Car Crashes Into Fla. Church On Easter, Injures 21


An Easter celebration at a church in Fort Myers, Fla., ended with a bang Sunday when a car lost control and smashed through the building, knocking over pews and trapping churchgoers.

The accident left a gaping hole in the front of Second Haitian Baptist Church. A woman was turning into a parking space at the church when the accident happened, according to WINK. The car burst through the packed church and pinned parishioners attending services underneath the vehicle. Church members used jacks from their own cars to lift the vehicle up and rescue those trapped underneath.

No one was so seriously injured that they required surgery, but 18 people were admitted to area hospitals. There were so many injuries that the county was worried emergency services were going to be overwhelmed.

      there should be one major question that the DMV poses to anyone wanting a license and that is, "ARE YOU AN IDIOT?" Just a couple of hours ago I'm heading east in Tucson, come up on a major intersection and the light turns GREEN might you, that's GREEN. A car coming from the righ more than 20 feet FROM the intersection barrells right through. I'm guessing the main reason no one was in the intersection is because people are becoming so afraid to even move for a good 20-30 seconds until they feel it's safe, and this is ridiculous. First I went on east and then that "THIS REALLY PISSES ME OFF" feeling hit me and I whipped my bike around in the middle of the street and took off after the vehicle. I saw it turn down a side street and fortunately the street was a dead end so while the van was trying to turn around I pulled up and blocked it. "Oh Warren, aren't you afraid of getting shot or something?" Listen but I'm in one of those moods, I don't give a rats ass what happens, I'm sick and tired of selfish, thoughtless, inconsiderate, foolish, dangerous, irresponsible people. Ends up being a woman about 51 or 52, she gets out and she's got a cell phone IN HER HAND. I said, "you were talking or texting on that damn phone weren't you?" and she swore she was not BUT, you just do not drive through a redlight like that if you are not preoccupied and you stupid ass people are killing innocent people. I hope there will be MORE people like my in your face because again, I'm tired of you. What you don't want to do is to justify your actions when you're wrong like that, NOT if you want to find all your windows still in tact in your vehicle tomorrow. Actually I think the problem here could be helped tremendously IF Circle K would be prevented from giving you jerks a license just for buying a Suitcase of Bud Lite, here in lies the problem and your inability to drive needs to be more closely controlled.

      Unlike many others, I am sad this happened. I am a practicing Christian and I belong to a metaphysical church where we promote inclusivity for all individuals. We do not promote hellfire and brimstone and fear of God but we will celebrate diversity. We believe God gave all of us free will to succeed or fail as we will. In other words, all of us are responsible for our behavior not God. God is not responsible for the weather. We did that all by ourselves. Both sides continually "USE" God.

        Metaphysical church? hmmm, is that something like the LIberal training that is given to children these days, Ritalin and time outs are administered when children misbehave and in return an unruly, disobient, disrespectful, child is created who NEVER knew disicpline? I heard a guy say not too long ago, "Oh our pastor loves us and would NEVER criticze or put us down", YEA buddy, and your pastor doesn't care anything about you if that's his approach as a Sheperd. You'll apparently find that out wayyyyyy toooooooooooo late.

        Job 28:25-27 Verse Concepts "When He imparted weight to the wind And meted out the waters by measure, When He set a limit for the rain And a course for the thunderbolt, Then He saw it and declared it; He established it and also searched it out Mark 4:39-41 Verse Concepts And He got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, "Hush, be still." And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. And He said to them, "Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?" They became very much afraid and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?" Luke 8:24-25 Verse Concepts They came to Jesus and woke Him up, saying, "Master, Master, we are perishing!" And He got up and rebuked the wind and the surging waves, and they stopped, and it became calm. And He said to them, "Where is your faith?" They were fearful and amazed, saying to one another, "Who then is this, that He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?" Job 5:10 Verse Concepts "He gives rain on the earth And sends water on the fields, Psalms 135:7 Verse Concepts He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; Who makes lightnings for the rain, Who brings forth the wind from His treasuries. Jeremiah 10:13 Verse Concepts When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain, And brings out the wind from His storehouses. According to your bible gawd is responsible for the weather, so tell me, do they teach you the bible at your church or are you like most KKKristians and just make up your definition of gawd and cherry pick parts of the bible to support your sky wizard myth?

        Then you don't belong to a 'church' in the true sense of the word... you belong to a social club..

        I'm guessing then that you do not believe in the bible. Do you even believe the words Jesus spoke???
