Serbian Priest threatens female journalist

(IPI/IFEX) - Vienna, 2 February 2010 - The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO), an affiliate of the International Press Institute (IPI), strongly condemns the threat made by the Serbian Orthodox priest Bogdan Simanic against the Serbian journalist Aleksandra Delic, a correspondent for the Serbian newspaper Vecernje Novosti.

Delic was threatened on 1 February 2010 by Simanic over her critical reporting about the owners of Glas Podrinja. Simanic, who is a co-owner of the Serbian weekly, posed the threat by telephone when talking to another journalist, and said, translated into English: "You can tell her I will break her legs when I see her! She will remember who Priest Bogdan is."

SEEMO Secretary-General Oliver Vujovic said: "SEEMO strongly condemns the threat against Delic. As the Church plays an important role in moral development within society, SEEMO urges the Serbian Orthodox Priest Bogdan Simanic, as a Church representative and moreover as a co-owner of a weekly himself, to respect freedom of expression and opinion, and not to threaten journalists for exercising their right to freedom of speech." Vujovic added: "It is essential that journalists are able to report freely and without fear of intimidation or harassment so that they can carry out the vital activity of informing the public."

Priest rapes girl then threatens to murder her

Belthangady: A young woman has lodged a complaint with the Uppinangady police alleging that Jose Kichankeri, a parish priest in the Belthangady Bishop House had raped her after promising to marry her. The complainant has said that the priest has even threatened to kill her if she made the matter public.

It is learnt, the priest had been to the residence of the young woman at Enjira village on April 28 along with two sisters. But the sisters were sent back very soon. Despite the request of the young woman to the priest to leave the place, the priest stayed back and then reportedly developed physical relationship with her after promising to marry.

But, when there was no hint of the priest keeping up his words, the young woman intimated the Bishop House authorities. It is learnt, the Bishop had assured to get the woman married and had sought some time. But within a few days, the priest had once again come to her house and again raped her.

Georgian Pastor arrested for molesting four girls

Steven Rowe is accused of molesting 4 kids at a Douglas church and school; parents are asked to talk to daughters who might have had contact with him.

A former Coffee County pastor has been arrested and charged with four counts of child molestation and two counts of aggravated child molestation.

Investigators said Steven Rowe, 50, was pastor at First Community Church and headmaster at Faith Christian Academy in Douglas from 2002 until 2008. He is accused of molesting at least four children from 2005 to 2008, said Guy Wolfe, a Coffee County Sheriff's Office detective.

Rowe was questioned Friday after Wolfe said a complaint was filed with the Department of Family and Children Services. Rowe was held after questioning and charged Saturday. He remains in the Coffee County Jail after bail was denied.

Wolfe said the investigation is ongoing and he can't release many details, but he did say the victims were females. Investigators are asking parents to talk with their children if they were between the ages of 12 and 15 and attended the church or school while Rowe worked there.

"There's potentially other victims out there, so it's really sensitive," Wolfe said.

The church's interim pastor and headmaster at the academy, Ben Warren, said Rowe's arrest was briefly mentioned during Sunday's church services but the issue was not discussed in detail until parents gathered at the church Tuesday night.

"I've known Pastor Rowe for years. It's a shock to everybody," Warren said. "We tend to elevate the pastor. It's a major breach of trust."

Warren said parents were united in their support of the church and academy. He said Rowe's involvement with the church and academy had diminished the past 14 months because he was working at another school in Brunswick. Wolfe identified the school as Paxen Learning Corp.

Richard Semancik, executive vice president at Paxen, said Rowe is no longer an employee because of his arrest. Both Wolfe and Semancik said they don't believe Rowe had inappropriate contact with students at the center because they are all at least 16 years old, which is the age of consent in Georgia.

Warren said the issue will also be discussed with the 75 students enrolled at the academy.

"Most of our students did not know him that well," Warren said. "We're going to do some teaching with our girls and boys on how to react when something inappropriate happens."

Baptist Pastor arrested for sexually abusing seventeen year old girl

Prince William County police have arrested a former youth pastor on charges that he carried on a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl in his church group.

