God may indeed be the divine ruler of all creation. For now, police officers still make the rules on Florida's roads.

How else to explain why a Florida woman who claimed the Lord told her to drive 100 miles per hour through a 30-mph residential neighborhood was nonetheless arrested for reckless driving?

Residents reported a woman in a silver Toyota was racing down a residential street near U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce, Fla., on Nov. 20, and repeatedly honking her horn and frantically waving her arms and gesturing. Officers pursued her in a high-speed chase.

When Melissa Miller, 41, finally pulled over, she told officers that "I was letting the Lord spirit guide me," according to a police report of the incident. She said repeatedly honked loudly because "The Lord was telling me to do it."

      The Lord works in strange ways. Perhaps He needed to summon this woman to his busom. Pedal to the metal, my child.

      Is it really any wonder why religion is a thing to be avoided? These people who say "God told me to do it", or "Jesus spoke to me and said...", or even "The devil made me do it" are all simply clinically insane, biologically unbalanced, bi polar, schizo retards.......or have but a small shriveled portion of their brain left from booze, drugs, Twinkies, whatever.....nothing but a raisin left up there. You'd think for God's own reputation this might be at least ONE of the many cockamamie things he'd intervene on that give him such the bad rap.

        Okay - That is one side of it. On the other, and for instance - my very religious Jesus oriented friend went to college and got a PhD in chemistry. He believed being a chemist was part of God's will for his life. ( and he would have been the kind of person most folks would be entirely annoyed with on the evening drive home from work because he would be driving the speed limit.) Regardless, he did original work in chemistry and was able to achieve a unique bond formation in a compound thereby producing a useful product that didn't exist before his work. He later went on to help set a college level organic chemistry program in a third world country - I'm sure part of his motivation was his love for God and his desire to serve Him. He also took part in establishing a campus church. He's got, last time I checked, quite a few patents, but he probably thinks the work he did for people less fortunate than him, and the little fellowship he helped to establish were more important than all his other work put together. The guy had more integrity than 95% of the people I knew at the time, or know know - including that of most of the college students I knew, including myself. These are the quiet sorts of things you don't see in the media very often. It doesn't fit a certain narrative about having faith in God. In my opinion, the above story fits a stereotype that most people prefer. If you'd care to verify check here: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/mark-bowman/13/854/139 God's reputation is doing just fine if you know where to look and take time to see.

        ...and then, as soon as she was sleeping, the cops took her from the bed.

      God told her to drive that fast but the judge is going to tell her what to do now. She looks like the devil's wife. She needs a good slapping.
