On July 8th, Shay Amidon posted a lengthy post on Facebook accompanied with several pictures and a video, alleging that her boyfriend, identified only as “Arne”, had systematically abused and physically assaulted her for over a year. Her post, which she addressed to “The girl after me” currently has well over 28,000 likes and 47,000+ shares. According to her, the boyfriend had charmed her with nice words, gifts and flowers and then gradually evolved into an abusive boyfriend. Attached to the post were several pictures of her seemingly bleeding from wounds inflicted by the boy:
A couple days later, the boy’s mother, Brandy Pasanen, made a post on Facebook too, which received its own fair share of likes and shares. The mother’s post, addressed to “The little girl crying wolf”, told a completely different story from what Shay had posted a couple days earlier. Apparently, Shay had a long history of falsely accusing others of assault for attention. She had even informed them that her own father had abused her, which is how she came to live with them in the first place.
We got into contact with Brandy, who further explained that Shay had a habit of picking fights with people, having picked fights with her, her son’s ex girlfriend and her parents (On Christmas day). She was subsequently arrested by the police, although nothing came off the arrests; She was let off with just a warning. Shay also has a history of self harming by cutting herself with sharp objects and drinking windex (A chemical for cleaning that can be fatal when injected into the human body). Brandy tagged her post “Justice for Arne”, “male domestic violence happens to men too” and “Justice for men”:
She has evidence to back up her claims too. Here are text conversations between Shay and the boy’s father, about her intentions to return to their house to pick up her remaining items. In the texts, she admits to getting into a fight with Melissa (The boy’s ex girlfriend) and her mother, although she claims it was Melissa who started it. She threatens to beat up the boy’s mother in the same way to, taunting that she isn’t afraid of “a couple more charges”. This is totes the action of a helpless victim, I’m sure /sarcasm:
All eye witnesses and people who know the two couple in real life collaborate the mother’s story too. They all describe Shay as a psychotic girl who loves to start needless drama. It seems almost everyone has had an unpleasant experience with her. A few are sympathetic to her, asserting that she is suffering from mental issues (She reportedly spent 3 days in a mental asylum).
Arne’s Boss gives his take:
Friend of her parents speak up:
This isn’t even the first time Shay has pulled a stunt like this; about a years ago, she wrote a similar fan-fiction about being in an abusive relationship:
Meanwhile, shay is currently receiving thousands of sympathies and support on Facebook from white Knights and simply ignorant people who believe her and don’t know any better. Brandy says her son and their family have been receiving tons of hate messages and threats from online users instigated by Shay’s post. I guess this is why they say you shouldn’t put your dick in crazy.
I have a passing interest in the Church of England and its American variation, the Episcopal Church. An old friend is in the church so I get some first hand descriptions of what it is like to be in a dying institution. That’s the only way to describe the Episcopal Church. Attendance declines every year as old members die off and new members never materialize. Go into an Episcopal service and you can’t help but notice that most everyone is a senior. The actuarial tables are the church’s greatest enemy.
Of course, church attendance has always skewed a little older. Young people tend not to be attracted to the faith, even if their parents regularly attend services. As people get older, have families and begin to sink roots, they get more involved in their faith and attend services regularly. That’s the trouble with the mainline Protestant religions. The young are not coming back once they start having families. That means their children are not raised in the faith. As a result, these churches are now in a death spiral.
The story is familiar to anyone who has been paying attention. These churches made the decision to chase the latest social fads in the 70’s and 80’s, hoping to make themselves more appealing to the young. The only thing they did was make themselves less attractive to people interested in being part of a traditional Christian sect. It was not just in the pews, but in the clergy as well. Those feeling the call found that the church in which they were raised was not interested in defending and maintaining the faith.
The result is the clergy slowly radicalized. First came the women and then the feminist women. Soon they invited in the homosexuals and the clergy started looking like the faculty of a liberal arts college. That’s when the pews started to empty out. Why bother going to church, when you can get the same liberal lecture from television? That’s what started the decline in church attendance. Instead of offering a shelter from the storm, they decided to chase an over-served market – radical Progressives.
Talking to my friend, he tells me that there are elements within the Episcopal Church that know what must be done to save the church. The trouble is they are outgunned and out maneuvered by the radicals. That’s the thing. The conservatives make it a priority to serve the church and serve God, while the radicals are always scheming to advance the radical agenda. The conservatives are constantly outmaneuvered because they are not playing the political games. They end up getting marginalized, despite having numbers.
Of course, young people seeking to join the clergy are confronted by a politicized bureaucracy full of homosexuals and social justice warriors, who are mainly interested in advancing their own agenda within the church. Like the old commie radicals of yesteryear, the current radicals use struggle sessions and purity tests to boil off those who would challenge their agenda. Imagine you’re a young priest and you are told you now have to celebrate a special mass for the transgendered.
The General Synod of the Church of England has voted to ‘welcome transgender people’ by considering preparing a church service as a way to “mark a person’s gender transition”.
The official church of the United Kingdom voted four to one in favour amongst the Clergy and more than two to one amongst the Laity (members who are not Clergy) at the four-day Synod, the motion reading:
“That this Synod, recognising the need for transgender people to be welcomed and affirmed in their parish church, call on the House of Bishops to consider whether some nationally commended liturgical materials might be prepared to mark a person’s gender transition.”
Vicar of Lancaster Priory Church, Chris Newlands, posed the motion to the Synod, saying he would speak on behalf of transgender people as the church’s Synod has none.
He said: “We need to be aware of the impact that our actions – be them welcome or rejection – have on the members of the trans community.
“I hope that we can make a powerful statement that we believe trans people are cherished and loved by God, who created them.”
The BBC reports that, “Such a service would not be a second baptism, however, as the Church’s teaching is that humans are made in the image of God – transcending gender – and baptism takes place only once.”
Archbishop of York Dr. John Sentamu said there was a need for vicars “to welcome and affirm, in their parish, transgender people”, adding that the “theology has to be done” by the House of Bishops and “can be done very quickly”.
Notice the feminine language. They want to “welcome and affirm” trannies into their churches. I’d like these guys to point to the passage in the Bible that covers men who like to play dress up or people so mentally unbalanced they believe their sex organs are imaginary. Ministering to the mentally ill has a place in a church, but that’s not what they are saying. They want to make mutilating people a sacrament. Imagine being forced to embrace this sort of madness. It is no wonder the sane clergy are leaving.
Of course, it’s also why the pews are empty. It’s another reminder that Progressives must be treated like rage zombies or highly contagious disease carriers. Once you let one into your organization, it will set about bringing in more of its kind. In this case, it was women in the clergy, then feminists, then homosexuals. They have reached the point where few inside the church care at all about the faith. It’s all about the latest Progressive fads and how they can outrage the remaining members of their congregations.
Julie is a man hating feminazi who regularly writes for the female rapist defending and man hating Guardian U.K newspaper.
in 1999 she wrote a man hating piece attacking men who commit sucide
That young men succeed in suicide more often than girls isn’t really the point. Indeed, the more callous among us would say that it was quite nice for young men finally to find something that they’re better at than girls…
To ask me to feel sympathy with suicides after witnessing this (the death of her father from asbestos-induced cancer) is, I suggest, just as unfeeling and ignorant as my callousness must appear to you – like asking a starving African to sympathise with an anorexic. In a society still beset with the most vicious social deprivation and rampant cruelty to the very young, the very old and the very weak, the voluntary exits of a few hundred able-bodied young men each year are best dealt with as private tragedies rather than a public concern. Let them go.
