Canadian serial murderer wanted to rid world of ‘evil ways’

Canadian serial-killer Robert Pickton, convicted in the deaths of six drug-addicted prostitutes, said in letters published Monday he aimed to rid society of its “evil ways.”

The two letters obtained by the Vancouver Sun are replete with biblical references and spelling mistakes, and provide the first insight into what might have motivated the pig farmer to turn to mass murder.

“I know I was brought into this world to be hear today to change this world of there evil ways,” Pickton wrote in 2006 to California resident Thomas Loudamy, who corresponds with prison inmates as a hobby.

“They even want to dis-re-guard the ten command-ments from the time that Moses in his day brought in power which still is in existence today.”

In one of the letters, Pickton offers his own interpretation of Ephesians 5:5: “You can be sure that no immoral, impure or greedy person will in-herit the kingdom of God … Don’t be fooled by whose who try to excuse these sins, for the terrible anger of God comes upon all those who disobey him.”

This is rich. A serial-killer citing the Ten Commandments.

I can never figure out why these types of world purification psychos never short-cut the whole affair and just kill themselves. That’s a whole lot of purification right there.

Now. he does have a point, doesn’t he? The bible gives all kinds of helpful hints what to do with those offending god, their parents etc. None of it pleasent.
So, he just continues in a time honored tradition.
