Tennessee Church Murderer Deserves Death Penalty if Found Guilty

Jim David Adkisson allegedly went on a shotgun killing rampage at a liberal Tennessee church. If convicted, he should get the death penalty. “Hate crimes” laws are not necessary to bring killers like this to justice.

I just sent this short note to Joey Leslie, editor of the Tennessee homosexual newspaper “Out and About,” concerning the case of Jim David Adkisson, 58, who allegedly went on a shotgun rampage at a Tennessee church, killing two people and leaving several others in critical condition.

Of course, pro-homosexual activists will seek to exploit this case to win passage of a federal “hate crimes” law, but as I told an American Family Association reporter today, surely justice can and will be done in this case — possibly including the death sentence that this (alleged) murderer deserves — without the extra help of special “hate crimes” prosecution. Please pray for the injured victims and the families of all the victims of this senseless act. — Peter LaBarbera

Here’s my note and HERE is the full Out & About story:

Mr. Leslie, I am diametrically opposed to your agenda as a pro-family advocate on the other side of the homosexuality issue, but if this account is true, this murderer [Jim David Adkisson] should get the death penalty. And that can be done without federal Hate Crimes legislation. Best–pl

Church shooter was targeting ‘liberals as well as gays’

[Editor’s note: If you are gay and attend this church, please contact O&AN Editor Joey Leslie at jleslie@outandaboutnewspaper.com or call 615-596-6210.]

The man who shot and killed two people and injured seven others (five of them remain critical) at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church selected the church because of its liberal stance and support of the gay community.

Knoxville Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV said this morning in a press conference, when asked by a reporter, that the shooter was targeting “liberals and gays.”
