Listening to God

Headline: "Man says God ordered him to ram vehicle at 100 mph"

The story: Down in good ole San Antonio Texas a man driving a pickup truck (what else, it's Texas...) rammed a woman driver from behind while he was going an estimated 100 miles an hour because god told him that she needed to be taken off the road.

Okay, so when this guy comes up for trial (if he does -- he's been referred, and rightly so, to psychiatric counseling), what are the chances that the Radical Christianists are going to come to his defense, and accuse the state of Texas of declaring war on those who hear directly from god?

Actually, now that I think about it, it would be an interesting hearing. But I've got a sneaking suspicion that those who "really" hear directly from god's lips are going to stay completely away from this babbling lunatic.

After all, if everyone could hear the law directly from god, it would be bad for business. Where would all those tax-exempt contributions to the fundo churches come from if people could actually get the real deal from god him/herself?
