BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — What would Jesus do? Show up for jury duty.

Court officials in Birmingham, Ala., didn't believe it when a woman summoned for jury duty told them her name was Jesus Christ.

But the former Dorothy Lola Killingworth said she had a legal name change and showed her driver's license to prove it.

Some other potential jurors laughed out loud when Jesus Christ's name was called. But Ms. Christ won't be sitting in judgement in a criminal case.

Court officials tell The Birmingham News Jesus Christ was excused for being disruptive. They say she was asking questions instead of answering them.
