That was a pretty interesting little fact, though, if it was, in fact, a fact.

Ryan claimed he picked up the pet ferret -- which was a Christmas present to his older children -- and hurled it against the dishwasher, killing it. http://weirdnews.aol.com/2011/06/16...i_n_878244.html

Isn't Christianity by it's very nature, mystical? You have a talking snake, magic fruit, a virgin baby momma, water to wine, hand writing on the wall, wheels in the sky, predicting the future, a guy living after being eaten by a fish, ghosts, staffs turning into snakes, water from a rock, a sea parting, summoned floods, demon possessed pigs, magic bread and fish, giants, Horns of Blasting, people turning into salt, and a zombie ghost. And that's just a start.
