OMAHA, Neb. – A Nebraska man who stole a painting of the Virgin Mary to finance an abortion for a teen he was accused of raping has been convicted of first-degree sexual assault and felony theft. I normally wouldn't dedicate a post to some crime in Nebraska, but it's been quite a while since the first sentence in a news story stopped me down like that. I understand all the Christian theology about salvation but, man, if this guy didn't punch his ticket to the Underworld with that series of crimes, then I don't know what would. But the story does have a positive side. If any of you out there have been feeling a little guilty about some big sin you've been engaged in, this guy has to make you feel a little better about yourself. Right?
