In the news today, shortly after Oklahoma experienced the horror of an Islamist beheading, they are now the proud home of the first Christian beheading:
The local news has more details here.
STILLWATER, Okla. – A 21-year-old Stillwater man has been charged with first-degree murder in connection to the death of an area college student who, according to police, was nearly decapitated....
Crockett’s brother, Jesse, told police Marin is a “heavy drug user” and “religious zealot,” according to the affidavit.
Marin’s brother, Samuel Marin, told police he and Isaiah were playing a card game and the victim was in the room with them.
The report says Samuel stated Isaiah had been watching YouTube videos related to his Christian beliefs.
During the card game, the affidavit claims Isaiah picked up a large black sword and began swinging it.
Christians will no doubt claim that it was the meth and not his religion that motivated the crime, but without religion this guy wouldn't have committed this particular crime, and may not have committed it at all. Meth does make people do crazy things, but crazy is a symptom of the same mind that decides whether to believe cultural fairy tales.
If they try to distance themselves from this guy, they will also have to distance themselves from Alton Nolan, an Oklahoman who beheaded a coworker after converting to Islam.
