Bus Driver Saves Students From Armed Terrorists Doing ĎGodís Willí

A quick thinking school bus driver prevents armed terrorists from doing “God’s will” and attacking students and teachers at an elementary school in Macon County, NC.

Earlier this week Adam Conley, 38, and Kathryn Jeter, 29, both heavily armed, were arrested on the South Macon Elementary School grounds. When asked why they were at the school with loaded guns the suspects said it was “God’s will.”

When asked what they would do if children and teachers had shown up, they said that “if it would have been God’s will for us to shoot the children” they would have shot them.

However, quick thinking school bus driver Alice Bradley prevented what could have been a horrific tragedy. In a press conference Friday, Macon County Sheriff Robert Holland praised Bradley for preventing a potential bloodbath.

Is it absurd? Yes Is it rediculous? Yes.

Then again, ALL claims to know what a particular god wants fall into this category, wouldn't you agree?
