anna waldherr’s ‘restraint.’

*******

Could not get this ‘Reblogged,’ even after going to Firefox. Doing it by main force, with the following words, shared also on Facebook.

I find this, – particularly referring to the graphic in Anna’s post, – Absolutely Inhuman. In India, they treat the ‘Real’ criminals with TLC (Tender Loving Care),

The man in white is one ‘Dara Singh,’ killer of Pastor Staines AND his family.

and Badly beat up those whom We would call The Innocent.

Above, beaten By the police, Thank You.

Abroad, I have not seen photographs of Carlos, the Drug lord and Mass killer, being treated this way.

My Blogging friend Anna, who is a Lawyer, keeps raising these issues.

These can be stopped Only if a Million voices rise against these.Simpler would be for Religious leaders, like the Pope, the Cardinals, Bishops, the Dalai Lama to speak up. …The Jesuit authorities in India spoke up for Fr. Stan; …for their Own.

Does it not make Your heart ache to see this, as it does mine?

*******

We did not start with the ‘boys.’

*******

And now that they are adults, at least in body, it seems to be too late.

Take Indian ‘Lynching‘ culture. Or lynchings anywhere. It is Never a One-to-One business. They just don’t have the Courage. Because what they were taught, in their families, or the ‘church,’ has been just Crap. It did not make them ‘Men.’

[ The Men among us would understand, and would not take Offence. ]

Take a Look at this:

Damp Firecrackers

From my Tweets:

Swami Yesudas @SwamiYesudas

Archbishop Wilton starts with a bang, and fizzles out like a Damp cracker. …But he did at least that. More than can be said of #EdwardPeters, canon lawyer, #bishops in general, or the #pope

@Pontifex himself.

The Adultery of Priests!

*******

Maundy (Holy) Thursday connotes So many things. The Institution of the Holy Eucharist, as well as that of the Priesthood. …Here’s a thought:
Not Speaking out (enough) is Adultery!
I hold @Pontifex_es, Most #Bishops and Practically All Priests Guilty in this.

On Rape culture of India

*******

My Own Country; and it pains me to call it that. But Needs Must.

  • Sadly, Girls (for it is Mostly Girls) – getting Raped, even Gang-raped,
  • Even Brutalised in the process, – as in inserting Heated Iron Rods into their Private parts,
  • – Even getting Killed after all that, ( Showing these modern Rapists Also have Blood Lust ),
  • And the girls Dying by being Set on Fire…

All this does not Bother Too many people.

As in pointing out Where We Have to Change, In all this I blame Ourselves, The Citizens, First. Lewd Pictures, Posters, Advertisements, Songs and Movies, are Accepted by Us; We do not Protest against them… Not at Home, Nor in Our Conversations and Writings. Not Enough. Let Not The Crusaders get hot over this.

It falls upon Religious Leaders to Inculcate Right Values; and tell me the last time You found them doing that; Powerfully, Incessantly, as Christ would have done. The Precise Reason I Keep Castigating Our Dear, Good Pope.

As things Stand, where We expect Sense, Decency and Direction in the ‘leaders’ of the Civil world, We find a Lot of Blah, Empty Words, which I find a Mockery.

Some Ten days ago, a Young Woman was Gang-Raped, Set on Fire and Killed. https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics-and-nation/all-4-accused-in-hyderabad-gang-rape-murder-shot-dead/articleshow/72393178.cms

As the link shows, All four Accused were Apprehended, and after a Furore from the Public, killed by the the police in what they called an ‘Encounter,’ in India coming to mean ‘Allowing’ Accused to Run, and then Shoot and Kill them. Here is what I had written about that:

1. Have No sympathy for the Accused. Suggest they should have been burnt.

2. But Sentence Should have come from #courts. There are Too many Loopholes in the #encounter.

3. Physically, to say All Four were killed is Brainlessness. At 3 o’clock at night, All Four are Shot, no one in the Arms or the Shoulders, but Mortal wounds, …and None of them had Surrendered?

4. #police had #KILLED at orders of #politicos, pure and simple.

5. #encounter Further proves Absolute Uselessness of Indian #courts, who just examine papers, and are NOT delivering #justice in any way.

6. #police totally happy to carry out orders of #politicalmasters.

7. End Result: NO Morals.

Accused Needed MOST severe punishment. But #police story HUMBUG. And police are #KILLERS.

Many Spoke up Against this ‘encounter.’

The Chief judge of India bleated that ‘Instant’ justice is Revenge. …I have Issues on his use of the word ‘instant.’ And this is what I wrote:

1. Chief JUDGE of India, the #cji, ( let’s STOP calling these fellows ‘justice,’ ) said Instance justice is Revenge.

Going on a Side note, he is merely playing with Words. What We want is SPEEDY JUSTICE. When they cannot provide that, let the #judiciary resign and Sell Pakoras.

