“In his bedroom, which Cook described as a converted garage, the murder suspect had a copy of the Koran open to a page which talks about homosexuality as a sin.” Nonetheless, “it’s quite unfortunate but he had a real, real warped understanding, in my opinion, of the religion of Islam and its position on the gay lifestyle and what one should do.” Warped in what way? In which version of Sharia does Islamic law not mandate death for lesbians? The Qur’an says: “Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women – bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way.” (4:15) The “other ways” that Allah has ordained for them all involve death. Yet nonetheless, even though Cosby left the Qur’an open to a passage condemning homosexuality, “police, though, say they are still searching for a motive in the gruesome crime.” That is the very definition of willful ignorance.
“Texas dad killed daughter, her lesbian lover because he disliked that she was gay: mom,” by Sasha Goldstein for the New York Daily News, March 14 (thanks to David):
A Texas dad disgusted with his daughter’s lesbian lifestyle murdered the young woman and her lover, the girl’s mother said in a shocking twist to a gruesome case.
James Cosby, 46, bludgeoned his daughter Britney Cosby to death and shot her lover, Crystal Jackson, on March 6 before dumping the bodies near the ferry gate in Port Bolivar, Texas, police believe.
The bodies were found near a Dumpster around 7:30 a.m. the next day outside a Fisherman’s Cove food mart.
Both women were 24.
Britney’s mother told KHOU-TV that Cosby was angry his daughter was gay.
Capital murder charges are pending against James Cosby, a registered sex offender released from prison in October, Galveston Sheriff Office Capt. Barry Cook told the Daily News. The murder weapons have not been recovered and Britney Cosby’s recently purchased 2006 Kia Sorento is still missing.
Cops think the car could be a key piece of evidence linking the crime.
But James Cosby is held in jail on a combined $500,000 bond after cops collared the man for tampering with evidence — and he is the prime suspect in at least one of the murders.
His fingerprints were found on a piece of paper on the bodies and pools of blood were found inside Cosby’s Houston home, Cook said.
“At least one murder happened at his house,” Cook said.
Cosby moved in to the home only in October after he was released following a two-year stint in prison. His daughter and her grandmother lived at the home and let him move in.
In his bedroom, which Cook described as a converted garage, the murder suspect had a copy of the Koran open to a page which talks about homosexuality as a sin, family advocate Quanell X told KHOU. The find may give some insight into Cosby’s disturbed mindset, the advocate said.
“It’s quite unfortunate but he had a real, real warped understanding, in my opinion, of the religion of Islam and its position on the gay lifestyle and what one should do,” Quanell X said.
Police, though, say they are still searching for a motive in the gruesome crime.
“We don’t know (that their sexual orientation) was a contributing factor to their deaths,” Cook said. “We haven’t ruled it out, but we haven’t proved it, either.”…
