Ex-Bandit Dan McNally and the Jailhouse Conversion old time religion Charles Colson Paris Hilton Bernard Madhoff
"Ex-Bandit" Dan McNally shills his appearance in Minneapolis with his street creds!
Once the state learned it was less expensive to throw in a Bible than to replace a sink torn from the cell wall by an unruly convict, encouraging religious conversion behind bars has been a good strategy. Parole boards take a very suspicious attitude about such claims...so do I. Other famous (or infamous) claimed jailhouse conversions include Paris Hilton (at least she says she read the Bible during her time in the big house) and Bernard Madoff.
Now the best jailhouse conversion is of course Chuckie Colson. You know him...when folks demonstrated against the Vietnam War, they had to worry one of Chuck's goons illegally recruited from the Teamsters was going to knock their heads with clubs. He proposed firebombing the Brookings Institution. Eh...any man who was so despicable as to be known as NIXON'S hatchet man, for God's sake, can't get much worse...so anything is "up" including a questionable born-again claim. Just for the record, Chuck believes in God but he does not believe in Darwin (a later war-criminal President invited him to the White House to represent the "anti-science" position.) He opposes same-sex marriage (despite being divorced himself...as nearly half of "different-sex" marriages are) and despite being a felon was granted his voting rights back by another bright light on the political horizon...a THIRD Bush, the one in Florida who defaulted on a 4 million dollar loan and advocates "rock climbing" as one of his major accomplishments.
Are things really so bad in the Christian faith they need Chuckie to speak for them?
I am not sure, but maybe the postcards and brochures announcing a Colson appearance read "Ex-Creep"
