John Raymond, a MAGA cultist who allegedly stopped a kid from breathing "to the point of him going limp, won a coveted endorsement
Children are their greatest treasure as long as the children are immediately obedient and perfectly compliant. If not, they’re deserving of physical assault and battery.
And if the children are LGBT? They deserve death.
This is the GOP party line, it doesn’t matter if Gallé is the perfect candidate and could win the election easily, Raymond is who they want for his history of being exactly what they want. It’s a travesty that he’s being prosecuted and persecuted for being a righteous Christian.
“A man who proves every day that you can get away with anything in this country if you shove the word ‘Reverend’ in front of your name.”
Let's tape his head and tape his mouth shut. And then rip that tape off. Wanna bet he'd claimed HE'D been harmed and that the taping was cruel?
Once people convince themselves they're operating under divine sanction, they're capable of just about any horror. This hate-filled monster uses his putrid religiosity as a justification for his cruelty. I'm a little surprised one or more of the parents of the children he abused didn't take matters into their own hands, and beat him to a bloody pulp.
“Our children are our greatest treasure.”
Translation: They are only children until they are born, then they become little sinners.
So what I'm hearing is that this guy is an industry standard pastor.
Physically abusing children? Does he think he's a nun?
Phenomenal. If THIS is the kind of person Slidell, Louisiana wants representing them, then I shudder to think of the constituents who apparently approve of the endorsement of John Raymond. It also makes me wonder what Slidell parents think about their kids and whether or not the local bookstore is sold out of copies of T̲o̲ ̲T̲r̲a̲i̲n̲ ̲U̲p̲ ̲A̲ ̲C̲h̲i̲l̲d̲.
I feel sorry for the kids. The rest of the town can go to hell, for all of me.
"I feel it's important people who hold conservative Christian principles hold positions to create laws to direct our state properly."
You want to hold a position in the State House, yet you are ignorant of what Article 6, Clause 3 of the US Constitution (a document you would be swearing to support and defend) has to say about religious tests for public office.
Direct your state properly? You are already the 3rd-most religious state in the country behind Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama (the latter two are tied for first). You are the 6th-most conservative state in the country behind South Dakota, West Virginia, Wyoming, Alabama and Mississippi.
Yet despite all those conservative Christian principles, you are ranked dead last as "Best State to Live In." Maybe it's time for kkkonservative kkkristians to step away from public office and let secularists take the reins. Besides, your bible tells you to concentrate on things above, not earthly things. Or do you not read your bible?
Louisiana! Seriously, what is wrong with you!*
*I know, I know, wide brush, painting, sloppily.
Let me guess: He's pro-life, right?
"(The party) puts itself out there as a protector of children,"
Um, no, actually. No, the Republican party does not bill itself as the protector of children but of something they call 'family values'. The Republican party is currently promoting that as 'parental rights', not the protection of children; they only imply that they protect children because it's more likely to get them swing votes. Republicans have proven repeatedly that they honestly believe parents deserve rights because they're parents and by default the most qualified to protect their children; despite the evidence that too many parents don't know or care about what's really best for their own kids, or even worse enjoy actively harming their own children. Being a parent does not make you qualified to raise your own children, it just means you had them. I've reached a point where anytime someone starts yapping about their 'parental rights' I start looking more closely to check how healthy and happy their kids are.
The alleged family values I too often see supported by the Republican party don't seem to ever amount to more than a desire to force kids into specific thought patterns and behaviors benefiting others rather than the kids. That is not, in my book, any sort of 'protection' that deserves any kind of support under the law. I'd like to see both Raymond and Gallé both lose, pipe dream it likely is.
Man, if that's the way he treats treasure I'm not sure I want to see how he treats just day to day stuff. Does he just set fire to his clothes every time he changes? WTF is wrong with this guy? Even for a MAGAt he seems to lack self awareness, it would be impressive if it weren't so gross.
All right, now look, all you godless, immoral atheists, torturing children is love, Love, LOVE when it's done by a christian. Everything, every last little thing christians do is about love, Love, LOVE. Because christianity is the religion of love, Love, LOVE. If it wasn't all lovey-dovey-lovey-poo, not to mention holy as all shit, they would never say so, because they all believe, deep down in their heart of hearts, that "bearing false witness" is one of the Big Ten worst sins anyone could ever commit. And there you have it--proof positive that they just love everybody to little bitty pieces. And don't you forget it, you child-grooming fiends.
Children shouldn’t have been left for disciplinary action, alone with him in a room. If there were other people present, they should also be held accountable for enabling the abuse. They have an obligation to protect the children in their care.
Hm. I can't say that I'm remotely surprised by this.
