The Mainly Annual
EastWesterly Review/Postmodern Village
12th Annual Conference
Papers on Religion and Belief
Crap of God: Divine Punishment as California Mudslide, or Pat
Robertson as Accidental Postmodern Scion
by P.B. Wombat and Ty
Eschatology met scatology in this interactive presentation
of Wombat and Dieboll’s moving paper. The actual rain
around the presentation tents got things flowing, but a (simulated)
feces projecting satellite uplink dish filled us with the spirit.
A planned live interview with Robertson himself was canceled
when he learned we were all academics.
Was My Bridegroom: the Emergent Countermovement for Christian
by Mittens DuBois-Dugan
We knew that Sodom and Gomorrah had a bit o’ the naughty
in them, but Mittens too? All this time we thought those Bible
study groups were really studying the Bible, but it turns out
they were looking at nudie pics too. Ms. DuBois-Dugan exposes
(ahem) the steamy side of Christianity with the “for procreational
use only” marital aids and movies that she now sells at
her Bible study group.
Jesus: the Soteriology of Buckminster Fuller in the Era of the
MegaChurch, or God Bless My Buckyballs!
by Robert N. Satchel
Bruised Christian progressives and reasonable “blue
state” people everywhere have long tried to explain the
alarming boom of charismatic, theologically retrograde megachurches
using everything from demographics to the sociology of spiritualism.
But Satchel’s contention that the Religious Right owes
as much to New Age architectural voodoo as to its reliance on
catchy Christian Rock tunes implies a deal with the devil that
makes our twinkling neopagan toes tingle. Geodesic Jesus meets
Pyramid Power meets The da Vinci Code, and James Dobson
loses. Now how can we channel all those energy beams into getting
the fundies to unelect Bush? Perhaps it will happen about the
same time our collective wills will successfully raise the Pentagon.
Holmes and Gardens: How Scientology has Improved the Breed,
or Celebrity Sperm and the Salvation of the “Cruise Missile”
by C. Orgway
The sexually ambiguous Orgway had a hard time convincing us
Scientology skeptics that the Top Gun’s erratic behavior
of late is just a ploy to drill a crop of higher quality Hollywood
types. But we did sign up for the free “personality tests.”
What harm could it do?
