Liz Ramirez, Cassie Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez have been released from prison. They served fourteen years for a crime they did not commit. A crime, in fact, which no one committed. A crime that never happened. But due to the free pass Christianity gets when it talks nonsense, these four women were put away for ‘satanic-related sexual abuse.’
When you think for a moment that it’s better to be a gentle critic of religion, not to make fun, not to speak against it in a cruel way, I want you to think about what you’ve done over the past fourteen years and remember that Liz Ramirez, Cassie Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez didn’t have that opportunity. The men and women who piled on to the ‘satanic-related sexual abuse’ accusation will not suffer one moment of freedom deprived, not one dollar of penalty. The Texas Four are petitioning that they be recognized as innocent, but that probably won’t happen. “Exoneration would allow them to collect money Texas pays to the wrongfully imprisoned.”
I’ve written at great length about Christianity. I compiled news reports. I wrote a book-length resource to help others criticize Christianity using it’s own Bible, it’s own history. I’ve written about the victims of the ‘satanic panic’ who are still in prison. I’ve changed some minds here and there, and I’m glad for it. Here’s a few more words.
It’s not the international child rape ring known as the Roman Catholic Church. It’s not the filth who put strangers away for ‘satanic-related sexual abuse,’ as phony as any Salem witch charge. It’s not these few monsters that are making the problems happen. It’s the millions upon millions of “good Christians” who aren’t bothered to stop them. Moderate Christianity is the smoke-screen allowing the rapists and the filth to move at liberty. And that’s why I have cruel words ever at the ready for every Christian who will hear them. The “good Christians” could clean their own house, and they do not. The “good Christians” could walk away, and they do not. So take away their free pass. Let them be shamed in public and in private, at home and in the workplace, in schools and very much so in their place of worship. Let them be shamed with their own indifference to evil, with their hypocrisy that thickens the blood like snake venom. But don’t rape them, and don’t put them in prison. That’s the Christian way.
