63 priests in Kerala face criminal charges
Don Sebastian , Friday, October 19, 2007  04:33 IST     

Offences include murder, rape, molestation, assault, abduction, theft and cheating

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Forget the sheep, the Church has a tough task ahead in reclaiming its lost shepherds. If the data released by the Kerala Police is any indication, the weeds have spread among the wheat.

As many as 63 Christian priests in the state face criminal charges pending against them, reveals documents yielded as per the Right to Information Act.

Murder, attempt to murder, rape, molestation, assault, abduction, theft, break-in, cheating…almost every offence under the Indian Penal Code —and of course, the Ten Commandments — has been committed by the deviant priests. Worse, the biblical whitewashed tombs are still at the helm of affairs in parishes.
Going by the crime records of the past seven years, two priests have been accused of murder while ten are charged with attempt to murder. Yet another is booked for aiding in a murder. Joseph Antony and Maria Lal Manjali are accused of homicide.

Babu Chirakkavur, Mathew Jacob, ET Johnson, KP Mathai, Joy T Varghese, Jiju Varghese, Reji are accused of attempt to murder in cases registered in different police stations. Giving them company is Paul Payyappilly, parish priest of Pavaratti St Joseph’s Church, held under Explosives Act.

Priests also excel in crimes of passion. Five of them are rape accused. Jose Thadathil and TJ Joy, a CSI parish priest, are just two. Jose works in the Divine Retreat Centre, a pilgrim centre near Thrissur facing criminal inquiry ordered by the Kerala High Court. Sisters Viola and Nirmala are also involved in the case.

Father Joseph in Kollam is caught in an immoral traffic case. Ernakulam Infant Jesus Church vicar Thomas is an accused in a molestation case while Father Paul Vilangumpara is accused of molestation and abduction.

Yet another priest in coastal Thiruvananthapuram is accused of rape. Most of the priests have incurred cheating charges against them as part of their managerial functions.

Thomas Pothanamuzhi, Fr Thomas Kizhakkedath and Fr Ouseph — the principal, manager and former principal of St Aloysius College, Edathuva — have been accused of breach of trust.

A similar case has been charged in 2005 against  Andrews Thekkekkandam, a vicar in Thamarasseri, the nerve centre of the Catholic Church’s present tirade against the Left government.

As many as five priests are accused of theft and break-in, taking the total number of the seeds on rocky ground to 63. This list excludes the suspects in the sensational murder of a nun in Kottayam in 1992.

Earlier, the CBI had taken two priests and two nuns to undergo truth serum tests in connection with the death of Sister Abhaya, who was found dead in a well on the premises of Pius X Convent, Kottayam.

Indo-American Christians protest violence in Karnataka, Orissa

Washington (PTI): A group of Christians of Indian origin held a prayer vigil here coinciding with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit to White House to protest the ongoing violence against the community in Orissa and Karnataka.

The event organised by the Federation of Indian American Christian Organisations of North America (FIACONA) at Lafayette Square, across the street from the White House was attended by a large number of people, organisers said.

“A clear and definite pattern is emerging from these coordinated assaults on the Christian population in these states where the BJP is in power on one or another pretext,” they said in a statement.

The Federation also blamed the Indian government for failing to stop the violence, which has led to loss of lives and damage to churches.

It demanded a number of things including rehabilitation of the victims and a ban on Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Bajrang Dal and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

The rally was supported and coordinated by organisations including Jubilee campaign, Christian Solidarity International and all Christian church organisations.

