O They Will Know We Are Christians…

…by our indictments on embezzling and child porn charges.

On Thursday, a federal grand jury indicted [Matthew James] Beise, 36, of Delano, on five counts of mail fraud. He is accused of embezzling more than $240,000 from the church where he served as treasurer for eight years.

The indictment says Beise spent the money on personal credit card payments, jewelry, season tickets to Minnesota Vikings games and expenses related to construction of his $600,000 home.

The grand jury also indicted Beise on counts of possessing, transmitting and receiving child pornography. According the indictment, Beise’s computer contained almost 200 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. He allegedly traded similar images from 2004 to 2006 using his account with America Online.

Today's Christians would make Jesus vomit with rage.

And yes, I'd love to have that on a t-shirt, thank you.

"If Jesus came back and saw what's being done in his name, he would never stop throwing up."

Whatever happened to vows of poverty and shit like that? It amazes me that these fuckers are all getting so rich.

Whatever happened to "INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY"?
Our Lord and Savior urges us not to judge others, lest we be judged.
All of the facts in Beise's case have not been brought forward.
Come on you Christians, have a heart.
