MS-13 gang member sentenced to 40 years for brutal killing of 15-year-old girl

From Fox News: A female member of MS-13 was sentenced to 40 years in prison Friday in the brutal killing of a 15-year-old girl.

Venus Romero Iraheta, 18, was convicted of murder in January 2018 in the 2017 slaying of Damaris Reyes Rivas.

She pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, abduction and criminal street participation earlier this year at the court Fairfax County, Virginia.

Prosecutors said Iraheta was one of the 10 MS-13 members and associates who met Damaris at Lake Accotink Park in Fairfax County, seeking revenge for the murder of her boyfriend, Christian Sosa Rivas. Reyes Rivas was a student at Watkins Mill High School in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Earlier this year, an interrogation video recorded on Valentine’s Day 2017 showing her confessing to the crime.

Through a translator, Iraheta said she told Reyes Rivas: “‘You’re going to remember me until the day we see each other in hell. Don’t forget my name.’ And I told her my full name and I told her my nickname. And I told it to her and I told her to never forget who I was. I told her, ‘Someday, we were going to see each other again.’”

When an officer asked what happened next, Iraheta replied in English: “I killed her.”

Iraheta said she stabbed Reyes Rivas about 13 times with a knife and sliced off one of her tattoos. The Washington Post reported another MS-13 associated stabbed her with a tree branch. The brutal slaying was recorded on a cellphone video and the court was shown the footage. Her body was eventually discovered after it was dumped under a highway overpass on the outskirts of Washington, D.C.

Maria Reyes, Reyes Rivas’ mother, told Iraheta in court Friday that the woman “destroyed” her life, the Washington Post reported.

“I want to say to this young lady that she destroyed my life. She destroyed the life of my daughter. She didn’t owe anything to you,” she told Iraheta through a translator. “My daughter is not in hell, as she said. She’s in heaven. She has shown me that in my dreams. . . . Hell will be lived by you, not by her.”

NBC Washington reported Iraheta cried in court, saying she would “give my life to bring her back. I am sorry.”

Sunday Devotional: Beware of scribes decked out in finery

Mark 12:38-40

In the course of his teaching Jesus said to the crowds,
“Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes
and accept greetings in the marketplaces,
seats of honor in synagogues,
and places of honor at banquets.
They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext
recite lengthy prayers.
They will receive a very severe condemnation.”

Accusations of 88-year-old Cardinal McCarrick’s sexual abuse include:

  • Fondling an 11-year-old boy over 40 years ago when McCarrick was a priest in Manhattan, New York. The victim, now a mature man, says the sexually abusive relationship continued for two more decades. (NY Post)
  • Groping and having sex with seminarians: Six priests of the Archdiocese of Newark said that when then-Archbishop of Newark McCarrick visited the seminary, he “would often place his hand on seminarians while talking with them, or on their thighs while seated near them.” One of the priests said McCarrick “had a type: tall, slim, intelligent – but no smokers” and that McCarrick would invite young men to stay at his house on the shore or spend the night in the cathedral rectory in central Newark. Another priest, who was an aide to New York Cardinal Terence Cooke in the early 1970s, said McCarrick’s “reputation” was already well-established by that time, and that a classmate of McCarrick, the dean of a theology school, knew about the rumors and spoke about them with the other faculty and theologians very openly.” So well-known was McCarrick’s reputation that a “standing joke” was that when McCarrick visited the seminary, they had to “hide the handsome ones” before he arrived. Another priest, who worked in close proximity to then-Archbishop McCarrick in the chancery, said: “Priests would tell me ‘he’s sleeping with them’ all the time, but I couldn’t believe it – they seemed like perfectly normal guys.” Seminarians and priests from ordination classes spanning 30 years during the terms of McCarrick and his successor, Archbishop John Myers, said there was an active homosexual subculture of priests and seminarians within Newark’s Immaculate Conception Seminary. (Catholic News Agency)

Despite McCarrick’s well-known reputation of groping and “sleeping with” seminarians, the Vatican promoted him to the cardinalate and to archbishop of Washington, DC, in 2001.

On August 31, 2018, Catholic News Service, the news agency of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, published a 2006 letter from then-Archbishop Leonardo Sandri confirming that the Vatican had received information in 2000 about the sexual misconduct of McCarrick. Sandri’s letter lends credibility to accusations of a cover-up of McCarrick’s deeds at the highest echelons of the Roman Catholic Church. (New York Post)

Although McCarrick’s pedophilia had been known for some time, Pope Francis covered up for McCarrick, ignored the sanctions that Pope Benedict XVI had imposed on McCarrick, and even made McCarrick a trusted counselor in U.S. clerical appointments, including the promotion of far-Left bishops such as Blase Cupich of Chicago and Joseph Tobin of Newark to the College of Cardinals.

