Found this on Fox News....very disturbing! The fact that they quoted passages from the babble added to the shudder I felt when reading it!

HAYDEN, Idaho — A man who believed he bore the "mark of the beast" used a circular saw to cut off one hand, then he cooked it in the microwave and called 911, authorities said.

The man, in his mid-20s, was calm when Kootenai County sheriff's deputies arrived Saturday in this northern Idaho town. He was in protective custody in the mental health unit of Kootenai Medical Center.

"It had been somewhat cooked by the time the deputy arrived," sheriff's Capt. Ben Wolfinger said. "He put a tourniquet on his arm before, so he didn't bleed to death. That kind of mental illness is just sad."

It was not immediately clear whether the man has a history of mental illness. Hospital spokeswoman Lisa Johnson would not say whether an attempt was made to reattach the hand, citing patient confidentiality.

The Book of Revelation in the New Testament contains a passage in which an angel is quoted as saying: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink the wine of God's fury."

The book of Matthew also contains the passage: "And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to do into hell."

Well, if he replaces his hand with a chainsaw then he might be on to something... :)

Hello, somebody must have missed something, maybe he has a serious mental illness called religion!

Prote... no microwave and no mention of cooking the offending parts!

Poodles... yeah, religious Terminator, can be hired for smiting :-D

He could do the Edward Scissorshands route also. Do you suppose he microwaved it so they didn't Lorena Bobbit it and reattach the offending part?

There was a Little House on the Prairie episode where Ma's foot got infected and they showed her sitting in front of the fire reading her Bible (guess which verse???) and holding the butcher knife. The show then cut away to people finding her and Doc Olson saying she did the right thing by lancing it to remove the infection.

I loved Little House when I was a kid, but when I rewatch it as an adult, they were fucking PSYCHOTIC!!! Seriously, they were all barking mad and I'm horrified that no one noticed at the time or has said anything now. Probably because Michael Landon has become a sacred icon.
