Today’s award goes to an over-credulous (and late) pastor in Zimbabwe.
A pastor has been killed after he was eaten by three crocodiles while trying to walk on water, it has been claimed.
Jonathan Mthethwa was trying to show his congregation how Jesus walked on water by crossing what is locally known as Crocodile River on foot, according to local reports.
. . .
‘All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.’
There’s more at the link.
Y’know, Jesus walked across the Sea of Galilee. I daresay even he might have thought twice about trying it on the Crocodile River! He might have sent Daniel, though – he made it through a night in a lion’s den, so crocodiles probably wouldn’t have fazed him . . .
EDITED TO ADD: It seems the report was false. Pity . . . it made a good Doofus Of The Day entry!
