A Very Ironic American Tragedy


A wealthy white Christian musician adopts poor godless yellow baby from China.

How noble! Now she'll be raised in a big house with lots of "stuff."

But ironically, she'll be crushed to death in her own driveway by her big brother's SUV.

How incredibly tragic... how very American.

Jesus take the wheel, indeed.

I predict a huge hit on the Christian music charts for Mr. Chapman. He'll write it to ease the grief, of course. A Jesus-upped "Tears in Heaven," if you will.
