More madness, murder and mayhem from those whom many regard as moral authorities. So much for that.
A Virginia youth pastor remained in jail Saturday after being charged in the Thanksgiving night shooting deaths of his wife, stepdaughter and the stepdaughter’s boyfriend, police said.
Christopher Gattis, 58, was charged with three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of using a firearm in the commission of a felony, Sergeant P.H. Zoffuto of Chesterfield County Police said in a statement issued Friday.
Police said Jeanett Gattis, 58; her daughter Candice Kunze, 30; and Andrew Buthorn, 36, who was Kunze’s boyfriend, were shot to death at the home in Chester that they shared with Gattis shortly before 11:30 p.m. on Thursday.
The incident appeared to be domestic in nature, police said, but they were still investigating.
Gattis was a youth pastor at Grace Lutheran Church in Chester, according to Gattis’ Facebook page. Chester is a suburb of Richmond, Virginia. Perhaps he taught a class in conflict resolution.
“Members of Grace Lutheran Church are deeply saddened by the loss of life last night as a result of three individuals being shot in Chester, and this tragedy included members of Grace Lutheran Church,” the church said in a statement posted on its website.
Gattis was being held in county jail with no bond, police said. He is scheduled to appear in General District Court on Monday.

A Colorado pastor was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly impregnated a 14-year-old girl who had his child.
Romello Leach, 22, of Colorado Springs, Colo., who is a pastor for several churches that meet at a Colorado Springs hotel, faces multiple counts of sexual assault on a child, The Gazette reported.
The unidentified girl said she and the pastor had sex twice, once in Nov. 2016 in Leach’s car and at her home earlier this year, the Denver Channel reported.
The teenager gave birth to the child on Sept. 15 when she was 15 years old. The girl reportedly did not inform anyone she was pregnant until her mother noticed her “larger belly” in May, arrest records stated.
The teenager’s mother took her to the Colorado Springs Pregnancy Center where they notified an employee that Leach was the father, the affidavit stated. The employee informed the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office of the pregnancy and an investigation was launched.
Leach told his ex-wife in a recorded telephone discussion that he had sexual relations with the teenager and admitted to being the father of her baby, arrest records stated.
Leach told his ex-wife “he knows he had made the worst mistake” and “it’s not like he will go around and sleep with everybody’s 13 or 14-year-daughter,” the affidavit stated.
In a different recorded phone call, Leach admitted to an unidentified person of having sexual relations with the girl at least four times and being the baby’s father. Leach “admitted the behavior was wrong and said he was full of lust at the time,” The Gazette reported.
Leach was being held at El Paso County jail without bond. Deputies were investigating if there were any other victims of Leach’s.

Desmond O’Donnell, the priest who killed Christmas?
CHRISTIANS should stop using the word Christmas because it has been hijacked by “Santa and reindeer”, an Irish Catholic priest has urged.
Father Desmond O’Donnell said Christians of all denominations should realise that Christmas and Easter no longer has any sacred meaning.
He told the Belfast Telegraph: “We’ve lost Christmas, just like we lost Easter, and should abandon the word completely. We need to let it go, it’s already been hijacked and we just need to recognise and accept that.
Not to mention that Christians hijacked the holiday from pagans. Also, we’re out of wise men and virgins.
We here at Fuck The Pope will continue to celebrate the birth of Santa Claus.

