Using Christianity to Defend Rape and Sexual Imprisonment

havent-the-slightest

Many politicians use their claimed belief in Christianity to survive scrutiny regarding their sometimes controversial actions and qualifications to hold public office. The most notable are Ted Cruz, Mike Pence, and Mike Huckabee. Although not one of them believes in the teachings of Jesus Christ, and have likely never read the bible, they place their religion ahead of our nation and its people. I was raised Catholic, and I will testify that Christianity is a fallacious cult.

A father and son in Ohio, are planning to use the bible to defend themselves against charges of rape, child endangerment, and kidnapping. A 13-year-old girl was chained by the ankle in their home and repeatedly raped between 2012 and 2015. One of her siblings was also allegedly sexually assaulted.

Timothy and Esten Ciboro, who are representing themselves, explained to the judge that they intend to use God’s holy word to ask questions, questions that we believe are absolutely vital to our case,” according to the Toledo Blade. The girl is Timothy’s stepdaughter. Two buckets were found in the basement. One, containing ammonia, was believed to be her only toilet, and the other used as a stool.

The two disgusting excuses for human beings will be allowed to reference the bible, but not use it when questioning witnesses.

In August, 2015, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz rushed to the aid of Kentucky county clerk, Kim Davis, because she had violated the law by refusing to allow same-sex couples to acquire marriage licenses. She used her Christian faith as justification.

Will Huckabee and Cruz now rush to the aid of Timothy and Esten Ciboro because they will use the bible to defend themselves? It shouldn’t matter to them the seriousness of the crime; Christianity is the only guideline for their efforts.

There is no greater sin than hypocrisy. No man or woman can claim to be Christian if they violate the commandments of Jesus Christ. Far too many American use their fake-Christian beliefs to justify their immoral actions.

America is not the greatest nation in the world, and Christianity is not the only true religion, as its leaders would have you believe. I am disgusted with sanctimonious politicians and religious leaders. All men are created equal, and all religions are equal if you choose to belong to one of these cults.

If these men are justly convicted of their crimes, I am sorry that crucifixion is not an approved form of execution.
