NYC De Blasio Admin Staffer, Young Democrats President Arrested for Possession of Over 3,000 Child Porn Files

NEW YORK — An employee under the De Blasio administration and president of Manhattan Young Democrats has been arrested for allegedly being in possession of thousands of files containing child pornography.

Jacob Schwartz, 29, was taken into custody on last week after investigators found on his computer more than 3,000 images and 89 videos depicting children engaging in sex acts on an adult.

He had been under investigation since March after willingly handing over his laptop. Schwartz surrendered himself on Thursday, and his father told the New York Post following his arraignment that Schwartz is obtaining therapy.

His attorney, James Roth, confirmed the information.

“How [the police] came to him I do not know,” he told the New York Daily News. “He’s going to be undergoing psychosexual therapy to get to the root of this issue.”

“If the alleged actions are true, it really seems like a product of someone with a psychological problem calling out for help—not to evade the law,” Roth asserted. “He surrendered his computer and gave them consent to search.”

Schwartz facing charges of promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by a child under 16. He is currently free on $7,500 bail.

Schwartz had worked as a computer programmer for the city’s Department of Design and Construction, where he assisted with the Hurricane Sandy recovery program. He also served as the president of Manhattan Young Democrats and helped to support the election of Democratic candidates. Schwartz worked as a field organizer for Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign.

Both of his positions have now been terminated.

“The Manhattan Young Democrats are shocked by recent reports of criminal allegations against one of our members,” the group said in a statement. “MYD maintains a deep and abiding respect for our judicial system, and the sacred principle that individuals are innocent until proven guilty, but the nature of these accusations required us to take immediate action.”

Mayor Bill De Blasio’s office distanced themselves from the employee.

“Obviously, these are extremely serious allegations,” City Hall Spokeswoman Melissa Grace told reporters. “This is a junior-level agency employee with no connection to the mayor or city hall. He is being terminated immediately, and the agency is cooperating with investigators.”

    He can obtain therapy all day long. Won’t matter. It never is healed. Once a child molester, child pedophile, whatever they are when it comes to children – they always are. The only thing that even comes close to helping them are medicines that reduce the sexual desire for this & their strong will to keep away from children. The biggest hope is in the Lord & yet still, they struggle

    • Parodyx

      I don’t disagree with your first statements. And I appreciate that you didn’t do as Oboehner did and bring in homosexuality which is irrelevant. But I disagree that religion can change anything for them.

  • Amos Moses

    shortly after coming into any power, the elite will either get you to do something or get something on you just for this purpose …. to hold it over you to get you to do what they want …………….. it is blackmail ….. but the person is always responsible for what they did ……… so now i have to wonder what he found out that got him into so much trouble ………….

    Why is it only a psychological issue when Dems do it? And no, this isn’t a psychological problem, it’s a sin problem.

    • james blue

      Who, other than yourself made that argument? (your first question)

      • Guest✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        You really should read the article prior to commenting.

        • james blue

          I did and nowhere does it suggest “it’s only a psychological issue when Dems do it”

  • Oboehner

    Notice the complete lack of leftist trolls on stories such as this?

    • Sisyphus

      You are expecting someone to attempt to defend his repulsive behavior? Violent career criminals love to get a new pedophile as a new prison guest. Not sure how my radical left politics precludes me from thinking prison is where he belongs.

      • Oboehner

        What, no “born that way” nonsense?

        • Sisyphus

          Even if he was “born that way” if his sickness compels him to abuse and exploit others, he needs to be kept away from society. Maybe banished to a remote island.

          • Oboehner

            Gays exploit each other but that’s fine by you.

          • Sisyphus

            Where did you get that in my comment? What goes on between consenting adults is not my concern.

          • Oboehner

            Just like the heroin addict and the pusher.

          • Sisyphus

            If drug use was legalized that dynamic would change significantly; but again, not my concern, much like the gullible congregant and the abusive/exploitive pastor. If an adult wants to live their life under the thumb of religious dogma, that is their choice.

          • Oboehner

            If drug use were legalized that dynamic wouldn’t change one iota.
            Much like the gullible congregant and the abusive/exploitive DNC. EVERY adult lives under religious dogma, even you – the only choice is which one.

          • Parodyx

            Completely UNLIKE the heroin addict and the pusher actually. In every respect. Learn to leave people alone.

          • Oboehner

            Oh, because you (with nothing more than empty claims of popular opinion) say so? Yeah, right.

          • Parodyx

            No, here are a list of things I have on my side:
            – science
            – the dictionary
            – medicine
            – empathy
            – common sense

            The last one, common sense, refers to the simple fact that a heroin addict is harming himself. A pusher harms others. Homosexuals harm nobody.

          • Oboehner

            You forgot unsubstantiated BS, which is something you have plenty of. That and blind. You prove my point more and more with every post you make that contains no proof, thanks.

          • james blue

            What do gays have to do with this?

          • Amos Moses

            can you spell D-O-U-B-L-E S-T-A-N-D-A-R-D …………….. how about “born that way” ………….. how about “SEXUALITY IS FIXED AND UNCHANGEABLE” ………….. how about any of the other assorted lies about it ………….

          • james blue

            What double standard are you talking about. The guy is a pedophile.. Gays are consenting adults.

            My sexuality is fixed, I’m straight, I had no choice in the matter and couldn’t be convince to be anything different.

          • Amos Moses

            No, no, no …. LOVE WINS ….. He was BORN that way ….. what kind of a BIGOT are you ….. and JUST WHO ARE YOU to judge him ….. WHO ARE YOU to draw that line …… where do you get off with such BIGOTRY ………….

          • james blue

            Okaaaay.—- Well it’s not morning so I can’t offer my usual greeting to you.

          • Amos Moses

            oh … i forgot one ….. thats YOUR interpretation ……………..

          • Parodyx

            No one EVER says any of those things in matters of pedophilia, Amos. It is a crime with no defenders.

