It all brings back fond memories of Jimmy Swaggart jerking off and Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker and the secretary. Nobody hornier than a rich evangelical.

I remember back in '92, during an interview, Bill Clinton told a joke about being Southern Baptist vs. Hillary's Methodism. The difference between the two religions, he said, is that Methodists will acknowledge your presence when you meet each other buying booze on Sunday. That's the things about evangelicals vs. pretty much everyone else. Everyone else acknowledges in one fashion or another that they fuck up and that it's part of being human. Evangelicals, whatever the dogma about the need for divine forgiveness, assert a superiority that not only does their shit not stink, they don't even shit, and condemn everyone sitting on a toilet. I could respect evangelicals if they truly practiced the humility they claim they embrace, but they're a bunch of phony finger-wagging assholes whose true ideology is "for me, not for thee."

I read someone remark that there is a strain in American Catholicism that is deeply jealous of the prosperity gospel stuff, which seems to make sense for these types.

The in-laws of a friend are Catholic but never go to services or confession or anything like that. I asked him how do they have a relationship with god in their faith. He told me they said they can pray and repent and all that directly. You know, like Protestants.