On July 28, 2018, after shielding Cardinal McCarrick, Pope Francis “accepted” the former Archbishop of Washington, DC’s offer to resign from the College of Cardinals, and ordered the cardinal’s suspension from the exercise of any public ministry, pending “accusations made against him are examined in a regular canonical trial.” (The Remnant)

Michael Stone reports for Patheos, Oct. 3, 2014, that police found more than 100,000 child porn videos and photos on the computer of former Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski in his office at the Holy See diplomatic compound in the Dominican Republic. Wesolowski was the Vatican’s papal nuncio or ambassador in Santo Domingo.

Wesolowski was also accused of raping numerous children in the Dominican Republic and Poland, and suspected of having sexually abused children while serving in other posts during his career — in South Africa, Costa Rica, Japan, Switzerland, India and Denmark.

After being publicly accused of procuring child prostitutes in 2013, Vatican officials secretly removed Wesolowski from his post as papal nuncio in Santo Domingo so as to avoid criminal prosecution. In September 2014, Weslowski was placed under house arrest at the Vatican in response to popular outrage after reports began to circulate that the accused child rapist was free to wander the streets of Rome. Authorities in both the Dominican Republic and Poland — Wesolowski’s country of origin where he has also been accused of sexually abusing children — wanted him extradicted to face criminal charges.

According to Vatican detectives, some of the horrors found on the former Archbishop’s computer included around 160 videos showing teenage boys forced to perform sexual acts on themselves and on adults, and more than 86,000 pornographic photos methodically archived in several category-based folders. At least another 45,000 pictures were deleted, while even more child pornography was found on a laptop Wesolowski used during his trips abroad.

Wesolowski was charged with sexually abusing minors and child porn possession; if convicted, he would face 12 years in jail. Scheduled for July 11, 2015, his trial was postponed because of an “unexpected illness”. On August 27, 2015, Wesołowski was found dead in his residence from a heart attack. (Wikipedia)

The New York Post reports that on June 22, 2017, Australian police charged Cardinal George Pell — Pope Francis’ chief financial adviser and Australia’s most senior Catholic — with multiple counts of “historical sexual assault offenses,” meaning offenses that generally occurred some time ago. Police gave no other details.

Pell, the highest-ranking Vatican official to ever be charged in the church’s long-running sexual abuse scandal, had also been accused of mishandling cases of clergy abuse when he was archbishop of Melbourne and, later, Sydney. He has denied all abuse allegations.

In late June, 2017, Vatican police raided a cocaine-fueled gay-sex party at the apartment of Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, 49. Capozzi is the secretary of one of Pope Francis’ key advisers and president of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio.

After neighbors complained repeatedly about constant comings and goings of visitors to the building during all hours of the night, Vatican police raided the apartment and found multiple men engaged in rampant drug use and homosexual activity. Police arrested Capozzi, whom Italian media called an “ardent supporter of Pope Francis,” after taking him to a clinic to detox from the cocaine he’d ingested. Capozzi is now on a spiritual retreat in an undisclosed convent in Italy. Despite his arrest, he is still listed as an active staff member on the website of the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legal Texts.

Capozzi, who on his LinkedIn page calls himself an “expert in canon law and dogmatic theology,” managed to evade suspicion from Italian police by using a BMW luxury car with license plates of the Holy See, which made him practically immune to stops and searches. This privilege, usually reserved for high-ranking prelates, allowed the monsignor to transport cocaine for his frequent homosexual orgies without being stopped by the Italian police.

In response to the news of the police raid, Pope Francis decided to “accelerate” the retirement of Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio. At age 79, Coccopalmerio is way beyond the age of retirement of 75, but was kept on by Francis. Incredibly, Coccopalmerio had recommended Capozzi for a promotion to bishop, despite Capozzi’s previous alleged drug overdoses.

Coccopalmerio, as President of the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legal Texts, is the Vatican’s top canonical official and one of Pope Francis’ closest collaborators and ardent supporters. Earlier this year, the Vatican’s publishing house released with much fanfare a book by Coccopalmeiro that defended Francis’s Amoris Laetitia, even though it contradicts traditional Catholic teaching. In a 2014 interview with Rossoporpora, Coccopalmerio said that while homosexual relationships are deemed “illicit” by the Church, Catholic leaders, such as himself, must “emphasize” the “positive realities” that he said are present in homosexual relationships:

“But if I see that the two persons truly love each other, do acts of charity to those in need, for example … then I can also say that, although the relationship remains illicit, positive elements also emerge in the two persons. Instead of closing our eyes to such positive realities, I emphasize them.”

In November 2018, a highly-placed Vatican source with direct knowledge, who must remain anonymous for fear of reprisal, tells LifeSite that Pope Francis knows of Coccopalmerio’s presence at the cocaine homosexual “party”.

In March 2017, reports surfaced that Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, in 2007 when he was a diocesan bishop, had commissioned a homosexual artist to paint a gigantic blasphemous homoerotic mural in his cathedral church of the Diocese of Terni-Narni-Amelia in Umbria, central Italy.

The mural that covers the opposite side of the façade of the church portrays Jesus carrying nets to heaven filled with writhing naked and semi-nude homosexuals, transsexuals, prostitutes, and drug dealers. The image of the archbishop himself is depicted among those in the nets.