          • Amos Moses

            on what basis do you make that distinction …… who or what allows you to draw that line where you have and why do YOU think you get to make that distinction …… if the answer is consent then that is a very flimsy excuse to draw that line ……….. there are numerous “scientists” and politicians who claim it is an imaginary line and that the law has no authority to make that distinction ………

          • Parodyx

            On what basis? How about on the basis that the two subjects are completely different in every respect? Have you looked the two words up in the dictionary?

          • Amos Moses

            which two words would that be … and it does not answer the questions ………..

          • Parodyx

            “Pedophilia” and “homosexuality”. And your question is absurd if you don’t understand the difference, which you don’t.

          • Amos Moses

            nope … these were the silly arguments made years ago … has not one thing to do with equating them …… has to do with the absurdity of the original position ……… and you have no answers ……….

          • Parodyx

            You were given your answer. You were told to consult the dictionary where you would discover the world of difference between the two words you are determined to believe are the same thing. You can leave me out of this one. Your battle is with Merriam-Webster.

          • Amos Moses

            WHY ARE YOU NOT …………… what is different ….. all of those apply ………. MR. SCOTSMAN ……..

          • Parodyx

            No they DON’T.

            Consent is the issue, you’ve been told that countless times by countless people. We leave consenting adults alone. When a child is being abused by someone, even if they think they’re “in love” with the child, even if they claim they are born that way, we step in and protect the minor. I mean it’s so obvious and you REFUSE to get it.

          • Amos Moses

            so NO TRUE HOMOSEXUAL ….. er …. SCOTSMAN …… LOL!!!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL ………… ad infinitum ……..

            Yeah, I have long suspected you don’t know what the No Yrue Scotsman fallacy means. This just proves it.

            AGAIN ……..

            “The state should no longer be allowed to assume the rationality of regulations based upon age and should at least be required to justify its actions on the basis of modern legislative and administrative findings.” ~ Hillary Rodham, The Harvard Education Review, 1973, “Children Under the Law”

          • Parodyx

            And you think that means she was justifying child molestation. Just unbelievable.

          • Amos Moses

            it would not be molestation if the LAW was changed ….. now would it …….

          • Parodyx

            Yes it would, which is why no one would stand for the law being changed. Who do you think is out there demanding that we decriminalize child abuse?

          • Amos Moses

            based on what … and what CREDIBILITY do you have for opposing it …………. and why are you such a BIGOT …….

          • Parodyx

            What credibility do I require apart from a dictionary? You know, the dictionary you refuse to use?

            I oppose child abuse. I don’t oppose homosexuality. Tell me how that makes me a bigot.

          • Amos Moses

            no, no, no ….. THAT is what we told you about homomarriage …… YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE …….. if the law changes that …. then we can change whatever we please and WHO ARE YOU TO SAY …………………….. you have ZERO credibility …………

          • Parodyx

            There is ZERO hypocrisy. Zero tolerance for child abuse, and the right for same-sex couples to fall in love and marry. Separate issues, no hypocrisy. Your charge is a FAIL.

          • Amos Moses

            TOTAL hypocrisy ……….

          • Parodyx

            I have facts. You don’t.

          • Amos Moses

            no …. you have your HYPOCRISY and ZERO credibility ………..

          • Parodyx

            And yet you can’t tell me one thing I’ve said that is hypocritical. Hmm. Isn’t that funny?

          • Amos Moses

            that homomarriage is okey doke and harms no one …….. biggest lie of the homosexual …..

          • Parodyx

            So you disagree. Big deal. I disagree with you about most things. It doesn’t make me a hypocrite.

          • Amos Moses

            sure it does ….. because it does cause harm and then when it comes to your fellows in depravity you think you get to draw some imaginary line …… as if you had an authority to do so …… because you gave up that authority when you endorsed your own depravity ….. but deny it to others ………… you have no credibility to say no …. but you think you do ….. HYPOCRISY …………

          • Parodyx

            No hypocrisy. Homosexuals do not harm one another. You fail, Amos. You fail so hard.

          • Amos Moses

            you are an ageist BIGOT …… if a 18 YO and a 50 YO can get married who are YOU to say ………….

          • Parodyx

            That would not be pedophilia then. Make up your mind.
            You REALLY don’t know the difference, do you?

          • Amos Moses

            what difference does it make if it is over age or not …… you are an ageist BIGOT …………

          • Parodyx

            Tell me what that means, Amos. Are you saying you support children being sexually abused, and if you don’t, then you are a bigot?
            To answer your question, “what difference does it make if its over age or not” – simple. If it’s “over age” we call them homosexuals. If it’s not, we call them pedophiles. See the difference?

          • Nick Bush

            I would insult you, but then you’d probably call me an ableist bigot for insulting someone who’s obviously mentally handicapped.

          • Ambulance Chaser

            Well, it wouldn’t be illegal anymore if the law were changed to make it not illegal.

            But the law hasn’t changed and there’s no reason to change it. So what’s your point?

          • Amos Moses

            but that is the only point YOU ever make ….. “SCOTUS said …..” ……. “Lawrence v Texas said …..”….. “Loving v Virginia said ……….” Blah, Blah, Woof, Woof ……… the LAW is your God ….. and there was no reason to change the law that was before all those cases ……. BUT IT WAS ……………. you have NO credibility to say no ………….

          • Nick Bush

            Lay off the meth, troll.

          • Amos Moses

            so you cant refute and so ad hominem ……

          • Nick Bush

            “you pray to a an invisible God called the law …… and that law holds no truth ………”

            Troll confirmed.

          • Amos Moses

            more ad hominem CONFIRMED ………. and you are the troll ………

          • Ambulance Chaser

            What in the world are you talking about?

            All I said is that having sex with a minor is illegal. Which is correct. If that ever changes I’ll let you know.

          • Amos Moses

            but the law changed and homomarriage was “good” …… but you do not support your fellow depraved brothers in their depravity ….. you are not going to stand up for their “rights” to “love whom they love and marry whom they want to marry” …….. what a hypocrite …………..

          • Parodyx

            I stand up for homosexual couples to fall in love and get married. I don’t support a pedophile abusing a child. One or both of these statements is REALLY causing you grief, and I’m not sure why.

