Ok... Time for the ultimate experiment in tolerance meets freedom of speech.
The idea isn't to ridicule any particular faith, religion, or religious figure... Although I'm sure it will happen. The idea isn't to bring rabid, angry religious fanatics out of the wood-work, frothing at the keyboard and spewing invective and biblical quotes in equal measure... Although I'm sure it will happen. The idea is simply to comingle the two most popular literary features of all time... Religion and sex.
The idea came to me when I made a comment about Anne Rice's new project. Evidently, she's found (or re-found) Jesus, and has said she will, from now on, only write for the Lord. A dear friend of mine said she loved Anne Rice's writing and storytelling style, and would read the new book, no matter what it was about. I replied, in part:
If the indication was that she was writing something serious and scholarly about the early life of Christ, sure... I'd give it it's due. But, at the end of the day, the work she seems to indicate she's writing here amounts to no more or less than a Jesus fan-fic.
It was literally only a few minutes from conception to a slightly pre-mature delivery.

Let's see what happens.
