So, this anti-Mormon author (you know, the kind with a serious axe to grind against the Church) wrote a controversial book full of untruths and lies (and had the NERVE to call it fiction, even!), and horrible portrayals of Mormons that could NEVER POSSIBLY be true, and she set up some signings.
One of those was in Utah County. As she drove to this signing, her car began to overheat. The closer she got to the heart of HAPPY VALLEY, and God’s chosen people, the higher the gauge went. Finally, in American Fork, the needle hit the red, the oil light went on and panic set in. She veered off the freeway, frightened her car was going to burst into flames and headed to a remote spot to try to let it cool down.
It did not.
It stayed hot.
She called the bookstore and told them she would be late.
Waited longer. It started to cool off, then ZOOMED back up the closer she got to Provo! Finally, she gave up. Pulled over. Called for help and went into a local fast food restaurant to wait for help, which was a long way away.
After about 40 minutes, she went back to the car, and started it. The temperature gauge was at halfpoint. So she started back TOWARD home, away from God’s Happy Spot, and the gauge NEVER climbed back up again.
Once again, GOD protected the Mormons from HEATHENS.
Send this to everyone you know….
(Disclaimer: If one really WANTED to explore this, one could assume that GOD was protecting the author from dismal book sales and nasty looks, and possibly worse. In fact, if one REALLY wanted to disect this, one would wonder why God did not take such drastic measures with said author’s car when author was signing at the Borders in the very SHADOW of the SLC Temple. Also, because of said car not behaving very well, the AUTHOR is now driving a much newer and much nicer car, so technically, all in all, this worked out MUCH better for her. But one might not want to think about all that if one is the non-thinking type given to believing Faith Promoting Rumors.)
