The hardcore looney right really seems to trot this one out a lot lately.  Here it is being discussed on Lady Checkmate's "news" page:

Caution: Many of the responses at the above link are advocating for premeditated violence including torture.

He is the gift that keeps on giving.

... And nobody wants the gift but it keeps coming back no matter how many times they throw it away.

Does that count as stealing from the Church?  If so, I fail to see the crime, here.

More like stealing from the people who paid tuition or donated to the school. Apparently, quite a few parents are pissed off that diocesan officials aren't looking to press charges.

Let’s just call you clairvoyant. I think your prediction will still come true.


FSTDT could run an entire section on the pontifications of Bob Jones. Every response just digs himself a deeper hole.

I never said anything that is racist

Incorrect.

Are you seriously going to ban every conservative Christian who comes here if they state their religious belief that having homosexual relations is sinful?

Conservative Christians, especially conservative Christians who believe conversion therapy is a good idea, are not the intended audience of this forum. If the forum's rules alienate them, that's somewhere between "I couldn't care less" and "good, they are serving their purpose".

“Repeated violations will result in temp bans of increasing length, and then a permaban. Normally, this might be a week, then a month, then permanent.” Since my previous bans were each a week long, according to the forums rules, my ban should be for a month instead of permanent.

I wrote those rules, Jacob. I explicitly phrased this as "Normally this might be" rather than "In all cases this will be" because I preferred the flexibility of deciding the length of bans on a case by case basis (this was a change from previous policy, which also included a year-long-ban before the permaban).

Get a new hobby.

Update - maybe not, a refresh of the screen showed many of the comments reappearing. Mysterious are the ways of the ether.

Religion and Philosophy / Catholic nuns caught in mere financial malfeasance

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/two-california-nuns-accused-embezzling-half-million-school-trips-gambling-n946056

In a more standard sort of crime, two nuns have been caught embezzling funds from a Catholic school in Redondo Beach, California, soon after retiring. Per the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, one had served as principal of the school for twenty-nine years, while the other had been a teacher for twenty, including serving as a vice-principal.

The Church does not want the nuns to face criminal prosecution but the matter has been referred to the Los Angeles County DA's office.

Some of the stolen funds were used to finance personal trips and gambling.

The principal would endorse those checks she intended to steal with a stamp reading "St. James Convent" instead of "St. James School".

We know, from the introduction to the Grand Jury report in Pennsylvania, that some of the documents in the secret archives involved financial crimes, which were outside of that body's purview. Can we investigate those now?
