Religious Leader Shoots 4 Year Old Boy To Death Because He Might Be Gay | The New Civil Rights Movement

Quote:
A religious leader in North Carolina shot to death his four-​year old step son because he thought the boy, Jadon Higganbothan, might be gay. The man, Peter Lucas Moses, 27, who also shot to death a 28-​year old woman, may face the death penalty

Moses, whom police stopped short of calling a cult leader, lived in a one-​room home with nine children and three women. The 28-​year old woman, Antoinetta Yvonne McKoy, Moses killed had been beaten and strangled with an extension cord before Moses murdered her. The day he did, she had escaped to a neighbor’s house and begged her to use her cell phone. The neighbor did not call police because she claims she thought the woman might be mentally disturbed. She witnesses Moses dragging her into the house, and still never called police.

So, I have to ask: How does this stuff ever happen? I never understood how people can kill in the name of religion, especially when they preach against that stuff.

Just don't get it at all. I guess this is what happens when people "PRAY" (aka talk to themselves) and are so delusional they hear "God" tell them to do these things.

Extreme religious beliefs are the mental disorder and it's a choice.

If someone I thought was mentally ill came to my door begging me for a phone and was then dragged into the house next door you can bet your ass I'd call the police. What is wrong with people?

Actually, religion DOES NOT teach about non-violence. The old testament is probably the most violent book in history with the new testament a close second.

Some kook shoots a couple people and you claim "this is what happens when people pray"?

No really, people are born religious...it's science.

(that's laced with sarcasm for those scoring at home.)

Maybe he did it because he was black...that is just as likely as him being 'religious'...
