Meet Jesus Murphy, the alter–ego of a gentle man with a tortured religious upbringing. In an attempt to exorcise these demons, Murphy – an evangelical atheist – incisively and hilariously tears a strip off God, fellow-Catholics, the Four Horsemen, Mother Theresa, Puff Daddy and anybody else who unwittingly provokes his ire. Except Muslims. Jesus doesn’t know the first thing about Muslims. A riotous, risky and penetrating examination of Catholic fundamentalism.
