Daniel in the lion's den... Not

From Reuters:

KIEV - A man shouting that God would keep him safe was mauled to death by a lioness in Kiev zoo after he crept into the animal's enclosure, a zoo official said on Monday.

"The man shouted 'God will save me, if he exists', lowered himself by a rope into the enclosure, took his shoes off and went up to the lions," the official said.

"A lioness went straight for him, knocked him down and severed his carotid artery."

The incident, Sunday evening when the zoo was packed with visitors, was the first of its kind at the attraction. Lions and tigers are kept in an "animal island" protected by thick concrete blocks.

Didn't something like this just happen somewhere else a few weeks ago? What is the MATTER with people? Dumbasses.

That man was just stuck on stupid. The LORD says not to test him, and this fool obviously has not read his Bible.

I have to assume there was some mental illness involved.

God wants us to have faith. Not be STUPID. If you find yourself in a situation, you can pray for help, deliverance, guidance, whatever strikes your fancy... and have faith that God's will will be done. If no mental illness was involved, I'm not sure I have tons of sympathy for the terminally stupid. Darwinism CAN be seen as a gift from God, I suppose.
