"Faith nights" the new craze at ballparks

Just when your blogstress thought that the American religious landscape had reached its peak of fantasmagoria comes word, via The New York Times, of "Faith Nights" taking their place alongside Bat Days and Frisbee Nights. Michelle Boorstein reports that the Atlanta Braves have three Faith Nights planned for this season, while the Florida Marlins and the Arizona Diamondbacks intend to follow suit.

Herewith, Boorstein's description of a Faith Night event at a minor league football game:

Before kickoff, a Christian band called Audio Adrenaline entertained the crowd. Promoters gave away thousands of Bibles and bobblehead dolls depicting biblical characters like Daniel, Noah and Moses. And when the home team, the Birmingham Steeldogs, took the field, they wore specially made jerseys with the book and number of bible verses printed on the back.
As graven images go, bobbleheads are certainly a new twist on the old dashboard Jesus.

But if they dare to bobble the Big Ma (a.k.a., the Blessed Mother), there's gonna be some heck to pay your Webwench.
