God is a Shitty Co-Pilot

From Dispatches from the Culture Wars:

We’ve all seen those bumper stickers that say “God is my co-pilot,” but this woman from Florida seems to have taken that a bit too seriously. After being pulled over and arrested for driving 100 mph while blowing her horn, she told the police that she was only doing what God commanded her to do:

A motorist who was blowing her horn and going 100 mph in a 30-mph zone on U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce at 1 a.m. Tuesday told officers God told her to do it.

Regardless, Melissa Miller, 41, of Port St. Lucie, was arrested on charges of reckless driving and speeding…

After she was stopped, an officer quoted her as saying she was speeding “because I was letting the Lord spirit guide me,” according to a police report. She attributed her lengthy horn blowing to “the Lord telling me to do it.”

Wonder if God will help her pay the ticket?
