At the end of the day, God will get us out

I don’t think so. No, in fact I think these two loose screws are going spend some time in prison.

Self-appointed Baptist pastor Colin Haag Jr. along with his wife were arrested for kidnapping. It’s a long complicated story clouded by idiocy.

Amanda Haag’s two daughters, ages 7 and 12, were found on April 18 by themselves in a room at the Eagle’s Lodge motel in Ellsworth after Colin Haag’s father, Colin Haag Sr., told police that he had been held a virtual prisoner in the family’s cellar and that Amanda Haag was hiding her two daughters from her ex-partner, who police said had legal custody.

After the Haags were arrested, the girls were reunited with their biological father who has returned with them to Florida, according to police. The man had been searching for his daughters for more than two years.

“I’m sitting here, facing 30 years in jail, for something I didn’t do,” Haag Jr. said Monday, tears springing to his eyes.

Here is what you need to know. Pastor Haag never finished high school, could not get into the Marines, got ordained as a minister from the Universal Life Church of Modesto and found a job as a pastor via www.pastorfinder.com… without any qualifications. I mean, what the hell?  Oh wait, he was fired after two months for allegedly stealing from the Church. Of course, now that he has experience, he just started his own church.

Why do people trust these people?
