Fox News has discovered genuine divine intervention. The same God who apparently can’t be bothered to save millions of starving and diseased children did take time out of his busy day to stop a boulder from crashing through a church in Massachusetts.
Was divine intervention at play here? We’ll let you decide.
On Fox and Friends this morning, we heard from a Massachusetts pastor whose church was nearly crushed by a huge boulder. The Grace Ministries Church was right in the path of a 20-ton boulder that started rolling downhill after a blast at a nearby construction site.
The blasting company was working behind the church, widening a driveway for additional parking.
The whole thing was captured on video and it has been viewed on YouTube more than 70,000 times in the last few days. Pastor Rick LeClair said this morning he’s not a believer in luck and coincidences.
He explained that if the boulder had gone just a few more feet it would have slammed through the church’s food pantry that is used to feed thousands of needy folks each month.
Okay, so if you’re not a believer in luck and coincidences, that means that God meant to burn Touchdown Jesus to the ground in Cincinnati a few years ago, right? And he intended to let the giant Jesus statue in Brazil get struck by lightning, too. And when a thunderstorm knocked out a stained glass window in a church in Tennessee a few years ago the night of a “pray for rain” rally, God chose to let that happen, right? But your church, it’s just so darn special that God had to turn off the X Box and get involved, is that your position?
And it’s especially absurd that he thinks God did this to save their food pantry because they feed thousands of people with it (though good on them for doing so). Are the thousands of people fed by your food pantry more valuable to God than the millions and millions of starving and malnourished children in Africa? I mean, they’re probably white, so maybe so. But that’s kinda sick, don’t you think? That he went out of his way to make sure those people get fed but won’t lift a divine finger to help vast numbers of others?
