DAYTON, OH – Police say two bullets aimed at an Ohio bus driver’s chest were stopped, by the bible in his shirt pocket. The driver, 49-year-old Rickey Waggoner, was hit in the leg by a third bullet. Police say the other two shots jammed into the Dayton bus driver’s Bible and did not penetrate his chest.

Waggoner had pulled his public transit bus onto the side of the road after it stopped running. Police say as he was trying to fix the problem a group of guys walked up to him and shot him three times and stabbed him in the arm.

Waggoner was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover.

    Man, God sure works in mysterious ways!

    He protected this guy from harm with the bible, yet didn’t protect little 10-year-old Hailey! Hmm, wonder why. Well, it’s because Hailey was supposed to visit her maker now, right? Then I guess God doesn’t want to meet this bus driver right now! Yet, death is a glorious re-uniting with the maker, yet it’s horrible if this guy had got it, yet – wow, religion is confusing! Whew!

    I guess that’s why the religious faithful are such a confused bunch! (i.e. against abortion yet all for a powerful military and killing in Iraq, into the bible AND guns, etc.!)

      I just dont care about abortion, love my guns, don’t care that we stormed through Iraq, and think we should not only use the death penalty, but do it by firing squad to save a ton of money.

      WHAT FAITH AM I? :)
