Jesus has jury duty

A woman in Birmingham, AL, changed her name to Jesus Christ. And then she got called to jury duty.

When her named was called at the court, other potential jurors laughed out loud. Christ was excused from jury duty soon thereafter for being "disruptive," because she insisted on asking questions instead of providing answers when questioned by the court and attorneys. The Socratic/Jesus method evidently doesn't go over well in Alabama.

My only concern for Christians in this matter is: What if this woman is indeed their Jesus come again? How are they to know? Where is their faith? Is this woman not Jesus in clever disguise, suffering new indignities -- and preparing for wrath anew upon the unbelieving?

Ah, such are the conundrums of the people of "faith."