Quotations:

bullet The destruction of the Indians of the Americas was, far and away, the most massive act of genocide in the history of the world.” David E. Stannard. 4
bullet This violent corruption needn’t define us…. We can say, yes, this happened, and we are ashamed. We repudiate the greed. We recognize and condemn the evil. And we see how the harm has been perpetuated. But, five hundred years later, we intend to mean something else in the world.” Barry Lopez. 3
bullet By then [1891] the native population had been reduced to 2.5% of its original numbers and 97.5% of the aboriginal land base had been expropriated….Hundreds upon hundreds of native tribes with unique languages, learning, customs, and cultures had simply been erased from the face of the earth, most often without even the pretense of justice or law.” Peter Montague 1

Overview:

The population of North America prior to the first sustained European contact in 1492 CE is a matter of active debate. Various estimates of the pre-contact Native population of the continental U.S. and Canada range from 1.8 to over 12 million. 4 Over the next four centuries, their numbers were reduced to about 237,000 as Natives were almost wiped out. Author Carmen Bernand estimates that the Native population of what is now Mexico was reduced from 30 million to only 3 million over four decades. 13 Peter Montague estimates that Europeans once ruled over 100 million Natives throughout the Americas.

European extermination of Natives started with Christopher Columbus’ arrival in San Salvador in 1492. Native population dropped dramatically over the next few decades. Some were directly murdered by Europeans. Others died indirectly as a result of contact with introduced diseases for which they had no resistance — mainly smallpox, influenza, and measles.

Later European Christian invaders systematically murdered additional Aboriginal people, from the Canadian Arctic to South America. They used warfare, death marches, forced relocation to barren lands, destruction of their main food supply — the Buffalo — and poisoning. Some Europeans actually shot at Indians for target practice. 14

Oppression continued into the 20th century, through actions by governments and religious organizations which systematically destroyed Native culture and religious heritage. One present-day byproduct of this oppression is suicide. Today, Canadian Natives have the highest suicide rate of any identifiable population group in the world. Native North Americans are not far behind.

The genocide against American Natives was one of the most massive, and longest lasting genocidal campaigns in human history. It started, like all genocides, with the oppressor treating the victims as sub-humans. It continued until almost all Natives were wiped of the face of the earth, along with much of their language, culture and religion.

We believe that:

bullet Only the mass murder of European Jews by Christians from 306 to 1945 CE was of longer duration.
bullet Only the mass murder by the government of the USSR of about 41 million of its citizens (1917 to 1987), and by the government of China of about 35 million of its citizens (1949 to 1987) may have involved greater loss of life.

The following essay contains only a small sampling of the horrendous atrocities inflicted on Natives by Europeans.

Christopher Columbus:

Christopher Columbus has been a genuine American hero since at least 1792 when the Society of St. Tammany in New York City first held a dinner to honor the man and his deeds.Columbus Day has been celebrated as a national holiday since 1934 in honor of this dedicated and courageous explorer. Unfortunately, his character had a dark side.

Columbus described the Arawaks — the Native people in the West Indies — as timid, artless, free, and generous. He rewarded them with death and slavery. For his second voyage to the Americas:

Columbus took the title ‘Admiral of the Ocean Sea’ and proceeded to unleash a reign of terror unlike anything seen before or since. When he was finished, eight million Arawaks — virtually the entire native population of Hispaniola — had been exterminated by torture, murder, forced labor, starvation, disease and despair.” 1

A Spanish missionary, Bartolome de las Casas, described eye-witness accounts of mass murder, torture and rape. 2 Author Barry Lopez, summarizing Las Casas’ report wrote:

“One day, in front of Las Casas, the Spanish dismembered, beheaded, or raped 3000 people. ‘Such inhumanities and barbarisms were committed in my sight,’ he says, ‘as no age can parallel….’ The Spanish cut off the legs of children who ran from them. They poured people full of boiling soap. They made bets as to who, with one sweep of his sword, could cut a person in half. They loosed dogs that ‘devoured an Indian like a hog, at first sight, in less than a moment.’ They used nursing infants for dog food.” 3

The Spaniards eventually went on to conquer Mexico and the southern U.S.  read rest here

Ex Porn addict Christian Pastor’s website shows you how God wanted you to have great sex

Pastor’s website shows you how God wanted you to have great sex
Melbourne, Aug 30 : A website with a name like Puresextucson.com is advertising classes about sex, but in a ‘Godly way’.

Created by a Tucson Baptist pastor, the site claims “God wants you to have great sex.”

Pastor Jeremiah McDuffie of The Element Community Church said the Web site is tied in to a series of sermons he plans to deliver on consecutive Sundays starting Sept. 7 on the issue of sex.

