So help us God

It will take nothing short of divine intervention to make Kwame Kilpatrick — the embattled mayor of Detroit who was jailed last week for the crime of visiting Canada — empty his desk and go home:
"The mayor says that he serves God and he speaks to God and he's chosen by God, so hopefully those who also say that they have been chosen by God, if they speak to him ... then maybe God will speak to the mayor and he will step down," said a city council member.

Kilpatrick once said he considers his job an assignment from God.
New charges, public outrage.
