Ummmm who cares if he was a polygamist or not, He Killed 9 people!!!! Don't get me wrong I don't support that lifestyle, but to me killing 9 people spells MURDERER.... sick bastard :(
Oh the media loves to do that. Let a wiccan hurt someone - it will suddenly be 'a self professed witch".... But let a Christian kill someone, and you'll never hear a religion mentioned.
The thing is, incite hatred and feed suspicion about very minority groups, and then you will get some controversy going, and a good deal of Bible thumping, and you will sell papers.
