“Don’t be telling people that”
Pedophile priest-in-training Joel A. Wright, a 23-year-old student at a Roman Catholic seminary, placed an ad on Craiglist allegedly seeking an infant girl to adopt and engage in sex with.
He was arrested at San Diego airport on Friday with the intention to engage in a sexual act with a minor and attempting to travel ‘in interstate and foreign commerce’ for the purpose of engaging in illegal sexual conduct.
Wright had arranged to ‘buy’ a three-year-old child via an advert he posted on Craigslist.
In an email, Wright allegedly said: ‘I want to adopt/ own a baby girl (under the age of three) and I want to have intercourse with her after I own her (but don’t be telling people that)‘.
Wright booked a flight from Ohio to San Diego to meet a friend of the tour guide, after which he planned to travel across the border to Mexico to meet female infants.
When asked via email if he had sexual experience with infants, the complaint states Wright wrote, “I have not gone all the way before but I have made it very close in the past so I do have experience.“
In January Wright wrote again, allegedly adding, “virgin babies are the best,” according to the complaint.
The complaint says, after describing in graphic detail what he might do to a baby sexually, Wright wrote, “It is so much more fun when it’s a bit of a struggle.“
Wright was a student at Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio.

CHARLESTON, SC—Expressing frustration that he had yet to receive any divine counsel on the matter, former Senator Rick Santorum told reporters Friday that he was still waiting for the go-ahead from God to suspend his presidential campaign. “My relationship with God drives every decision in my life, so here I am, still going through the motions eight months into this presidential run, looking for any green light from Him that I can end this thing,” said Santorum, explaining that he truly believed with all his heart that the Lord Almighty would have provided His blessing to pack it in once his national polling numbers dipped below 1 percent. “Seriously, this has gone on long enough. I really should have received His word, or at least some divine sign by now. I’ll just give God until the South Carolina primary and then I’m going to have to do some serious reevaluating.” At press time, God confirmed that He figured Santorum had already dropped out of the presidential race several months ago.

Pakistani police have arrested the imam of a mosque for inciting violence after a 15-year old boy who was told by the cleric that he was a blasphemer went home and cut off his own hand.
Shabbir Ahmed (no picture available) was delivering a sermon at a village in the east of Punjab province when he asked the gathering if anyone did not love the Prophet Mohammad.
Mishearing the question, the 15-year old boy raised his hand. Ahmed quickly singled him out and called him a “blasphemer” in front of the congregation, Nosher Ali, the head of the local police station, told Reuters on Sunday.
After returning home, the boy cut his hand off, an act welcomed by the boy’s father who told police he was proud of his son and did not want the cleric arrested.
Police filed anti-terrorism charges against Ahmed and arrested him on Saturday, police chief Ali said.
“Such illiterate imams of mosques should not be allowed to deliver speeches. His arrest is under the National Action Plan that hate speeches inciting violence are no longer allowed in this country,” Ali said.
Blasphemy is a highly controversial issue in Pakistan, and angry mobs have killed many people accused of insulting Islam in the majority Muslim country.
Jesus says, “Kill ’em all!” This must be some of that “Christian love and compassion” I keep hearing so much about.

Murderers, drunkards and crack heads, oh my!
A “burden on his heart” prompted Amish minister Samuel Borntreger to confess this week to the 2006 murder of his wife, 26-year-old Anna Yoder Borntreger, a Kentucky sheriff says.
Borntreger, a 39-year-old cabinet maker living in Summer Shade, a small community about 50 miles southeast of Bowling Green, told police the crime occurred when he and his wife were living in rural Missouri.
“He told us that he had fallen out of love with her…[and] put antifreeze in some type of liquid that he gave her to drink,” Barren County Sheriff Kent Keen told The Huffington Post.
Borntreger also said, according to a probable cause statement, that he gave his wife battery acid “up her rectum” on at least two occasions. Just as it says in the Bible, in Saint Mark’s epistle to the Philodendrons.
“This is very rare for me,” Keen said. “In my 23 years in my business … we’ve had people admit to a lot of things, but to initiate it from the beginning — to call us and say, ‘Hey, I need to tell you something’ — this is a first for me.”
According to Keen, Borntreger made his startling confession Sunday morning after he contacted the sheriff’s office and requested a deputy.
“He wouldn’t tell them the reason on the phone,” Keen said. “But when deputies arrived, he said that he had been ordained as a minister in his church and this burden had fallen upon his heart and he could not preach to the congregation without confessing to it.”
After interviewing Borntreger, Kentucky police contacted law enforcement in Harrison County, Missouri. Authorities there have since charged him with first-degree murder.

