Oh. My. God. Subby, I thought you were kidding. That's the actual verse. The whole farking bible, and that's the one you picked. You, Mr Pedo Lawyer Guy, are a horrible person. Thou doth verily suck. And I have a Bible verse just for you:

Jesus wept.

That is repulsive. If there was a line to punch him in the head I would be in that line.

I have a better one:

Luke 17:2 - It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble.

Fark you, Pedo-Lawyer.  Fark you long, hard and absolutely sideways.  I hope the judge comes down against you and your clients like a ton of bricks.

While we're quoting:


Alas, alas for you,
Lawyers and Pharisees
Hypocrites that you be
Searching for souls and fools to forsake them
You travel the land you scour the sea
After you've got your converts you make them
Twice as fit for hell!
As you are yourselves!

Alas, alas, for you
Lawyers and Pharisees
Hypocrites that you are
Sure that the kingdom of Heaven awaits you
You will not venture half so far
Other men that might enter the gates you
Keep from passing through!
Drag them down with you!
You snakes, you viper's brood
You cannot escape being Devil's food!
I send you prophets, and I send you preachers
Sages in rages and ages of teachers
Nothing can mar your mood

Alas, alas for you
Lawyers and Pharisees
Hypocrites to a man
Sons of the dogs who murdered the prophets
Finishing off what your fathers began
You don't have time to scorn or to scoff
It's getting very late!
Vengeance doesn't wait!
You snakes, you viper's brood
You cannot escape being Devil's food!
I send you prophets, and I send you preachers
Sages in rages and ages of teachers
Nothing can mar your mood

Blind guides, blind fools
The blood you've spilt
On you will fall!
This nation, this generation
Shall bear the guilt of it all!

Alas, alas alas for you!
Blind fools!!

That verse doesn't mean kids should be allowed to go to church so they can be fondled. I can't even imagine how the lawyer intends to use that verse to argue in his client's favor.

He didn't specifically use it that way, though I'm double-god-damned if I can figure out why he used it at all.

I've used it here on Fark in jest, but that's in jest. Not in serious.

Yeah, TFA says he continued from that to talking about how the Catholic Church has been more concerned about protecting itself and priests than victims, but hey - in AUS, they're doing a fine job of it, and pay no attention to anyone who says otherwise.  Because they're so biased against priests, you know, having been raped by priests and all.

"But, in the meantime what they ought to be doing is telling these priests who took a vow of chastity to keep their hands off the altar boys! Keep your hands to yourself, Father! You know? When Jesus said "Suffer the little children come unto me", that's not what he was talking about!"

Seconded. I don't see how this is going to help him at all with any judge who isn't lobotomized.

The priest was quoted saying "Suffer little children to cum unto me."

The original intent of the verse (dont molest kids) was somehow lost in translation.

You know, I half think the lawyer decided to be deliberately provocative in order to torpedo his own defense...
 
2013-12-13 03:38:53 AM  
Worth a shot, I guess.
 
2013-12-13 03:44:36 AM  
The original intent was from Christ to chastise his self righteous apostles when they decided, on their own, that Jesus was too important to listen to mere children.  Jesus set them in their place immediately also stating that if any harm but one hair on their heads, they will be sorry.
 
2013-12-13 03:45:31 AM  
Christ, what an asshole.
 
2013-12-13 03:45:51 AM  
Probably not legally possible, but it would be awesome if the judge ruled Catholic churches are for adults only (like a strip bar) and children are not allowed to enter, even with a guardian.
 
2013-12-13 03:54:31 AM  
My money is on the lawyer actually trying to lose the case.

This isn't a civil or criminal trial. It's a public hearing.

He didn't use it in a court case. He is appearing at a Royal Commission investigating institutional responses to child abuse in Australia, and it appears that he used it in a slightly cackhanded attempt to say "this is how the church is supposed to view children, but it didn't". His speech went on to apologise profusely for the church's actions.

There was a young lady of Devon
Who was raped in the garden by seven
High Anglican priests

Still, one would hope that they would have a greater capacity for tact than that.  That was just the absolute worst Bible verse they could have opened with, given what the hearing is about.  How could the guy read over his opening statements beforehand and NOT go "Hey, you know, this really doesn't sound good at all, considering that the reason we're having these hearings is that a bunch of priests were cumming to little children?"

I pray that someday we find a cure for religion. I know the buildings and art are great, but most of the rest of it can fark right off. People actually take these books as historical and real. Sad. And, the rest of us have to deal with the fallout.

Being as he is a lawyer for a church it is quite possible that he didn't have a whole lot of control over what was in his remarks. Church organizations are not known for their ability to take outside advice because after all, they ARE protectors and keepers of the holy and eternal truth.

Hideous mother farking people.

Well, at least it made the event news worthy. And, perhaps that will create some clamor that demands some kind (any kind) of action against these revolting criminals.

Good one for Frankie the Pope to take on. He doesn't seem to mind pissing off bankers. Which could prove dangerous. Why not do something about these sick farks?

Child sexual abuse leaves scars that absolutely last a life time. Not a matter to be ignored or taken lightly.

Just remember everyone somebody suggested Sainism could be banned because community standards or some such and well now again, so sad I've often thought the neighborhood churches should be closed beside they break sound ordinances ring bells Sunday mornings. They can all move away from people bad influence and such. All those neighborhood churches could become pubs and well if you're there in your hood ya ain't killing anyone with a DUI for sure if you can safely stumble home..

I don't know. On the one hand this is taking a line out of context to manufacture outrage and that is best left to the "you didn't build that" sort of idiots.

On the other hand, the fool giving the speech was practically begging for that with his trainwreck of an opening line. And it could hardly have happened to a more deserving client.

the sooner the better. depending on how ignorant, uneducated and close-minded people are they continue to indoctrinate their offspring into the mess with wedding vows promising to do so. considering how well the power of organized religion and politics plays together i think it would take a incredible and destructive planet event for mankind to rid itself of this magical thinking. the wealthy and the powerful are far too invested in holding the reins over people coin, crotch and conscious to return to a healthy state of eugenics where the best and brightest would populate the planet.

In no other country had the church developed a single national protocol or process for responding to victims of child sexual abuse

This sentence should be a warning for anyone who wants to be a catholic.

Well, "outrage" might be manufactured - but it's just normal human reaction to this choice of words to say "WTF???"
It just makes one shake one's head and mutter incoherently.

Hey, Pedopriest--I've got a verse for you.


3.bp.blogspot.com
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
