christofascist taliban repugnant north dakota state rep terry b jones and his batshit crazy anti lgbt hb1476

Sick and twisted, ChristoFascist Taliban, GOP piece of fascist shit, North Dakota rep Terry Jones. Hey Terry, how about we start denying ALL Christian adulterers, divorced and remarried with adultery and then do as the buybull says we should do to adulterers. Put them to death.

Here is a link to the pdf of this sick and twisted, disgusting, ChristoFascist Talibans HB No 1476 seeking to lie about lgbts and secular humanism.

https://www.legis.nd.gov/assembly/67-2021/documents/21-0831-03000.pdf

So GOPig ChristoFascist Taliban Terry Jones, using your stupid logic? All Christian adulterers should be denied all rights and even put to death according to Leviticus 20:10. Yes, we should round up all evil Christian adulterers and stone them to death in the town square as commanded to be done in the bible.

Now let’s take what this scumbag says in his bill, which violates the separation of church and state clauses, violates a persons ie lgbt or secular humanists right to Free Speech under the First Amendment of the Constitution and pushes ChristoTaliban religion over all others, and his outrageous bullshit lie as to what secular humanism is.

The introduction for this ChristoFascist Taliban discrimination bill.

A BILL for an Act to create and enact a new chapter to title14 of the North Dakota Century Code, relating to nonsecular self-asserted sex-based identity narratives, to prohibit the state from creating or enforcing policies that directly or symbolically respect nonsecular self-asserted sex-based identity narratives or sexual orientation orthodoxy pursuant to the establishment clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and section3 of articleI of the Constitution of North Dakota; to provide for the continued enforcement of secular marriag epolicies; to prohibit discrimination for nonsecular beliefs pursuant to the free exercise clause ofthe First Amendment to the United States Constitution and section 3 of article I of theConstitution of North Dakota.

First, this piece of shit ChristoTaliban Fascist GOPig Terry Jones has no fucking clue as to what secular humanism is. This is what this Jeebus the Dead Jewish Zombie still rotting on a stick Fascist shitstain says what secular humanism is:

The term includes a belief system that is centered on the unproven assumptions there are no moral absolutes and no one moral doctrine should be used as the superior basis for law and policy. The term includes a series of unproven faith-based assumptions and naked assertions that suggest that morality and truth are man made conventions and that at the heart of liberty is man’s ability to define his own meaning of the universe. The term refers to a religion that tends to promote licentiousness and to justify practices that are inconsistent with the peace and safety of the state. The term refers to the belief that man is merely a bundle of chemicals, animated pieces of meat, or accidental particles, and that nature is all there is…

GOPig Terry Jones House Bill No. 1476
Perfectly describes ChristoFascist Taliban hypocrisy.

Now let’s see what secular humanism really means

Secular humanism is comprehensive, touching every aspect of life including issues of values, meaning, and identity. Thus it is broader than atheism, which concerns only the nonexistence of god or the supernatural. Important as that may be, there’s a lot more to life … and secular humanism addresses it.

Secular humanism is nonreligious, espousing no belief in a realm or beings imagined to transcend ordinary experience.

Secular humanism is a lifestance, or what Council for Secular Humanism founder Paul Kurtz has termed a eupraxsophy: a body of principles suitable for orienting a complete human life. As a secular lifestance, secular humanism incorporates the Enlightenment principle of individualism, which celebrates emancipating the individual from traditional controls by family, church, and state, increasingly empowering each of us to set the terms of his or her own life.

Secular humanism is philosophically naturalistic. It holds that nature (the world of everyday physical experience) is all there is, and that reliable knowledge is best obtained when we query nature using the scientific method. Naturalism asserts that supernatural entities like God do not exist, and warns us that knowledge gained without appeal to the natural world and without impartial review by multiple observers is unreliable.

Secular. “Pertaining to the world or things not spiritual or sacred.”

Humanism. “Any system of thought or action concerned with the interests or ideals of people … the intellectual and cultural movement … characterized by an emphasis on human interests rather than … religion.”
— Webster’s Dictionary

Secular humanism provides a cosmic outlook—a world-view in the broadest sense, grounding our lives in the context of our universe and relying on methods demonstrated by science. Secular humanists see themselves as undesigned, unintended beings who arose through evolution, possessing unique attributes of self-awareness and moral agency.

Secular humanists hold that ethics is consequential, to be judged by results. This is in contrast to so-called command ethics, in which right and wrong are defined in advance and attributed to divine authority. “No god will save us,” declared Humanist Manifesto II (1973), “we must save ourselves.” Secular humanists seek to develop and improve their ethical principles by examining the results they yield in the lives of real men and women.

Now? Let’s educate this ChristoFascist Taliban troglodyte on the truth and facts about his brutally evil, disgustingly degenerate, hypocrisy of Christianity

Christianity and Christians rose to power not on their message of love, peace, forgiveness, not judging others, or in keeping any of their supposed commandments of Jesus, such as turning the other cheek, forgiving your enemies, etc. That if you have any hate in your heart for ANYONE, then YOU cannot call yourself a Christian and follower of Jesus.

Christian atrocities and butchery against the Pagans:

As soon as Christianity was legal (315), more and more pagan temples were destroyed by Christian mob. Pagan priests were killed. Between 315 and 6th century thousands of pagan believers were slain. Examples of destroyed Temples: the Sanctuary of Aesculap in Aegaea, the Temple of Aphrodite in Golgatha, Aphaka in Lebanon, the Heliopolis. Christian priests such as Mark of Arethusa or Cyrill of Heliopolis were famous as “temple destroyer.”

Pagan services became punishable by death in 356.

Christian Emperor Theodosius (408-450) even had children executed, because they had been playing with remains of pagan statues.


According to Christian chroniclers he “followed meticulously all Christian teachings…”

In 6th century pagans were declared void of all rights. In the early fourth century the philosopher Sopatros was executed on demand of Christian authorities.

The world famous female philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria was torn to pieces with glass fragments by a hysterical Christian mob led by a Christian minister named Peter, in a church, in 415.

Emperor Karl (Charlemagne) in 782 had 4500 Saxons, unwilling to convert to Christianity, beheaded.

Peasants of Steding (Germany) unwilling to pay suffocating church taxes: between 5,000 and 11,000 men, women and children slain 5/27/1234 near Altenesch/Germany.

Battle of Belgrad 1456: 80,000 Turks slaughtered.

15th century Poland: 1019 churches and 17987 villages plundered by Knights of the Order. Victims unknown.

16th and 17th century Ireland. English troops “pacified and civilized” Ireland, where only Gaelic “wild Irish”, “unreasonable beasts lived without any knowledge of God or good manners, in common of their goods, cattle, women, children and every other thing.”

One of the more successful soldiers, a certain Humphrey Gilbert, half-brother of Sir Walter Raleigh, ordered that “the heddes of all those (of what sort soever thei were) which were killed in the daie, should be cutte off from their bodies… and should bee laied on the ground by eche side of the waie”, which effort to civilize the Irish indeed caused “greate terrour to the people when thei sawe the heddes of their dedde fathers, brothers, children, kinsfolke, and freinds on the grounde”.

Tens of thousands of Gaelic Irish fell victim to the Christian carnage.

It is far past time for ChristoTalibans to reap back what they have sown and have done unto them as they have done unto Pagans, Atheists, LGBTS, Native Americans and many others in their demonic 2,000 year history of forced conversions, tortures and murders of others. All in the name of their Christian god, their Jesus, their Buybull and their Christianity.

First Crusade: 1095 on command of pope Urban II.

Semlin/Hungary 6/24/96 thousands slain. Wieselburg/Hungary 6/12/96 thousands.

9/9/96-9/26/96 Nikaia, Xerigordon (then turkish), thousands respectively.

Until Jan 1098 a total of 40 capital cities and 200 castles conquered (number of slain unknown) after 6/3/98 Antiochia (then turkish) conquered, between 10,000 and 60,000 slain. 6/28/98 100,000 Turks (incl. women & children) killed.

Here the Christians “did no other harm to the women found in [the enemy’s] tents—save that they ran their lances through their bellies,” according to Christian chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.

Marra (Maraat an-numan) 12/11/98 thousands killed. Because of the subsequent famine “the already stinking corpses of the enemies were eaten by the Christians” said chronicler Albert Aquensis.

Jerusalem conquered 7/15/1099 more than 60,000 victims (jewish, muslim, men, women, children).

(In the words of one witness: “there [in front of Solomon’s temple] was such a carnage that our people were wading ankle-deep in the blood of our foes”, and after that “happily and crying for joy our people marched to our Saviour’s tomb, to honour it and to pay off our debt of gratitude”) The Archbishop of Tyre, eye-witness, wrote: “It was impossible to look upon the vast numbers of the slain without horror; everywhere lay fragments of human bodies, and the very ground was covered with the blood of the slain. It was not alone the spectacle of headless bodies and mutilated limbs strewn in all directions that roused the horror of all who looked upon them. Still more dreadful was it to gaze upon the victors themselves, dripping with blood from head to foot, an ominous sight which brought terror to all who met them. It is reported that within the Temple enclosure alone about ten thousand infidels perished.” [TG79] Christian chronicler Eckehard of Aura noted that “even the following summer in all of palestine the air was polluted by the stench of decomposition”.

One million victims of the first crusade alone.

Battle of Askalon, 8/12/1099. 200,000 heathens slaughtered “in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ”.

Fourth crusade: 4/12/1204 Constantinople sacked, number of victims unknown, numerous thousands, many of them Christian.

Rest of Crusades in less detail: until the fall of Akkon 1291 probably 20 million victims (in the Holy land and Arab/Turkish areas alone).

15th century: Crusades against Hussites, thousands slain.

1538 pope Paul III declared Crusade against apostate England and all English as slaves of Church (fortunately had not power to go into action).

