did you try quoting the string instead of escaping it?  I don't think this
is going to be trivial to fix without having at it, but I also haven't read
through the code in a month-plus.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
