“Greetings, favored one!” announced the angel Gabriel to Rev. Smith today after appearing unexpectedly in his living room. “Do not be afraid, Brendan, for you have found favor with God. You will become pregnant and give birth to a daughter, and shall name her Anna” “How can this be,” Brendan asked the angel, “since I’m, like, a dude?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Daughter of God.” Smith slowly backed away from the angel, fumbled for his cell phone and began to dial 911.
