    The only reason I even posting this is because this one just 15 minutes from where I live, so it's hitting a little close to home for me.

    Now I'm all for innocent until proven guilty, but when you start saying the police are working for Satan with no concern for the victim, it seems like you are taking sides a bit early. Especially when there is a 2 hour incriminating audio tape that is being used as evidence against the pastor.

    What concerns me the most is that any posts that express concern for the accuser/victim on the church's Facebook page are deleted. Shouldn't the proper response be to express concern for both parties and hope that the truth prevails? If the pastor is convicted, if more victims are uncovered, I would really like to know if this church will still accuse Satan.

    I personal hope the that pastor is innocent and that no child was harmed, but if there was wrong done, justice should prevail.

    P.S. I have prepared myself for this thread to delve quickly into religion, but before it does, I would like it said that if ANY organization did this, religious or secular, I would still feel the same.

    Of course it was Satan's fault. Good contains GOD and Devil contains evil. Remember that undying post ?
    If he's guilty I hope he's punished as harshly as possible.

    I just talked to Satan; he is not aware of anything at all, since this happened to a delegate of the other more holy party he does not want anything to do with this. Anyway he said he was too busy to keep his huge bon fire going because he expects plenty of crooks and sinners in the future.

    Thanks Dutch, I can sleep soundly tonight knowing that Mr. D. Has better things to do than steal our non-believing souls away as we slumber!

    It is a cult of personality. In an organized religion a sex scandle is with the same sex so as not to conflict with ones love for God. In a cult church sex with minors is why the church was started. Koresh told his flock God wanted him to deflower the girls.

    So you think this is a cult church? Would you also argue that the Catholic church is a cult church?

    IMO:
    Cult: There is someone at the top that knows it is all fake
    Religion: That person is dead.

    Given how the parishiners came to his defense and ignored the victim. Yep. The Catholic Church is an orginization.

    No you are wrong: the catholic church is a bussiness!! They and the Mormon church are the richest institutions on earth; who do not pay any taxes here. They just built a multi million dollar church in Naples Fl; looks about as big as anything in Europe was built in no time ona prime property near the coast.

    We're just setting both up for immanent domaine. And we're going to hit them RICO and seize the assets and balance all budgets(local, state and federal).

    Ya, I know I butchered the spelling but it's before noon.

    Keep in mind that all those "believers" are armed and dangerous (at least the Southern ones) and will shoot first and ask questions latter at anyone who dares question the truthfulness of their religion. After all, God loves and protects the USA. He even picked some hillbilly town in Missouri to bring his only begotten son back to (again)!

    Praise da Lord and pass da ammo and everything will workout in da end (da bible told me so)

    I've also thought the Catholic Church was a religious conspiracy and the deeper you travel into the depths the more of a cult you will see. Have anybody ever questioned why all the secrecy in the Catholic Church? What do they hide from all the world? It's the stuff that movies are made from, so why the secrecy? Do they have knowledge of aliens? Maybe it's true that Jesus had a wife? Rome maintains such a massive secret service that it rivals all the countries in the world. Why? What is their to hide? Does God need to hide? I have never understood why the Catholic Church maintains secrets that are prohibited from being shared with the world.

    My faith is not that fragile and is simplistic in knowing what is Holy and must be respected. The Catholic Church on the overhand operates as if the public doesn't deserve to know the truth, just blow some smoke, say some latin, sprinkle some water and drink the wine with the bread and drink some more wine.............just pass the bottle.

    The Catholic Church needs to open up to the world, admit women to the priesthood, and share the knowledge. Many of us already know of the Coming and wanting for the arrival, so the Catholic Church needs to show the Holy to all of us. When you try to hide something, there's too much false assumptions made by others and only causes developing conspiracy and mistrust. Lay the hands on the Bible and tell the truth, so help us GOD.

    Have you ever considered all the secrecy is because there is nothing to share? It's all nothing more than an illusion created by a bunch of old power hungry men! If there was anything to actually share they would have shared it from the beginning. Secrecy = power, control & wealth!!!
