Fringeist: Your Own Paedophile Jesus

2007_07_13jesus.jpg Jesus in Montana is a one-man show by Barry Smith detailing his actual experience as a young man of hitchhiking to Missoula, Montana where he moved in with an octogenarian claiming to be the Second Coming who also happened to be a convicted child molester. If that doesn’t sound very funny, you’ll just have to take Torontoist’s word for it that the results are actually often hilarious.
With the aid of an irreverent Power Point presentation, Smith details his experiences with hallucinogens and the Baha’i Faith. It’s strange to see someone who seems, well, like a normal enough person who was actually fully indoctrinated into a bizarre cult, but it just goes to show that truly anyone can be brainwashed. ‘Cause, no one who had a childhood dog named Tippi could be a complete weirdo, right?
