(Newser) – Two teenage lesbians were found shot in the head in a south Texas park on Saturday, and police have no apparent motive or suspect, MSNBC reports. Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, was dead on the scene, and Mary Christine Chapa, 18, is in a hospital in serious condition. Police in Portland, Texas, say the girls probably walked with their assailant into knee-deep grass and were fired on with a large-caliber handgun, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports.

“It’s marshy down there, and the tall grass didn’t allow any identifiable footprints," said Police Chief Randy Wright. But investigators did find shell casings there and say it was not a random incident, KRISTV.com reports. According to Mollie's roommate, Mollie and Mary were a fun-loving couple and hadn't encountered any resistance to their relationship in the small community. Mary, at least, is still "able to communicate," said Wright. "But we have not yet been able to talk with her."

Gays are NOT a problem- Gays are part of the Solution to present out-of-balance Birth/Death ratio of 2 to 1 Gays are not the ones having multi-birth families, over-reprodicing themselves, 3X,4X,5X,6X,7X,8X,9X,10X, etc that will certainly destroy the planet when it overwhelmes Earth's ability to sustain life as we know it. So who's the EVIL one? Those who step up to the plate to balance the Birth/Death ratio by implementing global socio-economic upheavals leading to mass GENOCIDE, or those who set policy to deny Birth Control? Can we say The POPE? Probably most EVIL Persons in history, fostering GENOCIDE In short, which is better? an end game of population control by DEATH our traditional FINAL SOLUTION, or a common sense approach of why not control births in the first place? DuUH....no common sense here

I think some people want it to be Christians that killed the women.

Please excuse me but why does this have to do with religion? What “if” some dude decided he wants one of the girls? She said eww no way!!… Or could have been a bother, mother, father, cousin, uncle… Please spare me the religious views (don’t believe Santa how can one believe in this god?).. is it just because they are lesbians? It is the ONLY reason you all are talking religion?… when more than likely it’s someone who is hurt by them loving each other…in today’s world if it’s not my way it’s wrong for all… People just suck anymore…
