Blegging here, not for me, but for my son

...who just read Stranger in a Strange Land, and called with questions, hoping I'd read it. Had to admit it wasn't in my repertoire, although I remember it being all the rage at some point in my life.

It's not that he didn't understand it, it's that the friend who gave it to him to read told him that when published, it was seen as a very controversial commentary on religion, and, in fact, inspired a few cults of its own. Is this true, my son wanted to know. Why, he also wanted to know. I didn't know, but thought that some of you might.

So if you grok this, help us out here..
