KUNA, ID—Christian Patricia Johnson has felt beset by people who treat her unjustly and is wary of a political climate in which people seem intent on going after her faith. Fulfilling her Christian duty, she has prayed for her enemies, that they may find peace with God -- though she’s also made it clear to the Almighty that if He instead wants to use His wrath against them, that’s cool too.
“We have to love our enemies,” Johnson explained. “That means when people are unfair to me or say mean things to me online, I need to act with love and grace. Still, if God wants to start smiting those people with, like, thunder or maybe meteors... that’s up to Him. He’s His own boss.”
“Please be with those who persecute me, and comfort those who wish me harm,” Johnson prayed recently. “Of course, I’m not trying to tell You what to do. If You want to start smiting those heathens left and right, that’s Your prerogative.”
Johnson then read about a new law going after religious liberty and prayed that God would change the hearts of those politicians. And she really meant it, because if those politicians were swallowed up by a giant crack in the earth as they deserved, they’d probably be replaced by people just as bad in a special election.

SAN FRANCISCO—A cashier working the closing shift at a small mom-and-pop store on Sutter St. was left shocked and bewildered when a customer tried to pay for her items.
Store security footage reveals the customer roamed the store calmly while looters plucked most shelves dry. She picked up a few trinkets before heading to the register.
"I wasn't really paying attention," said the cashier, Brian Risico. "We get lots of looters, but I don't think I've ever seen a paying customer. No one taught me how to use the register."
"Then this chick comes up," he continued. "She's– I don't know. Normal? She placed some products on the counter and asked for the damage. I thought she was going to hurt me, but it turned out she wanted to know how much money she should give me."
Risico stared blankly at the woman for a minute before panicking and fleeing in terror. The unnamed customer then placed a twenty on the counter and left. The twenty-dollar bill was promptly stolen.

U.S.—As part of a bold new marketing strategy to promote inclusivity and appeal to less than 1% of the population, Mars, Incorporated has introduced a new M&M character who identifies as a Skittle.
"I'm gonna be honest here. We basically are doing this because it's hip and makes us look cool," said Mars, Incorporated CEO Franklin Crunchy. "And that adds to the bottom line. I think we can make a decent fortune by comparing the hardship of real trans people to a wacky cartoon character."
"Trans people deserve to be represented by M&Ms," he continued. "Our Trans-Skittle character will help us break chocolate-covered barriers in your mouth and not in your hands."
The new character, named Quinn, is an M&M that wears an "S" because they haven't had letter reassignment surgery yet. On the inside, Quinn has the same chocolate taste because it isn't able to change anything but its outward appearance.
"We just want to let the trans community know that M&M supports you and wants your money!"...
