Robert Schuller to Bury Evel Knievel

For another reason why this paper has been historically softer on the Reverend Robert Schuller than on Orange County's other wacky Christians (though read this article for proof we're not that soft), look no further than the announcement that Schuller will preside over Evel Knievel's funeral in Montana. Earlier this year, Schuller baptized the legendary daredevil at the Crystal Cathedral before millions of viewers on The Hour of Power. Good for Schuller to save one of Earth's most-wretched (more like wrenched!) souls--and shame on him for hawking this intimate moment for $15.
