Ah yes, hatred of the gays. Finally, something that Jews, Christians, and Muslims can all come together on.

This guy wreaks of someone who ultimately commits mass murder. I also found the article quite confusing. He references the Torah and has traveled to Israel while also threatening ‘jihad,’ which is an Arabic word referenced repeatedly in the Quran, the Islamic analog to the Bible. He also threatened to slit his wife’s throat. Mark my words, this guy is the next Omar Mateen.

If he threatened gays that must mean he threatened nearly everyone in Eureka Springs.

Looks like we have a future Republican primary chaaallengeeer! Loves guns and hates gays. If he's 100% against abortion. We have a winner.

Another example of an angry idiot using the deplorable material spattered all over one of the abrahamic holy texts to justify his hate.

When will the leaders of faith community finally admit that their books contain some pretty awful hate speech and remove those parts so idiots like this guy won't convince themselves they have divine authority to kill innocent people? Just because you, devout and faithful follower of the true word, choose to skip over the crazy parts doesn't mean the psycho next door will as well. It's frankly irresponsible for the leaders of these faiths to claim that passages supporting the murder of homosexuals are "the word of god, we can't take them out...but let's just not preach about them."

Free "thinker", why worry about removing anything that you believe to be mythical?

Did you not read my post? Because these texts instruct people to kill others for all kinds of asinine reasons. But as a lovely bonus, it's also the divine duty of all the religious wingnuts to convince others that this holy book is the divine word of god and he commands all to obey it. It's irresponsible to distribute these kinds of messages to the masses when a reasonable person could conclude that people will do harm based on the contents. The bible has been amended so many times to fit people's interpretations. Why not take out the parts that obviously don't make sense anymore in an attempt to curb so much violence perpetrated because "god told me to."
