“When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart, whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation.” —Proverbs 26:25–26 Continue reading →
“So if someone with a long enough face to be a dowager from Human Resources tells me that I am no longer permitted, as a cis-white-male, to make any observations or comparisons, metaphorical or otherwise, about any aspect of the female anatomy, guess what I am going to do? Guess what my next blog post is going to be about?” —Douglas Wilson Continue reading →
“All the varied expressions of transgressive sexuality currently being celebrated in our culture, and now by the highest court in the land, are out of accord with God’s creational design for human sexuality, and are therefore sinful in the eyes of God. Whenever men set themselves up arrogantly to challenge God’s holy standards for sexuality, seeking to teach contrary to what God has taught us in His Word, they are vainly attempting something that is not within their authority to accomplish. We cannot bestow dignity where God has withheld it, and we cannot join together what God has determined shall remain forever separated.” —Douglas Wilson Continue reading →
“Steven’s father refers to the revelation of Steven’s sexual offending as his, the father’s, personal ‘9-11.’ Steven’s parents see this matter as a terrible tragedy, secondarily for Steven and primarily for the victims involved.” Dean Wullenwaber
In 2005 David Sitler, father of serial pedophile Steven Sitler, retained lawyer Dean Wullenwaber to primarily represent his son (PMR 23, 24) — not primarily ensure swift justice for his son’s victims. Now, twelve-and-a-half years later, Dave Sitler pays attorneys to force a helpless child live in the same home as his pedophiliac father. “Steven’s sexual offending” is a “personal 9-11” for his victims and for his son. No one else.
Some people have forgotten the terror of 9-11. Others never understood it. And for others, 9-11 is much more personal than words could ever describe.
Bad Religion: “separatist . . . fundamentalists . . . paranoia, crankishness, and all the other pathologies of the religious ghetto”
“How did anybody in Christ Church think it was a good idea to encourage and enable a young woman in their community to marry a convicted pedophile? I cannot comprehend it. And I cannot comprehend the apparent unwillingness of the congregation to hold themselves and their pastor accountable for this catastrophe that has befallen the Sitler wife and child.” —Rod DreherContinue reading →
The Presiding Ministers of the Communion of Reformed Evangelical Churches inadvertently demonstrated exactly what the words “grievous malfeasance” and “corruption” mean. They embodied it. Continue reading →
“There is no biblical case for that. If his wife is fully apprised of all the facts, and she was, and she wanted to marry him, should I excommunicate them both for marrying? Don’t I need a verse or something?” —Douglas Wilson Continue reading →
“I’m not sure where all of you stand religiously, but next time you call an entire group of people rapists based on one horrifying event, ask yourself how you would like to be classified in the same way because of someone else’s disgraceful choices.” Continue reading →
