A 25-year-old Arizona man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of child abuse after allegedly burning his 5-year-old son’s hand because the boy touched his Bible. Johnny Salazar, of Chandler, Ariz., was taking care of the boy and his 2-year-old brother — who he has joint custody of with their mother — when the incident occurred. When Salazar’s parents returned from church on Sunday, they noticed red blistering on the wrist of the 5-year-old. They asked their son what happened and he told them he burned the child with a cigarette lighter, police said. “The boy was touching his Bible and he thought the boy may be possessed,” Chandler Police Sgt. Joe Favazzo said.
What. An. Idiot. If you’re possessed you touch Bibles????? Ghastly ignorance and sickening idiocy. Via Robert Wilson on the FB.
