Reader: What if a presidential candidate believed in Scientology?

The Book of Mormon

has left town, but as Josiah Hesse shows in his

pop history of religious satire

, the world's religions have long served as inspiration -- whether the mockery involves

Mormons or Scientology


Says stevedenver:

If a presidential candidate believed in Scientology, then perhaps it would receive more attention.

Reminder: the movie "THE MASTER" is being released soon and is said to have a lot in common with the story of L. Ron Hubbard, daddy of Dianetics.

Watch for an interview with the director of The Master on westword.com later this week. In the meantime, post your thoughts on religious satire below.
