In the United States of Jebus (aka Jesusistan), no one should be surprised to be witnessed to by Jebus' minions. A couple of Druids were pulled over by a volunteer police officer in Greer, South Carolina.

Now, I was all set to do a knee jerk "Lack-of-tolerance-in-the-"turn-the-other-cheek"-crowd" post when I re-read the article.

According to the article, "the officer cited Tony Gainey for driving with a suspended license, not having proper license plates or proof of insurance." We can then assume that the officer spotted the improper license plates and pulled Gainey over. However, Gainey said they were pulled over because of their bumper stickers, which were pagan stickers. During the stop, they reported, he asked about the stickers. After issuing the citations, the Gaineys apparently went home.

A few days later, they received a card from the officer reading: "God is calling you to listen to words from the Baptists. This is clear! If you deny this, then you are pushing away the hand of God and that would not be wise."

Had I received a card like that, I'd be pissed. But I don't know that I would accuse the officer of "promoting his religion during a traffic stop" when the promotion came a few days later.

Having said all of that, I'm not the least bit surprised that a volunteer police officer would do that. The current belief in the US is "Christian = American."
