Man blows up family dog because it had the devil inside it.

Here’s a weird story.

A father with children in the house who was preparing for “the Rapture”blew up his family’s Labrador Retriever because the devil was inside the dog, court documents showed.

Christopher Dillingham, 45, allegedly attached an explosive device to his dog and detonated it around 4 a.m. Sunday outside their home.

This isn’t what depresses me.  What depresses me is that there will be countless people who really believe a guy rose from the dead and walked on water who will think a guy saying the devil’s in a dog must be nuts.

Because a person rising from the dead is waaaaaaaaaaaay more plausible.
