The same thing all theologians lied about ... that the gods spoke to them, telling them who was evil and who was holy and who would be saved and who would be lost TO salvation.

Did you ever hear of the Christian "Ranters" of the 1650's?

They believed in the idea that once saved, nothing they did could change the fact that they would be saved. They were loose sexually, boozers, and carousers, et cetera.

People believe that they can inject the gods' to accept their own thought-processes as being pleasing TO the gods.

Arrogance knows no limits.

Christian preachers are ALL "ranters" in the sense of believing they know who will be saved ... and it's always the ones that do the preaching.

Odd ... isn't it ... that we never hear of a preacher who preaches that he or she will be the one going to hell?.

However ... there ARE those preachers who commit suicide. My guess is they so detested what they were preaching day after day after day, they got out of life the only way they saw as an exit.

What a shame that religion has caused so much unnecessary pain in life.

At issue was whether Southern baptist preachers are sexually abusing children. The site clearly says they are. The first one was found guilty of over 150 counts of sodomy with boys 8-12 years old. The issue WAS NOT about who has the biggest bond, or cyber sex with minor girls. I checked the first 10 or so, 3 didn't link to the story but the other 7 committed sexual abuse of minors, boys and girls. Sorry preston, no one lied.
That is very revealing when compared to 7095 pedophile catlick priests!!!!!

Thanks for allowing me to choose June. However, I'm still trying get preston to explain to me where Dan lied about Southern baptist ministers sexually abusing children.

Barry Baker (trustee of Baptist Children’s Home & Family Services, Illinois): While a youth worker at First Baptist Church of Fairfield, Illinois, Baker wrote to a judge to urge leniency in the sentencing of a prominent pastor who pled guilty on child sex charges. In doing so, he put blame on how girls dress by saying:“The girls come to youth meetings wearing much less than is fair for us as boys and men.” Two years after that letter, Illinois Baptists elected Baker as a trustee of their Children’s Home & Family Services.

Murrill Boitnott (former senior pastor of Wayside Baptist Church in Miami and currently the president of Macedonian Call Ministries): Even after staff minister Keith Geren admitted to sexually abusing 10 teen boys, pastor Boitnott couldn’t bring himself to recommend that Geren be fired or even that he have no further contact with church youth. Later, it came out that Geren had also abused boys during his prior stint at First Baptist Church of Lakeland where Boitnott was also working at the time.

Augie Boto (an SBC vice-president): Rationalized and justified the Southern Baptist Convention’s inclusion of criminally convicted sex offenders on the Southern Baptist registry of ministers. Though Boto himself acknowledges that abusive ministers have been able to church-hop and that most sex offenders have no criminal record, he nevertheless insists that the Southern Baptist Convention cannot keep denominational records on credibly-accused clergy child molesters. Boto was identified by the SBC’s president as the de-facto “man in charge of the subcommittee” that was supposed to study Baptist clergy sex abuse but effectively did nothing.

Keith Brickell (senior pastor of Sylvan Hill First Baptist Church in Sherwood, Arkansas): Despite complaints about the principal of the church's school, and even though those complaints alleged "inappropriate behavior" with female students, Brickell did not take action or go to the police. An investigation was initiated only when an anonymous caller contacted the police. The police then contacted Brickell, not vice-versa.

There's about 600,000 clergy in the US. About 39,000 are Catholic. Using your own number of 1.7%(663), that puts your number over by about 6,432.

Conversely, if you use the established protestant number of 3% of the remaining 561,000 it comes out to 16,830 protestant pedophile pastors.

Yes, very revealing.

Morris Chapman (former president of the SBC Executive Committee): Despite the vote of 8600 Southern Baptist “messengers,” directing the Executive Committee to conduct a study on Baptist clergy sex abuse, Chapman never even took it seriously enough to set aside a budget for the study. The Nashville Scene provided this summary of the Executive Committee’s response to abuse victims’ calls for help:“Abuse is sad. But because of that pesky matter of church autonomy, we can’t remove predatory pastors from the pulpit. Please stop calling and emailing about your suffering. Our hands are tied, but we hear prayer heals all wounds. God bless.” Think that sounds ludicrous? That’s the point. And the fact that Chapman himself may have preached it with more pious-sounding words doesn't make it any less ludicrous.(Read more about the Executive Committee's report in EthicsDaily and the Nashville Scene.)

James Crittenden (former staff minister at Southmont Baptist Church in Denton, TX): When the church’s senior pastor was sued on allegations of sexually abusing a 14-year-old, and after the pastor made an apology, Crittenden tried to hush it up (while leaving the pastor in the pulpit) by asking the newspaper not to run the story and telling them it would be destructive to “the cause of Christ.”

Wm. Jan Daehnert (former director at Baptist General Convention of Texas): For years, Daehnert was head of the BGCT office that keeps a file of ministers reported by churches for sexual abuse,“including child molestation.” Daehnert publicly justified the secrecy of the file, and the failure of the BGCT to warn people in the pews, by saying “the list is given to us in confidence by congregations that have had ministers confess or where substantial evidence has been uncovered.”

Vern Daugherty (pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Crossville, TN): At the sentencing hearing for a fellow pastor who admitted guilt on a child sex charge, pastor Daugherty publicly attacked and trashed the 14-year-old victim.

Not really.

I've confessed with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, as has every faithful Catholic.

Now tell me what else one needs to do?

here is the THIRD person on this list.
Robert Harvey Alexander figured he'd never be caught. He didn't use his real name, or his real email address. He logged in at computers at public libraries to send emails to his targets in which he threatened to destroy their reputations with online postings if they wouldn't engage in "cybering" and phone sex with him. He even taunted his victims that the police would never be able to find him.

SO YOU GOT CAUGHT LYING ALSO.
