So much for the protection of the Lord.

A crocodile has killed a Protestant pastor who was baptising followers near a lake in southern Ethiopia.

Docho Eshete was conducting the ceremony for about 80 people on Sunday morning at Lake Abaya in Arba Minch town’s Merkeb Tabya district.

Residents and police told BBC Amharic a crocodile leapt from the water during the baptism and attacked him.

Pastor Docho died after being bitten on his legs, back and hands.

“He baptised the first person and he passed on to another one. All of a sudden, a crocodile jumped out of the lake and grabbed the pastor,” local resident Ketema Kairo told the BBC.

Look I know I’m a skeptic and everything, but I would think this might be the very thing that would shake your faith. Forever.

I mean if you cannot even count on your god to protect you long enough to perform a simple baptism, then how can you possibly think he would have your back for the long run? 

I’m just saying.

    Hope the crocodile got away before they could kill it.

    I believe it was a year or two ago now, Gryphen, that you reported to us that Iceland is now the least religious nation on the planet. Boy, do I wish I could afford to move there.

      They probably don’t want immigrants from shithole countries like the US right now.

    I think we need to keep an eye on that THIRD person that was about to be baptized!

    ““But President Trump had a lot else on his mind, turning the closed-door discussion into soliloquies on his prowess in negotiating airplane deals, his popularity, the effectiveness of his political endorsements, the Republican Party’s fortunes, the vagaries of Defense Department purchasing guidelines, his dislike of magnetized launch equipment on aircraft carriers, his unending love of coal and his breezy optimism about his planned Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.”

    “The president’s 40-minute briefing session behind closed-doors came after he spoke to cameras for about 15 minutes. He briefly referred to Puerto Rico “

      “2017 was the year of Harvey, the massive storm that made landfall last August on the Gulf Coast as a Category 4 hurricane and dumped record amounts of rain on southeast Texas. During a part of the briefing that was open to reporters, Trump hailed the Coast Guard for rescuing so many people in Texas during Harvey.

      “They saved 16,000 people, many of them in Texas, for whatever reason that is,” Trump said. “People went out in their boats to watch the hurricane. That didn’t work out too well.””

    “rump was “divinely appointed” “The Trump Prophecy” “Well now, Liberty University; an institution that doesn’t need to keep your brain in a jar full of formaldehyde to know it is dead, is reputedly making a movie that suggests God* chose trump as president. And all the while I was blaming Putin.”
