Thou Shalt Not Flip Off The Lord's Anointed OR ELSE!!!

Postby urroner » Thu Aug 30, 2012 10:08 am

Instant karma is sometimes interesting, especially when one is driving at twice the legal limit,

http://www.thedepauw.com/news/driver-who-flipped-car-on-s-locust-street-pleads-guilty-sentenced-to-day-in-prison-1.2886617#.UD4o7mt9bnj

The car was driving northbound when it reportedly crashed around 8:40 p.m. Scott Brezenski and Myles Anderton, two missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said that the driver crashed while he raised his middle finger towards them while they walked past.

The right side of the car hit the curb then ramped up the support of a telephone pole in front of the Studebaker Memorial Administration Building, launching the car into the air, they said.

The car spun and landed on its top about 20 feet away from the pole in front of Sigma Chi, Brezenski and Anderton said.

“We were just walking, and he looked back and flipped us off,” Brezenski said, adding the driver was carrying a cigarette in the hand he used to make the gesture. “Then the car flipped 10 to 12 feet in the air.”
Where the hell am I going and why am I in this handbasket?

This story reminds me of another example from the scriptures that teaches us not to mock the Lord's chosen...

2nd Kings, 2:23-24
23 ¶And he went up from thence unto Beth-el: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children* out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.

24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

*It should be noted that in the footnotes it indicates that these are youths, not children, so probably about the same age as the guy driving the car.

Classic.
When you die, if you go somewhere where they ask you a bunch of questions about your life and what you learned and all, I think a good way to get out of it is just to say, "No habla ingles." ~ Jack Handey