          • Amos Moses

            change the law as it was done with homomarriage and all of a sudden ….. IT IS NOT ABUSE ….. HYPOCRISY ……………..

          • Parodyx

            NO ONE is going to change the law to allow children to be abused! Why don’t you realize that?

          • Amos Moses

            “NO ONE is going to change the law to allow homomarriage”

            ………. yeah right ….. FYI, CHANGE THE LAW and it is NO LONGER ABUSE ……. you have NO CREDIBILITY ………

          • Parodyx

            I have all kinds of credibility. When has the law in this country ever been changed to allow the abuse of minors? EVER?

          • Nick Bush

            How is two men in love abuse?

          • Amos Moses

            red herring ……… the ISSUE is THE LAW …….. if the LAW is changed …. then IT IS NO LONGER ABUSE ………. FYI, Rome allowed homosexual “marriage” …… AND it also allowed pederasty and pedophilia ….. BECAUSE IT WAS THE LAW ………….. and all that has to be done ….. IS CHANGE THE LAW ………. and if you were in ANY WAY consistent ….. then that is what your position should be …. but of course you are not … you are a hypocrite …… and a liar …..

          • Nick Bush

            I’m beginning to think he’s either a really dedicated troll or severely brain damaged.

          • Parodyx

            It’s difficult after all this time to see how he can be so willfully obtuse.

          • Nick Bush

            Marriage is a contract, and children cannot enter into a contract, like two adults of the same gender. If you can’t grasp that, maybe you shouldn’t be able to legally enter into a contract because of your incompetence.

          • Amos Moses

            “Marriage is a contract, and children cannot enter into a contract”

            an abortion IS A CONTRACT to do something ….. HYPOCRISY ………….

          • Nick Bush

            Are you mentally handicapped or just a troll? How is an abortion a contract?

          • Amos Moses

            HOW IS IT NOT …… a fee is paid for a service ….. it has every element of a contract …..offer, acceptance and consideration ………… how is that NOT a contract …………..

          • Nick Bush

            I think Amos probably wants to molest children.

          • Nick Bush

            Homosexuality involves consenting adults while pedophilia involves children who cannot consent.

          • Amos Moses

            and Hillary Clinton says that those laws are ANTIQUATED and need to be rewritten …… and that they have no basis in LAW ………….. so on what basis do you think you get to draw that line there with ANY validity ……….

          • Nick Bush

            What on earth are you ranting and raving about?

          • Amos Moses

            “The state should no longer be allowed to assume the rationality of regulations based upon age and should at least be required to justify its actions on the basis of modern legislative and administrative findings.” ~ Hillary Rodham, The Harvard Education Review, 1973, “Children Under the Law”

          • Nick Bush

            That has to do with parental rights, not age of consent. Also, what are you arguing, other than one person allegedly trying to lower the age of consent?

          • Amos Moses

            no …. it has to do with WHATEVER they want it to cover ………………. and it is not just one …….

          • Nick Bush

            That’s still a red herring though. A child cannot consent to sex with an adult, regardless of who thinks the age of consent should be lowered. Comparing even grey area situations to actual adults who consent is asinine.

          • Amos Moses

            if they can consent to a medical procedure which is FAR MORE invasive than sex ….. then they CAN ……

          • Amos Moses

            certain states allow those under 12 to consent to an abortion …… why is sex off the table ……..

          • Nick Bush

            Because carrying a pregnancy to term is dangerous at 12 years and under. Also, abortion is a medical procedure, while sex is not.

          • Jason Todd

            Abortion is an elective medical procedure.

          • Amos Moses

            so they CAN CONSENT …………..

          • Nick Bush

            Below a certain age, parents are required to consent for any medical procedure (barring extraordinary circumstances). The same logic applies for sexual conduct. The minors themselves are not consenting, their parents are.

          • Amos Moses

            in Washington and Oregon and NY …… NO AGE OF CONSENT to get an abortion ………….. NO PARENTAL CONSENT ……….

          • Nick Bush

            Your point is? Are you just mad that fetus worshiping parents can’t force their daughters to give birth?

          • Ambulance Chaser

            If that’s the case, it’s because there is no good option. It’s either have an abortion or have a baby. There is no neutral option that is physically possible.

            Totally not analogous to the decision to have sex or not have sex.

          • Amos Moses

            it makes no difference why they did it …… they can give CONSENT ………. without their parents CONSENT ………. an abortion is FAR more invasive than sex ……

          • Ambulance Chaser

            My point isn’t what capacity minors have to make a decision, it’s that the decision to have an abortion and the decision to have sex aren’t analogous.

          • Sharon_at_home

            Amos, why are you baiting them? You are sounding like you want a fight and that is definitely not a Christian attitude.
            “who or what allows you to draw that line where you have and why do YOU think you get to make that distinction ……”
            I have got to ask. Who or what allows you, Amos, to draw that line where you think they have put it; then you asked why they feel they should make a distinction between homosexuals and men who abuse boys ie. a pedophile? Of course they have a ‘line’ just like everyone else draws a line between bad and good. Whether they are homosexuals or defending homosexuals, they are humans first and they are aware of this practice being a horrible thing that happens. Homosexuals are not pedophiles. Open your mind and file that for future reference Amos. It will save us all a lot of time.
            God bless!

