Just a Coincidence? Or More?

Interesting.

That painting [at this link] by Charles Chambers is titled The Light of the World. Many years ago, a print of that painting hung in a first-grade classroom. But then the Supreme Court forbade religion in public schools, which meant the painting of baby Jesus had to go, and so the teacher took it home with her. Years later, the teacher gave it to her grand-daughter, who had just moved into an apartment with her boyfriend.

One day when her boyfriend was gone, she was home alone when a fire destroyed their apartment, and it was a miracle that she survived.

Her only possession that survived the fire? The Light of the World.

The owner of the picture is quoted thus:

Today I am a pro-life Roman Catholic, the mother of seven children, and this year my husband and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

Who is this person? Steven Tylor's ex.

Hmmmmm.

So the picture had magic in it?

You mean Tyler, right? Here's another take. Money quote: "Reproductive freedom isn't a guarantee against ambivalence."
