Miriam Fowler Smith, who will not be going down in history as the patron saint of pit bull terriers, hung her nephew’s pit bull and then set the dog on fire. “Why?” you rightly ask. “Was the dog attacking a small child, a calico, or Fox News?” No, the dog bit her bible. Apparently, this diabolical act was inspired by Satan as a blatant attack against God. Satan, who for years inspired less subtle atrocities such as the Holocaust, Hiroshima, and the creation of American Idol, has now degenerated into using the canine world to do his bidding.
Oh, Lucifer, how far you have truly fallen.
