Oh dear. A little too close to reality, actually...
Thanks for sharing this Vic. Lots of laughs.

eerily close to reality... ever seen the crystal cathedral in California?

Yikes. This makes me sick. Lord have mercy!

Each year, the Crystal Cathedral puts on two major pageants: "The Glory of Christmas." (in December), and "The Glory of Easter" (in March). These dramatic religious spectacles blend religion & show-biz; they feature a cast of 200 in Biblical period costumes, a choir, flying "angels," live animals, and joyous music from a 70-piece orchestra. (You haven't been to church until you've seen live camels walking up the aisle, and an "angel" flying overhead on wires!)

I love it when a culture can effectively parody itself. I hope at least one megachurch attendee got the right message out of that. I've heard some stories about the Mega churches from my American friends: they've cancelled church on Sundays on Christmas so families could stay home and open presents since only one hundred or two hundred people were showing up for the Christmas services.

(Senor ten piedad, I remember that one)

"But the Lord was watchin' out for me - sent my wifer to taser me in the shower." Best line ever!
