God told Florida man to baptise boy in a filthy swimming pool

God told Florida man to baptise boy in a filthy swimming pool July 30, 2016

Henry L Love, inset, is in police custody following the forced baptism of an 11-year-old boy.
Love, according to this report, was arrested and charged with child abuse for allegedly attacking the boy because he said God wanted him to.
Love, 51, told investigators that “he was awoken from his sleep by God” and told to baptise the boy, who was staying with him.
He reportedly ordered the boy to strip down to his underwear before dragging him to a swimming pool belonging to his neighbor, which was described by investigators as:

Filthy with algae and bugs.

Love then dunked the boy’s head in the pool several times against his will, while telling him that he was being baptised.
The boy’s mother, who had left the boy in Love’s care earlier that day, took him to a hospital that night where he was treated for eye and ear infections.
Following his arrest, Love was booked into Volusia County jail, where he was held without bail.

    Ah, those voices in the head yet again. And most religiots will see nothing strange or wrong with this whatsoever. After all, it seems to be the only way their god has ever been capable of communicating with them. Maybe he/she/it should just try opening a Gmail account or buying an iPhone. Wouldn’t that be so much easier?

    Investigators need to bring God in for questioning as an accessory to the crime.

    Amazing that that their God with billions of galaxies to rule believe that God is concerned with such trivia.

  • I offe a five hundred dollar donation to the charity of choice to the Christian who can demonstrate this man did not hear their God’s voice. Logical as well as physical demonstrations allowed.
    No saying ‘you can’t prove a negative’ for two reasons. First, the statement ‘you can’t prove a negative’ is itself a negative. Second, logical proofs (i.e. ‘There are no married bachelors’) allowed.
