Religion and driving

Relax, folks, this isn't a deep subject. It's pretty light-hearted, actually.

I was behind a car this morning that was going slower than molasses in February. It had one of those "Jesus Is The Way" bumper stickers. More often than not, when I see a vehicle that has one or more "pro-Jesus" stickers, the vehicle is going very slow.

I may be wrong, but I seriously doubt Jesus will love you folks any less if you drove a little freakin' faster! I mean, at least go the speed limit, or maybe a tad faster! Heck, for that matter, I don't think that driving like Jeff Gordon is exactly going to tick off the Almighty, do you?

God will love you if you speed. God will love you if you drive the speed limit. God will also love you if you drive slowly, but everyone else will become incredibly irate! How about throw the rest of us drivers a bone and find the thin pedal on the right?

Also, I recall driving through Tallahassee a few years ago and damned near getting run off the road by a driver who was flying like a bat out of hell. After regaining my composure, I couldn't help but laugh when I saw his "Choose Life" license plate. I guess he was choosing to END his life (and mine) by driving that way!

Anyway, that's my rambling for today. I will try to post something more pertinent and thought-provoking later.
