Stone Homosexuals to Death? The Bible Says So...

Just when you thought that things couldn't possibly get any fucking weirder, the news out of Pennsylvania that an elderly man was beaten to death with a sockful of rocks swims to the surface.

According to the SF Gate website, Murray Seidman, a 70-year-old man in a Philadelphia suburb was beaten to death by a young "friend" (somewhat strangely named "John Thomas"...who can make this shit up?) who is now trying to claim that he was following the biblical injunction to stone homosexuals to death.

Must be true if the bible says so. Plus the little fucker with the sockful of rocks even prayed about it. Yep, sure enough, his god told him to go for it...

Perhaps the fact that he was the executor and sole beneficiary of the dead man's estate had just a minor bearing on that answer from god.

Naaa, probably not. As we all know, god works in "mysterious ways" and the fact that the perpetrator stood to gain from his foul deed, thereby having a clear motive, isn't a mystery at all, even though it shows up time and again in "mystery" fiction.

Go figure.