          • Sharon_at_home

            So let me understand what you are trying to say. Basically you are saying that God wants us to tell people that they have to repent for their sins, right? I don’t see anything about bullying being of God. I don’t see anything that says that God wants us to demean anyone either.
            Do you have scriptures that use those words or imply that we are to follow those things? You know, bullying and demeaning? I must have missed them when I read the gospel. Please give me the scriptures so I can be aware of them too. I’d appreciate that very much.
            FYI Dear Amos, you will not find any scriptures that say anything close to those two actions in Jesus’ Word. I know that and you know that. Jesus was about loving each other not about pressuring people about repenting, but asking them to decide of their free will if they will accept the salvation He offers, and will therefore want to repent of their sins by using their free will to make the choice. He doesn’t want anyone who is pressured into trying to believe; He knows our hearts so no one can say they believe without God knowing their hearts. If there is doubt in someone’s belief and trust of God, He will know it. They have to keep learning, keep knowing more about God so they can truly believe in their heart when they accept the offer of salvation for the repentance of their sins. It’s all in the gospel. If you are to be as close as you can to being like Jesus, (which you are) then you should know that your approach is not the attitude of a Christian who follows Jesus and the gospel. It needs to be adjusted.
            I keep trying to point out to you Amos, how are the people in these articles any different than someone who comes to your church from the community for the first time and at least some visits after that. They are still the exact same as people in this article except with these people you know what their sin is, where you don’t know what the ‘new’ person at your church sins are at all.
            The only reason you know these people’s sin is because of the media. If it weren’t for that, you could not be as judgemental and demeaning to the people in the articles > just like you don’t behave that way (I pray!) to ‘new’ people at your church.
            Read your gospel Amos and think about the way I tried to explain why you shouldn’t be putting people down about their sins like you do.
            Please Amos. Give it an attempt to look again at what Jesus said in the gospels about how he wanted us to be like. Look at when he talks to the multitudes and the things he taught them. He was talking about how He wants us to be in this life Amos. I know you have a strong faith Amos, I can tell that when I discount how you say things. I am your sister in faith, Amos, and I care about you and your hope of salvation. I do not want you to blindly walk without being the way Jesus wants us to be. I want you to have salvation without it being that He doesn’t know you because of these things. I am honestly trying to get you to see the error of your ways before it is too late. Jesus wants all to come to salvation but it is dependent of our repentance of our sins. If you don’t understand what you are supposed to be behaving the way Jesus wants us to, it won’t be an excuse Amos, it will be your own iniquities that you are trying to blame on God as the reason that you are sinning.
            I am only trying this hard Amos because I am honestly concerned for your salvation. I know you think that you are one of the elect and you can’t lose your salvation but if you sin without repentance you can lose it. You have to continue to repent for your sins continuously and re-evaluate yourself at times to look at what kind of sins you need to repent for in your life. We should be reading the Word of God continuously too, so please focus on the gospel Amos so you won’t sin anymore – at least this way – and your repentance will be accepted and forgiven. You know that’s the way it works Amos. You know the scriptures at least somewhat, and you and I disagree with the meanings of some of them, but look to the scriptures in the gospel because it is all about our salvation – written in red.
            I sincerely pray you will not think this is false or trying to lead you astray, Amos. It is only because I am concerned for your salvation. It has nothing to do with me, and all about how Jesus will look at how you treat people. If you choose not to at least look into the gospel and look for what I have told you is there, then you will not be trying to receive salvation because you will be going against what is written, and continuing to sin without repentance will not be forgiven even for the elect. No one can willfully sin against God’s Word and expect salvation Amos. Read it then go to your church leader and ask questions so you understand it well. It’s important to you Amos, not to me. We are responsible for our own salvation and can do nothing to gain it for someone else. But we can – they call it rebuking – a fellow in faith to realize their mistake that could affect your salvation. It’s something Jesus told us to do. I am just trying to help you.
            I pray you will listen Amos, I truly do.

            “Basically you are saying that God wants us to tell people that they have to repent for their sins, right?”

            John the Baptist: 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
            3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
            3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

            Christ: Mat 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

            Peter: Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

            Paul: (on Mars Hill) 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
            17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

            I didn’t say I disagreed with what the Bible says about repentance. I was saying it to make sure we both understood what I was going to talk about in the rest of the reply. OK?

          • Amos Moses

            i demean there position …… their position is backrupt ….

          • Sharon_at_home

            Where in the bible does it tell us to demean anyone?
            How can you truly love someone and talk so badly about them?
            You have a problem with Pride. God states that it was one of the things He hates the most. By demeaning them, you are saying that you are better than them. When you say/feel/ think you are better than other people, it is from Pride. You know you have to repent for that, right?
            Is no one allowed to ever disagree with your opinion, Amos? Is that the only way you know how to talk to someone who is trying to show you a different way of looking at something?
            I think you are more intelligent than that and can use better words without being demeaning people.
            God loves you Amos.

            10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
            10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
            10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
            10:6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
            10:7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ’s, even so are we Christ’s.
            10:8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:
            10:9 That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.
            10:10 For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.

            we are to take captive every thought ……. to pull down strongholds …..

          • Sharon_at_home

            It is still demeaning to the person you are replying to.

            for example

            Well, Amos, your position is bad and you are an ID10T for having that position.

            See how that works? It is demeaning to you about your position.

            That doesn’t say to use our words to make people feel bad about themselves Amos.
            Please put the Book in your replies. It makes them quicker for me to look them up, to see the rest of the book and see how we would interpret it at our church. Then, if I’m not sure still, I will ask around at my church, or ask my Pastor to give me understanding. I also ask the Lord to help me understand what His Word means in that scripture. One way or another I will know more about it, and I will let you know what I am told/find so you can assess it too. Ok? Does that sound reasonable?
            Then we can discuss our views and hopefully come to a conclusion that is agreeable to both of us.

            God bless Amos

            no … it is not …. and BTW ….. mockery has a legitimate use to bring the truth to the unregenerate …..

            18:25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.
            18:26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.
            18:27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
            18:28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
            18:29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

          • Sharon_at_home

            It was mocking them for believing in a false God. I think that is covered by our first commandment.

            Matthew 22:37-38 (First commandment only)
            37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
            38 This is the first and great commandment.

            After all Our God is a jealous God and He was angry about the people worshiping another god when that god was not even giving them the answers to their prayers.
            Exodus 34:14
            For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose
            name is Jealous, is a jealous God:

            He told his followers to encourage them to worship and ask their god something. They did. They laughed at them because their prayers didn’t work because of the False god.
            He allowed His followers to mock them only because of the circumstances in the scriptures. They were going directly against His command.

            If you notice though, when Jesus came to earth, he was much more about love than any of the sins. He told them what they were, but I never got the impression that they dwelt on their sin. He moved on telling them about more things they needed to know to have the hope of salvation. Like how to behave to show the world that we are Christians and we follow Jesus – then we are supposed to act like Jesus – otherwise you are not obeying the Word of God.

