Chicago archdiocese wins claim against false sex abuse allegations…

01) Chicago archdiocese wins claim against false sex abuse allegations

“A Chicago man who filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Chicago alleging sexual abuse by a notorious former priest has been ordered to repay the church for the money it spent defending itself, a Cook County circuit court judge ruled earlier this month. Church officials in Chicago say that revelations regarding other fraudulent cases could be forthcoming, a prospect that both the archdiocese and victim advocates say will be a disservice to genuine victims.

The man, identified in court documents only as John J. Doe, said in a 2015 lawsuit that he had been sexually assaulted by Daniel McCormack, a former priest who was convicted in 2007 of molesting five boys associated with a Chicago Catholic school that was connected to the parish where he was pastor.

While serving time in prison, Mr. Doe discussed plans for the lawsuit on the telephone with several people, including a cousin who had previously settled with the archdiocese over abuse claims against Mr. McCormack. During the initial phase of the lawsuit, lawyers for the archdiocese subpoenaed more than 300 hours of audio recordings from those phone calls. The church then found evidence they claimed proved Mr. Doe was lying about the abuse.”

Not every alter boy gets touched…But some would have found such a history, to be financially lucrative.

01) Disney Channel To Introduce Gay Storyline On Children’s Sitcom

“Disney Channel will introduce a gay storyline between two young boys this Friday when the premiere for the second-season for the popular series “Andi Mack” airs.

The children’s series will show one of its young male characters realizing he might have developed romantic feelings for another young male classmate, according to the Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.

[…]

“‘Andi Mack’ is a story about tweens figuring out who they are; Terri Minsky, the cast and everyone involved in the show takes great care in ensuring that it’s appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity,” a spokesperson for Disney Channel said of the upcoming season.

The average viewer’s age for the series is 10 years old.”

I think, it’s time has come…

…I would have identified with this sort of thing, when I was a kid…and especially as a tween.

Corey Feldman Opens Up About His Plan To Expose Hollywood Pedophiles – TODAY…

01) Corey Feldman Opens Up About His Plan To Expose Hollywood Pedophiles – TODAY


“On the heels of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, former child star Corey Feldman is trying to fund a film he says will expose a ring of pedophiles in the movie industry. In an exclusive interview on TODAY, Feldman tells Matt Lauer, “It will be a very true story, we will have every name.”


02) Corey Feldman names some of his alleged abusers

“Corey Feldman has finally named a few of the men he claims abused him as a child star.

The eighties child actor, who has alleged he and Corey Haim suffered abuse at the hands of a Hollywood pedophile ring for years, appeared on “Dr. Oz” on Thursday, naming bit actor and his former assistant Jon Grissom, before calling the LAPD’s Elite Special Assault Section.

[…]

On Monday on Megyn Kelly, Feldman also named child talent manager and convicted sex offender Marty Weiss, who has not commented on the allegations.”

Okay…

…Now, we are finally moving in a dedicated direction.

Neither Jon Grissom nor Marty Weiss sound familiar…and there is question on whether they are genuinely powerful in Hollywood…But at least Corey is starting to put names to his allegations.

People talk about Corey having gone to the police back in 1993, and telling all…and there not being legal grounds on which to press charges…And they act like the main public is supposed to be satisfied with this…over all these years, where Corey has been appealing to the main public, yet withholding critical information like this.

…He wasn’t dealing with the police anymore…He was habitually coming to the public, and appealing to us, without ever presenting to us anything tangible.

This is what’s been so frustrating…He shows up in the media every so many years, to poke a stick at the fire…and rile up the public into an anti-pedophile frenzy…but he constantly refused to back anything up, with even the bare minimal of information.

What he told the police back in 1993 doesn’t count for anything here…He hasn’t been appealing to them, all these many years.

How Calling Kevin Spacey a Pedophile Hurts the Gay Community…

01) Don’t know what to make of this article

02) How Calling Kevin Spacey a Pedophile Hurts the Gay Community

” Let me be as clear as possible that Spacey’s alleged conduct, imposing himself unwanted on a 14-year-old boy, is in no way defensible, nor is closeted queerness an excuse that authorizes bad behavior. (Spacey’s statement doesn’t dispute either of these points.) However, we can condemn the alleged events of Rapp’s story without falling into the trap of fueling moral panic around the specter of the pedophile. And in its pitchfork-and-torches response, that’s exactly what the gay community is doing. It used to be straights who “pedophiled” gays to deny them civil rights and social inclusion. Now we apparently pedophile our own for moral purification and self-satisfaction.”

It sounds like some degree of awareness exists…that cannibalizing everyone who “steps out of line”, is a socially destructive behavior by it’s nature.

These things are like a rattlesnake…They’ll ultimately bite anyone, and sow distrust, discord and hate within any community…They’ll poison and kill a community, if allowed to go unrestrained.

Ostrich Parasitic Syndrome Strikes Physicist Lawrence Krauss (THE SAAD TRUTH_536)…

Who is a terrorist?…

…Is it like religion, in the sense that it requires a minimum number of people [in this case, terrorized], before the perpetrator is recognized as “a terrorist”?

Often times, we do recognize people with limited areas of target, as “terrorizing a community”…or “terrorizing a family”…and such.

How does it change things and make them “not terrorism”, if anyone is still being terrorized?

They may not be organized with other terrorists…But if someone is being terrorized…isn’t it still terrorism?

And what of those plots that never came to fruition, where nobody realized they were targeted for terrorism…Are the people behind those terrorists?…They could, realistically, still be charged with conspiracy to commit terrorism.

Not so sure how much I agree with Gad on this one.

Of course…Gad is correct, that motive is vital.

…but if someone cracks, and they start creating an atmosphere of terror for other people…

…in my book, that makes them some degree of terrorist.

Just because they may not expand it to a level of affecting broader social change, doesn’t mean they’re not a small time terrorist, seeking petty, self serving goals.

01) Paul Ryan Insists That Indictments Won’t Stop Him From Harming The American People


“Paul Ryan isn’t going to let the fact that his Party is being indicted left and right get in the way of his true passion, which is screwing over the American public in order to give billions of dollars to the already-wealthy. Ryan told reporters on Monday that he wouldn’t let the indictments distract him from enacting his dangerous tax cuts for millionaires or any of his other anti-consumer goals. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

It’s A Man’s ‘National Duty’ To Rape Women Who Expose Their Legs…

01) It’s A Man’s ‘National Duty’ To Rape Women Who Expose Their Legs


“A prominent Egyptian lawyer disgusted humane viewers of an Arabic TV show by claiming that women who wore revealing jeans deserved to get raped. He went so far as to imply that men should be proud of abusing such women, calling it men’s “national duty.”

To be fair…he is being strongly contested [possibly chewed out], for saying such a thing. His views are extremist and inhumane…but there is hope, in the push back he is receiving.
