Re: In the Name of God??
Here's a great question for you. Why does God permit people who are obviously
unrepentant sinners to assume authority in his church(es)?
Art Phillips, 43, of Arizona, was arrested in March and arraigned in April for
fondling a 15-year-old girl and "solicitation to commit commercial sexual
exploitation of a minor" (read: he wanted to take nude photos of her). Phillips
is a Mormon sunday school teacher.
Rev. Carey Mavor, an Arizona Methodist, pleaded guilty to 1 count of continuous
sexual abuse and 2 counts of lewd acts with a child under 14.
Rev. Wilputte Alanson Sherwood admitted recently to having sex with 1,800 males
since 1984, at least 22 of whom were under 18. He also kept records and
videotapes of the sexual encounters. He was sentenced July 29 by Superior Court
and was on PAID LEAVE until then.
Also from Arizona.
In California, Rev. Richard Allen Henry, 47, was sentenced to 8 years in state
prison for having sex with 4 boys, all brothers, over a 6 year period. The Los
Angeles archdiocese -- get this -- told the court not to imprison a "broken
man" and unsuccessfully, praise Dobbs, offered to pay for treatment if
probation was granted.
Rev. Maurice McInerney, of St. Peter Catholic Church in Colorado, was charged
with sexually abusing an incest survivor who had trusted him to counsel her.
McInerney has been relieved of his duties but IS STILL RECEIVING HIS SALARY.
This one is great. Rev. Mike Williams, 47, also of Colorado, was charged with
SPANKING a man during a counseling session. He was acquitted of similar charges
In Illinois, Rev. David Stalzer was REINSTATED to his parish despite a civil
lawsuit accusing him of sexual misconduct with a minor.
FIVE priests from Belleville, Illinois were removed from the ministry
(exception, not the rule) due to allegations, investigations etc. of sexual
Rev. Kevin Sullivan, of Decatur, Illinois, is being sued. Why? Because he
impregnated Susan Hertel and then encouraged her to have an abortion.
In Indiana, Rev. Raymond Weber is being sued. He allegedly used LSD and alcohol
to seduce a teenage boy.
Also in Indiana, home of great moral leader Dan Quayle (sorry, couldn't
resist), deacon A.V. Ballenger was convicted of fondling a 7-year-old girl in
Sunday school class and sentenced to 8 years in prison. Naturally, his
congregation expressed shocked disbelief, and probably (I say this without any
evidence whatsoever) assumed that the girl was influenced by Satan to Deceive
as Jezebels are Destined to Do unto Men of God.
It goes on and on. See next message for more!!!!

The question: Why does God permit his messengers on Earth to commit such
The answer: Take it, Shelby!
In Iowa, the pastor of the Wesleyan Church is accused of placing an ad under
the name "Diamond Dreams" and agreeing to sex for $150 with an undercover
officer while DRESSED IN DRAG. Rev. Jennfrey Dean McKelvey quit his job after
In Kentucky, Rev. Earl Bierman attempted to seduce two boys by telling them all
about other parishioners' confessions of sexual aberrations (according to
Catholic doctrine, this is one of the worst things a priest can do). He pleaded
guilty to sexual abuse of 6 boys and was sentenced to 20 years.
Rev. Ronald D. Provost of Barre, Massachusetts was convicted for taking over
100 nude photos of boys. Naturally, he refused to apologize to the victims'
families, and the mother of one boy said that the diocese has "expressed no
concern at all."
C. Eric Lincoln, a Methodist minister, is charged with assault, attempted rape
and battery of a woman at Duke University, where Lincoln is a professor
Donald J. Heydens, a priest in Grand Rapids, Michigan, admitted to molesting 5
girls. The girls claimed that Heydens submitted them to repeated assaults over
a period of one year.
Rev. Wilson Smart molested or had sexual contact with 31 boys since 1950. His
Helena, Montana diocese has encouraged parishoners not to sue but instead
accept church counseling (which is probably where they were abused in the first
A priest, 2 Millville, NJ men and the father of a female victim have filed a
suit against 2 priests. The priests are accused of operating a sex ring of
children. Several dioceses and Catholic organizations are accused of a massive
coverup of the abuse. This is not proven, but I personally find it highly
In lovely New Mexico, Rev. David Holley gets up to 275 years in prison for
molesting 8 boys.
A third priest, Rev. Edward Pipala, was removed from a Hudson Valley, NY
pastorate for accusations of sex abuse. He has ADMITTED to turning the parish
boys' club into a sex club he called "The Hole," at which he provided beer to
30-50 minors and engaged in anal and o˙ral sex and masturbation, all under an
oath of secrecy (and threat of excommunication, I'll bet).
Martin Louis, a priest of the Cleveland, Ohio diocese, was sentenced to 25
years in prison. A woman testified that he molested her when she was 10
following her first communion. He repeatedly raped her, threatening her with
hell and telling her that this was what all priests do (Possibly, but not
Had enough yet? These individual examples are selected from a list of over 100
cases of "black collar crimes." I will be happy to mail a copy of this list to
anyone who is interested. All cases are referenced to the newspapers in which
they first appeared.
