Poke the sacred cows of Southern Baptists and make them moo

I know talking about politics and religion is the first step on a very slippery slope. One loses friends, and even family gets mad when these subjects are delved into deeply. So you can understand that I am approaching this subject with a great deal of apprehension. But some how when the religious subject is Baptists, humor takes on a new meaning. Thank the Lord, Baptists are generally good natured and instead of slaying their detractors, they pray for them.

Let’s hope ‘em Baptists are in that mode, today. Slouching toward Zion and More Lies written by Robert Flynn published by the University of North Texas Press is a collection of twenty-three stories that have hope, faith, and love as their common denominator. They are funny, political, and more than a bit prophetic. In addition, they are very well told. Flynn’s mission is “to poke them sacred cows and make them moo.”
