    Texas Pastor Electrocuted During Baptism
    Sunday, October 30, 2005

    WACO, Texas — A pastor performing a baptism was electrocuted inside his church Sunday morning after grabbing a microphone while partially submerged, a church employee said.

    The Rev. Kyle Lake, 33, was standing in water up to his shoulder in a baptismal at University Baptist Church (search) when he was electrocuted, said Jamie Dudley, a church business administrator and wife of another pastor there.

    Doctors in the congregation performed chest compressions for 40 minutes before Lake was taken to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center (search), Dudley said. Police said they weren't called and the hospital referred calls to the church.

    The woman Lake was baptizing was not injured, Dudley said.

    Pastors at University Baptist Church routinely use a microphone during baptisms, Dudley said.

    "He was grabbing the microphone so everyone could hear," Dudley said. "It's the only way you can be loud enough."

    Sorry, I forget the link and added it in an edit. It's Fox News, so it must be true.

    Obviously God hates a moron as much as the next supernatural being.
