"I'm A Christian And You Suck!"
Essentially what loopy "born again" evangelist Stephen Baldwin is saying to Bono in his new book. From a Salon piece by Lauren Sandler:

"The Unusual Suspect" features an open letter to Bono, lambasting him for lobbying for debt relief for developing countries instead of preaching the gospel on MTV. Bono must be in league with Satan, whom Baldwin spends a lot of time thinking about. "I am smart enough to know that Satan is alive and well today," he writes. "Satan has all kinds of power, and he is able to control the minds of anyone whose mind isn't controlled by God." Baldwin's theology -- and criticism of secularists and Christian poseurs like Bono -- is written with remarkable confidence for someone who can only recite six of the Ten Commandments and four of the Twelve Apostles.

Don't laugh (or choke) -- he's been named a cultural advisor to President Bush, and it wasn't by somebody playing a newscaster on Saturday Night Live.

Hucksterism: It Never Goes Out Of Style.

Maybe Stevie can star in the remake of "Elmer Gantry."

I hadn't heard anything about this....wait a tick - the supporting actor of Bio-Dome is a "born-again culteral advisor to the president"?

May the Flying Spaghetti Monster in His Infinite Noodly Wisdom have mercy on their poor, Satan-infested souls.

Are 'Satan' and 'God' code words for prescription meds?

It takes a stupid, stupid man to make Bono look smart.

Hey, give Stephen a break. He just found out his father is Burt Young.
