, however, Vanessa Bulls testified that Matt Baker planned his wife's murder and ruthlessly followed through.

Bulls began her testimony describing how she first met Matt Baker, who was applying for a job as preacher at the church she attended, in the fall of 2005. Bulls, who had a toddler and was getting a divorce at the time, said Baker seduced her under the guise of counseling her.

She said that in March of the following year, she began a sexual affair with Baker and soon after, he began planning his wife's murder. Baker considered tampering with the brakes on his wife's car or orchestrating a drive-by shooting, Ms. Bulls said, but eventually decided to kill his wife in a manner that would appear to be a suicide.

As Kari's family cried quietly in the courtroom, Bulls gave details she said Baker relayed to her one week after Kari's death. He told her, she says, that he bought chloroform online and attempted to purchase a powerful sleep medication known as Ambien. On the night of her death, Baker convinced his wife to take a pill that he said would enhance her sexual experience, but was, in fact, Bulls said, a capsule filled with a sleeping medication.

Baker told her that he handcuffed his wife to the bed until she fell asleep and then put a pillow over her face to suffocate her. Bulls told the court that after Baker thought his wife was dead, she moved and gasped for breath. Baker panicked, said Bulls, and again put the pillow over his wife's face until he was sure she was dead.

Vanessa Bulls knew Baker planned to kill his wife, she said, but never told anyone. She also said she lied to investigators for months, denying that she had an affair with Baker or that she knew anything about Kari Baker's death. She said she was afraid of Baker, especially after he emailed her lyrics to a song called "Dirty Little Secret." Bulls read to the jury the lyrics of the song's chorus: "I'll keep you, my dirty little secret. Don't tell anyone or you will just be another regret."

Under cross examination, Bulls admitted she had made various and contradicting statements to authorities.

Later in the afternoon, the prosecution rested. The defense case will begin Wednesday morning.

Pastor rapes woman after pouring "holy oil" into her private part

By Cyriacus Izuekwe

A 25-year-old victim of sexual abuse has narrated to a stunned Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court in Lagos how she was raped by her pastor, Emmanuel William, after he poured ‘holy oil’ into her vagina.

Beatrice Andrew accused the Pastor, a preacher with one of the new generation churches, of raping her in his house at Idimu in Lagos State under false pretence.

According to Beatrice, the supposed man of God approached her and told her that she had been possessed by some spirits.

The pastor was further said to have claimed that the spirits in Beatrice had prevented her from getting married at 25.

Pastor William was said to have asked the victim to come for deliverance in his house and added that Beatrice should come with a bottle of holy oil since the prayer and deliverance would take place at night. According to Beatrice, on getting to Pastor William’s house, he started praying for her and pretended to be casting out demons from her. In the process, he poured ‘holy oil’ into her vagina and forcefully had sex with her.

Realizing what had happened to her, Miss Beatrice reported the case at the Idimu Police Station and the self acclaimed pastor was arrested and charged with rape at the Magistrate’s Court, Ejigbo.

Part of the charge sheet read: “That you, Emmanuel William on 18 December, 2009 at same place and time did unlawfully had carnal knowledge of Beatrice Andrew while obtaining her consent by fraud.”

The pastor pleaded not guilty to the offence which is contrary to sections 357 and 360 of the criminal code cap 17 vol.2 laws of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2003.

He was subsequently granted bail by the trial magistrate, Mrs. Maimunat Folami, in the sum of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum.

The matter has been adjourned till 18 January, 2010, but the pastor was ordered to be remanded in prison custody since he could not meet the bail condition in good time.

Trial set for Pastor who murdered wife

by Loren Korn, Seth Kovar, and Zlatko Filipovic
WACO - The pre-trial of the former preacher accused of murdering his wife and trying to make it look like suicide was held Wednesday morning. Matt Baker showed up to hear whether a list of motions were granted or denied for the upcoming trial.

