Don’t Breast Feed While Driving

By | August 8, 2003

This story is weird enough without all of the extra weirdness contained in the details. A woman was arrested after she was caught breast feeding while driving. That, in and of itself, is strange.

But read more of the story, and things get stranger. The woman belongs to an ultra-conservative Christian sect, First Christian Fellowship for Eternal Sovereignty. This sect believes that a husband has total and complete control over his wife (using a very sexist passage of the bible – written by Paul, of course – that says, “Wives, be in subjection unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife…” (Ephesians 5:22 – 5:23)). Apparently, her husband told her to breastfeed the baby while driving, so she did so.

State patrol officers noticed that she was holding her baby and tried to pull her over. She didn’t pull over, however; instead, she drove on for several more miles, talking on her cellphone with her husband and writing down instructions he gave her, before finally pulling over. Once she was finally stopped, she refused to talk to the officers until her husband gave her permission.

In her trial, the woman acted as her own lawyer. She actually questioned herself while she was giving testimony!

I am guessing that this woman may be mentally challenged.
