He’s not only my co-pilot, he’s my lawyer, too

From Canada’s CBC:

The couple spoke in tongues in court to a stuffed lion who they claimed was giving them direct counsel from God.

They rejected legal aid, preferring to advise witnesses “it was their lawyer Jesus Christ asking the questions through the voice of the parent.”

The battle was for custody of their baby — who the mother wants to rename Jesus JoyoftheLord.

My parents were against this kind of “Christianity” when I was growing up, I don’t think it was too far away from the kind of Christianity we learned about in school. While there were no speaking in tongues, there was an idea about God’s voice talking to you in your mind, and through scripture. As a kid, it was confusing. As an adult, it’s just weird.
