Taking his cue from The Screwtape Letters (don’t tell me you haven’t read The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis?!!), Fr. Dwight Longenecker has a senior tempter instructing junior tempters on how useful pop culture and political leaders can be. Despite himself, just like the more-candid-and-revealing-than-he-knows Screwtape, Slubgrip says a lot about the delusions that are necessary to keep a person from repairing his relationship with God. Or, for that matter, that keep him from being able to live with his neighbor without hatred and bloodshed.
Satirical and flavored with somewhat vile humor, yes. But priceless.
(If that doesn’t get you to check out the link, I guess I don’t know what might… 😉 )
