Boy Who Visited Heaven Is Mocked By MSNBC Host - 03-22-2011, 05:27 AM

This morning, on NBC’s top-rated show, “Today,” Matt Lauer spent considerable time with Colton Burpo, the young boy from Nebraska who claims that he visited heaven during an operation that saved his life.


Colton’s story became a New York Times, non-fiction, best-seller called “Heaven Is For Real.” But the Today Show was not the young man’s first big media interview, he’s been on other national tv shows including a Fox News Network appearance last Fall with Gretchen Carlson.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyOUv...layer_embedded
After this moving interview, the Colton Burpo story took a strange turn.

While doing some background interview for this story, I also stumbled into a clip of MSNBC‘s ’rising star’ Cenk Uygur. Prior to sliding into the 6pm slot on MSNBC, Uygur hosted an internet-based political opinion show called The Young Turks.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmaja...layer_embedded

Mr. Uygur is heard rudely laughing at the interview, and laughs loudest when the young boy is asked about seeing Jesus. Is this what MSNBC considers to be the right talent for their 6pm time slot? The young boy talks about seeing Jesus and mentions that Jesus large enough to hold everyone in his hands. Cenk Uygur seems to take great pleasure in mocking Colton Burpo’s experience. He also seems to be confused, claiming that the child said Jesus was an obese, blue-eyed man with a great smile.

Uygur mocked the the young boy, the family, Jesus, and Fox News for doing the story. I wonder how he feels about NBC and Matt Lauer dedicating almost seven minutes of prime morning airtime to what obviously is a captivating piece of news? After all, the New York Times put the boy’s book atop the Non-Fiction List. . . If the New York Times considers it to be true, why doesn’t Cenk Uygur?


Keep your head down and admire the shot.

People who claim to believe that the government can "stimulate" an economy by pissing away trillions of hard-working taxpayer's dollars have NO BUSINESS making fun of anyone else's beliefs.

How many of you believe that this boy actually did what he said. Personally, I'm going to have to say I don't. I'm more inclined to believe it was a dream influenced by his drug induced state during surgery.

There is an excellent book out there called...."90 minutes in heaven." It is written by Don Piper, and Cecil Murphy.....If you are so inclined, you can pick it up at Amazon.com for around nine bucks....It may not be everyone's cup o' tea, but it may suit some, just fine....

In the age of reality TV and stars with no talent, I think it's an outright hoax perpetrated by the entire family.

I take them both equally seriously.
Whis is to say, not at all seriously.

It seems that we are prone to laughing at and mocking those things which we don't fully understand, rather than taking the time to come to understand them. Colton is by no means alone in his experience. There are literally thousands of people who have had the same sort of experience. Anyone who thinks these experiences are a product of the brain or drugs just hasn't taken the time to read and comprehend even a small part of the mountains of evidence that clearly show otherwise. It's certainly your prerogative to remain ignorant, but it really isn't fair to those who have had these experiences and take the time to share them to laugh at them or mock them, just as it wouldn't be fair to laugh or mock someone for having gay experiences, psychotic experiences, depression experiences, loving experiences, violent experiences, or, really, any type of experience.

For anyone who is interested, there is no need to spend money to learn more. I can provide links to internet sites with free scientific and anecdotal evidence as well as ebooks that provide plenty of proof that we continue to exist after our bodies die. There's really no reason for anyone to approach this subject from a position of denial or ignorance any longer.
