Sexgate: Warner Bros. is “reviewing” Brett Ratner deal after sexual harassment allegations

The hits keep coming for Hollyweird. Good.

From MSN: Warner Bros. on Wednesday said that it was “reviewing” its deals with Brett Ratner following an L.A. Times report in which six women accused the filmmaker of sexual harassment and other misconduct.

In a statement to TheWrap, a Warner Bros. spokesperson said, “We are aware of the allegations in the LA Times and are reviewing the situation.”

Ratner, with his RatPac Entertainment banner, has a first-look deal with the studio, including a film co-financing pact. RatPac Entertainment rents office space on the lot.

Actresses Natasha Henstridge and Olivia Munn are among Ratner’s accusers — Henstridge says he “forced her to perform oral sex,” while Munn says Ratner masturbated in front of her in his trailer when she went to deliver a meal. Years later, the “Newsroom” actress said she ran into Ratner at a CAA party, where he boasted of ejaculating onto magazine covers featuring her image.

Ratner, through his attorney Martin Singer, disputed the accounts (notice he did not deny them). Singer did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment on the allegations or for the “10-page letter” the lawyer sent to the L.A. Times.

“I have represented Mr. Ratner for two decades, and no woman has ever made a claim against him for sexual misconduct or sexual harassment,” Singer said in that letter. “Furthermore, no woman has ever requested or received any financial settlement from my client.”

“The Punisher” actress Jaime Ray Newman and Katharine Towne (“What Lies Beneath”) also shared their Ratner stories in the piece, as did “Rush Hour 2” background actresses Eri Sasaki and Jorina King. Read the full Los Angeles Times story here.

The 48-year-old Ratner is the director of the “Rush Hour” movies and an executive producer on “The Revenant,” “Horrible Bosses” and TV’s “Prison Break.”

Ratner, whose RatPac production company was founded with billionaire investor James Packer, has seen his films gross more than $2 billion worldwide.

  2. IT’S NOT JUST ACTORS WHO ARE PERVERTS!
    UNHOLY PERVERSION

    BABYLONIAN TALMUD, Kethuboth 11b.

    “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing …like putting a finger in the eye”

    BABYLONIAN TALMUD, Menahoth 43b-44a.

    “A Jewish man is obligated to say the following prayer every day: Thank you God for not making me a gentile, a woman or a slave”.

    TORAH/TALMUD

    The Talmud is Judaism’s holiest book (actually a collection of books). Its authority takes precedence over the JEWISH Bible in Judaism. Evidence of this may be found in the Talmud itself, Erubin 21b (Soncino edition):

    "My son, be more careful in the observance of the words of the Scribes than in the words of the Torah (JEWISH Bible)."
    

    Jewish scholar Hyam Maccoby, in Judaism on Trial, quotes Rabbi Yehiel ben Joseph:

    "Further, without the Talmud, we would not be able to understand passages in the Bible...God has handed this authority to the sages and tradition is a necessity as well as scripture. The Sages also made enactments of their own...anyone who does not study the Talmud cannot understand Scripture."
    

    The Talmud (and not the JEWISH Scriptures) is the legal/canonical text which obligates those who follow the Jewish religion. It is from the Talmud that laws, regulations, and world views are drawn. In practice, the everyday life of the modern religious person is drawn and influenced by the Talmud.

    In the late 19th century, most European Jews were a people of the book. But their book wasn’t the JEWISH Bible. It was the BABYLONIAN TALMUD. To this day, the Talmud remains Judaism’s highest moral, ethical and legal authority.

    THREE YEAR OLD BRIDES

    Second century Rabbi Simeon ben Yohai, one of Judaism’s very greatest rabbis and a creator of Kabbalah, sanctioned pedophilia—permitting molestation of baby girls even younger than three! He proclaimed,

    “A proselyte who is under the age of three years and a day is permitted to marry a priest.” 1

    Subsequent rabbis refer to ben Yohai’s endorsement of pedophilia as “halakah,” or binding Jewish law. 2

    Has ben Yohai, child rape advocate, been disowned by modern Jews? Hardly. Today, in ben Yohai’s hometown of Meron, Israel, tens of thousands of orthodox and ultra-orthodox Jews gather annually for days and nights of singing and dancing in his memory.

    References to pedophilia abound in the Talmud. They occupy considerable sections of Treatises Kethuboth and Yebamoth and are enthusiastically endorsed by the Talmud’s definitive legal work, Treatise Sanhedrin.

    THE PHARISEES ENDORSED CHILD SEX

    The rabbis of the Talmud are notorious for their legal hair-splitting, and quibbling debates. But they share rare agreement about their right to molest three year old girls. In contrast to many hotly debated issues, hardly a hint of dissent rises against the prevailing opinion (expressed in many clear passages) that pedophilia is not only normal but scriptural as well! It’s as if the rabbis have found an exalted truth whose majesty silences debate.

