"I'm tired of conducting services in praise and worship of a senile delinquent--yeah, that's what I said, I shouted All your Western theologies, the whole mythology of them, are based on the concept of God as a senile delinquent and, by God, I will not and cannot continue to conduct services in praise and worship of this...this...this angry, petulant old man."
--The Rev. T. Lawrence Shannon, from The Night of the Iguana
