    Pastor jailed for invoking God's wrath

    Court rules that he can post bond while appealing conviction

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - A community activist who ran for Congress from prison, where he had been sent for warning that a judge could be tortured by God, can post bond while he appeals his conviction, an appeals court has ruled.

    After being convicted and sentenced to probation in 2007 for paying people to vote in a Benton Harbor recall election, Edward Pinkney wrote an article in a small Chicago newspaper saying the judge who handled the case could be punished by God with curses, fever and "extreme burning" unless he changed his ways.

    Another judge considered the article a threat and sentenced Pinkney to three to 10 years in prison for violating his probation.

    Hey judge, you better be careful, he'll probably have God damning you to Hell for that one.:eek:
