Man quotes Bible verse then plucks out his eye with his bare hands.

Andre Thomas, accused of killing his wife, son and step-daughter a week ago, apparently decided to take matters into his own hands recently while sitting in jail under a suicide watch.

Suspect pulls out own eye

Grayson County Sheriff Keith Gary said Thomas was in a jail cell directly across from the book-in station when he turned his back on the jail staff. Gary said the staff heard a scream, and then Thomas turned around with his eyeball in his hand.

Gary said Thomas quoted a Bible verse to the jail medical staff when they rushed in to help him. He quoted Mark 9:47, which states, “And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell.”

Nunya’s stance is looking more and more reasonable…

  1. you’ll get there bud just keep “an eye out” for such insanity’s like this then make note of how many have religious origins.

    I haven’t heard what “reasons” he has supposedly said as to why he brutally murdered & mutilated his wife and 2 children but is there really much doubt?

    Im not sure what chicken & Egg theory exist either on *Does religion make one insane?* or *Do the insane flock to religion?*

    Im sorta taking kind of a Omelet approach in that neither are exclusive.

    Its possible that if you aren’t insane then Religion is a sure fire way to lead you down that path, and if you are already insane then what better place to be than with your own kind where you fit right in.

  2. No argument from me.

    I stumbled over this a few days ago:

    Some of his original teachings are so downright barbaric that even fundamentalists wouldn’t take it literally:

    Matthew 18:8-9 (Mark 9:43-47)
    “And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life maimed or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire. “

    Paul Tobin was wrong…

  3. Lol…thoes verses are meant to be examples of how you should do anything to keep out of hell.  But none the less…some people are just stupid and shouldent be allowed to breed.  ::Takes out castrating knife:::

  4. First time I’ve ever visited this site and I’m oddly amused. But I wonder about a bunch of atheists that sit around and quote scripture?

  5. another lunatic you can add to the pile today.

    One of those snake dancing nutjob preachers got bit on the thumb today, of course the whole congregation of lunatics gathered around and *prayed* for him since he was a devout “True Christian” then there was no worry since god was going to save him. Paramedics were not called.

    Funeral services will be held on Friday LOL

    By the sound of it seems as thought this happens all the time, they just say -next-> F00…..DOH!

  6. Forgot to say since this is a sign of a “True Christian” I was thinking it would a good idea to maybe start a mail order viper service to ALL churches, see if I can proselytize them into believing that the ONLY way you show you’re a true Christian is to dance with the serpent.
    After all “The Bible says its so” should’nt be too hard a sell.

    This could seriously cut down on the numbers of Christians nationwide and can make money it at the same time

  7. That’s seriously a great fuckin’ idea.  (personal note: while I consider myself a Christian, it is because I do not believe in the Church of Man that I can seek out the Church of God way the hell away from the dumbshits that preach in most of those damned buildings…sweet Irony)

    back on the topic:  You should also have them convene in one mass…underground even.  Then you can drop a bunch of snakes into the pit and…

  8. Dont complain bout wat a preach says, if u dont trust if get up, stop wining n being rude n research it for ur self. pray n read the Bible.
    Faith in Christ doesn’t stop the questions, it anwsers them. with hope for a better world comes love, joy and peace.
    Ppl miss the God’s truth n reason n thats for everyone to be joyous and safe. Christ isn’t about a whole bunch of strict rules, just fun, love joy, n peace.
    is it so wrong to remove something that causes you to stumble out of your way?

  9. Funny how all the ‘saner’ followers would never take any advice of the guy who started it all. They spend most of their time making excuses for him when not adoring him.