    Because the Talmudic authorities who sanction pedophilia are so renowned, and because pedophilia as “halakah” is so explicitly emphasized, not even the translators of the Soncino edition of the Talmud (1936) dared insert a footnote suggesting the slightest criticism. They only comment: “Marriage, of course, was then at a far earlier age than now.” 3

    In fact, footnote 5 to Sanhedrin 60b rejects the right of a Talmudic rabbi to disagree with ben Yohai’s endorsement of pedophilia:

    “How could they [the rabbis], contrary to the opinion of R. Simeon ben Yohai, which has scriptural support, forbid the marriage of the young proselyte?” 4

    1 Yebamoth 60b, p. 402.
    2 Yebamoth 60b, p. 403.
    3 Sanhedrin 76a.
    4 In Yebamoth 60b, p. 404, Rabbi Zera disagrees that sex with girls under three years and one day should be endorsed as halakah.

    OUT OF BABYLON

    It was in Babylon after the exile under Nebuchadnezzar in 597 BC that Judaism’s leading sages probably began to indulge in pedophilia. Babylon was the staggeringly immoral capitol of the ancient world. For 1600 years, the world’s largest population of Jews flourished within it.

    As an example of their evil, Babylonian priests said a man’s religious duty included regular sex with temple prostitutes. Bestiality was widely tolerated. So Babylonians hardly cared whether a rabbi married a three year old girl.

    But with expulsion of the Jews in the 11th century AD, mostly to European lands, Gentile tolerance of Jewish pedophilia abruptly ended.

    Still, a shocking contradiction lingers: If Jews want to revere the transcendent wisdom and moral guidance of the Pharisees and their Talmud, they must accept the right of their greatest ancient sages to violate children. To this hour, no synod of Judaism has repudiated their vile practice.

    SEX WITH A “MINOR” IS PERMITTED

    What exactly did these sages say?

    The Pharisees justified child rape by explaining that a boy of nine years was not a “man”. Thus they exempted him from God’s Mosaic Law:

    “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination” (Leviticus. 18:22)

    One passage in the Talmud gives permission for a woman who molested her young son to marry a high priest. It concludes,

    “All agree that the connection of a boy aged nine years and a day is a real connection; whilst that of one less than eight years is not.” 5

    Because a boy under 9 is sexually immature, he can’t “throw guilt” on the active offender, morally or legally. 6

    Presumably, the majority of little Jewish boys get raped before they are nine by Rabbis. They get caught doing this constantly.

    And so do the Zionist Roman Catholic priests

    A woman could molest a young boy without questions of morality even being raised:

    “…the intercourse of a small boy is not regarded as a sexual act.” 7

    The JEWISH Talmud also says,

    “A male aged nine years and a day who cohabits with his deceased brother’s wife acquires her (as wife).” 8

    Clearly, the JEWISH Talmud teaches that a woman is permitted to marry and have sex with a nine year old boy.

    5 Sanhedrin 69b.
    6 Sanhedrin 55a.
    7 Footnote 1 to Kethuboth 11b.
    8 Sanhedrin 55b.

    SEX AT THREE & ONE DAY

    In contrast to Simeon ben Yohai’s dictum that sex with a little girl is permitted under the age of three years, the general teaching of the Talmud is that the rabbi must wait until a day after her third birthday. She could be taken in marriage simply by the act of rape.

    R. Joseph said: Come and hear! A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabits with her, she becomes his. (Sanhedrin. 55b)
    
    A girl who is three years of age and one day may be betrothed by cohabitation. . . .(Yeb. 57b)
    
    A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition, and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabited with her she becomes his. (Sanhedrin. 69a, 69b, also discussed in Yebamoth. 60b)
    
    It was taught: R. Simeon b. Yohai stated: A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest, for it is said, But all the women children that have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves, and Phineas (who was priest, the footnote says) surely was with them. (Yebamoth. 60b)
    
    [The Talmud says such three year and a day old girls are] . . . fit for cohabitation. . . But all women children, that have not known man by lying with him, it must be concluded that Scripture speaks of one who is fit for cohabitation. (Footnote to Yebamoth. 60b)
    

    The example of Phineas, a priest, himself marrying an underage virgin of three years is considered by the Talmud as proof that such infants are “fit for cohabitation.”

    The Talmud teaches that an adult woman’s molestation of a nine year old boy is “not a sexual act” and cannot “throw guilt” upon her because the little boy is not truly a “man.” 9

    But they use opposite logic to sanction rape of little girls aged three years and one day: Such infants they count as “women,” sexually mature and fully responsible to comply with the requirements of marriage.

    The Talmud footnotes 3 and 4 to Sanhedrin 55a clearly tell us when the rabbis considered a boy and girl sexually mature and thus ready for marriage.

    “At nine years a male attains sexual matureness… The sexual matureness of woman is reached at the age of three.”

    NO RIGHTS FOR CHILD VICTIMS

    The Pharisees were hardly ignorant of the trauma felt by molested children. To complicate redress, the Talmud says a rape victim must wait until she was of age before there would be any possibility of restitution. She must prove that she lived and would live as a devoted Jewess, and she must protest the loss of her virginity on the very hour she comes of age.

