Angel Armando Perez in his work clothes

It was close to midnight Sunday when Woodburn resident James Curths saw the 12-year-old boy running down the street toward him. Curths said the child, panting and out of breath, begged for help, telling him a man was chasing him.

Moments later, a man rounded the corner wearing only underwear. He stood a short distance away, trying to wave the boy over as Curths and his sister-in-law prepared to drive the boy to relatives.

“He was staring at us,” said Heather Rodriguez, 28, Curths’ sister-in-law, who was also outside. “Then he stood there with his hands on his hips like, ‘You’re really not going to give him to me?‘”

Rodriguez and Curths, 35, told the man they were calling the police. Only then, they said, did the man jog away.

The man who chased after the boy that night, Woodburn police say, was the Rev. Angel Armando Perez, the parish priest at St. Luke Catholic Church in Woodburn. Early Monday, the boy gave police a detailed account of the alleged sex abuse he said occurred at Perez’s home, leading to Perez’s arrest later Monday…

The Salem boy told authorities that Perez had asked his parents a few days earlier if he could take him on a trip to the mountains. He and his family attended a community church event Sunday night, and the 12-year-old went with Perez that night to the pastor’s house, a grayish-green home less than 200 paces from the church’s front door.

The boy told police Perez gave him a beer and they watched a movie. The boy told investigators that an air mattress was set up on the living room floor for him to sleep on. He said he fell asleep on the mattress, the affidavit said…

He said that when he opened his eyes, he saw Perez next to the air mattress, with one hand on the boy’s genitals and one hand holding a cellphone. The boy discovered his underwear and shorts lowered to his knees, while Perez was dressed in underwear and a T-shirt, the boy told police.

Fortunately, we live in a day and age when the Catholic Church can’t get away with simply moving the pedophile priest to another parish and making the event disappear; and we live in a day and age when the Catholic Church no longer wields the sort of political power that could require accommodation with lousy practices from local politicians and police. Well – most places, nowadays.

    That such horrible perversion should taint the name of Christ even a little is a sin of epic proportions…and those guilty of it will reap a truly terrifying punishment:

    36 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
    37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me…

    42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
    43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
    44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
    45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
    46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
    47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
    48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. (Mar 9:36-48 KJV)

    The pope and others might view this as a metaphor, symbolic of separation from God…

    They couldn’t be more wrong.

    The classic Christian belief is there is a resurrection, where the wicked rise from Hell (Hades) and are imprisoned in a contemptible (abominable) resurrection body that reeks of corruption….and then is cast body and soul into the lake that burns with fire and sulphur….after being bound hand and foot so they cannot move to lessen their pain:

    2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. (Dan 12:2 KJV)

    24 “Then they shall go forth and look On the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm shall not die, And their fire shall not be quenched; And they shall be an abhorrence to all mankind.”

    (Isa 66:24-1 NAS)

    13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
    14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
    15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Rev 20:13-15 KJV)

    These will occur literally and were prefigured by what happened to a Legion of devils. They were imprisoned in unclean swine flesh, and then forced to rush into the Lake and perish….ending up in the Lowest Sheol (Abyss) aka Tartarus:

    30 And Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Legion”; for many demons had entered him.
    31 And they were entreating Him not to command them to depart into the abyss.
    32 Now there was a herd of many swine feeding there on the mountain; and the demons entreated Him to permit them to enter the swine. And He gave them permission.
    33 And the demons came out from the man and entered the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake, and were drowned.
    (Luk 8:30-33 NAS)

      The binding of the hands and feet is figurative….

      13 “Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ (Mat 22:13 NAS)

      The antithesis of the resurrection body of the righteous, which is like Christ’s (1 Cor 15:42-49) having “eternal life” as its animating principle, is the “corpse” or dead body the wicked are raised in, which is at best an animated corpse.

      The wicked soul is trapped within the corpse, which being dead, us unable to move once cast into the lake of fire…that is, unable to move even a finger to lessen their pain…

      That is the meaning of the “figure” “weeping and gnashing of teeth”, intense sorrow and physical pain will immerse these like a lake of fire:
      24 “Then they shall go forth and look On the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm shall not die, And their fire shall not be quenched; And they shall be an abhorrence to all mankind.”

      That these are thus “separated from God” is not found in these symbols, it is found in the lake of fire which has “two meanings”;

      1)Gehenna of fire, a furnace of fire, a fire that is like a lake immersing the wicked.

      2)The second death, the death from which there is no resurrection, where the place before the face of God has been destroyed forever (2 Thess 1:9)so there is no returning from this place.

      14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
      15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Rev 20:14-15 KJV)

      Hence Christ warns is preferable to cut it off, than sin…

      . 8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
      9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.
      10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
      (Mat 18:8-10 KJV)

    Separation from God is also found in the image the people of God go out and see these:

    24 “Then they shall go forth and look On the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm shall not die, And their fire shall not be quenched; And they shall be an abhorrence to all mankind.”

    Also here:

    14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
    15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (Rev 22:14-15 KJV)

    As true of all this “figurative language,” its to be interpreted literally as possible, referring directly to specific entities..and they are not to be subjected to a “generalization error” that obscures each symbol has a specific reference..

  3. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    To sum up, execute pedophiles as quick as possible, preferably before the sun sets…sending them to God for additional judgment.

