The short version of the story: A man drove over 100 mph and rammed into the back of a woman’s car because he thought God wanted him to “take the other car off the road.” Thankfully, both drivers are ok.
There was another aspect to the story that really caught my attention, though.
There are two mentions of God in the article.
In one, God is non-existent and malicious, and because the driver believed in Him, he is undergoing psychiatric evaluations.
In the other — just two paragraphs later — God was actually helping both drivers. The sheriff who believes in this God is seen as perfectly normal.
“He just said God said she wasn’t driving right, and she needed to be taken off the road,” said Lt. Kyle Coleman of the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.
“God must have been with them, ’cause any other time, the severity of this crash, it would have been a fatal,” Coleman said.
Someone please tell me why one of these Gods is supposed to be believable while the other is seen as ridiculous.
