You're not gonna believe this; but, Fox's old time gospel hour, otherwise known as Fox & Friends, rounded out its miracle week with - drum roll please - two pieces about those who made a round trip to heaven and back - which is the title of both segments. On Wednesday, Fox friend Ainsley Earhardt spoke to a Christian pastor who got through the pearly gates and returned to tell the tale. Yesterday, Steve Doocy interviewed a young man who made the round trip when he was four. This the same kid who, in 2010, told a grinning Gretchen Carlson that he met Jesus during his celestial vacay which is the basis for his book, "Heaven is for Real." And today, the gang on the curvy couch spoke with a woman who went to heaven and was sent back home with marching orders. What can ya say!!!!
Yesterday, Doocy gushed over Colton Burpo's book and asked about his trip to heaven. The chyron: "A Divine Experience, One Child's Trip to Heaven and Back." Doocy asked him what he saw and responded to his own question: "You saw Jesus, didn't you." Burpo described being in the presence of Jesus as like being with your best friend. The chyron reinforced the story as Fox fact: "A Miraculous Meeting, Colton saw Jesus, St. John the Baptist" and "Life After Death, Colton Tells of Meeting Sister and Grandpa."
For those of you who are concerned about post moral wrinkles and sagging skin, fear not. Colton said that everybody is "in your young body, late 20's and early 30's" except for children and miscarried fetuses who age in heaven "until they get to that age." Colton's happy meeting with his miscarried sister (who was waiting for him at the gates) was offered, by Colton's pastor dad, Todd Burpo, as proof of his credibility because, according to Pastor Burpo, Colton didn't know about this child.
Doocy said that it is "very uplifting and affirming to know that there is a heaven, you've seen it with your own soul." Todd said that doubters should take comfort in the reality of heaven because of Colton's "honest" and "reliable" witnessing of it. He mentioned that Colton's story is being made into a movie.
Today's magical mystery tour featured a woman who had "an incredible story" about a doctor who drowned and spent fourteen minutes in heaven before she came back. She tells the tale in her book, "To Heaven and Back." Steve Doocy gushed over this "great story" which includes Mary Neal meeting angels. When she said that she didn't want to return, Alisyn Camerota added that "it was so beautiful and so all loving that you didn't want to come back."
As Neal described the instructions that she was given, while in heaven, the visual listed "tasks spirits gave Dr. Neal." She spoke about how, if you look for God, God will "work in your life." When she said that accepting the "truth" about "the promises of God," can radically change your life," Tucker Carlson murmured "I bet." A credulous and very Christian Steve Doocy said, as he did about Colton Burpo's story, that her story is "life affirming" because it "shows what's waiting for ya."
If there is a heaven, will Roger Ailes be seated at the right hand of the father?
I can’t wait for Fox to have her on!
Maybe Jesus knew I was Jewish.
With all my HEAVENLY love,
