Stupid Bible Stories part 101 – Smited for Saving the Ark of the Covenant

File:Tissot Moses and Joshua in the Tabernacle.jpg1 Chronicles 13:7-10 KJV
7  And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart.
8  And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.
9  And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.
10  And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.

OK God, the guy was trying to save the damn thing.  You should have been grateful.  But then you just completely lost your head and fried the poor guy.

Christians wonder why we think their God is a sadistic freak.  It’s stuff like this.  Honestly, talk about petty and insane.  Here’s a great example.
