A prisoner is making news because he wants a new cellmate. His current one won’t “shut up about God.”
In a letter to an inmates’ magazine, [Steven] Relf wrote: “I recently had the displeasure of sharing a cell with a Bible-thumping believer.”
A source said Relf was “furious” at having to share at Manchester Prison with the Christian convict and wanted him to be “evicted”.
I have no sympathy for this guy. He raped two women (possibly more) while serving them as a bartender.
But I am curious about the story appearing at FOXNews (via The Sun).
They call him an atheist. Based on what? They don’t say. Because he complained about a Bible-thumping roommate? Well, who wouldn’t?
Reader Tom also asks a good question:
Why is it important to mention that the inmate who complained is an atheist, rapist, could have had as many as 40 victims and is a sexual predator, while there is no mention of the believers crimes or his name?
I don’t know if it’s false information. But it does look like sloppy, biased reporting.