1568 Spanish Inquisition Tribunal ordered extermination of 3 million rebels in (then Spanish) Netherlands. Thousands were actually slain.

1572 In France about 20,000 Huguenots were killed on command of pope Pius V. Until 17th century 200,000 flee.

17th century: Catholics slay Gaspard de Coligny, a Protestant leader. After murdering him, the Catholic mob mutilated his body, “cutting off his head, his hands, and his genitals… and then dumped him into the river […but] then, deciding that it was not worthy of being food for the fish, they hauled it out again [… and] dragged what was left … to the gallows of Montfaulcon, ‘to be meat and carrion for maggots and crows’.”

17th century: Catholics sack the city of Magdeburg/Germany: roughly 30,000 Protestants were slain. “In a single church fifty women were found beheaded,” reported poet Friedrich Schiller, “and infants still sucking the breasts of their lifeless mothers.”

17th century 30 years’ war (Catholic vs. Protestant): at least 40% of population decimated, mostly in Germany.

So this is how the ChristoFascist Taliban rose to power. First by declaring Pagans to be put to death and then? Christians putting millions of Pagans to brutal, vile, evil death.

Of course? ChristoFascist Taliban justify this by proclaiming they were the ones who were persecuted and were only defending themselves against the Pagans, which, according to the Christians own recorded history of this? They are full of bullshit when they say they were the ones persecuted.

Now? Let’s see how Christians treated Jews shall we?

Already in the 4th and 5th centuries synagogues were burned by Christians. Number of Jews slain unknown.

In the middle of the fourth century the first synagogue was destroyed on command of bishop Innocentius of Dertona in Northern Italy. The first synagogue known to have been burned down was near the river Euphrat, on command of the bishop of Kallinikon in the year 388.

17. Council of Toledo 694: Jews were enslaved, their property confiscated, and their children forcibly baptized.

The Bishop of Limoges (France) in 1010 had the cities’ Jews, who would not convert to Christianity, expelled or killed.

First Crusade: Thousands of Jews slaughtered 1096, maybe 12.000 total. Places: Worms 5/18/1096, Mainz 5/27/1096 (1100 persons), Cologne, Neuss, Altenahr, Wevelinghoven, Xanten, Moers, Dortmund, Kerpen, Trier, Metz, Regensburg, Prag and others (All locations Germany except Metz/France, Prag/Czech)

Second Crusade: 1147. Several hundred Jews were slain in Ham, Sully, Carentan, and Rameru (all locations in France).

Third Crusade: English Jewish communities sacked 1189/90.

Fulda/Germany 1235: 34 Jewish men and women slain.

1257, 1267: Jewish communities of London, Canterbury, Northampton, Lincoln, Cambridge, and others exterminated.

1290 in Bohemian (Poland) allegedly 10,000 Jews killed.

1337 Starting in Deggendorf/Germany a Jew-killing craze reaches 51 towns in Bavaria, Austria, Poland.

1348 All Jews of Basel/Switzerland and Strasbourg/France (two thousand) burned.

1349 In more than 350 towns in Germany all Jews murdered, mostly burned alive (in this one year more Jews were killed than Christians in 200 years of ancient Roman persecution of Christians).

1389 In Prag 3,000 Jews were slaughtered.

1391 Seville’s Jews killed (Archbishop Martinez leading). 4,000 were slain, 25,000 sold as slaves. Their identification was made easy by the brightly colored “badges of shame” that all jews above the age of ten had been forced to wear.

1492: In the year Columbus set sail to conquer a New World, more than 150,000 Jews were expelled from Spain, many died on their way: 6/30/1492.

1648 Chmielnitzki massacres: In Poland about 200,000 Jews were slain.

The Holocaust saw the internment and execution of an estimated six million European Jews between 1933 and 1945. The process that led up to the Holocaust and the justifications for the actions of the Nazis were deeply rooted in misrepresentations and misinterpretations of scripture by some of humanity’s worst people.[9] The Nazis were amazing propagandists who utilized people’s beliefs and prejudices to turn the German public against the Jews.

This was done through a variety of means, but ultimately, the justification was made that the Jewish people were “less than” the Christian majority in the country. Adolf Hitler justified many of his views in his book, Mein Kampf, through the Bible and cited numerous passages throughout indicating why the Aryan race was superior to all others:

Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord.

The Holocaust represents how religion and preconceived prejudices can be used to negatively motivate people to do horrific things.

Next up GOPig Terry Jones, you disgusting ChristoFascist pig, let’s look at what you Christians did to us Native Americans, with Christians committing the worst case of mass extermination genocide against us Native Americans and justified it using the Christian Manifest Destiny evil:

Beginning with Columbus (a former slave trader and would-be Holy Crusader) the conquest of the New World began, as usual understood as a means to propagate Christianity.

Within hours of landfall on the first inhabited island he encountered in the Caribbean, Columbus seized and carried off six native people who, he said, “ought to be good servants … [and] would easily be made Christians, because it seemed to me that they belonged to no religion.”

While Columbus described the Indians as “idolators” and “slaves, as many as [the Crown] shall order,” his pal Michele de Cuneo, Italian nobleman, referred to the natives as “beasts” because “they eat when they are hungry,” and made love “openly whenever they feel like it.”

On every island he set foot on, Columbus planted a cross, “making the declarations that are required” – the requerimiento – to claim the ownership for his Catholic patrons in Spain. And “nobody objected.” If the Indians refused or delayed their acceptance (or understanding), the requerimiento continued:

I certify to you that, with the help of God, we shall powerfully enter in your country and shall make war against you … and shall subject you to the yoke and obedience of the Church … and shall do you all mischief that we can, as to vassals who do not obey and refuse to receive their lord and resist and contradict him.”

Likewise in the words of John Winthrop, first governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony: “justifieinge the undertakeres of the intended Plantation in New England … to carry the Gospell into those parts of the world, … and to raise a Bulworke against the kingdome of the Ante-Christ.”

In average two thirds of the native population were killed by colonist-imported smallpox before violence began. This was a great sign of “the marvelous goodness and providence of God” to the Christians of course, e.g. the Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony wrote in 1634, as “for the natives, they are near all dead of the smallpox, so as the Lord hath cleared our title to what we possess.”

On Hispaniola alone, on Columbus visits, the native population (Arawak), a rather harmless and happy people living on an island of abundant natural resources, a literal paradise, soon mourned 50,000 dead.

The surviving Indians fell victim to rape, murder, enslavement and spanish raids.

As one of the culprits wrote: “So many Indians died that they could not be counted, all through the land the Indians lay dead everywhere. The stench was very great and pestiferous.”

The indian chief Hatuey fled with his people but was captured and burned alive. As “they were tying him to the stake a Franciscan friar urged him to take Jesus to his heart so that his soul might go to heaven, rather than descend into hell. Hatuey replied that if heaven was where the Christians went, he would rather go to hell.” [SH70]

What happened to his people was described by an eyewitness:


“The Spaniards found pleasure in inventing all kinds of odd cruelties … They built a long gibbet, long enough for the toes to touch the ground to prevent strangling, and hanged thirteen [natives] at a time in honor of Christ Our Saviour and the twelve Apostles… then, straw was wrapped around their torn bodies and they were burned alive.”

Or, on another occasion:

“The Spaniards cut off the arm of one, the leg or hip of another, and from some their heads at one stroke, like butchers cutting up beef and mutton for market. Six hundred, including the cacique, were thus slain like brute beasts…Vasco [de Balboa] ordered forty of them to be torn to pieces by dogs.”

The “island’s population of about eight million people at the time of Columbus’s arrival in 1492 already had declined by a third to a half before the year 1496 was out.” Eventually all the island’s natives were exterminated, so the Spaniards were “forced” to import slaves from other caribbean islands, who soon suffered the same fate. Thus “the Caribbean’s millions of native people [were] thereby effectively liquidated in barely a quarter of a century”.

“In less than the normal lifetime of a single human being, an entire culture of millions of people, thousands of years resident in their homeland, had been exterminated.”

“And then the Spanish turned their attention to the mainland of Mexico and Central America. The slaughter had barely begun. The exquisite city of Tenochtitln [Mexico city] was next.”

Cortez, Pizarro, De Soto and hundreds of other spanish conquistadors likewise sacked southern and mesoamerican civilizations in the name of Christ (De Soto also sacked Florida).

“When the 16th century ended, some 200,000 Christian Spaniards had moved to the Americas. By that time probably more than 60,000,000 natives were dead.”

Of course no different were the founders of what today is the US of Amerikkka.

Although none of the settlers would have survived winter without native help, they soon set out to expel and exterminate the Indians. Warfare among (north American) Indians was rather harmless, in comparison to European standards, and was meant to avenge insults rather than conquer land. In the words of some of the pilgrim fathers: “Their Warres are farre less bloudy…”, so that there usually was “no great slawter of nether side”. Indeed, “they might fight seven yeares and not kill seven men.” What is more, the Indians usually spared women and children.

In the spring of 1612 some English colonists found life among the (generally friendly and generous) natives attractive enough to leave Jamestown – “being idell … did runne away unto the Indyans,” – to live among them (that probably solved a sex problem).


“Governor Thomas Dale had them hunted down and executed: ‘Some he apointed (sic) to be hanged Some burned Some to be broken upon wheles, others to be staked and some shott to deathe’.”

Of course these elegant measures were restricted for fellow englishmen: “This was the treatment for those who wished to act like Indians. For those who had no choice in the matter, because they were the native people of Virginia” methods were different: “when an Indian was accused by an Englishman of stealing a cup and failing to return it, the English response was to attack the natives in force, burning the entire community” down.

On the territory that is now Massachusetts the founding fathers of the colonies were committing genocide, in what has become known as the “Peqout War”. The killers were New England Puritan Christians, refugees from persecution in their own home country England.

