Priest who committed suicide for rebirth cremated

"A three-day "miracle" drama in Chhattisgarh's industrial town of Raigarh ended on Monday afternoon after a Hindu priest, who had committed suicide promising to return to life within 72 hours of his death, was cremated.
Hundreds of people had laid siege around the body of 25-year-old Manoj Baghel, who ended his life on Saturday by consuming poison at a temple in Raigarh, about 200 km northeast of state capital, Raipur. Baghel had claimed that he would come back to life.
"The miracle drama is now over as the people, who had surrounded the body of the dead priest to witness the rebirth, handed over the corpse to the police for post-mortem on Monday afternoon," Superintendent of Police in Raigarh, J K Thorate said."

Very, very religious

"The gunman believed to have killed four people at a megachurch and a missionary training school had been thrown out of the school a few years ago and had been sending it hate mail, police said in court papers Monday.
The gunman was identified as Matthew Murray, 24, who was home-schooled in what a friend said was a deeply religious Christian household. Murray's father is a neurologist and a leading multiple-sclerosis researcher.


A neighbor, Cody Askeland, 19, said the brothers were home-schooled, describing the whole family as "very, very religious.""

Sad story of course, but I think anyone can see that the strong religious convictions of his family never did him much good.
There's another thing:
"I was just expecting for the next gunshot to be coming through my car. Miraculously — by the grace of God — it did not," she told ABC's "Good Morning America."
But "by the grace of God" he killed four people. If God exists, then he allowed this to happen. The religious world view is very sick indeed.

Why do Atheists want to take away the hope from people?

As an Atheist, I'm sometimes asked: "Why do you want to take away the hope from people?" But the fact is, you can't take away hope where there is none.

That's a lot of hate. If the guy stopped taking the bible seriously he could probably cut down his hate list by a half..