Not coincidentally, Paglia also defended Pope Francis’ Amoris Laetitia on allowing adulterers and others living in mortal sin receive the Eucharist, which reinforces the suspicion of many that the real intent of Amoris Laetitia ultimately is to legitimate homosexuality.

Meanwhile, the AP reports on February 25, 2017 that, ignoring advice from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, “Pope Francis has quietly reduced sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests, applying his vision of a merciful church even to its worst offenders in ways that survivors of abuse and the pope’s own advisers question.”

Jeremiah 23:1-2

Woe to the shepherds
who mislead and scatter the flock of my pasture,
says the LORD.
Therefore, thus says the LORD . . .
against the shepherds who shepherd my people:
You have scattered my sheep and driven them away.
You have not cared for them,
but I will take care to punish your evil deeds.

Jesus, I love You with my whole heart, my whole soul, my whole mind, and with all my strength.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Supreme Court justice Ginsburg rushed to hospital; Demonrats offer to donate their ribs

Although last Tuesday’s mid-term elections saw the Demonrat Party gain majority control of the House of Representatives (225 to 197), a saving grace was that the GOP retained control of the Senate (52 to 46), and even gained at least another seat.

That means not only will President Trump not be impeached, he will have the Senate’s support in his judicial nominations, including to the Supreme Court in addition to the two justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, in less than two years.

That is why the Left are terrified.

So bloodthirsty are they to preserve women’s right to murder tiny, unborn human persons that Demonrats actually flocked to offer their ribs and other organs to SCOTUS justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who was rushed this morning to the George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C. after fracturing three ribs from a fall.

Hollyweirdo Alyssa Milano, 45, who exposed her sagging boobs in a low-cut blouse at the September 27 Kavanaugh Senate hearing, tweeted:

Ruth Bader Ginsberg can have my ribs. And my kidneys and a lung. And anything else she needs. She can even have my husband on Thursdays.

There were offers from other Demonrats:

Dear Justice Ginsberg, I am so happy to hear that you’re going to serve until you’re 90. If you need any organs during that time or any blood donations ( I am A+) I’m your girl.

— Suzanne Iorio (@Suzann1111) July 30, 2018

I would give Ruth Bader Ginsberg any of my vital organs at this point, before or after my death.

— Kathryn Nichols (@katnicho7608) July 30, 2018

I stand by my offer to donate any and all of my organs to Ruth Bater Ginsberg whenever she needs them

— z’oy (@zschatt) June 30, 2018

One Demonrat even offered to donate all of its organ to Ginsburgh even if it is still alive (note: I use the pronoun “it” to avoid being cisgender):

I have changed my organ donor status so that now all of my organs go to Ruth Bader Ginsberg EVEN IF I AM STILL ALIVE.

We need her now more than ever

I love you RBG.

— Planet Resist (@PlanetResist) July 10, 2018

Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement:

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell in her office at the Court last evening. She went home, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, went to George Washington University Hospital earlier this morning. Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side and she was admitted for observation and treatment.

According to Breitbart, the extent of Ginsburg’s injury was not clear at press time. Rib fractures are common among older adults, particularly after falls. The severity depends in part on whether the ribs are cracked or broken all the way through, and how many are broken.

85-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg had already had two bouts of cancer: colon cancer in 1999; pancreatic cancer in 2009. Cancer is prevalent in her family. (The Hill)

Another elderly Supreme Court justice is Stephen Breyer. Generally associated with liberals on the court, he is 80. Based on Centers for Disease Control life tables, the odds of Ginsburg and Breyer dying by 2021 are, respectively, 36.34% and 26.45%. (Source: Slate)

Then there’s Justice Sonia Sotomayor, 64, who has Type-1 diabetes. In January 2018, she had a “health episode” stemming from her diabetes. Paramedics were called to her Washington, D.C. home to treated her for low blood-sugar symptoms.

According to a Scottish study published in the Jan. 6, 2015 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, people with type 1 diabetes have a lower life-expectancy, despite improved treatment of the disease and its complications. Men with type 1 diabetes lose about 11 years of life expectancy compared to men without the disease; women with type 1 diabetes have their lives cut short by about 13 years. (WebMD)

Meanwhile, yesterday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said his “top priority” for the rest of the year and into the new Congress is filling the judiciary with President Trump’s judicial nominees:

“The president, I think, has done an excellent job in picking young men and women who believe the job of the judge is to follow the law and we intend to keep confirming as many as we possibly can as long as we are in a position to do it. It’ll still be my top priority in setting the agenda here in the Senate.”

McConnell also said the Senate has been successful in making two Supreme Court appointments and 29 circuit judges, adding that, “we’re not through doing those this year.”

John G. Malcolm, vice president of the Institute for Constitutional Government and director of the Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at The Heritage Foundation, said President Trump has appointed a record number of highly-qualified judges to the federal courts of appeal, and that his judicial appointments may well be the most enduring legacy of his administration.

