    SUVs cop more flak...

    It's in this dodgy source, but apparently it's true...

    Yes, this is true and it is a campaign by some fundamentalist Christian groups in the US against SUVs. They use the WWJD (What would Jesus Drive) line of argument to push their point across. Here is something I found on the net:

    One theory is that Jesus would tool around in an old Plymouth because "the Bible says God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury."

    But in Psalm 83, the Almighty clearly owns a Pontiac and a Geo. The passage urges the Lord to "pursue your enemies with your Tempest and terrify them with your Storm."

    Perhaps God favors Dodge pickup trucks, because Moses' followers are warned not to go up a mountain "until the Ram's horn sounds a long blast."

    Some scholars insist that Jesus drove a Honda but didn't like to talk about it. As proof, they cite a verse in St. John's gospel where Christ tells the crowd, "For I did not speak of my own Accord . . . "

    Meanwhile, Moses rode an old British motorcycle, as evidenced by a Bible passage declaring that "the roar of Moses' Triumph is heard in the hills."

    Joshua drove a Triumph sports car with a hole in its muffler: "Joshua's Triumph was heard throughout the land."

    And, following the Master's lead, the Apostles carpooled in a Honda: "The Apostles were in one Accord"!
    You're not paranoid if everyone hates you.
