Funny. He SAID he was a Christian. He even plans to use the Bible
for his defense. Imagine that. Frankly, I hope he gets the death
sentence so we make an example out of him for those who feel that
they can [literally] get away with murder and claim superstition
as a defense. Of course, what'll end up happening is that your
and my tax dollars will end up paying for this guy to sit in
prison until he's paroled in two months.
When will Fundamentalists learn that a Bible is not a carte blanche
to do whatever you please? You want to take the country for Jesus?
Hey man, come and get it. Come on and dance with the Devil. Die for
what you believe in. You want to shoot, let's shoot. As long as I
die yanking your eyes out, I'll go to Valhalla. That's all that matters.

Yes, like I said. He was a True Christian. He decided that he could
act as his God's agent here on earth and judge this guy and pass
sentence on him. More True Christianity, just like Ralph Stokes here
in this very echo.

No, I speak evil of poor Christians who are poor human beings, and I
see some of these people as a threat to non-Christians. I just think
your doctrine is -silly-, although great evil comes from interpretation
of that doctrine. You believe what you want to believe, but you WILL
leave me out of it.
If only there were more typical critics out there who would tell you that
we're tired of your bullshit.
JS> You lack understanding of the Bible as

That is an ignorant statement. I lack understanding of YOUR INTERPRETATION
of the Bible. Frankly, I don't want to understand your interpretation.
You be hateful to your heart's content, just leave others out of it.
Even LaVey's Satanic Church has the tenet of "Do what thou wilt, so long
as you harm none." You might learn a few things by taking a cue from them.

When "they" come for the Satanists, will you stand up and holler
that they are being persecuted for their religious beliefs?
