I don't know, maybe it's because I like to sing gospel while paddling class IV whitewater. But seriously, that epithet goes way way back. One of my best friends back home, Woody, aka "Reverend Woodeye" and I have always been fans of the more outrageous wacky Radio and TV evangelists, most notably Jimmy Swaggart and Robert Tilton, and are part of a growing number of "Recreational Christianity" fans. We are co-founders of the annual labor day "Skate of Faith and Pub Crawl to Glory" in Houston.
Are you really a minister?
Well, actually, yes, I am. It's more of a paper thing than anything else. You too can become ordained on line by clicking here. And while your at it, check out my very own church:
"Sister Teresa's Apocalyptic Physics Temple and Gospel Polka Hut" (link to be added soon), or my list of online sermons
Aren't you worried what would happen to you for making fun of God?
If you pay attention, you will see that I never have, and never will "make fun of God". I fact (much to the chagrin of my atheist friends) I am a Christian. Also, as a member of Melba's Phone Militia we may occasionally poke fun at organized religion (particularly biggoted media ministers who presume to tell the rest of us how to live), but we believe in a God who, in addition to stupid things like the number of hairs on our heads, knows where we're coming from!! Just to be sure though, we asked, and God said it's OK.
So what is this "Cacophony Society"?
The Cacophony Society is an open network of creative malcontents, guerrilla artists, slackers, hooligans, kitsch-hounds, and anyone else interested in subverting primetime reality.
