May 9: "God has blessed me and my family enormously. He's been in that courtroom every day. He has a plan and a purpose in this and I have complete confidence it's going to come out fine," said [Enron Chairman Kenny-boy] Lay as his case went to the Jury.
May 25: Lay, upon receiving guilty verdicts in two separate trials: "Certainly this was not the outcome we expected. I firmly believe I’m innocent of the charges against me, as I have said from day one. I still firmly believe that as of this day. But despite what happened today, I am still a very blessed man. I have, on my left, this beautiful lady that's my wife. I have a very warm and loving and Christian family that supports me, a lot of friends, including some out there in the audience right now. And most of all, we believe that God, in fact, is in control, and indeed He does work all things for good for those who love the Lord. And we love our Lord, and ultimately all of these things will work for good. Thank you so much for all of your courtesies, all of your interests, and obviously as time goes on we'll have more things to say, but that's all I want to say today. Thank you.
Do these gentlemen* attend the Matchbook School of Jesusology because their criminal instincts tell them it's a good idea, or do they develop as master criminals because they believe, thanks to said schools, that they are innocent instruments of God?
