“There was a woman one day caught in adultery, and the religious people brought her to Jesus. And they said to Jesus, the law says she should be stoned. Jesus knelt down and drew in the sand. He looked up and said, ‘Ye without sin, cast the first stone.’

“Drop your stone.”
Rest in peace, Steve McNair.