    That consistently applied, regardless whether someone is an Obama campaign bundler or not, will reduce the problem to as much as possible in this life.

    The assholes in the archdiocese will work on the authorities to have this asshat jesus freak of a subhuman transferred to get treatment. All of TEAD’s quoting from the “bible” proves it takes all kinds of nuts to keep these fucktards in business diddling little boys and girls.

    The head asshat the “Pope” is the richest man on the planet, meanwhile he goes to the poorest nations and is praised by the brainwashed. His ass-holiness gives the poorest nothing, nothing but the hope of an afterlife but in this life don’t use condoms and keep spreading aids, it’s good for you. Killing in the name of—-> GOD. Fucking christians can be the worst at being christian. And let’s not forget about the new crusades of the 21st century to rid the planet of Muslims.

    Hey did any of you card carrying Jesus folks watch the newest crusade program on the tele. Stars earning stripes is a disgusting christian reeducation “REAL” war “mission”, proving just how intolerant and violent this jesus nation has become. Killing in the name of.

  8. Hasidic molest monster guilty

    Guilty of all 59 sex charges * ‘Happy tears’ for accuser * B’klyn Satmars rip verdict

    UNHOLY MONSTER: Hasidic leader Nechemya Weberman (center) sits emotionless in Brooklyn Supreme Court yesterday after he was convicted of sexually molesting a teenager.

    He’s guilty as sin.

    A Hasidic leader so powerful in his Brooklyn community he never dreamed he’d be punished for sexually abusing a young girl was convicted yesterday after his brave young victim dared to testify against him.

    Nechemya Weberman, 54, had forced himself on the child for three years starting when she was just 12.

    He was convicted of all 59 counts and faces 25 years alone on the top count: prolonged sexual contact with a child.

    The victim — now a married 18-year-old — testified she had been afraid to report the abuse because “I thought they would never believe me since he was supposedly a god in Williamsburg.”

    Weberman sat silently, his face expressionless, as the jury foreman repeated “guilty’’ 59 times.

    He was led from the courtroom in Brooklyn Supreme Court with his hands cuffed behind him.

    “We’re all crying with happy tears, each and every one of us,” said the victim’s husband, who escorted her to court every day she testified.

    “She’s been through a lot, but she’s starting to have peace, and she will recover, and I’ll stand by her side to the end.”

    Asked whether he was worried about the consequences of a Weberman acquittal, he said, “When God is witness, no one can lie.”

    The explosive trial shined a light on the insular and cloistered world of the Satmar Hasidic sect.

    The victim said she had first been sent to Weberman for counseling after she failed to dress according to Satmar standards of modesty.

    Witnesses told a riveted courtroom about practices no one would think could go on in New York — like the masked “modesty” squad that was allowed to invade another girl’s home, storm into her room and confiscate her cellphone.

    “We firmly believe that the jury got an unfairly sanitized version of the events. As a result, the truth didn’t come out. The struggle will continue to free this innocent man,” said defense attorney George Farkas, referring to information that was barred from trial.

    The defense will appeal.

    “The deliberations were too short for a case with so many complicated issues that raised doubt. I don’t believe the jury properly considered them,” said co-counsel Michael Farkas, George Farkas’ son.

    One Satmar man fumed, “It wasn’t a fair trial. There wasn’t any evidence,” and stormed out of the courtroom after the verdict.

    Outside of court, prosecutors said Weberman had many other victims who have come forward but who are afraid to go public.

    “There’s at least one other victim within the statute of limitations,” said Assistant District Attorney Kevin O’Donnell, who explained the difficulty of prosecuting abuse in the Hasidic community.

    “It’s definitely more difficult because everybody who comes forward is afraid to be seen even walking into our office.”

    At a press conference, District Attorney Charles Hynes said, “The victim in this case showed great courage.”

    “I would hope that the Satmar community would do the same as the Lubavitcher community,” he said, referring to the decree the rival Lubavitch sect issued ordering anybody aware of sexual abuse to report it immediately.

    Hynes also said his office would seek to have Weberman sentenced on the top count and may ask Judge John Ingram to order the sentences to run consecutively instead of concurrently.

    The case was extremely important for Hynes’ office, which has faced criticism for dragging its feet on prosecutions against sex abusers in the politically powerful Hasidic community.

    “The veil of secrecy has been lifted. The wall that has stood in these Brooklyn communities has been broken through,” Hynes said.

    Abe Rubinstein, an Orthodox Jew who attended much of the trial, praised the verdict.

    “Good day for the victims. Bad day for the molesters,” said Rubinstein, who says his son had also been abused.

    The trial made news even before it started.

    In June, four ultra-Orthodox men were busted for offering the victim $500,000 to drop the case.

    Two others ripped down the kosher certification at her then-boyfriend’s, now husband’s, restaurant.

    During the trial, four Satmar men were arrested for allegedly snapping photos of the victim on the stand and tweeting them out to Weberman supporters.

    The courageous victim had taken center stage for four grueling days of testimony and cross-examination.

    She recounted how she was sent to Weberman because she had talked to a neighborhood boy, because “my tights weren’t thick enough,” and because she asked teachers questions like, “How do you know God exists?”

    She described the sexual abuse, including forced oral sex and orders to copy the movements in pornographic movies Weberman played on his computer.

    The courtroom was packed with supporters of the victim, including women in traditional Orthodox dress who cried during the graphic testimony.
