Sunday school teacher accused of murder and rape
Proving once again that religion has no special vanguard against immoral behavior, Melissa Huckaby, whose grandfather is a Baptist minister, was arrested today when the body of Sandra Cantu was found stuffed in a suitcase. The little girl was apparently also raped, which only makes the whole thing even more disturbing.
In typical ‘I know the killer but never really clued in’ fashion, her family describes Huckaby as having a strong religious upbringing, which leads me to believe any potential mental illness was probably disguised as simple religious faith. The criterion for crazy is a little different with religious people, so it never really surprises me anymore when one of them pops and takes a few victims with them. How tragic it had to be an innocent and beautiful little girl.
Christians have a hard time identifying why human beings occasionally do bad things. If you understand that unethical behavior can be heavily influenced by mental disorders, you’re in a better position to help avoid these kinds of tragedies. On the other hand, when you put your fate in ‘God’s Hands’, you can’t be surprised when everything goes terribly wrong.
