My God is Also Crazier Than Your God

truckLike we needed another example of why fervent belief in any religion should not be encouraged but rather listed in the DSM IV as a major mental problem:

A man who rammed his truck into a woman’s vehicle on a highway early Friday told authorities he crashed into her while going more than 100 mph because God told him “she needed to be taken off the road.”

That’s nice. If he was such a swell supreme being as all his followers here on earth like to claim, you’d think God would stick to whispering sweet nothings and words of encouragement in people’s ears. This stuff sounds more like the psychotic boyfriend who eggs you on to drop acid and then makes you jump off the roof.
