FUN NEWS

Putting it all on God
Estrella's claims of warnings sent by God last month of deep government conspiracies were hard to swallow. However, what was tougher still is another complaint in the courts during the same time. It turns out that Kevin Russell, from Hobart, Indiana went to the Chase Bank with a $ 50, 000 check signed by "King Savior, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Servant." When asked who gave him the check, Kevin replied that his father gave it to him. The divine power chose not to intervene when the police arrested Kevin on fraud charges, but the words "In God we Trust" went missing from the new $1 coins issued by the Philadelphia Mint.