When however, a dead colonist was found, apparently killed by Narragansett Indians, the Puritan colonists wanted revenge. Despite the Indian chief’s pledge they attacked.

Somehow they seem to have lost the idea of what they were after, because when they were greeted by Pequot Indians (long-time foes of the Narragansetts) the troops nevertheless made war on the Pequots and burned their villages.

The puritan commander-in-charge John Mason after one massacre wrote: “And indeed such a dreadful Terror did the Almighty let fall upon their Spirits, that they would fly from us and run into the very Flames, where many of them perished … God was above them, who laughed his Enemies and the Enemies of his People to Scorn, making them as a fiery Oven … Thus did the Lord judge among the Heathen, filling the Place with dead Bodies”: men, women, children.

So “the Lord was pleased to smite our Enemies in the hinder Parts, and to give us their land for an inheritance”.

Because of his readers’ assumed knowledge of Deuteronomy, there was no need for Mason to quote the words that immediately follow:
“Thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth. But thou shalt utterly destroy them…” (Deut 20)

Mason’s comrade Underhill recalled how “great and doleful was the bloody sight to the view of the young soldiers” yet reassured his readers that “sometimes the Scripture declareth women and children must perish with their parents”.

Other Indians were killed in successful plots of poisoning. The colonists even had dogs especially trained to kill Indians and to devour children from their mothers breasts, in the colonists’ own words: “blood Hounds to draw after them, and Mastives to seaze them.” (This was inspired by spanish methods of the time)

In this way they continued until the extermination of the Pequots was near.

The surviving handful of Indians “were parceled out to live in servitude. John Endicott and his pastor wrote to the governor asking for ‘a share’ of the captives, specifically ‘a young woman or girle and a boy if you thinke good’.”

Other tribes were to follow the same path.

Comment the Christian exterminators: “God’s Will, which will at last give us cause to say: How Great is His Goodness! and How Great is his Beauty!”

“Thus doth the Lord Jesus make them to bow before him, and to lick the Dust!”

Like today, lying was OK to Christians then. “Peace treaties were signed with every intention to violate them: when the Indians ‘grow secure uppon (sic) the treatie’, advised the Council of State in Virginia, ‘we shall have the better Advantage both to surprise them, & cutt downe theire Corne’.”

In 1624 sixty heavily armed Englishmen cut down 800 defenseless Indian men, women and children.

In a single massacre in “King Philip’s War” of 1675 and 1676 some “600 Indians were destroyed. A delighted Cotton Mather, revered pastor of the Second Church in Boston, later referred to the slaughter as a ‘barbeque’.”

To summarize:

Before the arrival of the English, the western Abenaki people in New Hampshire and Vermont had numbered 12,000. Less than half a century later about 250 remained alive – a destruction rate of 98%. The Pocumtuck people had numbered more than 18,000, fifty years later they were down to 920 – 95% destroyed. The Quiripi-Unquachog people had numbered about 30,000, fifty years later they were down to 1500 – 95% destroyed. The Massachusetts people had numbered at least 44,000, fifty years later barely 6000 were alive – 81% destroyed. These are only a few examples of the multitude of tribes living before Christian colonists set their foot on the New World. All this was before the smallpox epidemics of 1677 and 1678 had occurred. And the carnage was not over then.

All the above was only the beginning of the European colonization, it was before the frontier age actually had begun.

A total of maybe more than 150 million Indians (of both Americas) were destroyed in the period of 1500 to 1900, as an average two thirds by smallpox and other epidemics, that leaves some 50 million killed directly by violence, bad treatment and slavery.

In many countries, such as Brazil, and Guatemala, this continues even today.

More Glorious events in US history

Reverend Solomon Stoddard, one of New England’s most esteemed religious leaders, in “1703 formally proposed to the Massachusetts Governor that the colonists be given the financial wherewithal to purchase and train large packs of dogs ‘to hunt Indians as they do bears’.”

Massacre of Sand Creek, Colorado 11/29/1864. Colonel John Chivington, a former Methodist minister and still elder in the church (“I long to be wading in gore”) had a Cheyenne village of about 600, mostly women and children, gunned down despite the chiefs’ waving with a white flag: 400-500 killed.


From an eye-witness account: “There were some thirty or forty squaws collected in a hole for protection; they sent out a little girl about six years old with a white flag on a stick; she had not proceeded but a few steps when she was shot and killed. All the squaws in that hole were afterwards killed …”

By the 1860s, “in Hawai’i the Reverend Rufus Anderson surveyed the carnage that by then had reduced those islands’ native population by 90 percent or more, and he declined to see it as tragedy; the expected total die-off of the Hawaiian population was only natural, this missionary said, somewhat equivalent to ‘the amputation of diseased members of the body’.”

20th Century Church Atrocities committed by Christians.

  • Catholic extermination camps
    Surpisingly few know that Nazi extermination camps in World War II were by no means the only ones in Europe at the time. In the years 1942-1943 also in Croatia existed numerous extermination camps, run by Catholic Ustasha under their dictator Ante Paveli, a practising Catholic and regular visitor to the then pope. There were even concentration camps exclusively for children!

In these camps – the most notorious was Jasenovac, headed by a Franciscan friar – orthodox-Christian serbians (and a substantial number of Jews) were murdered. Like the Nazis the Catholic Ustasha burned their victims in kilns, alive (the Nazis were decent enough to have their victims gassed first). But most of the victims were simply stabbed, slain or shot to death, the number of them being estimated between 300,000 and 600,000, in a rather tiny country. Many of the killers were Franciscan friars. The atrocities were appalling enough to induce bystanders of the Nazi “Sicherheitsdient der SS”, watching, to complain about them to Hitler (who did not listen). The pope knew about these events and did nothing to prevent them.

  • Catholic terror in Vietnam
    In 1954 Vietnamese freedom fighters – the Viet Minh – had finally defeated the French colonial government in North Vietnam, which by then had been supported by U.S. funds amounting to more than $2 billion. Although the victorious assured religious freedom to all (most non-buddhist Vietnamese were Catholics), due to huge anticommunist propaganda campaigns many Catholics fled to the South. With the help of Catholic lobbies in Washington and Cardinal Spellman, the Vatican’s spokesman in U.S. politics, who later on would call the U.S. forces in Vietnam “Soldiers of Christ”, a scheme was concocted to prevent democratic elections which could have brought the communist Viet Minh to power in the South as well, and the fanatic Catholic Ngo Dinh Diem was made president of South Vietnam.

Diem saw to it that U.S. aid, food, technical and general assistance was given to Catholics alone, Buddhist individuals and villages were ignored or had to pay for the food aids which were given to Catholics for free. The only religious denomination to be supported was Roman Catholicism.

The Vietnamese McCarthyism turned even more vicious than its American counterpart. By 1956 Diem promulgated a presidential order which read:

  • “Individuals considered dangerous to the national defense and common security may be confined by executive order, to a concentration camp.

Supposedly to fight communism, thousands of buddhist protesters and monks were imprisoned in “detention camps.” Out of protest dozens of buddhist teachers – male and female – and monks poured gasoline over themselves and burned themselves. (Note that Buddhists burned themselves: in comparison Christians tend to burn others). Meanwhile some of the prison camps, which in the meantime were filled with Protestant and even Catholic protesters as well, had turned into no-nonsense death camps. It is estimated that during this period of terror (1955-1960) at least 24,000 were wounded – mostly in street riots – 80,000 people were executed, 275,000 had been detained or tortured, and about 500,000 were sent to concentration or detention camps.

To support this kind of government in the next decade thousands of American GI’s lost their life….

  • Rwanda Massacres
    In 1994 in the small african country of Rwanda in just a few months several hundred thousand civilians were butchered, apparently a conflict of the Hutu and Tutsi ethnic groups.

For quite some time I heard only rumours about Catholic clergy actively involved in the 1994 Rwanda massacres. Odd denials of involvement were printed in Catholic church journals, before even anybody had openly accused members of the church.

Then, 10/10/96, in the newscast of S2 Aktuell, Germany – a station not at all critical to Christianity – the following was stated:

“Anglican as well as Catholic priests and nuns are suspect of having actively participated in murders. Especially the conduct of a certain Catholic priest has been occupying the public mind in Rwanda’s capital Kigali for months. He was minister of the church of the Holy Family and allegedly murdered Tutsis in the most brutal manner. He is reported to have accompanied marauding Hutu militia with a gun in his cowl. In fact there has been a bloody slaughter of Tutsis seeking shelter in his parish. Even two years after the massacres many Catholics refuse to set foot on the threshold of their church, because to them the participation of a certain part of the clergy in the slaughter is well established. There is almost no church in Rwanda that has not seen refugees – women, children, old – being brutally butchered facing the crucifix.

According to eyewitnesses clergymen gave away hiding Tutsis and turned them over to the machetes of the Hutu militia.

In connection with these events again and again two Benedictine nuns are mentioned, both of whom have fled into a Belgian monastery in the meantime to avoid prosecution. According to survivors one of them called the Hutu killers and led them to several thousand people who had sought shelter in her monastery. By force the doomed were driven out of the churchyard and were murdered in the presence of the nun right in front of the gate. The other one is also reported to have directly cooperated with the murderers of the Hutu militia. In her case again witnesses report that she watched the slaughtering of people in cold blood and without showing response. She is even accused of having procured some petrol used by the killers to set on fire and burn their victims alive…”

To GOPig, ChristoFascist Taliban Terry B Jones:

You, Terry B Jones are nothing more than a ChristoFascist Taliban, no different than a Muslim Taliban. You are disgustingly evil and no follower of Jesus Christ.

Not once, in the NT, did Jesus say anything about lgbts. But he did speak out against adulterers. And the bible? It gives a death penalty punishment for being an adulterer.

