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

False Religion is also death.

Of all the people mentioned in this horrific story, Ella is the only one assured of eternal life.

By the way, kiddies, I reserve the right to use my labels here ironically.

Fundamentalist pastor charged in toddler's pneumonia death - Times Union.

The pastor of a church that shuns modern medicine was charged with a felony Thursday in his toddler granddaughter's death from pneumonia, joining his son and daughter-in-law as defendants in the latest criminal case involving the Christian fundamentalist sect.

The Rev. Rowland Foster, pastor of a Faith Tabernacle Congregation church district in eastern Pennsylvania, was charged with failing to report a suspected case of child abuse. As a pastor, Foster is legally required to report those cases.

Foster's 2-year-old granddaughter, Ella, died in November after her parents refused to seek medical treatment. Authorities say Foster anointed Ella with oil in a failed attempt to heal her.

The ironic [? Pathetic is a better word choice.] thing is these ignorant morons actually were given the power to save little Ella by God Himself. [The One True God, of course.] Us [more or less] normals know this power as the reason, love and free will that only creatures created in His image could possibly possess. We then use this power to try, however feebly, to make our sorry, sinful lot in this life better.

God actually enjoys watching us use His gifts for good. Even if that good is a tiny one like Ella. There is a particularly nasty place in Hell reserved for all who squander His great gifts...and another one for those who preach falsely in His name.

He didn't immediately return a message seeking comment on the charge.

Foster, who turns 72 on Saturday, explained to state police that the church "does not believe in medical care and that he had not been to a doctor in his 70 years," an affidavit said.

The Wrong Reverend is one lucky son of a bitch. For now.

A forensic pathologist told investigators Ella would have had a 95 percent chance of surviving if she had been given a routine course of antibiotics.

At least 27 Faith Tabernacle children since 1971 have died of preventable or treatable illnesses, according to a running tally kept by Children's Healthcare Is a Legal Duty, an advocacy group that opposes faith-based medical neglect. Several church members have been prosecuted for failing to seek medical care for their children.

Like most states, Pennsylvania offers a civil exemption to parents who fail to seek medical treatment for their children on religious grounds. The law does not shield parents from criminal prosecution.

Rowland Foster, who was released Thursday on his own recognizance, is due in court next week for a preliminary hearing.

One more thing. Much of the screeching you here over stories like this comes from the left-fascists, who want people like Ella chopped up and thrown in the trash. Hypocrites much?

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.
