The Bible won't even save him

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - October 18, 2012

A least not in Wisconsin.

A state appeals court has tossed out a religious freedom argument against traffic laws.

Jeffrey L. Manke was cited for doing 71 in a 55 zone.

He contended that his right to religious freedom was violated because the law prohibits a person from speeding.

Manke says his Bible studies show he is a man, not a person.

The court said yes, he is a man, which also makes him a person.