So you punk, you hypocrite, you cherry picking, buybull thumping hypocrite troglodyte…..how about we do unto Christian adulterers what you punk hypocrite Christians want to do unto lgbts?

It is far past time to start truly persecuting you disgusting ChristoFascist Talibans like you all persecute lgbts, atheists, secular humanists and others. Your own fucking buybull says? Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. And as you sow? So shall you reap.

So ChristoFascist GOPig Talibans like yourself? Should have all your fucking rights taken from you. All your First Amendment rights, to free speech should be taken from you as you wish to take the First Amendment rights of free speech from lgbts and secular humanists.

Matter of fact? Seeing you are such a hypocrite ChristoFascist Taliban punk bitch? Each and every one of you disgusting troglodtye Christians should be rounded up and put into concentration camps, like Charles Worley demanded be done to lgbts. Or as Steven Anderson demanded a US death penalty for lgbts? All ChristoFascist Talibans like you, Worley, Anderson, et al? Should be rounded up and put into concentration camps and then executed. For as you bitch assed ChristoFascist Taliban punks sow? So shall you reap and as you do unto others? The exact same should be done unto you punks.

time to clean out the trash at atheist militants rising

Now that the Traitor Trump era is finally over and the beginning of a new way of an administration and government has begun under President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris with Chuck Schumer leading the Senate and Nancy Pelosi leading the House? Things just might finally get done around here.

All I know is? Each time we have a Republican administration and a Republican Congress? The shit hits the fan and things to straight to the proverbial hell in a handbasket.

And Atheist Militants Rising now wants to do what many people do to the TRASH in their lives. Clean out each and every thing that has to do with the treasonous scumbag known as Donald J Trump.

So today I am going to delete every single posting that has any reference to that sub-human being who brought a lot of pain and misery to us all. I started the cleaning out of Trumpturd by deleting all the memes and all the stories I have on my puter at home. Everything that had to deal with Trump is now completely and totally wiped off my drives and will never be there again.

I found the best thing to clean out the trash like Trump is to clean out everything about them and then? Forget they have ever even existed. To pay not one ounce of attention to that which caused us so much harm.

We have a new President, a new Vice President, the Democrats basically control Congress. Now we all gotta work together to fix all the things that needs to be fixed.

For Covid-19? We want to end that? Then be smart huh? Mask up, social distance, wash your hands. These are the three biggest things that have proven to stop the spread of this deadly virus rampaging our country. Get the vaccine as soon as it becomes available in your area and you are allowed to do so.

For the white supremacist, Trump people still holding onto hope and still holding onto Trump’s lies? Come back to earth. If YOU truly love this country as you say you do? Then you will work to make it better, not to keep tearing it apart and thinking that you are oh so special.

Even as I, a Native American, who has every justification to not do so, am willing to work together with white people, black people, brown people, yellow people, and will even work together with YOU Trumpsters to make the world a better place for all of us and for our kids and grand kids. Cause is that not what we all want?

I can now drop the hateful satire that I used to speak out against Trump and the evil that was going on. I tell you it is both physically and mentally and emotionally draining to take all the hate, all the bigotry all the violence of these people and use it and throw it back into their faces. It is true that if you look into the dark abyss of this shit for far too long it starts to infect who you are. Yet? If you talked to most people who know me personally? Who hang around with me? That know the true me? They will tell you I love to make people laugh, I love to do all kinds of outrageous, happy shit, and some of my biggest loves are my three children, my four grand children, my adopted grand daughter, my crazy furball, and my work as a nature photographer. I love sharing the beauty I find in nature and sharing it with others.

My sister will tell you I had to main habits growing up. Being the class clown and standing up to bullies. I stil love doing both. But most of all? I love being the class clown and making people crack up and laugh their asses off. My brothers and sisters from other mothers will tell you that they know if they are having a hard time or a bad time they can always come to me and I will make them laugh their asses off and make them feel better.

I’ve been known for my practical jokes in HS like going to the river, gathering huge sucker fishes and putting them into the girls bathroom toilets or in the girls locker room showers….and yes they were out on the field when I did this and had two look outs to make sure. Or the waterballon day where I brought a bunch of water ballons to school and we literally flooded the place and I scored a perfect hit on the head of the vice principle as he was coming up the stairs. He did not get pissed either, he laughed his ass off and knew I was the “menace with the water ballons” along with a couple of my buddies. Of course I went a little too far one day with the M-80’s but learned a very valuable lesson on the power of those beasties. And yeah I actually got expelled for that. Oppssss but no one got hurt luckily and I stayed away from those kinds of fireworks after that shit.

My work exposing the pedos and standing up to the ChristoFascist Reich-Wingers, the Allah worshiping MuslimFascist Talibans, or any other psychotic, theistic fascist Taliban group, or standing up for equal rights and justice for atheists, lgbts, women and others will never end on Atheist Militants Rising, but now is the time to take that Trumpturd and flush him down the toilet where he belongs and do the one thing we all know he hates the most. Ignore him, pay him no mind nor attention, treat him like he is one of those stenchy farts some buddy releases after drinking too much Budweiser and eating too many damn jalapenos that eventually leaves the room and we go on with things.

I would rather forget that scum and send him no energy ever again. But I sure did love sending the satire and hypocrisy right back at them.

So, ladies and gentlemen, Atheist Militants Rising will be spending the next day or two cleaning out all the TRUMP TRASH on this blog. And then get ready to meet the real me.

KristoTaliban Pastor Robert Jeffress: We Allowed Atheists and Infidels to “Pervert Our Constitution”

KristoTaliban Pastor Robert Jeffress: We Allowed Atheists and Infidels to “Pervert Our Constitution”
By Beth Stoneburner
https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2020/07/16/robert-jeffress-we-allowed-atheists-and-infidels-to-pervert-our-constitution/

Not only is America a Christian country, but the Constitution has been perverted by infidels and atheists, according to MAGA cultist and Trump sycophant Pastor Robert Jeffress.

He made the comments on his “Pathway to Victory” broadcast during a series of episodes earlier this month promoting the Christian Nation myth. In the excerpt below, he was complaining about Supreme Court decisions that removed mandatory Bible readings from public schools.

And here’s the question: What has changed? What has changed? In these 150 years​, has the Constitution changed and nobody told us? Is that what happened? Of course not. What has happened is we have allowed the secularists, the humanists, the atheists, the infidels, to pervert our Constitution into something our Founding Fathers never intended. And it is time for Americans to stand up and say ‘Enough! We’re not going to allow this in our Christian country anymore.’ It is time to put an end to this.

It’s been said before, but conservative Christians like Jeffress always mistake religious equality for persecution because they’re so used to receiving special treatment.

It’s time to once again reiterate that the Bible says far more about welcoming the immigrant and serving the poor and marginalized than anything about abortion or LGBTQ issues — which Jeffress also brought up elsewhere in his episodes. (Interestingly enough, helping the poor would also result in fewer abortions, a fact Jeffress never seems to care about.)

Pretending we live in a Christian Nation doesn’t make it true. Lying about the past won’t change reality either. The fact remains if our government treated atheism or Islam the way we’ve historically treated Christianity, Jeffress would never stop whining about it.

‘Not Asking for Permission’: Hundreds of California Churches Plan to Open May 31

Nearly 500 California pastors are preparing to open their doors on Sunday, May 31st – whether or not they have guidance from the state. 

“The churches are not asking for permission,” said Bob Tyler, a religious freedom attorney advising the pastors. “The governor is sitting here as a dictator, trumping the Constitution and is kind of hanging on to this state of emergency for as long as he can hold it.”

Tyler says the pastors, including Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, Matt Brown of Sandals Church in Riverside, and Danny Carroll of Water of Life Community Church in Fontana, have signed a petition and plan to advise Gov. Gavin Newsom of their plans which include social distancing.

Evangelical Churches Sue California Governor Over Ban On Singing During Services

Gavin Newsom is violating religious liberty rights by prohibiting singing and chanting at worship services as the state tries to curb COVID-19, the suit says.

The evangelical congregations insist Newsom is infringing on their religious liberty by forcing them to stop singing and chanting during indoor services, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court in Sacramento.

“To prohibit group singing and chanting is to effectively prohibit corporate Christian worship,” the complaint states.

California’s health department updated its guidelines for houses of worship on July 1, adding new restrictions on singing and chanting. The guidelines explain that these activities “negate the risk reduction achieved through six feet of physical distancing” since there is a greater chance that COVID-19 will spread through “contaminated exhaled droplets.” 

But the Northern California churches ― Calvary Chapel of Ukiah, Calvary Chapel of Fort Bragg and River of Life Church in Oroville ― don’t appreciate the government telling them how to worship. The churches are seeking an injunction against the health department’s ban in a lawsuit that names Newsom and three health officials as defendants

Some 190 of them signed a letter objecting to Gov. Steve Sisolak’s emergency order limiting gatherings to 10 people, including in churches. They say it is unnecessary.

David Oberg, pastor of Faith Alive Christian Center in Reno, summed it up in a press release: “We simply ask for him to reconsider that decision and allow us the freedom of religion and to peacefully assemble again.”

Christian leaders rally in Raleigh demanding reopening of churches

Churchgoers from across the state gathered in downtown Raleigh Thursday to rally against Gov. Roy Cooper’s stay-at-home order and demand the right to hold services inside their buildings.

The group leading the charge, Return America, is led by pastors and Christian educators. During the rally, the group announced that they had filed a lawsuit against Cooper over not allowing indoor assemblies at churches.

Berean Baptist Church, Pastor of the church and Return America President Ronnie Baity and People’s Baptist Church filed the federal lawsuit to block enforcement of rules covering religious services. Those filing the suit say the state’s restrictions violate the First Amendment and treat churches differently from retailers.

‘The governor is a servant of the state. I am a servant of God’: 3 pastors defend why they’re leading the charge to reopen churches

Diego Mesa was driving in Southern California on Thursday evening when he passed shops selling donuts, clothes, and cannabis.

