“Sometimes he would choke us, put a pillow over our faces, tie us up, use little chopsticks and knives and stab us.”
— Testimony of one of Daryl VonNeida’s victims
Bizarre. Gruesome. Avoidable. Something you won’t read in the mainstream media reports about the freakish Daryl E. VonNeida — who was convicted today of 14 charges of sexually (more…)

“We must worship a different God because there is no way that my God would have wanted George Zimmerman to kill my teenage son.”
— Tracy Martin
George Zimmerman, Mister Conceal-Carry, Self-Appointed Neighborhood Cop who in February gunned down 17-year-old Trayvon Martin (who was — gasp! — black — and armed with — gasp! — a can of Arizona Iced Tea and a bag of Skittles), tells Faux News flack Sean Hannity that his confrontation with Trayvon which ended in the teen’s death was simply “God’s plan.” (And he’s not one to question the Almighty!)

We’re tempted to say, “The two inbred degenerates you see at left are Diana and Samuel Franklin of Butler, Georgia,” but we can’t say that, as we have no evidence they are actually inbred. So, we’ll just give you a news video and the facts from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation — after this note from WTVM, which doesn’t surprise us at all: “[A] neighbor said that Diana Franklin would only feed her daughter bread and water as punishment for days on end. The neighbor says that Diana Franklin told her that she was ‘doing what the Bible says.’” (more…)
“Phoenix prosecutor John Tutelman recounted Salman’s criminal history and allegations by neighbors and concluded in court: ‘This is a man who does what he wants, when he wants, and nobody can stop him.’”
“Republicans don’t have any more respect for the Bible than they do the Constitution. Conservatives talk about their dedication to the Constitution but they support the Arizona anti-immigration law which is a mockery of our founding document. Right wingers talk about their the importance of their faith but they completely ignore the biblical injunctions to help the poor.
Claims to fame: “Prosperity Gospel” Pentecostal senior pastor, Shiloh Institutional Church of God in Christ, Fort Worth, Texas; voodoo priest; accused rapist and abuser
Moral apex: There’s just so much to choose from… but if pressed, we’d have to say anally raping a church member with a wooden club — although the constant beatings of this woman, and more than 20 other members of his flock (according to the alleged victims) over the course of more than two decades run a very close second.
(You realize we have to say “alleged,” right, until he’s actually been convicted of something? Not that that means we don’t believe it’s all true; we just don’t want to get sued for libel.)
Julie Lyons of The Dallas Observer has, so far, covered the whole revolting and downright weird story better than anyone.
What’s worse: Over more than two decades, numerous complaints were made to the Church of God in Christ about Allen’s behavior, and nothing was done.
One victim explained why she put up with Allen’s abuse: “I really felt like he was doing what God told him.”
Where things stand now: Allen was suspended from his “pastoral duties” — and promptly began fighting the suspension; he says that his church had was never officially a COGIC church, so he doesn’t have to abide by COGIC “discipline.” He’s also fighting lawsuits by a couple of his victims.
What does Allen have to say about the allegations against him? Of course, he denies everything. He won’t talk to the press, his lawyers consistently decline to comment, and he pleaded the Fifth (to every question) in a recent deposition.
Suggested Bible reading for Mr. Allen:
But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
— 2 Peter 2:1
Claims to fame: Failed businessman; son of the 41st President of the United States; squatter, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Moral apex: Sorry, can’t list everything. Only so much disk space, you know. Besides, we can’t delve into any of Junior’s alleged sexual peccadilloes (like, oh, his alleged extramarital affair with one Tammy Phillips, which reportedly began in 1997 and ended in 1999) without worrying about a late-night knock at the door.
Besides, Bush’s verifiable crimes are so voluminous, allegations of a lousy extramarital affair (or three, or ten) mean nothing by comparison. Remember the mantra, babes: When Clinton lied, nobody died.
So let’s just leave it at this…
— At the Republican National Convention in 1988, when asked by a Hartford Courant reporter what he and his father talked about when they weren’t discussing politics (as reported by Salon).
Suggested Bible reading for Mr. Bush:
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
— 2 Timothy 3:1-5
