Is This How One Summons God?

The co-pilot of a packed Heathrow-bound plane had to be dragged screaming from his cockpit after apparently suffering a mental breakdown in mid-air.

Horrified passengers on the flight from Canada saw the man being pinned down by fellow crew members as he yelled loudly and demanded to "speak to God".

The co-pilot was shackled by his ankles and handcuffed to a seat as the jet was forced to make an emergency landing at the Republic of Ireland's Shannon Airport.

Some questions:
-Why does it seem like the invocation of God is attached to situations such as this?
-What would be your thoughts if you were on that plane?
-Do you think it was handled appropriately or should protocol be ammended?
-What do you think caused this man to act like he did an hour from landing the plane?
