Murder trial starts for pastor

Bishop Robert Reaves gets his day in court this week with the start of jury selection in his murder trial. Reaves does not want the jury to hear that he is gay. I think he’s afraid the Christians on the jury might view that harshly. He should have thought of that before he lived the life of a  murdering (allegedly) hypocrite.

On Monday, Reaves attorney asked a judge to keep jurors from hearing that Reaves was gay. The judge said while he normally wouldn't allow jurors to hear about a defendant's sexual orientation, in this case it was relevant to the prosecution's theory.

Life in prison for a gay bishop. They might as well give him the death sentence.
