Driving Away From the Wreck of the Day and I'm Thinking 'Bout Calling on Jesus*

Yesterday, here in my little comfy corner of the Midwest, a man entered his estranged** wife's place of employment, hit her over the head with a crow bar, and then held her hostage for several hours, in the process terrorizing innocent senior citizens and school children.

It was revealed in our paper this morning that one of the things he wanted assurances about (from his estranged wife) was...WAIT. Are you ready for this?

Are you ready?

Wait for it....

HE WANTED ASSURANCES THAT HIS CHILDREN WOULD BE TAKEN TO CHURCH REGULARLY.

What the heck???

Because Jesus wants you to hit your wife over the head with a metal bar and hold her hostage at gunpoint to get children to Sunday School?

That, is a very special kind of crazy, I think.

The mind boggles.

A very special kind of crazy, indeed.

I don't know what makes this sadder, that it happened, or that something similar just happened in one of my cases.

I love it!

PS - My dad had a client once who claimed he killed somebody because the devil made him do it. That's sort of similar, right?