•One of Baker's attorneys, Guy James Gray, asked to be removed from the case because of "serious and material breach of conduct." He also claimed there has been a conflict between he and Baker. Nineteenth District Court Judge Ralph Strother denied the request.
•Motion for the defense to get a copy of Vanessa Bulls' grand jury testimony before the trial was denied. Bulls is Baker's alleged girlfriend from December 2006.
•Vanessa Bulls is granted immunity
•The defense plans to challenge Bulls' credibility because of conflicting stories between what she told police and what she testified before a grand jury
•Defense requested $1500 from the court to interview and talk with state expert witnesses. That request was granted.
•Judge reinstated the gag order over everyone involved in this case
•Start date for trial has been moved from January 11th to January 12th
•Defense will have access to a complete list of state expert witnesses
The McLennan County District Attorney's Office submitted a list of 97 potential witnesses for the upcoming trial. Matt Baker's mother and children are on the list along with Kari Baker's friends and family members.

Justice of the Peace Billy Martin and Reade Quinton were also subpoenaed. Quinton was the Dallas forensic scientist who was involved in Kari Baker's delayed autopsy. Several private investigators, Hewitt and Waco police officers, and crime scene forensic analysts were also subpoenaed.

Vanessa Bulls, Matt Baker's alleged girlfriend, was also subpoenaed. Police claim Baker made numerous phone calls to her just days before and after his wife's death. There's also an interesting request on the list: all e-mails Bulls and Baker had during the month of December in 2006 have also been subpoenaed.

Baker was originally arrested for his wife's murder and then had those charges dropped because the District Attorney's office didn't indict him within six months. But after a female acquaintance of the former pastor, Vanessa Bulls, testified before a McLennan County Grand Jury, Baker was arrested and then indicted for Kari Baker's murder.

Hewitt police found Kari's body in the Bakers' home in April of 2006. The death was originally ruled a suicide. But four months later, Justice of the Peace Billy Martin ordered her body exhumed and an autopsy performed at the urging of Kari Baker's parents, who insisted she was murdered. That autopsy showed traces of sleeping pills and medicine in her muscle tissues.

God "hates" Lady Gaga

Fans have a new reason to love Lady Gaga now that the notorious Westboro Baptist Church officially hates the singer.

The Kansas-based congregation, helmed by Rev. Fred Phelps and consisting largely of his offspring, announced plans Wednesday to picket Gaga's Jan. 7 show in St. Louis, calling the 'Bad Romance' star a "hussy" and a heathen for "seducing a generation."

A press release for the 'God Hates Lady Gaga' protest contains no mention of the church's signature issue, hatin' gays and such, but one can assume they don't approve of Gaga's bisexual leanings and tolerance of homosexuality.

Instead, the folks who shamefully protest funerals of fallen servicemen focus on Gaga's artistic merit. "There's nothing new or different about this particular hussy's pretentious prancing," the statement reads.

Further, Westboro implores Gaga's fans not to be seduced by her charms.

"Even as she gives lip service to 'liberating' her young fans, Lady Gaga brings them into slavery to their own corruption, teaching them to glory in their shame. She hates you!"

Reached for comment, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay tells PopEater that while he respects Westboro's right to protest Gaga, "this instance seems more like pop music criticism than political protest."

Ultimately Slay, who peppers his Twitter updates with pop culture references, says he isn't worried about any possible impact the protest will have on the occasion. "I hope her fans have fun and spend lots of money here. Other than that, there's 'Nothing Else I Can Say (eh eh).'" -- a nod to Gaga's track 'Eh Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say)'

In case you're itching to join the protest or any counter-protests, here's the info: Thursday, Jan. 7 from 6:30 - 7:30 pm outside the (fabulous!) Fox Theatre, 527 N. Grand Blvd., St. Louis MO.|canada-toshiba|dl2|link5|

Rifqa Barry is practicing Philippians 1:18

An article from last October I found on the Loonwatch site. We've seen Rifqa act up many times before and accusing Islam of this and that which reflects the views of the Pastor's (who publically stated they hate Islam) that took care of her.

Pastor Lorenz fired

ORLANDO -- A new audio tape has surfaced with explosive conversation between the Orlando pastor who took in runaway teen Rifqa Bary and his church board members.

During the 40-minute conversation, board members fired Pastor Blake Lorenz and his wife, Beverly.

Blake and Beverly Lorenz: “You’re not sorry! You guys are crazy. You guys are evil! You guys are the most evil people I’ve ever heard!”

Board members said the Lorenzes’ personal crusade to help Bary turned into a church matter, and legal lines were crossed.

Board Member: “We know the right and wrong way to do things legally, and you guys take it upon yourself to just go, ‘Oh, let’s just do it this way,’ and we find out you’ve done all this stuff illegally.”

