A Baraboo [WI] man is accused of repeatedly shocking a male dance instructor with a stun gun, claiming the instructor was a “sinner” who “defiles married women.”

A Dane County prosecutor says 59-year-old Kevin Johnson of Baraboo hastily arranged a dance lesson at the instructor’s Madison home and showed up with a stun gun and sledgehammer last Friday.

A criminal complaint says Johnson told a detective that his church does not condone touching while dancing and that he was going to scare the instructor “and tell him to leave the women alone.”

    Who wants to bet that the accused man never actually read the Bible in its entirety (Or even only the New Testament)? He needs a “church” to read and interpret the Bible for him, which can lead to a lot of trouble.

    “A criminal complaint says Johnson told a detective that his church…” Church, not the Bible, dictating what is right and wrong. Heh…..

    Another silly church-goer.

    I wonder how he’ll like “dancing” in prison.

    The real crime is that his freedom of religious expression was trampled by a government that is overly intrusive in matters of regulation and taxation.

    One more locked up religious nut is one step closer to utopia

    and they are worried about middle east Muslim extremist , we got our own kind you don’t have to travel around globe just to find some extremist to kill.

    I hate these religious people they are always disruptive to other people’s life everywhere , they should be prosecuted hard and put in jail so hopefully they will learn their lessons and keep their crazy ideas to themselves.

    There was that guy a few weeks ago that killed an abortion doctor , now this. It is really upsetting.

    For those of you not familiar with Wisconsin, Baraboo is about AN HOUR AWAY! He drove an hour just to shock this poor guy!

    Sorry but you don’t get to impose your religious views on others. You can try and convert them but if they tell you to bleep off the correct thing to do is to bleep off.

    Reminds me of an old joke. Guy’s gonna marry a Jewish gal and rabbi is telling the things he can and can’t do with a Jew. When it comes to sex, he can screw in any position except face to face because that might lead to dancing.

    Funnier in the long form.

  13. Lone Wolf says:

    Only in a religious based morality could something like touching be considered a sin.

  14. scooter says:

    So dancing with a married woman is a sin?

    What about using a stun gun on another person???

    The whole thing is simply shocking.

    Pun intended? 🙂

    I was taught that dancing, playing cards, and going to movie theaters were wrong. The Bible doesn’t say anywhere that it is a sin to dance or go to movie theaters. In fact, the wife of King David was made barren for criticizing David for dancing.

    I dance Latin dance, which includes salsa, meringue, and bachata. All require some degree of touching. Some of the people I dance with are Christians too, and they don’t view dancing as a sin.

    This guy committed a sin by attacking the dance instructor. We are supposed to be like Christ and Jesus didn’t go around tasing people for what is legalism. Jesus actually condemned legalism.

    Indeed it can! Unfortunately, that is precisely the situation in which the vast majority of Christians throughout history have found themselves. Until the invention of the printing press and increasing literacy rates, very few Christians even in the developed world had any direct access to the Bible. They were entirely dependent upon the Church (or others) for any instructions on what to believe about their Creator. Even today, anyone who is illiterate is completely dependent on someone else to tell them about the god they must believe in for salvation, and they have no grounds to disagree with anything they are told.

    You would almost think that an omnipotent Creator who really wanted a relationship with his precious humans could have devised some sort of system for communication that wasn’t so easily corrupted to serve the purposes of anyone claiming to represent the Church.

    Such irrational beliefs completely baffle me.

    Let this be a warning to all you Macarena dancer’s out there. Touching yourself is a sin too.

  19. Improbus says:

    The only thing you have to fear about Christianity is its “followers”.

    Wavetop, Yup! 🙂

    I’m going to stick to my day job though.
