  • Bad examples are good for you. If crank religion is your ambrosia, if you love swimming in those heady fanatical waters, here are places to look. Just a few, because honestly, a little goes a long way.

What, more? Visit http://www.crank.net/religion.html for a huge list. Or visit the Gallery of the Gods, Donna Kossy's freeze-dried archive of religious kooks.

We're not insane, dammit, we're n-nov shmoz ka pop?

"Cranks live by theory, not by pure desire.
They want votes, peace, nuts, liberty, and spinning-looms
not because they love these things,
as a child loves jam,
but because they think they ought to have them.
That is one element which makes the crank."
Rose Macaulay
