The BBC news has reported: Pilot Jailed for Sicily Air Crash. What was his crime? Instead of doing his job, he thought it would be better to pray:
An Italian court has jailed a Tunisian pilot who paused to pray instead of taking emergency measures before ditching his plane, killing 16 people.
Since everyone knows that prayer works it was a rational decision! Right? Obviously prayer would bring the aircraft down safely or fill the empty fuel tanks. Right? Tell that to the families of the 16 people who died. And they say that prayer can’t hurt. In this case, it hurt plenty.
