Man Crushed By Falling Crucifix
You can't make this stuff up

"David Jimenez believed his devotion to a crucifix was responsible for his wife being cured of cancer. Well, the crucifix fell on him, crushing one of his legs."

"OK Dave, I'll cure your wife, but it will cost you a leg", God.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

RE: Man Crushed By Falling Crucifix
Nice find.

And nice line in the article....

"Jimenez, who believes in the power of prayer, is now praying for a judgment, not from a higher authority, but from a civil court."

At least the victim saw the irony... so credit for that.

"Beats the arm and a leg that the hospital will charge me, seeing that I can't afford insurance on a pizza guy's salary."

"Oh, they'll charge you that too, for the amputation."

"Oh. At least I've got an arm."

"You're suing the church, right? The lawyers will take that."

"The lawyers charge less than the health care industry?"

"Only because they didn't get to you first. I'm surprised, they're used to racing ambulances."

"You SUCK, God!"

"Hey, look at the bright side! At least now you can't be crucified."

"I JUST WAS!"

And if they can't help, then you call THE BISHOP.

It's an omen. The crucifix fell from the church steeple, and killed the guy in Omen I. The AntiJeebus is amongst us. Be very afraid.

Huh?

We already knew you were here!

p.s. "the guy in Omen I" was the best Dr Who IMO and it was a lightning rod not a crucifix.

I quite agree. Sorry Eric, but it's a Michael Song just like Strawberry Fields is a John Song.