Blake Lorenz: “We haven’t done anything illegally.

The pastor told News 13 he did not understand what the big deal was. He admitted to losing his cool, but said he did not do anything wrong.

“We did what anyone would do,” Lorenz said. “We never meant to mislead anyone. All we did was change the story to save somebody’s life.”

Lorenz admitted he lied to the media, but said he has always told authorities the truth.

News 13 also spoke with Shayan Elahi, the former attorney for Rifqa Bary’s father. He said the recording proves Lorenz was lying to a number of people all along.

“There’s all this evidence present at this point, and hopefully, authorities will do the right thing,” Elahi said.

Elahi told News 13 the truth isn’t something you tell to some and not to others.

“I was told a lie is a lie,” he said. “Lying to the media goes out to law enforcement as well, and lying is lying and even a pastor lying is a very disturbing thing right there," Elahi said.

Lorenz said he did not it that way at all, insisting that he lied to help save a life.

“As my daughter put it, Schindler in ‘Schindler’s List.’ Nobody’s attacking him for protecting people,” Lorenz said.

Lorenz maintained he made sure all his actions were perfectly legal, and sought legal advice before taking in Rifqa Bary.

Elahi told News 13 his client hopes criminal charges will be pursued against Lorenz, and if not, he would contemplate a civil suit.

Rifqa Barry calls herself a "Prophet of God"???

No, no Orlando Sentinel or whatever. No Fox News. No Pam Geller and definately no Robert Spencer.
This is a storey done by our great friends at LoonWatch. Its from Last September and can be viewed here:

Why I'm not going to debate Christians about Rifqa Barry/Islam on Facebook

So I got an email today, from a person (I do not know if they're muslim or not) asking me to debate Christians on a facebook group called "Saving Rifqa Barry". I actually didn't know there existed a group about Rifqa, because I searched for one before and couldn't find anything on her.
So anyways the group, as any other christian source of material, is attacking Islam left and right. But we all know Christians come up with the same tactics, excuses, and attempts, as if they completely ignore muslim answers (scoff). Though they don't have much on there.
Every member who's posted seems quite angry at Islam and at the same time experts. While the lame allegations which only make us slap our knees harder, due to the sensitivity, I won't go and refute them. Let them keep there momentum on bashing Islam (wierd they use the bible to defend themselves isn't it?).
I like how everyone praises eachother, like "Great Job brother" or "Amen" to anything anti islamic. Again we see the holy spirit guiding those who believe in Paul.

I don't want anyone to think that I've stopped to go onto anti-islam groups and refute christian myths and lies, but just not the one about Rifqa. I don't think christians will be able to handle the contradictions, and countless updates by Rifqa Barry.
For those who haven't seen the articles on Rifqa I wrote, please click onto the "Rifqa Barry" tab.

More new allegatations by Rifqa Barry

I've noticed when one embraces christianity, they'll often embrace ignorance as well (oh yes the Quran speaks on that by the way). After the amusing tales Riqfa has been telling the past few months, more keep popping up. Now lets look from this article:

"I don't have to live in fear of my dad (crying). I won't get hit," Bary told an FDLE agent.

Yet at the same time the FDLE found ZERO evidence of abuse. And let's look at the most laughable lie given by Rifqa:

Bary said she had to get away from a father who she said beat her.

"He actually just slammed me in the face with his hand to, to quiet me down. So things were like that were used to straighten me out," Bary said. “I remember my dad looking at me with such anger. He was just so angry and he socked me in the face with his hand. Just I, I my face was burning."

How can christians literally be rooting for this girl? Oh ya I forgot they're christian.

There's been quite a stir of who bought a bus ticket for Rifqa. No name came up and Pastor Lorenz said he couldn't say who got it for her, and this could mean he knows and doesn't want to tell, or just doesn't know at all (from and while reading this look over to the video of the pastor speaking. See how his christian tactics (referring to other muslim activities) is in their.

But if we look at the article i've posted about Rifqa getting "abused", a person named John Lew, who is part of the church orginization lorenz runs, bought the ticket for Rifqa to come to Florida.
In that same article Rifqa says she chose Florida due to its distance from Ohio. Probably another lie, the Lorenz's are located their. Isn't it obvious?