    “As soon as she was of age one hour and did not protest she cannot protest anymore.” 10

    The Talmud defends these strict measures as necessary to forestall the possibility of a Gentile child bride rebelling against Judaism and spending the damages awarded to her as a heathen – an unthinkable blasphemy! But the rights of the little girl were really of no great consequence, for,

    “When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing, for when the girl is less than this (three years and a day) it is as if one put the finger into the eye.” The footnote says that as “tears come to the eye again and again, so does virginity come back to the little girl under three years.” 11

    In most cases, the Talmud affirms the innocence of male and female victims of pedophilia. Defenders of the Talmud claim this proves the Talmud’s amazing moral advancement and benevolence toward children; they say it contrasts favorably with “primitive” societies where the child would have been stoned along with the adult perpetrator.

    Actually, the rabbis, from self-protection, were intent on proving the innocence of both parties involved in pedophilia: the child, but more importantly, the pedophile. They stripped a little boy of his right to “throw guilt” on his assailant and demanded complicity in sex from a little girl. By thus providing no significant moral or legal recourse for the child, the Talmud clearly reveals whose side it is on: the raping rabbi.

    PEDOPHILIA WIDESPREAD

    Child rape was practiced in the highest circles of Judaism. This is illustrated from Yebamoth. 60b:

    There was a certain town in the land of Israel the legitimacy of whose inhabitants was disputed, and Rabbi sent R. Romanos who conducted an inquiry and found in it the daughter of a proselyte who was under the age of three years and one day, and Rabbi declared her eligible to live with a priest.
    

    The footnote says that she was “married to a priest” and the rabbi simply permitted her to live with her husband, thus upholding “halakah” as well as the dictum of Simeon ben Yohai,

    “A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest.” 12

    These child brides were expected to submit willingly to sex. Yebamoth. 12b confirms that under eleven years and one day a little girl is not permitted to use a contraceptive but

    “must carry on her marital intercourse in the usual manner.”

    In Sanhedrin 76b a blessing is given to the man who marries off his children before they reach the age of puberty, with a contrasting curse on anyone who waits longer. In fact, failure to have married off one’s daughter by the time she is 12-1/2, the Talmud says, is as bad as one who “returns a lost article to a Cuthean” (Gentile) – a deed for which “the Lord will not spare him.” 13 This passage says:

    “… it is meritorious to marry off one’s children whilst minors.”

    The mind reels at the damage to the untold numbers of girls who were sexually abused within Judaism during the heyday of pedophilia. Such child abuse, definitely practiced in the second century, continued, at least in Babylon, for another 900 years.

    A FASCINATION WITH SEX

    Perusing the Talmud, one is overwhelmed with the recurrent preoccupation with sex, especially by the most eminent rabbis. Dozens of illustrations could be presented to illustrate the delight of the Pharisees to discuss sex and quibble over its minutest details.

    The rabbis endorsing child sex undoubtedly practiced what they preached. Yet to this hour, their words are revered. Simeon ben Yohai is honoured by Orthodox Jews as one of the very greatest sages and spiritual lights the world has ever known. A member of the earliest “Tannaim,” rabbis most influential in creating the Talmud, he carries more authority to observant Jews than Moses.

    • Buddy Silver . . . Thank you for this article. I must say I am left dumbfounded by the fact that the House of Judah, were no more circumspect regarding child molestation than are the Muslims. This is just horrific, it is little wonder that The Lord removed the Covenant from the House of Judah, they were obviously just about as wicked as Sodom & Gomorrah. The fact that this practice has come down through the ages, and is still practiced by Rabbi’s of today . . .it just leaves me breathless. It is unbelievable.

  6. Luke 17:2 – It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

    All pedophiles regardless of religion, lack of religion or ideology are possessed by demons in my opinion. Jews who practice pedophilia can’t really know God and his punishment for engaging in these horrific acts against children.

    • greenworxx . . . Amen to that sentiment! They will not escape the punishment for this horrific crime, just as The Lord has prescribed. They had better get ready to have that millstone wrapped around their neck, I think it highly impossible that they will be able to swim to avoid drowning under those circumstances. Thank Goodness, Our Lord & Savior will make up to all of the little ones for these ugly and horrific, vile acts which were perpetrated against them.

  8. will hollywierd ever wake up and see that immorallity will never satisy the immoral? Same sex, lurid sex, sex outside of marrige, pediphelia, rape, humiliation, S&M – All things I wish I’d never heard of and pray I’m never exposed to – ever. It’s getting so you can’t go out of the house, turn on the TV, or read the paper without being confronted with such filth. It’s everywhere and the practitioners demand that all capitulate to them. No regard for how I or anyone else feels or is affected.
    They WILL fail and fall. I peeked at the end of the Bible and OUR SIDE WINS!!!!!!!!