            Can you give me more examples of unloving like behaviour that is in the NT about what Jesus wants a Christian to do? Please don’t forget the book as it makes it quicker for me.

            Although, TBH Amos you have been really really good for me and have helped in strengthening my faith. Thank you.

            By presenting such a variation to how I see Jesus to how you seem to see Him; you giving me scriptures and I am able Hallelujah!! to find the appropriate scripture to reply to you. I have learned so much and by needing to go through to find scripture has made me realize just how much of the Bible I have learned about in the 8 years I’ve been in Church. I feel the Holy Spirit has given me the ability to find the scriptures though and directs me to them too. One time at the beginning I had a hard time thinking of a scripture for you, and couldn’t figure out what the Book and Chapter it was. 2 days later I was able to go directly to it, and have had little trouble finding them since then. So again Amos, Thanks so much! I’m being serious and honest.

            You have helped me immensely. I wish with all my heart that you would let me help you. You need to understand more about what Jesus says at different parts of the gospel to understand what he wanted for us, and from us. Oh Amos.
            May I know if you go to church, and whether you interpret the bible on your own or with help? Maybe that information will help me understand why you won’t let me help you. You don’t see the sins you are doing at all as made obvious by your posts. If you don’t recognize them soon, it could be too late. You know this! Stopping doing a sin is not always a snap. Especially if you have been doing it for a long time. I lived a life of free will until I was 52 then took like a duck to water to learn what my sins were and overcome them. But they came back at one point and it was even more difficult to overcome them the second time.

            If you have something you have done for years and then read some scripture to find out that doing that is a sin. Problem is it’s an automatic habit now. Before you realize you are going to do this sin – you do it and you might miss it like you used to, or you might notice it and try harder to think about a way to stop doing it. It takes faith and Trust in God to actually end a habit from years and years. But if you don’t know about your sin you are not able to plead that you never knew because it’s in the Bible and each of us are in charge of our own salvation; I can’t give salvation to anyone, all I can do is tell them about it. The Lord has to offer it.

            You helped me, please let me help you? You still have to choose whether to believe my view or not all I ask is that you read the New Testament and focus on what Jesus’ words say about our lives. On what he outlined as what He wants in us as a Child of God. You should know the NT anyway and it would be just another re-reading for you. Please?

          • Amos Moses

            ALL sin is believing in a false god ……. it ALL begins with disregarding the first two commandments …………. and the sin is “What I want is more important than what God wants” “I am the center of my universe” “I Am the I Am” ……. it all starts right there ….. and the only way to get ANY true repentance is to break that thought …… that “What I want is more important” ……. until a man is HUMBLED to let go of that …. you are wasting your time ………..

            There is a mirror of the ten commandments …….. it shows us our sins as God sees them ….. and until WE see them as God does …… there is no repentance …… and kissing the buttocks of the unregenerate will not get you there ………..

            Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
            Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

          • Amos Moses

            “You know, bullying and demeaning? ”

            those are your emotional responses to the truth …… and not the truth …… emotion has nothing to do with the truth ……….. it is emotionalism …..

          • Sharon_at_home

            So I’m not allowed to use emotion when I talk about my religion and my faith? or my belief?

            Is compassion an emotion Amos? Jesus was always compassionate about the people he was teaching in the Gospel.
            Love is an emotion that he made as one of the commandments.
            The Fruit of the Spirit are all based on emotions Amos:
            Galatians 5:22-23
            22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
            23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

            Why exactly do you see your bullying and demeaning as a righteous thing in the Lord’s eye? I really honestly want to know. My faith tells me one thing, and you are talking about another in high contrast to what I’ve read and believed. Don’t you want to teach me the way to be a good Christian using the scriptures that you go by that actually tell us to behave that way towards others? I don’t want to go against God’s Word just because I missed some scriptures.

            If you want you can just put the Book, Ch. vs. in a post and not have to copy and paste anything. I can look them up and ask you questions if I have any, right?

            God Bless!

          • Amos Moses

            you may use emotion all you like … has nothing to do with scripture or reason ……. christianity is not an emotional plea ……… compassion and emotion are not the same thing …… your “feels” are not relevant to scriptures ………. they are not relevant to the truth …………..

          • Sharon_at_home

            No you are not understanding me.

            I am saying that Jesus made it clear in the scriptures that we must have compassion for others.

            Some of these are from His parables in the NT.
            1 Peter 3:8 – 9
            8 Finally, [be ye] all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, [be] pitiful, [be] courteous:
            9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

            1 John 3:17
            But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
            Every single one of these scriptures has compassion in it.

            parables are not the basis of theology ….. and one or two oblique references out of context is not a scriptural basis for theology ….. DOCTRINE MATTERS ……… THEOLOGY MATTERS ……

          • Sharon_at_home

            2 scriptures? I only copied out 2 of the 20 examples that I had. I gave you a list of them below the 2 I copied out for you. Look at it again. I also told you that each and ever scripture in that list has compassion being used as an emotion that motivated the person to have compassion about another person or group of people.

            You are catholic aren’t you? I’ve never heard another religion that says anything like that. But maybe I haven’t known enough people of religions before now.

            Parables are how Jesus taught those who had ears to hear! These are about specific qualities that Jesus wanted us to understand. Each one teaches a lesson about life, just in ways that are harder for some people to discern.

            So you don’t bother with the gospel at all then? How do you expect salvation without following Jesus including His teachings and His love?

            Are you familiar with the parables and their meanings or do you just pass them by too? Did you know that there are parables in both the Old and the New Testaments?

            It’s a way to tell his followers how to be more like him, for one thing.

            They are telling people about how to get to Heaven by the narrow path.

            It is to help people that Parables were used as examples of something that they were familiar with to help them understand it better and be able to become more like Him in them. The parables have a purpose for us to read and understand them. I have some great bibles that have explanations for the Parables in the OT as well as in the NT. if anyone is interested.

