Thank You, Georgia

December 31, 2013 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

When I see a story like this, my first response is. “okay, where in Texas did this happen?”

That’s why I want to say, “Thank you Georgia.”

This is exactly why the Gideon’s put Bibles in southern hotel rooms.

bibleTwo residents of Cartersville may have not directly broken one of the Ten Commandments, but they did break the law when their fight over the sacred covenant turned violent.

According to police reports, Carolyn Unfricht and Daniel Camarda were inside a Cartersville hotel arguing about the Bible and specifically the Ten Commandments

Unfricht told police things got heated when she hit him across the face with her Bible. Camarda retaliated by throwing her across the room.

Both are now facing battery charges and not surprisingly, the police report states they were “highly intoxicated” at the time of the arrest.

Hummm … they must have read Rick Perry’s Christmas card.

I have long said that the rightwing uses Jesus as their own personal savior weapon so I would truly like to thank Carolyn and Daniel for giving us the literal graphics.

Thanks to Monty for the heads up.

  1. Gives the term “Bible thumper” new meaning, doesn’t it?

    Wingnuts have a version of Kama Sutra for the thousand and one most ridiculous things they can find to do with a friend.

  5. Inquiring minds still want to know: WHICH Ten Commandment were they fighting over? What was the substance of the argument? I mean, this is important theological stuff we’re up to our armpits in, and we need to know who had the shovel and who was just throwing it by the handful. Only if we know what led to Bible-abuse can we prevent it. And which Bible, for that matter. I know the Gideons don’t put Bibles in the hotel bedside tables in Utah–they put the Book of Mormon (or someone does) (Come to think of it, I never checked the table on the other side of the bed…if there’s a King James Bible in one and the Book of Mormon in the other, that’s a setup for serious Bible/Book of Mormon abuse right there.)

    Anyway, today’s right wing should oppose putting anything in the drawers of bedside tables, on the grounds that if you have a religion you should bring your own d*mned book, and if you don’t, you deserve to be left high and dry with nothing to read but the pretty Guide To Whatsis with a list of shops & restaurants you obviously can’t afford and an article on a famous former resident.

  6. Hallelujah! Now I know what they mean when they say “the judge threw the book at them!” Oh, Georgia! Oh, joy unbounding!

  7. People have been beating other people with the Bible for about 1700 years, so no surprise here except that it’s usually not one-on-one.

  8. Elizabeth — Excellent points! I, too, would like more information, although, as Rhea notes, I see little hope for eliminating the scourge of Bible abuse that’s taken over the right wing. Georgia just took it to a new level, but I can’t tell you how shocked I was to learn that alcohol was involved.

  9. Elizabeth – I agree, I think light would be shed on the situation if we knew which commandment. Commandments are short with very little fine print, so when two people disagree about the meaning, there is DEFINITELY a story there. Where’s the Enquirer when you need good investigatory & imaginary journalism?

  10. The smart money is on the “coveting thy neighbor’s wife” commandment, since those two apparently were not man and wife, but had gotten to know each other in the “Biblical” sense.

    I would pay $20 for an 8X10 glossy of the guy’s face with the words “Holy Bible” impressed into his skin. Of course, they would be backwards, but that’s nothing a little Photoshop couldn’t fix.
