An atheist writer and a couple dozen Baptists walk into a bar.
Sounds like the beginning of a joke. And it just might be. The kind folks from Wilshire Baptist Church have invited Mike Mooney to come talk to them about why he is so awesome. That’s my description. They’ve titled the talk: “Religion and the Media: A Conversation with D Magazine‘s Mike Mooney.” And they’re meeting at the Corner Bar. Things get rolling around 7:30 tomorrow, by which time Mike will already be oiled, if I know him. The Baptists? Not sure.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about this engagement is the email press release. It included a link to Mike’s vanity site, which I didn’t know existed. And now I have lost myself in that wily, beard-shrouded smile of his.