Jason Bolton, 32, of Dumfries, began a close friendship with the girl in September 2007, police said. By early 2010, the relationship had become romantic.

Bolton, a married man with two sons and a daughter, began as a youth pastor at Potomac Crest Baptist Church in 2007. He resigned in May after the sexual allegations came to light.

In a first person profile on the church's Web site, Bolton says he was called by Jesus Christ to serve at the church after ministering to students at the University of Delaware, where he studied art in the late 1990s.

“I am not perfect and I make mistakes every day,” Bolton says in the profile that has since been removed. “My hope is that through my life I can help show youth that Jesus Loves them and that He wants them so much that He died for them.”

Bolton was being held on a $3,000 secured bond on a charge of sodomy. A court date has not been set, officials said.

Pastor charged for killing his second wife, also being investigating for killing his first wife

TANNERSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Police say a former pastor from Pennsylvania killed his second wife and staged a car accident to cover it up, and authorities are now re-examining his first wife's death, too.

Sixty-two-year-old Arthur Burton Schirmer was arraigned Monday in Tannersville on a criminal homicide charge in the July 2008 death of 56-year-old Betty Schirmer.

Police say Arthur Schirmer claimed he got in an accident when a deer ran in front of his car, killing his wife.

Her death was initially ruled an accident. Police reopened the case after the husband of Arthur Schirmer's mistress committed suicide.

Investigators now say Betty Schirmer was already injured before the crash and that they found her blood in a parsonage garage.

Police are now re-examining the 1999 death of Schirmer's first wife.

Canadian Pastor arrested for indecent act towards woman

The senior pastor at a large Pentecostal church in St. John's did not know until this week that one of his pastors is facing a sex-related charge.

Pastor Geoffrey Whitt, who is assigned to Bethesda Pentecostal Church in the east end of St. John's, was charged in December with committing an indecent act.

Whitt has been the church's children's pastor since 2002, and also runs a music camp for children.

His lawyer, Jeff Brace, told CBC News that the charge does not involve children, and that the complainant is an adult woman who told police that Whitt had exposed himself.

The senior pastor at the church, Brian Brown, did not know about the charge until he was contacted by CBC News on Tuesday.

Brown said he was shaken and taken aback by the revelation, but said he could not comment further until he learned more about the details, and about how the church's leadership wishes to respond.

Whitt is employed by the Pentecostal Assemblies of Newfoundland and Labrador, which is now reviewing the case.

Whitt is scheduled to next appear in provincial court in St. John's in April.

British Pastor on trial for sex attack on a young girl

A CARMARTHENSHIRE pastor accused of indecently assaulting a young girl will stand trial in October.
David Protheroe Morris, of Llety Fforddolion, in Llanpumsaint, had his plea and case management hearing heard in Welsh yesterday when he appeared at Cardiff Crown Court.

Yesterday, Judge Philip Richards conducted the entire hearing in Welsh, save to speak to a court listings officer to request availability for a trial date in October.

Both the prosecuting and defence barristers also spoke in Welsh, while a Welsh-speaking court clerk sat in on the case.

Morris was granted bail on condition he does not contact prosecution witnesses directly or indirectly, or have contact with children aged under 16.

He will stand trial at Swansea Crown Court on October 4.

The bible says women are mentally deficient

A great article written by Bassan Zawadi, a writer at Answering Christianity. Here's his site, talking about how the bible totally degrades women:

Here is a verse from the New Testament talking about husbands and wives and the way they should treat each other...

1 Peter 3:7

"Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker (asthenes) partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers."

The word asthenes means...

1) weak, infirm, feeble


It usually refers to weakness in a physical sense. However, it could also refer to weakness in a mental sense as well...

1 Corinthians 8:7,10

"But not everyone knows this. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat such food they think of it as having been sacrificed to an idol, and since their conscience is weak (asthenes), it is defiled.

For if anyone with a weak (asthenes) conscience sees you who have this knowledge eating in an idol's temple, won't he be emboldened to eat what has been sacrificed to idols?"

