    I like Price and the Jesus Seminar, and Tim Callahan, but why do they poo poo Acharya S. It seems to me that they are all saying the same thing, and yet Acharya S, DM Murdock, gets dissed left and right. Do you know why? Anyways…awesome, enjoy the rest of your weekend. thanks.

    I think Price and Acharya S are friends now, or at least friendly. They appeared on The Infidel Guy radio show together. . .
