While flipping channels last night, I came across a story on CNN (Anderson Cooper 360) that was about claims made by former students, and mostly accepted by the pastor, of abusing children in the name of God. The religious school involved in this story is Fairhaven Baptist Church in Indiana.

I think this link presents a transcript on the program. Although it mentions being aired on Sep 02, but I watched it last night. Or may be I caught part 2.

This sick sick twisting of religion has made national news a number of times.

These disgusting people using the ignorance of believers to basically get their cookies off abusing children, and get paid to do it while thumbing their noses at the laws.

The really sick part is that they present themselves as christian, and everyone goes deaf, dumb, blind and stupid.

These ministers of this school are not fundamental Christian because they do not follow the ways of Christ to make them Christians at all....For this the authority of abuse and strife that does not come from the Spirit of Jesus .... How do this leaders of this house get past the Government criminal check report needed to take care of Children in America? Were laws of criminal check in most area are required every year for people who have children under their care who are not theirs ........Spare the rod hate the child scripture is for children under the care of the parent where the relationship with the parent is bonded and never for strange people in reform schools ...... Jesus morals teaches His people to Love and to love beyond the scope of logic. Abusing people for Jesus is blaspheme of the will of God .... and if children will not love, then turning to Jesus to judge the child will turn bully children back to normal thorough the spirit with no abuse.......

One of these days someone is going to reveal the Scotsman's secret....If you look under his kilt, all Scotsmen are pretty much the same.

Christians claim that their God is loving and benevolent yet they commit atrocities such as these in his name.

Another reason to be glad I left this religion behind and never looked back.
