Hey, did you know that Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington didn’t actually commit suicide but were both in fact murdered because they were going to finally blow the whistle on the elite pedophile ring that was first exposed by pizzagate? I’ve actually seen that in my social media feed with an alarming regularity in the last week.
And yet, in the last few months the Catholic Church was immersed in a pedophilia scandal yet again and conspiracy theorists didn’t seem to care much. None of the perpetrators or victims (and there were actual victims this time) were celebrities, so who gives a shit right? We only care about .001% of pedophilia, but man, we care so much about it that we conveniently don’t give a fuck about the vast majority of child rape. Especially when Christians are involved. Boring. No alleged satanic mind control? Next. From the Washington Post back in June:
“The case pulls Francis’s papacy back into the abuse scandals that have battered the church for nearly two decades and led to demands for sweeping changes on monitoring, selecting and training the clergy. In the United States and elsewhere, groups continue to press for full accountability within the Catholic Church for alleged abuse of children and others going back generations. Many recommendations of a flagship reform commission impaneled by Francis, meanwhile, have been endorsed by the pope, then ignored by the Vatican bureaucracy.
Speaking to reporters at the Vatican, a subdued Pell denounced “relentless character assassination” in the media.
Australian police earlier Thursday announced that Pell faces multiple charges of “historical sexual assault offenses,” that nation’s term for charges related to past conduct.
“The pope certainly does understand the effects of abuse, the horrible damage it does to victims, and he has made an effort. But on the other hand, we haven’t seen an enormous amount of change,” said Marie Collins, an Irish survivor of clergy sexual abuse who quit Francis’s commission in March because she was frustrated that few reforms were taking hold.
“I was more hopeful a few years ago than I was now, because I’ve seen close up how difficult it is to get change,” Collins said. “It can’t all be laid at the feet of Pope Francis.”
Defenders of Francis say he has held priests accountable, including as recently as last month, when he defrocked, or ejected from the priesthood, an Italian man, Mauro Inzoli, who was convicted of child sex abuse in an Italian court. The decision was announced Wednesday.
Still, perhaps emblematic of Francis’s record, the decision came only after he had reversed a previous move by Pope Benedict XVI to defrock the priest.
Pell’s decision to face charges in Australia was seen as another positive signal by some Vatican watchers.”
But wait, there’s more fun news coming out of modern Christianity. While not Catholic, some church in North Carolina just got busted importing slaves from Brazil. Good times (again from the Washington Post):
“Trapped in a foreign land, he said he was forced to work 15 hours a day, usually for no pay, first cleaning warehouses for the secretive evangelical church and later toiling at businesses owned by senior ministers. Any deviation from the rules risked the wrath of church leaders, he said, ranging from beatings to shaming from the pulpit.
“They trafficked us up here. They knew what they were doing. They needed labor and we were cheap labor — hell, free labor,” Oliveira said.
An Associated Press investigation has found that Word of Faith Fellowship used its two church branches in Latin America’s largest nation to siphon a steady flow of young laborers who came on tourist and student visas to its 35-acre compound in rural Spindale.
Under U.S. law, visitors on tourist visas are prohibited from performing work for which people normally would be compensated. Those on student visas are allowed some work, under circumstances that were not met at Word of Faith Fellowship, the AP found.
“And do they beat up the Brazilians?” Jill Rose, now the U.S. attorney in Charlotte, asked.
“Most definitely,” one of the former congregants responded. Ministers “mostly bring them up here for free work,” another said.
Though Rose could be heard promising to look into it, the former members said she never responded when they repeatedly tried to contact her in the months after the meeting.
Rose declined to comment to the AP, citing an ongoing investigation.
Oliveira, who fled the church last year, is one of 16 Brazilian former members who told the AP they were forced to work, often for no pay, and physically or verbally assaulted. The AP also reviewed scores of police reports and formal complaints lodged in Brazil about the church’s harsh conditions.”
Of course this is all just a bunch of fake news. If you were woke, you’d realize it’s clearly a convenient distraction from the inter-dimensional Occult pedophiles who befriend rock stars and then fake their suicides when they threaten to blow the whistle. That adds up.
