North Carolina Woman Arrested for Disrupting Funeral and Assaulting Deceased

090304111945_funeral-womanThis one is a bit hard to fit into the usual charge sheet. Nicole Marie Loretta Leonard, 25, showed up at the funeral of a stranger in North Carolina, danced in front of the family, waved a wand around the casket, opened the casket, and hit the deceased with the wand. Before running from the funeral, she threw flowers from the casket over the shocked family.

Leonard fled in her car only to be intercepted by police, who report that she simply explained that “it was the right thing to do at the time.”

She has been charged with disturbing a funeral and public disorderly conduct.

    I watched a show about the big bang last night and they actually speculate that light was created prior to all the stars and planets and other matter.

  2. Buddah:
    yeah thats the picture that went along with the story,I’ll pass that sight on.

  3. What I want to know is, were people from this blog going over to OneNewsNow to argue about creationism? They had an unusually heated debate, (hell, they had a debate) on this topic–I suspect some of you.

    “OneNewsNow recently published an article dealing with the Vatican debate on evolution — an article that prompted a heated debate in the “reader comments” section. OneNewsNow decided to give Dr. Terry Mortenson of Answers in Genesis, whose comments appeared in the original article, a chance to respond to readers.”

    Comment {by evildoer}: Genesis can’t even give a coherent account of Creation — we get two different stories just in the first two chapters. Not to mention oddities like ‘light’ being created several days before the sun, moon, and stars. Yet you want to take this as inviolate fact? And you think evolution is a total fantasy? Right.

    Mortenson {man of god}: We need to be very careful to pay attention to details of Genesis 1 and 2. They are not two contradictory accounts of creation. Genesis 1 is what I like to call a wide-angle-lens view of the whole six days of creation. Genesis 2, from verse 4 onward, is a telephoto zoom lens looking at some of the events of Day 6. They are not contradictory. Genesis 2 does not say anything about the creation of the earth, the creation of the sun, moon, and stars, the creation of sea creatures; they’re just not parallel accounts — and people who say that just are not reading the text carefully.

    Secondly, as far as the sunlight being created before the sun, when people raise that objection I’m sure they’re well meaning, but they’re really reasoning like an atheist because behind that question is the assumption that God cannot produce the phenomenon of light without the sun. But of course the Bible makes it very clear that God can do that. He blinded Saul on the road to Damascus in the middle of the day. It wasn’t the sun; it was another source of light and Paul tells us later on that he saw the risen Christ.

    In the book of Revelation it says in the new heaven and the new earth there will be no more night; but there will be no sun either — and God will be our light. Genesis 1, I don’t believe the light in verse 3 is God because it is a created thing. He said let there be light and there was light. But it’s some kind of light source to create the phenomenon of an evening and a morning, and then on the fourth day that light was either removed and replaced by the sun, moon, and stars or somehow distributed — we don’t know. But the fact that we don’t know or fully understand everything that we would like to know doesn’t mean that the text is vague or not telling us the truth. The text is very clear that God defines what a day is in verse 5, and then he calls them second day, third day, fourth day and the Fourth Commandment in Exodus 20 God says you work six days because I created in six days.”