It boggles his mind that these businesses were marked as essential and permitted to reopen on May 8, as Gov. Gavin Newsom’s reopening plan moved into its second stage. Churches, however, were shelved until the plan’s third phase — lumped in with personal care, exercise, and entertainment facilities.

“Our ideals differ in what we view as essential,” Mesa told Business Insider. “When we are deemed as non-essential, there’s an agenda there.”

As the pastor of the Abundant Living Family Church in Rancho Cucamonga, Mesa is among more than 1,200 religious leaders in California who’ve signed a Declaration of Essentiality for Churches, vowing to host in-person services on May 31, Pentecost Sunday, with or without Newsom’s blessing.

Entitlement may lead to chronic disappointment

Entitlement may lead to chronic disappointment
Case Western Reserve University
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/09/160913134442.htm

Entitlement — a personality trait driven by exaggerated feelings of deservingness and superiority — may lead to chronic disappointment, unmet expectations and a habitual, self-reinforcing cycle of behavior with dire psychological and social costs, according to new research.

Entitlement — a personality trait driven by exaggerated feelings of deservingness and superiority — may lead to chronic disappointment, unmet expectations and a habitual, self-reinforcing cycle of behavior with dire psychological and social costs, according to new research by Case Western Reserve University.

In a new theoretical model, researchers have mapped how entitled personality traits may lead to a perpetual loop of distress, in a literature review published in the Psychological Bulletin.

“At extreme levels, entitlement is a toxic narcissistic trait, repeatedly exposing people to the risk of feeling frustrated, unhappy and disappointed with life,” said Joshua Grubbs, the primary author of the paper and a recent PhD graduate in psychology from Case Western Reserve.

“Often times, life, health, aging and the social world don’t treat us as well as we’d like. Confronting these limitations is especially threatening to an entitled person because it violates their worldview of self-superiority,” said Grubbs, now a clinical psychology professor at Bowling Green State University.

Reacting to perceived injustices, entitled people may direct their anger outward, blaming others, while reassuring themselves of their own specialness — thus beginning the cycle again.

The study — based on a review of more than 170 academic papers — outlines the cycle as a three-stage process:

• First, entitlement creates a constant vulnerability to unmet expectations.

• Unmet expectations then lead to dissatisfaction and other volatile emotions.

• Emotional distress demands a remedy, leading to the reinforcement of superiority.

“Reassurance stemming from entitlement can provide temporary relief from the very distress caused by entitlement,” said Julie Exline, co-author of the study and a professor of psychological sciences at Case Western Reserve.

But these benefits are short-lived; long-term consequences associated with entitled behavior include poor relationships, interpersonal conflicts and depression.

“The entire mindset pits someone against other people,” Exline said. “When people think that they should have everything they want — often for nothing — it comes at the cost of relationships with others and, ultimately, their own happiness.”

Previous studies show entitlement is on the rise — so-called “millennials” see themselves as generally more entitled than previous generations; entitled traits have an especially fertile breeding ground in the strong current of individualism valued by American society and culture, Exline says, though pinning blame for the phenomenon is difficult.

And while there is no clear path for a person to break out of the cycle of entitled behavior, previous research shows that traits of humility and gratitude can protect against the distress associated with entitlement.

By creating a sense of safety and security, psychologists have helped entitled people feel more connected to others by finding common ground in the limitations and suffering present in all human lives.

“Yet, this may be too much to ask,” Grubbs said. “It’s often unacceptable for entitled people to consider they are not the exception to the rule.”

What the explosion in viral ‘Karen’ videos and public meltdowns tells us about entitlement

What the explosion in viral ‘Karen’ videos and public meltdowns tells us about entitlement
By Lindsay Dodgson
https://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/lifestyle-buzz/what-the-explosion-in-viral-karen-videos-and-public-meltdowns-tells-us-about-entitlement/ar-BB16P7yi?li=BBnb7Kz

Publicly broadcasting entitled tantrums has become a massive trend in the last few years. During lockdown, it’s taken on a life of its own, with seemingly endless videos capturing people throwing angry fits about being asked to wear masks and even pointing guns at Black Lives Matter protesters in their neighborhood.

Whether people are behaving inappropriately in higher numbers, or they are just being called out for it more, is unclear. But according to therapist and YouTuber Kati Morton, it’s definitely true that everyone’s anxiety levels are higher than normal. This means our fight or flight response is going into hyperdrive.

“We can’t fight or run from the coronavirus like we could from a bear,” she told Insider. “So all of that energy is caught up inside of us causing us to feel irritable, on edge, hypervigilant, and stressed out.”

Anger is a secondary emotion, meaning it often boils up inside to cover up something else like anxiety, fear, or shame. Some psychologists therefore label it as a “positive” emotion, because it helps us steer clear of the uncomfortable ones and makes us feel strong and powerful instead.

However, if we spend our whole lives broadcasting the blame outwards with anger instead of focusing inwardly and taking accountability, we can fall into the trap of the “entitlement mindset.”

‘At extreme levels, entitlement is a toxic narcissistic trait’

Entitlement means believing you should receive recognition without earning it. It’s the belief you are superior to others because of your race, gender, sexuality, or nationality, and you have difficulty accepting others as equals if they are different.

In 2016, a group of researchers from Case Western Reserve found that having an exaggerated sense of superiority and deservingness led to a “perpetual loop of distress.”

“At extreme levels, entitlement is a toxic narcissistic trait, repeatedly exposing people to the risk of feeling frustrated, unhappy and disappointed with life,” said psychologist Joshua Grubbs, the primary author of the paper.

“Oftentimes, life, health, aging, and the social world don’t treat us as well as we’d like. Confronting these limitations is especially threatening to an entitled person because it violates their worldview of self-superiority.”

By reacting to these perceived injustices with anger reassures themselves of their own specialness, and the cycle continues, he said.

Research from 2002 also found that entitlement, when studied as a trait of narcissism, was associated with higher levels of anger in a sample of 130 male college students. So while it doesn’t excuse the behavior, the psychology of entitlement may help us understand the rage that seems so prevalent in the world right now.

The ‘Karen’ mindset

Many instances of entitlement have been catalogued by Instagram pages like @karensgoingwilds over the last few months. They have been collecting footage from people all over the US who identify “Karens” — a term that’s been adopted for a white woman, or sometimes a man, who is caught committing acts of racism in public.

Some examples include videos of white women calling the police on innocent people, blocking people from leaving parking lots, and screaming beyond sense. The exponential movement for catching this over-the-top behavior on camera seemed to begin with Amy Cooper — the “Central Park Karen” — who threatened a Black man by calling the police on him when he asked her to put a leash on her dog.

Psychologist Perpetua Neo told Insider one reason for the rage we see in people acting incongruously in public could be related to the uncertainty they feel right now. Not only is there an ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but there have also been hundreds of stories of police brutality dominating the news, and there is more necessity than ever for people to face up to their own privileges and prejudices.

“Nobody likes to admit they are fearful or anxious, so it becomes another kind of poison, and metamorphizes into something else,” said Neo. “The ‘Karens’ are clearly quite angry about something and they need to scapegoat somebody who is different to them.”

Someone who is entitled has their own ideas of where they fit in society and what their rights are, and they are not used to those being challenged.

Neo said there’s a sense of “How dare you?” that encompasses an entitled person’s dislike of being told what to do. This can be seen when a simple request of being asked to wear a mask can turn into an intense altercation as defensiveness becomes extreme and the entitled person lashes out.

It can be particularly rage-inducing if a white person is criticized by someone younger than them or a person of color if they’re used to ignoring the benefit they’ve received from injustices their entire lives.

“They think. ‘You’re worse than me, you’re subordinate to me, you’re stupid,'” said Neo. “And I know the system is on my side, the white person, so let me call the cops on you.”

Individualism vs Communitarianism in society

Morton said it could also come down to the fact the US is quite an individualistic society. An individualist mindset means your actions are centered around your own rights and needs, with less attention being placed on your community. In comparison, communitarianism is more about being aware and connected to society, and being mindful about how your choices affect everyone.

People in a communitarian society, like in Japan and Taiwan, have worn masks for decades, in part because they have a heightened awareness for one another’s health. Someone who is more individualistic may be less likely to wear a mask even now in the midst of a pandemic for selfish reasons: It’s uncomfortable, it makes them look scared and weak, or they don’t believe they’ll get sick so they don’t see the point.

“We stocked up on toilet paper so that our family wouldn’t run out, we didn’t think about how that could affect someone else,” said Morton of the individualistic mindset. “Wearing a mask protects others from your germs, which requires us to think of what’s good for our country as a whole instead of what’s good for just us.”

As entitlement videos continue to spread online, there’s been an inevitable backlash to the trend of people being called out when they make a scene in public. But Neo said that’s an attempt to misdirect from the actual problem.

“Basically that’s gaslighting you, making you responsible for how uncomfortable they feel as a result of their own actions,” she said. “Fundamentally, they think, ‘I’m allowed to be racist and scold people and basically be abusive.'”

Louisiana priest convicted of molestation released on bond

OPELOUSAS, Louisiana — A former Louisiana priest convicted of molesting an altar boy was released from jail on bond over coronavirus safety concerns.

Michael Guidry, 77, was released Friday nearly a year after he pleaded guilty to molesting a 16-year old boy after giving him alcohol in Guidry’s home, The Advertiser reported. The victim said in a civil lawsuit that he woke up one day in 2015 after doing chores in Guidry’s home and found the former priest molesting him, The Advocate reported. The victim told authorities about the molestation when he was an adult, four years after it happened.

Guidry, who served as the priest of St. Peter’s Church in Morrow, was then sentenced to 10 years in prison in April 2019, KATC-TV reported.

