You’ve Heard of Bible Beaters, But This is Ridiculous

In Georgia, two soused Christians were having a theological argument. To no one’s surprise, it soon devolved into a violent farce.

Two residents of Cartersville may have not directly broken one of the Ten Commandments, but they did break the law when their fight over the sacred covenant turned violent.

According to police reports, Carolyn Unfricht and Daniel Camarda were inside a Cartersville hotel arguing about the Bible and specifically the Ten Commandments.

Unfricht told police things got heated when she hit him across the face with her Bible.

Rather than turning the other cheek, as the good book commands him to do,

Camarda retaliated by throwing her across the room.

The two are facing felony charges.
