Silly, Harmless Beliefs – A Continuing Series, Part 1034

Fresh from the “New Reasons to Type with One Hand” Department:

HAYDEN, Idaho (AP) — A man who believed he bore the biblical “mark of the beast” used a circular saw to cut off one hand, then he cooked it in the microwave and called 911, authorities said.

The man, in his mid-20s, was calm when Kootenai County sheriff’s deputies arrived Saturday. He was in protective custody in the mental health unit of Kootenai Medical Center.

“It had been somewhat cooked by the time the deputy arrived,” sheriff’s Capt. Ben Wolfinger said. “He put a tourniquet on his arm before, so he didn’t bleed to death. That kind of mental illness is just sad.”

Just remember: modern Christians believe the Bible is the true word of God, until someone has the audacity to claim it’s about them specifically. Then it’s “mental illness.”

Oh ye of little faith!
