it was amazing
Recommended to Darkness by: well Bob himself, who else?
Recommended for: any cynic ot perspective mainstream religious student
Read in January, 1990

Bob is the culmination of years of conspiracy, cynical anti-religion and fringe culture wrapped into one well dressed pipe smoking persona of the '50's perfect man. The church never takes itself seriously, and expects no-one to do anything less.
While I myself am ordained, I support the 'movement' only for its basic philosophy and credence; "Fuck em if they can't take a joke".

The sacred teachings is a fantastic pulp fiction read, but has the convenient structure to serve as more then effective (and humorously colorful) 'doctrine' then the book of Moromon; even has a far more colorful history.

No other movement has the gumption to afford its ministers the ability to perform marriages, exorcisms, and guarantee a seat on the trip off the planet when the proverbial shit hits the fan.

So take that last hit of Frop, pass the 'Church Air' and sit back for and wait for the next X-day.
