Women Foil Robber by Chanting “Jesus”

See there? Who needs guns when you can scare off the bad guys just by chanting the word, “Jesus?”

Seriously, these women may be a little loopy, but you’ve got to give them props for bravery.

Kind of reminds me of that scene in “The Apostle” when they stop the bad guy from bulldozing their church with a Bible.

Side note: the same robber tried to mug a 62-year-old woman at an ATM a little while later, and she scared him off by yelling too. Just not about Jesus.

    I had a similar situation happen to me. Some Jehovia’s Witnesses came to my door and I yelled, “FAWK JESUS! FAWK JESUS! FAWK JESUS!”, and they ran like the wind.

    We could use more people in this world who actually believe Jesus can still, you know, do things.