His release on bond from St. Landry Parish jail comes amid objections from state prosecutors after his defense attorney, Jane Hogan, requested an emergency appeal hearing because of the virus outbreak. Guidry had been awaiting another sentencing hearing after a request to reconsider his 10-year sentence was denied by a judge in September, KATC-TV reported.

Kevin Bourgeois, a volunteer at a New Orleans nonprofit group for survivors of clergy abuse, told KATC-TV Guidry’s release on bond sends a message to survivors that “their life is not as important as this sex offender’s life.”

Judge Alonzo Harris, the same judge who sentenced Guidry last year, had set the bond for Guidry. During that sentencing, the judge said “there are some things in life you just can’t tolerate and one is sexual abuse on our children by priests.”

Guidry will be placed on house arrest with an ankle monitor while on bond, and the court has also instructed him to not make contact with the victim.

Tommy Guilbeau, a defense attorney that is not involved in the case, said while it’s “highly unusual” for a felon convicted of child molestation to be on house arrest, not releasing them at this time would be “condemning them to die in a petri dish of COVID-19.”

The victim’s parents and siblings told the court last year that the abuse caused chaos and pain in their family. The family declined to comment to KATC-TV due to a gag order.

The AP does not usually name victims of sexual assault.

Buffalo Diocese files for bankruptcy after hundreds of sex abuse claims

Buffalo Diocese files for bankruptcy after hundreds of sex abuse claims. Albany Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger has led the diocese since December.
By Cayla Harris
https://www.timesunion.com/news/article/Buffalo-Diocese-files-for-bankruptcy-after-hundred-15091849.php

The Buffalo Diocese, temporarily headed by Albany Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger, filed for bankruptcy Friday morning as it grapples with hundreds of lawsuits alleging decades of child sexual abuse and cover-ups.

It is the second New York diocese to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy – which allows for reorganization of assets instead of liquidation. The Diocese of Rochester filed for bankruptcy in September. The decision was largely anticipated as the Buffalo diocese, facing more than 250 lawsuits over the past six months alleging sexual abuse, has emerged as the most-named defendant in all Child Victims Act cases.

The state’s Child Victims Act in August opened a one-year window temporarily eliminating the statute of limitations for civil cases involving sex crimes. Since then, more than 1,600 cases have been filed statewide, many of them resurfacing decades-old allegations.

In a filing in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Western District of New York – first reported by The Buffalo News – the Buffalo Diocese identified $10 million to $50 million in assets and $50 million to $100 million in liabilities. In court filings, Scharfenberger asserted that the filing was necessary “in order to respond to claims stemming from the Child Victims Act in an equitable and comprehensive manner, and to reorganize the financial affairs of the Diocese in order to permit it to continue to fulfill its ministries to the Catholic faithful of the Diocese.”

“We have no more urgent work than to bring about justice and healing for those harmed by the scourge of sexual abuse,” Scharfenberger said in a Friday statement.

The decision puts all lawsuits against the diocese on pause as leaders determine how best to address the allegations and compensate accusers. It does not affect the daily operations of local parishes.

Scharfenberger, who is temporarily leading the Buffalo Diocese after the resignation of its former Bishop Richard Malone in December, will address the media in Buffalo at a 1 p.m. news conference. He had been weighing the decision for months, repeatedly telling reporters that a decision would come “soon.”

“Whatever we do has to be done in a way that puts victims first,” Scharfenberger told Albany reporters in December, acknowledging that bankruptcy could freeze litigation but may also offer more equal payouts to survivors who have filed claims. “We want to look at all of those things, and then that might be the best way to go.”

He said at the time that the Albany Diocese is not considering a bankruptcy filing, and likely would not for “the next year or so.” The Albany Diocese has also faced its share of Child Victims Act cases, though far fewer, at about 65. The Albany Diocese serves about half the number of Catholics as the Buffalo Diocese.

“The decision in Buffalo does not affect the Diocese of Albany in any way,” Albany Diocese spokeswoman Mary DeTurris-Poust said in an email. “Until we know the full financial scope of the CVA as it relates to the Diocese of Albany, we cannot and will not make any decisions. We have nothing to announce, other than that we continue to respond in justice to survivors of abuse and urge anyone who has suffered such abuse to come forward.”

Survivors and attorneys, reacting to Friday’s filing, criticized the decision as a roundabout way of denying victims their day in court. They noted that bankruptcy allows the diocese to avoid releasing certain information and files about priests and clergy accused of abusing children – documents that would typically be unearthed during the discovery process.

Manhattan-based attorney Jeff Anderson, who represents dozens of survivors suing the Buffalo Diocese, said the diocese “is using bankruptcy to continue to conceal the truth about predator priests.”

State Sen. Brad Hoylman, D-Manhattan, a sponsor of the Child Victims Act, said the filing could help reveal “how deep the pockets are of the institution” – but at the expense of preventing survivors from speaking out in front of a judge in a public courtroom.

“It’s despicable that an institution that was responsible for the abuse of thousands of young people across the state of New York would try to hide behind the bankruptcy laws to prevent these individuals from receiving the entirety of the claim due to them,” he said.

Over the weekend, New Zealand’s TV 1 News aired a disturbing report about Catholic priests allegedly abusing children on the island nation of Fiji. One of the victims said on camera that when he attended a Catholic school, priests would lure boys up to their bedrooms using candy and oranges (rare treats), then sexually assault them.

But where did these priests come from? That’s the kicker: Many of them were kicked out of the Catholic Church in New Zealand and Australia because they were accused of sexual abuse. Instead of moving them to another local parish, as we’ve seen in the U.S., some of them went to Fiji, where they found new victims in a culture that reveres men of God.

Catholic Church a big winner in US’s huge Covid-19 cash giveaway

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/thefreethinker/2020/07/catholic-church-a-big-winner-in-uss-huge-covid-19-cash-giveaway/

New York Diocese spokesman Joseph Zwilling airily suggested that the RCC simply took what was rightfully theirs, and just wanted to be ‘treated equally and fairly under the law.’

Many of the millions handed to the RCC, according to the Religious News Service, went to dioceses that have paid huge settlements or sought bankruptcy protection because of clergy sexual abuse cover-ups. And one beneficiary was a treatment centre for Catholic paedophile priests which received a loan of between $350,000 to $1 million.

An Associated Press analysis of federal data released this week found that the church’s haul may have reached – or even exceeded – $3.5 billion, putting it among the biggest winners in the US government’s pandemic relief efforts.

Time for these scumbags to pay for their Crimes Against Humanity and their Crimes Against the Children of the World.

If the courts, judges, and legislative bodies will not do what is right?

THEN ALL VICTIMS AND ALL SURVIVORS SHOULD RISE THE FUCK UP AND TAKE THE LAW INTO THEIR OWN HANDS AND START HUNTING DOWN THESE FUCKING ROMAN CATHOLIC PEDOPHILES, THEIR PEDOPHILE PIMPS AND ANY SCUMBAG, LIKE SAY BILL DONOHUE OF THE CATHOLIC LEAGUE, WHO DEFENDS THESE SCUMBAGS AND ATTACK THE VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS?

SHOULD ALL BE PUT ON THEIR FUCKING KNEES AND FUCKING EXECUTED.

IF THE COURTS WILL NOT DO WHAT IS RIGHT? IF THE LAW WILL NOT DO WHAT IS RIGHT? THEN WE THE SURVIVORS AND VICTIMS MUST TAKE THE LAW INTO OUR OWN HANDS.

TIME TO HUNT DOWN THESE PERVERTED PEDOPHILE SCUMBAG ROMAN CATHOLICS AND PUT THEM ON THEIR FUCKING KNEES AND GIVEN A FULL FRONTAL LOBOTOMY.

Trump Hate Map: People of Color Harrassed by Trump and His Supporters

Trump Hate Map: People of Color Harrassed by Trump and His Supporters

We’ve seen the proof since his campaign launch in June 2015.

http://americasvoice.org/trump-hate-map/

President-elect Donald Trump’s xenophobic rhetoric didn’t just push his fellow candidates to the right on immigration (in what has become known as the “Trump Effect”). It’s gone beyond the political world and injected itself into everyday life — and, in many instances across dozens of states, in a very violent ways.

This map shows documented instances where President-elect Donald Trump, his supporters, or his staff have harassed or attacked Latinos, immigrants, Muslim-American, African-Americans, and other minority and marginalized groups.

You can view individual incidents on the map by clicking directly on the Trump head “markers,” or you can click on the box-shaped symbol at the top left corner of the map to see a pull-down list of the incidents.

Brief Summary Man Charged With Assault After Punching Black Man And Telling Him Donald Trump Will Deport Him

Detailed Description A trio of Bangor City Council members is denouncing what they say was a hate crime against a black man in downtown Bangor Friday night. Police charged Joshua Pendergast, 42, of Bangor with misdemeanor assault late Monday.

Bangor City Council Chair Joe Baldacci, writing Sunday on his Facebook page, said, “[Two] days ago near Essex and Somerset streets in Bangor a young African American man was punched in the face and pushed to the ground, without any provocation, by an individual who after the assault told the African American man to watch out because Trump could deport him.

“Let’s be clear Bangor does not tolerate this kind of behavior,” Baldacci added.

Brief Summary African Meeting House hit hard by hate crime

Detailed Description The impact on Charity Grace Mofsen was immediate and visceral. Spray-painted in black on the side of the African Meeting House was “N—-r Leave” and a crudely-drawn phallic symbol.

“I broke down. I was hysterical,” said Mofsen, manager of the historic building on York Street. “I cried.”

The Nantucket Police Department had called Mofsen early Sunday morning to alert her of the vandalism. She was up early to head to the morning boat.

Brief Summary The Family Of A Young Biracial Boy Says He Was Hung By A Rope By Teenagers

Detailed Description The family of an 8-year-old biracial boy in Claremont, New Hampshire, said a group of teenagers hurled rocks at him, called him racially charged words, and then pulled a rope around his neck and hung him.

