There's Been Too Much of This Lately...

I referenced another killer-for-Jesus on my Twitter today but I just don't have the stomach to talk about it at length. That being said, here's a link to a thorough discussion of the case over on PZ Myers' blog. The killer, Anthony Powell* had a bunch of foaming-at-the-mouth Youtube videos about atheists and whatnot, but just as in the Florida case it appears that he had serious mental problems anyway. It's not worth my time to take any religious digs at him - he was clearly disturbed and there's little else to discuss. It's just too bad that he chose to take out his murderous frustrations on an innocent young woman with her entire future ahead of her.

*AKA Tony48219 on Youtube. His account has been deleted but many of his videos have beenreposted. I honestly can't advise watching them.

It's a real failure of society that people like this, who present as severely disturbed, are allowed to remain at large and eventually commit atrocities like this.
