God as a rapist?

Sorry for the provocative title, but that's what I thought of when I saw this video starring a creepy pastor named Jack Schaap.  Schaap was once a pastor at First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana and had a flock of 15,000 people.


In this video, Mr. Schaap polishes a rod in much the way many men masturbate... 

After I watched this video, I showed it to Bill.  We both came to the conclusion that this guy is basically equating God as a rapist.  Listen to the way he speaks.  The man is hysterical, but God is calm and in control as he "hurts" the man... the man who is polishing a shaft.  This was presented at a youth conference in 2010.  

Incidentally, Mr. Schaap is now behind bars because he had sex with a sixteen year old girl whom he was counseling.  He claims the girl was aggressive and apparently thinks his twelve year sentence should be reduced.  He thinks he deserves leniency.  But when it comes to disciplining children, he has no mercy.  Behold...

  

Clearly all that corporal punishment doled out by Schaap's parents didn't do the job.  He's in prison and he thinks he doesn't deserve the punishment he got for sexually abusing a minor.  He thinks she's at fault, even though he's an adult who had power over her as well as a married man...


Here Schaap talks about how Joseph was an old geezer and Mary was an old hag...


A video about Jack Schaap's creepery...  Given what happened, that video about polishing the shaft is even creepier than it might have been.


And a news story about Schaap's sentencing.  It was recommended that he get ten years, but he ended up with twelve.  He also lost his wife, Cindy, to divorce.

It was about a year ago that the world learned of Josh Duggar's sexual indiscretions.  But here we have Jack Schaap... a person Josh Duggar could have eventually become like, having sex with teenagers while preaching to his congregation about sin.  He wrote letters to his victim, a girl who was taught to worship him.  He violated her trust and that of her parents, who had sent her to him for help.  He preached about spanking his children... while he was also spanking his monkey on a pulpit in front of thousands of people who hung on his every word.


"Your job has become your God." Schaap says.  And Schaap says freshmen at his college shouldn't date, but he sure didn't apply that rule to himself.


Where in the hell does he get his nerve?  This man is the epitome of toxic.

 And others knew he was toxic and crazy, but they said and did nothing...


Wow...

I think most religious people mean well.  They want to do the right thing.  Some of them have been raised in church and they believe they have to follow people like Jack Schaap.  It makes me sad for those who don't see how toxic many religious leaders are.  


I have two cousins who were male cheerleaders.  One is a happily married man with three kids.  The other is a gay man.  Both are military veterans and graduates of Virginia Military Institute and neither are "sissies"...  


It's sick how men like him get into power...

The plot thickens...  Turns out Schaap and an associate ripped off a bunch of church members, too.
