Woman kills dog for chewing Bible

It’s not terribly difficult to find news about people abusing children and using religion as an excuse–but how often do you hear about religion-induced animal abuse?

Miriam Smith of South Carolina has been arrested for torturing and killing a “devil dog” for the sin of chewing on her Bible. ├é┬áNormally I’m not a fan of pit bulls, but it’s sickening to think of a dumb animal suffering for so trivial a crime.

I dearly hope the authorities will throw the book–and not the Good Book–at this woman, and not let her off the hook because of religion.
