Wreck of the Old Humanist Culture

Is humanism a train wreck? According to this sociologist, it is.

While I'm at it, my favorite train wreck song, "Wreck of the Old 97, by Hank Snow.

Australian sociologist?!?!? But according to a certain poster here, Down Under is an atheist nihilist paradise! I guess we don't have to write off the antipodes just yet.

Mr. Veale,

Thank you for that link! Found the video with Richard Burridge to be quite worth watching.

Worth keeping your eye on that site - they usually get a couple of good interviews every month.

Dear Jay Sekulow,
I'm an Eastern Orthodox Christian with a history of Bipolar Disorder and Aspergers Syndrome. I'm on SSDI with Medicare/Medical insurance. I've been attending Alvarado Parkway Institute Outpatient Program located @ 215 West Madison, El Cajon, CA 92020 up until 2 weeks ago....when I was unlawfully detained against my will in a forced "5150" by order of A.P.I.'s Clinical Director, Dr. John Allen. I spent nearly 2 weeks in their Inpatient Hospital located at 7050 Parkway Dr., La Mesa, CA 91942....whereby I was forced to take medications against my will, beaten by staff members and, on occasion, left shackled in solitary confinement well beyond what is legally and morally right....in a "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" kind of scenario....but worse! Dr. John Allen had been my attending Psychiatrist ever since I entered A.P.I.'s Outpatient Program in 2011. Dr. Allen is an atheist that hates Christians!!!

If I tell him that I believe in God and the Supernatural, this is, in his mind, a reason to force hospitalization because he sees Theism as a "delusion". I had decided to attend the Outpatient Program on Friday, January 11 for a little extra therapy because I had been having a rough time and needed to "process" some of the things I had been going through. I am only scheduled for Tuesdays and Wednesdays....but they don't have a problem with anybody showing up on a day they aren't scheduled because, frankly, they are just in it for the money. Everything seemed well and good when I got there. I ate lunch and was waiting around until the Group Therapy sessions began. However, I was told that I was to see Dr. Allen on that day....which is odd, because it was on an unscheduled day and I had already seen him recently. He sees patients once a month. Also, the previous week I was approached by my "Treatment Coordinator" named Ash about volunteering to go Inpatient because Dr. Allen was supposedly concerned about my "mental health". I declined because I'm in a Rock Band that's been working on cutting a Demo so we can play local venues....and I also had some side jobs lined up to earn a little extra cash because the Social Security income I get is barely enough for me to cover my living expenses. Anyway, I was approached by a Mental Health Worker named David about seeing Dr. Allen around 11:30 am....which, again, was really weird because it was in the middle of lunch and Dr. Allen is almost never there before noon. Odder still was the fact that they asked me to wait inside Dr. Allen's office instead of the usual wait outside his office. At that point I knew something was up so I turned on my Digital Voice Recorder...which I had inside my guitar bag/case...because I feared that they were going to force me into the hospital for some crazy reason.

I really don't want to waste your or my time with just words. I want you to hear the six and a half hour audio file which documents the total religious discrimination of A.P.I. in general, and Dr. Allen in particular. I was eventually beaten by cops and dragged into the hospital against my will. But the kicker is that when my belongings were confiscated, they weren't bright enough to turn off my Digital Recorder. So I now possess 6 hours of audio footage that totally demonstrates the bigotry and hatred of Christians in this particular "therapy" program. You will note that I was calm and rational until I was provoked. You will hear all the lies and slander about me even after I had been carted off to the hospital. It is completely unconscionable. But it gets even better. While I was in the hospital, Mental Health Workers fractured my wrist and beat me into submission one night because I was supposedly "acting up". The truth of the matter is that the Staff provoke patients just so they can then punish them with seclusion, forced drugging and physical and mental abuse. There is photographic evidence of the injuries....including X-Rays that were taken while I was in the hospital. And it's even uglier than that.

Gregory said...

Staff members are forbidden to have cell phones out on the unit....yet, almost all of them carry them around. And the night staff, especially, have them out all the time. It's a total hypocrisy and sham to make patients abide by draconian rules and then see hospital workers violating the rules left and right. But it's even worse than that. Certain staff members pay attractive female patients to have sex with them in areas where the camera and spotlight aren't on them during night shifts when everyone else is supposedly asleep. There is so much I could tell you about this but I don't want to turn this into some "essay". I'm just asking for help. I'm poor and needy. And I can't stand to see this injustice go unpunished. Please consider my case. I believe that it's "open and shut" and a total "win-win".
If you are willing to talk to me my number is (619) 277-1779. I look forward to talking with you soon.
Sincerely,
Darin Wayne Williams

This is truly a frightening story. I hope someone intervenes on your behalf.
