No, Jesus would put it in the cloud.

Their original idea was to use S&M gay porn but turns out he already had that
 
2019-02-18 04:54:04 PM  
And I'm sure he knew (or already had) exactly where and how to obtain such pictures to plant.  Megachurches are filth.
 
2019-02-18 05:03:34 PM  
So they were OK with this turd being in charge until his behavior went public. WWJD?

Who Would Jesus Dickpunch?

The announcement said the elders had previously determined they were going to remove MacDonald but that they moved quickly after "highly inappropriate recorded comments made by Pastor MacDonald were given to media and reported."

Now that the horse has escaped, stolen matches, burnt down the rest of the barn, and trampled a toddler in full view of a middle school crowd with cell phones, we've been forced to close the barn door.

"This decision was made with heavy hearts and much time spent in earnest prayer, followed by input from various trusted outside advisers," the elders' statement said.

Our lawyers said that if we did this, the bastard would have to pay for the lawsuits himself.

So, would prisoners treat someone who tried to set up someone for child porn worse than someone who actually participated in child porn?

Yes they are. Unfortunately, I live a couple blocks from one.

The recordings aired on Mancow Muller's show... Is this the incredibly unfunny DJ who used to do prank call bits? I remember hearing his shiat like 20 years ago. Weird.

That's the problem with putting a grifter in charge.  If you try to get rid of them, they're liable to turn on you, too.

This is kind of like asking which kind of dead is the worst kind of dead.

Once you've crossed a certain line, it just doesn't make much of a difference.

No, firing him was not wrong.

Weirdo.

MegaChurch, he's the maroon one who turns from a pick-up truck into a 10,000 seat stadium. Friendly with Optimus Prime.

They used to feature him on Fox & Friends. That's really all you need to know.

Don't worry, they were praying in the meantime.

If it's the same guy, he's the one who had himself waterboarded and quickly changed his tune about it. So, he put his money where his mouth was at least once and learned something in the process.

Did you miss the part where subby said he was a pastor Captain Obvious?

Pretty sure everyone in prison says that someone else put it there, so no.

The same people that can't understand why what he did was wrong would, without an instant's hesitation or doubt or the slightest hint of comprehending their utter hypocrisy, claim to be morally superior to every one of us.

Think about that for a second.

Well, if he'd got as far as executing this plan, the sonofabiatch would have had to actually go and get some child porn. So... at bare minimum he'd be treated like the child-porn connoisseur he aspired to be.
 
2019-02-19 12:00:45 AM  
I'm more concerned that Mancow might still have some kind of actual radio show or audience.

Nobody, NOBODY lies like a Jesus-humper and I mean nobody.

"Earnest prayer" that's so farking rich.

Sadly just one.

If they taxed these freeloading megachurches, the US could probably feed every homeless person in the US.

The Church really started to lose its power once people started to learn to read.
Then it was all downhill from there.

when I had free time I listened to kafi in l.a. and  they had a tim conway jr radio show
so their are worst concepts of shows out there.

Don't know, but he is slotted even as we speak for a high-level position in the Trump administration.

It does for the tattoos the other cons put on his scrotum. One of them is definitely larger and more ornate.

No, the Jehovah's Witness cult is.

My wife and I walked to the local city park today. Two male JW "missionaries" were sitting on a bench next to their literature rack.... directly across from the little children's play area. I mentioned my concern to one of the park employees and he said that City Hall had authorized it, based on First Amendment freedom of religion issues. I said I understood... but the the First Amendment also guarantees freedom of assembly, yet governments at many levels have no problem with preventing "assembly" of pedophiles within "X" feet of public places frequented by children. He had to think about that for a while, and we left the issue unresolved.

Tim Conway Jr. is a national treasure as is his horrible show. He always talked about betting at the track with his old man. All the time really. Kind of a degenerate

Yeah, that was the most shocking part of the whole story, that Mancow was still around and that he is mixed up in all of this.

I remember back in 98 or 99 one of my friends had to be kept away from him in a club because he was about to stomp him because he wouldn't stop hitting on his fiancé.
 
2019-02-19 12:43:11 AM  
Not sure which is harder to believe...
That Mancow still has a show, or that he was baptized.
Easy to believe that mega church pastors are scum.

That's a good question. On one hand, it's only being used as blackmail material, so it's not that he's using it for sexual gratification (note: he's probably using it for sexual gratification). On the other hand, I'd wager there's a lot of inmates who have poor impulse control, and the kind of impulses most people get when hearing child porn are not pleasant ones.

Either way, it would appear we're gonna get a chance to find out.

Sounds as bad as having your local "Priest" you have to call "Dad".

This dumbshiat article had to go seven single-sentence paragraphs before it even got to the real topic.

I can't see why people go to church at all  I don't care if they want to believe in whatever, but what is the reason for church. It's not as though people can't read and need it to be spelled out for them. They go and give a guy money for reading to them? I don't get it.

Old people who are close to death who have been programmed from birth to believe that to go against the church is to go against god, and terrible agonizing torture will ensue for all eternity if they do not give the churches money.
