I found this on Drudge; which is awesome. Thank you, Matt Drudge!

However; there is no reason for Megyn Kelly’s timeslot change to trump this story as the most important story. The implications of a verified supernatural occurrence with multiple witnesses cannot be overstated.

  1. My guardian angel and my kids’ angels work overtime, but usually invisibly. I do know that two of my aunts have had encounters of this sort.

  2. I’m a rationalist so I have a natural tendency to disprove stuff like this and work hard at it. The problem is it happens all the dang time. Not believing is irrational.

  3. BTW, this sort of story is why I’m very careful about saying anything bad about the RCC. That way just lies stupid. One of the arguments that nearly won me over to their cause was:
    “You never see a Presbyterian minister in a vampire movie.” (1)

    This is an oddly powerful argument. It speaks to some sort of cultural gestalt that I’m not willing to argue with.

    (1) Yes, yes, I know there are counter examples but by and large it is true.

    If it can be disproved somehow (say, all the rescue workers and the lady were in lying cahoots) it would be worth it to do so. The problem is not in the testing, but in irrational rejection when the story is found to be true.

    I’ll blow right past the absurdity of movies and vampires as a legitimate arguments, and concur with the idea behind it.

    They don’t say the priest himself said he was Catholic. Our Anglican priest looks just like ’em. I think we can say that they’ve definitely got the attire right, though. Take a lesson, Baptists. Ha!

    Now that I’m thinking about it: It seems plausible to me that an angel of comfort would show up in the attire that the person to be comforted would be most comforted by. For a Catholic/Anglo-Catholic: white collar and black shirt; for Texas Baptists: Xtreme Jesus shirt and cargo shorts; for California Non-Dom: flip-flops and cut-offs.

  5. For my aunt, it was a well dressed 30ish man with a navy uniform in a dry cleaning bag in the back of his car. She’d been run off the road by an emergency services vehicle when the Air Florida flight crashed into the Potomac. He was the first guy to stop and offer help that looked safe. Gave his name, an unusual one. She tried to look him up for the local radio station’s “Good Samaritan” award but the Navy Personnel office had no record of him.
