The Lord Giveth, Dodgeball Taketh Away

A youth minister was charged with assault for allegedly knocking down a 16 year old boy and kicking him in the groin after the kid beaned him in the head during a dodgeball game.

The kid apparently knocked the glasses off the 27 year old man of God. However, when the boy apologized, instead of turning the other cheek, Mr. Love Thy Neighbor pushed the kid down and, when he got up again, kicked him in his Buckeyes.

The poor teen suffered whiplash, post-concussion syndrome and blood in his urine from the kick.

Prosecutors say the minister later apologized. We can only hope the kid reacted with the same "grace" as he was subjected to when he tried to apologize.

Hopefully, CapBuck can provide us with a theological explanation for the youth pastor's reaction.

I'm not really sure why the kid apologized, isn't hitting your apponents the whole point of dodgeball? Scoring a headshot that also sends the glasses flying is a cause for some Terrel Owens like celebration.

And, I would have thought the only really acceptable response to getting beaned in the head by an opponent was, "hey man, nice shot."

maybe we need to start wearing cups when playing dodgeball now...

As promised, a thorough and complete theological analysis of the minster's actions.


Any questions? Good, lets roll then. Kickball anyone?

LOL, Cap!

LOL! I knew you'd have an answer for us CapBuck.

This incident reminds me of The Onion article, "All Seven Deadly Sins Committed At Church Bake Sale" here: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/28001

If you want more good-natured bashing of bad theology, check out www.larknews.com. Be sure to look at the 'visually-impaired version.'

CapBuck, that place is hilarious.

I especially liked the "You Suck which is why you need Jesus" Baby Doll T's.

My favorite T-shirt they have right now is the "I love cheeses." It took me about 10 minutes to get it...

Also-if you read an individual article, at the top of the article there is a link for 'reading impaired.' Turn your speakers on and click that link, I bet a dollar it'll make you smile.
