    So...what exactly are to infer from this? Is it important for the Deseret News to try and prove that this guy really isn't interested in religion?

    he seeketh the complicity of the faith in his manner of deceit! he be far from righteousness in his self immersions of grandeur.

    in other words, i think he's playing this thing quite close to the cuff, mocking the love of the faithful and acting pretty selfish to boot!

    don't worry, he's gonna get his, the Lord has a special place just for him!

    I wonder if he takes requests...
    Keep the Commandments
    Choose the Right
    Do what is Right
    Just to name a few he might want to sing and that he should have followed

    One of these days, I would love to see a member of the jury shout out a request. Just once!!!!

    Given the fact that Mitchell is environmentally and action sensitive only supports the notion that he is sane and rational and should be tried and sentenced accordingly.

    It doesn't matter how much he prays. God does not uphold those who do evil.

    And....Satan does not uphold his followers. In the end he desserts them. After Mitchell has done his bidding for many years, he has left him to rot.

    Good lesson for the rest of us.

    Why are we giving this manipulator so much attention by drawing additional attention to his antics? This is not news. If you want to reinforce something, focus on his history of sick and sadistic behavior which has been, and continues to be, a scourge in the community and devastating to his victims. So much coverage not only is without merit, but serves to encourage him to continue this sillines. In this case, the less said, the better for us all.

    Crazy?? I'll tell you what's crazy. A judicial system for even allowing the possibility that this maniac might get off.

    "Mitchell reportedly never sings once he has been seated in the annex."

    Perhaps he prefers an audience.

    Maybe he should change it up. The people are just waiting for "Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer" or "Here Comes Santa Claus".

    Indeed----crazy---like a fox!!!

    The other prisioners won't put up with his games for more than a few minutes then the problem will be solved!

    If Mitchell doesn't sing once he's been sent to the annex it can only mean he is in control of his behavior. He probably won't sing much after he's behind bars in a federal prison either.

    I bet he's glad it's Christmas time as he probably got tired of singing the same songs... only when he was in court. I think they should just drag the trials out even longer until he finally gives in and says, "Alright you win, I've been pretending the whole time, but I just can't do it anymore. I'm sick of the songs." etc. etc.

    I hope the jury is told as soon as he leaves the court room and is in the room with the monitor he stops....

    duh................ what a ploy!!!!

    hang him up and give ALL involved closure!!!!

    Did'nt Adolf Hitler believe he was God? In a position of power, Mitchell would have been very dangerous. Our society has a need to recognize and handle these kind of people.

    Boy, he seems pretty good at faking crazy.