So does this mean that the wife is not only weaker physically but mentally as well? Well a well known commentator sure did think so...

and here "the weaker"; being so for the most part, both as to strength of body, and endowments of mind; (John Gills Exposition to the Bible, Commentary on 1 Peter 3:7)

Catholic Priest impregnantes teen girl

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A couple secretly videotaped a Roman Catholic priest having sex with their 18-year-old daughter in the basement of their home and are now suing, saying he got her pregnant.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday, alleges that the Rev. Luis A. Bonilla Margarito carried on a sexual relationship with the teen while he was the chaplain of Reading Central Catholic High School and she was a senior there.

The girl's parents became suspicious and installed a camera in their basement, where Bonilla and the teen were spending large amounts of time. The camera recorded the couple having sex in Nov. 2009, after she had graduated, according to the suit.

Bonilla and the teen are now evidently living with each other.

On Friday, an Associated Press reporter knocked on the door of the apartment where Bonilla now lives. A woman answered, and she identified herself as the teen named in the lawsuit filed by her parents. She declined to comment, and would not get Bonilla to come to the door.

But David Weldon, a maintenance man at the apartment complex, said the couple moved in together two or three months ago, and that she had the baby about six weeks ago.

Bonilla was removed from his dual posts as chaplain and pastor of St. Joseph Church in Reading after her parents took the sex tape to the Diocese of Allentown. He acknowledged at the time an "inappropriate relationship" with the teen, according to a diocesan news release from last November.

Bonilla was sent to a treatment facility, but "continued to have intimate contact with (the teen) during this time period and ultimately impregnated her," the suit said. She gave birth to a girl.

Bonilla, 41, left the treatment facility at some point and moved into the two-story complex of brick garden apartments in Philadelphia suburb.

"He has no assignment and he has not functioned as a priest since November," diocesan spokesman Matt Kerr said Friday.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, a support group for victims of clergy abuse, released a statement Friday calling on the Allentown diocese to find out whether Bonilla had an inappropriate relationship with anyone else.

"History, research and experience has taught us that predators rarely have only one victim. We fear others who have been hurt are trapped in silence and self blame," said Barbara Dorris, SNAP's outreach director.

Bonilla was named the chaplain of Central Catholic in 2008 and befriended the teen, then 17, at the beginning of her senior year. Bonilla "began to groom (the teen) for a sexual relationship," the suit said, knowing that she suffered from mental health issues, was previously sexually abused by an adult man, and was "susceptible to being manipulated."

Her parents began to suspect a relationship and reported their concerns to administrators at Central Catholic, "but were told their suspicions were unfounded and that nothing could be done to separate (the teen) and Father Bonilla because he was her spiritual advisor and/or counsellor," according to the suit.

Bonilla also took steps to alienate the teen from her parents, telling her that she was 18 and no longer had to obey them, the suit said.

The suit charged that diocesan officials knew about the relationship but were "so concerned about their own reputation and/or financial interests, that they failed to protect (the teen) from Father Bonilla."

The parents say they are alienated from their daughter as a result of her relationship with Bonilla, and are seeking punitive damages for breach of fiduciary duty, infliction of emotional distress and gross negligence. The suit names as defendants Bonilla, the diocese, the high school, Allentown Bishop John Barres, and former Bishop Edward Cullen.

Christian woman fired for pre-martial sex

The couple sat close together with her right hand clasped in his left hand and her left arm cradling the 8-month-old daughter whose conception cost the woman her job.

The couple’s sin, according to her former employer, Southland Christian School in St. Cloud, Fla., is fornication — having sex before they got married.

Jarretta Hamilton and her husband of 16 months, Samuel Treftz, told TODAY’s Ann Curry Monday that the termination violated federal anti-discrimination laws. In addition, they allege in a pending lawsuit, the school’s principal, Jon Ennis, invaded Hamilton’s privacy by telling other teachers and the parents of her students the exact reason she was fired.

“When they let me go, they told the entire staff in a staff meeting that I had been fired and the reason why they let me go. And then they called all of my parents to my fourth-grade students and told them as well,” Hamilton said.

