Dawkins mentioned this in his newest book, but the link he gave didn't work, so I googled it:

The Murder of Larry Hooper

Just goes to show how dangerous it is to be an unbeliever in today's America!

But consider the millions of atheist who have not been murdered, harmed, or even harassed.

It is true that many people afflicted with religious beliefs use their affliction to justify hatred, bigotry, and intolerance. These are core components of all 3 of the Abrahamic death cult religions.

But the vast majority of those duped into believing in an Imaginary Bearded Sky Daddy manage to refrain from killing their own roommates.  Foreigners, well that's different, of course we kill foreigners if they are not even Jeebustarians.

The sentence says it all:

As this was a wavered trial Judge Bill rendered his verdict quickly -- guilty of second-degree murder with mental illness.

That guy's whole goddamn family is fucking nuts, judging from the reaction, and needs to be locked away for a very long time.

The motivation for this murder, however, is really no different from what motivated the Lafferty brothers to murder members of their own family and faith.  I get the feeling that Arthur Shelton would have readily murdered a fellow Christian for being of a different sect, or for not being devout enough for his taste.
