want some coal?
here's a story for a small town (Bastrop, Tx) paper about a local pastor who was arrested for animal cruelty.http://bastropadvertiser.com/2012/01/20/pastor-arrested-on-cruelty-charge/
The part that bugged me was the comments, several members of the congregation jumped on full of condemnation and anger. Not at the preacher, at the paper for publishing it.
Go down to comment 19 or so and there are extensive details from the cat's owner.

It's really at the point for me where I can only shake my head at each additional specific incident. The pastor in the story you cite, assuming the facts are as reported, is just one person who did a nasty thing; in almost any such circumstance, the person will have condemners and defenders. I don't see any indication that the pastor did it because of religion... now, if the cat had been allegedly possessed and the pastor had killed it to cast out the demons, that'd be another notch in religion's bedpost.
