Christian man stabs homeless girlfriend to death behind Mississippi church

There's two articles on this, the other will follow.
But of course, this was not an honor killing, it has nothing to do with Christianity. If it did then FOX news wold be all over it, right?

WLBT News has confirmed the identity of a homeless woman found stabbed to death in south Jackson on Sunday.

Gina O'Flaherty, 47, died after being stabbed in the abdomen on a property adjacent to the Southside Baptist Church on Raymond Road.

The church's Pastor, Jeff Parker, says he had ministered to O'Flaherty on multiple occasions.

Parker said O'Flaherty lived with another man in a tent on property adjacent to the church.

Police have arrested Robert Bass, 47, and charged him with murder in O'Flaherty's death.

"It sounds almost out of character for the type of man he was," Pastor Parker said. "It doesn't sound like something he would do."

Pastor Parker says the two had lived in a tent in a wooded area behind the church.

"She would come on Wednesday nights, eat our soup," Pastor Parker said. "She was a sweet lady, very kind, gentle."

Gina O'Flaherty lived long enough to tell authorities who inflicted the stab wound that ended her life.

O'Flaherty, 47, a homeless woman in Jackson, died at Central Mississippi Medical Center on Sunday after being taken there from Southside Baptist Church, where she was an active participant in many of its programs.

Police have arrested her 48-year-old boyfriend, Robert Bass, on a murder charge in her death.

Southside pastor Jeff Parker said O'Flaherty lived in a tent city in the woods along the east side of the church's property. He said it's his understanding she was stabbed there, and somehow made her way up the road to the church, where she called for help.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said O'Flaherty was pronounced dead at CMMC around 6:04 p.m.

O'Flaherty used to live on Gibraltar Drive, but a series of financial issues caused her to lose her house, Parker said. Since then, she was a part of the Southside family, Parker said.

The loss of the friendly, gentle woman who loved prayer meetings has shocked those involved in the church's homeless ministry.

"We just loved her," Parker said. "I was so upset last night."

O'Flaherty said last Wednesday she wanted to be a part of a "Celebrate Recovery" program, which will minister to people needing help with addictions. Parker said she never gave any indication of having any addictions.

"If she had alcohol or drug problems, she was one person who did not show that here at this church," he said.

Parker said if O'Flaherty had gotten involved with the program, she could have been moved to a women's shelter that is opening at Southside.

"She was a sweet lady," Parker said. "She was always very kind and appreciative of everything we did for her."

A doctor who had recently visited Southside and was moved by the ministry had offered to take several of the homeless people to dinner one night next week. O'Flaherty was looking forward to the event, Parker said.

Bass, who is originally from Texas, is called "Slim" by his friends. Parker said Bass "was very nice around here."

Bass' initial court appearance will be Wednesday.

So what if this was a mosque instead of a church, and there was an imaam instead of a paator, and the woman had a muslim name and the guy had a Muslim name, this for SURE would be an honor killing, this for SURE would be on FOX news, and for SURE the whole islamic scholarly panel of Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, David Wood, and numerous others would be getting the spotlight for info on Islam.

It is a testimony to the intelligence of this blogs author that they didn't even get the name of the state correct in the title of the blog...
