Headline O’ the Day

Takoma Park Man Beats Ex-Girlfriend with 18-Pound Crucifix

And the article contains this tidbit:

The victim bought herself time during the attack by telling the man to stop long enough to turn on a Barbie DVD for their two girls to watch in another room so they wouldn’t see the assault, authorities said.

Despite the implement in the headline, this appears to be a case of ordinary craziness, not religious craziness.
