Rendering Unto To Caesar: Man Sought After Running Out on Payment for a “Only God Can Judge Me” Tattoo

200px-Last_judgementPolice in Denton, Texas are searching for a man with a usual piece of identifying information: a tattoo reading “Only God Can Judge Me.” It was indeed the tattoo that is the cause for the arrest warrant: the man took the meaning to heart and ran from the parlor without paying for the tattoo.

It may be due to the limitations of space on his arm, but the bible makes clear that one must “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” In this case, Caesar wants payment for the tattoo and the courts will judge the non-payment. Of course, this felon may claim that the tattoo was warning enough, but I doubt that will be a very successful defense.

OnlyGodCanJudgeMeCrossWithPrayin-1It appears however that this theme is quite popular and might require a line up of the divinely optimistic.

Sometimes tattoos make police work much easier as in this father and son combination mugshot. These characters are Floyd Bebee, 48, and his son Justin Bebee, 21, who were arrested last year. father_and_son_face_tattoo-300x189

  1. Actually, after an extensive investigation by the Swiss Guard, it was discovered that Halburton had recently done some wiring in the chapel, and was thus discounted as a miracle.

  2. Dear Jill,

    That burn mark on the floor was where the lightning bolt hit the pedophile bishop that was guiding our group. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

    1,000 dollars says’ they have a McCain/Palin bumpersticker.

    AJ, I presume that this is a legitimate offer and I accept unequivocally, the terms of your stated offer. This is not to be construed as a counter offer but a point of clarification of the terms of your offer. Hence, it is a conditional acceptance so long as the funds are payable in US Dollars.

    This would be Denton County, the city of Denton, Texas. How would you like to arrange payment and to see the video of the car? I can assure you I will do what is necessary. How long is the Now Contract’s duration?

  4. Come on now, art work is artwork. Ok, what do you call a guy with not arms and legs on you wall? Art.

    I guess he is ok with his permanent marking.

    Now the father and son, I guess stupidity know no bounds. Get er Done on the fore head. Ok, what did he need to do to get that stupid? Is he really from AK, a lot of stupid stuff comes out now. Ok, crazy, are either related to the Palin drug labs? We must be mething on something.

  5. seamus,

    Was that black pit on the floor the place where you were standing? I went there last year and it sure looked like god had thrown a bolt at someone. I didn’t realize a god could miss, but here you are, alive and well.

  6. Interesting side note: I took a tour of the Vatican a few years ago. I forget which saint is depicted in the picture posted by the Prof.,but I recall that he was martred by having his skin flayed while alive. Any way, as an apparent inside joke, Michael Angelo put his own silly-puddied face on the saint’s bone-less corpse. And now you know the rest of the story.
