“If the Blessed Virgin Mary was going to appear in a field in Alabama, and Nick Saban was going to appear, who do you think would draw the most people?” he said.

That’s a question asked in a rather astounding, as in an I-can’t-believe-they-went-there sort of way, Birmingham News article about God, Nick Saban and Facebook by one Stephen Jones, senior pastor at Birmingham’s Southside Baptist Church.  Jones is a 1977 Auburn graduate, by the way.

I’m sure a copy will be available on black velvet from a roadside art show from the back of a pickup near those of you who live in Alabama soon, however.
