Also, the verse in the Old Testament that the killer mentioned is Leviticus 18:22. It says to stone someone to death for "lying with man as one lies with woman." Because the two didn't have sex, there was no Biblical mandate to stone anybody.

Another thing -- Jesus said, after a group of people attempted to stone an adulteress in accordance with OT law -- "let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Unless someone is without sin, they can't stone anybody.

What the man in the news story did was not Biblical, it was just plain murder.

This loser is using Christianity as a scapegoat and, I'm willing to bet, many other loons do the same in an attempt to get off on an insanity plea. I'd be willing to bet that he received no such "revelation".

Please don't use this incident to characterize Christianity. Doing so makes you also take on the appearance of a loon.

The mentally illness of the young man is evident by the fact that he prayed to an invisible person who lives in the sky surrounded by ladies with wings and harps, and claimed to have received instruction from this invisible person.

It's a damned shame that so many parents pass this sort of confused, mentally deranged behavior onto their children. This is a tragedy that could have been avoided.
It's one thing to not believe in God; I respect your decision. But why do you feel it's necessary to mock others and provide such a disrespectful description? That was totally unnecessary. Most atheists/agnostics that I know say that they don't need religion to be an upstanding person. Sounds like you could take a few lessons from them.

That's a little condescending. Do you feel the seame way about all religions/belief systems?

For those who truly are interested, hyper religiousity is a possible sign of mania according to the DSM IV.

If someone says that they hear voices in their head telling them to hurt people, its a sign of mental illness.

IMO, the more fanatic/fundamental Christians or people of any religion become, the more delusional and distant they become from reality.

Taking your DSM IV diagnosis to many of the characters of the Old Testament such as Moses, Abraham, Joshua, Noah, etc..........we have a hit!

Today many celebrate these hyper religious fanatics ( DSM IVs) in the OT as if they were heroes. No wonder so many religious people today go over the edge.

Moses, Joshua, King David, etc.........did hear voices that told them such.

In fact, Pres. Bush said God told him to invade Iraq!

Quote:
President George Bush has claimed he was told by God to invade Iraq and attack Osama bin Laden's stronghold of Afghanistan as part of a divine mission to bring peace to the Middle East, security for Israel, and a state for the Palestinians.

What do you make of that?

Silly me, I always thought the proper response to sexual harassment was to report it. I guess stoning someone to death was the right way all along. I guess this kid missed the part where Jesus said "let he who is without sin cast the first stone?"
