Story Of Kid Going To Heaven A Big Fat Lie

You guys and gals may have already heard of this.

All I can think of off the top of my head is, You are just now figuring that out?

With the whole of religion being a case of make believe gone haywire, is it any surprise this story is more of the same? Just more stuff for the believers to ignore, along with all that damned evidence they don’t seem to care for. Say isn’t there something or other in the bible about being a big fat liar?

  4. Well, there are plenty of other uses for the material. Lining the bottom of the bird cage, training the puppy, or my favorite, a bit of paper to get my kindling going when I light a fire in the fireplace.

  5. I don’t think many like us were all too shocked. If anything I am shocked they admitted it. I guess the guilt trip became too much to handle and he just had to come clean.

  7. Mak, I am not used to seeing sarcasm from you, so I am forced to believe you may actually have bought this book then?

    So now I’m a bit confused, if you really bought the book how awful was it? If this is sarcasm, well played. I’ll have to keep an eye on you then 🙂

  8. After your post yesterday, I read several sources, including his mother’s blog post in April of 2013, to get a bigger picture of what went down. Apparently the kid fessed up about 2 years ago and told a pastor but the pastor told him to keep his trap shut as this story was a blessing to other people.

    The father was co-author, and apparently neither Alex or his mother, Beth, have received any money from the sale of the book. So, looks like daddy was profiting from this. Alex’s parents are divorced. Also, the kid, was only 6 at the time and had experienced severe brain trauma.

    Things are stinking but good. I suspect there will be more to come out of this story.

  9. Good thing there’s still that “heaven is for real” kid or whatever (the one they made the movie with Greg Kinnear about). Christians of the world can still delude themselves!

  12. Isn’t the x-ian mantra “never let a lie get in the way of making money?”

  13. Ok then, I’ll have to add sarcasm to Mak’s profile. I’ll put it right next to the last entry, “willing to try new things” (I have no idea how I remembered that one, it was from a comment in a post long ago, the topic long since forgotton)
