Yes, it is a very interesting and "blessed" coincident that the father of the 4 year old heavenly sojourner is a pastor. That way, he can interpret his son's ramblings correctly. Now excuse me, I think I need to go throw up.
Does it seem less than coincidental to anyone that in at least one of the "little boy goes to heaven books" the boy in question was the son of a Xtian clergyman? (I dunno about the other book because I didn't have the stomach to investigate another one.) I do think that there's a huge Xtian market out there and if you can't cut it competing in the regular marketplace with your book, your recording, your painting, or whatever, you might stand a better chance if you declare yourself a Xtian and sell your "art" in that market. Suppose Burpo and Malarkey thought of that?
I was reading Gene Weingarten's column in the Washington Post today, (http://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle /magazine/the-pearly-gate-crasher-gene -weingarten-goes-to-his-reward/2011/03 /25/AF6FBQjD_story.html) and it caused me to look up the books he was discussing. I had a quick look at the descriptions of the books on Amazon and then went right to the comments. What I found especially amusing is the 1-star comments and the responses to those comments. Just a great example of good christian folks attacking their own when they don't stay in line.
