The Devil or the Pastor

Saying for the Day: The Devil did it.

The poor devil doesn’t have enough bad press but now he has been accused of taking the form of a Pastor and beating Sherri Lynn Rossi, a pastor’s wife, over the head with a blunt object until she went into a coma.
When the poor woman came out of the coma she accused her husband, Pastor Richard A. Rossi Jr., of beating her.
The husband argued that it must have been Satan pretending to be him in order to ruin his ministry.
The woman then recanted her story saying she agrees it must have been Satan because her husband would never do anything like that.
I don’t believe the devil did it. He doesn’t need to take an active part in that kind of activity since he has enough crazy humans to do it for him.
But let’s just say for a moment he did.
Where does the poor police man go to arrest him?
Where does Satan hang out?
Do you interview his close friends?
If you find him can you keep him in a cell?
Don’t some of the best lawyers work for him?
Do you have to trick him into looking like the Pastor?
How do we know the pastor isn’t dead and Satan has replaced him?
Of what value would fingerprints or DNA be?
Will this lead to a new defense? Not Satan made me do it but Satan did it?
I think the police should just give up and arrest the Pastor because most of the time it‘s the husband. What do you think?

News from Pigeon Falls. The official town song is entitled "Pigeons Return" is always sung at the start of the great Pigeon Festival, and goes as follows:
When the Pigeons return to Pigeon falls- coo coo coo
And we hear them cooing in the wood-coo coo coo
Then the trains will run on time-coo coo coo
Things will be the way they should-coo coo coo
When the Pigeons return to Pigeon Falls-coo coo coo
And we hear them cooing in the wood-coo coo coo
People will be singing in the streets-coo coo coo
And all the crops will grow so good- coo coo coo
When the pigeons return to Pigeon Falls- coo coo coo
Then love again will fill the land- coo coo coo
With pigeons cooing in the wood- coo coo coo
We will all walk hand in hand.- coo coo coo

Betty went to do altar committee at the church. I transfered the blog explosion credits she won to MIMI. I am packing up the jelly beans for Kristi and the last of the prizes from the loser's party will have been taken care of. We worked most of the day on the Pigeon Falls layout. The town is now in place. Some of the people have been added. It looks pretty good. Tomorrow if it doesn't rain we'll try running the train. We want all of this done by the end of May so we can start on the other end of the layout. Well I need a breathing treatment.

What a song, coo coo coo, LOL!

I can't believe people still try that satan defense. Satan must be kicking back relaxing with a beer in front of the tv. Because he doesn't have to do no work. Plenty of people are doing it and he is getting the credit.

Wow, first off, the poor woman for taking a beating like that!! But it is amazing that the husband who is a pastor is convinced that Satan made him do it. Maybe she ought to come back and wail on him a time or two and tell him that she is Satan!! The lengths that some people will go to for lying!

I really liked the song, I think it is neat that your town has a song in the first place. I have no idea the history of where I am living now. I do know that the next town over is the second oldest in the US.

Oh, my! That's one pastor's wife who's never seen The Oprah Show. Gullible and ingnorant -- a disastrous combination.

After working in the mental health sector,Ive lost count of the number of ppl who have said that God made them do *it*..voices and all that.
So..blame satan..well,it saves the pastor from accepting that he did it,but as for his wife.OH..I mean,shes just stupid!

I would love to be on the jury just to hear what the other jurors would say.

I've somehow been too busy to get onto the internet for a few days ... had to catch up on your last few entries.

Is that a true story about Pigeon Falls ... or the history of YOUR Pigeon Falls?
ALSO ... what a scary thought about the minister's wife ... no excuse for that ... BUT ... "Vengeance is Mine, saith the Lord".

I didn't hear about this news story but it sounds pretty dreadful. I often wondered why we don't take responsiblity for our own mistakes...Not only do we do the initial sin but even after there are often numerous times to repent and try to be better and still nothing....
