Woman hangs a dog for chewing bible
JFC!!!

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Authorities have charged a South Carolina woman with felony animal cruelty, saying she hanged her nephew's pit bull from a tree with an electrical cord and burned its body because the dog chewed on her Bible.

Animal control officers said Monday that 65-year-old Miriam Smith told them she killed a female dog named Diamond because it was a "devil dog" and she worried it could harm neighborhood children. Authorities said bond wasn't immediately set for Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County after her weekend arrest.

Officials said she didn't have an attorney yet.

She faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted.

Authorities say the remains of the dog were found under a pile of grass with part of an electrical cord around its neck.

From local news, it reported that the neighbors say that she was a fundamentalist Christian. The neighbors believed that she needs help, but not jail because she is confused from what the Bible said.

lol

What if the neighbors were wrong? lol

I will be astounded if she's actually prosecuted.

Poor dog indeed but, poor woman as well...
However horrible what she did, I don't think it is to blame on her religion. judging from what I read, I think the women just needs medical treatment.

RE: Woman hangs a dog for chewing bible
I'm going to hang my dog for chewing on my hadron collider.

I just wonder how much this has to do with her dedication to god.. If the dog had chewed a recipe book would it have been hanged? probably not. her actions were probably caused by the delusions that religion caused her to develop. Do I think she is mentally Ill for taking drastic action?.. possibly not. If you class her as mentally ill then you must also say that all of the people who start riots and burn down buildings and injure people because funny caricatures of Mohammed were drawn are mentally ill

From 1000 ateists 0 would torture a dog to death for chewing his/her Origin of Species.
From 1000 religios folk 1 would a dog to death for chewing his/her Bible.
And that is a great difference, greter than anyone would think...
I think that somehow the true victim is not the dog, but the women. She was probably not mentally ill, but her mind was darkened by her religion, what can actually be considered as the killer (indirect as it is).

RE: Woman hangs a dog for chewing bible
Religion is the justification , it's a crappy filter you put on reality , and it distorts reality.
If someone takes drugs and drinks shampoo thinking it to be a potion from a fairy it's wrong and drugs are condemned.
If people do harmful things to people or animals in the name of religion it's because they didn't "understand" their religion.
Now there's a double standard.
