Gospel according to Clarence Thomas, The

By (author): Ashis Gupta

The problem with Clarence Thomas is that he can get no satisfaction from the choices he makes in life — altar boy, a priesthood with the Maryknolls, Yale Law School, Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. All amazing accomplishments for a black boy from Pin Point, Georgia, but for Clarence, all somewhat “tainted” by nods from a white establishment offering special favors to disadvantaged blacks.

But his theological background in the Church, however brief, makes him an ideal candidate to write the “Gospel” recording and celebrating the life and deeds of George W. Bush. And that is precisely the role the U.S. President has in store for him.

This is a companion volume to The Acts of the Compassionates (Bayeux Arts).