According to Mark Taylor, the firefighter prophet who claims God speaks to him and had predicted the presidency of Donald John Trump on April 28, 2011, said Trump will get to appoint five Supreme Court justices during his tenure as president. On February 16, 2016, “Do Not Fear America,” Taylor prophesied:

“The Spirit of God says, ‘5, that’s right, 5 Supreme Court Justices will be appointed by my new president, my anointed. I will choose 5 through my anointed to keep those alive.

I will stack the court with those that I choose, to send a clear message to the enemy, that you lose! This is the miracle that I will perform, so that MY COURT will be reformed.’”

MS-13 gang member sentenced to decades in prison for role in 2015 murder

From Fox News: A member of the violent MS-13 street gang was sentenced Monday to more than 22 years in federal prison for his role in the death of a gang associate suspected of being an informant.

Jose Andrade, 27, also received three years of probation and will be subject to deportation to his native El Salvador upon completion of his sentence, according to federal prosecutors.

Andrade, who went by the nickname “Inocente,” pleaded guilty in March to charges of racketeering conspiracy involving murder and conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

Prosecutors claimed Andrade was involved in planning the July 2015 murder in Lawrence of a teenager who was wrongly suspected by gang members of cooperating with law enforcement. Investigators said Andrade planned to take part in the killing himself, but could not do so because he was arrested the previous month.

Authorities say that Andrade is one of 49 defendants who have been convicted as part of a crackdown on MS-13 by federal, state and local officials. Of those defendants, 16 have been found to have “committed or knowingly participated in murders.”

Facebook took down FOTM just in time for Nov. 6 mid-term election

What I had expected finally happened.

As of last night when I got offline and closed my laptop, Fellowship of the Minds‘ Facebook page was still up.

Ten minutes ago, I discovered that, like rats and cockroaches that come out cloaked in the darkness of night, the Demonrats of Facebook took down FOTM.

This is the message when I tried to access our page:

Recall that in the darkness of the early morning hours of August 15, 2018, our former hosting server WordPress burned down FOTM.

It took us eight days before we restored FOTM with a non-U.S. hosting server. See:

When WordPress took us down, I had asked our readers to send me their email addresses so that we could maintain contact before the restoration of FOTM. I compiled a list of hundreds of email addresses, many of which are those of our Facebook readers.

I expect Twitter will censor by banning FOTM as well.

So if you are a (former) Facebook reader or Twitter reader  of FOTM, please bookmark FOTM or subscribe to FOTM and leave Facebook and Twitter. Surely, you don’t really want to associate with a corporation that censors our U.S. Constitution First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

To subscribe for email notifications of new posts, just scroll down our page until you see “SUBSCRIBE TO BLOG VIA EMAIL” on the right. Then type your email address in the box, and click “Subscribe”.

Go vote for America!

From Wayne Allyn Root’s “Vegas Oddsmaker Predicts GOP Upset,” Townhall, Nov. 5, 2018:

This is my final column before the midterm election. So, this former Vegas oddsmaker turned national political commentator has a few predictions and common sense observations to make.

Back in 2016 I predicted a Trump victory when no one else did. Every poll showed Trump would lose by a wide margin. Nate Silver of the NY Times predicted Hillary’s chances of winning at 92%. These pollsters make their living by polling actual human beings. I don’t. So how did I know?

Simple. First, size matters. You could see it in the rallies. Trump would attract eight hour lines and 10,000 or more attendees at wild, intense rallies all over America. I should know. I was opening speaker for six Trump campaign events here in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile Hillary was attracting 100 to 200 attendees at a rally here in Vegas. I could fit Hillary’s rallies in my living room.  The same story held true across America. That was my first reason for realizing Trump was going to pull a huge upset that few saw coming.

Part Duex was also simple. Trump was “the whisper candidate.” Everywhere I went, people whispered in my ear, “I’m with you. I’m for Trump.” They wouldn’t tell pollsters. They wouldn’t put up yard signs. No bumper stickers on their car. No mention of their support of Trump around the office watercooler. But they whispered to me. The pollsters never had a chance.

Don’t look now, but it’s all happening again. Nate Silver says Democrats have a 80%+ chance of winning the House. Cook Report says Democrats will win the House by 40 seats. All the experts say it’s over- Democrats will win. I’ll go out on a limb and disagree again.

I see Florida Democrat Governor candidate Andrew Gillum holding a rally with Bernie Sanders and the whole place is empty.

Barack Obama could not fill a high school gym in Milwaukee.

I witnessed firsthand Joe Biden and Obama at separate events here in Las Vegas playing to small crowds.

Meanwhile I was opening speaker for President Trump’s event in Las Vegas last month- with 10,000 waiting in line for hours in a place where no one cares much about politics. This is a phenomenon.

Does that sound like the GOP is losing 40 seats? Dream on delusional Democrats.

Then there’s “the whispers.” Nothing has changed. Trump has fulfilled almost all of his campaign promises. He is the only politician in history who did exactly what he promised. And those same voters are whispering to me again- they love Trump now, more than ever.

Then there’s common sense. The Trump economy is BOOMING.

