You've found Father McKenzie. But are you really looking for Eleanor Rigby?

STAND-UP, STAND-UP FOR JESUS... Interesting piece in The New Yorker about "edgy" Christian comedian Brad Stine:

"He aimed most of his barbs at liberals and unbelievers, but Christians took flak, too. He did an impression of a Protestant, whining, “Satan made me lose my job!” (“No—your incompetence made you lose your job!”), and made fun of churches that organize “Harry Potter” book burnings (“Here’s a good rule of thumb: If Hitler tried it—maybe go the other way”)."

If you count Mark Steyn as a Christian -- which he apparently is, even though his columns are light on the God talk -- that makes two.
