Know them by their actions: Preacher goes on a road rage.

Say someone cuts you off in traffic. What would Jesus do? Probably not this:

A 71-year-old Cincinnati preacher has been convicted of aggravated menacing, after another motorist said he waved a gun and cursed at her. Thomas Howell could get up to six months in jail on the misdemeanor charge when he’s sentenced Sept. 4.

Howell says he was on his way to First Commandment Church of the Living God in the East Walnut Hills neighborhood when April Evans cut him off on June 23. During Monday’s trial, Howell testified that he has a gun and permit but denied ever removing the weapon from its holster.

But a Hamilton County municipal court judge sided with Evans, who said the preacher threatened to shoot her and called her names as their cars chased each other.

So much for turning the other cheek.

  1. Who knows which cheek the pastor would have waived out the window? Not an appealing graphic!  snake

  2. You know that almost all christians are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites right. They cherry pick the hell out of the bible.

  3. I will say that it doesn’t do the image of Islam any favors to have the Muslim woman react in the manner she did – religion of peace and love my ass

    This was my point on the earlier thread. Here the pastor is criticised as not upholding his religeon, where the woman is used as an exemplar of Islam.

    Not totally your fault, culture beat intelligence.

  4. To bad he probably won’t get any of that jail time and since it is only a misdemeanor he wil even get to keep his gun !!

  5. Say someone cuts you off in traffic. What would Jesus do? Probably not this:

    He probably would actually. Remember the hissy fit he threw about the fig tree? and his violent reaction to the money changers?

    I think violent christians are actually being true to their religion. It’s founder was an unstable violent rabble-rouser after all.
