Lenny Bruce and Bill Hicks talk Jesus

Some Lenny Bruce quotes. Like "Every day people are straying away from the church and going back to God."

And this one...

Bruce: "If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little electric chairs around their necks instead of crosses."

...reminded me of Bill Hicks' classic bit about Jackie and JFK:

Hicks: "A lot of Christians wear crosses around their necks. You think when Jesus comes back he ever wants to see a fucking cross? It's like going up to Jackie Onassis wearing a rifle pendant."
