Oh that Fun Guy in the Sky The Innocent Bystander By Arthur Hoppe People magazine has come out with "The 25 Most Intriguing People of'86." They're a great bunch. Among the intriguers this year are Oliver North, Tom Cruise, Ivan Boesky, Max Headroom. Pat Robertson, Chief Justice Rehn- quiat and Howard the Duck- 4 along with a number of intriguing people ^^ ^l_\m I never heard \ "^P ■ Each ofthe 25 4* was represented by a large photo of him, her or itself singing, dancing, smiling, waving or just looking grim. Daniel Ortega rated two as befits the leader of a government fighting for its life in an all-out civil war. One is a double-truck shot of Nicaragua's president squatting in tall grass while he holds an ominous AK-47 automatic rifle. He's wearing a New York Mets rap and T-shirt. In the other, he's out in the backyard pushing a wheelbarrow loaded with four of his eight laughing children as his smiling common-law wife leans on his shoulder. I think it's a crying shame that God didn't make the cut. The magazine's editors had dummied in an intriguing piece on God. It featured a full-page pic of God touching fingertips with Adam The caption read: "Everybody's favorite guy hasn't lost the old spark." The copy was written by one of People's hottest writers. I was fortunate enough to obtain a computer readout. The text follows: "Everybody wants to talk to him ... Men want to be like him. and women want to be near him .. . He's got box office written all over him."That's what celebrity circuit biggies are saying about God. It looks likethecreatorofthiswonder- ful, wacky world we live in may be on the verge of scaling new heights in his long career. There's no question he's been on a downer the last decade or so (there are even reports he'd passed on), and those around him were getting the jitters. Rut now he's bark on top ofthe charts, showing doubting Thomases the staying power of a real trouper. "I'm just glad to he alive," he says with a warm grin. Though he's won a zillion kudos for his speedy and inspired creation ofthe universe—"awesome," as one fan put it—he remains modest about his accomplishment. "Just lucky, I guess." he tells friends, ducking bis head. He gets his share ofthe pans, too. (The recent escape of volcanic gas in Cameroon is a good example.) But he can take it on the chin. He likes to show visitors that plague on his wall that says. "You can't learn without trying!" Sometimes seen as remote and even occasionally wrathful, those close to him insist he's really "an average Joe" who likes nothing better than tossing a frishee for his Irish setter. Big Red. "He's resolutely down home," one associate said. "Anyone can talk to him." Though he never married, he's a devoted father. The apple of his eye is his only son, who rose from humble beginnings (just like a Horatio Alger hero, to become a founder of the well- known Christian church. And it's no accident that in his best selling "New Testament" (the inspiration of a dozen Hollywood epics), the proud dad hardly mentions anyone else. A hard worker (he's the only tree- maker in tbe business!, he likes to play, too. His main hobby is doing miracles. to which he brings his own special magic. And he loves to relax listening to his musical group, the ever-popular "Heavenly (.hoir." The only thing that now stands between him and international celeb rity status, experts say, is his well- known reluctance to appear on T-shirts, lunch boxes or talk shows or to make those much-sought-after endorsements. But if he can just get over his shyness, they say. 19H7's going to he a banner year for God. c 1986 (S F.)
