Crusading Christian DA resigns after being accused of trading light sentences for sex with defendants

A Christian prosecutor who regularly boasted of waging culture wars against liberals resigned this week amid allegations that he gave women drug dealers lighter sentences in exchange for sexual favors.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Bedford County District Attorney William Higgins stepped down from his position after he was charged by a grand jury of offering female convicts leniency if they met his sexual demands.

Per the Post-Gazette, the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office charged Higgins with “obstructing administration of law or other governmental function, official oppression, recklessly endangering another person, intimidation of witnesses or victims and hindering apprehension or prosecution.”

“District Attorney Higgins traded his power and law enforcement authority for sexual favors and violated his oath to the people of Bedford County — compromising the security of his community and the safety of confidential informants,” state Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement on the grand jury indictment.

As Patheos notes, Higgins in the past has not been shy about being a pro-Christian culture warrior, and has in the past boasted about being attacked by the American Civil Liberties Union.

“I guess I should take solace in the fact that the liberals are mad at me – again,” he said in 2014 regarding the case of a 14-year-old accused of desecrating a statue of Jesus. “If that tends to upset the ‘anti-Christian, ban-school-prayer, war-on-Christmas, oppose-display-of-Ten-Commandments’ crowd, I make no apologies.”

Newt Gingrich tells Collier audience 'secular, atheist philosophy' is threat to Christianity

The secular philosophy of the left in Western society is at least as grave a danger to Christianity as that posed by terrorist groups such as Islamic State group and al-Qaida, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Saturday night in North Naples.

The Republican from Georgia addressed about 300 people at The Ritz-Carlton for the annual Speaker Event dinner of the Ave Maria School of Law.

“The rise of a secular, atheist philosophy” in the West is "an equally or even more dangerous threat” to Christianity than terrorist organizations that will kill Christians if “they don’t submit,” Gingrich said.

He said religious institutions such as the Ave Maria School of Law in North Naples can serve as “centers of resistance“ to those “two horrendous wars underway against Christianity.”

The secular philosophy dominates universities and is embraced by newspaper editors and Hollywood, Gingrich said. It represents “a repudiation of everything we’ve learned about the importance of the spiritual world,” he said. (...)

The oven is fine. The cooktop can only be lit with a match, (new sparkers cost more than it's worth) which is a real first-world problem, but we bought it 2 decades ago when it was an emergency so we just got whatever the store had and really have been underwhelmed with it so it's going to find a happy home somewhere else. The Bosch washer dryer set was bought used for $250 so we can't really complain but we will. I've repaired the washer 2x on simpler stuff but now it won't drain/spin except on a couple of settings, and not at all if the water is warm. So we've been using cold water to wash, which is okay usually but now even that is going. Analysis says this is also at least two bits of computer chips/sensors that would cost hundreds. So it's toast. The dryer stopped heating last year, and never really did heat well. I take it apart for a cleaning once in a while and Sunday while I had it open, stuck a multimeter on it to confirm that the heating element ($300, no longer available) was toast. It was. But while I was cleaning the heating element, I managed to break one of the little coils so now it trips the breaker, killing both it and the washer that plugs into it with a German cord and German voltage too I dunno.

So that's the story of the koolaid.

Cold-War Fascism, and Neo-Moonies: The Bizarre Story Behind the AR-15 Church Ceremony
(...) In a 2016 video posted to Hyung-jin’s YouTube channel, President Donald Trump’s son Eric can be seen speaking at the opening of the Tommy Gun Warehouse in Greeley, PA, a business owned by Kook-jin Moon’s Kahr Firearms Group. Afterwards, Hyung-jin is seen socializing with Eric Trump and assorted militiamen as his wife and church co-leader, Yeon Ah Lee-moon, engages in animated conversation with Eric’s wife, Lara.

Like his father, Rev. Hyung-jin is an ultra-right anti-communist extremist. Clad in camouflage jackets, a bullet crown, and black Carhartt overalls, Hyung-jin nurses a single-minded obsession with the divine power of firearms, martial arts, and the “Rod of Iron.”

In a February sermon, Hyung-jin uses the language of the alt-right in a three-hour rant in which he comes off as a macho, spoiled rich-kid — not unlike Eric Trump or Donald Trump, Jr. Speaking in a rapid, clipped tone, he offers “Bro”-accented fulminations to parishioners about how they’re “little babies” and “little beta-male wimps, beta-girl, beta-women wimps,” “dumb idiots” who have “clearly never been beat up by MMA guys” or “high-level alpha-guys” like him who can “see right through your crap.”

The latest neo-Moonie stunt provides ample reason for looking into the strange history of the Moon sect, which was born in the neo-fascist national security and foreign intelligence circles of Asia at the dawn of the Cold War. (...)

Holy crap: The 'godly' side of Donald Trump

This week I went on a strange trip, a pilgrimage to a place where common words and assumptions were flipped upside down and backward, where my vision blurred and I felt an unseen force trying to make my brain go stupid.

I read "The Faith of Donald J. Trump," just published. Its subtitle: "A Spiritual Biography."

What the hell, you say. But no, it's real, and reasonably hefty, at 375 pages.

Check the flap: The authors are David Brody, a reporter with the Christian Broadcasting Network, and Scott Lamb, a Baptist minister and biographer of Mike Huckabee and the baseball slugger Albert Pujols.

Scan the blurbs, by Sean Hannity and Newt Gingrich. By now your horse-crap siren is a-wailing. (...)

The conservative provocateur who calls himself Sabo took aim at Hollywood days before the Academy Awards.

With a nod to the Oscar-nominated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, conservative street artist Sabo has hijacked three billboards in Hollywood to attack the entertainment industry for allegedly shielding pedophiles.  Reminiscent of the signage in the Martin McDonagh film, which is up for seven Oscars including best picture, with black text on a field of red, three consecutive billboards in Hollywood sprang up Wednesday, each calling out the industry.
