Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 8: $2640)

Learning the Bible With Alice Cooper

Alice, 63 — once barred from performing at a venue over claims his show was anti-Christian — is a substitute teacher at his local church.

He said: "You should see the look on people's faces. 'Alice Cooper teaching Bible class? But he's the spawn of the Devil!'"

The reformed alcoholic — whose shows involve fake blood, electric chairs and snakes — holds the lessons in Arizona, US.

Alice — real name Vincent Furnier — added: "Surely people get it by now — Alice is just a character. Alice hates going to church, but I go every Sunday."

School's Out star Alice, whose dad was a pastor, said he cleaned up his act after daughter Calico was born in 1981.

He said: "Before Cali came along I was living Alice's life. Every day was just one big party, fuelled by a bottle of whisky and case of beer."
