Famous Youtube Christian, Tony48219, Murders 20 Year Old Girl

For anyone who has seen Anthony Powell's (aka Tony48219) videos on youtube it's apparent that the man was suffering from a serious mental illness. He would often rant incoherently about the virtues of his christian life, evolution and the immorality, anger and stupidity of atheists, and rarely got through a sentence without uttering numerous expletives. His hatred for women was also apparent in one video entitled "black women don't deserve respect" where he tells women to be obedient and submissive to their "kings".

Nobody, apart from "liz" on FSTDT, thought that his mental instability and hatred for women would lead to the events which unfolded on Friday, April 10 2009, when Anthony Powell, 28, took a gun to Henry Ford Community College and murdered 20 year old student Asia McGowan before killing himself.

I don't think Anthony Powell's religion caused him to become a murderer, instead i think his delusions lead him to be a christian, and his hatred and mental illness caused him to be a murderer. Despite the fact that the christians on youtube are frantically trying to distance themselves from this as if the only important thing here is the reputation of their silly little cult.

Good job for Anthony Powell his god was imaginary, otherwise he would be in a lot of trouble right now.

  2. That was amazing in the most horrible way...

    I'm sure anyone who has been active on youtube regarding atheism and religion has seen the twisted and convoluted arguments posed by Venomfang but I never realized what kind of an effect his pseudo-scientific attempts at logic could have on people. Of course there are many factors including the general christian doctrine and his mental health problems that directed his downward slide, but he seems to have been put over the edge by an inability to understand and cope with such a heated debate. Most well read atheists are able to discern both sides of the argument and realize where the debate originates, but to him, the only thing that made sense was that there was some type of demonic force at work. Such a conflict of information must have been overwhelming and simply crossed the wrong wires in his mind.

    It's a shame that such a passionate person become submerged in something that failed to direct his energy in a positive direction...

  5. Do you ever think that maybe religion was a tiny part of this event and that you are just exploiting a horrible event to push your ideas.....just a thought

  7. This guy is [was] absolutely nuts, he neaded serious psychological evaluation. If people had not been blinded by his religious "good intentions" a true tragedy could have been prevented.

  8. Whenever a religious person commits a wrong, atheists often use it as an opportunity to bash religion; they link the event with the person's religion as if the 2 are linked. When atheists commit wrongs, atheists do not link those people's wrong with their atheism. So when atheists like Pekka-Eric Auvinen, Matti Saari, Harris and Klebold, for example, go on a murderous rampages atheism is not to be blamed; but when someone like Powell murders suddenly somehow it was his religion that is at fault be it claims such as he was "delusional" or Christianity prevented him from getting medical help. These arguments are fallacious and just goes to show the hypocrisy that engulfs many atheists. Atheists tend to claim they are rational, logical thinkers but their anti-religion bigotry proves them to be quite the contrary. Most arguments made by atheists are ad hominem attacks; how can you, for example, prove Christians are sick, delusional, wrong? You cannot. How can atheists prove they are not the ones who are delusional, sick, wrong? They cannot. Atheists protest religious extremism, but they usually do so through extremism of their own.

  13. @anonymous. Religious people by their very nature set themselves up as superior to heretics and non-believers, often lauding it over lesser sinful, unsaved mortals ... check out you tube for a good cross section of rather (arrogant and aggressive) unChrist like self-professed Christians! "Whenever a religious person commits a wrong, atheists often use it as an opportunity to bash religion," wow what a huge, sweeping generalisation, how often is this mentioned as a factor in news stories? When did Fox/CNN do a special on 'Cunning Christian Killers - The Hidden Danger', nope, didn't think so.
    You seem to want special consideration for Christians ('religion') and yet seem to be fond of lumping ALL 'atheists' together, does massive pigeon-hole include agnostics, gnostic, rational atheists, secular humanists? What about heretics? Arianism, heterodoxy, or even Manichaeism. The bible sought to explain disease and medical disorders as 'evils' sent the devil mental illness as 'demonic posession' plagues (contagious diseases) were sent by God to punish 'bad people' does that not sound just a bit odd ... pathogenic microbial agents do not have beliefs, and are neither good nor evil ... Look if you were putting a crucifix on a wall, and your up a ladder and it toppled and you fell on to a table and the table injured you, would the ladder and/or table be evil? Think about it - rationally. Hold on partner, atheists are not the majority stake-holder when it comes to bigotry and intolerance, organised religion does that way better than any heretic or non-believer ever could ... and for eternity too! As a heretic I have no agenda, no doctrine or dogma ties my hands - and I am not out to 'prove' anything to anyone, unfortunately the burden of proof falls upon the orthodoxy and it's adherents, my life is fine without religious 'fear and loathing' ... Judging by the number of times I am stopped in the street or accosted at my door by 'evangelising faiths' (Krishna, JW, Mormons, etc) this personal state of bliss obviously bothers 'believers' BIG time! You ask the reader here to compare belief and non-belief by using two polarities you effectively excluding anything in between - which is sometimes called 'false dilema' and is precisely the same sort of psychological warfare going on between Creationism and Evolution. Let me end with the words of man of religion whom I admire, "There is a story, which is fairly well known, about when the missionaries came to Africa. They had the Bible and we, the natives, had the land. They said "Let us pray," and we dutifully shut our eyes. When we opened them, why, they now had the land and we had the Bible. ~ Bishop Desmond M. Tutu!
