The wackiness continues…

You know, I’ve never had much desire to turn this blog into one of those “wacky news” blogs where people report on embarrassing or hideous news stories. That said, it seems like there’s been a run of them lately and I might as well go with it. For instance: Texas pastor fatally beaten with electric guitar in church attack

The congregation at a Fort Worth-area church is reeling after a bizarre attack on Monday that left their longtime minister fatally wounded. Police say a 33-year-old man identified as Derrick Birdow drove his car into the Greater Sweethome Missionary Baptist Church and went on a rampage inside, breaking a janitor’s jaw before beating the Rev. Danny Kirk Sr. to death with an electric guitar. The Dallas Morning news reports Birdow was still attacking Kirk when the police arrived; he was hit with a Taser and taken in a squad car. Birdow was later found dead inside the car. Over 100 people later met at the church to mourn the loss of Kirk. “He was my shepherd,” church member Pamela Thomas said. “[He was] my leader, a true man of God.”

Well, the church has always been an enemy of rock ‘n roll.
