Here is the saddest part of the story...with out the forgiveness of sins through salvation which can only be obtained thru the blood of Jesus Christ no one....no one enters heaven. So,,all teh praying over beads that mean nothing will get you nothing and trust me he knows that now. If he did not know Jesus as his Lord and Saviuor this man is in hell for all eternity. That is reality.
Reality is not going to mass every day becasue you are religous, religion has NOTHING to do with going to heaven. So, he may have been a religous man but if he didnt know Christ he is nashing his teeth in hell.
You need proof? Read the bible.
Am I mean? No, this is REALITY.
JOHN 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave his only son that who evers believes in Him shall not perish, that means that you do go to heaven beacsue you prayed over stupid liitle beads of nothing, that means that you dont go to heaven becasue you are a nice person, that means you dont go to heaven becasue you went to some building that is clothed in a thousand years of sin.

I agree...

It's a shame what happened, but take the keys away from these old people.

How many accidents do they have to cause until we see it's a real problem?

Oh and if the geezer KNEW Jesus then Jesus would have said to him..why do you pray over stopid little wooden round balls on a string? Why do you go to a building to pray when I promised you in the bible that I would never leave or forsake you?
Why? Becasue this man didnt KNOW Jesus and didnt know anything about God. Bad people go to heaven over this guy all day long beacsue they ask Jesus for forgiveness of sin and have a RELATIONSHIP with the King of Kings.
Sad but more than likely this guy is burning. dont get burned repent from your sins that you may know true freedom.

You all can pray for this dead idiot, I pray for the person who had to be part of this accident, and for the horror she had to go through because this man took to driving when he clearly should'nt have.
Did he have any kids, and why in the hell are they not taking his cars keys away?
first of all try reading the story the right way, he had 5 kids and he did not hit a lady it was a man. did you ever hear of an accident most young drivers have them.

Aren't you the same guy i see around here ranting about minorities??? Remember, to be a Christian is to be Christ like...keep that in mind if that is indeed what you profess to be.

You are sick and a LOSER! I saw your post a few days ago on the story about the boy who fell from the back of the town truck. Believe me idiot-- you are NOT bringing people over to your religion. You are turning them away from it! Stop spewing this stuff in the name of Jesus. I said it once, and I'll say it again-- you'd better hope Jesus loves you, because we cannot stand you.

Keith,

Newsflash, your going to die and just for saying those nasty hatefilled things you said you might be going to where the son never shines when you die because of you AntiCatholic, Bigotted JUDGMENTAL ATTITUDE DUDE.

That man I can guarantee is in Heaven right now because of his Faith, because of praying the Holy Rosary everyday and going to Mass to receive Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, and because he had his last rites. He is now with his lovely wife together in Heaven.

Just because were Catholics and True Christians does not mean were damned. I think you better apologize to his family and to 1.6 billion + Catholics in the world and on the internet looking at your ugly words.
Shame on you and you call yourself christian. I don't think you are at all by the way you say AntiCatholic Whoppers on a Catholic Forum.

Get outta here, you swinne. New rule, hate is no longer allowed to florish here cause that just divides the Body of Christ.

Keith,

How dare you say we Catholics do not know Jesus. Your a dangerous man to even think those thoughts. What church do you go to the excluded except only Holier than thou crowd. Your an extremist and you are so invisibly dumb to the Catholic Faith.

What makes you think that he didn't know his Creator? In fact he knew Jesus all his life because through the Church, he went through the Bible every three years throughout his entire life. Do you read your Bible or do you WORSHIP THE BIBLE BOOK. Did you know your an idolitor? You worship a book.

You owe me an others here an apology for that wisecrack about that poor man and his fate aimed to Attack Catholics and non-catholics for not praying a prayer(sinners) that I can't even find in the Bible.

Jesus says to pray the Our Father. Not a sinners prayer.
