Rip It ripoff?

While waiting for lunch at the sandwich shop today, I glanced in the cooler containing various beverages. One caught my eye--it was labeled as an energy drink, something that has gotten rather popular lately. Now here's the amazing part: the label also claimed the drink contained 0 calories!

Uh-oh...Is this the beginning of a trend?

Last post was about the guy who cut off his hand, per God's instructions, and microwaved it.

Now, (another AP story, via CNN) I read about another whacko who claims to be doing God's bidding by cooking his girlfriend after killing her:
Shearer's boyfriend, Christopher Lee McCuin, 25, was charged with capital murder after police said they found her body, an ear boiling in a pot on a stovetop, and a hunk of flesh with a fork in it on a plate at the crime scene.

Smith County Sheriff Lt. Larry Wiginton told the Tyler Morning Telegraph that McCuin told investigators that God made him kill Shearer.

"When he said God told him to do it, one of the investigators looked at him and just said, 'What did you say?"' according to Wiginton.
McCuin called 911 and said he was boiling his girlfriend, leading authorities to suspect that perhaps he was going to eat her. Apparently, he did not inform of God's instructions until after he was picked up.

McCuin also stabbed his estranged wife after he killed his girlfriend. It is not yet clear if the stabbing also was a divine command.

What part of this is not in the Bible?

According to an AP report in the York (Penna.) Daily News:
A man who believed he bore the "mark of the beast" used a circular saw to cut off one hand, then he cooked it in the microwave and called 911, authorities said.
The book of Matthew says and if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It does not say cook it.
