Treating sexually active priests

A psychologist who treats priests was not  surprised by continuing revelations of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. But there was something that surprised him:

“It was a surprise for me to see how many psychopaths I met in the priesthood,” Dr. Leslie Lothstein said. “Glib, callous, could say anything to you and be charming.”

Wini – precisely. Man’s perversion of a good message in order to mete out control and dominance.

Here is some of the scriptures written in the Bible regarding those that make believe they are teaching the word of God to his sheep, but are falsely preaching for man made reasons. Some do it out of ignorance and others do it on purpose. Even so, they are in big trouble when they meet our father in heaven … Jesus does not like false teachers to lead his sheep (us) astray from His truth (wisdom).

After you read these few scriptures, Jesus already knew and warned us not to listen to man teach man made logic and not His wisdom.

“But there were also false prophets among the people even as there will be false teachers among you. . . 2 Peter 2:1

“For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness. . .” Jude 4

Denominations are ungodly (1 Cor 1:10-13; 3:4).

True pastor expose false teachers of Jesus’ word (John 10:12-13, Ephesians 5:11).

Most churches are led by false teachers (2 Peter 2:1-3).

Now you know why most people don’t hear the word of God. If the word of God is not taught, there is chaos. Look around today and what do you see? Chaos???

Buttons, you are exactly right. However, I wouldn’t want to be any of them standing in front of Jesus because He already knows they did not teach His wisdom to the sheep.

Blogger, it is amazing to me that an adult can be so perverted sexually, but not suprising. I get to where I think I have seen or heard about the lowest thing a human can do and then someone else jumps up and does something even lower, and to a child even.

I watched a link today from the california prison system which is spending zillions of $$ keeping “lifers” inside for REAL LIFE, and how much money it is costing to provide their medical care now that they are a sick 55-65-75 years old (nothing but the BEST medical care mind you!) and using this as an excuse to NOT keep them incarcerated because it will cost too much. DUH!???? OK do they think if we turn them out on the street sick and in a wheel chair that the state won’t STILL have to provide their medical care?

Plus, what is the “return on cost” we have had for the 40 years they have been kept off the street? How many lives saved, how many rapes prevented, how many chidren would they have given birth to or sired to grow up to be another generation of psychopaths?

The interviewer asked one man age 65 who got life for first degree murder when he was in his 20s and asked him if he expected then to STILL be there in prison at this age, and he said “NO, I figured if I did their rehab programs and so on, they’d let me out in a few years.”

Last year in Ca 7303 “lifers” came up for parole, only 294 were granted by the board, and The GOV sent most back for reconsideration, and nixed a bunch of them, and only about 60 actually got parole out of the 7,303 that APPLIED. Like <1%. Yea for California! I never thought I would say they seem to be leading the nation in a good way!!!!! TOWANDA!!!!

At least murder still seems to be a CRIME out there!

I wanted to add a piece here. Another case that is starting to get attention http://tinyurl.com/2u5df25

Basically the story is this:

“After being raped and impregnated by a fellow churchgoer more than twice her age, a 15-year-old Concord girl was forced by Trinity Baptist Church leaders to stand before the congregation to apologize before they helped whisk her out of state, according to the police.”

Dear Blogger,

Thanks, you have “topped” my “list of CHURCHES who rape children emotionally” list for the month of May, fortunately, May is nearly over, so maybe nothing worse will come to my attention.

Actually I think we should bring back the “ducking stool” and the pillory, and possibly branding criminals like this “Church”–yea, isn’t that what JESUS WOULD HAVE DONE? I know that that group of pious folks just made Jesus PROUD of how they handled this poor girl! Maybe we could just burn a cross on the parking lot, or maybe just burn the building, but then we would be just 1/1000th as bad as those folks are! UGH!!!!!!
