Jury Rules Bus Driver Not Guilty after Prayer

A Texas bus driver accused of manslaughter was acquitted by a local jury on Thursday after the members had stopped to pray to God for guidance.
Jerry Cook, former bus driver for Pasadena Independent School District, was brought up on the charges, initially for murder, after he had accidentally run over a 9-year-old girl, Ruth Young, just outside Houston.
"God led us to make the right decision," juror Cedric Kissam said after the verdict, according to the Houston Chronicle. "It was an accident. It wasn't reckless driving."

What will happen the day a jury hears from God that someone is guilty? When there are 12 angry christians?

[Porn] Destruction Stories

5/18/6 "I am writing to tell people how bad porn is. Porn destroys your relationship with God. There are so many times I have looked at porn and I would come to God to ask for forgiveness and then turn around again and look at porn again. One night, I got so into porn that my mind did not care if I went to Hell or anything else. So, I beg you, do your best to do Christ's will. Satan knows pornography is your weakness, if you look at porn. He will use it against you. I pray that you read your bible and pray to God when Satan tempts you. Jesus loves you!"

A page with amusing stories of Christians struggling with porn!

People who are atheists suffer from a lack of intelligence

"People who are atheists suffer from a lack of intelligence. Religionists believe that a Creation demands a Creator. My temple office is in the Back Bay. If any person would find a $1,000 watch there, it would dictate that there was a designer and a craftsman who could make such a watch. Common reason illustrates that someone had to leave the watch there. So it is the case with the universe.

Religion solves the question of what came first, the chicken or the egg? The obvious answer is the chicken, because God created all its creatures. Many people mistakenly abandon religion because the world is billions of years old. You don't have to accept the entire Bible to believe in God.

Those people who don't believe in God have little meaning in life. Without a God, there is no morality or sense of social justice. What basis for these two principles would you follow? A sense of religion anchors you and gives you meaning. When something goes wrong with your life, you have something to fall back on. If one accepts that there is a God, then there are only two dilemmas in life: the problem of evil and pain. These are tough questions to answer. However, without a God or sense of religion, tougher questions arise — like a purpose in life. To the atheist, life is simply an accident without any purpose. If there is no God, then one must answer all the other questions that life poses."

Rabbi Marc Rubenstein Daily Pilot, Jun 01, 2007
Quite unintelligent views.
1. A creation does not a creator yes, but if it's not a creation it does not need a creator! The clock has a note saying "Made in Switzerland". There is no such thing on the earth, nor anything else pointing towards it being a creation so the faulty.
2. Evolution solves the chicken and egg question, because a pre-chicken animal laid eggs that gradually turned into chickens. (I know this is hard to understand for many religious people)
3. Morality is evolutionary. Religions are just one way to explain and build upon our biological morals, and a very old and faulty one too. See: If It Feels Good to Be Good, It Might Be Only Natural

Wife urged man to die for jihad, court told

"A young wife urged her husband to die waging jihad, and offered herself and her baby son as martyrs, a court heard yesterday.


The letter which the court heard was written by Ms El Hor to her husband stated: "The moment has come that you and I have to separate for the sake of Allah.
"I am happy that Allah has granted you the chance to be a martyr ... I wish I could go with you because I too feel obligated.
"Maybe one day I can follow you. If I can't, I will send our son to you so he can follow his father's footsteps."

Letter from Kent Hovind (Ax) to Jesus (Woodsman)

"Dear Woodsman,
Why have you done this? We were doing so well felling tress for the Master's house and you quit chopping with me in the middle of cutting that big oak. Why? I was doing my best. I never flew off the handle. I cut as deep as I could every swing. What did I do wrong?
Why do you have me clamped in this vice? I can't move! I can't chop wood here. I was designed for chopping wood. I love it! Please don't leave me clamped in this vice. I feel pressure on my sides that I've never felt before. I can handle the pressure on my cutting edge. Go ahead. Chop with me all day long. I can take it. Actually, I love it!
Now what? No! Wait! Why are you grinding and filing off part of me? Why would you take away pieces of the most effective part of me—my cutting edge?
Woodsman, the Master needs the trees cut! This delay is holding up the job we were doing for Him! Please stop grinding on me and get me out of this vice. I want to go back to work. I love cutting wood. Ouch! You are hurting me!
Woodsman, are you listening to me? Do you know what you are doing?
The Ax"

Apparently not a joke.

This reminds me of a infamous slogan for the deodorant Axe (in Norway at least). Jesus doesn't use it anymore.
Ax: Don't use it, if you don't mean it!
