Thanking Jesus in court lands man in jail

Remember the quote, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me" ? I am sure Junior Stowers has had time to reflect on this and feels otherwise. Can you imagine saying, "Thank you, Jesus", and landing yourself in jail?

Stowers has been charged with hitting his son, but he had been acquitted in court. His son recanted his story and said his brother had done it, and his brother testified it was the truth. The judge had requested no emotions to be shown in court, but apparently the court appointed lawyer for Stowers did not inform the man, and his outburst was considered contempt of court.

Christ always had trouble with the courts. Now teh Devil, he only lost one case -- and that was to Daniel Webster

Don, you have me pondering that question! I know there has to be a reasonable answer - just can't think of it! Was it the 'lower case'? :)
