“Jesus Told Me to Do It”

This is a follow-up on a previous post.

The man accused of driving into the entrance of the Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Paul on Thursday told police that Jesus instructed him to do it, according to charges filed Friday.

“Stop the murderers,” Matthew L. Derosia quoted Jesus as telling him, a criminal complaint said.

Oh, but it gets better.

According to the complaint filed Friday in Ramsey County District Court, Derosia, of Cottage Grove, took his mother’s boyfriend’s vehicle and drove to the Highland Park clinic after he watched abortion coverage on a “Catholic channel” and decided that “he wasn’t doing enough protesting.”

Thank you, Matthew, for making the connection for me. You named a cause. Police documented the effect.

Makes me think of that Nick Cave album, “Your Funeral, My Trial.”
