Fundamentalist Broadcaster Outs Obama

Bryan Fischer, a broadcaster for the fundamentalist Christian American Family Association, says President Barack Obama is a “closeted Muslim”, and the proof is Obama’s wedding ring.

“ We’ve looked at the photographic evidence, we’ve seen some research on this. There’s a academic expert at Duke University that’s verified that, that is the inscription on President Obama’s ring. And it’s not just a wedding ring, he had photographs of him wearing that ring since the earlier 1980s… And the inscription, according to this academic expert at Duke — and one other prestigious university verified it — yes, the inscription on his ring says that there is no god but Allah. And the reason you haven’t seen any of that in the mainstream media is that — I mean, the mainstream media has not even discussed that — probably because it’s too fucking lame even for Fox News to touch it.”

We at GraceLessLand have learned that Fischer is only partially correct – and things are much worse than he knows:

Friar Apologizes For Having Said Anything

A Catholic friar has apologized for saying some pretty creepy stuff that makes him at least sound as if he sympathizes with pedophiles, if not actually makes one suspect he may be one.

Rev. Benedict Groeschel, in comments in the National Catholic Register, seems to be saying that pedophiles are the victims of the children. Groeschel is a founder of the Trinity Retreat House where he works with priests accused of child sexual abuse. In his original statements Groeschel says “in a lot of cases” it is actually the child who takes advantage of the adult, who may be in an emotionally weakened state.

Is pedophilia sick? Yes. Is it a disease? Probably. Can it be treated? Maybe. Does that mean we should be understanding of it? Not at all.

Gay Porn Priest McVeigh Leaves Parish

Father Martin McVeigh accidentally showed gay porn to parents of children preparing for their First Holy Communion.

McVeigh's presentation took place at a grade school in Pomeroy, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland in March. Church officials are actively investigating the case.
