13-Year-Old Boy Killed by Deeply Held Religious Beliefs of His Parents

01 hurt teddy bear child abuse


A friend sent me this as a “cut n’ paste”. I did fact-checking and I’m sorry to say that this story is true in all particulars (see this and this and this).



The parents of 13-year-old Alex Radita are on trial for murder in the death of their son. Members of the Romanian Pentecostal Church in Calgary AB, the parents had deeply held religious beliefs against seeking medical treatment for their son. Alex had Type 1 diabetes and other illnesses. His parents stopped his treatments. They declared that if he could find a way to survive without insulin and dietary regulation, he’d live… if not, they’d know that his death was God’s will. By the time of his death, Alex weighed less than 40 pounds. After his death, his family and members of the Pentecostal assembly prayed over him for some hours, expecting that God would raise him from the dead. Only after these prayers were over did they call 911 to report his death.

SOME DEEPLY HELD RELIGIOUS BELIEFS CAN BE FATAL, USUALLY TO THE INNOCENT. Remember the hieromonk who killed a young woman in northern Romania a few years ago by trying to exorcise the schizophrenia out of her. Yes, there are limits on religious freedoms, and well there should be, since we see occasions when the deeply held religious beliefs of some groups turn out to result in homicide. It does matter if it is somewhat rare for this to happen in North America, even once is too often. Alex Radita was a human sacrifice to his parents’ deeply held religious beliefs. He should be alive now and looking forward to his 14th birthday. It would be useful for someone with the time and ability to research how often incidents of this have occurred during the last century. Take into account the forbidding of blood transfusion by certain religious groups (based clearly on Scripture) and the refusal to turn to medical doctors by some others. In addition, we should review the episodes of death due to exorcisms and publish them along with the others.


Be careful with the term “sincerely-held religious beliefs”… you could end by justifying violence and bigotry. This isn’t an isolated case, sadly enough… be especially wary of homeschoolers and those who advocate physical punishment of children… they cloak evil under the guise of “Christianity”. All too many of them are “nice” and “respectable” people, so externalities often cloak a pietistic and smarmy apologia for violence and rightwing indoctrination. Have a care… we live in evil times; some of the worst sorts justify their ill will and crank notions with saccharine religious platitudes. Our children suffer…

Bulgarians Shitcan Perv Priest in Alaska

01 read all about it


The Spiritual Court of the Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox Diocese of the USA, Canada, and Australia delivered its verdict on Saturday, 21 March 2015. It deposed Paisius DeLucia from the Sacred Priesthood, effective immediately. Academy Abuse would like to thank all the victims and witnesses who came forward to help to stop Mr DeLucia’s abuse, despite the shaming and intimidation they experienced in doing so. This, however, isn’t the end. The Bulgarian Diocese must still address the status of St Innocent Academy, including provisions for preventing further abuse. In addition, the Bulgarian Diocese must take responsibility, including financial responsibility, for counselling and therapy needed by Mr DeLucia’s victims. You can expect further updates from Academy Abuse.

23 January 2015. More Intel on the Abuse Situation in Alaska

01 hurt teddy bear child abuse


There’s more on the situation in Alaska where a konvertsy priest abused kids. Click here for more intel on this unfolding story. Cappy and Mel know what they’re about (they know much more than I do on the topic)… keep this link in mind, for they’ll keep this story updated. This is their special field; they do a better job of covering it than I could ever do. FYI… here’s the link for the original website on the abuse… check it periodically, its updated.

I know when to step back and let really-informed people speak… Cappy and Mel have taken tons o’ shit from the goodthinkers for having unearthed clerical abuse. A hat tip and a pass o’ the jug to both of ’em!

17 January 2015. It’s Time to Stop Coddling Abuse in the Church

00 ALL of our Children are Precious... End Abuse NOW


The recent brouhaha in Alaska over a dippy convert priest abusing kids (the Alaska State Police are investigating… it isn’t allegations) is an all-too-common thing amongst us. This didn’t happen in the old Metropolia days… you didn’t find this amongst the po-nashemu folks or Alaska Natives. However, the Anglos have brought in all sorts of pathology… they claim that they can smell out pervs, but I’d say that their gaydar is FUBAR. Seraphim Storheim did get convicted in a court of law… you can’t deny that. You can’t deny that his scumbag mouthpiece, Jeff Gindin, tried to trash the reputations of Storheim’s victims in court. Note how all the konvertsy jumped to Storheim’s defence. I’d still say that the Church should defrock all “clergy” with HOOM or CSB ties… they’re bad seed.

In like manner, the Church shouldn’t be considering questionable people like Brum or Eliel as bishops. Eliel lacked credentialisation until SVS recently granted him a degree under dubious circumstances (furthermore, anointed him head of the class)… don’t forget Eliel dropped out of GTU with Fatso and Brum. All that Eliel has is an MDiv… not enough education for a bishop. Bishops should have a kandidatura from an Orthodox institution (that’s the MP standard). Brum lacks Orthodox formation… that should eliminate him right from the git-go. To top that, he’s the author of the heretical anti-Orthodox “Brum Doctrine”… that the Metropolitan of the OCA is an absolute tinhorn dictator. That is, Brum never converted in his heart-of-hearts, and he remains papist to the bone. Add in that these two were confederates of such questionable sorts as Paffhausen and Podmoshensky, well, that seals the deal. These idiots are TROUBLE waiting to happen.
