Stephen Glass, Prophet?
A reader writes:
Andrew, this "Jesus camp" makes me think Stephen Glass was just a little ahead of his time. Remember one of his fake stories was "Peddling Poppy", in which he describes his visit to the "First Church of George Herbert Walker Bush Christ", run by a group of evangelicals who thought "41" was the reincarnation of Jesus.
Ah, yes, Stephen Glass. Ewww. But you need Twain or Mencken to capture today's religious right accurately. And Glass was and is no Mencken.