BETHPAGE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New York priest whose sister was beheaded by her son in 2014 was arrested Wednesday on drug possession charges after he was caught with crack cocaine, police said.
Rev. Robert Lubrano, 63, of Farmingdale, pleaded not guilty to charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance after being arrested at a motel in Bethpage, Long Island, early Wednesday morning.
According to police, Lubrano was seen exchanging money with Michael Oyola, 32, of the Bronx, in the parking lot of the Bethpage Motel on Hempstead Turnpike shortly after midnight on January 6.
Police said Lubrano then entered the motel, where he was arrested without incident. During the arrest, police said they recovered a small, yellowish rock-like substance, which is believed to be crack cocaine. A silver metal pipe containing what police believe to be crack cocaine residue was also recovered, police said.
“I have been smoking crack cocaine ever since my sister was murdered,” Lubrano told police, according to court papers.
Lubrano’s sister, Patricia Ward, was killed in October 2014 by her son, who had a history of psychiatric problems. The 66-year-old professor at Farmingdale State College was decapitated and her lifeless body dragged into the street by her son in front of their home before he walked in front of an oncoming train
“Ms. Ward did meet a very violent end to her life at that time,” Nassau County Police Det. Richard Lebrun said. “I’m sure it was a very horrible circumstance, but people cope in different ways.”
Lubrano was released without bail after his arraignment on Wednesday. A woman who answered the door at Lubrano’s home in Farmingdale on Wednesday afternoon said he had no comment. A spokesman for the Diocese of Rockville Centre said Lubrano has been on leave for five years.
Oyola was pulled over by police after failing to signal when turning out of the parking lot in his vehicle, police said. Upon searching Oyola, police said they found a brown, hand-rolled cigar and a bag of what is believed to be marijuana.
Oyola was arrested and charged with criminal possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of marijuana, police said.

And kidnapping Obama’s dog wasn’t even the craziest part. Scott claims that he is Jesus Christ, son of John Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe and that he is going to run for president. Oddly enough, if he does run for president he won’t be the craziest tone running. What a country.
The reason we decided to post this is simple; we ask you to judge whether the delusions of your rabbi (or imam or priest or pastor or prophet) are any less crazy than those of this man.
Who knows, in three months he may have a loyal congregation of believers who blindly accept everything he says and yet another stupid religion will be born.
A North Dakota man was arrested after Washington, D.C., police investigated him on a tip that he traveled to the nation’s capital to abduct Bo, one of the Obamas’ two dogs, authorities said.
Scott Stockert was set to appear in D.C. Superior Court on Friday on firearms charges for Wednesday’s incident at a Hampton Inn near the Washington Convention Center.
An officer responding to a tip from the Secret Service tracked down Stockert at the downtown D.C. hotel. He admitted that he had a shotgun and a rifle in his pickup truck, both unloaded, along with ammunition for the weapons, according to a police report.
It’s illegal to possess unregistered firearms in D.C.
The report said police also found a machete and a billy club.
When he was arrested, the police report said, Stockert claimed that his parents were John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe and that he came to the capital to announce his campaign for president and advocate for a $99 per month healthcare plan.
As he was being taken into custody, the apparently mentally disturbed Stockert also told authorities that he was Jesus Christ, court documents said, according to NBC Washington.
Stockert also allegedly said: “You picked the wrong person to mess with. I will fuck your world up.”

A volunteer at Vancouver churches, as well as a child abuse prevention organization, is accused of sexually abusing young girls in northwest Portland.
Christopher Gonzales, 44, of Vancouver, was arrested Sunday.
On Saturday, Washington County deputies responded to a home in the Bonny Slope community to investigate a complaint that Gonzales had inappropriate sexual contact with a girl.
Investigators said he had visited the home in question many times. The reported abuse began in 2008 and continued over the course of several years, deputies said.
The abuse has been confirmed with three different girls as young as 5 years old, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office reported on Monday. By Tuesday, investigators said a fourth victim under the age of 13 had been identified.
According to court documents, Gonzales admitted to investigators that he had intentionally and inappropriately touched three of the girls at various times.
Detectives said Gonzales has served as a youth volunteer at two Vancouver churches for several years. He volunteered at Crossroads Community Church from 2010 to 2014, and the Freedom Community Church from early 2014 until now.
Gonzales passed an extensive background check before being allowed to volunteer at Crossroads Community Church, according to the executive director of operations. Additionally, the church has a longtime policy that requires at least two adults present around any children at church activities.
“We believe we follow the best practice in the way to protect the Crossroads family,” said Daniel Fusco, the lead pastor. “At the same time, we’re just heartbroken. I mean, we’re heartbroken for all the families involved.”
Deputies also learned he volunteered at Called to Rescue USA, a child abuse prevention organization based in Vancouver, since 2012. Dr. Cyndi Romine, the organization’s founder, said his volunteer worked was limited to creating a video.
Due to working in close proximity to children, detectives fear there may be more victims.
Anyone with additional information about this investigation is asked to call the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at 503-846-2500.
