Courthouse Killer Finds A New Purpose

Hat tip to Kerry Gilliard who links to an interesting news item. Remember Brian Nichols, the jail breaking murdering thug from Fulton County, GA? During his killing spree, he took a young gal named Ashley Smith hostage, and for 7 hours, they shared drugs together and then Ashely began reading to him sections from Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Life. Nichols was talked into giving up and Smith became an instant Christian celebrity. Churches committed to the 40 Days of Purpose found new energy to drive their purpose even 10 more days.

Well, Nichols has now found his own new purpose to drive him: He converted to Isalm upon his return to prison. The news item was rather vague, so we don't know if it is the real, Jihad loving, historic Islam, or the Jehovah's Witnesses version of Islam, the Nation of Isalm. Apologetic Apple polisher, Rick Abanes, has yet to comment.

Fred, can you imagine the jeers Nichols got in prison for his whole episode with the “Driven” chick? I would image that jettisoning Christianity and embracing the Nation of Islam promises a tougher image for him in the big house.
