|Freezer murder suspect preaches|
Well, another pastor has bitten the dust. This is such a heinous crime that if he is found guilty, he deserves the death penalty. The alleged murderous scumbag is Pastor Anthony Hopkins, who was leading a revival in a small church on the outskirts of Jackson, Ala., when police discovered the body of a woman, presumed to be his wife Arletha Hopkins, stuffed in a freezer at his house in Mobile. According to the Press-Register, the police acting on a tip given by Hopkins’ daughter, the eldest of eight children, said they knew where to look and what they were likely to find when they searched the Rylands Street house. He was also charged with sexually abusing his eldest daughter.
Mobile Police Chief Phillip Garrett said that the corpse looked like it had been in the freezer for “quite a while.” He said that it is unclear exactly how long she had been in the freezer , but nobody has heard from Arletha Hopkins in more than three years.
Funny, it seems as though he had a premonition of what was to come because he spoke about forgiveness during his last sermon. Hopkins told the congregation that his eldest daughter had left the house.”He said he told her she had to do what she had to do,” Jackson said. Looking at his seven children, “He asked them to forgive him for his sins: past, present and future.” If he is guilty of killing his wife and of the rape and sodomy of his daughter, he deserves to the death penalty in no uncertain terms. What is going on in this country? So many people have lost their way.
