    Remember James Frey?

    No?

    He was the guy who wrote that book A Million Little Pieces about his supposed life overcoming addiction, went on Oprah, became famous, then was found out to be a fraud, went back on Oprah to apologize, and became even more famous.

    Still don't recall the name? That's ok.

    Anyhow, the guy is back in the news again. This month he has a book out titled The Final Testament of the Holy Bible. In it Frey attempts to move, enrage, and enthrall readers with a new mythology about the messiah in modern day New York. The book is an orgy [literally] of blasphemy...as much as Frey could muster. But it is the reaction to this blasphemy that is beginning to get interesting.

    Consider this review out of the UK...

    How cute. The blasphemers are now scrapping with each other about the worthiness of their blasphemy!

    It seems we have reached somewhat of a postmodern milestone. We have actual competitive refutation within the ranks of the heretical agenda. It's sort of like the wicked antithesis of "iron sharpening iron."

    Sorry Frey. You've been had and now it appears you need to repent. The question is: TO WHOM?

    Eh....this is unfortunate, the Biblical accounts of Jesus' earthly ministry are exciting enough aren't they?

    That is really odd.

    Apparently we need to update the stories by adding in Jesus' drug addictions and homosexual lifestyle. :barfy:

    And impregnating women, and defying the government, but being a healer and social advocate.
