I'm approving this, but I very much hope we've done more than just submit this here. This is something that should also be submitted to the appropriate authorities. He's probably just blustering, but there's always the chance he's not.

According to PZ in an update, the authorities have been notified.
9/30/2009 11:19:21 PM
Yeah, PZ says he put together a 61 page booklet of this guys nonsense and handed it over to his local police. Don't know that they'll really do anything with it, of course.

Feel that Christian love!

Don't drop the soap, buddy.

I'm afraid to ask...What was the blasphemy in question?
Besides...read Ezekiel lately? God abjured the collective guilt conceit there. Only the individual who showed corruption is to be punished. Or perhaps you'd prefer God's lesson to Jonah regarding the worthiness of Nineveh to be saved from judgement?

"Love thy neighbor"?
"Love thy enemy"?
Who said it?

Fully expect him to back peddle with the "OH I WASN'T SERIOUS, FREE SPEECH DERP" line if/when he is apprehended by the authorities.
He would only get a few months of jail time if they crack down on him, I'm thinking an exuberant fine is a better punishment.

@Skyknight: The blasphemy committed by PZ Myers was saying that a consecrated host was "just a cracker".
Which it is.

Meet the USMS. They really love people making death threats. After all, making a death threat is a felony in many parts of the States.

Where's that Internet Tough Guy image when you need it?
(On a more serious note, I'm glad this guy was reported to the authorities. He's likely just an Internet Tough Guy, but he seems a tad too dedicated for a run-of-the-mill troll/poe, and you really never know...)
10/1/2009 12:18:53 AM
I said "love thy neighbor"! Can't you get a hint?
10/1/2009 12:41:18 AM
he should better be locked away,
just to prevent that maybe he makes his detailed threats come true ;)

Oh, bugger. This loony will come here and spam the fuck out of us, now.
Serious loon, this one. Believes things are foretold by Nostradamus and (wait for it) Depeche Mode lyrics.
10/1/2009 1:07:57 AM
Jesus fucking Christ something is disturbingly wrong with that nutjob.
10/1/2009 1:11:08 AM
You may not want to use your real name when making threats like that. Not that it can't be traced anyway, but you just made it a whole lot easier for the police to find you.
10/1/2009 1:52:36 AM
Thou shalt not kill (unless you really want to)
10/1/2009 5:18:05 AM
Oh that's great! the crazy montreal stalker made it to FSTDT!
10/1/2009 5:30:45 AM
Holy fuck. Where is the FBI? Is the FBI on this? Because they fucking need to be. Death threats are serious business (and not in the ironic 4chan way).
10/1/2009 6:08:28 AM
I don't know what state this occurred in, but in most states this is something called "criminal threat" and is taken very seriously. Ahh, just read the blog and see that this guy lives in Canada. Makes it a little more difficult, but not that much to convict him. He's obviously very insane, which means these threats should be taken even more seriously since you don't know what a crazy person will do.
But he can't be a True ChristianTM. True ChristiansTM never make death threats. Nor do they shoot abortion doctors or blow up abortion clinics.

..and when Dennis is done with his rampage, the nations Christians will say that it was his atheism that made him kill people.
I hope the cops bust this guy good.
10/1/2009 6:26:28 AM
Ah, can you feel that old time Christian love?
Hey, wait a minute!!! I thought only atheists, pagans, liberals, vegetarians, gun control advocates and single mothers threaten peoples lives because they don't have the wove of Jebus in dere heawts?!!
10/1/2009 6:27:11 AM
The guy lives in Quebec. It's more an Interpol case than FBI.
10/1/2009 6:58:20 AM
And people say we need Jesus. And wonder why I follow the gods I do.
10/1/2009 6:58:59 AM
Is this a job for the cops or mental health? He may belong in a rubber room.
