The Devil Made Him Do It

This story is about a man who tried to choke a minister to death - thinking that the kindly old man was actually the devil.

Maybe the old man is the devil.

If one follows a fundamentalist Christian religion, it is logical to think that Satan could be hiding among us. This is what many denominations teach every Sunday. So, before you judge this man, calling him insane or possessed himself, take the time to determine if the church elder could have been a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Otherwise, it may be time to re-evaluate your beliefs so that you don't teach unstable people to go off the deep end in the name of God.

You reap what you sow.

This is such a Law and Order storyline. In fact, I think it IS a couple of L&O storylines.

Bring back Jill Hennessy! From the dead, even!
Update: The minister is dead.

It's several L & O storylines. :-)

It's also the logical result of a literal interpretation of the Bible. The Bible says that there are witches and demons and they must be killed and cast out. "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live."

This story is heartbreaking - I can't imagine being a member of this church and associating the altar as a place of reverence, and now to know what happened there...
