Another Child Molester Strikes the Kirk

Email From Christ Church

“On October 7, [redacted], a teen in our congregation, was caught molesting a much younger boy. As far as we currently know, no molestation has occurred in our church context. Our counsel to the parents was to notify the authorities immediately, which was done that same night, and the authorities are now investigating. Since he was caught, he has been isolated in order prevent any further danger. [redacted] has confessed to the offense, and maintains that there were no other children. We do not yet know if this is true. So if you have any reason to be suspicious about any interaction that [redacted] has had with your child, of course we encourage you to deal with it inside your family as you deem appropriate. At the same time, with regard to contacting the authorities, please feel free to include us so that we can help connect you with the appropriate people. . . .”

“you get more of what you subsidize, and less of what you penalize”

One of the fundamental laws of life, and therefore of business, is that you get more of what you subsidize, and less of what you penalize. In every social context, certain behaviors are rewarded (in some way), and other behaviors are not rewarded. Once the calculus of blessings and curses, rewards and disincentives, is done, you will have less of what you chastised, and more of what you blessed.

“detestable and disobedient and worthless”

“To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They profess to know God, but by their deeds they deny Him, being detestable and disobedient and worthless for any good deed.” Titus 1:15–16

“Misogyny is a sin because God hates it, and He will judge those guilty of unrepentant continuance in this sin on the Last Day”

And last, it should be noted (yet again) that all moral claims require a moral foundation. Misogyny is a sin because God hates it, and He will judge those guilty of unrepentant continuance in this sin on the Last Day, along with those guilty of other sins against His Word. But if there is no God, or no judgment, or no fixed moral standards, then everything reduces to a matter of personal preference. And if you are an enraged Hindu, whose personal preference was to have received a larger dowry, Melynda has outlined for us what happens then. True relativistic multi-culturalism will have to swallow an awful lot. Open wide!
