After being convicted and sentenced to probation in 2007 for paying people to vote in a Benton Harbor recall election, Edward Pinkney wrote an article in a small Chicago newspaper saying the judge who handled the case could be punished by God with curses, fever and "extreme burning" unless he changed his ways.
Another judge considered the article a threat and sentenced Pinkney to three to 10 years in prison for violating his probation. Pinkney, who says he's a Baptist minister, and his attorneys say he was only paraphrasing some Bible verses from the book of Deuteronomy.
"The court properly recognized that serious constitutional questions are raised when a minister is thrown in prison for predicting what God might do."
Does this mean the guy has a direct line and can predict what "God" will do?? He is probably as good at predicting as all the other skypilots are. Has anyone actually seen a prediction by a Bible-Banger ever come true?? The guy sounds delusional to me. This shows that the ACLU will work for anyone, no matter how much of a nutjob they are if it looks like there is a case.