The boy’s grandmother, Lorrie Slattery, said the incident occurred on an afternoon in late August when her grandson was playing with teenagers in the neighborhood in a backyard.

“The (teenagers) said, ‘Look at this,’ supposedly putting the rope around their necks,” Slattery told the Valley News. “One boy said to (her grandson), ‘Let’s do this,’ and then pushed him off the picnic table and hung him.” The boy survived.

The alleged details of the events are based on Slattery’s account, which itself is based on what the boy and his 11-year-old sister, who was present, told their mother, Cassandra Merlin.

The boy’s uncle, Lyric Merlin, posted a photo of the boy’s injured neck on Facebook on Aug. 28, the day of the alleged incident.

“My nephew was hung from a tree by a 14yr old who claims ‘it was an accident,” Merlin wrote. “I don’t care what kind of excuse this teenager has but you DO NOT play with somebody’s life.”

Brief Summary South Boston brothers plead guilty to brazen beating

Detailed Description It was not enough for two South Boston brothers to urinate on a sleeping homeless man in August. They punched him repeatedly, and beat him with a metal pole. They called him a “wetback.”

Then they high-fived each other and walked away.

On Monday, the brothers — Scott Leader, 38, and Steven Leader, 30 — pleaded guilty to several felony charges in the unprovoked attack, including assault and battery, intimidation, and civil rights violations.

Scott Leader, who prosecutors said has a history of hate crimes against minorities, was sentenced to three years in state prison. Steven Leader was sentenced to at least two years behind bars.

Both sentences are followed by three years of probation.

One of the South Boston brothers accused of beating and urinating on the victim said he was inspired in part by Donald Trump.

The Dorchester attack drew national attention because of its random cruelty and explicit nature. Prosecutors said the men beat 58-year-old Guillermo Rodriguez because they thought he was an illegal immigrant. Scott Leader told police the violence was acceptable because the victim was homeless and Hispanic.

“Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported,” Scott Leader said after the attack, according to authorities.

In a mostly empty Boston courtroom, Suffolk Superior Court Justice Peter B. Krupp denounced the attack as “cowardly and despicable.”

Suffolk County prosecutor Nicole Rimar said the incident “was an unprovoked attack on a sleeping man based completely off racial hostility.”

Brief Summary Trump Supporters Bombard Nurse, Children With Threats

Detailed Description A home health care nurse in Maine said this week that supporters of President-elect Donald Trump have attacked her and her family with more than 100 calls because conservative websites published the wrong number.

Debbie Oram explained to the Bangor Daily News that the callers are upset at the owner of Turner LP Gas, who said he would not deliver gas to anyone who voted for the president-elect because he believes Trump is the antichrist.

Although Oram has no connection to the gas company, she has received more than 100 calls since Friday. It turns out that her number is one digit off from the number of the gas company. While some of the callers have been polite, the nurse said others have been downright scary.

“I’d appreciate anything you can do to put it out there so these calls will stop,” Oram told the paper. “I would hate to change my number but that’s what I’ll have to do if this doesn’t stop. We’ve had our number for years.”

According to Oram, some of the calls threatened her 21-year-old daughter and her 11-year-old son. Her son was so frightened that he began sleeping in his mother’s bedroom.

“They’re saying rude and disgusting things,” she remarked. “I had to go to my doctor today for more anxiety medication because of it.”

Brief Summary Arsonist’s threat to ‘torture’ immigrants a hate crime, say Charlotte police

Detailed Description An attempt to burn an east Charlotte store that included a note warning of plans to “torture” immigrants is being investigated as a hate crime by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police.

Police say officers were called at 9:59 p.m. Thursday to a fire at the Central Market, a Nepali Indian store at 5718 Albemarle Road in Charlotte. On arrival, officers were advised by the Charlotte Fire Department that the fire was contained to the front door and burned itself out by their arrival.

The note stated “the suspect did not want any refugee business owners and that they would torture the owner if they did not leave and go back to where they came from,” according to police.

It was signed “White America.”

Brief Summary Man Charged With Battery After Punching Latino Worker In Back Of Head \”For Donald Trump\”

Detailed Description hite Florida man has been charged with battery after he was accused of punching an Hispanic man in the back of the head “for Donald Trump.”

The Gainesville Sun reported that the incident occurred on Nov. 10 while the victim was cleaning the parking lot at a Gate Food Post store in Gainesville.

According to a police report obtained by Egberto Willies, Caleb Joseph Illig arrived at the parking lot at around 1:10 a.m. and began punching Pablo Echevarria in the back of the head.

The report said that Illig shouted, “Let’s Trump down,” as he punched Echevarria. When Echevarria asked why he was being attacked, Illig reportedly replied, “This is for Donald Trump.”

The charging document stated that Echevarria attempted “evasive movements” instead of fighting back. Eventually another employee intervened and Illig fled the scene. Echevarria told police that the back of his head and his neck were in pain after the attack but it was not immediately clear if he received medical assistance.

Police said that security footage “clearly shows [Illig] striking [Echevarria] in the back of the head, and completely corroborates the [victim] and [witness’] accounts of the incident.”

On Nov. 20, Illig told officers that he had “no recollection of the incident whatsoever,” and suggest that bipolar disorder and alcohol were to blame.

Illig was charged with simple battery.

Brief Summary Armed Trump Supporter Intimidates Woman And Child At Polling Location

Detailed Description A man wearing a Donald Trump shirt and carrying a weapon stood outside a voting location in Loudoun County, Virginia, on Friday. Authorities in the nation’s richest county are apparently OK with that.

Erika Cotti encountered the man when she went to vote at the county’s registrar’s office, she told The Huffington Post. Virginia doesn’t have early voting per se, but voters can cast in-person absentee ballots for a host of reasons, like if they’re going to be out of the county or city on Election Day.

“I had my 9-year-old son with me. I felt intimidated,” Cotti said. “And I had to explain to my 9-year-old why a man with a 357 magnum is standing outside the polling station.”

Cotti said the man offered her a Republican sample ballot, which she declined.

“He’s like, ‘Who are you going to vote for, crooked Hillary?’ And I was like, that’s really none of your business,” Cotti said, adding that the man was standing in the sidewalk outside of the office when they left and blocking their path.

Judy Brown, Loudoun County registrar, confirmed that the man was standing outside her office in Leesburg and handing out GOP literature.

“There is a gentleman standing outside the office with a holstered gun,” Brown told HuffPost. “According to law enforcement, because Virginia is open carry, he’s allowed to have it.”

Brief Summary “Black Lives Don’t Matter”, “Ni**er”: Trump Supporter Attacks Black Driver 

Detailed Description 29-year-old Brandon Levston says he became the victim of a horrifying and racially charged verbal assault ― one he says shows “exactly why” people need to get out and vote Tuesday.

The incident occurred in a parking lot outside a Memphis shopping mall after Levston was involved in a traffic altercation with a white male driver, The Commercial Appeal reported.

“What’s up, buddy?” the man, a supporter of Republican nominee Donald Trump, says after Levston began filming the encounter. “Hey, Trump. Trump all the way! Trump!”

Then the bigot shows his true colors, calling Levston a “n****r” numerous times, mocking the black man’s speech and coaching him on the definition of words like “matter” ― as in “black lives don’t matter” ― and racial epithets.

“I thought we may get kicked out,” she said. “I didn’t think they’d start shoving his wheelchair.”

Some people also criticized Holmes for taking her son to the rally, accusing her of using him to protest. “He’s not some puppet I wheeled in there,” Holmes said. “This was him — this was all him.”

Brief Summary Florida Man Accused of Setting Store Fire Thought Owners were Muslims

Detailed Description A 64-year-old Fort Pierce man who wanted to “run the Arabs out of of our country” remains jailed Saturday on $30,000 bond, according to the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office.

Richard Leslie Lloyd  was arrested Friday after he tried to set fire to a Port St. Lucie convenience store, the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office said. Lloyd reportedly told investigators he assumed the owner of a convenience store at Prima Vista and Airoso boulevards was Muslim and it made him mad “due to what they are doing in the Middle East.”

He was taken into custody after investigators responded shortly after 7:30 a.m. to reports of a suspicious person at the Met Mart convenience store. Deputies arrived to find that a dumpster had been rolled in front of the doors on the convenience store and set on fire.

Upon seeing deputies, Lloyd put his hands behind his back and said “take me away,” Sheriff Ken Mascara said. The St. Lucie County Fire District extinguished the fire. The store was not open and its security shutters were closed and intact.

“It’s unfortunate that Mr. Lloyd made the assumption that the store owners were Muslim when, in fact, they are of Indian descent,” Mascara said. “Regardless, we will not tolerate violence based on age, race, color, ancestry, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, homeless status, mental or physical disability.”

Brief Summary Man Charged With Hate Crime For Allegedly Plowing Truck Into Convenience Store

Brief Summary Man Kills One, Injures Two Whom He Suspected Were Iranians

Detailed Description Less than five hours after a man shot up a Kansas bar, killing one Indian man and wounding two other people in an apparently racially motivated attack, an Applebee’s bartender 70 miles away made a 911 call.

The woman on the phone told the dispatcher that a man had come into her bar and told her he “had done something really bad and he was on the run from the police.”

The man wouldn’t tell her what he did but kept asking her to allow him to stay at her house. The bartender persisted, persuading him to tell her what happened. “He said he shot and killed two Iranian people in Olathe,” the bartender said.

She read the news and sure enough, noticed that a few hours earlier, a shooting had taken place in Olathe, a city about 20 miles southwest of Kansas City. Her 911 call, later released by a local television station, led authorities to locate Adam Purinton, 51, of Olathe, late Wednesday and take him into custody. The phone call recording supports witness statements that the bar shooter thought the two men, Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, were of Middle Eastern descent.

