In addition to all those celestial journeys, during which the voyagers got to see white Jesus, Fox & Friends features miracles such when a toddler's cancer was cured by angels and an "angel" priest (who turned out to be quite corporeal) who appeared at the site of car crash. This morning, Fox's *between two ferns show (with Doocy and Kilmeade as the ferns) promoted another miracle involving a huge boulder which stopped just inches away from a Christian church. While it is undeniably a good thing that the church was not damaged and nobody got hurt, to ascribe the event to miraculous intervention is a bit of a stretch. But here's the thing. Considering that many churches have been damaged (many in the bible belt) by a variety of natural disasters, does this suggest that God plays favorites? Oh well, this is Fox & Friends where fact is fiction and miracles can happen!
As the chyron proclaimed, as Fox Fact, "Divine Intervention, Rolling Boulder Stops Inches Away From Church," while video of said boulder was shown, " Fox *fern Steve Doocy exclaimed "amazing." He reported on the backstory of how a massive boulder stopped before "destroying" a Christian church in Saugus MA. Elisabeth Hasselbeck exclaimed "amazing" and asked if it was "luck or was it a greater power at play here." She introduced her guest, the pastor of the church that was saved by "divine intervention?"
Pastor Rick LeClair said that he didn't "believe in luck or coincidence." He discounted the comment of a local reporter who suggested that the boulder was stopped by a small railing. As he spoke, more Fox Fact: "Miracle in Motion, Boulder Stops Just Short of Grace Ministries." Doocy moaned as LeClair said that if the boulder kept going, it would have dropped into the church's food pantry. More Fox Fact framed as a question: "Higher Power at Play, Boulder Would Have Hit Church's Food Pantry." More Fox Fact: "Greater Purpose, Church's Food Pantry Feeds Thousands." Doocy said "yeah" as LeClair described the boulder incident as "an angel putting his hand on that stone." After he talked about how miracles happen even when they're not asked for, Doocy exclaimed "this is probably that." In concluding, the pastor thanked Fox and told them that they "do a great job."
What's really miraculous is that Fox & Friends gets such great ratings when they validate stuff like this. Oh wait, what was it that PT Barnum said about the birth rates of suckers...???
Perhaps it was the guard rail.
Oh wait. Pastor said it was the invisible world.
Besides everyone knows that the last miracle occurred at Lake Placid, New York in 1980 during the Winter Olympics when the USA defeated the Soviet Union in ice hockey. Before that you have to go back to the 1969 New York Mets, and then that parting of the Red Sea thingy.
Call it a miracle or lucky if you wish. I’m just glad no one was hurt.
“A man was killed today in northern Italy when a cross devoted to John Paul II, the Polish-born pope who died in 2005 and will be made a saint this weekend, collapsed on top of him, news agency Ansa reported.
The cross, which stood in the village of Cevo to honor the late pontiff’s 1998 visit to the nearby city of Brescia, crushed the 21-year-old man, Ansa reported. "