            I don’t know a lot about the Catholic faith and how they decide what they follow and what they don’t. I have other Catholics to help me understand why you shouted that at me – DOCTRINE MATTERS ……… THEOLOGY MATTERS ……

            I understand what the words mean, but I am not sure how they go with the commandments that were directly from the Lord God/Jesus. Those are the Only 2 commands that matter to Jesus. It throws out the 10 commandments and all the laws and says instead, to love each other. For if we love each other then we will try not to hurt each other so the commandment about Love is a major necessity to achieve Salvation, no matter what you’ve been taught. The idea that it is impossible to lose your salvation is wrong. If you do not recognize your sins and continue in them, without repentance whether it’s because you didn’t realize it was a sin or not, You were able to read the gospel yourself so you could live a Holy life. There is no excuse that God will accept if you did not live your life – as one who goes to church – the way He told us to. It’s our own responsibility to seek, ask, and find the tools we need to aid us in our journey. You are walking a wide path right now, Amos.

          • Amos Moses

            “Parables are how Jesus taught those who had ears to hear!”

            no …. they were to keep others from understanding what He was saying when what He was saying was for the apostles only ….. and they are not the basis of theology ………

            i type in all caps for emphasis …. it is not yelling ….. i want to make sure the point is not skipped over …….

            “I understand what the words mean, but I am not sure how they go with the commandments that were directly from the Lord God/Jesus. Those are the Only 2 commands that matter to Jesus. It throws out the 10 commandments and all the laws and says instead, to love each other.”

            then you had better go back and read more deeply ……….

            5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
            5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
            5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
            5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

            23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
            23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
            23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
            23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
            23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chicken under her wings, and ye would not!
            23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
            23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

            I posted that I had lost the verses you gave to me and asked you to post them again at some point. If you want to give the just the book, chapter and verses, I will be copying them to a word document to study them.
            If I can’t work it out myself, I discuss it with my Pastor.
            I guess I need the reasons we were discussing those scriptures too. Sorry about that.

            I did mention that those verses were directed at the Pharisees and the Scribes specifically, and that was because of their hypocrisy about the laws that the Lord gave them to teach, and then watched as they taught what they said was God’s Word, but totally rejected it all by not living in the same manner that they bullied other people about.

            The Pharisees and the Scribes were a separate issue for Jesus. He wanted to tell them that He and His Father knew what they taught and that they were not living by the same laws themselves and because of that they were hypocrites – about the Lord’s religion and laws? They were lucky they were not killed on the spot like the man and woman that held back money and lied about it. It was certainly a possibility since it is a method used in the story about the liars. IMO Jesus chose not to use that punishment at the time as there was no reason not to except to give them a chance to repent still be a rodent and still have their salvation by exhibiting the proper characteristics of Christians. That’s a way that Jesus showed the love that He preached, to show them how it’s done.

            You have to take the Pharisees and Scribes as separate from others in Jesus’ teachings because of what He was accusing them of, telling them that The Father knows what they were doing and if they don’t change their ways, they will regret it. He called for everyone’s repentance, not only some people. Everyone has the chance to attain Salvation.

            I refuse to get frustrated, or stressed about you Amos.

            The Lord brought me to you Amos, so you can’t just ignore me, I expect the Lord will work on you too. He obviously wants you to get to heaven Amos, and has sent you help. I have always felt I was brought to this site to help others understand the truth about the Gospel and salvation. Something tells me it is something I’m supposed to do. He’s used me before with a variety of people with a variety of problems. I consider it a gift He gave to me early in my life. He always seems to manage to put me with the people that could use my help.

            I was kind of hoping the Lord God would put the desire to learn with His Gospel. I’ll pray He will so you will listen – all I’m asking for you to do is LOOK at the gospel – go through it and learn about Jesus. Get to know what kind of person he was when he was on the earth. He was on the earth to experience the things that humans did and the Temptations of the Devil that he had to avoid just like we do.

            I hope you read all of this.

          • Amos Moses

            “I guess I need the reasons we were discussing those scriptures too. Sorry about that.”

            Christ is made into an image that He is not …. people want to disregard His other attributes ….. He got tired, hungry ….. and angry ….. He was truely man and truely God …. and to ignore those other attributes is to create a false image of Him …. an anti-christ …….. Christ was NOT Mr. Rogers in the sweater vest and slippers …… He was not a smiling Buddha ……. He was God in the flesh ….. God with us ……..

          • Parodyx

            So even when you get schooled by a fellow Christian you dig your heels in.

          • Amos Moses

            with scripture …. because that is what is required … sure ……..

          • Parodyx

            She schooled you with scripture.

          • Amos Moses

            no …. she was answered in scripture that shows her reading of it is wrong ……….

          • Parodyx

            In other words, you are saying she is not a True Scotsman. I mean Christian.

          • Amos Moses

            i said no such thing … i said she was wrong in her emotional plea and that is all it was ….. emotion and not reason …. and not scripture ……..

          • Parodyx

            She gave you scripture.

          • Amos Moses

            no …. where ….. it was not quoted properly ….. so it was not quoted at all ………..

          • Parodyx

            This is what Sharon said to you:

            The Fruit of the Spirit are all based on emotions Amos:
            Galatians 5:22-23
            22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
            23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

          • Amos Moses

            no …. the fruit of the spirit comes from the Holy Spirit indwelling in us and bringing us to salvation …….. i have no problem with Galatians …… but …… WHAT DOES THAT MEAN ….. as it has been STRIPPED from CONTEXT ……….. no ….. it trying to turn the grace of God into a law …… FAIL …………

          • Parodyx

            Why don’t we let Sharon answer for herself, rather than assume she’s misapplying scripture. And we can go from there.

          • Amos Moses

            she did …. you interloped the conversation …. take your own advice …………

          • Parodyx

            What was wrong with her answer?

          • Sharon_at_home

            Well said, Parodyx.

          • Oboehner

            Since when does consent have ANY bearing on sexual deviance? You people try to justify one over the other simply based on that? Perversion by any other name is still sick and twisted.

          • james blue

            Oh in that case I’m pretty sure you belong in the twisted group.

