Here is a real story.

Here one early morning, a man, his wife, and two kids were walking on the
side walk of a major street, all of them in birthday suits. A policeman
stopped them and politely inquired of them why are they in this condition;
may be they are homeless or someone stole all their clothes etc.

The man responded responded that God commanded them to take throw away all
their clothes and directed them to start walking on the sidewalk. The
policeman politely told them he would give a ride and took them to the
police station in his patrol car.

At least they are not doing any harm to anyone. Sometimes God acts in
strange ways!!! I like such a God not the ones which is on a destructive
