The Free Press explains what happened based upon the police dispatcher's report:
A 49-year-old man said he'd just blasted a man with a revolver and a shotgun because the man said he didn't believe in God. The dispatcher said the alleged 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 alleged 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.
On the way to the police station, the suspect told police "he did not want to deal with anyone that did not believe in God," according to the report. ... "How long would it take you to believe in God?" the suspect said he asked the victim. "Not until I hear Gabriel blow his horn," the victim allegedly replied, while tipping his hat.
That's when the suspect shot him. "I did it because he is evil; he was not a believer," the suspect told police.
Not until he got to the police station did it finally dawn on this "morally straight" Eagle Scout that perhaps God doesn't exist. It was too late, though, for the man he murdered. Then again, the man he murdered was just an atheist and according to the Boy Scouts of America, atheists aren't as good in terms of being citizens or moral human beings as are theists. So perhaps it doesn't matter if atheists are murdered, just so long as there are more theists around than atheists?
