Jesus Like a Stinger
March 27, 2013
Every time I see a person in New York who uses religion as a launching pad for their own special fireworks of crazy, I always think of Flannery O’Connor’s novel Wise Blood
, where she describes the preacher as “a waspish old man who had ridden over three counties with Jesus hidden in his head like a stinger.” This particular insane person, a regular on the subway, has a well-thumped bible, a Jamaican accent, and the nuance of a foghorn. Click the pic for more Jesus.
