Annals of Delusion


Julie Scheving, a 46-year-old resident of Holland, Mich., doesn't believe the decision to open "The Da Vinci Code" on May 19 happened by chance—she believes it was an act of God. The movie opens on her birthday, and Scheving, a born-again Christian, is planning on using the occasion to buy tickets for at least a dozen of her "unchurched" friends. Though the movie's claims about Christianity run contrary to Scheving's beliefs, she's looking forward to initiating a discussion about the true nature of Jesus Christ.
. . . including, presumably, the fact that He arranges movie openings to suit her personal convenience. What a Guy.

I do feel sorry for all the born-again Christians whose birthdays don't fall on May 19. How sad that God has deprived them of their chance at evangelism.
