    OH - Bible Saves Bus Driver from Two Bullets

    Bible stops two bullets to save life of Ohio bus driver, police say | Fox News

    Rickey Waggoner, a Dayton RTA bus driver, was making a mechanical fix outside his bus when three assailants approached him and shot him in what appears to have been a gang initiation, the Dayton Daily News reported.

    Waggoner was shot twice in the chest at close range, but a contemporary version of the Bible, titled "The Message," absorbed the bullets that would otherwise have killed the 49-year-old bus driver, according to police documents obtained by the newspaper.

    Also from the article,
    Waggoner reportedly told police that one of the assailants was heard telling another to kill the man "if you want to be all the way in the club."
    That is ... frightening.

    Bible has saved a lot more than one bus driver.

    I'd be curious to know in which passage each bullet stopped... Hopefully in something impactful (see what I did there).

    I don't blame the ammo - I was never able to make it all the way through the good book either.

    That's just wrong. Funny, but wrong.

    I'm guessing the round started out strong and then lost all of its momentum in 1 Chronicles.

    I am thinking the first passage was Exodus 20:13 - "Thou shalt not kill"

    I hate stories like this; "iPod saves kid from bullet". Or this one. We don't know if the be would have died if he bible wasn't there. Also we don't what the rounds were. The reality is it doesn't take much to go through a "New testament" pocket book bible that is most likely less than a 1/2 of an inch thick. So if the rounds were stopped by that, they didn't have that much kick.

    The reality is, the Bible stopped the bullets.

    The claim was the bible saved his life, not that the bible stopped the bullets.