          • Oboehner

            If true, I was born that way and have consented to it, so accept me dammit!

          • Oboehner

            If you need an explanation, you may wish to troll elsewhere.

          • Parodyx

            I am not a troll and would like an explanation.

          • james blue

            If you can’t explain you may wish to think before making unsubstantiated connections.

            You may also wish to look up the definition of “troll”

          • Oboehner

            Troll: someone inhabiting a website they obviously disagree with for the express purpose of spreading their unwanted BS.

            Like I said, “If you need an explanation, you may wish to troll elsewhere.”

          • james blue

            This website have NEVER blamed gays for the actions of pedophiles, only people like you have.

            This website doesn’t approve of homosexuality, but it does not try to make a correlation between gays and pedophiles. The person in the article had pictures of children, it didn’t mention the gender of those children, so again, what do gays have to do with this?

          • Oboehner

            The elephant in the room is the sexual deviance is the same, just the object of that deviant desire is different.

            “it was an ad hominem designed to malign liberals for something they didn’t do.” On the contrary, it appears the DNC guy did do that.

          • james blue

            Well male pedophiles also molest girls, so is that indicative of heterosexuality?

            Your second sentence….what??????

          • Oboehner

            Read the story maybe it will become clear.

          • james blue

            I did read the story. I’m thinking you didn’t

          • Oboehner

            You can always try again.

          • Oboehner

            It is a sexual deviance the same as homosexuality, bestiality, incest, necrophilia, etc.

          • james blue

            Hmm. So Christianity is to blame for ISIS….it’s all religion after all

          • Oboehner

            Obtusity knows no bounds.

          • Parodyx

            Actually no, that’s just the extreme right wing religious indoctrination talking.

          • Oboehner

            Nope, that’s just the extreme left wing hypocrite indoctrination talking.

          • Parodyx

            The only hypocrite is yourself. You’re quite content to overlook pedophilia when it’s someone like Josh Duggar.

          • Oboehner

            Your libel accusations are quite disturbing, I suggest you think before you post.

          • Parodyx

            You seem like a very angry person. I think you should deal with that.

          • Nick Bush

            Homosexuality involves consenting adults. The others do not. If you’re too obtuse to know the difference, do the world a favor and get a vasectomy.

          • Oboehner

            If gay is actually by birth, consent is just an irrelevant opinion. But I guess that flies in the face of you brainwashed estrogen-based emotional feel goodness.

          • Parodyx

            No, because it is only religious bigots who try to paint homosexuality as sexual deviance. It doesn’t how many people here tell you this, it seems. I’m sorry that we don’t live in the stone ages anymore and that modern wisdom dictates that homosexuals have the right to not be lynched. You are, of course, always welcome to live in Iran if a religious theocracy appeals to you this much.

          • Oboehner

            The exact same.

          • Parodyx

            Only not at all.

          • Amos Moses

            no, no, no, no, no ……. where is your well publicized “tolerance” for your fellow traveler ……………. “love wins” …….. my you are really showing your BIGOTED tendencies ……

          • Sisyphus

            Does your nonsense have a point? I draw a line at abuse or exploitation.

          • Amos Moses

            my you are a BIGOT ….. but we all knew it already ………. and a liar …….

          • Nick Bush

            If you can’t tell the difference between love and abuse then you’re probably a domestic abuser yourself.

          • Amos Moses

            change the law and it becomes “love” not abuse …. and they were born that way …. and who are you to judge ….. and that is just your opinion …… and you are a BIGOT ……..

        • Amos Moses

          man ….. you really need to sharpen that sword before you hack them to pieces ……………. BRUTAL …………

    • Colin Rafferty

      What do you expect? He’s a criminal and should go to jail. There.

      • Oboehner

        But it’s not murder…

        • Parodyx

          Since when do we only jail murderers?

          • Oboehner

            Don’t believe you are in this conversation.

          • Parodyx

            Drop the exasperated amused-to-death schtick and tell me what you’re talking about.

          • Oboehner

            I would if there was a need.

          • Parodyx

            You’re right, I shouldn’t expect you to change your attitude after all this time.

        • Colin Rafferty

          If you look hard enough, you can always find places that you agree with anyone.

    • Parodyx

      Notice how there was absolutely no reason for any so-called “leftist
      trolls” to say anything at all until you brought up the completely
      ridiculous homosexuality comparison?

      • Oboehner

        What, the staffer wasn’t born that way?

        • Parodyx

          Do we care whether he was? If he is going to prey on children, he’s going to go to jail. Which is what everyone wants and what everyone expects.

          • Oboehner

            But if they prey on each other, that’s fine by you.

          • Parodyx

            That is not physically possible. If they preyed on each other, they’d be dead afterwards.

          • Oboehner

            So all of those children involved in this story are dead? How sad!!

          • Parodyx

            I was referring to homosexuals, as I thought you were.

            The children in the story weren’t, they were abused by a pedophile.

          • Oboehner

            Then you’re saying homos kill each other?

          • Parodyx

            You were the one to make the strange statement “prey on each other”, why don’t you explain what that means?

          • Oboehner

            “If he is going to prey on children…” Is that strange?

          • Parodyx

            If he preys on children, he is a pedophile. Not a homosexual.

          • Oboehner

            If someone preys on a member of the same sex they are a homo. What’s your point?

          • Parodyx

            The point is you keep trying to paint homosexuals and pedophiles as the same thing. We get that you hate both, but they are not the same.

          • Oboehner

            Why do you put words in my mouth, it that how you make yourself seem more righteous? We get that you hate realists, but sexual deviance is sexual deviance.

          • Parodyx

            What point is it you think you are making? Are you not the one to turn this into a gay issue? “Gays exploit each other” – your own words and hardy relevant.

          • Oboehner

            Hardly not relevant, the subjects are the same. It’s not just a gay issue, it’s a mentally disturbed pervert issue.

          • Parodyx

            I’ll just let that hateful comment sit there and stink.

          • Oboehner

            Science, the most misused label on earth. ROFL

          • Parodyx

            No, only the most misunderstood by fundamentalists who seem to think it is the same thing as faith.

