And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth. (ASV)

Narrator: The Streets of Babylon are filled with the cowardly, unbelieving, vile, murderous, sexually immoral, magicians, idolaters, liars and Methodists. Whenever there's a dirty little job to do, one man is called upon to set things right. That man, whose name is Immanuel, is named Dirty Mary.
Dirty Mary : (Showing up at the Captain's office) You called me?
Captain Dagg : Depravity is natural to man; it is born with him, and not acquired in the progress of life. It is not to be ascribed to evil habit, or evil example. Evil habits are formed by evil doing; and evil doing would not be, if there were no evil propensity. Evil example would not everywhere exist, if human nature were not everywhere corrupt; and the tendency to follow evil example would not be so common, and so much to be guarded against, if it were not natural to man. The Scriptures clearly teach this doctrine. "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me." The psalmist did not mean to charge his mother with crime in these his humble confessions, but manifestly designs them to be an acknowledgment that his depravity was in-woven in his nature, and bore date from the very origin of his being. The Saviour taught, that which is born of the flesh, is flesh. The term flesh, which is here opposed to spirit, signifies, as it does in other places, our depraved nature. It traces human depravity up to our very birth.
Dirty Mary : So?
Captain Dagg : In concluding this brief inquiry into the origin of the Bible, we may admire and adore the wonderful providence of God, which has made his enemies the preservers and witnesses of his revelation. The Jews, who killed the prophets and crucified the Son of God himself, have preserved and transmitted the Scriptures of the Old Testament, and are now witnesses to the world of its divine origin, and the truth of its prophecies. The Roman Catholic Church, the great Antichrist, or man of sin, drunk with the blood of the saints, has transmitted to us the Scriptures of the New Testament, and now gives, in the same two-fold manner, its testimony to this part of the Sacred Volume.
Dirty Mary : I see. (Goes to office, turns on computer and starts cruising the message boards. Sees following message: "Dear Christian friend, my Hebrew/English dictionary translates "almah" as "young women". Of course, it is a 1997 dictionary so it could be out of date and one of my fellow congregates at Temple Beth I Hear You Calling owns stock in the publishing company so there could be some bias in favor of the Jews. Anyway, this is all just my opinion, I could be wrong. Sincerely, JoeWallack."
Dirty Mary flies off into a rage determined to find JoeWallack and bring him to justice for his blasphemy of the Holy Spirit.)
Collage of Dirty Mary combing the streets trying to find JoeWallack.
New Orleans - knocks on door of "Just Sleezing Through Motel". Shows post to Jimmy Swaggert. Swaggert shakes his head "no".
Airplane - sits down next to Reverend Schuler who is bound and gagged. Shows post and removes gag. Schuler shrieks at the top of his lungs, "I want a soufflé!!!". Covers ears and puts gag back on Schuler.
Rome - ushered into small, dark backroom of Vatican where Pope is playing poker with some Bishops. Shows post to Pope who takes a quick glance, gives an even quicker "no" shake and looks at hand which contains three kings (all hearts). Puts hand in pocket which comes up empty. Takes off crucifix around neck and throws it into pot.
A dejected Dirty Mary walks back to office when he notices that Temple Beth I Hear You Calling is located next door to his office building. Further, he sees a young man walking out holding a prayer book in one hand and "Groucho" glasses in the other.
Dirty Mary : (With menacing sneer). You JoeWallack? (JoeWallack freezes, then puts on Groucho glasses and tries to get away. Dirty Mary closes the distance like O.J. Simpson during a "blackout" while JoeWallack takes two steps and then trips over his own feet. Dirty Mary takes out large Bible, cocks it in arm and aims it threateningly at JoeWallack's head.) I know what yer thinking Pagan. Just how many gods are there in Christianity, five or six? There's the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, Satan, the Counselor and if Jesus died but was resurrected and will return, should he be counted twice? To tell you the truth I kind of lost track myself during two thousand years of theological excitement, changes inspired by the Holy Spirit and redactions. But seeing as Christianity is the most powerful religion in the world and will blow your soul clean off if I'm right and you're wrong, you have to ask yourself one question. "Do I feel lucky?". WELL PAGAN, DO YA?! (Moves Bible closer to JoeWallack's head with increasingly menacing sneer.)
JoeWallack : Okay, okay, don't throw the book at me. I accept Jesus as my personal lord and savior. (Dirty Mary slowly turns and starts to stoically walk away.) Wait a minute. I gots to know. Which version of the Bible is that?
Dirty Mary: (sneer on face gradually changes to a grin). KJV, 1954. It has so many mistranslations even I don't use it anymore, but I was in a hurry this morning and it was all I could find on the way out. (Throws Bible into nearby dumpster and starts whistling to self).
