So, anti-God Christian haters are set to notch their holsters with another "victory" over decency. Has the celebration begun, or is a trial necessary first?

You call a crooked judge "decent" . Wow your an Idiot. Why don't you go move in with him at the jail. We don't want him, his kind, or those who will defend corruption ,here at all. Liers, Thieves, Crooked politicians, Crooked cops, And anyone else defending them, working with them , or ignoring them when they could do something about the problems are not needed here anymore. GET OUT , WE ARE SICK OF YOUR KIND. We will continue to come after every crooked jackass we can find.

You would have me imprisoned for supporting the premise in our judicial system that a man is presumed innocent until found guilty by a jury of his peers. You devalued your opinion by denying the premise. Lol here.

Bill, it's primarily the Christians who are disgusted with Taylor's sin rampage, all the while hiding inside the church. Apparently you don't know what has gone on here.

fyi, some posters might claim to be Christians in an effort to lend credibility to their statements, but the content and nature of most of their posts, together with a doubtful alliance with those who can only express their thoughts with malicious vitriol, exposes them as pretenders.

criditt, I'll happily prove to you that 100% of what I've said is truthful and accurate, including my identity, for a little wager of a couple thousand bucks and a public exchange/disclosure of identities (including every alias used in Taylor discussions). No con, no bluff. Bring it.

If, by preponderance of evidence, an indictment to trial has been initiated by the state, one has to wonder what you are railing on.

Your only question is to be answered, yes, a trial is necessary to culminate this page of recent Hawkins embarrasment.

on a side note : it isnt anti-anything to demand accountability or to investigate the claims of injustice regardless of the complaintants beleifs or social status.

Does anyone know if Taylor appeared in court in Rogersville today or did he let his lawyer do that for him? Also, was any of the nutty family there?

No he didn't show. His lawyer appeared for him to plead "not guilty"
