The Lord sending bears to maul young children to death

A commenter at another site mentioned this story in response to a drive-by Christian who came by to tell everyone how they need his god's love. I had forgotten this Bible story that is scary as any Halloween horror story. Here is first what the satirical site, Landover Baptist Church had written about it:

The Lord sending bears to maul young children to death is nothing new to True Christians who have memorized their Bible! Saved folks know that the Lord Jesus is liable to send ravenous bears to kill children at the drop of a hat, as was the case when He sent two bears to rip apart 42 children who were rude enough to mock a bald man. Glory!

And the passage from the Bible: From The Holy Bible, 2 Kings 2:23-24:

"And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them"

The love of God is wonderfully horrifying, ain't it?

I linked to this with credit to you. I had forgotten about the bears eating the children. Isn't God's love wonderful?

These stories are probably where the idea of the "boogeyman" came from.