          • Nick Bush

            You and Amos Moses should just get married already. You two have the same mental capacity (or rather the lack thereof).

          • Oboehner

            ROFL, what an absolutely genius response… or whatever.

          • Oboehner

            The only difference is the subject of their perversion, everything else is exactly the same.

            “We get that” You apparently are as perceptive of that as you are perverts. But I guess you must mean that you love both.

          • Parodyx

            Homosexuality isn’t a perversion. I recognize however that certain branches of faith-based hate teach this, even though it flies directly in the face of the very science everyone EXCEPT you knows isn’t lying to them. But then, you deny evolution so your willful desire to hate makes sense in that regard.

            I don’t love homosexuality in the same way that I don’t love heterosexuality. I accept both as valid forms of human sexuality. Like most people. And that isn’t “appealing to authority”. It’s accepting diversity and empathy, learning from science and rejecting hate.

          • Oboehner

            Homosexuality is most definitely a perversion. I recognize however that certain branches of wacko far-left based hate teach this, even though it flies directly in the face of the very science everyone EXCEPT you knows isn’t lying to them. But then, you deny evolution has NO proof so your willful desire to hate makes sense in that regard.

            “It’s accepting diversity and empathy” Accept one you accept them all or you’re just another useless hypocrite.

          • Parodyx

            Kindergarten time again? I would have thought by now that parroting back would have embarrassed you enough times to know not to do it. But fine, let’s just point out how much sense it makes to call what I say “left-based hate” when you’re the one using words like perversion and mental issue. And how when I say leave them alone, you want to lock them all up at the very least. Because your loving religion says so. The evolution denial is just icing on the whole science-denying cake.

            I accept all people who live and let live. Sorry you don’t understand that that includes homosexuals…or whatever disgusting euphemism you have for them today.

          • Molon Labe

            You know nothing of science and the scientific method. You subscribe to scientism which is a religious philosophy. You believe evolution to be fact when in fact it is a theory. Macro evolution has not been seen or repeated. Mutations are not evolution so don’t try it. Mutations introduce a defect that either corrupts or destroys information. It never adds new and improved information to allow a species to evolve to a higher species. Micro-evolution is simply the variation within a specific species and is the only thing that has been observed. We have mosquitoes that have been preserved in petrified sap. Guess what? Its the same darn pest that I have in back yard today. You are an immoral man that wishes there isn’t a Creator or moral judge so you can justify your perversions. Nothing new here.

          • Parodyx

            Ridiculous. I don’t subscribe to “scientism”, there isn’t a bit of science I don’t subscribe to that hasn’t been tested and found to be accurate. We have transitional fossils and nylon-eating bacteria. We win.

          • Peter Leh

            So if you have sex with a prepubescent girl you are not a pedophile but a heterosexual?

          • Oboehner

            Your point?

          • Peter Leh

            just quoting you.

            Good to know that a person having sex with a prepubescent, of the opposite sex, is not a pedophile but a regular ole good American heterosexual.

          • Oboehner

            One has to have said something if you are going to quote them. Since your post is so asinine, I’m not going to waste time on it.

  • AustinRocks

    The mainstream media will sweep this under the rug. Their narrative of “pedophile priests” doesn’t allow for all the politicians and teachers and counselors who prey on kids.

    I’m all for castration with a blowlamp for rapists and pedophiles.

    He wasn’t identified as a Christian nor did he identify himself as one. Not the church’s business really unless Christians were involved.

  • yabruf

    “He’s going to be undergoing psychosexual therapy to get to the root of this issue.”

    The issue is that he is a sodomite and the only therapy he needs is a bullet to the back of the head.

    There is a reason God refers to homosexuals as stupid animals. You can’t rehabilitate them, they can only be put down.

    • Parodyx

      No, God doesn’t refer to homosexuals as “stupid animals”.

    • Colin Rafferty

      There is nothing in the story that says he is gay. He appears to be a pedophile, but it does not give the gender of the children in the pictures.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    It’s a miracle that Western Sodom still sees child porns as a crime. The Western culture must stop indoctrinating children to commit immorality. This criminal is a result of secular liberalism’s education.

    • Peter Leh

      which country is it legal?

      How can a man be convicted if this country if runs by said libs?

      BTW you dont live here .

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        It’s not about legality but the whole culture itself. Secular Western culture and its mental slaves are so sexually chaotic that it seems like a miracle that the civilization can rightfully see child porn as evil, where they teach children Sodomy in schools legally. Culture transcends national borders. The Lord’s justice be done.

    • Dianne

      Grace, you really are a Western
      bashing buffoon. You need to take that HUGE HYPOCRITICAL BEAM out of YOUR own EASTERN/ASIAN eye first and STOP BLAMING everything on the West. Take a course in Christianity 101 and LEARN to LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR as you love yourself.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Yes, the West controls everything on earth, and it is forcing mankind Sodomy this century. Mentally ill. Every free person must resist its new filthy imperialism. I love the Westerners and Easterners and Southerners the same in Jesus; you are judging me. I tell the Easterners to stop abortion and dog-eating. Dianne, make your comment short like this, then I can reply you faster.

        • Dianne

          Grace, Christian love DOES NOT criticize other nationalities nor make general statements like you do. Satan is the god of this world and his EVIL INFLUENCE ON MANKIND IS EVERYWHERE! You can point out the SIN, but please STOP CONDEMNING A WHOLE REGION OF PEOPLE. No country is required to accept homosexuality and many still do not. Your country has homosexuality and other egregious sins of the sexual nature too. PLEASE STOP CONDEMNING WESTERNERS and focus on condemning the sin. Do you understand the DIFFERENCE?

  • Peter Leh

    Child porn is not a left or right issue.

    Porn is not a left or right issue.

    • Dianne

      Yes Peter, it is a sin issue and a criminal issue.

  • Dianne

    I seriously hope and pray that he gets help. However he broke the law and should be convicted of these crimes and spend a considerable amount of time in prison for this egregious act against children. Also I hope that the wicked villains that made and participated in this despicable and perverted video are caught and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
