It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

Joliet Man Charged With Ripping Out Uncle's Eyeballs

Police say career criminal Exulam I. Holman gouged out his uncle’s eyes while the two men fought over a remote control New Year’s Eve in southwest suburban Joliet Township.

Will County Sheriff’s police were called shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday to a residence in the 1100 block of McKay Street in Joliet Township, where a 62-year-old man reported he’d been attacked.

A deputy was allowed inside and found the victim at the bottom of the basement stairs with his hands stretched out in front of him, saying, “Please help. I cannot see,” reports said.

The victim, whose name was not released, had “blood streaming from both eyeballs, covering his face below his eyes. Both of his eyeballs were swollen, dislocated and were protruding approximately a quarter-inch from the eye sockets,” police said.

The man told police he and his nephew, Holman, 32, had been arguing over the TV’s remote control. Both men live at the McKay Street home.

Holman broke the remote on the ground, pushed his uncle to the kitchen floor and straddled him. Holman is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 280 pounds. His uncle is five inches shorter and weighs 140 pounds less.

The victim told deputies that Holman “inserted his thumbs into his eyes … and attempted to pry the eyeballs out of the sockets.”

Holman then allegedly pushed his uncle down the basement stairs.

Despite being in “excruciating” pain and losing consciousness, he was able to call 911.

A deputy found Holman in a locked bedroom and arrested him on a charge of aggravated domestic battery.

The victim was taken to Silver Cross Hospital and later transferred to the University of Illinois at Chicago Hospital for advanced care.

Sources reported he is now blind in his left eye and will require additional surgery for the limited vision in his right.

On Tuesday, Holman’s bond was set at $1 million.

Police report he has been arrested 25 times since 1999 for aggravated assault, aggravated battery, domestic battery, violating orders of protection, resisting arrest and numerous driving violations after previous convictions on weapons and narcotics charges.

In 1999, then-Joliet Officer Bernard Mooney allegedly beat Holman while breaking up a dice game in Joliet.

Holman received a $100,000 settlement after threatening to file a lawsuit over his broken nose, and Mooney was fired from the department.

The following summer, another officer allegedly found Holman passed out behind the wheel of a car running in the 1300 block of Woodruff Road in Joliet. When Holman woke up and was told he’d be arrested for driving under the influence, he put the car in gear and struck the police officer, causing minor injuries.

About Me

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
