    • Actually they probably were. It’s frequent that the most hardened criminals and gang members are also deeply religious. It come from believing they are warriors doing God’s work. Like Jesus said he didn’t come to bring peace, but a sword. And that “only god can judge me” mantra these losers retell themselves. In modern times it’s apparent that the more religious you are, the more you are hiding. If you’re a good person, you don’t need the bible or any religious text to tell you what you already know.

      • Well said! Religious freaks believe in fairy tales, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. Then they put these little “prayer hands” all over their postings. Total nut cases!
