Normalmente eu não comento notícias aqui, mas esta não dava para passar em branco.
Na semana passada, após sair do cinema onde foram assistir “The Passion of Christ“, um casal do estado da Georgia começou a discutir entre eles se “o Pai” da Trindade era humano ou simbólico. Chegando em casa, a discussão esquentou, os ânimos se exaltaram e… o resultado foi que os dois saíram na porrada, com direito a socos, estocada com tesoura e tudo.
Os dois chamaram a polícia um no outro, ambos foram presos, acusados de assalto e posteriormente liberados depois de pagar US$1000 de fiança cada um.
Como eu sempre digo, nada como a inspiração religiosa para trazer o melhor das pessoas à tona…

Couple arrested after ‘Passion’ fight

STATESBORO, Georgia (AP) — A couple who got into a dispute over a theological point after watching “The Passion of the Christ” were arrested after the argument turned violent.
The two left the movie theater debating whether God the Father in the Holy Trinity was human or symbolic, and the argument heated up when they got home, Melissa Davidson said.
“It was the dumbest thing we’ve ever done,” she said.
Davidson, 34, and her husband, Sean Davidson, 33, were charged with simple battery on March 11 after the two called police on each other. They were released on $1,000 bail.
According to a police report, Melissa Davidson suffered injuries on her arm and face, while her husband had a scissors stab wound on his hand and his shirt was ripped off. He also allegedly punched a hole in a wall.
“Really, it was kind of a pitiful thing, to go to a movie like that and fight about it. I think they missed the point,” said Gene McDaniel, chief sheriff’s deputy.
