Alabama Prison Guard Bennie Ashby Calls For The Killing Of Amanda Scott

bennie ashby alabama department of correctionsWhen Bennie O. Ashby, an officer with the Alabama Department of Corrections (a prison guard), saw that Amanda Scott had requested legal equality between Christians and non-Christians, he got angry. Bennie Ashby logged onto Facebook and joined others who were inciting violence against Scott.

Specifically, Bennie Ashby called for the killing of Amanda Scott. “Shoot her for treason,” he wrote.

Ashby urged the killing of Amanda Scott simply because she is an atheist who asked for an end to legal discrimination against atheists in Mobile, Alabama.

Does the Alabama Department of Corrections believe that it is appropriate to employ people who speak out in public, urging others to commit felony crimes, as Bennie Ashby has done?

    Thank you for taking the time to find out the identities of the people who posted death wishes about me. I had no idea that this man held such a position of power.

    • Have you asked to present an invocation before the commission meeting? If they do one, it’s your right to present one for the atheists. I have and will. I hope you will. These Xtian church/state intrusions need to be corrected. You are not alone. Keep up up the good work!

    How confident are you with the research? If this can be proven, the police need to be notified.

    throwing up in my mouth a little now. How can so many ignorant people still be out and proud. reason how? The USA doesn’t have a state religion, in fact that is specifically blocked by the constitution. Perhaps this idiot should be sentenced to 7th grade Civics, to be repeated until he gets at least a B. So sad.

    This individual’s remarks perfectly illustrate why a growing number of people choose to reject religion and all of its core beliefs. What he says derives from an obvious absence of both education and “Christian compassion”. On the other hand it is evidence that many Christians are embracing an extremist ideology that is the exact equivalent of radical Islam. It would be reasonable to classify them as TERRORISTS!

    Hitler said it best:”ITS EASY TO CONTROL PEOPLE,”THEY ARE STUPID”RELIGION HAS DONE NOTHING FOR HUMANITY EXCEPT TELL THE SHEEP WHAT TO THINK,DO,AND SAY..I WAS BORN INTO CHRISTIAN BONDAGE,KNOW I AM ENLIGHTED AT THE TIME WHEN THE NEW AGE OR REASON IS GAINING POWER…THINK OUT OF YOUR PROGRAMING CHRISTIANS AND SEE THE LIGHT.
