Once again, Christians are being cast in a (justified) horrible light. The Christian community seems to suffer from the same problems as the Muslim
community, and the community of police officers. These groups have some members who are just sick, disgusting, evil people, and it makes their whole
group look bad. Guilt by association. Some say that's unfair, but I don't think it is.
If Christians were actually good people, all the Churches in the area would be rallying against this guy. Not only did he do incredibly awful things
to these poor kids, but he is also tearing down what little positive reputation Christians have. You'd think all the Churches and members would be
using their political pull to encourage harsher punishment for this man, but instead they likely used their influence to help him out. The only thing
that makes Christians look worse than pedo church authorities, is when the churches help defend and hide the misdeeds of those people.
The common idea is that Christians accept, support, and hide this behavior to avoid making the church look bad by exposing these evil men. I totally
disagree. It would do GOOD for the church's reputation if they were ousting pedos and using their pull to make sure they are harshly punished. I
suspect the reason for defending and hiding these sickos is because the church doesn't actually have a problem with it, they are involved in the same
sick behaviors as those who get caught, so they obviously want to help their fellow evil men out.
If you keep quiet while members of your group are doing terrible things, you aren't as bad as them, but you are still complicit in their actions.
Muslims en masse need to denounce the actions of terrorists, police need to do the same about corrupt cops and those who abuse citizens. Christians
and their Churches need to come out strongly against these type of behaviors and let their members and the public know that this will NOT be
tolerated. They aren't doing that, and that shows to me that there is very little good left in the Christian churches.
There was that story a few weeks ago about a teacher who raped a student, and HIS CHURCH bailed him out of jail. That despicable. The Christian
Churches in this country (and likely all over the world) have become nothing but bastions of sexually abusive and deviant people, and those who
support and hide them. The church has been destroying the youth for generations. This type of sexual abuse has massive effects on the victims, and
society as a whole.
One could argue the majority of this country's problems are related to sexual abuse. It's like a virus. Evil people victimize children, and as that
child grows up the evil grows inside them too, and the cycle continues. Those that don't abuse others are shattered and destroyed. If you look at the
numbers on how many people have been raped and molested, it's shockingly common. It's destroying the fabric of us as a people. It's twisting and
perverting the human spirit and destroys everything good in the world.
And Christians support it, defend it, and hide it. It's shameful, it's disgusting, but maybe the most horrifying part is that it's not surprising in