The latest results are out- 250,000 more jobs last month, far above what was expected. The lowest unemployment in half a century. The number of Americans employed is the highest EVER. Almost 500,000 new manufacturing jobs under Trump. The kind Obama claimed would never happen again. 1000 new manufacturing jobs a day last month- the best results since the 1990’s.

And most importantly, wages grew by a remarkable 3.1%- the most in a decade. Who in their right mind would vote against THAT?

That could be why Trump’s approval rating among blacks is now 40%. If only white liberals weren’t blind, deaf and really dumb.

Most importantly, Trump has brilliantly kept the emotional issue of illegal immigration front and center. He wants to block the caravan, end birthright citizenship and make it much harder for illegal aliens to claim asylum. The polls are out- 65% of likely voters in swing districts across the USA agree with Trump. The middle class will come out in record numbers for Trump. Bet on it.

In the 2014 midterm election in Texas 1.7 million voted early. This year early voting in Texas numbered over 4.3 million. With a booming economy and an illegal alien invasion in the headlines, you think they’re coming out for Democrats?

No way Jose.

I’ll go out on a limb again. I’ll put my gut instincts up against every poll and pollster and political “expert.” All of them…all of them…say the House is lost. But they don’t have a clue what’s happening. I predict they’re all wrong again. The Silent Majority is whispering again- and they love Trump. They support Trump. They will reward Trump.

I’ll go out on a limb again to predict another upset for the GOP on Tuesday. We will expand our Senate majority by 3 to 6 seats. It will be very close but, the GOP will hold the House. America stays bright red- again

Democrats will be in shock and mourning. The pollsters got it all wrong again.

And Wednesday morning will be the busiest day for psychiatrists and psychologists in the history of America.

Remember this?

Satanists at Trump inauguration protest, Washingon, DC

And this?

Satanists at Trump inauguration protest, DC

And this?

Pro-gun control “March for Our Lives” demonstration in Washington, DC, March 24, 2018

Be confident, patriots.

Go forth and vote to take our beloved country back from the hate-America, no-border fake-news media jackals, Hollyweirdos, globalists, and satanists.

Pray for America.

Garbage: “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” underage orgy scene on Netflix

From Fox News: The popular Netflix series “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” is marketed to young teenage girls, tied to a family friendly comic franchise and billed as a modern reboot of the harmless “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” so when viewers were bombarded with a steamy orgy scene featuring underage characters, some parents and critics were shocked.

Kiernan Shipka, who is best known for her role as Sally Draper on the AMC hit “Mad Men,” portrays the 16-year-old witch in the young adult series, but the intimate scene in “Sabrina” is about as provocative as anything infamous womanizer Don Draper ever participated in on screen.

The orgy scene – set to Fiona Apple’s “Criminal” – appears in the seventh episode of the series and features half-a-dozen scantily clad teens in Sabrina’s house. When the 16-year-old namesake character is hesitant to join in, she’s mocked for “killing the mood” and told to either “get in, or get out.”

The raunchy scene sent viewers scrambling to social media slamming it as “uncomfortable” and inappropriate.

Family Research Council’s senior fellow Peter Sprigg told Fox News that “Sabrina” is not suitable for its target audience.

“Taking once-wholesome comic book characters and turning them into sinister and hyper-sexualized TV characters is a troubling trend in itself. The dark, occultish elements in ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ provide reason enough for parents to keep their children — including teens — far away from this show,” Sprigg said. “The show has gone over the top in depicting an actual orgy on screen, and if they think having the teen participants keep their underwear on makes it all right, the writers and producers need to think again. This content is not appropriate for anyone, but especially not for the teen audience it targets.”

Netflix and Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s other series, CW’s “Riverdale,” also features a similarly uncomfortable striptease hot tub scene with characters who are underage.Sabrina” is billed as a companion series to the CW hit, which has been criticized for similar provocative content. “Riverdale” is also based on an Archie comic, but both of Aguirre-Sacasa’s shows have ditched the wholesome family values of the original intellectual property.

A spokesperson for Aguirre-Sacasa did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and “Riverdale” are hardly the first two shows to sexualize teens, as The CW’s “Gossip Girl,” Freeform’s “Pretty Little Liars” and a variety of MTV programs are recent examples. Most cases involve adult-age actors playing teens in order to get away with erotic storylines — with “Sabrina” being no exception. However, some media gurus feel things are getting worse in the modern era of prestige TV.

“It’s ill-advised for Netflix to go down this road given the climate. With no advertisers to answer to, it seems they’ll take the controversy and press it will generate over any kind of subscriber backlash,” The Hill’s media reporter Joe Concha told Fox News.

Media Research Center Vice president Dan Gainor criticized Netflix as “woke TV,” pointing to “Sabrina” as an example of why parents must proceed with caution before allowing children access to the streaming giant.

This depraved show promotes teen sex and witchcraft. Parents need to know that’s what their kids might be watching when they tune in Netflix,” Gainor told Fox News.

