Give me some of that child flesh and a big dog, and thank you, Jesus

Tangipahoa Parish, in south Louisiana, is known for its delicious strawberries, its right-wing politics, and its unwillingness to obey the law. Recently, it was discovered that Tangipahoa strawberry farmers in Amite and Ponchatoula--some of whom are law enforcement officers--routinely kill the federally protected cedar waxwing.

The citizens of Loranger and Amite have also repeatedly violated a court order that forbids them from publicly praying in school. So flagrantly have the schools disobeyed the court order that the ACLU has asked federal judge Ginger Berrigan--who has been more than patient with the Tangipahoa Christians--to put a few of them in jail. One teacher reportedly compelled a student to recite a prayer, and this same teacher attempted to run out a student teacher who objected to the compulsory praying.

Well, it turns out, certainly not to my surprise, that some of the Tangipahoa Christians, while they were on their knees, made the most of the opportunity. The former pastor of Hosanna Church in Ponchatoula has been arrested for having sex with children and animals. A church member and a sheriff's deputy have also been arrested, and more arrests are on the way. Children, dogs, and cats were all victims of the abuse.

Law enforcement officers killing protected species, teachers violating federal court orders and stomping on children's Constititional rights, authority figures--including a pastor--raping children and domestic pets. It's easy to understand why these people think they need to pray a lot, but it doesn't seem to be doing a hell of a lot of good.

My grandparents used to live here. They must have escaped just in time!

Ho-leeeeee God. Honestly, just when you think it can't get any worse, it does. So which is it, that this sort of insanity is being reported with more frequency or that this sort of insanity is more prevalent? If the latter, what conclusion can we reach? This has to end.

Another great title, btw.

It's being reported more, I'm sure. And what you read is just the tip of the iceberg.
