  1. Clearly you haven’t spent enough time in evangelical Sunday Schools. Every evangelical Sunday School used to use board with little flannel figures of our Lord and whomever. These flannel idols were attached to the board by static –I guess. I’m not claiming to know the physical properties of flannel boards.

    My point is that if Jesus can appear to evangelical children on the flannel board why can’t the BVM appear in loaves of bread? What’s the difference?

  2. Well, sheesh, the BVM is real — maybe even the 4th member of the Trinity. Flannel keeps you warm, but really, there is no comparison here. 😉
