When Wendell Merrick is killed in the church office on his wedding day, Detective Murdoch is on the case. He learns that Merrick was to be married to Eunice McGinty, a somewhat plain looking girls from Niagara Falls. Murdoch soon realizes that the wedding was a sham. The autopsy reveals that Merrick was a homosexual and that his marriage would allow him to inherit his half of his late father's estate. The obvious conclusion was that he was killed by his lover in a fit of jealously but when that man commits suicide, Murdoch believes that the crime has yet to be solved and he uncovers a far more elaborate plot with an altogether different motive.

Another episode to make fun of Christians
29 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This starts off with a man and woman going to church. The man is very mean to a person begging for money outside the church as he is walking.

There is a wedding going to take place and in this beautiful big church.

The people in the wedding are all set for this happy event the best man, the bride etc. Nobody seems to like each other.

The groom does not enter the church when he is supposed to and they go look for him. He is found dead. He is killed with the metal Cross of Jesus.

After this I stopped watching. 1. They portrayed the church goers as mean. 2. The church party did not like each other 3. The murder takes place in a church. 4. And to top it off the groom was killed with large metal cross. Murdoch holds up the Cross that supposed to be the weapon and says "seems like nothing is sacred these days. That is for sure especially in Murdoch Mysteries.

Once and a while if series portrayed religious people in a good way I would not be offended but this never happens. It seems many episode display religious people as the aggressor, the evil person the one who does not accept others because they are so "religious and so perfect". The episode with author of Sherlock Holmes talked about religion as cold and dead. Murdoch ends up thinking psychic stuff might be true. I hope people that love God will see through these lies and not get discouraged.

You will not see any loving Christians in this at least not yet. I have seen 7 of season 7 and 4 of season 1. Murdoch is a superficial Catholic and scenes of church people are bad. I do hope believers will watch these shows and comment on the shows biased content.
