No, Pastor. Murder is not a sign of stable mental health, but allow me to explain why insanity is a very poor excuse. Plan, target, execution. These are not the actions of a crazy person. Now, they can be the result of insane beliefs, or the plan of someone with murderous intent who doesn't want to get his hands dirty. Do you, Mr Pastor, know anything about where your good, murdering Christian parisioner may have picked up on these beliefs or plans? Are there any other membets of your flock who may also have similar beliefs or plans. Thank God (if we even worship the same god), I don't rule the United States as a dictator. I would have you investigated as well and your parishers, and so with every church , school, or organization with mass murderers or terrorists that claim membership.

I'd plead not guilty regardless of if I had done it or not, but especially if I had done it.
