Let’s start out this clusterfuck with a little information about my own religious background. I’ve been raised Catholic and through the whole religious education regiment. There was a time in my life where I didn’t bother with church and became disenchanted with the whole concept. I flat out told the priest that would eventually perform my marriage ceremony that you didn’t need to go to church to believe in God. I still am firm in this line of thinking. however, I attend church regularly now in a small Catholic church–the same one I got married in–and I am a member of the choir. With all that, I do see things I feel are hypocritical in my chosen religion. Their views on gays, for example. Last I remember, Jesus didn’t preach hate.
No religion is perfect. I like to say that God and I understand each other. Whatever humans want to say is insignificant to the relationship I’ve built with the supreme being. I believe that Mother Nature cares for the earth and you should treasure the meat carcass your soul lives in until the next life. Yeah, not really the Catholic norm. Don’t care.
On to the point of this post and boy is it going to be a long one. Unless you’ve been living without outside news sources or don’t have internet (and can’t read this anyways) you might have seen the ‘delightful’ story about the vagina clown car family the Duggars. Specifically, Josh Duggar.
Not allegedly, Josh Duggar–at the ‘tender’ age of fourteen–decided that it would be super awesome not only to molest girls younger than him (some way younger) from other families but his own sisters as well. Of course when his father found out, he was suuuper sad. So of course the best course to deal with this was to go to the police.
No … wait a minute. That’s right! The church elders. Silly me to think going to the authorities outside the church would be the best course. My bad. That’s okay. He’ll get the help he needs by going to a treatment center and the victims will also get help.
…. four months of hard labor helping to remodel a building counts right? And just getting the victims to realize it was their fault counts also, right? Women are supposed to submit. All that suffragettes stuff was just a waste of time. Women need to just stay home and squeeze out several dozen children from their super elastic vagina cars. And for gosh sakes–stand by your man even when you know he fondles young children. God will save him! /insert eye roll here/
After this ‘treatment’, Josh Duggar got a stern talking to from a family friend. This person was a cop named Joseph T. Hutchens, who didn’t report the incident, but maybe that’s because he liked child pornography. You can’t make this shit up.
Now let’s remember they home school and the advice on sexual assault is scary as H-E-double hockey sticks.
Deuteronomy 22:22-24 King James Version (KJV)22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.
23 If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
24 Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour’s wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.
John 1:9 New International Version (NIV)
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.
Romans 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
A Living Sacrifice
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
I am beyond pissed off at religious zealots who exude the air of perfectionism in public and behind closed doors like are perverted fucks that think themselves above the law. It sickens me to see women so brainwashed that they don’t see that they’re cowed by the men who supposedly love them. Seriously, would you marry a guy who confessed about the molestation and then have children with him? Dafuq?
Because his father hid this from the police–or police that gave a shit–the statutes of limitations are up on even attempting to prosecute. No, Baby Jesus does not approve. No matter what the religious nut jobs think, God doesn’t strip away the sickness within a child molester no more than he can ‘cure’ someone of being gay. That’s just putting your delusional blindfold on and playing in traffic. So stop being huge dicks and get the fuck down from your high horse. Your nose is bleeding, douchewad.
Also, Mike Huckabee is a huge douchebag. Not voting for you, jagoff. On the plus side, TLC has done the right thing by pulling the show off the air. I suspect that the show will go away like Honey Boo Boo did when the mother thought dating a known child molester was a good thing.
