One day after embattled South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford claimed that God was trying to make him a better person, the Almighty held a rare press conference to demand that Sanford "stop putting words in My mouth."

For the usually publicity-shy King of the Universe, the press conference held at the Chicago O'Hare Airport Marriott signaled a sharp break with tradition.
