Spammer threatening death to atheists and scientists arrested in Montreal.

Spammer threatening death to atheists and scientists arrested in Montreal.

Christian love at work:

A spammer who has been threatening atheists, pagans, scientists, and others with death or mutilation on Usenet, E-mail, and Twitter since 1995 has been arrested by the Montreal Quebec police today.

Tens of thousands of people around the world have received his threats of death or mutilation for their belief (or lack thereof).

His mother is quoted in the press today as saying the atheists who received his threats did not understand his message, though such messages as "You F------ C--- I'm going to come over and cut your head off" are rather clear.

He has been a thorn in the side of many Websites and blogs that post articles on atheism, paganism, or scepticism, and scientific blogs and magazines.

He actually turned up in person at a conference of atheists, from which he was blocked with a restraining order, putting true fear in the attendees.

This was posted to my wife BethK's Yahoo! group "Free Thinker's Refuge" this afternoon. It links to a blog of a person in Atlanta that was harassed by him for years, and the superhuman effort it took him and many others to convince the RCMP and the Montreal Police to take him seriously. It finally ended when an online petition was started, sending over three thousand E-mails to the Montreal Police, and the blogger linked the Montreal Police's E-mail address to his own and they started receiving his death threats directly.

It shows many screenshots of the E-mails and tweets received by dozens of people over the years from this fellow. Never forget: The Inquisition was not a perversion of Christianity, it was an expression of Christianity. - James.


I hope none of you were affected adversely by David Mabus. He's in custody, hopefully to get some needed psychiatric treatment.

RE: Spammer threatening death to atheists and scientists arrested in Montreal.
I fail to find a distinction between him, and anyone else threatening me with torture (even by proxy).
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

I assume that afforded by the constitution of one's country and the rule of law.IE the quaint notion that "everyone is equal before law"

In practice of course, some people are more equal than others.(with apologies to Aldous Huxley)

I say 'no' because none of these should have any 'protection' from 'harassment'.

In other words, Christians should have the same protections as atheists and 'pagans'.

Quaint isn't the word I was to use... I was going to suggest 'retarded'.
I've never been adversely affected by threats... usually they just piss me off Tongue
Please give me a home where cloud buffalo roam
Where the dear and the strangers can play
Where sometimes is heard a discouraging word
But the skies are not stormy all day

Unfortunately many of his pseudonyms have made it to our Hall of Shame.

RE: Spammer threatening death to atheists and scientists arrested in Montreal.
I read the subject wrong. I thought it was "Spammer threatening death to atheists, and also, scientists arrested in Montreal." I thought it was 2 unrelated stories.
"Sisters, you know only the north; I have traveled in the south lands. There are churches there, believe me, that cut their children too, as the people of Bolvangar did--not in the same way, but just as horribly. They cut their sexual organs, yes, both boys and girls; they cut them with knives so that they shan't feel. That is what the Church does, and every church is the same: control, destroy, obliterate every good feeling. So if a war comes, and the Church is on one side of it, we must be on the other, no matter what strange allies we find ourselves bound to."
