"Priest dies after trying to walk on water"

Source: ReligionNewsBlog
A priest has died after trying to demonstrate how Jesus walked on water.

Evangelist preacher Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle.

But he drowned after walking out to sea from a beach in the capital Libreville in Gabon, west Africa.

It's hard to not laugh a little at this, but it's part of the tragedy people experience as a direct result of blind faith. Blind faith is remarkably dangerous. It is a shame and I hope his followers will use this as a wake-up call.
