Atheist Sex Offenders Are Dangerous

Posted on | October 22, 2013 | 56 Comments

Ohio sex offender James Maxie is a violent atheist.

Yes, I know what you’re probably thinking, but this is not about that. Actually, it’s about an anti-Christian criminal in Ohio:

A self-described militant atheist with a criminal past faces multiple charges after an attack on a pastor who, after his sermon, had asked the man’s girlfriend if she felt safe.
James Maxie, 28, of Springfield, Ohio, is charged with second-degree felonious assault and misdemeanor resisting arrest after an incident Sunday at The Bridge Community Church in North Hampton.
Police Chief Jarrod Campbell said in his 11 years with the department, he’s rarely dealt with “an incident this brutal.”
The Rev. Norman Hayes, 57, said he feared for his life and begged for the attack to stop. Hayes suffered a broken nose, bruises and three long cuts that required stitches across his face. . . .
Maxie and the girlfriend, who attends the church, approached Hayes after the service. She told police that Hayes asked her if Maxie was abusing her, and Maxie became furious, striking pastor several times in the face in the church hallway.
“He came from nowhere and hit me … and knocked me down, and then he got on top of me and just kept hitting me over and over,” Hayes said. . . .
The brutality of the beating in addition to the location are why police charged Maxie with a felony, Campbell said.
“Churches are somewhere where people go to worship their particular religion, and violence is usually the last thing you see,” he said.
Campbell is working with the Clark County Prosecutor’s Office to see if additional charges should be filed.
Maxie served two years in prison after being convicted of felonious assault. He’s also a convicted sex offender, charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in Clark County, and was sentenced to five years of probation, beginning in October 2008, according to the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. In 2004, Maxie was charged with four counts of cruelty to animals in Springfield.
A self-described militant atheist, according to his Facebook page, a day before the assault Maxie shared a photo from another page titled, “I’m proud to be Atheist.” . . .

(Hat-tip: Comin’ to Gitcha on Twitter.) By the way, I was going to make the headline “Atheist Pedophiles Are Dangerous” because this dangerous criminal was convicted of sex with a minor. But as violent and creepy as this convicted felon is, maybe he isn’t as bad as that.

    Kasich may not have that money like he thinks. Although he used a line item veto on the prohibition against expanding Medicaid, the rest of the law is written such that he still does not have the authority to do what he is trying to do. His stacking of the controlling board won’t do him much good either, as the Controlling Board does not have the authority to do what he wants. He’s also planning to foray into Clintonism/Obamaism with Executive Orders. He will find himself embroiled in a suit to stop what he’s trying to do, and in Ohio he can be sued for misbehavior in office, which is the method of removing an officeholder that is misbehaving in Ohio.
    The suit for misbehavior is a civil proceeding, and it is one of the few civil proceedings in which someone is “convicted” if the suit is successful. When the verdict is announced, the term ends at that point, and the LT. Gov would assume office for the remainder of the term.
    Kasich appears to be asking for it. The GOP establishment in Ohio has done a very poor job of choosing its candidates for Gov in recent years. The last one was the corruptocrat Bob Taft, and now Kasich. The guy previous to Taft was “King” George Voinovich who was part of the Cleveland apparatus that is corrupt to its core. The Ohio GOP is a truly pathetic lot.

    The problem is what to do with them if they are not going to be kept in jail forever. Certainly jail is not going to fix any of his character or mental problems.
