  • Really? You don't say?

    Kind of like how the religious "ex-gay reform schools" for teenagers are regarded as snake oil-level quackery by every professional medical institution in the First World?

    Or kind of how these institutions, both religious and non, have perpetuated a cycle of violence and sexual abuse against teenagers who society have deemed as "deliquient" for over half a century?
  • Even Ric Romero reported on this YEARS ago.
  • This kind of shiat is incredibly farked up. It screws the kids up for the rest of their lives.

    Instead of bringing them closer to God, they are driven away.

    But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
  • OH COME ON, SUBBY! We farking earned the Florida tag for this one, and you snub us?
  • I find that a lot of people who are drawn to places like this seem to be the ones who think they can absolve their own "evil" (gay, pedo, etc.) by beating it out of children. They feel that by "saving" the children, they save somehow save themselves. The problem is their attempt to help invariably cause more harm that often propagates to future generations.

    You see this a lot in Catholicism, but its a human failing and confined religious organizations. Religion is just the justifying excuse.

  • Formerly known as discipline.
  • The danger is that the programs are run in such a way that the children are forced to participate in dangerous, life-threatening activities without proper care and supervision.

    So many are mocking him for having to shave his head or wear an orange jumpsuit, but they seem to have missed the following paragraph:

    So when Samson vomited, they threw him a rag. When his urine turned red, they said that was normal. By Day 3, the 15-year-old was on the verge of death, his dehydrated organs shutting down.

    These reformatories are run by people with no business to be in the teaching business.
  • Jon iz teh kewl: oh noes he had to wear orange. thats liek the WORST part of this story


    For a kid that hadn't gotten to trouble I can see how making them dress like a prisoner could be a big deal.

    Not as big as the rest fo teh garbage, but worth mentioning.

    BTW, loved how th emom learned about the camop from her boyfriend who just got out of prison.

    Religious extremism can be essentially make one extremely selfish. Parents have been known to let their kids suffer painfully and die from lack of medical treatment just to please their deity and get their own brownie points for heaven.
  • The government should figure out a way to bring RICO cases against religious institutions.
  • In George "Macaca" Allen's COnfederate Paradise, aka Virginia, religious day care facilities are EXEMPT from state regulations.

    /Cool huh?
    //The More You Know....
  • Can't the Roman Catholic Church claim that raping children is a religious practice and get off (ha ha) that way?

    Selfishness is the problem; religion is the excuse. People use whatever is available to justify their selfishness. Hell look at CEO compensation. They don't need religion when good old greed and gaming the system work fine enough.

    He obviously found Jesus while he was in prison and was passing o n the good word, along with getting her kids out of the house.
  • How droll! Subby omitted a particular four-letter word from the actual headline.

    Though, to be fair, the title of the page presents an interrogative permutation, and as we all know, headlines that ask questions are almost always answered in the article with a "yes".

    Still, the missing four letter word is in both iterations. Thanks Subby.
  • Simultaneous widespread spontaneous orgasm among Farkers.

    Now that is a Fark wheelhouse headline, Subbs. Drew should give you TF for a year.
