More religious silliness. As if the gullible hordes singing the praises of the
Pope weren’t enough, The Decadent West has an article about a South Dakota couple who are pimping candles that supposedly give out the scent of Christ’s garments. Sayeth the He-Pimp of the “His Essence” candlemaking scam:
“You can’t see him and you can’t touch him,” says Bob Tosterud. “This is a
situation where you may be able to sense him by smelling. And it provides a
really new dimension to one’s experience with Jesus.”
The Decadent West asks a pertinent question about this scam:
What’s the bigger crime: selling this shit in the name of Jesus or a priest
telling some altar boy the only way he can receive Communion is if he drinks it
from the spigot?
Hey, at least little Johnny’s getting a Holy low calorie treat and his daily
dose of protein. For free! “His essence”, indeed.
