TAIPEI, Taiwan - A man leaped into a lion’s den at the Taipei Zoo on Wednesday to try to convert the king of beasts to Christianity, but was bitten in the leg for his efforts.

“Jesus will save you!” shouted the 46-year-old man at two African lions lounging under a tree a few meters away.

“Come bite me!” he said with both hands raised, television footage showed.

One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right leg before zoo workers drove it off with water hoses and tranquilizer guns.

Newspapers said that the lions had been fed earlier in the day, otherwise the man might have been more seriously hurt ... or worse.

Lesson to be learned: it doesn't pay to convert.

A much needed smile resulted from that.

This guy is truly a man of God...even the King of Beasts obeys his commands :
“Come bite me!” he said with both hands raised...One of the lions, a large male with a shaggy mane, bit the man in his right leg
Now will all you heathen believe in the power of the Lord ?

True, but since they didn't finish their afternoon snack, we can only conclude he tasted like hell.
