Actress Felicia Lee was murdered in Monrovia, CA on September 11, 2009

what do you get when you cross christian fundamentalism, reality television, and porn? murder.

reports of an odd murder in monrovia, ca (near pasadena) tell of a moody bible institute grad, who received a seminary degree from southwestern baptist theological seminary, suffocated and killed his porn star girlfriend on september 11, 2009.

Brian Lee Randone is accused of beating and suffocating 31-year-old Felicia Lee, who had a role in the movie “Rush Hour 2″ as well as several adult films.

apparently randone, the part-time preacher and ‘christian mime,’ who had appeared on fox’s america’s sexiest bachelor killed his girlfriend, lee (whose stage name was ‘felicia tang,’ and who had appeared rush hour 2, the fast and the furious, as well as the adult film asian fever, among others.

Randone graduated from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and has a Master’s of Divinity degree from Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune said.

look, i have my issues with christian fundamentalism. but they don’t teach people to kill. nevertheless, this is murder (at least not moody and swbts). it’s bad for everyone involved. and regardless of what you think of reality television, action films, or porn, no one deserves to die. i’ll be curious to watch as the details about this case come to light.

  1. Agreed. This isn’t Christian fundamentalism. Now, Rob Grant and Jerry Falwell disciples isn’t my cup of theological tea, but this closer to the terrorist acts of the KKK than anything else.

    And he was a mime. I don’t trust them in Central Park, I don’t trust them in on the NYC trains, and I certainly don’t trust Christian mimes. In any case, it brings new meaning to “reading between the lines”… ha!

  2. Tangential, but perhaps interesting as MBI/crime related: In the twenty two years I was librarian at the Oriental Institute there was only one theft of a wallet/purse. Nothing in it ever turned up except for a $50 travelers check, which someone tried to use to buy books at the Moody Bible Institute bookstore. They refused to take it when the signatures didn’t match, called the cops, and the perp. fled.

  3. Thanks, this was really a great read. So when is your next post coming? I can’t wait :)

  4. Truly, fundamentalist Christianity doesn’t teach people to kill, but some fundamentalist Christians do; orthodox Hinduism doesn’t teach people to kill, yet Gandhi was killed by a fellow orthodox Hindu; orthodox Islam doesn’t teach people to kill, yet orthodox and fundamentalist Muslims kill.

    Shakespeare said “Even the Devil can quote Scripture to his purpose”. Whether Christian, Hindu or Muslim, these people are quoting their scriptures and finding loopholes (they think) to justify their killing. Sad, sad, sad.
