Half the people you meet not only believe in angels but claim to have actually experienced their influence. Nope this is not from a country that burns witches ( I can’t say yet, maybe at this time is safer) or riots because they believe their football game were cursed but from the USA #1 in debt since , well let’s not confuse a stupid population with the current financial crisis ;), since it was worked out that you can do just about anything here and then pull out an angel to justify your actions.
By now you’ve guessed that we’re not talking about Curtis and his gang but the kind of bright light, flappy flappy harp playing goody two shoes types that schlep around carrying messages from the “Almighty” , whose omni presence doesn’t stretch to a decent two way communication system with his creation apparently, and seemingly are there to give you a push , a warning or whatever help you may need to stay out of harms way. Here’s a fun story I like to relate about a marketing manager at a prior company ( a few back) that crashed her car on the way back to the office after lunch.
Her eyes were closed while driving . There wasn’t a foreign object in there, not squinting from the sun or taken by a sudden bout of narcolepsy but.. they were closed because she was praying. Guess what ? She felt lucky that she was praying as the accident could have been so much worse OTHERWISE! 55% Adults , Voters, Drivers, EEP!
In a poll of 1700 respondents, 55% answered affirmatively to the statement, “I was protected from harm by a guardian angel.”
