From Joel's blog (which has closed the comment section, by the way):
"For those not familiar, BTK is Dennis Rader of Wichita, Kansas. He was a serial killer dubbed as “BTK” for “Bind Torture and Kill.” Without going into too much detail, the name gives away how he murdered his victims. He did all of these killings in the 1970’s and 1980’s and was not caught until two years ago."
Hmmm, seems like Joel left something out ... oh yes, here it is, from Wikipedia:
"Rader led a dual life, one of a church-going family man and the other, a narcissistic sexual sadist and cold-blooded serial killer."
"He was also a member of Christ Lutheran Church, a Lutheran congregation of about 200 people. He had been a member for about 30 years and had been elected president of the Congregation Council. He was also a Cub Scout leader."
and here's another one:
"In 1991 Rader ran and was elected as a Republican supervisor of the Compliance Department at Park City..."
Good thing he wasn't an atheist. He might have killed somebody.