Shall we post yet ANOTHER lie of Rifqa Barry?

This girl is obviously mocking Islam. Its what happens when you become christian. Actually its a command by the holy spirit to spread myths, lies, rumours when you're a christian.

From this article:

"Imagine the honor in killing me ..." she said. "It's in the Koran."

Oh? Miss Barry where is that? Where is it in hadith? Did you know your new faith says that Jesus told parents to kill disobediant children? Thats honour killing but theres nothing like that in our holy texts.

And I'm crying with laughter that Robert Spencer, the "scholor" on islam gave 2 verses that say support the killing of apostates. Its in the article. All I'm gonna say is that stupid people do stupid things.
For mis-interpreted verses, see here:§ion=wel_islam&subsection=Misconceptions

Rifqa Barry's lies are showing

This is such a joke. Her testemony contradicts, the pastors who took her are haters of islam, the christian media is shoving this into muslims faces, self assured scholors Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller are having the times of their lives lying.

There is ZERO question she's lying. From the so called "beating" to being "forced to wear burka" (in another news feed she says her father punched her for not wearing hijab!!!). You know when one embraces chrisianity, he/she gets the christian package-lies and ignorance, all blessed by the devil to his son Paul.

An investigation is showing theirs NO evidence for Rifqa's claims. Of course christians are loving this fairy tale thats going on, anything that puts Islam in a negative way is heaven for them. Watch this:

Oh and did you know the lawyer representing Rifqa's parents is an EVANGECAL ATTORNEY? Lets see what he has to say:

"It will astonish many fellow conservatives as well as many on the left to learn that I, an evangelical Christian, have vigorously defended Rifqa Bary's mother in court. And I believe that my former client's cause is just."

So we have here the christian attorney saying Rifqa is the wrong one.

Lets read a comment from a poll about "Is the case of Fathima Rifqa Bary, the runaway teenage convert, getting too much attention?":

"This story has gotten the wrong kind of attention. The media, including the Dispatch, have engaged in sensationalist, biased coverage, making the story about supposed persecution of Christians, without examining the facts at all. In truth it is a private family matter and once it was determined the girl was safe that should have been the end of it. Once sensational lies with no foundation in fact were reported in a biased fashion that smeared the Muslim community in Columbus, then coverage was necessary to set the record straight. Columbus is clearly still a cow town where people operate on a narrow view of the world, totally out of touch with reality. Is shames us all."

Krista Bartholomew, the guardian for Rifqa in the court has this to say about the anti-islam christian media:

"It is absolutely not in the best interests of the child to have this paraded around in the media," said Krista Bartholomew, the attorney appointed as Rifqa's guardian ad litem to represent her best interests in court. Bartholomew spoke during a Sept. 3 court hearing in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court of Florida, proposing a gag order that was ultimately applied only to attorneys in the case.

"There are people who have made their own decisions and paraded this out," she said.

So even the ones defending Rifqa are fed up with the christian media.

Theres groups that are on faceboo, one for Rifqa, and one for her Father. I think we all know what the one for Rifqa would be like. "Lets take Quran verses and hadiths out of context to make us look smart! Oh and while at it, lets take pictures and videos, and maybe some news about women in afghanistan! All for the mighty holy spirit!"

The lying Pastor

So do you all remember Blake Lorenz? The new father of Riqfa Barry? This article says Blake is not "anti-islamic"-,0,6041010,full.story:

The accusations against them, Blake Lorenz said, aren't true. And they're not anti-Muslim.

"I'm pro-Jesus," he said. "And Jesus tells us to love everybody. I do my best to try to do that. And we're praying for her parents and for healing and reconciliation."

Okay but if i do recall Blake mentioned Islam is evil and is at war with christianity? Liar. Oh well its not surprising. He is a holy spirit guided christian.
Hmm and look what he says. He's praying for Riqfa and her parents for reconcilation? But isn't Blake the one fighting for Rifqa's custody? This whole fairy tale keeps on getting more ridiculous.

You know I'm noticing from the comments theres many people who agree with me on this issue. This storey is just simply not making any sense. One comment that struck me was by a person saying how many women die of domestic abuse in the christian nation America, but when a muslim women gets something done to her its automatically "islamic" or for "honour". Its the christian west that makes some muslims think the way they do (honour killing, whatever).
