God made me do it
We told you last week about the man who ripped his eyes out during a mass, because God told him to do so. At the end of last week a French secondary school maths teacher set herself alight in the playground. When alarmed students rushed to put the flames out, she cried “No, God told me to do it”. Unfortunately, despite being airlifted to a hospital in Montpellier, she later died. Selena Gomez is the latest victim of God’s whispers. She has taken out a restraining order against a stalker, Thomas Brodnicki, who claims he is going to kill her after talking to God. He was picked up last month after allegedly threatening to scratch people’s eyes out. Not surprisingly he has a history of mental illness. At least when God talks to me, He does it in a dream and I always tell Him that I don’t believe in Him. If you hear voices telling you to do bad stuff, then don’t listen. It tends to end up badly.