Commercial artist Troy Riser was among the outspoken critics on social media, sending numerous tweets condemning Netflix for the “orgy scene” and even declaring that “traditional kid-friendly brands such as the Archie Comics universe should not be used to market softcore porn.” Riser’s children are adults now, but when reached by Fox News he explained that he’s concerned for today’s youth.

“Packaging adult entertainment in a traditionally family-friendly brand is pretty disturbing stuff,” Riser told Fox News. “I’m thinking more about children in general — young girls in particular — who would gravitate to a show about ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch,’ a show many parents would naturally think would be kid-safe given their own memories of Archie comics and the G-rated Melissa Joan Hart show several years ago.”

Report: Priest pedophilia is on the rise again, linked to homosexuality

On Nov. 2, 2018, Louisiana-based Ruth Institute released a study, Is Catholic clergy sex abuse related to homosexual priests?.

The Ruth Institute was founded in 2008 by Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, an economics-trained author and writer on marriage, family and human sexuality who was the spokesperson for Proposition 8, the California ballot measure defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman which was passed by voters but nixed by an activist judge. Far-left groups including the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, and Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) have criticized the Ruth Institute’s stance against same-sex marriage and other LGBT causes. In Aug. 23, 2017, responding to being labeled a “hate group” by SPLC, the Ruth Institute said it “categorically condemns white supremacy, racism, Nazism, and all violent totalitarian political movements. People who cannot defend their positions using reason and evidence resort to name-calling to change the subject away from their anemic arguments. The ‘hate group’ label is a club such people invented to bludgeon their political opponents.”

The study was conducted by Ruth Institute senior research associate Dr./ Rev. D. Paul Sullins — a recently retired Catholic University of America sociology professor who is a leader in the field of research on same-sex parenting and its implications for child development, with four books, including Keeping the Vow: The Untold Story of Married Catholic Priests, and over 100 journal articles, research reports, and essays on issues of family, faith, and culture. He is a former Episcopal priest, married for 30 years with three children, who was ordained to the Catholic priesthood in 2002. He is Associate Pastor of the Church of Saint Mark the Evangelist, Hyattsville, MD.

The study addresses a common question: Is the sex abuse related in any way to homosexual men in the priesthood? It has been reviewed by several scholars, including four social scientists, and will be included in an upcoming book.

Methdology

For his study, Dr. Sullins employed data from the following sources to compute correlations:

Findings

(1) Catholic clergy mainly prey on boys: Whereas two-thirds of victims in U.S. sex abuse of minors are girls, the vast majority of clergy sex abuse victims — over 8 in 10 victims — were boys. As girls became more prevalent as altar servers, abusers of boys “responded to the presence of fewer younger boys primarily by turning to older boys, not to female victims.” Comparable reports in Germany indicate that up to 90% of abuse victims of Catholic clergy have been male, compared to about half of victims in Protestant or non-religious settings in that country.

(2) By comparing the share of homosexual Catholic priests with the incidence and victim gender of minor sex abuse victims by Catholic priests from 1950 to 2001, the study found a strong correlation between sexual abuse of minors and two factors:

(a) A disproportionate number of homosexual clergy:

The study found that the increase in the number of homosexual men in the priesthood is “almost perfectly” correlated with more overall abuse and more boys abused compared to girls. The correlation is 0.98, where a correlation of 1.0 is an absolute positive correlation. That means that the number of child victims increased at almost the same rate as the percentage of homosexual priests — the greater the percentage of homosexual priests, the greater the number of child, mainly male, victims. While the correlation was lower among victims under age 8, it was still strong, at 0.77. Researchers usually consider correlation association above 0.3 or 0.4 to be a strong effect.

However, in Sullins’ words, “Although over 8 in 10 of victims have been boys, the idea that the abuse is related to homosexual men in the priesthood has not been widely accepted by Church leaders.”

It is not the simple presence of homosexual men in the priesthood that is the correlative factor. Sullins said in a press conference on November 2 that “when homosexual men were represented in the priesthood at about the same rate as they were in the population, there was no measurable problem of child sex abuse. It was only when you had a preponderance of homosexual men.

The percentage of homosexual men in the general population is estimated at 2%. Beginning in the 1950s, the percentage of homosexuals in the priesthood increased from 4% to 16% by the 1980s, eight times the percentage in the general population. From 1965 to 1995 an average of at least one in five priests ordained annually were homosexual, a concentration which drove the overall proportion of homosexual men in the priesthood up to 16%, or one in six priests, by the late 1990s. Dr. Sullins said, “When you get up to 16% of priests that are homosexual, and you’ve got eight times the proportion of homosexuals as you do in the general population, it’s as if the priesthood becomes a particularly welcoming and enabling and encouraging population for homosexual activity and behavior.

If the proportion of homosexual priests had remained at the 1950s level, at least 12,000 fewer children, mostly boys, would have suffered abuse.