Ennis declined to appear on TODAY, citing a lawsuit filed by Hamilton against the school. But in a prerecorded report filed by NBC News’ Mike Taibbi, Ennis was asked if he stood by the firing. “Yes, absolutely,” he replied.

Hamilton said her problems are all the result of her being honest. A widow with five children from her first marriage, she had gotten work as a teacher at Southland Christian School in January 2008. Meanwhile, she also met Treftz, and they planned a Feb. 20, 2009, wedding.

Three weeks before the wedding, she conceived her daughter, Sarah.

Pastor rapes 9 year old girl

A former pastor at the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Renewal Movement, David Nwaneri, 38, has been arrested by the police and charged to court for allegedly defiling a nine-year old girl.

The accused, who claimed that his wife recently delivered a baby, was caught in his house located at 35, Akogun Street, Ejigbo, Lagos, Nigeria, using his fingers on the private part of the victim and in the process broke her hymen.

The eldest sister of the victim alleged that she saw him carrying the victim on his lap.

The prosecutor also alleged that he forced his victim to rob his penis to satisfy his sexual desire.

In her statement to the police, the victim disclosed that the pastor invited her into his room at about 7 p.m. on the fateful day and started putting his fingers into her private part.

Her elder sister alleged that blood was coming out of her private part when she saw her and this made her to report the matter to her mother who raised an alarm that attracted neigbours.

The matter was reported at the Ejigbo police station and the pastor was arrested and charged before the Ejigbo Magistrate’s Court for defilement.

In his statement to the police, the pastor allegedly admitted putting his fingers into her private part but did not have sex with her.

He begged the family for an out of court settlement but the police rejected his plea.

The presiding magistrate, Mrs. M.B. Folami, asked the mother of the victim, Mrs. Gladis Ulebe, if she was still interested in prosecuting the case and the woma tendered a letter to withdraw the matter.

Christian man marries 10 year old girl

And yet again, the sorry media tries to cover up scandals commited by Christians. Using words such as "Self-proclaimed christians" or in this case it is claimed it wasn't known if he had religious training. Oh well it is yet again Christianity at it's finest.

The arrangement, investigators believe, lasted for almost nine years until the young woman walked into the Mound Police Department in January and bore witness against her uncle.

The niece told investigators that Fall maintained the relationship through coercion, threatening to kick her and her two brothers out of the house if she didn't go along.

In recent years police were called to the home to talk with Fall's wife and the niece about alleged abuse, but both denied it, according to police reports.

"He really believes that this is OK," Mound Police Chief James Kurtz said. "I don't know how long he's believed that."

'A firm set of beliefs'

James Fall has been in the Hennepin County jail for weeks awaiting trial.

He is scheduled to be in Hennepin County District Court later this month as part of a custody hearing involving a 16-year-old nephew living at his home who was taken away by the county after the sexual abuse allegations surfaced.David Risk, Fall's lawyer, said he will ask the court to conduct a mental health evaluation on Fall to see how competent his client might be.

Fall's punishment, Risk said, might ultimately hinge on his religious beliefs.

"From a religious perspective this is very unusual," said Risk, who does not expect to use polygamy or religious freedom as a defense. "We need to explore his mental health. Mr. Fall has a firm set of beliefs. That is something we will have to look at. Some of his beliefs are outside the norm and would cause someone to question his competency."

Now notice up here there is a clear cover up for Christianity. Quite obvious this is an evangelical lawyer hired. All enough to give this article another label. Can you guess what it is?

Wittke and other Mound police officers said Fall knew what he was doing and had ready arguments about what he did and how he lived.

Investigators have not been able to determine whether Fall, who calls himself a Christian, has any formal religious training. Wittke said she was told that Fall's father was a minister at a church in Minneapolis decades ago.

Wittke said no one who knows Fall has come forward to say he needs medication or hears voices or somehow is not in control of his actions.

"He was very calm ... very open to talking about it," Wittke said. "He did not hold anything back. I think that when this all got started he searched the Bible looking for scriptures to tell him that it was all OK."
Other facets of the case

Police also are investigating possible fraud, a murder allegation and just how the victim and her two siblings came to live in the Fall home after the death of their father.

