Man claims stolen house was bought from God

Brent Wilson of Lake County, Montana was convicted of illegally taking possession of a foreclosed house and moving in. Apparently, Wilson had filed paperwork with the county claiming that he had actually bought the home… from Yahweh. From FindLaw:

Many of the journal entries was also addressed to Yahweh, whom Wilson seemed to regard as a sort of sleeping partner in his real estate endeavors.

Wilson refused all attempts to assign him counsel for the case and to even to participate. He offered no defense and, writes the AP, read from an IRS document Monday and was reading the Bible during Tuesday's court session.

Here, finally, the strangest fact of all. A court-ordered mental health evaluation found Wilson fit to stand trial. He will be sentenced August 19.
