Some people deserve the Darwin Award. Here’s a quick story from Florida where a 28-year old woman drove her car into a house because, get this, she had her eyes closed and was praying at the time. The unnamed woman entirely missed a stop sign, drove through the intersection and plowed into a house. She then tried to escape but her car got stuck in the sand and she was unable to flee. She was arrested and charged with reckless driving with property damage. Luckily, no one was injured.
She should have been bound over for psychiatric evaluation.
Seriously, what the hell is wrong with these people? Oh right, they believe absurd things! It would be one thing if she lost control of her car and slammed into a house, but she had her eyes closed and was talking to herself. She needs to lose her license because not only did she cause damage to someone’s house, she could have killed someone. I’m sure this is not the first time this delusional idiot tried this little stunt. Some people are not mentally competent enough to operate a motor vehicle.
I wish I could say this was a one-off, but it isn’t. There’s another case where a 63-year old woman in Ohio drove into a 50-year old woman and broke her neck because she was praying while driving. Marilyn Perry told police that she had been praying over personal problems. Police initially thought she was either on a cell phone or inebriated, but they could find no drug that influenced her driving.
Yes there was. Religion. Religion is a drug.
She was charged $10,000 in restitution to the victim, plus required to attend a substance abuse program. Hopefully they can wean her off of her idiotic beliefs. I wouldn’t hold my breath though, because the one legal drug that we have, religion, always gets a pass. But what else is new on Horror Show Sunday?
