Incredible moment man with knife suddenly falls to floor just moments before he ‘stabs priest’

Posted By Staff

Date: January 22nd, 2016

priestColombia – This is the freakish moment a suspected armed attacker was ‘felled by the power of God’ after he allegedly attempted to kill a priest in a Colombian church.

Video footage shows the would-be hooded assassin leaping from his seat at the front of the congregation and pulling out a large knife as he runs up to Pedro Pablo Martin.

But he stops in his tracks as he comes within inches of the priest – who reacts to the assault with the words: “There is power in the name of Jesus”.

As the religious man repeats the same phrase over and over again in the same monotone voice, the mystery assailant takes his hood down before appearing to lose his bearings and falling to the floor as if the grip of a greater force.  More   Video

cabNew York – A Muslim New York taxi driver was fined by a court after he refused to let a woman sit next to him in the front of his cab citing ‘religious reasons’.

Last week, the Sartorette staff informed parents the school would suspend the outing to see Santa at a local coffee shop after a Jewish mother, who identified herself only as Talia, complained to the school board that the district was celebrating one religion over others.  More
