 Detroit man killed for his atheism

A 49-year-old Detroit man has admitted he killed a man with a revolver and a shotgun because the man said he didn't believe in God.

After the murder, the man called police. The dispatcher said the shooter told him he'd just shot "the devil himself" and was still armed and standing over the body of the 62-year-old victim in case he moved. "I want to make sure he's gone," the shooter told the dispatcher.

The dispatcher asked the suspect how many times he shot the victim.

"Hopefully enough," was the suspect's chilling reply, according to the dispatcher.

The suspect, an Eagle Scout, said the victim had told him there was nothing he could say that would convince the 62-year-old to believe in God: "I did it because he is evil; he was not a believer," he told police.

At the police station, the suspect commented that he believed there is a God. Then, looking at the floor, he seemed to have second thoughts: "Maybe there's not," he said.

Try as I might, I find it difficult to imagine the reverse. When have we ever read of an atheist murdering a believer over religion? Despite the Christian PR about how they are so persecuted in this country, it just doesn't happen.
