Another act of god

Woman hit by lightning while praying

Worried about the safety of her family during a stormy Memorial Day trip to the beach, Clara Jean Brown stood in her kitchen and prayed for their safe return as a strong thunderstorm raged through Baldwin County.

Suddenly, lightning exploded, blowing through the linoleum and leaving a pockmarked area on the concrete. Brown wound up on the floor, dazed and disoriented by the blast but otherwise uninjured.

"I said, 'Amen,' and the room was engulfed in a huge ball of fire," she said. "I'm blessed to be alive."

Look, the only reason she got hit is because she was praying to the wrong deity. And so He zapped her to teach her a lesson. Lucky for her He remembered the real god must show not only justice but also mercy, else He would've turned her to cinders with her soul burning eternally in hell.

"Never in my life did I think something like this could happen," James Brown told the Press-Register. "I always thought if you're in a house that you're safe. That's not the case."

Who said you can hide from the all-seeing god?

Moral of the story: Make sure you pray to the real McCoy. And who is he? Thor.
