Shoot your Parents to "save" a girl.

So Jesus wants you to shoot your parents if they get in the way of converting others. I really wonder what this kids life was like.

COLUMBUS, Georgia -- A Columbus, Ga. teenager is accused of shooting a gun at his parents on Friday evening after they insisted he do his chores instead of looking up a Bible verse for a friend.

A detective testified in Muscogee Juvenile Court on Monday that the 15-year-old felt finding the right Bible verse for his female friend who wanted to be ‘saved’ was more important than completing the list of chores his parents insisted he do on Thursday, the Ledger-Enquirer reported.

The 15-year-old’s anger grew until Friday night when he went to his parent’s nightstand and took out a .9-mm pistol.

When his parents got home from work, police say the teenager fired shots at his parents, shooting his mother through the right wrist where the bullet lodged in her right abdomen, according to the Ledger-Enquirer. His father was hit in the right hip.

The teenager will remain in the Youth Detention Center without bond until a formal hearing it set. He is charged with two counts each of aggravated assault and possessing a firearm while under the age of 18.

His parents had the temerity to think that doing his homework/finishing his chores was more important than equipping some girl to go god-bothering people.

I'm jus waiting for the outpouring of support for this little twit.

I bet this fundie brigade will show more support for this kid than for the people of Boston and those affected by the bombing.

What part of "Honor Thy Father and Mother" did he not understand?

Seriously, I was just saying this earlier on another unrelated thread. Why do so many Christians blatantly disregard the commandments?

How long does it take to look up a bible verse?

"Yes mum, I'll do it almost immediately - I just need to spend two minutes on Google and BibleGateway to help my friend"

Or possibly even

"Okay mum; now I've done all that can I spend two minutes on the computer before I go to bed?"

That's what I was thinking. And besides, most parents don't expect chores to be done *immediately* unless there's a specific reason for it (eg. Set the table now because we're about to have dinner). This suggests that either his parents are controlling to the point of rivalling Erika Shupe, or he was seriously procrastinating.

The article also suggests that the verse in question is one about salvation. Most Christians have got that one memorised: "For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believed in Him should not perish, but have eternal life" John 3:16. See? I'm an atheist and I typed that without looking ;)

If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:26)

Sounds more to me like he farted around so long that his parents got fed up and told him to get moving.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
