If you're guilty of anything, it's time to get nervous.

I despise the predators who won't leave little kids be.

Let's catch 'em, lock 'em up & throw away the keys.

Agents of Behemoth: The Patrons of Greed

"Greed (Latin, avaritia), also known as avarice, cupidity, or covetousness, is, like lust and gluttony, a sin of desire. However, greed (as seen by the Church) is applied to an artificial, rapacious desire and pursuit of material possessions. Thomas Aquinas wrote, "Greed is a sin against God, just as all mortal sins, in as much as man condemns things eternal for the sake of temporal things." In Dante's Purgatory, the penitents are bound and laid face down on the ground for having concentrated excessively on earthly thoughts." - Wikipedia: Seven deadly sins/Greed
"Hoarding of materials or objects, theft and robbery, especially by means of violence, trickery, or manipulation of authority are all actions that may be inspired by greed. Such misdeeds can include simony, where one attempts to purchase or sell sacraments, including Holy Orders and, therefore, positions of authority in the Church hierarchy." - Wikipedia: Seven deadly sins/Greed

"If you're a working or middle class parent struggling to put your kid through college, or if you're a student drowning in debt, you should be pissed off at the greed that spawned the orgy of the dishonesty that led to the college admissions scandal. If you're not, you should be." - Mister Al

"Sexual assault is an act in which a person intentionally sexually touches another person without that person's consent, or coerces or physically forces a person to engage in a sexual act against their will. It is a form of sexual violence which includes rape (forced vaginal, anal or oral penetration or drug facilitated sexual assault), groping, child sexual abuse or the torture of the person in a sexual manner." - Wikipedia: Sexual Assault
"Outside of law, the term rape (sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual penetration carried out against a person without that person's consent) is often used interchangeably with sexual assault. Although closely related, the two terms are technically distinct in most jurisdictions. Sexual assault typically includes rape and other forms of non-consensual sexual activity." - Wikipedia: Sexual Assault/Rape.

Minions of Belial: Untrustworthy & Shameless

"Belial (בְלִיַּעַל bĕli-yaal) is a Hebrew word "used to characterize the wicked or worthless." The etymology of the word is often understood as "lacking worth", from two common words: beli- (בְּלִי "without-") and ya'al ( יָעַל "to be of value").

Some scholars translate it from Hebrew as "worthless" (Beli yo'il), while others translate it as "yokeless" (Beli ol), "may he have no rising" or "never to rise" (Beli ya'al)." - Wikipedia: Belial/Hebrew Bible

""Belial" is applied to ideas, words, and counsel, to calamitous circumstances, and most frequently, to worthless men of the lowest sort, such as general who stir up contention." - Wikipedia: Belial/Hebrew Bible.