(b) A homosexual subculture in seminaries:

The presence of homosexual subcultures in seminaries, as reported by priests considering their own seminary life, accounts for about half the incidence of abuse, but not among heterosexual men. Sullins said that homosexual subcultures encourage those who may have been attracted to male victims to act out more than would have been the case otherwise. Seminary candidates have reported about the problems this disproportion creates. Donald Cozzens’ 2000 book, The Changing Face of the Priesthood, has accounts of homosexual students being so prevalent at some seminaries that heterosexual men felt destabilized and disoriented and left.

What all this suggests is that as the number and percentage of homosexual priests and seminarians increased disproportionate to their “natural” incidence in the general population, they become increasingly emboldened to act out pedophile impulses that would otherwise be suppressed or constrained if homosexual priests were fewer.

(3) Clergy sex abuse has declined since the late 1980s, but not because of measures taken by U.S. bishops. While sex abuse by clergy today is “much lower” — by about one third — than 30 years ago, it has not declined “as much as is commonly thought.” Most of the decline since the 1990s is consistent with “a similar general decline in child sex abuse in America since that time,” and is unrelated to the implementation of the U.S. bishops’ 2002 Charter for the Protection of Children and Young Adults.

(4) More alarming still is that after years in decline, Catholic clergy sex abuse is on the rise again. Dr. Sullins said:

“The thing we’ve been told about the sex abuse is that it is somehow very rare and declined to almost nothing today is really not true. I found that clergy sex abuse did drop to almost nothing after 2002, but then it started to creep up. It’s been increasing. And there are signs that the bishops or the dioceses have gotten complacent about that. It’s not at the great heights that it was in the mid-1970s, but it’s rising. And it’s headed in that direction.”

Recommendations

Under Pope Benedict XVI, the Vatican issued a document which says: “the Church, while profoundly respecting the persons in question, cannot admit to the seminary or to holy orders those who practice homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies or support the so-called ‘gay culture’.”

But Dr. Sullins eschews recommending the removal of all homosexuals from the priesthood because he maintains the abuse is not necessarily related to someone’s sexual orientation, citing his knowledge of men with same-sex attraction who are “strong, faithful persons.” What he recommends is a decrease in the number of homosexual priests to reflect their incidence in the general population. This would mean priests are selected for “holiness and commitment to Christ and the things that we would hope would make for a good priest. When you start to get a larger proportion of homosexuals It looks like you are actually selecting for same-sex orientation.”

Meanwhile, more than 130 US bishops — or nearly one-third of those still living — have been accused during their careers of failing to adequately respond to sexual misconduct in their dioceses, according to a Boston Globe and Philadelphia Inquirer examination of court records, media reports, and interviews with church officials, victims, and attorneys.

No wonder the clergy sex abuse of minors is on the rise again.

Israeli TV mocks Jesus Christ as a monkey nailed to a cross

Regular readers of this blog know that in the darkness of the early morning hours of August 15, 2018, WordPress unilaterally and without just cause took down Fellowship of the Minds (FOTM) — the digital equivalence of burning not one book, but an entire library of tens of thousands of blog-posts in nearly nine years of unpaid labor, many of which were the product of original research and investigative journalism that paid “professional” journalists no longer do.

After an interim of 8 days, we restored FOTM with another host server. But all of our pre-takedown posts must be restored, one by one.

Every day, I restore a batch of our pre-takedown posts, but without many of the pics and images, which are lost forever. I found some of the posts in published form, but with a different URL — which is why the links for so many posts are broken. Many other pre-takedown posts are in draft format, each of which must be re-published — which is why email subscribers to FOTM get notifications when the old posts are re-published.

Thus far, I’ve been able to find every old post, either published (with a different URL) or in draft, except two:

  1. Israeli TV mocks Jesus Christ as a monkey nailed to a cross,” July 30, 2017.
  2. Remembering the U.S.S. Liberty — June 8, 1967,” June 10, 2017.

If you click on the above two embedded links, you’ll get the “Not Found” message. I’ll leave you to hypothesize why, of all the hundreds of posts I’ve been able to restore thus far, the above two are the only ones that are disappeared, without a trace.

Fortunately, DC Clothesline re-publishes some of our posts, so I was able to find and republish the Israeli TV post. Here it is!

Israeli TV mocks Jesus Christ as a monkey nailed to a cross

Originally published on July 30, 2017.

John 15:23

“Whoever hates me also hates my Father.”

Toffee and the Gorilla is an Israeli TV show with a bikini-clad young woman named Dawn Rosenzweig as Toffee, and Shuki the monkey-muppet as Gorilla.

This is the description of the show on the Toffee and the Gorilla Facebook page:

It’s a parody of some of the shows on Israeli state Educational TV, especially in the ’60s and ’70s (some of the sketches are even in black and white, for added effect). The messages are unashamedly racist (against Arabs, Mizrahim, Christians, etc.), chauvinist and violent, holding up a mirror to Israeli society as it were (albeit from a safe distance – placing such attitudes somewhere in the past). The show’s creator describes its political orientation as ‘socialist-pacifist’.

