God-1, Jim Caviezel-0
When I went to bed last night, I was in a theological rut. Does God really exist? I mean, what sort of benevolent deity would allow Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen to be gazillionnaires, and force his pal Drew to sift through the $5.88 rack of DVDs at Walmart? I pleaded "give me a sign tomorrow, o Lord, or I'm gonna consider requesting a brochure from L. Ron Hubbard."
Jim Caviezel was subsequently struck by lightning.
Yup, on the set of Mel Gibson's controversial "The Passion", where Jimbo is playing Jesus, the movie's producer noticed that after the Zeusian bolt hit the lesser JC, "smoke was coming out Caviezel's ears".
Message received, loud and clear.
He's a kinder supreme being than I. If I was the man upstairs, I would've turned his ass to a pillar of salt a couple of years back for Pay It Forward.
