For God's Sake...

One of the defendants in traffic court this morning was very entertaining.

She kept asking the officer accusatory questions, then when he gave an answer she didn't like, she asked him why he was lying. She asked these accusatory and inflammatory questions for a solid ten minutes before making her statement that she was being discriminated against, and the officer only stopped her because she was black.

After completing her statement, the judge asked her if she had anything further. She said "Just that Yaweh is my witness". The judge said "Pardon me?" Then she said "Yaweh is my witness. The King of Kings, the God of Gods..."

I looked upward toward heaven and said quietly to myself, "Oh God, please don't let her call you as a witness..."

I apparently didn't say it as quietly as I thought though, because the officer next to me stifled a guffaw...

Nice one - I've had much the same game, but haven't heard any of them ask God to testify on their behalf yet.

I wonder if the Big Man himself would ever say something like, 'Hey, you're only calling on me because I'm God ...'

When people are stupid like that I have a habit of pretending I am taking notes. I write down the first letter of all the words in a sentence like, You Are Such An Idiot I Want To Shake You. ect, ect All the letters are on top of each other so it's just a black mess on the page. Stress reliever.

Wouldn't want to cross-examine Yahweh.

At least you know he'd tell the truth!