Note: Mizrahim are Mizrahi Jews, also called Oriental or Sephardic Jews. Unlike Ashkenazi Jews — who make up 90% of Jews in the world and are descended from European Jews who, in turn, descended from Turkic Khazars in the Caucasus who had converted to Judaism in the 8th century — Mizrahi/Sephardic Jews descended from local Jewish communities of the Middle East from biblical times into the modern era. In other words, unlike the Ashkenazi fake Jews, Mizrahi Jews may actually be biological descendants of the ancient Hebrews.

In an episode, which was uploaded to Toffee and the Gorilla‘s Facebook page on March 24, 2016, but to YouTube on April 23, 2012, Rosenzweig/Toffee mocks Jesus Christ’s crucifixion by nailing Gorilla to a cross. Note that the Hebrew-to-English translation appears to have been provided by the TV show.

Here are the video’s English subtitles:

Toffee: “Shalom. You’ve made it to the history program of Toffee and the Gorilla. I came to talk about the highlights of the history of the Jewish people, from times past until today. Today, we will learn about the crucifixion of Yeshu [Jesus]. Have you heard about Yeshu?”

Gorilla, nodding his head: “I’ve heard he’s an honorable person.”

Toffee: “No, Yeshu was an enemy of the Jewish people. He attempted to convert us all into Christians. Although there are good Christians, to the Jew this is a terrible danger, a threat to the peace of the Jewish people.”

Gorilla: “I want to assimilate.”

Toffee: “Do you even know what it is to be assimilated? It means to get fucked up with a goyah: this is something neither I or you, obviously, want.”

Gorilla: “I want my children to eat Toblerone [chocolate] and become goyim. I am bored here, Toffee! I want to live in Switzerland with a goyah and eat Toblerone all day long!”

Toffee: “Okay, darling. If you love Yeshu so much, you will have to play Yeshu.”

Toffee says, facing the camera: “I am Judas Iscariot.”

Gorilla: “I want for all to become Christians and eat pork and Toblerone and have fun! Do you, the viewers at home, want to?”

Toffee: “Because of this, I will crucify you! How dare you preach to the innocent Jews?”

Toffee then nails Gorilla’s left hand to a cross.

Gorilla screams: “My God, why have you forsaken me?”

Toffee: “You are a Nazi, Yeshu. You are a Nazi!”

Toffee hammers the nail into Gorilla’s hand.

Gorilla screams, while writhing: “Toffee! No, Toffee! I am scared! I walked on the water, I transformed crickets into cake! No, I am not Yeshu! This is a mistake! I am Moses, our teacher. Do not thrust with nails. Toffee, no!”

Toffee: “It’s only one nail, you coward.”

Gorilla screams: “Nooooo! Oh Toffee! Oh God, no! Aaahhhh! Aaaahhh! Ay ah! No, no, no!” — as Toffee strikes Gorilla’s body with the hammer.

Gorilla makes one last scream, then lowers his head, makes two death throes, and “dies”.

Tim King, editor of Salem-News.comwrote on April 23, 2011:

So, a slutty Israeli TV show features a chick in a skimpy bikini mocking Jesus Christ by showing him as a stupid looking monkey hanging on a cross. Then using the ‘f’ word, she proceeds to tell Jewish viewers that Christians, we ‘goyam’, are ‘dangerous’ toward Jews. From there, it gets much worse.

We aren’t making this up; this is Israeli television being widely viewed today. The show is called, ‘The History Program of Toffee the Gorilla’. Anyone who advocates for this should not write a comment, instead they should consider ripping their heart out and sticking it in a jar; (it would have equal purpose and someday doctors could study it and perhaps determine what the hell is wrong with you)….

Welcome to Israel, where American tax dollars support this kind of scummy broadcast.

Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $134.7 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding. Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic assistance.

Shocker, not: Glamour “Women of the Year” are rabid anti-2A, TDS-infected progressives

The media continue their all-out attempt to push progressive narratives ahead of the mid-terms. Case in point: Glamour magazine has published their annual “Women of Year” issue and it includes several TDS-infected libtards.

From their article:

“In the 28 years that we’ve celebrated Women of the Year—both in our pages and at our annual summit and awards ceremony—the stories of our honorees often start with the same idea: a woman that refuses to wait for someone else to make things better. Alone, or with an army behind her, she decides to act.”

Honorees include:

Kamala Harris: The California senator who loves abortion and illegal aliens once joked about killing President Trump.

Chrissy Teigen: The anti-everything Trump model has a garbage mouth and calls for civility yet routinely trashes people on Twitter.

The Women Activists of March for Our Lives: These teenagers apparently “demanded change” and “won’t take no for an answer.”

What change exactly did they achieve?

Did they see that the Broward Coward sheriffs were held responsible for their inactions? Did they hold Sheriff Scott Israel responsible for his ineffective leadership? Did they see that the FBI was responsible for their inaction on the tips about the Parkland shooter?

Sure, some new gun laws were passed in Florida. Exactly how many school shootings have these new gun laws prevented?

Rather all these activists did was trash the NRA, Dana Loesch and responsible gun owners. As a result of their activism, NRA membership dramatically increased.

What a bunch of liberal garbage Glamour magazine is promoting.
