The Jesus Museum

This is less a museum—no, Jesus isn’t actually on the site—than an index of sites that reveal the insanity of some of the followers of what the site’s owner calls “that infamous dead wino.” There are links to sites such as a sort of Nick at Nite religious publishing house, where the Bible-study guides use episodes of vintage television shows like The Andy Griffith Show to provide examples. The site’s operator can be counted on for acerbic commentary, such as his analysis of a site that offers directions for “drive-by praying”: “If it works for the Crips, why not for the Christians!” Though the sites indexed here are not necessarily as hilarious as some parodies—Landover Baptist comes immediately to mind—in this case, reality often makes for a good laugh.
