Can being a non-Christian get you marked for murder in Texas? Uncovered by Raw Story:
Can being an atheist in America get you killed? If police in the small Texas town of Petrolia are to be believed, the answer to that question is yes.
Officials in Clay County revealed this week that human remains uncovered last month were those of Spc. Jose Ramirez. 30-year-old Justin Green was charged with the murder in February. Three others, including Green’s mother and sister Brittany, also face charges related to helping clean up the crime scene and hide the body.
One shocking detail seemed to be overlooked in the Associated Press’s story: A criminal complaint, obtained by Raw Story on Thursday, shows that Green’s sister [claims] he killed Ramirez “because Ramirez did not believe in God.”
After burying the body, police claim the group went to Brittany’s apartment and ordered a pizza and bread sticks with Ramirez’s credit card, and Brittany allegedly signed it using Ramirez’s last name.
