Welcome to the Freethought Forum
The lofty high Renaissance and marked mannerism. The heavy and ornate Baroque era, followed by the gentle Rococo. Harsh neo-classicism, rich romanticism, lush naturalism, stern realism, blurred impressionism. Heady surrealism, blockish cubism, postwar Dada, pointy-cornered art deco and cookie cutter Bauhaus. Let us skip the dreariness of the past half century and arrive finally at FF Style.

Synodalist bishop made penitents strip during confessions
Synodalist Bishop made penitents strip during confessions

Quote:
The former bishop of Créteil has admitted to having asked young men in the 1990s to strip for every sin they confessed to. If he was sanctioned in 2021, believers are now outraged by the silence that surrounded this decision.

Last October, the Trombinoscope des évêques, co-authored by the author of these lines, was published, revealing the particular confessions of Michel Santier, Bishop Emeritus of Créteil (2007-2021), in the 1990s. In mid-October, the weekly Christian Family revealed the canonical sanctions taken against this clergyman in October 2021, in the greatest secrecy, causing a new shock wave with heavy repercussions in the Church in France.

True crime and the media that loves it.
Mar 23, 2023 - 4:31 PM - by specious_reasons
For the last few months, I dipped my toe into a true crime podcast: Rabia and Ellyn Solve the Case.

Ellyn Marsh is an entertainer and true crime obsessive, and Rabia Chaudry is an attorney who advocated for Adnan Syed (she's the person who convinced Serial's Sarah Koenig to do a story on the case).

As a person who has an unhealthy fascination with crap, I 100% understand the appeal of the "true crime." It's the worst (and best) of humanity with the benefit of being real life.

I just dropped the podcast. The trigger for this was the two part series on Jan Broberg.

Jan Broberg is someone who was the victim of a serial pedophile who involved himself with her family. Their families because fast friends when they became neighbors. He took both families on nice vacations and helped the Brobergs out financially. He seduced Jan's mother and father, mostly so he'd have the power of shame over them. He eventually brainwashes middle school age Jan into believing that aliens had commanded her to have a baby with him. The story is pretty wild in terrifying ways.

Rabia and Ellyn had a part one of this podcast. They discussed the case based on public documentation. One thing they couldn't get their heads around was how the Brobergs continued to associate with this man. They were extremely critical of the parents, accusing them of putting their reputation ahead of the safety of their children.

Well, Jan Broberg is a public figure - telling her story to raise exposure of sexual predation, so she volunteered to come on the show for a part 2. According to her, their criticisms about her parents were mostly wrong. The Brobergs weren't putting their reputation ahead of the safety of her daughter. A lot of the wilder events happened because Jan was brainwashed and just old enough to circumvent her parent's authority with... [Read More]
