A Simple Guide to Christianity

At last.

Actually, this is probably funniest for those of us who are already familiar with the particularities of Americans' favorite pastime. The intro is stiff and possibly even pedantically wrong, so you may as well skip it and get to the funny. Sample:
For many years, American scholars believed the Orthodox were, like leprechauns, unicorns, and Eskimos, purely the product of the fanciful imaginations of medieval writers. Recent evidence leads us to tentatively conclude, however, that Eastern Orthodoxy may have somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 million adherents. Protestants tend to see the Orthodox as "Catholics with beards," while Catholics confess to a haunting sense that they are simply "Orthodox without beards."
Via Jim Henley, I think. Whom largely I ignored for years due to his libertarianism, a bent for which I have little patience. But he's really proven himself a principled one, and he's got a picture of his dog, all too lacking from the left blogosphere. So check him out, too.
