A teenager was brutally gang-raped then had her eyes gouged out by her sister in a brutal exorcism ritual that the rapists claim was ordered by a local pastor.
 
According to Daily Mail, the victim, aged just 16, is now fighting for her life in hospital after the horrific ordeal, which her family said they orchestrated because they believed she was possessed by the devil.
 
After the terrible ordeal, the teenager was pinned down and her elder sister cut both of her eyes out.
 
 
The victim's sister claimed that the religious centre even gave her the sharp knife used in the attack and said that she must personally carry out the brutal act in order to cure her.

SURVEY FINDS LITTLE “FRANCIS EFFECT,” TWO U.S. CATHOLIC CHURCHES

According to Religion Dispatches, one of the first posts I wrote for RD was whether or not there was or would be a discernible "Francis effect," a term used in a variety of ways, but frequently understood to indicate an uptick in attendance and the return of disillusioned Catholics.
 
Some bloggers took me to task for writing that early polling confirmed my suspicion that the doctrinal disconnect between lay Catholics and the hierarchy was so wide that, without significant change, Francis would amount to little more than a new and improved mascot for the church who would make the faithful "feel better about their damaged church."
 
At the time, Francis had only been pope for a year, so it's fair to say that the judge was still out on whether he would reinvigorate and rebuild the Catholic Church.

Rev. Gretta Vosper, Atheist Minister, Fighting United Church's Attempt To Fire Her

According to Huffington Post, An ordained United Church of Canada minister who believes in neither God nor Bible said Wednesday she is prepared to fight an unprecedented attempt to boot her from the pulpit for her beliefs.
 
In an interview at her West Hill church, Rev. Gretta Vosper said congregants support her view that how you live is more important than what you believe in.
 
"I don't believe in...the god called God," Vosper said. "Using the word gets in the way of sharing what I want to share."
 
Vosper, 57, who was ordained in 1993 and joined her east-end church in 1997, said the idea of an interventionist, supernatural being on which so much church doctrine is based belongs to an outdated world view.
