Churches can do great things for society when they put their minds to it. Some of the greatest charities in this country are run by churches. Churches can also do great evil when they lead their congregations astray. Such is the case of Hannah Overton.
As you should know by now Overton was convicted of killing her foster son Andrew Burd by sodium poisoning and blunt force trauma. The number of atrocities committed on Andrew have been well documented on this site. Now the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals will be reviewing Hannah Overton’s case. The reason they are reviewing the case is because her church and the ‘Free Hannah’ movement have raised money to produce a video declaring her innocence.
The group has also sent letters to Texas Governor Rick Perry to plead her case. If you’ve been following the Republican primaries you should know by now that Perry is a bigot that hides behind the Bible.
I don’t know how much money they raised but whatever the amount was it probably could have been served better going to some needy families instead of trying to free a convicted child killer. If you ever read any of the excuses that the Free Hannah movement has put out there they sound like the ramblings of a 4-year-old trying to get out of trouble from their parents.
I think the sane people of this world need to fire back and fight for Andrew Burd since he can’t fight for himself.
I would like everybody out there to write the Texas Court of Appeals and tell them why they think that Hannah Overton should be kept behind bars. Their address is 201 W 14th St Austin, TX 78701.
When you write them please be courteous and professional in your letters. And if you’re a Christian please let them know that as well. Let them know that not all of us are blinded by our faith.
