Montreal Police Investigating Threats Against Atheists

Whoever said an online petitions never accomplished anything? According to the Toronto Sun, Montreal police have opened a criminal investigation of Dennis Markuze (aka, David Mabus) for sending numerous death threats to various atheist bloggers, scientists, etc. As someone who has received quite a few of these threats, I welcome this news. I sincerely hope that Mr. Markuze finally receives the help he so desperately needs.

I'd also like to thank my fellow atheist bloggers and others in the atheist community for standing together on this to promote the online petition. This effort clearly made a difference.