Following Fall's arrest, family members contacted the Anoka County Sheriff's Department to have investigators look at whether James Fall might have killed his brother-in-law, Phillip Johnson, possibly by poisoning him 10 years ago.

"We reviewed it," said Lt. Paul Sommer. "We talked to the medical examiner's office and everything was done ... the coroner said [Johnson] died of a heart attack."

The question of how the children ended up in the home after Johnson's death has yet to be answered.

"We cannot confirm he has any legal status with the children," Kurtz said. "We can't find any legal documents that he has legal guardianship."

That has spurred allegations that the Falls were taking monthly Social Security checks from the children and using that money to live on.

Police said they also are checking computers in the home for child pornography. Wittke said that Fall showed the victim pornography that usually depicted younger girls and older men.

As far as police can tell, there appear to be no other victims in the case. But a final ruling on that probably won't be made until after the computers are analyzed and the investigation is completed.

"It's a strange case," Kurtz said. "I've never encountered one like this before."

Pastor brutally assaults woman

A GWANDA woman escaped death by a whisker when she was brutally assaulted by a pastor during a cleansing ceremony.
A pastor from Zion Church of Christ (ZCC), John Gochani (65) of Betsa area pleaded not guilty to assault, but was convicted by Gwanda resident magistrate Mr Takudzwa Gwazemba.
He was sentenced to 105 hours of community service at Betsa Primary School.
In his defence Gochani told the court that it was their church’s belief to assault patients when driving away evil spirits.
When he was asked whether the evil spirits had gone, he said they had not, but were going to be driven away after another assault if she had not reported the matter to the police.
The prosecutor, Mr Mazwi Goto, told the court that on 10 February, the complainant, Mrs Gugu Nzima (45) went to Betsa ZCC congregation where she was referred to by a pastor from Garanyemba.
She was sent there for a prayer session since she was not feeling well.
Upon arrival Gochani asked the complainant why she was there and she said her pastor had referred her to the congregation.
She then handed him a letter from the pastor.
Gochani then ordered a female church elder to take the complainant to a place where the prayer session was to be conducted.
On arrival she was told to take off her clothes except for the bra and panties.
Gochani later came and started assaulting Mrs Nzima with a switch and she sustained serious injuries as a result.
The matter was later reported to the police, leading to his arrest.

Ice cream ad angers Christians

Yep Christians have attacked freedom of speech yet again.

A controversy-courting Italian ice-cream maker is in hot water for running an ad featuring a heavily pregnant nun with the strapline "immaculately conceived", after a stream of complaints to the advertising watchdog that it is offensive to Christians because it mocks the birth of Jesus.

The ad, which is featured in magazines The Lady and Grazia, features a pregnant nun enjoying a pot of Antonio Fedirici ice-cream.

The Advertising Standards Authority has launched an investigation to see if the campaign breaks the advertising code on the grounds of taste and decency. The ASA has received about 40 complaints from members of the public that it is offensive to Christians, especially Catholics, "because it mocks the virgin birth of Jesus".

Matt O'Connor, creative director at the ice-cream company, argued that it is an "intelligent, challenging and iconoclastic piece of advertising". O'Connor, who points out that he is an Irish Catholic himself, also argues that the ad "tells a deeper story", satirising the "horrific stories involving thousands of pregnant Irish women enslaved by the Catholic church in convents and who had their children taken away from them by nuns because they were seen as 'moral degenerates'".

The ad is the latest in the company's "Ice-cream is our religion" campaign.

Last year the ASA banned an ad campaign by the company featuring a a young nun and priest about to share a kiss after complaints that it was offensive to those in a religious order.

Vatican police asks women campaigners to leave

Activists campaigning for the Catholic Church to ordain women as priests were asked to leave the Vatican on Tuesday.

I'm in my first year of university (yes, I'm only 19) so I've been really busy. I'll update this blog inshallah when I'm done this semester. But I've been posting almost daily on the main blog ( about women in Christianity. So far I've got 351 articles since 2009 on women being raped, assaulted, abused, killed, and kidnapped. So please see the other blog.

Thanks for all your support!
