Planned Parenthood Killer Believes He Can Do What He Wants, Even Murder, As Jesus Already Saved Him

The New York Times has unearthed much more from the checkered past of Robert L. Dear, Jr., the man who killed and maimed seemingly indiscriminately at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado last Friday.

Ms. Micheau [one of his ex-wives] described Mr. Dear as a serial philanderer and a problem gambler, a man who kicked her, beat her head against the floor and fathered two children with other women while they were together. He found excuses for his transgressions, she said, in his idiosyncratic views on Christian eschatology and the nature of salvation.

The suspect appears to believe that, on account of being Christian, he holds a ticket to heaven, and therefore, has carte blanche for his violent actions.

But this morning, Mount Horeb High School’s Sexuality and Gender Alliance stood with 200 supporters at the school’s flagpole and read aloud from the book.

New Study Shows People Vastly Overestimate the Percent of Non-Religious People in Their Countries

What percentage of people in your country have no religious affiliation?

In the United States, it’s approximately 16%.

And yet, when people were asked what they thought the percentage was for a new survey by Ipsos Mori, they guessed an astonishingly high 40%.

A huge overestimate. And it wasn’t just the U.S. either. In country after country, citizens assumed the percentage of religiously unaffiliated people in their nation was much higher than it actually was.
