Another religious nut puts her children in danger
Quote:Moments before steering her minivan directly into a palm tree, police in Florida allege a 36-year-old woman instructed her four children to unbuckle their seat belts and stretch their arms out before them.

According to WKMG, one of Calicia Williams’ children told police in the ambulance en route to the hospital Wednesday her mother yelled out, “Lord Jesus, save me!” as the vehicle slammed into the tree.

The Ocala Times reports the child allegedly told cops that, immediately afterwards, Williams told them, “The devil can’t hurt you, he only hurts bad people. You have the light of Jesus in you and only Jesus can cure us.”

In this case, Dawkins would be right; this is child abuse and endangerment.

Looking forward to the indictment.

Waiting for screaming that religion isn't to blame for this. Won't take long is my guess.
The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

She'll face 4 charges of second-degree attempted murder, which could be up to 15 years per charge.
I'm guessing her defence will raise all sorts of mitigating circumstances though, particularly the fact
that she's got four young kids, and that she was acting under the influence of a voodoo hex put on
her by her husband, or even that she's part of the black minority being persecuted by the police who
arrested her.   All the usual bullshit.

Even if she beats the rap, it's obvious that her kids have to be taken away from her. The father, no doubt, is not a fit guardian either.

Well, we have been told that the police voodoo witch doctor Nazguls are out of control.

Mental illness is to blame for the fire; religion is, as usual, the accelerant.

And not an ounce of sympathy for the poor, unfortunate palm tree.

What are we coming to?
Being told you're delusional does not necessarily mean you're mental.

Maybe the mother thought it was a "psalm" tree?      Whistling

I know the usual spiel:

-she was not a true christian.

-she fell for satan

-help, we are being persecuted.
