The Wall Street Journal has an article behind its subscription wall called "Houses of Worship - Lambs With Chops" (tip from Joe Pop and Anton). Here is the last paragraph: As Mr. Joseph notes, Emmylou Harris, Bono, Al Green, Bob Dylan and even Alice Cooper -- once known for his on-stage guillotine -- have a positive spiritual influence. Mr. Cooper, as it happens, was a drinking partner of Mr. Lennon's, and his passionate warnings about the existence of the devil indicate that, sooner or later, many a rocky road leads to the 700 Club, or environs. For Messrs. Landis and Joseph, sooner is the goal.
