Unrepentant: Parents and Parishioners Beat Teen to Death in Upstate New York Church

In New Hartford NY, members of the World of Life Christian Church (including their parents) beat two teenage brothers, one died as a result. Police continued their investigation amidst locals’ reports that the church, located about 250 miles (@400 kilometres) northwest of New York City, could be a cult. On Wednesday, New Hartford Police Chief Michael Inserra told reporters:

The [church] session turned physical. Both brothers were continually subjected to physical punishment over the course of several hours in hopes that each would confess their prior sins and ask for forgiveness.

The assault took place on Sunday. On Monday, family members took one of the brothers, 19-year-old Lucas Leonard, to hospital and doctors pronounced him dead later in the day. Police said that Lucas’s brother, 17-year-old Christopher, went into hospital later on Monday and remains in serious condition. The teenagers’ parents, Bruce and Deborah Leonard, face charges of first-degree manslaughter. Cops also arrested the victims’ 33-year-old sister, Sarah Ferguson, along with three other church members. All those arrested gave “not guilty” pleas. Bruce and Deborah Leonard are in the Oneida County Jail, as they were unable to pay 100,000 USD (6.14 million Roubles. 636,000 Renminbi. 6.5 million INR. 128,800 CAD. 137,100 AUD. 87,900 Euros. 64,700 UK Pounds) bail.

Paffhausen and the konvertsy want to ally the Church with this sort of goofballs. Make no mistake; “Evangelicals” are anarchic sectarians with no ties to real Christianity. They’re a product of the so-called “Second Great Awakening” of the early 19th century… most have no ties with real Christian groups in the Old World. Indeed, their “theology” bears little resemblance to that of Classical Reformation Protestantism. They practise such Antichristian lunacies as public confession and obligatory tithing (if one doesn’t pony up a set amount of cash, one is cast into the “outer darkness”). Beware former “Evangelicals” (with apologies to the REAL Evangelicals, the “Lutherans”)… especially, loudmouthed half-baked Antiochian Konvertadox such as Thomas Zell and Andrew Stephen Damick. They’re not representative of our real grounded clergy. None of the ungrounded Halfodox are. There are three hallmarks of these gents:

  • Obsessed with abortion and homosexuality
  • Trying to bring ungodly “Evangelical” practises such as obligatory fixed tithing into Christ’s Church
  • Making up new “rules” such as forbidding the use of artificial contraceptives (allowed via oikonomia, a real spokesman such as Archpriest V A Chaplin said so)

Have a care… these jabronies pass themselves off as expert and authoritative Orthodox clergy (none have any advanced study in Orthodox academic faculties (that is, none have the kandidatura or its equivalent), many lack basic seminary formation under real Orthodox auspices (that is, often only a MDiv, and that often is a distorting alien formation under heterodox auspices))… the times are evil, and Satan knows how to put on a pretty face. You forget that at your peril. All clergy who are former “Evangelicals” are “off” to some degree or other. Don’t argue with them, either in-person or online. All-too-often, they’re ignorant, vicious, pig-headed, and mean-spirited (they’re “know-alls”… you can’t have a discussion with such). I wouldn’t want to see you hurt. Leave them be, let God sort it out.



Plotnitsky Toured New LRKB Unit

Today, LNR Chairman of the Government I V Plotnitsky visited the Lugansk all-Republic Clinical Hospital (LRKB), to acquaint himself with the progress of preparations for the launch of the first minimally-invasive/endoscopic surgery clinic in the Republic. Plotnitsky praised the active development of the leading medical centres of the Republic, the introduction of promising innovative treatment techniques and the high quality of the training of their qualified specialists, stating:

The LRKB goes to the cosmic level. Recently, our friends from Moscow confirmed the qualification of our surgeons and conformity of the equipment that we’ve received. Therefore, the Republic can only benefit from this. Now, we can increase the number of operations, and we can offer a higher level of care. That’s great and it’s thanks to the efforts of the Minster of Health, the head physician, and the entire staff. The clinic will soon receive the necessary funding to set up dialysis treatment with artificial kidney apparatus. Today, we took the decision to allocate the money needed by the hospital. In return, we’re getting six people who need dialysis treatment. However, if we compare the money with people’s lives, then, the cost doesn’t matter.

Dr Oleg Volman, the head of the LRKB added:

Today our physician staffing level is at 46 percent, the general medical staff level is at 60 percent, and we have a full complement of nurses. Over the past six months, 48 doctors came back [to work in Republic]. The hospital has highly qualified doctors who can work on this equipment. Of course, we want all our doctors to return and resume their work. After all, today, we’re back to the pre-war level of patients, so, that means that we have a shortage of doctors; therefore, their workload is twice as much as normal. .

LNR Health Minister Larisa Airapetyan shared plans for further development at the LRKB:

On the ground floor at the hospital, we plan to open an emergency casualty ward. We have the equipment on order. Another important point is that we’re going to launch therapy using hemodialysis machines. We’re going to make a distinction between chronic and acute cases. We’d further develop our cardiac surgery. In particular, we’d continue the practise of coronary stenting for the treatment of heart attack patients. We retrained our specialists in Krasnodar recently. At the same time, there are problems constraining development. We’ve had a problem with pacemakers. However, we’ve tackled this, so, within two months, we expect to have imported models on hand. We have to keep up with advances in heart surgery… that would reduce the death rate from heart attacks. Of course, the war saw a slight uptick in these… as a minimum, we want to return to the pre-war figures. We also want to provide in vitro fertilization (IVF) services. Implementation of these plans requires a number of prerequisites. First, we need to learn the procedure of running a medical-genetic laboratory. We’d base it in the perinatal centre, and we’ve taken the first steps in this direction. To head this effort, we’ve transferred our leading gynaecologist Oleg Aliboevicha Valiev. I really want us to have IVF, because I’m an obstetrician myself. We’re going to work on it.
