Called God a liar and burned on the spot



"But I come down later and give you a fact that is proved by scores of witnesses. This last August (1886) a man got provoked at the continued drought and the ruin of his crops, and in the presence of his neighbors he cursed God, saying that he would cut His heart out if He would come, calling Him a liar and a coward, and flashing a knife. And while he was speaking his lower jaw dropped, smoke issued from mouth and nostrils, and the heat of his body was so intense it drove back those who would come near. Scores of people visited the scene and saw the blasphemer in the awful process of expiring. It is a very, very, very long roll that contains the names of those who died with blasphemies on their lips."
