Church Treasurer Plays Robin Hood with Tithe Money
Steal from the rich and give to the por-nstar.
Pennsylvania church treasurer Glenn E. Yothers has been arrested for stealing $150,000 over the span of four years from the church he worked at… and blowing his (stolen) wad on the website “Flirt 4 Free.”
Right-wing pastor Shane Vaughn went on a sexist rant against Meghan Markle — he referred to her as “Jezebel” — mocking her mental health by calling her a narcissist who “loves herself too much to kill herself.”
The city of Monument, Colorado helped a Boy Scout install an overtly Christian monument dedicated to U.S. soldiers in a public cemetery leading the Military Religious Freedom Foundation to call foul in a letter to the city.
It is simply unconstitutional for your Town to be using taxpayer funds to promote any religious faith, as herein, Christianity.
The obviously and incontrovertibly sectarian, Christian proselytizing message of that Veterans Memorial would be absolutely fine in a private cemetery, but in a publicly maintained and controlled cemetery, as in this instant matter, it is quite unconstitutional and illegal.
Accordingly, Mayor Wilson, MRFF demands that you immediately remedy these noxious unconstitutional and DoD regulation violations by either expeditiously removing that memorial or altering its current unconstitutional Christian proselytizing message to comply with the United States Constitution’s First Amendment (No Establishment Clause) and DoD regulations regarding trademark and licensing mandates.
Christian real estate agent Leigh Ann Bauman, who took out a hit on her ex-mother-in-law, planned to “go to church and ask for forgiveness after it was done.” Bauman planned out her saintly reputation one step ahead of the murder plot by receiving a public baptism that was published on the social media of Missouri’s Lake Ozark Christian Church.
We have finally received a trickle of information regarding what “moral failure” caused Canadian apologist Sye Ten Bruggencate to suddenly shut down his ministry. If you assumed the offense was sexual in natural — as we always do when a sanctimonious character is involved — you were on the right track.
The church that’s now taking control of him released this statement:
Following admissions by Sye ten Bruggencate of fornication with a vulnerable woman, and following a formal complaint (with evidence) by the woman concerning the particular admissions given by Sye, the Session has begun a full and thorough investigation.
Sye has been suspended from all privileges without limit of time while the church judicial process is followed.
A Canadian judge has denied bail to Pastor James Coates of Edmonton’s GraceLife Church, ordering him to remain in prison until his trial for refusing to comply with precautions designed to halt the spread of COVID-19.
Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver is trying his damnedest to speed up natural selection by urging conservative Christians to avoid “the so-called ‘vaccines’ against COVID-19.” Staver stokes fear of the vaccine by drawing attention to the prophylactic’s “unknown safety and efficacy,” as if evidence is a game changer to this demographic. Nearly 530,000 U.S. citizens have died of the COVID-19 virus so far and that’s not evidence enough for these people to wear masks and just attend church via livestream.
