As America's foremost Christian network, Fox News wants you to know that Christian heaven is a very real place where very special people get to visit, on a one-day pass and then return so that they can share their experiences to very credulous Fox hosts including alleged straight news blonde Megyn Kelly. Celestial voyagers are quite popular on Fox & Friends which has featured a number of stories about the journey there and back again - including one which was made into a book and a movie. One of the day trippers is Pastor whose visit to a gushing Ainsely Earhardt in April of 2013 was followed by an encore Fox & Friends appearance in August. His book sales must have slowed down because he returned to Fox & Friends for the third time, this Tuesday, for more gushing from Elisabeth Hasselbeck over his "miraculous" trip.
Hasselbeck introduced her segment as part of Fox & Friends "To Heaven and Back" series. She described Pastor Piper's 90 minute journey to heaven and, da-ta, referenced his book about the "miraculous" voyage. Hasselbeck told Piper that "so many people have been affected with your story and your writing" and encouraged him to tell his story. Piper said that he was on his way to church when the accident happened and he was declared legally dead. During this time, according to Piper, he went to heaven and met up with his relatives. The chyron described this meeting as "reuniting in faith." As he spoke, Fox described, as Fox Fact, Piper's "magnificent memory." Piper said that he was greeted by his grandfather who "looked good" and somehow managed to grow back his missing fingers. Piper assures us that we will be "perfect" in heaven. (Oh, to be a size 6 again!)
Hasselbeck informed us, as Fox Fact, that the reason for Piper's return is clear because his story, which is contained in his new and improved book, has "affected so many." To Hasselbeck's question of whether heaven is worth the wait, Piper did some Christian proselytizing in informing us that we can get there if we get with Jesus. The chyron described Piper as "Full of Faith." Hasselbeck summed it up: "one incredible story affecting millions across the globe and [she pointed to the ceiling] and beyond."
Lizzy is not the brightest flashlight in the drawer. We are surprised if she could find her way to the ladies room at this horrid skyscraper.