And you wonder why the Vatican is soft on financial corruption and priestly homosexual molestation and rape.
A bombshell book has claimed Vatican priests had sex with boys while popes had multi-million dollar accounts.
Gianluigi Nuzzi’s ‘Original Sin’ alleges a host of Catholic sins, including gay sex in the Vatican’s youth seminary.
The book also reproduces documents from the Vatican’s scandal-marred bank, showing multi-million-dollar accounts in the names of Popes Paul VI and John Paul II and their private secretaries.
It claims that hidden powers in the Vatican were blocking the reforms of Pope Francis and his predecessor, Benedict XVI.
Nuzzi said his lawyers had hand-delivered a copy of his book to the Vatican’s criminal prosecutor, saying at least one of the Vatican’s seminarians was a minor at the time of the alleged gay sex escapades.
The book also delves into the 1983 disappearance of Emanuela Orlandi, the 15-year-old daughter of a Vatican employee.
It gathers together years of exposes into the gay subculture of the Vatican.
The new claims concern the Vatican’s St. Pius X pre-seminary for middle and high schoolers who are considering a possible vocation to the priesthood.
Nuzzi reproduces a letter and testimony from a gay ex-seminarian who recounted how an adult, now a priest, used to come into his dorm room and have oral sex with his roommate.
The book reproduces a 2014 letter from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to the ex-seminarian, saying it had determined that no sexual abuse of a minor had occurred but that it was referring the case to the Vatican’s office for clergy.
Nuzzi told reporters today that the roommate was indeed younger than 18 when the encounters began. Neither the roommate nor the priest were identified.
The author and fellow journalist Emmanuele Fittipaldi were put on trial in a Vatican court in 2015 after both published books based on leaked documents that exposed greed, mismanagement and corruption at the highest levels of the Catholic Church.
In July 2016, after an eight-month trial, the Vatican’s criminal court declared that it had no jurisdiction to prosecute them. This means it gave them a pass because the Vatican criminal court did not have the jurisdiction to prosecute Vatican crimes. Amazing that they think anyone would believe their bullshit.
The court did, however, convict two other people for conspiring to leak the documents, and absolved a third.
Colorado pastor jailed for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl and ‘inviting her on a field trip to his hotel room’
November 1, 2017
‘This wasn’t a mistake’: A Colorado preacher received his prison sentence after being found guilty of sexually assaulting an underage congregant multiple times.
A judge in an Adams County announced Tuesday that Robert Duane Wyatt, 51, formerly from the Agape Bible Church in Thornton, would serve 13 years behind bars for the crimes that occurred over the course of the past two years.
The child, who was 12 and 13 at the time of the sexual assault, told police Wyatt first began inappropriately touching her when she was 12, and just last year, invited her on ‘a field trip’ which led to a hotel destination, according to The Denver Post.
‘This wasn’t a mistake,’ said senior deputy district attorney, Patrick Freeman during court hearing. ‘He saw he could manipulate the victim and her family.’
The young girl attended church services at the parish located at 8761 Huron St. alongside members of her family at the time.
We’re going to guess that god told him it was okay or that she came on to him.

No, they don’t get better as they age.
A 96-year-old retired priest and one-time senior official of the Archdiocese of New York had a trove of child pornography on his computer and showed it to others at the retirement home for priests where he lived, prosecutors alleged on Tuesday.
Monsignor Harry Byrne (no photo available) faces 37 counts of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, Bronx D.A. Darcel Clark said in a statement. He allegedly had dozens of photos of girls as young as 8 either posing naked or engaged in sex acts with men.
Prosecutors also allege that Byrne viewed the images “in front of many individuals” at the St. John Vianney Center for Retired Priests, where he lives.
“People at the defendant’s residence were subjected to it when they entered his room,” Clark said.
He faces four years in prison if convicted of the top charge against him.
Byrne was the chancellor of the archdiocese from 1968-1970, a position that meant he oversaw the central administrative offices and official documents. A spokesman for the archdiocese said it was cooperating fully with prosecutors.
Byrne’s attorney said the priest was currently being cared for in a medical facility.
“Monsignor Byrne has dedicated 72 years to charity and church with an unsullied history. So, he deserves to entertain himself with kiddie porn, right? He was ordained in 1945.
It is difficult to imagine that at the age of 96+, this stellar member of the priesthood knowingly understood and is responsible for the content of the subject on a computer accessible to numerous people,” his attorney said in a statement.
For abuse victims of Catholic clergy it is not at all hard to imagine. This guy was probably fucking altar boys when he could still get it up.