Ultimately, he hopes to open up dialogue on a subject he says is too often regarded as taboo in houses of worship. Yet it’s also at the root of so many issues he hears about from worshippers and others who seek him out for pastoral counselling, he said.

“Sex wasn’t invented in a dark alley behind a porn shop. It’s part of God’s design,” The Daily Telegraph quoted McDuffie’s website, as stating.

McDuffie admitted that mailers sent to 35,000 Tucson homes to promote the sermons have generated some complaints.

“The negative calls we’ve had were basically from people saying this was a subject we shouldn’t be dealing with in church, that it’s inappropriate,” said McDuffie, who confesses he was once a porn addict.

McDuffie said that he hopes the sermons will help open an honest dialogue on a subject that is often considered taboo in houses of worship.

Persecuted Kerala Christian priest held for minor’s rape

http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?newsid=1170907
Kerala priest, film director, politician held for minor’s rape

KOCHI (Kerala): The Kerala police on Friday arrested a Christian priest, a film director and a politician for the alleged rape and abuse of a minor girl.

The arrested included Father Kuriakose Mangalath, film director Rajan Sithara, and Kerala Congress (Joseph) party activist Shibhu.

While Sithara was arrested by a special investigation team (SIT) in Thrissur, the other two were taken into custody from Kottayam.

The case pertains to 2002, when a 17-year-old girl came to Kochi in search of work. She fell into a trap of sex racketeers and was allegedly abused by a large number of people. The victim also alleged that pornographic films were made using her.

The girl was later arrested in Thoppumpadi near Kochi. Since then, the case has hit the headlines as Thoppumpadi sex scandal.

The police, based on the statement of the victim, has listed names of 69 people who had abused her when she was a minor and arrested 13 of them. The list reportedly has several high-profile names.

The investigations later went into a limbo and all the 13 arrested people were granted bail.

In 2006, the girl’s mother moved the Kerala Hight Court, which appointed the SIT.

Persecuted Bangalore pastor exploits widow sexually, films and sells her sex videos: Christian love

A pastor, a widow and seedy designs

Widow charges him with exploiting her sexually, recording the act on hidden cameras and selling it to foreigners By Hemanth Kashyap and M K Ashoka Posted On Saturday, September 20, 2008

The `sex scam’ that rocked the city on Thursday has taken an intriguing twist with the victim charging the pastor with secretly filming her sexual acts and selling the tapes to foreigners.

The widow, 40, in a complaint to the Jnanabharati police, has alleged that pastor Babu Prasad of Mizpha Church, located in Rajajingar’s Gopalpur area, sexually exploited her on the promise of marrying her.

The woman, who attempted suicide twice on learning about the `porn CDs’, narrated her travails to Bangalore Mirror: “I lost my husband in an accident 23 years ago and I am a mother of a college-going son. I continued my husband’s business and was leading a decent life till I was taken to the Mizpha church by a friend.”

She was introduced to Pastor Prasad. Subsequently, she took a liking for his motivational talks. Prasad allegedly knew she was emotionally weak. “Prasad’s wife and relatives started visiting my house and persuaded me to embrace their faith. Prasad also used my house for conducting prayers. On April 1, asked me to return home from my factory. On my return, he exploited me sexually and got the whole act recorded.”

She claimed Prasad took her to a hotel on St Mark’s Road on May 4 and introduced her to two Americans. “He gave them the CD and asked me to spend a night with them. I refused and managed to escape with the CD. When I played it at home, I realised how I was deceived,” she said.

“When I questioned him, he said there was nothing wrong in making porn videos and selling it to foreigners,” she said and charged Prasad with taking away her ornaments and using her to obtain a Rs 12 lakh loan.

Meanwhile, Prasad lodged a complaint with the Vijayanagar police accusing her of drugging him before forcing him to have sex with her. Bangalore Mirror tried to contact him on his cellphone, but in vain.

The police said the pastor is absconding. They, however, admit the case is a sensitive one.