They were actually Indian nationals employed by the technology firm Garmin. They had received master’s degrees in the United States. Kuchibhotla died from his injuries Wednesday, and Madasani was released from the hospital the following day. An American who was wounded when he tried to intervene, Ian Grillot, remains hospitalized but continues to improve, doctors said.

Brief Summary School District Apologizes After White Students Flash Trump Sign, Turn Backs On Black Players

Detailed Description A group of cowboy hat-clad high school students turned their backs and displayed a Donald Trump sign as the starting roster for a predominantly black basketball team was announced before a game in Missouri.

The pregame prank at Warrensburg High School occurred as the home team prepared for tipoff against the visiting Center High School Yellowjackets on Monday evening.

A Facebook video, viewed over 630,000 times by Thursday morning, shows a group of at least two dozen students with their backs turned to the court. Some of the students are wearing camo overalls and cowboy hats, and a Trump/Pence campaign sign can be seen held up among them.


“Let it be known how RACIST Warrensburg High School students are,” a caption read to the video, recorded by an attendee. “I’m appalled by the nonsense I’ve just witnessed with my own two eyes…If this was the Yellowjackets house, nothing but RESPECT would’ve been giving to these cowards.”

Warrensburg superintendent Scott Patrick condemned the Trump-tinged theatrics.

Brief Summary Attack on Milwaukee Muslim woman was a hate crime, local and national groups say

Detailed Description National and local Muslim civil rights and advocacy groups are calling for Milwaukee police to investigate as a hate crime an attack on a Muslim woman who says a man demanded she remove her hijab and beat her.

“You can’t get a clearer hate crime than this,” said Janan Najeeb, president of the Milwaukee Muslim Women’s Coalition.

“This was not a robbery,” Najeeb said Wednesday. “There was an individual telling her to take her scarf off, ripped it off and started beating her up. This is clearly a hate crime.”

The woman, who has not been publicly identified, told a local TV station she was walking near S. 13th St. and W. Layton Ave. about 6 a.m. Monday when a car pulled alongside her and a man got out, demanding she take off her hijab, or head scarf.

The woman tried to fight him and “he threw me on the floor, then he beat me like an animal,” the woman told WITI-TV (Channel 6). The man drew a knife and slashed at her clothing, said the woman, who showed the cameras her bloodstained head scarf.

After the woman got home, she suffered a seizure and went to the hospital. She was released Tuesday.

Brief Summary We’re Going to Kill All Of You

Detailed Description Three Fargoans, originally from Somalia, were stopped Tuesday evening outside of Walmart by a white woman from Mapleton and threatened while dozens of onlookers did nothing to intervene.

The women who were verbally attacked, Rowda Soyan, Sarah and Laleyla Hassan, were enjoying a day off from work when a blonde woman approached. Before they could enter the store around 5:30 p.m., the incident began, and video footage started halfway through the exchange.

“You’re a racist person, and I’m not going back to my country,” Soyan said in near-perfect English in the video.

“I’m an American,” the white woman, who later commented on Facebook about the Youtube video, said. According to the post her name is Amber Elizabeth Hensley, and she is a CPA for Horab & Wentz.

“What are you going to do?” Soyan said.

“We’re going to kill all of you, we’re going to kill every one of you fucking Muslims.”

“I am making a video and I am going to show it to the police,” Soyan said.

“Do you think the police care? Why are you in our country anyway?”

The incident marks the fifth such case this year, Hukun Abdullahi, co-founder of United African Youths, and founder of Afro American Development Association, said.

“It is happening, and I think this must be stopped,” Abdullahi said. “I don’t see any leaders condemning this issue. This will keep continuing.”

During the incident, people entering and exiting the Walmart on 13th Avenue stopped to watch, but no one tried to help.

“No one stood up for us, nobody even said a word, it was a scary moment for all of us,” Soyan said. “She went on and on, and it was really really scary. Out of nowhere, she just came and said those hateful words. It was an ‘Are you out of your mind’ moment?”

Soyan called police, and a report was made under case number 17-61490. Fargo Police were contacted for comment, but were not available.

“Her car had a Trump sign, and she said he’s the one who is going to send us back to our country,” Soyan said.

Brief Summary Iowa Elementary School Vandalized With \”Trump\”, \”KKK\”

Detailed Description Muscatine police are investigating after racial slurs were spray-painted on McKinley Elementary School over the holiday weekend. The school was marred by derogatory words pertaining to the gay community and black people. The spray paint covered walls, windows and even playground equipment. Educators at McKinley say they were at a loss for words when they first heard about what happen to their school.

For school administrator Lori Shield, the derogatory words written on the side of the school were heartbreaking.

“What goes through my head is, how can anyone be that hateful.” said Shield, who’s been with the school for 11 years. “Especially at a school, where we’re teaching innocence and pride and respect.”

Shield says even though the words are gone now, the reality that the kids were exposed to hatred is what hurts the most.

“Very emotional, when I came around the building and saw the wording it hurt me a great deal, this building and the people in it are my family,” said Shields.

Brief Summary Man Charged With Making Bomb Threats Against Jewish Community Centers

Detailed Description A former reporter for a news website was charged on Friday with making more than a half-dozen bomb threats against Jewish community centers, schools and a Jewish history museum, federal authorities said.

The man, Juan Thompson, 31, of St. Louis, made some of the threats using his own name and others implicating a former girlfriend as part of an effort to intimidate her, the authorities said in a federal complaint unsealed on Friday in Federal District Court in Manhattan.

In one threat, made on Feb. 1 against a Jewish school in Farmington Hills, Mich., the complaint says, Mr. Thompson claimed he had placed two bombs in the school and was “eager for Jewish newtown,” an apparent reference to the 2012 school massacre in Newtown, Conn., in which a gunman killed 20 students and six school employees.

Brief Summary A California waiter refused to serve 4 Latina women until he saw ‘proof of residency’

Detailed Description As the waiter walked up to the table, Carrillo figured she’d splurge on the grilled-cheese sandwich and pay the $2 up-charge to add some of the restaurant’s signature bacon. To start, maybe she’d share a watermelon and cheese plate with her sister and friends.

But the mood soured quickly after the waiter appeared. Before he could serve the four Latina women, he said, they needed to show proof of residency. “I need to make sure you’re from here,” he said.

Flummoxed, the four women handed over their IDs. But as what was happening sank in, they fumed. “I looked at my sister and [my friend], and I said, did he really just say that?”

A few moments later, they walked over to the manager and told him what had happened. He offered them a separate section and his business card to make things right — but they had already decided to leave.

Still livid a few hours later, Carrillo, a 24-year-old business analyst from Orange County, Calif., posted about the incident on Facebook:

“For a few seconds I thought maybe he was being a smart a– or joking but the fact that he said ‘I need to make sure you’re from here before I serve you’ was completely unacceptable.

How many others has he said this too? I hope this employee is reprimanded for his actions. No establishment should tolerate discriminatory actions from their employees. PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!”

People did. In a week, Carrillo’s post had been shared more than 600 times, and more than 100 people had posted comments.

Seeing the social media backlash, the restaurant’s management contacted Carrillo that Monday. They offered a VIP experience at the restaurant and pledged to donate 10 percent of the weekend’s proceeds to a nonprofit organization of the group’s choice. The four women declined the lavish meal, but asked that the restaurant donate the money to Orange County Immigrant Youth United.

Sandra Jametski, 48, of White Center, was has been held on $500,000 bail since early December, charged with malicious harassment, the state’s hate crime statute. Jametski is also known as Sandra Diann Huddleson.

King County prosecutors said Jametski followed a neighbor as the neighbor drove to her child’s school and that she recorded her racist rant on her phone.

“This person wrecked my car, lied to a frickin’ cop,” Jametski appears to say on the Facebook video. “You get a super good look everybody, this is what calls to be Spanish privileged in America.”

The video, which is being used as evidence in case, appears to record Jametski as her voice grows angrier and the dialogue becomes laced with obscenities as she claims that the driver caused an earlier crash.

“This is America. We don’t drive like that here. We don’t drive like you’re in Mexico, lady,” the woman said in the video before making remarks about citizenship and deportation.

Prosecutors said Jametski filmed the 10-minute video as she followed the woman on her usual 2½-mile drive to her son’s school. Once at the school parking lot, videos show Jametski getting out of her vehicle and angrily confronting the woman while still recording.

Brief Summary Suspect in Portland Hate Crime Murders is a Known White Supremacist

Detailed Description The man accused of the brutal hate crime slayings of two people at the Hollywood Transit Center on Friday afternoon is a known local white supremacist.

Jeremy Christian, 35, was booked early Saturday morning on two aggravated murder charges, an attempted murder charge, two intimidation (hate crime) charges, and a felon in possession of a restricted weapon charge.

The Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reported that the man “was on the MAX train yelling various remarks that would be best characterized as hate speech toward a variety of ethnicities and religions. At least two of the victims attempted to intervene with the suspect and calm him down. The suspect attacked the men, stabbing three, before leaving the train.”

Witnesses told the police that he was harassing two women who appear to be Muslim. One was described as wearing a hijab. One of the men he stabbed died at the scene, one was pronounced dead at a hospital, and one is expected to survive.

Christian is a known right wing extremist and white supremacist. On April 29, Christian showed up to the right-wing “March for Free Speech” on 82nd Avenue in Montavilla with a baseball bat in an attempt to assault left-wing protesters. The bat was quickly confiscated by Portland police officers. He ranted how he was a nihilist. He’d soon yelled racial slurs (“fuck all you n*****s”) and gave the Nazi salute throughout the day. He yelled “Hail Vinland” throughout the day.

A few Portland police officers on April 29 appeared to be familiar with Christian, but not threatened by him. They claimed he had a head injury and was mentally ill.
