The Mister Rogers of Deities

I didn't want him to be there, when that happened. That was just mortifying for me, as a hip intellectual agnostic who really hoped to become a devotee of more Eastern religions. So when I found Jesus there, it was just really a nightmare. It was like the Mister Rogers of deities. But it's different when I call on him [now].
