I don't know if this is better for the religious forum but anyway...

TAIPEI (Reuters) - A man leaped into a lion's den at the Taipei Zoo on Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was bitten in the leg for his efforts.
"Jesus will save you!" the 46-year-old man shouted at two African lions lounging under a tree a few meters away.

"Come bite me!" he said with both hands raised, television footage showed.

One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right leg before zoo workers drove it off with water hoses and tranquilizer guns.

Newspapers said that the lions had been fed earlier in the day, otherwise the man might have been more seriously hurt ... or worse.


After a day like yesterday where it seems that nothing makes sense, it's good to hear a story like this to put things into perspective

Guess he took the Roman practice of feeding Christians to the lions to heart, hmm?

Sorry, either way it's already covered:

And, it doesn't meet the requirements for the 'Currrent Events' forum, "...intended for "Other World Events Of Major Importance" - generally those with a conspiracy-related slant to them" as stated here:
