“God Made Me Kill The Gay,” Says Murder Suspect

26-year old Terry Mangum better get a good lawyer. Or maybe it would be easier for him to just plead good old fashioned insanity.

The Houston man admits to killing 46-year old Kenneth Cummings, a gay man: “I did it. Bottom line is I stabbed him the head with a knife.” Why would Magnum do such a horrible thing? God told him to, of course.

In a jailhouse interview, Mangum claims God sent him on a divine mission to “carry out a code of retribution” and eliminate Cumming’s “sexual perversion”. Talk about perverse. So, does Magnum feel any remorse? Hell no: “I believe with all my heart that I was doing the right thing. I planned on sending him to hell.”

Excuse us while we vomit.

Former gay evangelist Mel White describes Mangum’s defense as “outrageous,” saying:

You’ve got to indict everybody from [Pope] Benedict XVI on down. The church and the Christian right have set up an environment that gays are a threat to the community, and they say this over and over.

And because some people take [anti-gay religion] seriously, you have murders like this. This guy is quoting from the rhetoric of the pope and Pat Robertson and the Southern Baptists.

Fuck Pat Robertson. If Mangum’s to be believed, someone needs to arrest God! Now, if only we could get a cop car to heaven!

[Note: Does it strike anyone else as queer that the murderer’s last name’s Mangum, while poor Kenneth’s surname also invokes thoughts of semen?]

    I wonder how he’ll cope with a butt full of cum in prison.

    If I’m not mistaken, Texas doesn’t accept insanity as an affirmative defense to murder. Of course, they would probably make an exception for homo-killers.

    Hmm! Now I’m confussed!

    Was it “That shall not be Gay!” or was it “Thou shall not commit murder!”?

    I did like the prison cum comment MatthewScott, because you know a sweet, little thang that him is going to get a ridin’…daily! HeeHee!

    What really is sad about this whole affair is two things.

    The first is that a man was murdered.

    The second is that he probably did it because he is gay himself and that was his way of unleashing all the religious right bullshit he has had crammed down his throat!

    I hope no one disagrees with me when I say that there is still a great deal of work we all need to do to make it a better place for people do be comfortable with who God made them to be.

    They need to realize that they love cock way before that first “lights out” in prision!
