Sub-culture surprise

Things you don't say to your wife, from "Christian comedian" Tim Hawkins has been going around, but I'm partial to favorite Bible verse and scary bedtime prayer. This worship song parody is very much an inside joke (you have to know the songs). So far as I can tell, Hawkins mocks evangelicalism with affection, and that's what makes it funny. Refusing to cut the strings of endearment is also what makes Marsden's scholarship so illuminating.

Let the bitter beware.
