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.
