Much Ado about NOTHING

My Xmas Story

A small-town, teen-aged girl -- a religious fanatic -- becomes pregnant. (Possibly after being raped by a passing soldier -- that was the rumor, anyway.)

The townspeople are scandalized, and the traumatized girl and her boyfriend are advised to leave town.

They travel to another small town, and, short of money, are given shelter in a barn, where the baby is born.

The girl thinks, "There has to be a reason for all this!" and decides that God must have big plans for this kid.

And the rest is history, or anyway, His story.


Which story is more believable, this one or the jazzed-up one in the bible?
