In its role as the fair & balanced news media version of the 700 Club, Fox News never wastes an opportunity to show that if you're right with Jesus, miracles can happen. Back in June, Fox's morning bible show featured an entire week of testimony from good Christians who died, went to heaven, met Jesus, and came back to earth to spread the word. One of those celestial voyagers was Pastor Don Piper who told his tale to Ainsley Earhardt who was just fit to bursting about how awesome this was. And just in case you missed it the first time, Piper was back on this morning's Fox & Friends where he received warm, Fox Christian affirmation, praise Roger Ailes!
The opening graphic, used for the June trippers, was a shot of clouds with the words, "To Heaven & Back" which, interestingly, is similar to the title of JRR Tolkien's book, the Hobbit, which chronicled a journey that was just as fantastical as those described on Fox! The Fox hosts provided some background to Pastor and Mrs. Pastor's story which is now detailed in a new book.
The chyron provided the patented Fox shout out to the "power of spirituality" and noted that Mrs. Piper "reconnected with God" after her husband's car crash. Eva Piper said that she wrote the book because it involved a story that "people wanted to hear." Alisyn Camerota described how, after Pastor's "out of body experience," he went through a hard time. He spoke of his sadness, during his difficult rehabilitation, because he couldn't stay in heaven. Tucker Carlson, whose extraordinary Christianity is exemplified by his comment that he "despises" the Episcopal Church because it is full of "pompous, blowhard, pagan creeps" (and gays), asked about how the experience deepened the Piper's relationship to God. Mrs. Piper spoke about her husband's "experience" in heaven which she didn't find out about until sometime into Pastor's rehab.
Tucker Carlson asked what it's like in heaven. Piper responded "awesome" (well, of course, for a Christian pastor it wouldn't be anything else, would it?) As the chyron noted how Pastor is "Full of Faith," he spoke of how, in heaven, he was greeted by people whom he knew in life. (Including the a-holes?) And for those of you who worry about having bad hair days in heaven, he said that everybody looked good. (They must have good hairdressers up there!) He described the "magnificent gate" which was one of twelve. (Interesting image that, coincidentally corresponds to the image in Revelation). He raved about the high end real estate. (Heaven as a gated community, wow. Wonder if they let black folks live in those "magnificent dwellings?") He spoke about the music. (No rap, one assumes) Alisyn Camerota gushed "it sounds wonderful but let's not rush it." Clayton Morris urged readers to buy the book.
All I can say is that watching Fox & Friends is a really bad (hellacious?!) trip!!!!
She’s far more credible that these dipshits. And, besides….her ‘trips’ can be verified! (if you dare!)
Guess the study that came out about this earlier in the week must have sent the Foxies into a bit of a frenzy.
