16-year-old James Doyle was shot in the chest by 14-year-old Daniel Nadler on June 27, 2010. Doyle was an Atheist, Nadler a Christian. They were arguing about religion at the time of the murder. Apparently, Christian + hormonal teen + argument about religion + shotgun = murder, but does not equal a hate crime. The case has been under reported in the press. Plus, it was not an accident.

Murdering someone for their faith would be a hate crime, murdering them for their lack of faith is not. x__x Welcome to the 21st century.
A 14 year old kid is old enough to make his own decisions and be responsible. I hope they put him away for a long time so he doesn't kill anymore people just because they don't see eye to eye.
This is absolute bs. If it were opposite I it would be considered a hate crime. Sadly, these days killing an atheist is non even considered a crime I guess, the boys getting second degree murder or less for premeditating to kill him! Wow and Christians claim they have morals. What morals? There's no justice here.
