Anger, there`s a huge difference between the humane process we use to kill animals we eat, and stringing one up by the neck and burning it alive for NO reason. And to go one step further to claim it was done because of religion... you might start to see why people are concerned.

stupid ignorant woman should serve the max for animal cruelty.

no matter how smart a dog is (i.e., seeing-eye dog, drug dog, etc.) they still can`t READ! so how would a dog know the difference between her big bible book of fairy tales and a copy of Gone With The Wind?

stupid superstitious old hag. if she did that to one of my dogs, i`d be the one heading off to jail, on an ADW charge.

From looking at posts after my post about mentally ill and religion, it certainly seems that those who are without religion are mentally ill also:

Guys, I know it is hard to accept a mental illness, but I can refer you to therapists that are atheist who can help you with your problems. I know several through the years I have practiced.

When will "religion will be the end of us all" start to ring true to people? Is it more realistic that a perfect being existed before the massive universe? I hope you realize that this is quite statistically not! To create a perfect being is quite crazy, to believe in one even more so!

"But prison time for killing a dog? Sounds a lil` extreme, doncha think? Wouldn`t it be better to levy a painful fine?... especially considering your miserable economic situation?"

Hey I chewed a bible once, it was due to miserable economic situation.

I`ll be the first person to shout "animal cruelty", and that this person should be punished, also for being stupid.

Religion strikes again. Kind of odd to think that she would have been burned alive if she had owned a bible printed in English in the 15th century in London.

Those silly zealots! Now quick, some hyper-sensitive type rush in to claim umbrage...

Well I dont know, maybe because of people like this doing outrageous things in the name of religion. People like this make me angry because they are helping turn people away from religion and making someone think of this lady or someone like her when you think of a believer. You can believe but still be down to earth and not a nut job, thats just all you see on this site. I thought i mad that that clear with a simpler comment but i guess that was too complicated "Jendrian"

I`ll tell you mine. None.

I know for a fact we are born.

Anything else is wishfull thinking or guesswork. Perhaps superstitious beliefs are simply morbid fear paired with denial.

"What I am saying it, being religious does not make you mentally ill, nor does being mentally ill make you religious."

I have to disagree with that statement. There is absolutely zero chance that someone who actually believes (any belief affects actions and decisions on any level) in things that have zero base in reality and zero chances of being proven... are undeniably mentally ill on some level.

As soon as I find out someone believes in any god or deity, etc. I automatically start questioning their judgment and actively think they are inferior and incapable of rational thought.

The thing is - there are mentally unstable people all over the world. Yes, many of them are religious, but not all of them. Schizophrenia can be associated with a prevalence for belief in a higher power. The thing is, you notice it more when it is from a religious person, because they associate everyday life (no matter how irrational) with religion.

The same sort of thing occurs in non-religious also, it just makes for a better read when the person does something insane in the name of a higher power.

I work as a therapist, and I can tell you - behavior like this is not uncommon for the mentally ill.

What I am saying it, being religious does not make you mentally ill, nor does being mentally ill make you religious. It just makes for a more interesting read when the mentally ill are religious.

Insanity and religious are almost the exact same thing.

I would give anything to be away from all religion forever. All I see are all these religious nutjobs with all their rights, but us sane/nonreligious can`t escape them.

It makes me sick.

So she killed the dog because she was afraid it would harm the neighborhood kids. Yea, seeing a dog hanging from a tree, on fire, is not traumatizing to the kids at all. I hope she gets the same treatment. That would be pretty fair. Freaking psycho...
