Weird things seen while driving

Caught up on my reading the other day.

Didn’t have much choice, really, since I was stopped at a red light near Dick’s, Spokane's beloved burger emporium.

The worn copper-colored van in front of me was plastered with an array of biblical imperatives, like…

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.”

“Jesus Said I am the way the truth and the life.”

“Jesus Christ paid for our sins.”

I believe every American has the right to ram religion down the throats of the driving community at major intersections.

But there should be a law against mixed messages that can create a hazardous driving situation due to confusion and laughter.

That’s what happened to me.

The light turned green but I could barely get going again after reading the message in red letters that was stuck in the middle of this holy-roller’s outpouring:

“Do I Look Like A (“Bleeping”) People Person?”

Well, hallelujah to you too, pal.