[ On Pakoras, the prime minister of India, I think, had said at one time that it is Impossible to provide jobs for Everyone, – which is Very True, of course, but the statement carried a Levity about it, going on further to say that people can sell Pakoras, a kind of Indian Street food, mostly made of Gram flour over Onions, fried. ]

pakoras

Politicians, generally the Most Blase of the lot, have been speaking up; again generally ‘merely’ criticising the ‘ruling’ party.

One Akhilesh Yadav was quite vociferous. On him:

2. #akhilesh is raising his own Drama. It was in ‘his’ time that Two Minor Girls were Burnt and Hung on a tree at Badauni UP, in May 2014, pic attached. …And it was ‘his’ father who had said: #BoysWillBeBoys.

minors-gangraped-n-killed-in-up-0514

And concluding, the #police are Really working Hard to Prove themselves the Dogs to the Pigs of Animal Farm.

3. #police [ Small case as a mark of Disrespect ], who have been called ‘gorement’ – my own spelling for that, – Gundas, are proving that name Right. #police are Proving they are the #Dogs of the #AnimalFarm. …All this on #Unnao.

Let US get Cracking now; Incessantly trying to Inculcate Values.

My latest Tweet to You know who.

*******

@Pontifex_es This post has: ‘Satanists goad Christian right groups with slogans like, “I fucked God and turned him gay.’

1. C’tians being ‘Right’ wing itself is Not Christian.

2. There are TOO many of the ‘Right,’ and All they believe in is HATE.

3. your IT fellows, well paid, of course. WHAT are they doing? Just means they don’t hv instructions to look up such stories.

4. THUNDER, again and again, thro your words, that in Christianity, one human is NOT superior to another.

To my DEAREST pope, once again.

There, @Pontifex_es! LAY ppl, and NON Christians are saying these things, and you, despite having an accredited Twitter handle and a TEAM, I am Sure, to help you in tweeting, are Quiet as a Mouse. Shame.
 
 
The Catholic Church IS Racist. Where are Non white popes? By keeping Silence on Racist issues, or mewing like a Cat on them, is Compliance.
 
Add to that the Huge Caste-ism in India.

One More Salvo on the Vatican!

From my latest tweets: [ Edited for Emphasis. ]

Swami Yesudas @SwamiYesudas

@Pontifex_es:

Just noticed a video in You Tube: ‘The Revolution has entered the church.’

WHAT Revolution? Is somebody from Africa going to be the next pope? Or from China, or any such?

Has there been a Diktat against ‘Caste-ism,’ SO prevalent in India, particularly in the South?

There is a rather famous story of the Barber who became Busy shaving Cats because he had no other business.

Let the #Vatican address the Serious issues.

Not because I say it.

But because Matthew 25 does.

HE is Hungry yet; and is going around Homeless and Naked.

It is NOT enough, to Open a few more Soup kitchens.

#Paul and #Peter and #John THUNDERED through their writings.

‘It is not right to Neglect the preaching of God’s word in order to handle finances.’ Acts 6:2.

Speak about Mexican #Children held in #Cages. About #Freedom being destroyed.

SPEAK ON PARTICULAR INSTANCES.

“How dare you steal my childhood with your empty words! We are in the beginning of a mass extinction & all you talk about are fairy tales of endless economic growth&false promises. How dare you!” Watch 16 yr Greta Thunberg at the UN climate action summit
My Response:
2. Whereas, YOUTH, not yet out of their teens, like #GretaThurnberg, are Roaring away.
3. Did #Christ use ‘“piccoli passi” – baby steps,’ my dear francis @Pontifex_es, or did Peter or Paul? …Did Isaiah, or ANY of the Prophets?
[ By taking ‘Baby Steps,’ and using words that would not hurt anybody, -UNlike mine, – We may be Protecting our Necks, to say the least. Is this What Christ wanted? ]
4. ‘How Dare you say, you have done Enough?’ …from Greta’s speech.

Vatican’s tweet and my Responses:

#PopeFrancis says the Holy Spirit gives Christians courage and “the art of discernment” when facing hardship. #GeneralAudience http://ow.ly/hmwB50weBly
 
My Responses:
 
pope francis, @Pontifex_es, Fat, Well fed people like you, who have NO idea of Starvation, Torture or the Effects of Injustice, should learn to Refrain from such Glib statements.
 
When I had asked you, pope francis, @Pontifex_es, repeatedly, to speak out against Injustice, etc, I had hoped for Censure on the Culprits.
 
you have proved, pope francis, @Pontifex_es, by this Glib statement, that Cartoons like these are Based on Real Happenings in the church.
Shame on you, Pontifex, Inc
