..YES!!! And the irony is lost on them!
Who knows, if the teenage Stanley Ann, plaything of a polygamist, had gotten unexpectedly pregnant today, little Barry might never have been born -- and THEN where would we be without our 'postracial' messiah? Or better yet, where would HE be (at the bottom of a vacuum jar?).
I doubt that his holiness was ever in jeopardy. He was needed alive to fulfill his primary mission, as an “IN YOUR FACE!” statement to the man who named her Stanley.
I have also no doubt that his awareness of this role plays an major part in making him who and what he is today.
