Woman attempts to beat Jesus into another woman.

face-palm-JesusA woman by the name of Margurite Dawn Haragan of Boise has taken a novel approach to converting a Jewish lady to Christianity. Instead of wasting hours giving testimony and preaching from the Good Book, she opted for the more expedient approach of simply beating the shit out of the poor woman until she agreed to convert:

Prosecutors: Jewish woman beaten, harassed in conversion attempt.

“The defendant was banging on the front window yelling at her that she better believe in Jesus and she was not going to leave until she did believe in Jesus,” Ada County Prosecutor Dave Rothcheck said. He said the victim, identified in court only as “A.G.,” opened her door to tell Haragan to leave and to write down her license plate number.

That’s when the suspect slapped her in the face and dragged her to the ground by her hair, Roscheck said.

“The defendant began kicking the victim in the stomach and thigh area,” he said. “During this time the defendant was screaming at the victim that she better accept Jesus or she would not let up.”

Eventually the victim did agree to convert to Christianity and, true to her word, Haragan stopped stomping on the victim’s neck and let her go. Despite her success, Harragan has since been arrested and is facing two counts of malicious harassment that will be considered a felony due to it being considered a hate crime. She’s facing up to 5 years in prison for each count and is cooling her jets in jail thanks to a $100,000 bond.

But it’s all worth it because she managed to save at least one soul from going to Hell for believing in a false religion. I’m sure Jesus will have a special reward for her once she makes it to Heaven.

  1. She seems to have more than her share of anger issues and crazy whackjobbery; there are at least two prior charges for battery in Google search for her, going back 20 years. Both were dismissed by the prosecutor. I hope this time it sticks.

  2. Strange that, but it’s been de rigeur for Islam for over 1400 years and one is automatically labeled islamophobic if one tries call them out on it. But only noteworthy if you’re attacking Christians.

  3. Actually, John, from what I’ve experienced the vast majority of believers (of any religion) somehow manage to get through day after day without trying to beat belief into anyone. Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Shinto, Zoroastrianism, whatever you happen to be. Sure, there are Muslims out there trying to impose their belief on others through violence. Oddly enough, the same is true for a lot of other religions depending on where in the world you happen to be talking about and what time period. Almost as though this isn’t so much a symptom of religion, but of the human condition and with religion being a human creation it’s as flawed as the people who made it up.

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, is that a lot of people are looking for any excuse to hate someone else. Which is probably why we haven’t figure out that trying to impose our beliefs on others through violence rarely works. Those people don’t really care if you believe as they do or not so long as they can impose their will on you. Religion is just as good an excuse for that as any other.
